Important updates to our Privacy Policy, please read...

As a non-profit organization The Company of Fifers & Drummers has always felt it extremely important to protect your privacy. We want you to feel confident that your personal information is secure when using our website, and have had a long-standing practice of collecting only the information necessary to provide you with information and services. Important legislation has now been enacted by the European Union, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR),  that applies not just to sites operated within the EU, but to any site that is visited by an EU citizen.

The Company of Fifers & Drummers was founded on the notion that our musical heritage creates fellowship regardless of borders and ideologies, and we want to ensure that all citizens of the world continue to have access to our information. 

As such, The Company of Fifers & Drummers has taken steps to bring our data protection practices inline with these new regulations.  

How we have prepared for the GDPR

  • We’ve updated our Privacy Policy to include key elements of the EU’s new GDPR that apply to our use of data, and to provide you with detail on your options
  • We've configured anonymization settings in our site analytics 
  • We’ve updated our Newsletter opt-in / out to give you clear visibility into the Newsletter subscription so that you don't receive any unwanted emails from us


You may be pleased to note that all users of our site, not just those in the EU, will have the same data privacy rights. These changes go into effect on May 25, 2018. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policy.

By continuing to use this site you acknowledge that you accept the terms of the updated Privacy Policy. If you have any questions about the changes, email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
