IP addresses do not provide us with any identifiable personal information. This means your session will be tracked, but you will remain anonymous to us.

In order to better understand the way our websites are used by visitors, CI employs the use of cookies, a small file that stores information on your hard disk drive. CI uses information derived from cookies strictly for tracking usage and developing site improvements.

Submitting Personal Information
You can submit information to www.conservation.org in several places on the website. A 'Contact Us' form allows customers to request information.

Contact information from the feedback form is used to send responses or information requested by our customers. This information is never shared; it is used only for our replies.

CI's online donation form is hosted by an outside vendor. The vendor provides a link to its privacy policy on the form. The form requires financial information (such as credit card numbers), as well as e-mail addresses and postal mailing addresses. This information is kept confidential. Contact information from the form is used to reply to our visitors as needed, and is not shared with outside organizations.

CI strongly observes anti-SPAM practices in its e-mail outreach programs. Visitors can currently sign up for e-mail updates on Investigate Biodiversity and www.cepf.net. Each e-mail comes with an unsubscribe option and lists are never shared among or outside the organization.

The information you submit when using CI's eCards is not utilized for any other purposes. Your personal information will never be shared among or outside the organization.

None of the websites covered by this policy knowingly collect identifiable personal information from children under age 13. If we discover that a person under the age of 13 has provided us with any personally identifiable information, we will delete that information from our systems. We are unable to reply to information requests from children under the age of 13, if so identified. A parent or guardian must initiate any requests for information from children under the age of 13 on their behalf. We encourage parents to supervise children when they browse the Internet.
