Privacy policy

Coral Guardian believes that respecting your privacy on the web is a fundamental right, which is why we take great care to ensure that your online security is as rigorous as possible.
This policy does not apply to pages hosted by other organisations to which we may link and whose privacy policies may be different.

For the purposes of this policy, the term “member” refers to a person who has made a financial contribution to the association, via our website or by any other means. The terms “newsletter subscriber” and “cyberactivist” refer to people who have subscribed to one or more of our electronic message (email) distribution lists.

We do not collect any personally identifiable information on our website other than that which is voluntarily provided to us by e-mail, telephone or post, in particular when registering as a member or cyberactivist. Even when you agree to give us information, it remains confidential. We ask the service providers who work for us to respect this privacy policy.

We do not sell or rent our email records or any other personally identifiable information collected on our websites. Coral Guardian does not share or communicate its email files to other organisations in any way.

If you become a cyberactivist or participate in an online action, such as signing a petition, sending an e-mail, letter or fax, you may be offered the opportunity to participate in future online actions, to be informed of the outcome of the action, to receive a newsletter or other information, or to support Coral Guardian financially. You are always free to accept or refuse all or part of these proposals.

If you become a member of Coral Guardian, you may be offered the opportunity to participate in online actions, or to receive a newsletter or other additional information. In this case, you can ask not to receive any information by simply writing to or calling Coral Guardian.

When you take part in an online action, you will not always be anonymous to our target(s). Companies and governments that receive messages by e-mail or fax as part of our cyber actions may sometimes reply to your personal e-mail address or your physical address, if you have given them.

We temporarily keep the messages and contact details of people who have contacted us to request further information or advice, in case we need to contact them at a later date to provide further information. However, we do not pass this information on to anyone else, and we will not use this information for any other purpose.

Our site is hosted on various servers which are located at hosting companies whose privacy policy is identical to ours. The information contained in our site logs does not allow individuals to be identified, and we make no attempt to associate this information with the people who visit the site. The server collects information on the dates and times of access to our website as well as the Internet address of the server from which you accessed our site. This enables us to track a user’s movements within our site anonymously. We use this information to improve the content and ergonomics of our site and to compile visitor statistics.

A cookie is a small piece of information that our site can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive. Our website uses cookies to personalise certain options. For example, when a donation is made online, several steps are required (entering contact details, payment, etc.). In this case, the cookie is used to store the data from one stage to the next. Our site also uses cookies to improve the relevance of the information we are likely to distribute on our site and on sites that relay our messages. If you do not want our site to send cookies to your computer, you can configure your browser so that it does not accept them. To do this, consult your browser help or go to the “Cookies” section of the CNIL website.

Our “Join us”, “Make a donation”, “Adopt a coral”, etc. pages use the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol, a security protocol that allows your Internet communications to remain private. This protocol offers client/server applications that allow you to communicate without being eavesdropped on, without your messages being modified and to prevent false messages being sent. It encrypts all personal information, including your credit card number, name and address, so that it cannot be read as it travels over the Internet. When you are on a secure page, the padlock icon at the bottom of browsers such as Mozilla or Internet Explorer is locked (closed), whereas it is unlocked (open) when you are surfing a standard page.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information over the Internet, we also do our utmost to protect this information once it is stored. Access to our data and files is only possible at our offices or at the premises of service providers contracted by Coral Guardian. Only those employees who need the information for a specific task (for example, our data collectors) have access to personally identifiable information. Our employees and volunteers must use password-protected computers. In addition, all Coral Guardian employees and volunteers who handle member information are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Our employees and volunteers are made aware of the importance we place on privacy and what they can do to ensure the protection of our members’ information, and are regularly reminded of this.

If you have any questions about the information we hold on our members, please contact

Our security measures and this policy are regularly reviewed.
