We only collect personal information that is needed to conduct business operations. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience and provide recognition to outstanding creative professionals.
We collect the following types of information from our users:
1. Information You Provide to Us
We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to participate in our competitions. AMCP will never provide your email address to a third party without your explicit permission. AMCP may send out emails with AMCP-related news, products, offers, surveys or promotions if you provide us your email address.
2. Website Use Information
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. AMCP and its authorized agents automatically receive and record certain traffic data on their server logs from your browser, including your IP address, AMCP’s cookie information, and the page you requested. We use this traffic data to help diagnose problems with servers, analyze trends and improve your website experience.
There are programs that help you visit websites anonymously. While AMCP will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we do want you to be aware that these programs are available.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable websites to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages on our website are visited and by how many people.
To learn more about how your browser interacts with cookies, navigate to the “help” portion on your browsers, which should direct you to your cookie settings.
AMCP may also work with third parties to collect visitor data for conversion tracking purposes and market to you on other platforms, such as a social media site like Twitter. If you are interested in opting out of Twitter’s collection of remarketing data, you can find instructions here.
We neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone, and we will share your personal information only as described below.
AMCP personnel and authorized contractors may have access to user information if necessary in the normal course of AMCP’s business to improve visitor experience, provide better customer service, etc.
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets transferred.
Protection of AMCP and Others
We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with a law; to enforce or apply other policies; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of AMCP, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
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.
