Blue Gecko Networks Privacy Policy

Your confidentiality is important to us.

BlueGeckoNetwork.com is firmly committed to the privacy of its members.


The information contained within the member profile you register is solely used to match posted information with potential professionals or projects.  Employer and professional contact information is NEVER released to third parties of any kind.  Professional profiles are displayed in search results listings WITHOUT contact information.  Professional contact information is only revealed to employers AFTER professionals proactively submit bids and proposals to projects.  Employer contact information is never revealed to professionals.

Registered BlueGeckoNetwork.com employers and professionals can be assured that none of the information submitted to BlueGeckoNetwork.com will ever be sold or redistributed without express consent.

Information Collection and Use

BlueGeckoNetwork.com is a Web-based marketplace that directly connects businesses with freelancers.  BlueGeckoNetwork.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this website.  We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.  BlueGeckoNetwork.com will not provide any personally identifying information on individual members to any third party, except in connection with possible employment, with the professional's consent, as explained below.

All registered BlueGeckoNetwork.com members click the "I AGREE" checkbox on the Registration form to agree to the BlueGeckoNetwork.com Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.  Registered professionals on BlueGeckoNetwork.com agree that some profile information is made accessible to employers who conduct searches of the BlueGeckoNetwork.com database.  This information includes professionals' skills, experience, education level, compensation, work availability, region, self-evaluation, and member statistics.  Such information does not identify the specificity of the individual member.

BlueGeckoNetwork.com will contact the professionals who match employer postings via a Project Notification email.  At that point, the professional has the option to submit a bid and proposal for the project and disclose his/her personal information (i.e. name, address and phone number) to the potential employer.  When a professional submits a bid and proposal for a project, the employer receives the information in his/her employer account on BlueGeckoNetwork.com and by email.  The professional's contact information is only revealed to the employer AFTER he/she submits a bid and proposal for the project.


To be a registered BlueGeckoNetwork.com member, employers and professionals must first complete the registration form.  During registration, employers and professionals are required to provide their contact information (i.e. name, address, phone number and email address).  This information is used to match professional profiles with employer project requirements.  Any and all information provided will not be given/sold to third parties and is completely confidential.  The professional's contact information is only revealed to the employer AFTER he/she submits a bid and proposal for the project.  Employer contact information is never revealed to professionals.


Cookies are text files that websites use to capture information about the members using their sites.  BlueGeckoNetwork.com uses cookies to recognize the information registered professionals and employers provide on our website.  (For example, a registered member logs out of BlueGeckoNetwork.com.  The member returns to BlueGeckoNetwork.com to log into the website.  The member's username already appears in the login form, and the member is only required to enter their password to login.)  BlueGeckoNetwork.com members must have cookies enabled on their browser(s).  Cookie preferences are set within each browser's Internet options/preferences.

Should BlueGeckoNetwork.com allow advertisers on the website, some of these advertisers may use cookies.  BlueGeckoNetwork.com will have no access to or control over these cookies.
