If you do not wish to receive notices like this one, we kindly ask you to inform the organizer of your decision.

What kind of information do we collect?

There are numerous situations in which personal data can help us provide a better service. For example, we can search your data when we consider a service problem over the phone, or when you apply for the contest, register or fill in the forms.
