What data do we collect?

If you do not wish to be credited, you can remove any identifying information from your submission, or note ‘anonymous credit’ on your submission.

We share your data with other companies as part of our work process, for cloud storage, backup and website services. These include: Google, Microsoft, Dropbox, and Apple. 

We don’t use your contact information for marketing purposes, unless you specifically sign up to our mailing list, which is optional and can be unsubscribed at any time. In the event that we need to share data for other reasons, we will ask you for your permission and what contact information, if any, we are able to share.
