Privacy Policy

Shopify Data Privacy Notice

The statement below outlines TNC's data privacy policies with regard to TNC’s engagement with Shopify, Inc. (“Shopify”).  TNC has entered into an agreement with independent third party online stores and retail point-of-sale systems software developer, Shopify, to host The Nature Conservancy’s online gift catalog.

TNC takes your privacy very seriously. TNC will provide Shopify access to visitor names, email addresses, shipping and billing addresses, payment details, phone numbers, IP addresses, and device data, which will enable Shopify to process symbolic donations via The Nature Conservancy’s gift catalog.

We are aware of the recent decision of the European Court of Justice (ECJ) regarding Safe Harbour and have been advised by our privacy lawyers that the EU's data protection officials have provided a 'grace period' until January 2016 to permit those who previously were covered under Safe Harbor to make adjustments. For Shopify, these adjustments will include adding model clauses into our standard agreements.

The Nature Conservancy uses the PayPal Payflow Pro payment gateway on our gift catalog. You can learn more about PayPal’s privacy policy here.
