If we refuse to take action on your request, you may appeal this refusal within a reasonable period after you have received notice of the refusal. You may file an appeal by contacting us at [email protected].

We will verify and respond to your request consistent with applicable law, taking into account the type and sensitivity of the Personal Information subject to the request. We may need to request additional Personal Information, such as your contact details or information about your previous transactions with us, in order to verify your identity and protect against fraudulent requests. If you maintain a password-protected account with us, we may verify your identity through our existing authentication practices for your account and require you to re-authenticate yourself before disclosing or deleting your Personal Information. If you make a request to delete, we may ask you to confirm your request before we delete your Personal Information.

For fundraising purposes, WWF shares Personal Information on a limited basis with other nonprofit organizations via list exchanges, and in return receives personal information from those other organizations. Sharing personal information in this manner is characterized as the “sale” of personal information under the Colorado Privacy Act and the Oregon Consumer Privacy Act, as applicable. Colorado and Oregon Consumers have the right to opt out of the selling of their Personal Information, and may submit requests to opt out as noted above.

WWF uses Personal Information for the purposes of targeted advertising. Colorado and Oregon Consumers have the right to opt out of targeted advertising, and may submit requests or adjust their cookie settings to opt out as noted above.

We also process opt-out preference signals, such as the Global Privacy Control. These signals set your opt-out preferences only for the particular browser or device you are using and any consumer profile that we associate with that browser or device. For information about how to use the Global Privacy Control, please visit https://globalprivacycontrol.org/.

Authorized Agents

If an agent would like to make a request on your behalf as permitted under applicable law, the agent may use the submission methods noted in the section above entitled “Rights and Requests.” We will process the agent’s request consistent with applicable law. As part of our verification process, we may request that the agent provide, as applicable, proof concerning their status as an authorized agent. In addition, we may require that you verify your identity as described in the section above entitled “Rights and Requests” or confirm that you provided the agent permission to submit the request.

De-Identified Information

Where we collect information from you that cannot reasonably be used to infer information about, or otherwise be linked to, you, or a device linked to you (“de-identified information”), we will continue to maintain and use the de-identified information only in a de-identified fashion and will not attempt to re-identify the information.
