Privacy Policy

Introduction: This privacy policy sets out how Human Rights and Business Award Foundation collects and processes personal information. The Foundation handles a small amount of personal data and does so in compliance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We will not sell or rent your personal data to anyone. 

What data we collect and how: If you contact us or attend our annual award presentation, or if you are on our contact list of individuals interested in human rights, the information collected may include your name, e-mail, phone, and the organization you represent. We collect the content of messages you send to us, such as feedback and information you provide.

Our website uses an encrypted connection using an HTTPS security certificate. This means that any information between the website and your browser is sent securely and can’t be intercepted or snooped on in transit.

As is common practice with almost all professional websites this site uses cookies, which are tiny files that are downloaded to your computer, to improve your experience. We use cookies for remembering the language preference of users. You can change your cookie preferences via the “Cookie preferences” page of this website.

Embedded content: Some content on our site may be provided by third parties, for example YouTube. When you visit a page containing content from other parties a cookie may be set by them. We do not have any control over these cookies and you should check the relevant third party website for information.

Links: The Foundation’s website and emails may contain hyperlinks to other websites which are outside our control and are not covered by this privacy policy. The Foundation is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of these third party websites.

What we do with the data we collect: The Foundation largely uses personal data to enable communications with individuals and organizations that are interested or involved in human rights. For example, the Foundation sends to its database of contacts the annual announcement of the award recipient. If you receive communications from the Foundation and would like your details removed from our contacts list, you will be able to unsubscribe using the link at the end of the specific communication.

Security and compelled disclosure: We may share your information in response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law.

Retention and deletion of your information: We will delete the information that we hold about you when we no longer need it. You can request to view, edit or remove your personal data by contacting us:
