Privacy Policy

We understand that you like your privacy and we will always respect and take this seriously. This Privacy Policy describes how we treat the signup information we receive from you. Please read the following carefully:

Email address

In order to receive the newsletter, we will require your email address. We will only send email notifications when the new deadlines are being added to the website, or to notify you of any gophotoawards.com changes.

We will never sell, rent or share your email address with any third parties.

Your email address is currently only shared with our third-party email provider, MailerLite. Your information is shared exclusively for the purpose of delivering our emails, meaning MailerLite is responsible for getting our emails to you.

We may also disclose your email address as required by law.

If you’d like to remove your email address or delete your account from the list, you may do so by unsubscribing. Simply go to any of gophotoawards emails, scroll to the bottom and click on “unsubscribe me.”

Push notifications

We send notices to your device when the new deadlines are being added to the website. If you no longer wish to receive such communications, you may turn them off at the device level.

Accountability for links

Responsibility for the content of external links (to web pages of third parties) lies solely with the operators of the linked pages. No violations were evident to us at the time of linking. Should any legal infringement become known to us, we will remove the respective link immediately.

Data protection

A visit to our website can result in the storage on our server of information about the access (date, time, page accessed). This does not represent any analysis of personal data (e.g., name, address or e-mail address). If personal data are collected, this only occurs – to the extent possible – with the prior consent of the user of the website. Any forwarding of the data to third parties without the express consent of the user shall not take place.

We would like to expressly point out that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g., by e-mail) can offer security vulnerabilities. It is therefore impossible to safeguard the data completely against access by third parties. We cannot assume any liability for damages arising as a result of such security vulnerabilities.

The use by third parties of all published contact details for the purpose of advertising is expressly excluded. We reserve the right to take legal steps in the case of the unsolicited sending of advertising information; e.g., by means of spam mail.
