Privacy Policy

The World Social Media Awards (“WSMA’s”) are committed to protecting your privacy. We understand that the information we collect about you is your information, and we intend to keep it that way. We collect information from you in the following places on our website for several different services and site functions outlined below.


Call for Entries

When you submit an entry we need to know your name, phone number, email and the account names and/or addresses of your social media channels so that we can process your entry and notify you if you are a finalist and/or winner.


Technical information

We also collect the following technical information about you when you visit our website: modem speed, login id, password, the prior website you visited, the following website you visit, the time you spend browsing the site, the number of banner advertisements you click, keyword searches you conduct, your IP (Internet Protocol) address, your browser type, your operating system, your computer type, your internet service provider and time stamps.

We may use this personal information to improve our services to you and to customise your browsing experience. Because merely links to — and does not publish — content supplied by third parties or generally available on the internet, is not responsible for information collected by these third parties, or for any information gathered by third party advertising companies through the use of banner ads. We recommend that you read the privacy policy of other sites you may link to from our site.


How can you edit your personal information?

You may change your personal information at any time by emailing [email protected] and describing the changes you would like to make.


How do the World Social Media Awards protect customer information?

All of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorised access.


What about “cookies”?

A cookie — a small text file placed on a user’s hard drive — is generated by a software application on a site’s server. We use temporary session cookies to assign to you and store a SessionID on all secure pages. These cookies allow you to move uninterrupted between areas of our secure site. This SessionID is not personally identifiable to you and this type of cookie does not leave any retrievable information on your hard drive.

We also use a third party service provider to collect non-personally identifiable IP addresses and entry-point and search form information to monitor the number of visitors to the site and the usage of our site. This is done through the use of both permanent and session cookies.

We use a session cookie on our site to determine whether or not you are accepting cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser to prevent that. Even without a cookie, you can still use most of the features on our site, but you cannot enter your site for a World Social Media Award.

The World Social Media Awards may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information.

Your consent

By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of information by the World Social Media Awards as stated herein. If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
