Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us, so The Kurdish Project has a few fundamental principles. If you find content on The Kurdish Project website you believe violates our Privacy Policy, please contact us immediately.

The Kurdish Project

“The Kurdish Project” operates a website at It is The Kurdish Project’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, The Kurdish Project may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Kurdish Project’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Kurdish Project’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Kurdish Project may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Kurdish Project also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on articles published. The Kurdish Project only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Kurdish Project’s websites choose to interact with The Kurdish Project in ways that require The Kurdish Project to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Kurdish Project gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to contribute to The Kurdish Project to share their names, email addresses and in some cases, personal stories and photos.

In each case, The Kurdish Project collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Kurdish Project. The Kurdish Project does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.


Identity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to The Kurdish Project. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, an account ID, a login password, or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication. For more information about phishing, visit the Federal Trade Commission’s website.

Aggregated Statistics

The Kurdish Project may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, The Kurdish Project may monitor the most popular pages and articles on the The Kurdish site or use spam screened by the Akismet service to help identify spammers. The Kurdish Project may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Kurdish Project does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Business Transfers

If The Kurdish Project, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The Kurdish Project goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of The Kurdish Project may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Any Ads appearing on our website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by The Kurdish Project and does not cover the use of cookies by any such advertisers.


Comments and other content submitted via the Akismet anti-spam service are saved on our servers unless they were marked as spam positive, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, The Kurdish Project may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in The Kurdish Project’s sole discretion. The Kurdish Project encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Protection of Information

The Kurdish Project discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that

(i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Kurdish Project’s behalf or to provide services available at The Kurdish Project’s websites, and

(ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Kurdish Project’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Kurdish Project will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Kurdish Project discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Kurdish Project believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Kurdish Project, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of an The Kurdish Project website and have supplied your email address, The Kurdish Project may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Kurdish Project and our services. We primarily use our website to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Kurdish Project takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Email Communication

Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every email. We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Kurdish Project uses cookies to help The Kurdish Project identify and track visitors, their usage of The Kurdish Project website, and their website access preferences.
