This Privacy Notice applies to State Street Institutional Press Awards website. This Privacy Notice applies to any personal information we may collect from you through this site, independent of the device (i.e. mobile, computer) used to access this site.

State Street Institutional Press Awards may change this Privacy Notice at any time without prior notice to you. Any changes or updates will be effective immediately upon posting to the Site.

If the information collected is about you or relates to you, State Street Institutional Press Awards will treat it as personal information. By contacting us in this manner, you agree to the collection and the use of your personal information for purposes of responding to your request, providing the information requested, and judging your Awards submission(s).

Sensitive personal information

State Street Institutional Press Awards recognize that certain jurisdictions have enacted laws that require higher protection of certain sensitive personal information. "Sensitive personal information" includes categories of personal data identified by European and other data privacy laws as requiring special treatment. This may include personal identity numbers, racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious, philosophical or other similar beliefs, membership of a trade union or profession or trade association, physical or mental health, biometric or genetic data, sexual life, or criminal record (including suspected criminal activities). As a general rule, State Street Institutional Press Awards do not require such sensitive personal information from you.

In the limited cases where we do seek to collect such information, we will seek to do so in accordance with applicable data privacy law requirements. If you choose to provide us with unsolicited sensitive personal information, you consent to us using the information, subject to applicable law as described in this Privacy Notice.

‘Do not Track’ disclosure

Do Not Track (DNT) is a technology standard that is currently under development that will allow you to restrict tracking when browsing from site to site on the Web. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in browsers that support this feature, the browser sends an automated browser signal to the web sites and other web services (such as analytics services, advertising networks, and social platforms) you encounter while browsing to prohibit tracking.

At this time, State Street Institutional Press Awards do not recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, such as “do not track” requests.

How we use and share personal information

The information that we collect enables State Street Institutional Press Awards to provide the information you request, process online submissions for award judging purposes which we would describe to you at the point where the information is collected. The purposes for which your information may be processed include but are not limited to the following:

How we protect your personal information

We use security measures, in compliance with applicable law, to protect personal information from unauthorized access or use. Yet you should understand that the open nature of the Internet is such that information and personal information may flow, without security measures, over networks connecting you to our systems and may be accessed and used by people other than those for whom the data is intended.
