Your privacy is very important to us. At the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP) we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
- We don’t share your personal information except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our site. Any credit card transactions are handled through a third-party service and are encrypted. AMCP does not store any credit card information on our servers or systems.
AMCP operates several websites including marcomawards.com, hermesawards.com, dotcommawards.com, avaawards.com, and communitasawards.com. It is AMCP’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, AMCP collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. AMCP’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AMCP’s visitors use its website.
AMCP also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our sites. AMCP only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally Identifying Information
Certain visitors to AMCP’s websites choose to interact with AMCP in ways that require AMCP to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that AMCP gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask entrants who enter our competitions to provide a username and password. Those who wish to receive AMCP updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, AMCP collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with AMCP. AMCP does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
AMCP may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, AMCP may monitor the most popular pages on our websites or use spam screened to help identify spam. AMCP may display this information publicly or provide it to others such as vendors or consultants. However, AMCP does not disclose personally identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally Identifying Information
AMCP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on AMCP’s behalf or to provide services available at AMCP’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using AMCP’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. AMCP will not rent or sell potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, AMCP discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when AMCP believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AMCP, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an AMCP website and have supplied your email address, AMCP may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new competitions, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with our competitions. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. AMCP takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally identifying and personally identifying information.
If AMCP, or substantially all its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that AMCP goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of AMCP may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
Sharing Your Information
We may showcase outstanding entries to our competitions and the creative professionals behind the work, but this is done only if the entrant grants us permission during the online entry process. AMCP recognizes that many entrants are adamant about not wanting their work displayed. Only those entries that grant permission will be considered for inclusion on our various public platforms. Otherwise, only judges will see entries.
