Privacy and Data Protection Policy

This site is the sole and exclusive property of the ASSOCIAÇÃO ONÇAFARI (“ONÇAFARI”), having as its principal place of business Rua Ferreira de Araújo, nº 221/225, cj.14, Pinheiros, CEP 05428-000, São Paulo, SP, Brazil, and being duly registered under National Corporate Taxpayer ID (“CNPJ”) nº 13.532.541/0001-02.

This Privacy and Data Protection Policy (“Policy”) provides information concerning our policies and practices related to the collection, use, and disclosure of the information you provide to ONÇAFARI by means of this website (“Site”).

We recommend that you read the Policy in its entirety before using or providing information to the Site.

Concept

ONÇAFARI has enormous respect for the privacy and data security of its users and promises to provide the maximum amount of confidentiality regarding the information obtained through the Site.

Consent

We do not collect any personal information on our Site except that which you provide, freely and on your own accord, either by e-mail, participation in one of our online initiatives, or by filling out one of our registration forms.

Promise

We promise to maintain in absolute confidentiality any and all data and information we obtain from our users by means of the Site, with the exceptions provided for in this Policy.

Data Collection Rights

The Site directly collects data and information from its visitors not only through specific inquiries, but also by allowing you to directly communicate with us by e-mail and/or feedback questionnaires.

Some of the information that you voluntarily provide us may include personal data, that is, information that would allow you to be personally identified, such as: your full name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, etc.

Some areas of the Site may request that you provide information for you to use specific resources (such as registration forms, newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, donation forms, etc.) or to participate in specific activities. At each moment we will inform you whether the information requested is mandatory or optional.

In the event that you decide not to register or fill-out any type of form, you may navigate the site freely, however you may not be able to participate in some activities.

In the case of e-mail lists, you may cancel your registration at any time by contacting our team at info@oncafari.org.

Indirect Data Collection

By navigating the Site, certain information may be indirectly collected, that is, without being directly requested, due to the use of several technologies and means such as: Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, Internet tags, and navigation data collection.

This site may use IP addresses. An IP address is a specific number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider for you to access the Internet and generally does not identify personal data because, in most cases, the IP address is dynamic (changed with each access to the Internet) rather than fixed (a single address used solely for one user).

“Conversion Pixels” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than “cookies” and send information to a website owner about a visitor’s IP address and type of browser. This Site uses “Conversion Pixels”. Conversion Pixels advertisements have been placed on-line to attract users to the Site, as well as on different pages of the Site. These “Conversion Pixels” indicate how many times a page has been opened and what information was consulted. We do not collect nor seek personal data using these tags.

“Navigation Data” (“log files”, “server logs”, and “clickstream” data) are used for system management, to improve site content, for market research, and to communicate information to visitors. This Site uses “log files” and “server logs”.

Data Use

The data and information you provide will be kept confidential and only used to segment the target audience for ONÇAFARI’s online campaigns.

If you provide the Site with personal information, we may combine that data with other data obtained indirectly, however, we will take all necessary measures to prevent that information from being disclosed, either by itself or in combination with other data.

Personal and individual data and information will not be sold or passed on to third parties under any circumstances, except where required by law or court order.

ONÇAFARI reserves the right to produce statistical analyses that aggregate the characteristics or behavior of its users in order to measure interest in the products and services it offers on the Site. At ONÇAFARI’s sole discretion, those analyses may be made available to its business partners, used in promotional and advertising materials, published on the Site in the form of news, or cited in press releases or journalistic publications, although without reference to specific individuals.

In addition to all of the above, we reserve the right to make any other use of the data obtained through the Site which does not identify specific individuals.

We will not send you materials of any kind, either by e-mail or through the post, unless you opt to receive it and indicate that option through the filling-out of one of our forms.

Option to Unregister

The option to unregister the destination e-mail is available at the foot of each e-mail sent by ONÇAFARI.

Links to Other Sites

This Site may include links or references to other websites. Please be aware that we do not control those other websites and, thus, this Policy does not apply with respect to them. We recommend that you read the privacy policy of each website you visit.

Data Security

We will take all measures necessary to protect your personal information in the transmission of the data from your computer to the Site, as well as in relation to any unauthorized access to the data or its loss, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should be aware, however, that no transmission over the Internet is 100% secure or error-free, and it is advisable that you maintain any anti-virus software always up to date. In addition, it is your responsibility to take measures to safeguard the use of any passwords, user IDs, or other resources that allow special access to the Site.

Our payment processing system is designed to offer options to maintain the privacy of your credit card information and your name, home address, e-mail address, and any other information that you provide us with. ONÇAFARI promises to preserve the security of your data regarding the information collected by our Site. Furthermore, we do not store information regarding your credit card after your transaction is processes. In the event of any problems related to finalizing a transaction, we may contact you using the data you provided us with.

Use of Cookies

Our Site uses “cookies” solely and exclusively for purpose of obtaining visitor statistics, including information on a visitor’s Internet service providers (“ISP”), operating system, browser (type, version, options enabled, and plug-ins installed), video settings (size/resolution and color depth), time and date of the visit, and the specific pages visited.

Anti-Spam

Some ISPs offer their users anti-spam tools to avoid receiving de undesired e-mails. These tools work to block the receipt of e-mails from addresses not authorized by users. If you have an anti-spam tool activated on your computer, you may not be able to receive promotional and informational e-mails from ONÇAFARI or even e-mails sent during the process of making purchases on the Site, such as notifications of processed requests and e-mails regarding delivery dates, among others.

To avoid this problem, be sure to add ONÇAFARI to your list of contacts. Only then will you be able to receive our e-mails normally. If you require additional information, contact your ISP.

Donations

The information provided on our donation forms is protected by a security certification offered by the financial institution that processes the relevant payments. Credit card information and PIN numbers are encrypted and ONÇAFARI and its employees are not able to see that information.

Upon clicking on the “Donate” button, you will be directed to the payment processing page of our chosen payment gateway (PayPal). You may also cancel your donations at any time directly on the payment gateway’s site.
