Privacy Policy

The Tendring Blue Ribbon Awards are committed to protecting your privacy. This page explains our policy on collecting, storing and processing personal information and steps you can take to protect your privacy whilst using our website.

Collecting personal information

When you provide Tendring Blue Ribbon Awards with personal information, for example, when nominating or using the contact us form on this website, we take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely.

Your personal information

We store and utilise your information for the purpose of providing information to the Judges of The Tendring Blue Ribbon Awards only. In general terms this means that it is used for shortlisting and judging purposes only. It may be used for contacting you by post, telephone or email.

Personal information you submit on this website is sent via email. The TBR Awards committee makes every effort to ensure the security and integrity of emails on our systems. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information after we’ve received it, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of information when it is being transmitted.

We will not sell or rent your information to third parties.

We will not share your information with third parties for marketing purposes.

Any persons with access to your information have a duty of confidentiality.

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual.
