Terms & Conditions, and Privacy Policy

The following explains Education Above All Foundation’s (EAA) practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by EAA.

What information is collected by educationaboveall.org?

We collect personal information when you voluntarily submit it to us.

For example, donors may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information). If a donor, or a website visitor, contacts us by email they may provide us with their email address, and name. Providing data is required in these contexts in order for us to process your donations, requests, or respond to inquiries.

In addition to the personal information that you submit to us, we may collect personal information about you from reputable third parties, or automatically collect information using the following technologies:

Web Server Logs. Our web servers may collect certain information such as IP address, pages visited, time of visits, and referring website.

Cookies. Cookies are simple text files stored by your web browser that provide a method of distinguishing among donors and visitors to the website. EAA uses cookies to identify your browser as you visit pages on the EAA website or sites in the EAA media network. Cookies also allow EAA to provide more relevant, targeted content as you travel through sites in the EAA media network as appropriate.

Where do we transfer and store information?

EAA is based in the Qatar. However, our websites are hosted within ISO certified hosting facilities of Amazon Web Services, Inc. (owned and headquartered in United States). EAA utilizes the hosting facilities of Amazon’s hosting infrastructure in Ireland and Germany. As such any information transmitted to us may be stored, accessed, or processed in either Ireland or Germany. Residents of Qatar and some other countries, including residents of the European Union, should be aware that the laws of the Ireland, Germany, and the United States, and do not offer the same protections as the laws of your home country.

How do we use information?

We collect information primarily to accept donations, complete our charitable projects, and provide you with information concerning our programs, projects, and activities. We also use information for analytical purposes, to improve our website, our donor base, our outreach, or to respond to requests for information or merchandise. We may inform you of other purposes at the time that we collect some forms of information. For example, if you apply for a job we may collect information in order to process your job application.

With whom do we share information?

We do not trade, share, or sell information that you provide to us with other organizations who intend to use it only to market their products or services to you.

There may be instances in which we share your information with others. We may share your information, for example, in conjunction with your sponsorship of a certain project, as required by law, with law enforcement, to comply with legal process, to protect our legal rights, to protect the safety or security of a person, or to protect against fraud, criminal acts, or misconduct. We may also share your information with companies that provide us with services, or with a successor legal entity.

In order to complete the transactions for donations, your information will be transmitted to the following third parties: App Lab Software Trading W.L.L. (the donation system hosting partner), CyberSource - wholly-owned subsidiary of Visa Inc. (when donating via credit card) and Ooredoo Q.S.C. (when paying via mobile payment).

Our commitment to data security

To help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we and, our authorized third parties, have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information collected. For example, we secure our machines with mandated encryption protocols to secure our user/company data. We also use industry accepted tools and techniques such as SSL and two-factor authentication to protect against unauthorized access to our systems. Additionally, all sensitive information is stored in secure repositories both in- house as well as secure cloud-based, AES encrypted web apps.

Your access to data, and your choices

If you would like to access the data that we received from you, or make corrections to it, you may contact us at the email or mailing addresses provided at the end of this policy.

If you registered to receive communications from us and later change your mind, you may ask that your name and contact information be removed from our distribution list. You can send such a request to the email or mailing addresses at the end of this policy.

Some web browsers and devices permit you to broadcast a preference that you not be "tracked" online. At this time we do not modify your experience based upon whether such a signal is broadcast.
