PURPOSE

This document sets out our policy for responding to requests for deletion of data under Canadian law. This document explains the rights of the data subject in relation to data deletion and the responsibilities of My Islam in responding with such a request.

INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS

An individual has the right to erasure, also known as ‘the right to be forgotten’ or ‘right of erasure’. The principle underpinning this right is to enable an individual to request the deletion or removal of personal data where there is no compelling reason for its continued processing.

WHEN DOES THE RIGHT TO ERASURE APPLY?

As stipulated in Canadian law, individuals have a right to have personal data erased and to prevent processing in specific circumstances:

  • Where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed;
  • When the individual withdraws consent;
  • When the individual objects to the processing and there is no other legal ground for the relevant processing activity;
  • When the personal data was unlawfully processed;
  • Where the personal data has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation;

WHAT INFORMATION DOES MY ISLAM RETAIN?

After account deletion My Islam does not retain any data about individual. All email records, username, data is permanently deleted and cannot be restored.

HOW CAN DATA BE DELETED?

A user of My Islam, can follow the instructions within the app to delete their user account.

After which we'll process the request and delete the data which cannot be recovered by any users or My Islam employees after this point. Data which has been deleted or otherwise destroyed can not be recovered at any time. Sufficient warning is given to the account administrator before data are permanently deleted.
