When you enter the UK Catalyst Awards, we ask you to send us some personal information. We also collect information anonymously when you visit the UK Catalyst Awards website (ukcatalystawards.co.uk). This policy explains how we collect and use your personal information about you and how you can update and change it.

Who we are and how to contact us

Your information is held by UK Catalyst Awards. In this policy words such as “we”, “our”, “us”, etc, means UK Catalyst Awards. You can contact us by emailing us at sales[AT]ukcatalystawards.com or using our contact form.


This policy applies to information collected in connection with the UK Catalyst Awards. It does not apply to information that you send to anyone else. The information may be collected online or by some other method, for example a telephone call, letter, or through a written form.

What Information We Collect

Typically we ask you for the information listed on the UK Catalyst Awards website entry form. We may ask for, or you may send us, additional information relevant to your entry or enquiry.

We may collate together information that you give us on different occasions into a single record.

If your entry is short-listed, we will ask you to provide a short video pitch for your entry which will be made available publicly.

We use cookies and other technologies to track your interactions with the UK Catalyst website. This information is collected anonymously. We do this whether or not you send us any personal information, and it is not linked to any personal information you do send us.

What We Do With Your Information

We will use your information to administer the UK Catalyst Awards. This may involve contacting you to inform you of the outcome of your entry, request additional information, or other relevant communication.

We may also use your information for statistical analysis of the UK Catalyst Awards entries. This will not involve the disclosure of your personal information to anyone else. No individual will be identifiable in the results of the analysis.

We will delete your information when we believe that it is no longer useful for these purposes, or sooner if you ask us to do so.

Who Can See Your Information

We will disclose your information to the judging panel, as they will need to see it in order to judge your entry.

We will share relevant parts of your information with the supporters, sponsors and partners of the UK Catalyst Awards. They may also use the information to contact you directly. The copy of your information that they have will be subject to their privacy policy. The current list of supporters, sponsors and partners is shown on the UK Catalyst Awards website. The list may be updated from time to time.

We will make public announcements that include the names and brief descriptions of the short-listed entries and winners.

We may contract with suppliers to undertake processing or storage of the information on our behalf. These suppliers will not have the right to retain or use your information for their own purposes, and will be restricted to using your information only as described in this policy on our behalf.

Due to the global nature of the internet, using the internet to collect and process personal data necessarily involves the transmission of data on an international basis. Additionally, we may work with companies that have operations in other countries. Therefore, your information may be transmitted to or stored in other countries, including countries where data protection legislation is different than in the UK and may offer you less protection.

We will not sell, rent, loan or give your information to anyone else. However we will disclose it if in our reasonable belief:

  • we are required by law to disclose it, or
  • it would help to prevent or detect crime if we disclose it to relevant authorities (for example the police), or
  • there are any legal proceedings to which it is pertinent, but only to relevant parties.

Changes to This Policy

If we change this policy, we will update it on the UK Catalyst Awards website.

Updating Your Information – Your Choices

You may change your information, confirm what information we hold about you, request deletion of your information, ask questions about this policy, or change your consent for use of information by contacting us.
