Assigned Data Protection Officer: James Satterley
In order for us to make awesome videos for our clients, we collect and use a very small amount of data. This data will typically include your business contact information: Your name, job Title, business email address, business telephone number and occasionally our clients share their mobile phone numbers although we never request this.
We’ll never ask for personal information such as bank details, home address, shoe size or mothers maiden name. Regardless of this, at Posh Gecko we understand that all data – whether it is publicly available or not – is important and should be handled with care.
Why do we collect your data?
Posh Gecko primarily collects to know who is responsible for the project within the organisation and secondly so we know who and where to send our invoices. Without this information it would be impossible for us to work on a project.
How do we collect your data?
Your data is typically collected in one of three ways. 1. We receive your information via email when you contact us. 2. If you call us we will ask you during the conversation in order to assist you with your quotation/proposal/project. 3. We will collect publicly available information from the organisations website.
Where do we store your data?
Our client information is stored within our password protected and encrypted online CRM and Accounts system. Posh Gecko does not accept any form of card payments so we will never store these.
When will we share your data?
We will never share your data or sell your data with any 3rd party.

What about Cookies?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and present them with tailored content.
The Posh Gecko website utilises Cookies supplied by the following third parties: Google Analytics, Facebook Pixel and the Linkedin Insight Tag. We do not ask your permission to use these cookies because all collected information is anonymous. If you delete the Cookie from your browser, next time you visit our website you will be assigned a new Cookie.
The reason for using Cookies is so that we are able to present you with information that we believe best suits your needs, based on your previous activity visiting our website.
Google Analytics: We use this Cookie to monitor the performance of our website. Details such as page popularity, loading times, portfolio interest and types of device used to browse our site, are all monitored.
Facebook Pixel: When a visitor browses the Posh Gecko website the Facebook Pixel is triggered and shares the information with our Facebook account. This allows us to advertise our services to yourself on Facebook. This data is completely anonymous and we do not have any way of accessing or seeing personal user information.

Posh Gecko does not operate an opt in mailing list within the footer of our website, or any form of mailing list purchased from a 3rd party supplier. However, Posh Gecko will occasionally email correspondence to clients that have previously worked with Posh Gecko.
Before the 25th May 2018 and the commencement of new GDPR regulations across the EU, Posh Gecko gave all members of this mailing list the opportunity to un-subscribe if they wished to. New clients will also be given this opportunity before being included within the monthly newsletter.
We believe in collecting minimal data from our clients. This is to ensure that should there be a breach of security, only data that is already within the public domain can be obtained. This is why we never ask you for a personal email address, home address, telephone number or bank details. We will only request your business contact information.
