- Peace Direct will undertake due diligence on any applications it is considering for shortlisting for the awards prize.

By agreeing to these Terms, the Applicant indemnifies, defends and holds harmless Peace Direct, its agents, partners and employees and all persons, including but not limited to other participants and judges in the awards, from any and all claims and costs arising directly or indirectly out of any of his/her activities, acts and/or omissions, which are concerned with his/her participation in the Tomorrow’s Peacebuilders awards.
The personal data included in this form will be held by us, and shared with our U.S. office, solely for the purposes of judging your entry. We will use the contact's name and address to communicate about the progress of the application. The referees' details will be used to request references if and only if your organisation is shortlisted. Applications of shortlisted organisations only will be shared with the panel of judges in order to select the prizewinners.
Personal data from the application forms will be stored on Microsoft SharePoint (and is thus accessible by Microsoft and our IT support service provider Softwerx according to agreements which only allow them access to our data in order to provide the services we have contracted them for). All information will be destroyed by the end of July 2019. After this point separate arrangements may be made with shortlisted entrants/prizewinners for further use of their data for promotional purposes, on the basis of their consent.
