What Information Does IWF Collect?

IWF collects information in two ways: (1) directly from you and (2) automatically as a result of your participation in an IWF Event or use of the Site.

  • Make a purchase through the Site; or
  • Subscribe to newsletters, email lists, or other content that we provide.

We may collect information such as your first and last name, home or other physical address, email address, telephone number, credit card or other payment information and any other information that you provide to us. You may choose not to provide certain information to us, but doing so may restrict your ability to use the Site or participate in an Event.

Information from Other Sources. We may obtain information about you from other third parties. For example, we may obtain information about you from other fairs or exhibitors.

We may also make aggregated information available to third parties for their own purposes.

Information Security

We take measures designed to secure and protect information transmitted via or stored on the Site. Despite these measures, we cannot guarantee the security of networks, servers and databases we operate or that are operated on our behalf or that the information you transmit to IWF over the Internet will not be intercepted, deleted or altered.

If you use the Site, you will continue to receive generic advertisements.
