You do not need to supply personal data to view the website. However, please be aware that cookies are used to let us monitor how you are using the site, as these will help us make improvements for the future. These will not be linked to any information that allows you to be personally identified. Your IP address may also be used to examine usage trends, but, again, this will not allow for any identification. You can change the settings within your own browser if you wish to restrict the collection of such information. The ‘Cookie’ section (#11 below) gives advice on how to do this but please be aware that changing the settings may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
The ‘Contact us’ form accessed via a link at the bottom of our website homepage is supplied by JotForm and if you use this form to request information from us, the details given may be held for up to 14 months on their servers, until after the end of the active competition year. Personal data supplied in this way will only be used to answer the specific query initiated by you.
If you decide to enter the competition, you will need to supply personal data to enable us to manage your entry, and this may be used for a variety of purposes to facilitate this:
a) as an identifier for the images entered
b) to update you on the progress of your entry
c) to request further information about your entry
d) to respond to queries from you, and to help us to identify you when you get in touch
e) to notify you about changes affecting your entry
f) for accounts and general administration purposes
g) to carry out analysis and customer profiling
On the entry form there are two marketing questions:
a) You will be asked if you wish to receive newsletters and other marketing information from Take a view. If you select ‘yes’ then your details will be added to our list with constantcontact.com. Should you choose to receive marketing material, but then change your mind, you can opt out at any time by selecting the 'unsubscribe' option or by emailing us via the address below.
If you decline the offer of receiving marketing material, then your personal data will be used by Take a view to manage your entry as described in #2 above. Take a view may also use your email address to inform you specifically of the launch of the next year’s competition.
We may share information about you as reasonably necessary for the effective running of the competition, with any of our employees, freelance personnel, sponsors and supporters, suppliers, agents, officers and sub-contractors.
We may, additionally, share your information:
a) In the event that we sell or buy, or plan to sell or buy, any business or assets, in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective buyer or seller of such business or assets,
b) With law enforcement & fraud prevention agencies so that they can tackle fraud. We will share information if we consider that we have to in order to comply with the law or to protect ourselves. We will share information to respond to a court order or subpoena. We may share information if a government agency or investigatory body requests it or if we are investigating potential fraud,
c) To the extent required by Law.
