Welcome to FilmDoo.com, the official website of FilmDoo Ltd (“FilmDoo”). FilmDoo provides a unique independent and world film community and interactive website (the “Site”) providing users with an interactive Website to stream and watch the best independent and world films which is provided under license from third party content providers and distributors (the “Content Providers”). These Terms of Use (the “Terms”) govern your use of the FilmDoo website (the “Website”).

BY REGISTERING FOR, ACCESSING, BROWSING, OR USING THE WEBSITE, YOU ATTEST THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of these Terms, you should not continue to use the Website.

By registering for or using the Website, either through the Website or through signing up using a third party account or application such as Facebook, you confirm that you are 18 years of age or more, that any information you submit to FilmDoo is true, accurate and complete, and that you agree to the terms and conditions of these Terms, our Privacy Policy and our Intellectual Property Policy.

There are two ways in which you may access movies ("Video Content") via the Website: i) through third party affiliates (“Affiliates”) or ii) through streaming. The details of these two types of services (each a "Service", collectively the "Services") are set out below:

AFFILIATES - One way of watching the Video Content is through a number of our Affiliates depending on where you are based. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the availability of any third party websites or material you access through the Website. We do not endorse, and shall not be held responsible or liable for, any content, advertising, products or services on or available from such third party websites or material. Any dealings between you and any third party advertisers or merchants found on or via the Website, including payment for and delivery of products, services and any other terms, conditions, warranties or representations associated with such dealings, are made between you and the relevant advertiser or merchant. Therefore, we are not responsible or liable for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as the result of any such dealings. Where purchasing goods or services directly from such Affiliates, please ensure you read the relevant terms and conditions or terms of use before entering into any transaction.

STREAMING

From time to time we may make Video Content available to you free of charge ("Free Content"). The terms and conditions applicable to such Free Content will be notified to you at the time.

We may automatically remove or render unplayable any Video Content from your Compatible Devices upon expiry of the applicable viewing period.

We may modify, replace or withdraw the Video Content available on the Website as well as the types of Compatible Devices, from time to time. We make no representation as to the availability of certain Video Content, the amount of Video Content available on the Website or the suitability of a particular device to access or view Video Content. We may discontinue, modify or suspend all or part of our Services at any time without notice and without any liability to you whatsoever.

Sometimes, for reasons outside our control, you may be unable to download or stream purchased Video Content or your downloading/streaming of Video Content may be interrupted. In such event, you should contact our customer services team at: info@filmdoo.com

The availability of Video Content to watch will change from time to time, and from country to country. The quality of the display of the Video Content may vary from computer to computer, and device to device, and may be affected by a variety of factors, such as your location, the bandwidth available through and/or speed of your Internet connection. You are responsible for all Internet access charges. Please check with your Internet provider for information on possible Internet data usage charges. FilmDoo makes no representations or warranties about the quality of your watching experience on your display. The time it takes to begin watching Video Content will vary based on a number of factors, including your location, available bandwidth at the time, the Video Content you have selected and the configuration of your device.
