We take care to ensure that we use your information in accordance with all applicable laws concerning the protection of personal information. This privacy notice covers:
The type of information we collect and hold about you will depend on whether or not you are a member of Imamia Medics International (past or present), a registered user of our website or simply browsing our resources or contacting us for other purposes.
If for any reason you give us personal information on behalf of or about someone else, you should ensure that you have the right to provide us with that information, and direct that person to this Policy to inform them how we will process their data.
The legal basis that we rely on will depend upon the circumstances in which we collect and use your personal information. In almost all cases, our processing of your personal information will fall into one of the following categories:
These legitimate interests may include:
The type and amount of information we receive and store depends on how you use the Imamia Medics International Websites and/or Imamia Medics International Applications. You can access most of the pages on the Imamia Medics International Websites without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information.
you will be asked to submit personal information.
This may include your name, surname, your Imamia Medics International membership or professional specialties, license, date of birth, address, phone number and email address. For other services, we may require further personal details. We may collect your bank account details when setting up a regular direct debit, a credit card or debit card number when processing payments by card, and details about your taxpayer status when claiming Gift Aid. We may even collect your opinions when you complete surveys, enter competitions or respond to questions from us. We gather this information to allow us to process your registrations, applications or any services you require.
If you are an Imamia Medics International member, we collect additional information about you in your membership application including your religious affiliation given our membership criteria requirement. We may also collect information during the course of your membership about the services you use, your preferences, responses to surveys, attendance at events and other contact you have with us (including use of any of our services).
Finally, we may monitor and record communications with you (such as telephone conversations and emails) for the purpose of quality assurance, training, fraud prevention and compliance.
Imamia Medics International may at its discretion make available from time to time on its website, or by way of device apps, social tools to allow users of the website or members of Imamia Medics International to communicate, including networking or posting their own content (for e.g. an Imamia Medics International discussion forum).
All members of Imamia Medics International and registered users of the website may use these social tools when logged in to the website.
Your profile name will be set as default to the name that you used when joining Imamia Medics International or signing up for an account on an Imamia Medics International website. You may be able to change the name displayed or add other information to your profile, including an image, if you want to. Instructions will be provided with each tool, but these will not change your Imamia Medics International contact details.
If you use such services, you understand that (unless otherwise specified) any content you post, including personal data based on your settings, may be available to other members of the website or Imamia Medics International, or may be published publicly.
Remember your posts may be read by others: please act in a professional and courteous manner at all times. You are responsible for any content you post. If you have any concerns about something you have posted, you are able to edit or delete your User Content at your discretion.

We may (but are not obliged to) access, preserve, and disclose any content posted by you in order to: comply with any legal process; enforce these terms; respond to any disputes; or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Imamia Medics International or others.
Sensitive personal information is information which relates to issues including your health, sexual orientation, race or religion. We may obtain sensitive personal information about you if you volunteer it during any of your contact with us.
If you are a member of Imamia Medics International, the fact of your membership is itself sensitive personal information (given our membership criteria includes your religious affiliation). We will not share details of your membership of Imamia Medics International with third parties to use for their own purposes without your consent.
We have additional obligations to treat sensitive personal information with appropriate care, taking into account the nature of that information. The best way to restrict the processing of your sensitive personal data is not to give it to us unless it is necessary for the services you are obtaining from us.
However, if you do volunteer such information or join Imamia Medics International, you consent to us processing your sensitive personal information for the purposes for which you have provided the information, or as either explicitly or impliedly communicated to you at the time you provided the information. In particular, you consent to us using our service providers in the normal course of business to process that sensitive personal data under an appropriate contract with us.
You also consent to us confirming the existence of your membership to approved providers who you wish to obtain services from where either the services are only available to Imamia Medics International members or a benefit (such as a discount) is provided by those providers to Imamia Medics International members.
If you do not consent to this use of your sensitive personal information, you must let us know when you provide us with this information, or contact us. Please note that if you do not wish to consent to such use, you may be restricted in the services you are able to obtain from Imamia Medics International.
We carefully manage the communications we send you to ensure we are contacting you in the most appropriate way. If you ask us to stop contacting you, we will, unless we are legally obliged to communicate with you.
We may use the personal information we collect from you to:
The information you provide will not be sold or rented nor will it be shared with third parties unless we have your permission, or are required to disclose the information by law or in the following circumstances:
The disclosure of your personal information discussed above may involve transfer of that information outside of the UK and European Union. Countries outside of the European Union, such as the United States, may not have data privacy laws as strong as those in force in the European Union.
Imamia Medics International has robust measures in place to ensure our physical and technical systems are secure. We take appropriate precautions to protect all personal information we keep on our database, including using encryption and monitoring access to our secure networks and systems.
We also take care to ensure we have secure systems for processing your payment information, such as your credit card or debit card details. Our current payment service providers use a range of methods to protect your personal information including secure payment gateways, fraud screening and IP address blocking.
Such details are transmitted in an encrypted manner via a Secure Socket Layer (SSL). Similar details collected through other sources (for example by telephone or surface mail) are stored in accordance with relevant legislation. No financial details are passed to third parties without your explicit permission or unless we are required to do so by law.
Despite our best efforts to protect your personal information electronically, the security of information sent over the internet cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure and may be illegally intercepted or changed after it has been sent. Imamia Medics International cannot accept liability for this if this happens.
We have processes in place to review how we communicate with you, especially in situations where you have not engaged with us for a while, or where the circumstances of how you interact with us change. Where you tell us that you no longer want our updates, we will act on this as soon as we can.
Where needed, we may contact you for administrative purposes using the contact details that you have given us - for example, in relation to sending receipts, tax deduction details or Gift Aid claims or to send Imamia Medics International member products as part of your membership subscription benefit.
You can change your contact preferences at any time. This includes telling us that you don’t want us to contact you for marketing purposes.
You can do this quickly and easily by:
This privacy notice may change from time to time. For example, we may update this notice to reflect any relevant changes to legislation and regulation, and any changes to Imamia Medics International policy.
