AL KADER SHRINERS ELECTRONIC AND ONLINE PRIVACY POLICY

Updated January 30, 2019

Your privacy is important to us at Al Kader Shriners. We wish to explain our Shrine Temple’s electronic and online information practices and the choices you can make about how your information is used in connection with our website (www.alkadershriners.org) and other electronic or online communications with the firm. The following privacy policy does not address information collected through other means, such as transmittals through attendance at our events or other personal contacts which you might make with a representative of Al Kader Shriners.

In accessing our website or otherwise communicating with our Shrine Temple via electronic or other online means, please know that you are deemed to have consented to the collection, processing, use, and transfer of your Personal Identification Information ("PII"), which includes but is not limited to your name, company name, email address, telephone number or any other related contact information, in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable laws. By doing so, you agree that the laws of the State of Oregon, without regard to its conflict of laws principles, will govern all matters between you and our Shrine Temple concerning your use of this website and all other electronic and other online communications with the firm.

All PII which you transmit electronically to Al Kader Shriners is treated with care. Our Shrine Temple employs appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access to your PII against its loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or alteration. However, Al Kader Shriners cannot guarantee the security of your PPI because data transmissions via the Internet are susceptible to interference. Al Kader Shriners is not liable for disclosures of your PII due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties.

Al Kader Shriners is not obligated to monitor this website or its use, or to retain the content of any user session. Al Kader Shriners does not share, rent or sell your PII outside our Shrine Temple. However, Al Kader Shriners reserves the right at all times to monitor, review, retain, and/or disclose any PII as necessary to satisfy applicable laws, regulations, legal process, or formal governmental requests, and to cooperate with law enforcement and other authorities in investigating a claim of illegal activity. PII may also be shared with Al Kader Shriners’ external service providers who may from time to time perform certain services on our Shrine Temple’s behalf to improve our efficiency; these providers agree to use the transferred PII only as needed to perform their services and they are subject to nondisclosure agreements. Al Kader Shriners may use Internet Service Provider ("ISP") addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to protect our service, website, visitors, users, or others.

The Al Kader Shriners’ website is hosted on web servers located in the United States. If you are located in a non-U.S. jurisdiction, your provision of PII or other access to the KDK website constitutes your transfer of such data to the United States, a jurisdiction that may not provide an equivalent level of data protection to the laws in your home country.

You do not disclose any PII when you visit the Al Kaders’ website. We collect only anonymous, non-PII data when you visit our website, such as the type of browser you use and the domain name of your ISP. We use this anonymous, non-PII data strictly to analyze site usage and thereby evaluate how to improve our website's design and content. Any such data is shared, if appropriate, only within the firm's offices for our internal use.

Copies of Al Kader’s periodic electronic newsletter, the "Oasis,"" are archived with this website. If you receive an electronic copy of the Oasis, or other periodic email notifications, or other electronic materials, you also will be provided with a link to opt out or unsubscribe from further transmittals. If you continue to receive unwanted electronic newsletters or similar unwanted notifications from Al Kader Shriners, please contact Al Kader Shrine Center at 503-682-4420 or email support@alkadershriners.org.

The Al Kader Shriners’ website, its periodic electronic newsletters and email notifications, and all other electronic materials, are not directed to children under 13 years of age. Any person under 18 years of age should consult with their parent or legal guardian regarding use of the Al Kader Shriners’ website, its periodic electronic newsletters, email notifications, and all other electronic materials.

Any PII which you provide to us is used strictly to respond to your inquiry. However, we cannot guarantee the privacy of such information which you transmit to us and it cannot be protected from disclosure.

To the extent that copies of our Shrine Temple’s electronic newsletter, email notifications, or other electronic materials are archived in our website, the website contains occasional informational posts about programs and events that are sponsored or co-sponsored by other organizations, including links to other websites whose information practices may be different than others. You should consult those other websites' privacy notices because we have no control over information that is either submitted to, or collected by, the administrators of those websites.

Please know that the Al Kader Shriners’ website uses cookies. Generally speaking, a cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the browser on your computer's hard drive so that the website can remember your electronic identity for future access. Al Kader Shriners uses cookies to enable the personalization features of our website, and to let us compile anonymous statistical information that allows us to understand how you use our website in order that we may improve the website's structure. We cannot obtain any PII about you through the use of cookies. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings in your browser. Please note, though, that you might be unable to access every feature in our website if cookies are disabled.

Al Kader Shriners appreciates the trust that you give us when transmitting your PII to us. We are committed to maintaining your trust, and invite your feedback on how we can improve the quality of our service to you. Al Kader Shriners will maintain your PII as long as reasonably needed to achieve the purpose for which we possess it, or to the extent that we need to protect its rights, or as required by applicable law.

If you have any questions or concerns about Al Kader Shriners’ electronic and online privacy policy or its implementation, or if you decide that Al Kader Shriners should no longer hold any of your PII, kindly contact Al Kader Shrine Center at 503-682-4420 or email support@alkadershriners.org.
