Privacy Policy – Summit Awards

Privacy Policy

The Summit International Awards will not rent, lease, sell or barter email addresses, or other contact information, to third parties. As an Entrant, you give your written consent to receive the Summit Award’s periodic e-newsletter. In addition, we will only send you Summit Awards emails directly related to our competitions and upcoming events. Our newsletter is typically monthly, however, we do send reminders as we approach competition deadlines. In addition, we may send you occasional invitations to participate in a survey or questionnaire which we use to help improve our operations and services. We follow best practices for email marketing and CAN-SPAM compliance. Translation: Do not click SPAM, simply unsubscribe.

The Summit Awards reserves the right to reclassify incorrectly classified entries. All submissions become the property of the Summit Awards and cannot be returned. We respect and acknowledge the intellectual copyright of the entering firms’ creative work and fully protect those rights.

The Summit Awards respects the privacy of its judges and is grateful for their contribution to our organization and the industry. In adherence to the Summit Award’s blind judging practices, it does not publicly publish jury members prior to winner announcements. We respectfully ask our entrants to not contact judges directly. Should an entrant be curious as to whether a judge had an opinion or feedback regarding a particular entry, we ask our entrants to direct their inquiry to the Summit Award’s staff. If direct contact is made with a judge, the Summit Awards may take action to disqualify an entrant from further participation in its programs or strip a winning entry of its status.

Winning entries in any of the Summit Awards competitions can be showcased in various ways. Publication is at the sole discretion of the Summit Awards unless an entrant has made arrangement for confidentiality prior to entering an award.

The Summit Awards will not publicly distribute specific information about winning other than the level achieved. Any specific scoring or comments are solely for the internal use of the Summit Awards.

Unsubscribing
You may unsubscribe at any time from our email list by sending an email to sia (at) summitawards.com or by using the unsubscribe link contained in our newsletters or mailings. However, please note that you will be globally unsubscribed from all three of the Summit Awards competition notices.
