What personal data do the Positive Leadership Awards collect?

During your use of our website or communication with the Awards, personal data may be collected and processed by the Awards. You may affirmatively provide us with certain personal data (such as your name, email address, phone number, mailing address, your likeness through photos or videos, and email receipt and open data, etc.) when participating in the Awards.

What non-personal data do the Awards collect?

  • Information Collected by “Cookies”: When you access our website and various other interactive properties from which you can participate in the Awards, we may send one or more “cookies” to your computer. A “cookie” is a small line of text that is stored with your browser, which we use to help provide better Awards to you. Your browser has options to accept, reject or provide you with notice when a cookie is sent.
  • Log File Information: Our servers automatically record certain information that your browser sends whenever you access our website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, and one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser.

How do the Awards use personal data and non-personal data?

Any personal information that you voluntarily disclose online becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others.

If you have not opted out from receiving marketing communications from us, we may use your email address, phone number or other personal data to send commercial or marketing messages. We also may use your email address, phone number and other personal data for non-marketing or administrative purposes. You cannot opt out of receiving communications for non-marketing or administrative purposes. Finally, we may run certain algorithms on your personal data  in order to tally votes, rank submissions, ensure fairness in voting process, and provide general security to the Awards.

With regard to non-personal data, we use aggregated information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of our services and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends. In addition, we may use “cookies,” clear gifs and log file information to deliver content (which may include third party advertisements) specific to your interests, and remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it each time you visit one of our interactive properties.

Will the Awards share personal data with others?

We will not share your personal data with other, third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you have the ability to opt-in or opt-out.

We may provide personal data to employees, consultants, affiliates or other businesses or persons for the purpose of processing such information on our behalf. In such circumstances, we require that these parties agree to protect the confidentiality of such information and to comply in all respects with this Privacy Policy.

We may share non-personal data (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the Awards.

In addition, we may release personal data: (i) to the extent we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with any applicable law, enforce our rules, protect ourselves against any liability, defend ourselves against any claims, protect the rights, property and personal safety of any user or protect the public welfare; or (ii) to respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant.

Will the Awards transfer the collected data internationally?

Our servers are located in the United States and Europe, so your information may be transferred to, stored, or processed in the United States and Europe. While the data protection, privacy, and other laws of the United States might not be as comprehensive as those in your country, we take many steps to protect your privacy. By using our website, you understand and consent to the collection, storage, processing, and transfer of your information to our facilities in the United States. We may share some or all of your information with our current or future “affiliates” (which means a parent company, any subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control), in which case we will require our affiliates to honor this privacy policy. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that such information is treated lawfully.

What if I am located in the European Union or Switzerland?

If you are located in the EU or Switzerland, the General Data Protection Regulation grants you certain rights under the law. In particular, the right to access, correct, or delete the personal data the Awards hold about you. The Awards will retain your data for the length of time you engage with us, until you request deletion of such personal data. Upon request via email at privacy(at)positiveleadershipawards.com, the Awards will remove the personal data that it holds about them.
