This is governed by the security and privacy policies of their respective websites.

The information you provide to us only helps us support, personalize, and develop our services.

Online Classes:

When you send an audio on any class in Online Classes, we will use your mobile phone’s microphone to send your audio recording to our teacher. Athan Academy will save these audios and use this data to help improve the quality of Online Classes.

In the first course in Athan Academy, we have an option of sending audios in exercises as well but we do not save those audios. In Online Classes, however, your audios will be saved.

Athan Academy does not share any of your personal data with the teachers other than the name with which you have created your account on Athan Academy. You are free to choose whether you give permission to Athan Academy to use your mobile device’s microphone.

Marketing purposes:

The information you provide us directly after signing up, which includes your “Email Address,” is used to send you more personalized emails and newsletters regarding our exciting updates. Only registered users who have an account with IslamicFinder or those who have specifically subscribed to our newsletter fall under this category.

At any point in time, the user can unsubscribe from our newsletter. You will not receive any personalized emails from us once you unsubscribe to our newsletter.

Surveys that help us get feedback to improve our app are also sent to the users based on the App version number they are using. You are not obligated to respond to polls or surveys. We use “Device ID” to send personalized notifications and updates regarding our latest features.
