Entering Awards - Data usage

By completing any forms on this website, you will be asked to provide consent for the usage of your data alongside the purpose or requiring that data. If you choose to enter, it is necessary for us to communicate with you regarding this event. We also believe you would have a legitimate interest in hearing about event specific updates and opportunities related to this and similar events.

Collection of IP address and purpose(s)

When you submit a form through this site it is necessary for us to collect the IP address where the submission originated from. This IP address is not kept and will only ever be required in the event we believe the source to be abusing or spamming the site - an example of this is providing junk submissions.

Should we suspect a source of abusing the website, we will ban the relevant IP addresses to minimise abuse and ensure that the website data is protected.

Site Improvements

IT Europa uses a 3rd party application called ‘Hotjar’ to monitor how the website is interacted with. Interaction with the site such as mouse movement and clicks will be recorded so we can identify user experience difficulties. All recordings are totally anonymised and will prevent us from tracking/monitoring information typed in.

Hotjar, like us is fully GDPR compliant and minimises risk that information can be used to identify an individual. You can read further into the steps Hotjar takes to remain GDPR compliant and anonymise data - https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/gdpr-commitment
