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 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. Sta­tis­tics are pro­duced with a self-host­ed track­ing sys­tem (Mato­mo) and stored local­ly. FIM will not dis­play this infor­ma­tion pub­licly or pro­vide it to third par­ties. Check the box below if you do not want your vis­its to be used in our statistics.


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.


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.
