Privacy Policy:

Zonta Fort Myers is committed to collecting and using your personal information responsibly, securely and fairly. This privacy notice tells you what to expect when Zonta Fort Myers collects personal information via our websites or by other means.

Privacy Information
The personal data held by the organizations on individual members of Zonta Fort Myers , members of Zonta clubs, prospective members, donors and third-party supporters are used to provide information about activities of general interest or about a special event or to provide specific information directed to individual members, members of clubs, areas and districts of Zonta Fort Myers .

The Information the Organizations Collect
The organizations only collect information relating to individuals connected to the organizations and their activities. The information is collected from various sources and it may relate to the membership of Zonta Fort Myers. Information may also be collected about individuals connected to the organizations when they interact with either organization, visit the official website, are active on social media platforms, apply for scholarships and other education programs, register for conventions or other activities as guests, or contact us to inquire about membership, events or how to donate.

Some of this information will be collected directly in connection with membership applications. The organizations only store personal information that members, donors or others have knowingly provided or that has been generated through participation in Zonta activities.

General user of websites. The organizations do not collect personal information from users browsing the official websites. Users from the public browsing the websites do so anonymously. Aggregate data such as the number of visits per page will be recorded and stored. Aggregate data do not provide any personally-identifying information.

Member and donor. For access to members only resources and any other personal feature on the website, members and other users are asked to register and provide some limited information. This data is submitted voluntarily. The form requests the user to provide information including name, address, email address, interests and other information similar to what is submitted to the organizations through membership applications, convention or conference registrations, Zonta store orders, subscriptions and contribution forms.

Nonmember. Individuals who from time to time receive information from the organizations include awardees of the Zonta education programs, donors, United Nations agencies or other non-member supporters of the organizations. The information collected pertaining to these individuals includes contact details such as name and address, email address, telephone number, social media contact details, any participation in events sponsored at any level of Zonta Fort Myers and any information contained in the education program applications.

The organizations may disclose personal information collected or provided as described in this policy to contractors, service providers and other third parties which support the business of either organization and which are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and to use it only for the purposes for which the information is disclosed to them.

Lawful Bases for Processing
The lawful bases for the organizations to process data are one or more of the following:

Consent. The individual has given clear consent for the organizations to process personal data for specific purposes.

Contract. The processing is necessary for a contract or agreement between the organizations and the individual, or because specific steps are required before entering into a contract.

Legal obligation. The processing is necessary for the organizations to comply with the law obligations.

Legitimate interests. The processing is necessary for the organizations’ legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party unless there is a reason to protect the individual’s personal data that overrides those legitimate interests.

Withdrawal of consent
Member. For a member to withdraw the consent for the organizations to store and use personal information is possible, but would present almost insurmountable barriers for membership, inasmuch as the membership department of headquarters, districts, areas and clubs of the organization would be unable to communicate with the individual member or members of clubs.

Withdrawal of consent would deny the nonconsenting individual access to all information about the activities of the organizations. In order to avoid violating the withdrawal of consent, the organizations would be obliged to inform districts, areas and clubs that the member data is no longer available to store, use or share.

Individual members or members of clubs may opt out of being visible to other members in the directory on the website, by choosing that option on the member profile page on the international website.

A member can opt out of receiving direct communication such as email and mail by choosing that option on the member profile page on the website.

A member can change her or his personal information by using the member update feature in the My Zonta section of the website or by sending an email to

Nonmember. A nonmember must consent in order to receive communications from the organizations and can withdraw such consent and opt out of receiving any further communications by sending an email to

The organizations use cookies on the websites. A browser can be set to refuse or accept cookies.

Zonta Fort Myers reserves the right at any time and without notice to change this Privacy Policy in accordance with regulation in place. Any such change will be effective immediately upon posting on the website.
