This website is operated by the INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF MUSICIANS (FIM). It is FIM’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while managing our websites.

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.
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.
