terms of business
We’ll keep this straightforward because we know not everyone wants to read long and overwhelming legal paragraphs!

Just remember these 3 things…

 No to Spams 
We assure you that we take care of your information like our own. We process information about you in accordance with our privacy policy.
 No to Shams 
Only the top 10% of candidates pass our screening process! We are confident that we will find you only the absolute best Virtual Assistants available from the Philippines! In the rare scenario that you are unhappy with your Virtual Assistant, we'll replace them within 3 months of them starting work with you. That’s a long guarantee period!
 No to Scams 
We’ve helped hundreds of entrepreneurs and small business owners in different industries find and work with quality support from Philippine remote workers in their businesses. We are continually focused on actively growing these relationships and our entrepreneurial community.
You may click on any title to jump to a section.
1. Who are we?
 The Freedom Geek Ltd is a private limited company registered in England. Our company number is 10679811, and our registered office is at 80 Compair Crescent, Ipswich, Suffolk, United Kingdom, IP2 0EH.  
 Imogen Cook is the Company Director and we have been in business since 2017. The Freedom Geek specialises in helping small business owners and startup entrepreneurs find (and work with) smart virtual assistants from the Philippines.
2. Who are these Terms for and what do they do?
2.1 All our work, products, and services are covered by these Terms
These Terms should be read alongside any booking or application form, product or download description, or payment form. The service or product that we are providing will determine which of these Terms is relevant.

These Terms describe how we do business in the clearest way possible – what you get, how to pay, and who needs to do what. Any changes or updates can only be agreed in writing by the Company Director.
2.2 Defined words and expressions
Some words have special meanings in these Terms, and they are set out in clause Definitions. We often signal where a word is being used as defined by starting it with a capital letter, but we have not done that where it would make the Terms look too odd. So “we”, “you”, and “including” are not capitalised but always have the defined meaning.
3. Confidentiality and data privacy
3.1 Confidentiality of your information
We will only use or disclose your confidential information as is required to perform the services requested by you or where we are required to disclose it by law. We will keep some confidential information after the completion of a service to keep a record of what we did for you.
3.2 EU Data Law and GDPR
We acknowledge our obligations with respect to personal data under EU Data Law. We are normally acting as the ‘data controller’ of personal data that we process, and we implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure processing is performed in accordance with GDPR.

Where your project requires us to act as a ‘processor’ of personal data on your behalf, we shall enter into a further agreement with you covering the specific requirements of GDPR Article 28.
3.3 Cooperation
We and you will each cooperate with the other to provide reasonable assistance in complying with our respective EU Data Law obligations in connection with services.
3.4 Data Privacy Policy
Our Data Privacy Policy is available on our website here.
