Data Processing Purposes
Based on your consent, which you may withdraw at any time, Panthera processes your data to provide you with the information and updates you have requested from us via email, includingprogram updates, news, events, publications, and opportunities to be involved with our campaigns or other efforts.
Based on Panthera’s legitimate interest of understanding and meeting the needs, concerns, and interests of our donors in order to operate optimally as a nonprofit serving the greater good through the conservation of the world’s wild cats, Panthera processes data consisting of: sending fundraising materials and event invitations to individuals via mail based on our previous relationship; conducting research and analysis and reviewing publicly available information about our supporters to aid in fundraising efforts; and utilizing the above- described cookies, email tracking, and website tracking, to improve user experience on our website.
You may choose to make an online donation via Panthera’s website by using a payment card. Typically, payment card information is provided directly by users, via the Panthera website, into the PCI/DSS-compliant payment processing service iATS with which Panthera has contracted, and Panthera does not, itself, process or store the card information. When Panthera receives payment card information from donors by methods other than our website, it is entered by Panthera’s employees into the PCI/DSS-compliant payment processing service as instructed by the donor, and the information is then deleted or destroyed. We strongly discourage donors from submitting this information via email.
