Privacy Policy

On Pious Hearts, privacy is our top priority, which is why we designed our services with that in mind. The top concern individuals have with matrimonial sites is the lack of privacy, and that is why we have built a website where nonmembers and members cannot view another member’s profile. We conceal everyone’s identity because this is not a dating site or a shopping catalog, but rather a well thought out, Islamic-based site where your identity is protected. Pioushearts.com has established this privacy policy to explain to you how your information is protected, collected and used, which may be updated by Pious Hearts from time to time.

You may get an email to notify you of any updates or changes to our privacy policy. It is the member’s responsibility to review the privacy policy as modifications to this policy will and can be made anytime. By using our website, you agree to this privacy policy as well as to the Terms and Conditions.

Collecting Data

To register on Pious Hearts, you give us your consent to collect information about you, including but not limited to your name, address, birth date, age, gender, profession, and email address. Any information you provide us we keep. We will not share this information with other members and affiliated organizations unless in the event of trying to make a match with a potential candidate. The Pious Hearts team understand and are advised of the importance of the privacy and confidentiality of information our members have provided.

Profile Information: We may share the information you provided on your profile page with third party affiliated organizations and marketing companies.

Access Device and Browser Information: When you access Pious Hearts from a computer, mobile phone or another device, we may collect information from that device about your browser type, location, and IP address, as well as the pages you visit.

Cookie Information: We use “cookies” (small pieces of data we store for an extended period of time on your computer, mobile phone, or another device) to make Pious Hearts easier to use, to make advertising better, and to protect both you and Pious Hearts. For example, we use them to store your login ID (but never your password) to make it easier for you to login whenever you come back to Pious Hearts. We also use them to confirm that you are logged into Pious Hearts, our widgets, and Share buttons, and advertisements posted on Pious Hearts. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use Pious Hearts.

Pious Hearts does not store credit card information. Credit card transactions are transmitted to a financial gateway, and we endeavor to protect the security of your payment information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.

Our web logs collect standard web log entries for each page served, including your IP address, page URL, and timestamp. Weblogs help us to diagnose problems with our server, to administer the Pious Hearts website, and to otherwise provide our service to you.

How We Protect Your Privacy

Each member on Pious Hearts must create and have their unique login and password. Your login and password can be stored on your computer’s browser with the use of Cookies (see above point).

We keep your account information on a secured server behind a firewall (established through hosting companies). When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card numbers and passwords), we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We also use automated and social measures to enhance security, such as analyzing account behavior for fraudulent or otherwise anomalous behavior, may limit use of site features in response to possible signs of abuse, may remove inappropriate content or links to illegal content, and may suspend or disable accounts for violations of our Terms of Service.

Although we have employed appropriate security measures to protect your information, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of potential prospects with whom we share your information. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We cannot ensure that information you share on Pious Hearts will not become publicly available. We are not responsible for third party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures on Pious Hearts. You can reduce these risks by using common sense security practices such as choosing a strong password, using different passwords for different services, and using up to date antivirus software.

We may send you emails about exciting news, events, promotions, blogs, and information only pertaining to Pious Hearts, but you can stop receiving such emails by unsubscribing from them at any time.

Please read carefully: Pious Hearts is not above the law and we value the safety and well-being of members and non-members alike. Therefore, you should know that we may be required by law to release information or make disclosures without express or implied consent to comply with such mandates as court orders, subpoenas, law enforcement investigations, search warrants. We may also share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activity, to prevent imminent bodily harm, or to protect ourselves and you from people violating our Terms of Service. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, courts or other government entities.

In the event the disclosure or release of your information is sought by a third-party, for reasons other than the ones listed above, we will ask for your consent before we release or disclose any information about you.

We generally limit search engines’ access to our website. We may allow them to access information if users allow their information to be viewed publicly. To help improve or promote the service we sometimes share aggregated information with third parties to help improve or promote our service. But we only do so in such a way that no individual user can be identified or linked to any specific action or information.

We may provide information to service providers that help us bring you the services we offer. For example, we may use third parties to help host our website, market and send out email updates about Pious Hearts, remove repetitive information from our user lists, process payments, or provide search results or links (including sponsored links). These service providers may have access to your personal information for use for a limited time, but when this occurs, we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to help us provide the service.

If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner so that the service can continue to operate. In such a case, your information would remain subject to any pre-existing Privacy Policy.
