What information do we collect?
World Animal Protection collects and maintains certain personal information about you that you voluntarily provide when you send us an email or complete any of our online or offline donation slips or other forms. This includes the following: subscribing to one of our online newsletters, sending an email request for information, making an online donation, sending a donation by mail, requesting to become a World Animal Protection member, and forwarding a webpage, e-postcard, e-petition, or e-newsletter. The information may include your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and any other information collected in our forms. It may also include the email addresses of those to whom you forwarded World Animal Protection content. It also covers credit card information you have provided to contribute to World Animal Protection, become a member, purchase materials or information from us, or subscribe to various World Animal Protection publications.
Our website also collects certain other information that cannot identify you personally when you visit the site. This information includes your IP address and your domain name. Our site logs these IP addresses and domain names, and aggregates them for system administration and to monitor the use of our website. We use the aggregated information to measure the number of visits to our site, the average time spent on our site, the number of pages viewed, and various other site statistics. This monitoring helps us to provide a more useful and engaging online experience to our website visitors, and helps us to improve the quality of our content.
We may use the information you voluntarily have provided to contact you regarding animal-related issues we feel you may be interested in, to keep you updated regarding World Animal Protection’s programs, and to extend an invitation to you to support our programs. Every recipient of our electronic communications can quickly and easily "opt out" of future such communications by following the instructions in any email communication we send.
