Privacy Policy.

We’re all about clarity and openness. Just like when you’re tuning in to your favourite podcast, we believe you should know exactly what’s going on. So, with that same transparency in mind, let’s get into our privacy policy.

Policies

The Definitions

  • Data– This is the star of our show. It’s all the information you give us via the Website. And when we talk about ‘Data’, we’re aligning with the definitions set out in the Data Protection Laws.
  • Cookies– Not as tasty as they sound! These are tiny text files your computer gets when you visit or use parts of the Website. We’ll let you know more about these guys in our “Cookies” section.
  • Data Protection Laws– These are the rules we follow to ensure we’re handling your Data correctly. This includes the UK’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and any other relevant laws or regulations.
  • The Podcast Guys Ltd, we, or us– That’s us! We’re a UK-based company, specifically, we’re at Quadrant House, Croydon Road, Caterham, CR3 6TR.
  • User or you– That’s you! You’re someone who’s checking out our Website. Unless, of course, you’re working for us, or you’re a consultant working with us.
  • Website– This is the virtual stage where it all happens, our domain, https://www.thepodcastguys.co.uk, and any of its sub-domains.

What This Privacy Policy Covers

This policy is all about how we, The Podcast Guys Ltd, interact with you, the User, on this Website. This doesn’t cover any other websites you might find from ours, such as any links we provide to social media.

In the eyes of the Data Protection Laws, we’re the “data controller”. That means we decide why and how your Data gets processed.

Data We Collect

We might need to collect some Data from you, which could include personal Data, like:

  • Your name
  • Job title
  • Contact info like email and phone numbers
  • Your project budgets

How We Collect Data

We collect your Data in two main ways:

  • When you give it to us directly
  • When we collect it automatically

Now, when might you give us Data? Well, if you contact us through our Website, phone, post, email, or any other way. Or, when you choose to receive marketing comms from us.

As for collecting Data automatically, we do that every time you visit our Website. We collect some info to help us make the Website better. That includes things like your IP address, how often you visit, how you interact with the Website, and more. We might also collect Data automatically using cookies, depending on your browser’s cookie settings. You can learn more in our “Cookies” section.

How We Use Your Data

We use the Data you give us to provide the best possible service and experience on our Website. For example, we might use it to get in touch for market research, which could happen via email, phone, or mail.

Who We Share Data With

We might share your Data with the following:

  • Third-party service providers who help us out and need to process personal data – like Google Analytics.

Keeping Your Data Safe

We’re committed to keeping your Data safe, just like we would with our own podcasting equipment. That’s why:

  • We keep your Data on secure servers.
  • We have measures in place in case of any suspected data breaches.

If you think there’s been misuse, loss, or unauthorised access to your data, please let us know by contacting us ASAP at [email protected].

Data Retention

Unless required or permitted by law to keep it longer, we only hold onto your Data for as long as necessary to provide the services you’ve requested.

Your Rights

Just like every good podcast episode has its conclusion, your Data story should also have a clear ending. You have the right to access, correct, erase, restrict, transfer, or object to us processing your Data. If you want to exercise any of these rights, give us a shout at [email protected].

You Can Also Complain To The ICO

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the UK’s supervisory authority, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). For further information about your rights, you can visit the ICO’s website. But hey, we’re all about creating a great experience here, so if you have any issues, do reach out to us first.

Links To Other Websites

You might find links to other websites on ours. These sites aren’t governed by this privacy policy. So, like a surprise album drop, you’ll need to check out their own privacy policies when you visit them.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

Just like the podcasting world is always evolving, so too might our privacy policy. Any changes will be posted on this page, so you’re always in the know. We may also let you know about changes via email or on our Website, so you can check them out and decide if you still want to be part of our audience.

Cookies

And finally, let’s get into the cookies. As we mentioned before, these aren’t the snackable kind! When you visit our Website, we may collect Data about you through cookies. These help us give you a better user experience and allow us to analyse the Website’s performance.

The Types of Cookies We Use:

  1. Essential cookies:These are needed for you to move around our Website and use its features.
  2. Performance cookies:These let us recognise and count the number of visitors we have, and see how they move around when they’re using it.
  3. Functionality cookies:These are used to recognise you when you return to our Website.

You can manage cookies by clicking here.

Blocking Cookies

If you’d rather go without cookies (and we’d totally understand), you can block them by adjusting your browser settings. Check out the “Help” section of your browser for how to do this.

And that’s it! You’ve reached the end of our Privacy Policy. We hope it’s been as clear and straightforward as we strive to make it. Just remember, when you use our Website, you’re agreeing to all the terms above. If you have any questions or concerns, you know where to find us –[email protected].
