Why we collect information
Nature Foundation, ABN 24 131 531 874 (or the Foundation), collects personal information such as name, addresses, email and phone contact details, payment method details, age range and personal interests. We collect this from donors, non-financial supporters, members and volunteers. We collect personal information in a variety of ways – event registration, donation or membership payment (so that we can provide receipts), general queries, and other activities of Nature Foundation that necessitate personal details being supplied.
Our obligation to you
You have the right to access the personal information that Nature Foundation has collected and can opt out of receiving information from Nature Foundation by contacting [email protected]
Nature Foundation may disclose some personal information to organisations that provide services, as follows:
- name and address to organisations that mail materials to our donors and supporters on our behalf,
- name, address, telephone number, and donation history, to organisations that provide demographic analyses of our donors and supporters,
- name, address, telephone number, donation history, original donation source and narrative notes to organisations that contact our donors or supporters on our behalf by telephone.
Taxation laws require that you must provide your name and address to us if you wish to receive a receipt for your donation in order to obtain a tax deduction. However, you are free to make an anonymous donation e.g. by money order, but you cannot claim a tax deduction. You are entitled to know how Nature Foundation obtained your name and address.
Nature Foundation utilises tools such as Google Analytics to provide information about website utilisation. When you visit this web site, we record anonymous information about your visit and log the following information for statistical purposes:
- your server address;
- your top level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, .uk, etc.);
- the date and time of your visit to the site;
- the pages accessed and documents downloaded; and
- the type of browser used.
This information is not specific to an individual and is used for system-administration purposes, as well as statistical analysis. While anonymous information does not tell us anything about you specifically, it tells us about how you use our site.
Nature Foundation does not seek to identify users or their browsing activities. The exceptions to this are: in the case where users supply the required identifying information in the course of completing one of Nature Foundation's input forms; or in the unlikely event of an investigation where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect Nature Foundation's logs.
This site does not currently collect personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, date of birth or gender, unless you complete one of Nature Foundation's input forms. Nature Foundation will only record your email address if you send us a message. This information will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided it and will not be added to a mailing list. We will not use your email address for any other purpose, and will not disclose it without your consent.
