However, we have no way of checking whether a visitor is above the age of sixteen. We recommend parents to be aware of the internet activities of their children, to prevent that the personal data of these children is recorded without parental authorisation.

Automated decision-making
The Maastricht Human Rights Prize Foundation does not accept nor implement decisions which have come forth out of automated processing when it comes to issues that may have (significant) consequences for individuals.

How long do we keep your personal data?
The Maastricht Human Rights Prize Foundation will not keep your personal data for longer than is strictly necessary to realise the goals in purpose of which your data was gathered.
