​​​​​​​Donor Privacy Commitment ​

This policy applies to all Personal Information received by Conservation International from donors, both online (through all CI controlled websites) and offline, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications. 

We will not sell or trade our donors' Personal Information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations. 

We will only collect and process Personal Information about you where we have a lawful basis, and we only share Personal Information with trusted third parties to provide an effective user experience and comply with laws that apply to us (see Privacy Policy, Section 2 Use of Information). 

We may combine and use data analysis to interpret your information and predict how likely you are to be interested in or responsive to a particular campaign or fundraising communication. If we conclude that you have the potential or interest in supporting CI’s efforts at a higher level, we may collect additional publicly available information about you and combine and analyze that information into a donor profile, which allows us to engage with you in a customized manner that is responsive to your supporter interest. We commonly look at and combine information from public information resources and other data sources that you chose to make available publicly on your social media channels to give insight into your philanthropic interests and ability to support us.  In addition, we may use trusted third-party companies that analyze and measure available information to assess affluence. This helps us understand more about your interests and level of potential engagement or donation. 

To the extent any donations are processed through a third-party service provider, our donors’ information will only be used for purposes necessary to process the donation. Any credit card information supplied online by donors is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. All credit card transactions are processed through a VeriSign secured and PCI DSS compliant gateway provider and are not stored or processed on our servers.
