Privacy Statement and Legal Disclaimers

The Grand Master Fiddle Championship Inc. is concerned about protecting personal information it gathers and considers data protection an important issue. We want you to feel secure when visiting our site and are committed to maintaining your privacy when doing so. When you visit www.grandmasterfiddler.com we want you to know that we respect your privacy.

 

What We Collect

The Grand Master Fiddle Championship Inc. limits the collection and use of personal data which is needed for valid business purposes or to comply with local law, and any such data will be obtained only by lawful and fair means. As a matter of fact, the only private information we have about you is the information you choose to give us by filling out a form or providing feedback. We do not give that information to third parties without notifying you on the form and without your consent. Throughout our site, we may provide the opportunity to register for an event, order information, products and/or services, or participate in an online survey. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used. It is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.

 

We may use "cookies" on some pages of our site, simply to help us serve you better each time you return. A cookie is a small element of data that a Web site can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system. The data collected from cookies helps us determine how many people visit this site and what pages they view. We use this information to better serve all visitors as we improve our site content and design. You can set your Web browser to warn you before you accept a cookie.

 

We do collect information on the domains from which people visit us. We use that data to track trends in our site traffic and as the basis for making improvements. We do not share this information with any third parties.

 

We may also collect information indirectly through our Internet access logs. When you access this website, your Internet address is automatically collected and is placed in our Internet access logs. This is only used to determine what is most effective about our site, to help us identify ways to improve it, and eventually, to determine how we can tailor it more effectively.

 

Sharing of Information with Outside Parties

We will NEVER sell individual information. There might be times when we need to share information - for example, in the case of an event where we need to provide our caterer with meal preference information. Before you submit any information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for specific information and it is completely up to you whether or not you want to provide it.

 

We generally do not seek to collect sensitive personal data through this site. If we do seek to collect such data, we will ask you to consent to our proposed uses of the data. We may also collect some sensitive personal data incidentally. By providing us with unsolicited sensitive personal data, you consent to our using the data subject to applicable law as described in this Privacy Statement. The references to "sensitive personal data" are to the various categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances
the need to obtain explicit consent. These categories comprise personal identity numbers, personal data about personality and private life, racial or ethnic origin, nationality, political opinions, membership of political parties or movements, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, membership of a trade union or profession or trade association, physical or mental health, genetic code, addictions, sexual life, property matters or criminal record (including information about suspected criminal activities).

 

The Grand Master Fiddle Championship Inc. will not release personal data to unaffiliated third parties, unless (1) the consumer requests it; (2) the data is provided to help complete a consumer-initiated transaction; (3) the disclosure is required by law; (4) the consumer has been informed about the possibility of such disclosure and has decided not to opt out.
