Beshara Magazine Privacy Policy – May 2018

Beshara Magazine is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of visitors to our website and subscribers to our newsletter. Here you’ll find information on how we treat data that we collect from visitors to our website, or when someone subscribes to our newsletter.

Who we are

Beshara Magazine is published by The Beshara Trust, a UK-based educational charity (Reg. nos. 296769 England & Wales, SC039933 Scotland). It is supported entirely by donations and voluntary work.

Newsletter Sign Up

As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter, we collect the personal information that you submit to us. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses. Personal information is never shared with other organisations or charities for marketing purposes.

We use a third party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.

You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails or by emailing trust@beshara.org.

Visitors to our website

besharamagazine.org we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way which does not identify anyone.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment. If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

 

The Beshara Trust will review and update this Privacy Policy and make changes as required. In accordance with Data Protection Regulations, we will delete or stop, update or change any data held. Any request for personal data made via the contact link on the website or by contacting trust@beshara.org will be upheld.
