Albanian Institute is committed to protecting your privacy when you visit our Albanian Institute website. By using the Albanian Institute website, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions of Albanian Institute’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. The Albanian Institute Privacy Policy is outlined below. A link to this policy is provided in the footer information on every page of the Albanian Institute website.


Other websites

Our site contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website for which Albanian Institute has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.

Social media

We maintain a presence on several social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter, and we also incorporate some third-party social networking features onto our website. Through these platforms and features, we receive some personal information and some usage information about you, and this Privacy Policy applies to that information as well. In addition, these third-party social networking platforms have their own privacy policies, which explain how the third parties that provide them will use and protect your information. The information we receive from third parties may depend on the privacy settings you have on the third-party platform.

Online memberships and donations

When you make a donation to Albanian Institute online or, purchase an Albanian Institute membership or events tickets, we will ask you to provide us with the information we need to process your membership and/or to acknowledge your contribution. This information includes your name, billing and mailing addresses, telephone number, email address, and credit card information. Your credit card information will be sent to our third-party payment card processors and service providers to perform fraud detection and payment processing services. If your purchase is rejected by our website because it was detected as a possible fraudulent use of a payment card, and you are in fact the authorized user of the card, you can contact us at [email protected] for the issue to be evaluated and resolved.

We will retain your personally identifiable information for our records, in order to facilitate better community services. We do not store credit card numbers. To process payments for members who have selected automatic renewal, Albanian Institute will retain payment information using tokenization technology for enhanced security.
