How We Use This Information

  • To allow us to provide our services to you, and to improve and promote our Services.
  • To create and manage your account, contact you and personalize your experience on IslamicFundraising (for example, to show you projects that we think you may be interested in based on past usage).

Data processing in the EU

The data protection law in Europe requires a "legal basis" to collect and retain personal information from citizens or residents of the European Economic Area.

Our legal bases include:

ulfilment of the contract we have with you: In certain circumstances, we need your personal data to fulfil our contractual obligation to deliver the services, to allow creators to establish and show their projects, and to allow sponsors to find you and make promises to you.

Legal compliance: sometimes the law says we need to collect and use your data. For example, tax laws require that we keep records of promises and payments made through our Services.


Legitimate interests - This is a technical term in data protection law that essentially means that we have a good and just reason to use your data and we do so in a way that does not harm your interests and rights. Sometimes, we require your data to pursue our legitimate interests in a way that is reasonably expected as part of running our business and that it does not materially affect your rights, freedom, or interests.

For example, we use identity, device, and location information to prevent fraud and abuse and to keep our Services secure. We may also send you promotional communications about our Services, subject to your right to control whether we do so.

We analyse how users interact with our website so that we can better understand which design elements work well and which do not. This allows us to improve and develop the quality of the experience that we offer to all our users.

How this information is shared


Information that is shared publicly

When you create an account, we create a basic profile page for you on IslamicFundraising, containing your username, the date the account was created, and a list of projects that you have supported or launched. By default, your profile is private and you can choose to make it public in your account settings. Your username appears with the comments you post and messages you send on IslamicFundraising, and if your profile is set to public, people can click on your username to view it. If you make your profile public, others will see the following:


  • The username of the account and the date the account was created.
  • Any information you choose to add to your profile (such as a picture, bio, or location).
  • Projects to which you have made a financial contribution, not mentioning the amount contributed.
  • Projects you have created.
  • Comments you have posted on IslamicFundraising.
  • If you "liked" an update of the project.

If you want to have a public profile, but don't want others to see your name or profile picture in the community tab of a project, you can choose a fictitious picture or account name (for example, Ironman).



You can modify or delete certain information associated with your account (such as your username, profile picture, bio, and location) from your account settings, and you can change your privacy settings if you want your profile to be private or adjust the default settings.

Creators are also asked to verify their identities before launching a project. Once this is done, the creator's verified name will be publicly displayed in their account profile and in the projects they start.

Information that is not publicly shared

The following information will not be publicly displayed or disclosed to other users:

  • Any payment information you provide.
  • Your password
  • Your IP address;
  • Your phone number;
  • Your date of birth and other identity verification documentation.
  • Private profile information, according to your preferences.
  • Communications you send us (for example, when you request assistance, send us questions or comments, or report a problem).


Information that is shared with our trusted partners


We may share your information with certain trusted third-party services to help us provide, improve, promote or protect the IslamicFundraising Services (such as when we partner with payment processors or use services that help us to manage our advertisements on other sites). When we share data with third party services that support our project, we require that they use your information only for the purposes we have authorized, and that they protect your personal information to at least the same standards as we do.


Information that is shared with creators and collaborators.


When you support a project, the project creator will know your username, the amount you've donated, and the rewards you've selected. Campaign creators never receive credit card details or other payment information from supporters.



If a project you have supported is successfully funded, the campaign creator will receive the email address associated with your IslamicFundraising account.

Campaign creators must keep sponsor information confidential, except when strictly necessary to communicate directly with sponsors and fulfil rewards. Creators should not request personal information that is not necessary to provide your reward, and they should never request sensitive personal information such as your social security number or payment information. Contact us at if you receive a request for information that seems inappropriate or excessive.

Collaborators are third parties that campaign creators work with to help them manage and promote the project. These collaborators may be able to access information available to creators (including sponsor names, email addresses, donation amounts, reward selections, messages, and survey responses), and they should treat sponsors' personal information with the same care.

Campaign creators and their collaborators can also receive routine traffic analysis on their project pages.

Information that is shared to protect IslamicFundraising and comply with the law

We reserve the right to disclose personal information when we believe that doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with the law or law enforcement, to prevent fraud or abuse, or to protect rights legal, property or security of IslamicFundraising, its employees, users or others.


Links to other websites and services

Our site may include links to other websites or services whose privacy practices may differ from those of IslamicFundraising. When you use a link to an external site or service, the privacy policy and data processing disclosures for that site or service is governed by the website in question.

Data Retention We will retain your information for as long as your account is active, as necessary to provide the Services to you or as set forth in this Policy. We will also retain and use this information as necessary for the purposes set out in this policy and to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and protect the legal rights of IslamicFundraising.

We also collect and maintain aggregated, anonymous, or pseudonymized information that we may retain indefinitely to protect the security of our site, improve our Services, or comply with legal obligations.


Your rights

These rights include the ability to access, correct and request deletion of your personal information. While these rights do not apply globally, all IslamicFundraising users can manage their personal information, as described below, in their account settings.

To modify or delete the personal information you have provided to us, please log in and update your profile. You can also delete your account from your account settings page. We may retain certain information as required by law or as necessary for our legitimate business purposes.

Email and mobile notifications

We want to contact you only if you want to hear from us. You can always unsubscribe to not receive such communications.

We will send you an email regarding your transactions on IslamicFundraising.

You can also choose to receive certain marketing communications by email, in accordance with your preferences, and from which you can unsubscribe at any time by adjusting the notification settings.

We will also send you announcements according to your interests.  But no spam!


We take the security of our users' data very seriously. For this, we implement the standard practices of the industry to protect said data such as the use of TLS & SSL. We also use a tool to prevent attacks 24h/7h.

That said, no page is totally immune from possible attacks. So IslamicFundraising cannot guarantee absolute security, but it can take all possible measures to protect our users' data.
