This policy covers the Iwantaljazeera.net website and is applicable worldwide. We encourage you to read this privacy policy.

Collection of your personal information

When Al Jazeera English collects any personal information on our corporate website, we will express our need for the personal data at the point of collection. Personal information is any information that can be used to identify an individual, and may include, but is not limited to, name, email address, postal or other physical address, title, occupation, and other information required to provide a service, deliver a product, or carry out a transaction you have requested. Some of the reasons we collect your personal information include:

Help you find and contact your cable or satellite provider
Registration to newsletter subscriptions
Provide registered users a more personalized and meaningful experience on the Al Jazeera English website.
Uses of your personal information

We will only use your personal information in the way we specified when it was collected. We will not subsequently change the way your personal information is used without your consent. Some of the ways we may use your personal information include:

To provide customer feedback and support.
To understand more about you, so we can personalize newsletters and websites to your preferences. For example, allow you the opportunity to request specific information on products and services that may be of interest.
To allow you to forward information to another individual such as a friend or co-worker. Al Jazeera English does not store the personal information of the third party. We collect the information for the sole purpose of sending a one-time email. If you choose to use our referral service to inform a colleague or friend, we will only ask for a contact name and email address.

Non-personal information collection

We do not sell or rent your personal information to third-parties for marketing purposes unless you have granted us permission to do so.

Sharing your personal information

In some instances, Al Jazeera English may collect non-personal (aggregate or demographic) data through cookies, web logs, and web beacons. This information is used to better understand and improve the usability, performance, and effectiveness of the Al Jazeera English.com website.

We may share your personal information within Al Jazeera English or any of our worldwide subsidiaries for purposes of data processing or storage.

We may also share your personal information with authorized third-party agents or contractors in order to provide a requested service or transaction. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We only provide third-party agents with the minimum amount of personal information necessary to complete the requested service or transaction.

We may respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process by disclosing your personal information and other related information, if necessary. We also may choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.

We may collect and possibly share personal information and any other additional information available to us in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Al Jazeera English's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

While navigating Al Jazeera English's web site you may be directed to content or functionality that is hosted by a third party supplier, not on iwantaljazeera.net. When information is collected on behalf of Al Jazeera English exclusively, Al Jazeera English's privacy policy will be referenced on the site and will govern how your information is used. For other, non-Al Jazeera English sites, the site owner's privacy policy will be referenced. It is Al Jazeera English's practice to require such suppliers to handle information in a manner consistent with Al Jazeera English's privacy and security policies.

We will ask you for your opt-in consent to share your personal information with a third party for any other reason.

Security of your personal information

Al Jazeera English is committed to protecting the personal information you share with us. We utilize a combination of security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.

When we transfer sensitive personal data (for example, credit card information) over the Internet, we protect it using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology.

While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit.

We recommend you to take every precaution in protecting your personal information when you are on the Internet. For example, change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers when creating passwords, and make sure you use a secure browser.

Data retention

Al Jazeera English will not retain your personal information longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.

Linked websites

Our websites may provide links to other third-party websites which are outside our control and not covered by this policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policies posted on these (and all) sites.

Children's privacy

If we learn that we have collected personal information on a child under the age of 13, we will delete that data from our systems. Al Jazeera English encourages parents and guardians to go online with their children. Here are a few tips to help make a child's online experience safer:

Teach children never to give personal information (such as name, address, phone number, school, etc.) unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult.
Know the sites your children are visiting and which sites are appropriate.
Look for website privacy policies. Know how your child's information is treated.

We may transfer your personal information to Al Jazeera Network, to any Al Jazeera Network subsidiary worldwide, or to third parties acting on our behalf for the purposes of processing or storage.
