Our new video box enables customers to record their own videos to share with friends and loved ones when the gift arrives. In order to provide this service, we need to record and store videos on behalf of our customers. We take this responsibility very seriously. We will never use submitted videos for marketing purposes unless we are running a specific promotion for which we will get separate consent in line with GDPR. We delete all videos after 90 days. Access to customer videos is restricted to London Sock Company and our fulfilment partner Ingram Micro, no videos will be shared with any other 3rd parties. Only staff who are directly involved in fulfilment of video boxes will ever see recorded videos. Videos are hosted and stored securely on a cloud platform called AddPipe – their service is fully GDPR compliant, more details can be found here: https://addpipe.com/gdpr.
