Online Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (the “policy”) tells you how The Opus Prize Foundation uses personal information on its website, opusprize.org. The policy tells you about our practices regarding collection,  disclosure, processing, sharingand storage of information that you may provide via this website or through other features, applications, emails, content, downloads, products or services (collectively, the “site”) that are operated by The Opus Prize Foundation.

By using the site, you are accepting the practices described in this policy and the related Terms of Use. These practices may be changed, but any changes will be posted and changes will only apply to activities and information on a going forward, not retroactive basis. You are encouraged to review the policy whenever you visit the site to make sure you understand how personal information you provide will be used.

Note: The privacy practices set forth in this Policy are for this Site only. If you link to other web sites, please review the privacy policies posted at those sites.


This policy includes any separate privacy notices and/or notices posted on particular pages of the site that may provide more detail regarding personal information we collect, why we need that information and choices you may have about the ways we use that information.

If you sign up to use a special feature of the site, you may be asked to expressly consent to special terms, for example, by checking a box or clicking on a button marked, “I agree.”  This separate agreement will supplement or amend this policy, but only with respect to the matters governed by such separate agreement.

If you are located outside of the United States, please note that any personal information collected through this site may be transferred to the United States and other countries that might not provide an equivalent level of protection as the data protection laws in your home country. Your use of this site or submission of any personal information will therefore constitute your consent to the transfer of your personal information outside your home country. 

Collection of Information

We receive personal information shared through forms as needed. Except as expressly stated herein, the information you provide is only used to fulfill your specific request, unless you give us permission to use it in another manner. Personal information we collect may include, for example, an individual's name, address, e-mail address and/or phone number.  We may also collect a user name, password and other registration information. 

We may also collect statistical information that helps us understand how people are using the site. The information collected is not associated with any specific individual and no attempt is made to profile individuals who use the site. The Opus Prize Foundation may analyze server logs for statistical purposes and does not use this information to personally identify users. The Opus Prize Foundation may employ Google Analytics, for example, to analyze how users are utilizing the site.

Disclosure of Information

Disclosure to Third Parties

At times, The Opus Prize Foundation may make certain personal information available to strategic partners or service providers who work with us, or that help us operate the Site.  We do not currently share personal information with third parties for their marketing purposes.


It may be necessary by law, legal process, litigation and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence for The Opus Prize Foundation to disclose your personal information. We also may disclose information if we determine, for purposes of national security, law enforcement or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

We also may disclose information to government agencies or other third parties if we determine disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions, protect our operations or users or assist us in fraud prevention, detection or investigation. 

Cookies and Other Technologies

The site may use cookie and tracking technology, depending on the features offered. Cookie and tracking technology is useful for gathering information, such as browser type and operating system, tracking the number of visitors to the site and understanding how visitors use the site. Cookies can also help customize the site for visitors. Information provided via application form or other personal information cannot be collected via cookies and other tracking technology; however, if you previously provided personally identifiable information, cookies may be tied to such information. Aggregate cookie and tracking information may be shared with third parties.

You can configure your web browser to refuse cookies or notify you when a website attempts to send you a cookie. You can also check your hard drive for cookie files and delete them from your computer. Please note, however, if you turn off cookies, the site may not work as intended and may lose some functionality.

We do not currently collect “targeted” cookies (persistent identifiers tracking users across different sites and services) for purposes of advertising, and it is not our policy to permit third parties to collect them. In addition, we do not currently respond to “Do Not Track” browser signals.

Commitment to Data Security

We maintain reasonable administrative, physical and technological measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity and security of personal information you submit on or through this site. Only authorized employees, agents and contractors (who have agreed to keep information secure and confidential) have access to this information. All emails and newsletters from the site allow you to opt out of further mailings.

Privacy of Children

The site is a general audience site not designed nor intended to collect personal information from children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 13. We do not use such information, and will take reasonable measures to delete it if we discover it is has been provided. The Site is not a child-directed site in whole or in part. The site does not target children under the age of 13 as a primary or secondary audience.


You have the right to access your personal information stored with us to ensure it is accurate, complete and current. Upon request, we will grant you reasonable access, except where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy or where the rights of other persons would be violated. In addition, we will take reasonable steps to correct, amend or delete information you can independently demonstrate is inaccurate or incomplete.

You may withdraw your consent to the collection, use and transfer of your personal information. However, please note, by withdrawing your consent, it may be impossible for us to continue providing you with certain services.


We retain personal information collected under this policy for as long as there is a business need for it, in accordance with applicable record retention policies and a range of legal and regulatory recordkeeping requirements.
