Overview

Here at Crosscut, we’re serious about privacy. We want you to know that we’re not in the business of selling or trading email lists with other companies; all of our relationships are based on trust and confidence. Just in case you’re interested, this privacy policy provides lots of information about how and when we collect personal data, how we use it and the limited conditions under which we may share it. Yes, it’s that whole ‘GDPR thing’ which we’re sure you’ve been inundated about over the last few months.

Email

 When you email Crosscut Media using either our online contact form or directly from your email software or webmail, you are agreeing that we may collect and hold any personal information that you share with us. This may include but not be limited to:

  1. Your email address
  2. Your name
  3. Your phone number(s)

We will only use this data to get in touch with you within the confines of potential, upcoming, current or past business between you and Crosscut Media. This data is stored on secure, EU-based servers owned by Google and may be retained for as long as deemed necessary whilst you continue to engage Crosscut Media LLP’s services.

Bio-Metric Data (If we’ve caught you on camera!)

Under the new GDPR laws, we must acquire consent from all persons appearing on screen who may be identified (i.e, you’re close up on screen and we can see your whole face). Consent may be acquired in a variety of ways:

 

1. Personal Release Form

When realistic, we’ll ask you to fill out a personal release form. The data given on your release form will only be used to show your consent and you will not be contacted. We may retain this release form for as long as your image is visible within the public domain.

 

2. Crowd Release Sign

In some circumstances (large events for instance), we may display crowd release signs. These signs will describe what we are filming, how the footage will be used and how to revoke your consent.

 

3. Verbal consent

Occasionally we may tell you verbally, on camera what the footage will be used for and ask your permission to use it. This works in the same way as a general release form, and the footage maybe retained for as long as your image is in the public domain.

 

The specifics of where your image will be used will differ from project to project and be outlined within your release form or visible on crowd release signs. As the subject, you have the right to access images of yourself and/or have them removed from our files.

Sharing Your Information

There are very few instances where sharing your details may be necessary. These may include but not be limited to:

  1. Sharing information with a third-party supplier in the course of a business engagement.

We will always ask your permission before sharing any personal information.

 

 

 

You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to  privacy@crosscut-media.co.uk
