Data updating and liability

Users undertake to accurately and truthfully enter all required personal and project information. Forms will not be presented to the panel, and thus get the chance of being selected and subsidised, unless they are fully and correctly completed. The data will be stored by the Young Europeans Award as long as the database exists. If a user’s project is selected by the panel, the information entered by the user (descriptions, photos, documents, etc.) will be released and put online to make it accessible to the public. Selected users may edit their data, or add data, files and texts, throughout the entire project term.

Users undertake to procure in advance the respective rights (e.g. copyrights or image copyrights of the participants on photos) to all files, texts, pictures, etc. to which they do not hold the sole rights. They furthermore undertake not to upload any illegal contents onto the platform. The Young Europeans Award does not assume liability for any damage third parties may incur through the use of the data.

Use, transfer and safeguarding of data

The users’ personal data as registered in the database are exclusively accessible to the organisers of the Young Europeans Award competition. The project-related data, files and texts are accessible to the public to increase the competition’s visibility and provide examples of successful projects.

The online form may be used by German, French and Polish teachers, youth group leaders and adults interested in the Young Europeans Award competition who would like to take part or submit applications by underage groups that they supervise in the context of the competition. The Young Europeans Award shall not transfer or sell data to other third parties, especially not for commercial purposes.  

The Young Europeans Award reserves the right to use the data in anonymised form for statistical purposes and for internal reasons. Furthermore, the Young Europeans Award reserves the right to contact users for the purpose of providing information or monitoring quality (assessment of the exchange programme). The users shall be informed of any change in the use of the data and may reject such change in certain circumstances. Should the safety of the users’ data be in danger at a future time despite all security measures or should an unauthorised third party have accessed the data, the Partners of the Young Europeans Award shall notify the users without delay.
