Some of the personal information you provide may be stored or processed by third-party suppliers and data processors on our behalf. These entities may be located in jurisdictions such as the United States and UK, where laws regarding data protection may differ from those in your own jurisdiction. Additionally, there may be transfers of personal information from the European Economic Area (EEA) to countries outside the EEA that do not offer an adequate level of data protection from a European perspective, such as the United States.

To address this, we implement appropriate safeguards for data transfers to such recipients outside the EEA. This may include utilizing European Union (EU) standard contractual clauses, as amended from time to time, or equivalent data transfer safeguards. We take all necessary steps to ensure that your personal information is treated securely and in compliance with this Policy, regardless of where it is processed.

It's important to note that GigsRepo may contain links to third-party websites.

We advise you to review the privacy policies of each site you visit. This Policy exclusively pertains to personal information collected by our site.

If you upload content, including personal information, to a social network and then tag GigsRepo, your submission will be subject to the terms of use and privacy policy of that social network, even if you post on an official GigsRepo page on the social network. We do not have authority over these terms of use and privacy policies and have not assessed their adequacy. Therefore, we recommend reviewing them before submitting any personal information.

At GigsRepo, we prioritize the security of our site, services, and the personal information entrusted to us. To this end, we employ a combination of technical and organizational measures aimed at preventing unauthorized access, loss, misuse, alteration, destruction, or damage to personal information. These measures leverage industry-standard technologies and internal procedures.

One of our key security measures involves maintaining a PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) certification, particularly concerning credit card payments, as required by industry standards. Additionally, we ensure through contractual agreements that any third party handling your personal information maintains confidentiality and integrity of your data in a secure manner.

However, it's essential to recognize that transmitting data over the internet is not entirely foolproof. While we take every precaution to safeguard your personal information, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of data transmitted to our site. Once we receive your data, we implement stringent procedures and security features to thwart unauthorized access.
