Website Visitors

Like most website operators, FIM collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. FIM’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to understand better how FIM’s visitors use its websites. From time to time, FIM may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its websites.

FIM also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. FIM does not disclose IP addresses to third parties.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to FIM’s websites choose to interact with FIM in ways that require FIM to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that FIM gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at fim-musicians.org to provide a username and email address. Visitors may also be requested to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process a transaction like registration for an event or the booking of a hotel room.

In each case, FIM collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with FIM. FIM does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information.

Aggregated Statistics

FIM may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. FIM will not display this information publicly or provide it to third parties.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

FIM discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on FIM’s behalf or to provide services available at FIM’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using FIM’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

FIM will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, FIM discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or another governmental request, or when FIM believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FIM, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of an FIM website and have supplied your email address, FIM may occasionally send you an email to update you on FIM’s activities or solicit your feedback. FIM takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect itself against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. FIM makes limited use of cookies to analyse the visitors’ usage of FIM website and their website access preferences, including their preferred language.

FIM visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using FIM’s websites, with the drawback that specific features of FIM’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, FIM may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in FIM’s sole discretion. FIM encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you are subscribed to one of our Newsletters, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
