1. Why this Privacy Policy?

Every person who visits or uses the Website (hereafter: the “Visitor”) as well as every person who relies on our services (hereafter: the “Engaged Creative”) will in most cases disclose a certain amount of personal data. Visitor and Engaged Creatives might be referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Users”. The personal data is information which allows GCR to identify you as a natural person, regardless of whether we actually do this. You are identifiable as soon as it is possible to create a direct or indirect link between one or more data and you as a natural person. The Visitor and the Engaged Creative are hereinafter also jointly referred to as the "Data Subject".

We only use and process your personal data in accordance with the GDPR and any replacement legislation, or any similar regulation under any applicable law, and any regulatory requirements or codes of practice governing the use, storage or transmission of personal data. Every reference in this Privacy Policy to the ‘GDPR’ is a reference to the Regulation of 27 April 2016 on the Protection of Natural Persons with regard to the Processing of Personal Data and on the Free Movement of such Data (General Data Protection Regulation).

Through this Privacy Policy, every User of the Website is informed of the processing activities GCR may carry out with his or her personal data. GCR reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at all times. Every substantial change will be clearly communicated towards the User. We advise you to consult this document regularly.

2.1 Controller

GCR is responsible for the processing and decides alone or in cooperation with others which personal data is being collected as well as the purposes and the technical and organisational means with regard to the processing of this personal data.
GCR has taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the personal data of its Visitors and Engaged Creatives. GCR uses various adequate security technologies and procedures to protect your personal data against unauthorized access, use or disclosure. GCR ensures that your personal data is stored safely in a controlled environment.

2.2 Processor(s)

GCR is free to rely on data processors. A processor is the natural or legal person who processes your personal data upon request and on behalf of the data controller. The processor is required to ensure the security and confidentiality of the data. The processor shall always act on the instructions of the data controller.

  • Companies we have engaged for marketing purposes;
  • Companies we have engaged for ICT technical support and hosting purposes;
  • Companies we have engaged for administrative purposes;
  • Companies we have enabled for communication purposes;
  • Companies we have engaged for analytical purposes;

With a view to the optimal protection of the personal data of our Engaged Creatives, we have made the necessary contractual arrangements with the aforementioned data processors to ensure that they apply the highest privacy standards. In any event, data processors shall be required to ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal data.

3. On what legal grounds is your personal data processed?

In accordance with the GDPR we process personal data on the following legal grounds

  • On the basis of the execution of the contract agreed upon with the Engaged Creative or the execution of pre-contractual steps taken at the request of the Data Subject; or
  • On the basis of compliance with legal or regulatory provisions with regard to the management of the contractual relationship with the Engaged Creative, invoicing in particular;
