We Respect Your Privacy
The Hopper Prize (“we”,”us”,”hopperprize.org”) respects your right to privacy and is committed to safeguarding the privacy of our customers and website visitors.

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” is defined as information or data that The Hopper Prize has in its records which allows you as an individual to be identified directly or indirectly.

This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for The Hopper Prize and our website; hopperprize.org. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by this website, except where stated otherwise.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g., to review your submissions.
Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy.

Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the contact form provided on our website:
• See what data we have about you, if any.
• Change/correct any data we have about you.
• Have us delete any data we have about you.
• Express any concern you have about our use of your data

Twice a year our site requests information via competitions. Participation in these competitions is completely voluntary and you may choose whether or not to participate and therefore disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes.

In order to participate in a competition, a user must first complete the submission form. During submission a user is required to give certain information (such as name and email address). This information is used to contact you about the competitions on our site in which you have expressed interest.

If you choose to enter a competition at https://hopperprize.org, we may share the aggregated information you provide to us with our partners. This includes the information contained in your submission to us.

We partner with third parties (e.g. leading art industry professionals and institutional curators) to review the information you submit to us for the purpose of selecting grant winners, finalists, and Instagram features.

When you fill out and submit the application form, we will share that information with our partners to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

When you win a prize or are selected for a shortlist, we will publish your submission to hopperprize.org to make your work, artist statement, biography, personal website address, and social media handles available to our audience.

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

If you choose to enter a competition and pay a submission fee online at hopperprize.org using a Credit or Debit Card, your card details are encrypted and securely store by Stripe.

Your card details are not stored by us and cannot be accessed or used by our staff.

Do Not Track “DNT” Signals

We exclude users from our internal analytics processing in response to DNT signals.
