We only collect Personal Data about you from our Website if you choose to provide it to us. This means you can visit our Website without revealing any Personal Data. Like most websites, our web servers do collect information about your visit, but not about you personally. This information may include the URL, IP address, browser type and language, and the date and time of your visit. This information may be used for a variety of reasons, including to assist us with diagnosing problems with our servers and to administer the Website. This information may also be used to assist with the detection of fraud and we may pass this information on to the police or other legal authorities.

In order to use certain features of the Website and Products & Services you may be asked to register. Any Personal Data which is required and that you choose to provide within the registration process will not be disclosed on our Website. Once registered, you may provide additional information in various areas of the Website. Providing additional information beyond the fields in the registration process is entirely optional and such information may be visible to the public.

Personal Data is captured by ICC Kiev in the course of providing its services and for the purpose that is legally admissible. This occurs, for example, when you take part in an event, take out a subscription to one of our publications or newsletters or contact ICC Kiev for some other reason.

ICC Kiev uses this information to fulfil and process agreements with you, provide other services, operate our internal business processes and inform customers of new and existing products and services provided by ICC Kiev. We store Personal Data only if you have provided it to us of your own free will, for example when you register with us or subscribe to a newsletter.

Your details may also be passed to carefully selected third parties we cooperate with to enable them to provide you with information about offers which may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to receive this information, you can unsubscribe at any time.

Protecting your Personal Data and your general personal rights in collecting, processing and using your personal data is important to us. Accordingly, we are committed to complying with the data protection laws in place.

By providing to us your Personal Data, you expressly and unconditionally release and hold harmless ICC Kiev from and against any and all liability for loss or damage of any kind arising from or in connection with the use and/or misuse of your Personal Data.

In order to enable us to comply with our contractual obligations we will sometimes forward your Personal Data to our selected partner companies, businesses, services and individuals to perform functions on our behalf who will then process this Personal Data. Examples include ticket services and merchandise order fulfillment, e-mail deployment, catalogue entries, Website support, data analysis, marketing assistance, credit card payments, construction services, customer service, promotional or research services, tracking activity on our Website, internal administrative purposes, improving and tailoring the content and general administration of our Website and Products & Services and such. These entities only access the Personal Data to perform their functions, but may not use the information for other purposes. Data will not be forwarded to third parties in any other way unless you have expressly agreed to this being done, or unless statutory provisions place us under obligation to forward them to public authorities.

At times, and consistent with the above, ICC Kiev may share your Personal Data with government entities, authorities or our partners involved in providing services or others who we may need to disclose such information according to law.

We do not disclose or market Personal Data obtained through our Website to others unless disclosure is necessary to protect the safety of customers, employees, or property; you specifically authorise it; it is required in order to deliver a full scope of services, or it is part of ICC Kiev's customary policy or practice or it is required by law.

The order form will ask you to give us Personal Data (like name, address, email address, gender, date of birth and telephone number), financial information (like account or credit card numbers), and demographic information (like zip code or age). We will use your mailing address to fulfill orders of merchandise and tickets as well as to send you announcements and notifications that may be of interest to you.

By giving our Website your credit card and related personal information, you are authorising us to give that information to the merchant and credit card company in order to confirm and fulfill your order. We may use your email address or telephone number to send you special announcements or notifications of events or other products and services that may be of interest to you and to verify and authorise the use of your credit card for Products & Services for which you have registered or requested.
