What personal and other information Amani collects about you
Amani collects “personal information” about users of the Services. “Personal information” is information such as a name, email address, or identification card image, which refers to an identified or identifiable person. Amani processes personal information on behalf of the Third-Party Data Controller. For its own purposes, Amani processes only anonymized information. “Anonymized information” is information which does not relate to an identified or identifiable person or is rendered anonymous in such a manner that the person is no longer identifiable.
Amani collects a wide range of personal information through the Services. This information varies depending on the Amani application and the Third-Party Data Controller in question, but may include such information as name, physical address, email address, telephone number, social security number, driver’s license number, state or national ID card number, passport number, date of birth. In some cases, Amani may collect a visually scanned or photographed image of your face and/or your identification card, driver’s license, passport, utility bill, bank account statement, insurance card, or credit/debit card. This image may include your photograph and other information from the imaged document, such as your eye colour, weight, height, and organ donor status.
Data provided by third parties.
At the direction of the Third-Party Data Controller, Amani also might obtain information about you from other third parties, such as consumer reporting agencies and fraud-prevention services.

We also may use your personal information to fulfill the terms of any agreement between us and the Third-Party Data Controller; to complete a transaction that you initiate; to deliver confirmations, account information, notifications, and similar operational communications; and to comply with legal and/or regulatory requirements.

Third-Party Data Controller
We share the personal and pseudonymized information that we collect on behalf of a particular Third-Party Data Controller with that Third-Party Data Controller.
Amani service providers
Amani also uses third-party service providers to help us deliver, manage, and improve the Services. These service providers may collect and/or use your personal information or anonymized information to assist us in achieving the purposes discussed above in the section entitled “How we use the personal and non-personal information that we collect.” For example, we use a third party to help us translate the information contained in scanned images of identification cards.
We also may share your personal information with other third parties when necessary to fulfill your requests for services; to complete a transaction that you initiate; or to meet the terms of any agreement that you have with us or our partners.
We partner with certain other third parties to collect anonymized information and engage in analysis, auditing, research, and reporting.
We also may use or share your personal information with third parties when we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary:
- to comply with applicable law or a court order, subpoena, or other legal process;
- to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, violations of our terms and conditions, or situations involving threats to our property or the property or physical safety of any person or third party;
- to establish, protect, or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; or
- to facilitate the financing, securitization, insuring, sale, assignment, bankruptcy, or other disposal of all or part of our business or assets.
From time to time, Amani may also share anonymized and aggregated information about users of the Services, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Services.
Amani uses commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information against loss or unauthorized access, use, modification, or deletion. Among other things, Amani encrypts sensitive information both in transit and at rest. Amani is PCI Level 1 compliant and regularly conducts security audits, vulnerability scans, and penetration tests to ensure compliance with security best practices and standards. However, no security program is foolproof, and thus we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal or other information. Moreover, we cannot guarantee the safety of your information when in the possession of other parties, such as the Third-Party Data Controller.
Reviewing and updating your information
Amani will grant you access to your personal information as directed by the Third-Party Data Controller that integrates the Services into its website, application, or online service. Amani also will retain your personal information as directed by the Third-Party Data Controller and, accordingly, we may retain your personal information for as short as a few minutes or as long as five years.
Thus, if you want to learn more about the personal information that Amani has about you, or you would like to submit a request to update or change that information, please contact the Third-Party Data Controller. You also may reach us by email at email@example.com
Information for users of the Services from outside the United Arab Emirates
The personal information that Amani collects through or in connection with the Services is transferred to and processed in the United Arab Emirates/Turkey for the purposes described above. Amani also may subcontract the processing of your data to, or otherwise share your data with, affiliates or third parties in the United Arab Emirates or countries other than your country of residence. The data protection laws in these countries may be different from, and less stringent than, those in your country of residence.
However, we only transfer your personal data to countries where the EU Commission has decided that they have an adequate level of data protection or we take measures to ensure that all recipients provide an adequate level of data protection. We do this for example by entering into appropriate data transfer agreements based on Standard Contractual Clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC).
The Services are not directed to children under the age of 16, and Amani will never knowingly collect personal or other information from anyone it knows is under the age of 16.
Changes to this PolicyTechnology and the Internet are rapidly changing. Amani therefore is likely to make changes to the Services in the future and as a consequence will need to revise this Policy to reflect those changes. When we revise the Policy, Amani will post the new Policy on the Amani website’s home page www.amani.tech so you should review that page periodically. If we make a material change to the Policy, you will be provided with appropriate notice. If we maintain your email address, we also may email you a copy of the revised Policy at your most recently provided email address. It is therefore important that you update your email address if it changes.
