We may disclose your information to trusted third parties for the purposes set out in this Policy. We require all third parties to have appropriate technical and operational security measures in place to protect your personal data, in line with United Kingdom and EU law on data protection rules. While countries outside the EEA do not always have strong data protection laws, We require all services providers to process your information in a secure manner and in accordance with United Kingdom and EU law on data protection. We utilise standard means under EU law to legitimise data transfers outside the EU.


The data that We collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff maybe engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your order, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL or similar technology. Where We have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone.

You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you (before collecting your data) if We intend to use your data for such purposes or if We intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms We use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at @.

Our site may, from time to time, contain links to and from the websites of our partner networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and that We do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • - Request information about whether We hold personal information about you, and, if so, what that information is and why We are holding/using it.
  • - Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information We hold about you and to check that We are lawfully processing it.
  • - Request correction of the personal information that We hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information We hold about you corrected.
  • - Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • - Object to processing of your personal information where We are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where We are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • - Object to automated decision-making including profiling, that is not to be subject of any automated decision-making by us using your personal information or profiling of you.
  • - Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • - Request transfer of your personal information in an electronic and structured form to you or to another party (commonly known as a right to "data portability"). This enables you to take your data from us in an electronically useable format and to be able to transfer your data to another party in an electronically useable format.
  • - Withdraw consent. In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once We have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, We will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless We have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

If you want to exercise any of these rights, then please email our DPO at @ or our general info account at @ or contact our DPO by post at FilmDoo Limited, ARK Coworking, 237 Pentonville Road, Kings Cross, London N1 9NG, United Kingdom.


You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, We may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, We may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.


Your use of FilmDoo, and any disputes arising from it, is subject to this Policy and all of its dispute resolution provisions including arbitration, limitation on damages and choice of law. We reserve the right to change our Policy at any time. Non-material changes and clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within thirty (30) days of their posting on this site. If We make changes, We will post them and will indicate at the top of this page the Policy's new effective date. If We make material changes to this Policy, We will notify you here, by email, or through notice on our home page. We encourage you to refer to this Policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current Policy. Unless stated otherwise, our current Policy applies to all information that We have about you and your account.
