What information do we collect?

  1. Personal information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, date of birth (where appropriate), bank details etc. We collect this information only in connection with specific activities, such as membership, campaigns, feedback, surveys, email newsletter subscriptions, volunteering etc. You don't have to disclose any of this information if you do not wish to.
  2. Non-personal information WWF collects data such as IP address (the location of the computer on the internet), pages accessed and files downloaded. This helps us to determine how many individuals use our site, how many people visit on a regular basis, which pages are most popular, and which pages are least popular. This information doesn't tell us anything about who you are or where you live; it simply allows us to monitor and improve our service.
