We require also to process the information of the nominee in order to process the LIFT Theme Award nomination. We collect the personal information necessary to process applications. This is with the purpose of making a determination of eligibility and suitability for an award. As part of the nomination process, we may collect or receive sensitive personal data about a nominee, including data revealing details of that person’s background.

We will always ensure that this information is held confidentially and accessed only by those people involved in processing the nomination.

How Long Your Personal Data will be Kept:

After this time the personal information will be securely destroyed. We will destroy all nomination forms by end-May 2020.

Reasons we Collect and use Your Personal Information:

We rely on consent for the taking and use of photos, sound bites and video recordings. The approved photographer will be made aware of those who have not provided their consent.
