Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs)
Great Bear often transfer material that our customers consider sensitive or confidential. We regularly work under Non-Disclosure agreements.
Insurance and damage
In the eyes of insurance companies, the value of recordings made on obsolete analogue and digital formats is undefinable unless documented in a previous transaction.
General insurance cover is therefore unavailable for the tapes we digitise.
Customers send us their material on the basis that Great Bear Analogue and Digital Media will not be liable for any loss or damage to the tapes.
We do recognise, of course, that your tapes are likely to have immense personal value to you. If appropriate, we recommend you acquire Specialist Insurance Cover before sending us your tapes.

Personal visits are very welcome but please call us on 0117 985 0500 before your intended visit to arrange a time.
Please note the Greatbear studio is situated up a flight of stairs and there is no lift. It is therefore inaccessible if you are in a wheelchair or find it difficult to use stairs.
If you require assistance to visit Great Bear, let us know when you plan to arrive and we can arrange to meet you downstairs.
