The information collected by log files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is for analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movement on the website, and gathering demographic information.

We will only keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for.

Please note that nominees are eligible for consideration by the jury for several years, so we maintain and review records as long as they are relevant.
