Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to International Children’s Friendship Festival (ICFF). So we have developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer, and store your information. This Policy does not apply to companies that ICFF does not own or control, or to individuals that are not under ICFF supervisory control. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and let us know if you have any questions.

You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with ICFF. ICFF committee members may share this personal information with each other and use it in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Here are some examples of the types of personal information ICFF may collect and how we may use it.

    • The personal information we collect allows us to communicate with you to work out the details of your participation in ICFF.
    •  From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about ICFF changes to our schedule or participation criteria or inviting you to future ICFF events.
    • As outlined in the Performer Tech Sheet Form, ICFF may use photographs and videos of participants with or without the group’s name and for any lawful purpose, including publicity, illustration, advertising, gallery exhibit, web content and festival promotion.

Your Personal Information will not be collected for use that is in violation of the law, or unrelated to what is discussed in this Policy, unless you are also provided an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
