Thank you for visiting our website, and for your interest in the International Federation of Wildlife Photography (IFWP). IFWP respects your privacy. As the protection of your personal data is an important concern to us, we will explain below what information we collect during your visit to our website, how that is processed and whether or how that information may be used.

Personal data

Personal information is information about personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as your first and last name, your postal or residential address, telephone numbers and date of birth. Information that cannot be directly related to your real identity - such as your favourite websites or the number of users of a page - are not considered as personal data.

Collection and processing of personal data

As the operator and creator of the website, we do not store personal data automatically. If you go to our website, the provider ( where the web server is hosted ) may temporarily store data for the purpose of system security such as the connection of the computer, the web pages you visit, the date and duration of the visit, data about the used browser software and operating system and the web page from which you visit us.

In addition to that, personal information such as your name, address, phone number or e-mail will only be stored if you have provided this information voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, a survey, a contest, to carry out an order, a contract or an information request.

Use and disclosure of personal data

Personal data you provide may be used solely for the purpose of technical website administration and to fullfil your wishes and requirements, thus primarily to processing any order with you or to respond to your request. We don't share, sell or transfer your personal data to third parties, unless you have explicitly consented.

Use of Web Analysis Software

To improve the structure and the data we offer on, we use a web analysis software. Our evaluations are based on summary or averaged information amalgamated for the large numbers of people visiting The data provided is not matched with any individual's data from other sources, and we don't share the data provided with third parties (except, perhaps, summary information such as total number of hits).

Data collected by our analysis software includes IP, time and duration of the visit, which pages are visited, the used browser and add-ons/plugins, search-engines and referrer. While this software uses a cookie to distinguish between individual visitors, the collected data doesn't allow us to identify individuals.


 We take all the necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss and misuse. Your data is stored in a secure operating environment that is not accessible to the public. If you communicate with us via e-mail, please note that the confidentiality of the information can never be fully guaranteed. The contents of e-mails can always be intercepted by third parties. In case of doubt we therefore recommend you to send confidential information only by mail.

Right of access to personal data

Upon written request you will be informed by us of what information we stored about you (such as name or address) and you can request modifications or deletion at any time.


Content contained on the site, including the Terms of use, Privacy Policy and Disclaimer, may be changed at the sole discretion of IFWP and without notice. You are bound by any such updates or changes, and so should periodically review these Legal Disclaimers and Privacy Policy.
