Why does Filmmaker Forum collect private information?

We need your information in order to provide you our services, pay you, get your films out to our partners, answer questions you may have, keep track of all the things happening with your account, provide customer support, collect fees, provide new opportunities, contact you in case of incomplete information, deliver new products and updates and deliver a high quality experience.
What information does Filmmaker Forum collect?

Depending what services or products you would like, we’ll need basic information that might consist of all or part of the following: your name, address, email address, contact phone numbers, credit card information, name(s) of your film(s), year that your film(s) were made, name of the person, group or entity that owns and controls the rights to each film and artwork delivered to Filmmaker Forum, credit/charge card information to collect from you various fees and charges for services and bank account or PayPal account information for deposits of money owed to you from the sale of your films.

From time to time we might also present you with a voluntary survey or questionnaire about our current or possible future services or products. In addition, we might ask for information that will help remind you of your personal user name or password in the event you request retrieval of your user name and/or password.

Filmmaker Forum may also set up a system that allows you to purchase and/or send gift certificates or links to films or other Filmmaker Forum products or other information to any Filmmaker Forum member or to family members, friends or colleagues. To fulfill your request, Filmmaker Forum may require personal information about the person to whom you are sending the product or service, such as their name, physical address, email address, etc. The personal information you provide about that person is used only for the purpose for which it is collected. Neither Filmmaker Forum nor its partners with whom we share that data will use the information collected to market directly to that person.

Filmmaker Forum might also keep track of how certain films are selling at different digital stores, like iTunes, for Filmmaker Forum ranking charts and inclusion in our newsletter or other areas of our website.

If you use a bulletin board or chat room within Filmmaker Forum, you should be aware that any information you share is visible to other users.
