This Privacy Policy applies to information we (Arab Image Foundation) collect about individuals who interact with our organisation. It explains what personal information we collect and how we use it.

  1. 1

    Personal data we process
    In general, you can visit www.arabimagefoundation.org at any time without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. The following table explains the types of data we collect and the legal basis, under current data protection legislation, on which this data is processed.

  1. 2

    How we use your data
    We will only use your data in a manner that is appropriate considering the basis on which that data was collected, as set out in the table at the top of this policy.

    For example, we may use your personal information to:
  • reply to enquiries you send us;
  • handle donations or other transactions that you initiate;
  • where you have specifically agreed to this, send you information by email relating to our work which we think may be of interest to you.
  1. 3

    When we share your data
    We will only pass your data to third parties in the following circumstances:
  • you have provided your explicit consent for us to pass data to a named third party;
  • we are using a third party purely for the purposes of processing data on our behalf and we have in place a data processing agreement with that third party that fulfils our legal obligations in relation to the use of third party data processors; or
  • we are required by law to share your data.

  • In addition, we will only pass data to third parties outside of the EU where appropriate safeguards are in place as defined by Article 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation.
  1. 4

    How long we keep your data
    We take the principles of data minimisation and removal seriously and have internal policies in place to ensure that we only ever ask for the minimum amount of data for the associated purpose and delete that data promptly once it is no longer required.

  1. 5

    Rights you have over your data
    You have a range of rights over your data, which include the following:
  • Where data processing is based on consent, you may revoke this consent at any time and we will make it as easy as possible for you to do this (for example by putting ‘unsubscribe’ links at the bottom of all our marketing emails).
  • You have the right to ask for rectification and/or deletion of your information.
  • You have the right of access to your information.

  • If you would like to access the rights listed above, or any other legal rights you have over your data under current legislation, please get in touch with us.

    Please note that relying on some of these rights, such as the right to deleting your data, will make it impossible for us to continue to deliver some services to you. However, where possible we will always try to allow the maximum access to your rights while continuing to deliver as many services to you as possible.
