Individuals making Tour Reservations

What information is collected?

Carolina Tiger Rescue collects the reservor’s name, requested tour date and time, size of party (number of adults and children), credit card information, and contact information.

How is this information used?

Credit card information is required to enforce a cancellation policy. No holds are placed on the credit card. In the event the Reservor does not abide by the stated cancellation policy, the credit card information may be used to charge a fee equal to or less than the funds lost by Carolina Tiger Rescue. This information is accessible to employed staff, and is kept locked. Credit card information is regularly and securely discarded once the tour reservation date has past.

Contact information is collected to notify the Reservor in the event the tour must be moved or cancelled. Staff may also use the contact information to verify details about the reservation or to inquire about the Reservor’s preferences regarding their tour. This information is available to staff and to volunteers assisting with tours.

Anyone who wishes to take photos, video, or audio recordings on the property is required to sign a release that grants Carolina Tiger Rescue license to use any media (photos, film, audio) recorded on the premises or of its animals.

How is this information used?

If visitors check "I do not wish to receive newsletters, information on special events, and other updates" then their presence and locale (county, state, and country) is tallied by Carolina Tiger volunteers for maintaining visitor statistics and then filed. Contact information is not recorded.

If visitors do not check this box, their contact information, the date of the release and the visit, and the purpose of their visit is recorded into a digital database. This information is entered and may be referenced by Carolina Tiger volunteers and/or staff.

Address information is used for mail campaigns and newsletters.
