Privacy Policy

Under no circumstances will Alhoush sell your email addresses or personal information to third parties. This Privacy Policy describes how we treat the information we collect when you visit our website and/or have received any emails from Alhoush.

In order to send you e-mail from Alhoush (if any), we need your e-mail address. To provide you with additional services, we may also request your name, geographical coordinates, and telephone number. Alhoush does not collect any other personal information that you do not expressly provide. Alhoush will not sell, rent or share your personal information, including your e-mail address, with any third parties for marketing purposes without your express permission. Alhoush may share your personal information for the purpose of delivering our e-mail to you or as required by law. If you place an order for goods or services through Alhoush, you may be required to enter your credit card number and information, as well as your shipping address and/or other contact information.

We may also request non-personally identifiable information, such as buying preferences, or age, also known as demographic and profile data, though this information is optional. We may use this data to improve our website and/or customize your experience on our site, showing you content that we think you might be interested in, and displaying content according to your preferences. We may also share this information with others, such as advertisers interested in advertising on our site, in aggregate, anonymous form, which means that the information will not contain any personally identifiable information about you or any other person.

If you choose to become an Alhoush artist, you will have a Profile page on the site, containing your username and some basic information related to your location, biography, and creative interests (in addition to images of your Artworks). You may also add additional optional information to your Profile. Alhoush controls when your Profile page becomes visible to others on the site through the Administrator's Account Settings. Links to your Profile Page may be included on other Alhoush web pages from time to time, such as when Alhoush features your Profile or one of your Artworks on its Homepage and/or as part of the Alhoush Newsletter. If you send a message to another Alhoush Artist or to an Alhoush User through a future Alhoush internal Messages feature, that person may be informed of your email address. PLEASE NOTE THAT, REGARDLESS OF WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION A MEMBER CHOOSES TO INCLUDE IN HIS OR HER PROFILE, CERTAIN INFORMATION ABOUT EACH MEMBER WILL BE INCLUDED IN THAT MEMBER'S PUBLIC PROFILE AND MAY BE ACCESSIBLE TO ANYONE VISITING THAT PROFILE PAGE ON THE ALHOUSH WEBSITE.

If you choose to register to become a User in the Alhoush online community, you will have to enter a username and password as well as your email address. You will not have a Profile page on the site, but you will be entitled to comment on Artists' Profiles and individual Artworks, become an official "Fan" of any Artist, and to send messages to Alhoush Artists or other Alhoush Users through a future Alhoush internal Messages feature.  When you send messages, the recipient may be informed of your email address.

This site makes forums and comment boards available to its Artists and Users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. Exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information. Although we value individual ideas and encourage free expression, Alhoush reserves the right to take necessary action to preserve the forum's integrity, such as removing any posting that is vulgar, off-topic, or inappropriate.

In addition to collecting personal and non-personal information, Alhoush may also collect non-personal, aggregated information about subscribers' use of our site. This information is not personally identifiable and will only be used to find out how subscribers use our service and site. For example, this information will tell us how much time users spend on our site, from which other sites subscribers come, and to what other sites subscribers go. The collection of this information allows us to, among other things, prepare for traffic load demands and to efficiently deliver relevant information.

Alhoush may work with third-parties, including non-profit organizations, public institutions, sponsors, media, retail outlets, advertising companies, and other companies with whom we collaborate or do business ("Partners"), to place announcements and/or advertising on our site and in email communications sent to our registered users regarding Alhoush services. Information about your visit to the Alhoush site, such as the number of times you have viewed an ad, may be used to serve advertising to you on this site. Alhoush may correlate or match registered Users' information, including Personally Identifiable Information, with information held by our Partners to target announcements, promotions, and/or ads to otherwise improve the effectiveness of our service. Our Partners cannot read or set cookies on your hard drive, use pixel tags, track which ads you have viewed, or collect other information about you. 

From time to time, Alhoush may also have special offers or promotions that are sponsored by a Partner. In order to participate in these offers, you may be required to follow a separate registration process. If you consent to receive information from a Partner, through an opt-in or opt-out process, Alhoush may pass your information to such Partner.

Alhouhs may also offer goods or services for purchase that are also available by our Partners. If you purchase goods or services offered through Alhoush by a Partner, then you may be required to submit Personally Identifiable Information in order to complete the transaction and Alhoush may provide your Personally Identifiable Information to such Partner for that purpose.

Upon your registration, Alhoush receives immediate notification that you have signed up to become an Alhoush Artist. Once notified of this activity, Alhoush administrators will review your Profile page and all uploaded information and/or images.  Only when Alhoush administrators are finished with their review will your Profile become visible to others. As an Alhoush Artist, you have access to all the information we collect about you. You will have an opportunity to correct, update or modify this information.

If we ever send you information by e-mail concerning new products or services, such as the Alhoush newsletter, that you did not expressly request, we will also provide an Unsubscribe feature by which you may request no future notices.

Like most sites, Alhoush may make use of browser "cookies." Cookies are strings of text and numbers that can identify your computer to us when you visit our site. They allow us to see if you have logged in, check your status as a member, and facilitate access to your preferences. Alhoush will not use cookies to retrieve information from a computer that is unrelated to our site or services.

When you visit our site, we log standard information such as your IP address, which is a number that can be used to identify your location and Internet Service Provider, along with the URL from which you came to our site and the URLs visited on our site. An URL is the full address of a Web site page, which may or may not contain some Personally Identifiable Information about the person who is viewing it.
When we send messages to you or others, we may provide an URL link to the Alhoush site that contains an alphanumeric identifier, which allows us to identify the person to whom we sent the message so that we can personalize our content for that individual.

Some of the ads appearing on our website may be delivered by one of our advertising partners. Information about your visit to their sites, such as the number of times you have viewed an ad (but not your name, address, or other personal information), may be used to serve ads to you.

In the event Alhoush goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, users' personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.

As part of the services we provide, Alhoush may create links allowing you to access third party sites. Alhoush is not responsible for the content that appears on those sites. Please consult those sites' individual privacy policies in order to determine how they treat user information.

All information described above is stored on restricted database servers.

Alhoush reserves the right to change this policy from time to time. If we do make changes, the revised Privacy Statement will be posted on our Web site.

If you have any questions about this policy or our site in general, please contact us at info(a) or by phone at +962-6-463-1133.
