Privacy Policy

This policy has been updated on 14 Mar 2022 and complies with the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the DPA (Data Protection Act) and the PECR (Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations) recently enacted in Europe. Though it it a bit odd because I am mostly not in Europe.

ANONYMITY

Yes, you can browse this site anonymously. We only collect data when you fill out a form. If you don’t tell us who you are, we won’t know. However Google and Facebook might know. They do follow you around like lost puppies. Evil puppies.

GENERAL

Your privacy is important to us. This privacy policy is intended to give you confidence in the privacy and security of the personal information you might choose to give us when you inquire about a show. What you tell other services like google and facebook, that is between you, and them, and the creepy people they sell that to.

COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

When you inquire about a booking or make one you will be asked for personally identifiable information such as your name, address, email address, telephone number. We need this information to be able to communicate with you about your booking, that is what we use it for.

By giving us such information, you consent to our using it in the manner described in this policy.

You may withdraw your consent at any time by emailing us at privacy@gerardv.com. We will destroy your personal information within seven days of receipt of your withdrawal of consent.

Website pages that were visited and your IP address may also be recorded by third parties from your browser as set out in this policy. We use open web analytics to see what web pages get visited and which ones get more attention. We don’t collect any information that identifies you personnaly.

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We use personal information to allow us to process your inquiries and bookings, and to send email to you about the show, since you asked. If you do not wish to receive our rather infrequent emails, please e-mail privacy@gerardv.com or, alternatively, if we ever send you a newsletter, it will contain a provision for you to opt out of receiving further communication (unsubscribe).

You’ll mostly be corresponding with an individual (Gerard V or his agent) on an individual basis. That communication is treated as confidential and is only used by Gerard V and his team to facilitate your booking, to answer your questions, and to do your show. And perhaps we will email you after a show to follow up or ask about a future booking. You always have the right to ask to be deleted.

TESTIMONIALS

If you provide a testimonial to us after an event, we may post the text online, along with your name and organisation. If you don’t want to be identified please let us know when you provide the testimonial. After all - what is the point of giving us a testimonial if no-one can see it eh?

DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We will not disclose your personal information to any third party unless you have consented to such disclosure or where we are required to do so by law.

COOKIES

Cookies are small data files that a website you visit may save on your computer or handheld device that usually includes an anonymous unique identifier. We use cookies to see what pages people visit - so we know what people are reading and what we can do without.

The other time there'll be a cookie is when we are testing a new version of a web page.

SECURITY

All security on our Websites is treated seriously. Where applicable, we undertake security steps, including use of SSL technology, on our back-end systems that store customer account information and to protect data transmissions. However, this is not a guarantee that such data transmissions cannot be accessed, altered or deleted due to firewall or other security software failures.

If you have any further concerns about security, please email our Customer Service team at privacy@gerardv.com

POLICY CHANGES

Changes in this policy will be posted on our website. You are advised to check our websites to view our most recent privacy policy. Which I agree is a bit of an ask. But if we had to email you every time a change got made you’d soon be annoyed with us.

DELETING YOUR DATA

If you want us to delete your data for any reason at all just send a request to: privacy@gerardv.com and we will delete the data we have (which isn't much). However we cannot delete financial records associated with a show because that is needed for tax compliance purposes. So what we will delete is your name and address details etc.. And unless you insist otherwise - we keep a list of "unsubscribed" emails (nothing else) to make sure those are never accidentally re-added by mistake.
