Your privacy is very important to us. At Fatuma’s Voice Foundation, we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:

Fatuma’s Voice Foundation (“Fatuma’s Voice”) operates several web platforms. It is Fatuma’s Voice’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Fatuma’s Voice collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Fatuma’s Voice’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to understand better how Fatuma’s Voice’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Fatuma’s Voice may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Fatuma’s Voice also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. Fatuma’s Voice only discloses the logged-in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Fatuma’s Voice websites choose to interact with Fatuma’s Voice in ways that require us to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that Fatuma’s Voice gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address.

In each case, Fatuma’s Voice collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Fatuma’s Voice. Fatuma’s Voice does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Fatuma’s Voice may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, Fatuma’s Voice may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spam.

Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Fatuma’s Voice websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example, via a support email or one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
