FiLMiC Inc. Privacy Policy

We are strongly committed to letting you know how we will collect and use your personal information. The policies below are applicable to data and information collected when you use the FiLMiC, Inc. network of websites, including www.filmicpro.com (including any versions optimized for viewing on a wireless or tablet device); all email newsletters published or distributed by FiLMiC, Inc.; all apps published by FiLMiC, Inc., including the “FiLMiC Pro” app; and all other interactive features and communications provided by FiLMiC, Inc. (“App”), however, accessed and/or used, that are operated by us, made available by us (collectively “FiLMiC” or “we”, “us”, or “our”).

We have established this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to let you know the kinds of personal information we may gather during your use of this App, why we gather your information, what we use your personal information for, when we might disclose your personal information, and how you can manage your personal information.

Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered online through our App. It does not apply to information that you may submit to us offline or by companies or organizations to which we may link or who may link to us. By using our App, you are accepting the practices described in our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not use the App.

We reserve the right to modify or amend the terms of our Privacy Policy from time to time without notice. Your continued use of our App following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes. If we intend to apply the modifications or amendments to this Privacy Policy retroactively or to personal information already in our possession, we will provide you with notice of the modifications or amendments.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or don’t see your concerns addressed here, you should contact us by email at info@filmicpro.com

What Information About Me Is Collected and Stored? We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the App, personal information, and non-personal information. Personal information is information that you supply to us, as described more fully below, i.e., when you use our Services, obtain a subscription, complete a survey, register on the App, upload content, participate in a community, or provide your e-mail address.

Personal information is any information that can individually identify you and includes, among other things, your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, credit card, billing, and contact information. Non-personal information includes information that does not personally identify you, but it may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the App, and the Internet.

Personal Information As a general matter, you can browse the App without submitting your personal information to us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which you may supply us or our agents with your personal information. The following lists the most common ways in which we may collect your personal information.

  • Registration for an account on the App
  • Registration for an event sponsored by FiLMiC
  • Profile information that You provide for Your user profile
  • Uploading Content to the App
  • Submitting an application to work at FiLMiC
  • Sign up to receive alerts or other information via email, text, or instant message from FiLMiC
  • App related communications, e.g. account verification; technical notification
  • Submission of content or other data and information on any part of the App that permits it
  • Any other place on the App where you knowingly volunteer personal information

Non-Personal Information In addition, when you interact with the App, we may collect certain information that does not identify you individually and our servers may automatically keep an activity log of your use of our App (“Non-Personal Information”). Generally, we collect and store the following categories of Non-Personal Information:

  • Non-identifiable demographic data such as age, gender, and five-digit zip code as part of collecting personal information
  • Device information about your computer, browser, mobile device, or other devices that you use to access the App. This information may include IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information.
  • Analytics and usage information about your use of the App.
  • Additional “traffic data” and log files such as time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, and referring App addresses.
  • Other information regarding your use of the App.

Collection of Your Source IP Address/Location Information We may collect and store location information about you on the App and associated with your account that you volunteer on the App or enable through the App or your device. We will not collect any location information that you do not volunteer or enable. We will delete any location information that you request is deleted. We do collect and store your device’s source IP address which may disclose the location of your device at the time you access the App.

Collection of Personal Information From or Through Social Media Sites or Using Your Social Media Logon When you interact with any Service Provider page or an account on a social media platform, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, YouTube, or Pinterest, we may collect the personal information that you make available to us on that page or account including your account ID or “handle.”

However, we will comply with the privacy policies of the corresponding social media platform and we will only collect and store such personal information that we are permitted to collect by these social media platforms. If you publish your social media profile on our Service, we may collect personal information that you make available as part of that profile.

Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies We do not use any cookies for any purpose, including “session” cookies, “persistent” cookies, flash cookies, web storage, web beacons, or other technology that tracks you. We may also use certain technologies to monitor traffic, improve the Apps, and make it easier and/or relevant for your use, but none of these technologies track you or identify you.

We do not deliver advertising on or through the App. If you are concerned about mobile app tracking by advertising networks, you can learn about your options to opt-out of mobile app tracking by certain advertising networks through your device settings.

Who Do We Provide Your Information To? Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not disclose information about your Personal Information collected online to any companies not part of FiLMiC or its parent, subsidiaries, or related entities.

Third-Party Agents We have third party agents, subsidiaries, affiliates, and partners that perform functions on our behalf, such as hosting, billing, push notifications, storage, bandwidth, content management tools, analytics, customer service, fraud protection, etc.

These entities have access to the Personal Information needed to perform their functions and are contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of that Personal Information. They are restricted from using, selling, distributing, or altering this data in any way other than to provide the requested services to the App.

Emergency Situations We may also use or disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or the App; (b) protect and defend our rights or property, the App or our users, and (c) act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our affiliates, agents, or the users of the App or the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and FiLMiC for fraud protection.

What Steps Are Taken To Keep Personal Information Secure? We are concerned about ensuring the security of your Personal Information. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your device to our servers. Personal Information collected by our App is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public.

Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose your Personal Information to you. Please understand, however, that while we try our best to safeguard your Personal Information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

How Can We Transfer Your Personal Information? Your information collected through the App may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which FiLMiC, its Clients, Affiliates, or service providers maintain facilities. FiLMiC, its Clients, Affiliates, or service providers may transfer information that we collect about you, including personal information across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world.

If you are located in the United States or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from US law, please note that we may transfer information, including personal information, to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction.

Wherever your personal information is transferred, stored, or processed by FiLMiC, FiLMiC will take reasonable steps to safeguard the privacy of your personal information. By registering for and using the App you consent to the transfer of information to the US or to any other country in which FiLMiC, its Clients, Affiliates or service providers maintain facilities and the use and disclosure of information about you as described in this Privacy Policy.

How Long Do We Keep Your Information? Following termination or deactivation of your account, FiLMiC, its Clients, Affiliates, or its service providers may retain information (including your profile information) and user Content for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, and/or audit purposes. If you have any questions about the termination or deactivation of your account, please contact us directly at info@filmicpro.com.

What Happens When I Link To or From Another App? This App may contain links to other Apps operated by third parties. Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy for FiLMiC do not apply to information gathered through these other Apps. We are not responsible for the actions and privacy policies of third parties and other Apps.

Governing Law This App is published in the United States. We attempt to protect the Personal Information of all users of our App and we attempt to comply with local data protection and consumer rights laws to the extent they may apply to the FiLMiC services, but our App is located and targeted to United States citizens and our policies are directed at compliance with those laws.

If you are uncertain whether this privacy policy conflicts with the applicable local privacy laws where you are located, you should not submit your Personal Information to FiLMiC.

Assignment We may change our ownership or corporate entity while providing the App. We may also sell certain assets associated with the App. As a result, please be aware that in such an event we may transfer some or all of your information to an entity acquiring all or part of our assets or to another entity with which we have merged.

Under such circumstances we would, to the extent possible, require the acquiring party to follow the practices described in this Privacy Policy, as it may be amended from time to time. Nevertheless, we cannot promise that an acquiring entity or the merged entity will have the same privacy practices or treat your information the same as described in this Privacy Policy.

Changes to This Policy As our App continues to develop, we may add new services and features to our App. In the event that these additions affect our Privacy Policy, this document will be updated appropriately. We will post those changes prominently so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone.

We do, however, recommend that you read this Privacy Policy each time you use our App in case you missed our notice of changes to the Privacy Policy. We will not, however, materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of Personal Information we have previously collected from you without your express consent.

What Are Your Choices and How Do You Opt-Out? We believe you should have choices about the collection, use, and sharing of your information. Although you cannot opt-out of all data collection when you visit our Apps, you can limit the collection, use, and sharing of your personally identifiable information.
