The Gorilla Project is committed to protecting the privacy of our volunteers, supporters, and others with whom we interact. The Gorilla Project values the trust of our volunteers and supporters and recognizes that maintaining this trust requires that we be accountable and transparent in how we treat the information shared with us.
In our quest to increase environmental awareness and action, make films about conservation and build a strong constituency, we frequently gather and use personal information. The personal data of our volunteers and supporters is always held in confidence, and any use or disclosure of this information is subject to consent.
Personal information is any information that can be used to distinguish, identify or contact a specific individual. This information can include an individual's name, contact information, social status, and family relationships. Exceptions include business-related information and publicly available information such as a business address, name, title, and fax. Personal information also includes anonymous or non-personal information (i.e., information that cannot be associated with or tracked back to a specific individual).
What Personal Information Do We Collect?
We collect and maintain different types of personal information about individuals with whom we interact, which is relevant to administer and manage our interactions with you.
Contact and identification information, such as your name, address, telephone number, mobile number, e-mail address, and social media contact information.
Why Do We Collect Personal Information?
The Gorilla Project collects personal information to further its filmmaking, public education, and advocacy commitments and establish, maintain, and manage our relationship with you.
How Do We Use Personal Information?
It is vital that we only collect your personal information where we have your explicit or implied consent to do so. Typically, we seek your consent at the time that we collect the personal information.
Regularly, our volunteers are given opportunities to choose how often and in what way they wish to hear from us. At any time, our supporters can opt out of receiving communication material. Also, our supporters can opt out of having their information used or shared for purposes beyond those for which it was collected.
Retention of Personal Information
We retain personal information about you for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data was collected and comply with legal record retention requirements.
Personal information gathered by The Gorilla Project is kept in strict confidence. Safeguards are in place to ensure that the data is not disclosed or shared more widely, which is necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was gathered. Access is only given to employees who must use personal information to perform their job functions. Measures are in place to ensure the integrity and accuracy of the information and prevent it's being lost, stolen, or prematurely destroyed.
