I’m sad

Don't sell me out to other charities!

I love WWF but I do not like the company selling my information to other charities. In the past few months, I have tolerated and even given to other solicitations that were "nature" related. But I am fed up with it. Please stop!

    Hi Victoria

    Sorry to hear about this. Could you tell me a little bit more about what's been happening and which country of the world you live in? We can then make sure that your very valid concerns are addressed with the right people.

    Please accept our apologies for the problems this has caused you.

    Hello Ste!

    First, I accept your apologies. Secondly, sorry for the late response; I'm a student and it's finals week!

    I am living in the United States of America, in California. I am a donor for WWF, although a small contributor, I am loyal to WWF and their commitment. Not only am I a monthly donor but I also respond to the mailing occasionally. About a couple of months ago, I have been receiving solicitations from other non-profits such: "East Bay SPCA", "HIV" related fund, "Feeding America", an "Arbor Day Foundation", the "National Humane Society", and I am most positive it all started with "Guiding Eyes for the Blind" mail.

    I believe I gave to a few of those and I understand that by doing so, they could have also sold my information. However, that does not explain how I have been getting them in the first place.

    Hope this gets solved,

    Victoria

    p.s. still love WWF!!

    Hey Victoria

    Thanks for getting back to us, especially given you are so busy.

    So yes, I see what you mean: that's not good at all.

    I checked the WWF US privacy policy and it indicates that they would not pass on your information. However they may promote 3rd party services... but any communications should and would still come from WWF US. Not from any of those charities that you mention above.

    I will still make my colleagues in the US office aware of what's happened here just in case. They are very vigilant and value people such as yourself so highly that they will really appreciate this input.

    If I do find anything out that can help shed light on this, I'll definitely get back to you.

    Thanks so much for sticking with us. If you ever think we can return the favour, send an email to this address:

    questions@wwf.panda.org

    and mark it "FAO: Ste"

    Cheers Victoria - good luck with the finals!

    Ste
