Privacy Policy

Focus Forward Films, operated by FactualMedia, LLC, values and respects your personal and corporate information. We take your concerns about privacy quite seriously, and seek to take reasonable efforts to protect it. When we collect information, such as your name and email address, we use it to provide you with a response to your inquiry or with information targeted to your needs.

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms of Use posted on this Website, set forth the rules and policies governing your use of this Website. All capitalized terms shall have the same meaning as set forth in the Terms of Use. By using our Website, you agree to accept these policies. We may change this policy from time to time without notice. Therefore we recommend you check back periodically to ensure you are comfortable with our most recent policy. Immediately after we post any changes to this policy, those changes are deemed effective, whether or not you have reviewed them. By using our Website after we post any changes to this policy, you agree to accept those changes.

What information do we collect?
When you request information from Focus Forward Films, we need to know your name, company, telephone number, email address and mailing address. In addition, we may ask you questions about your filmmaking experience. We use this information so that we can send you a response and best tailor that response to you.

We may also automatically collect non-personal or clickstream information from you when you access our Website. This can include, among other things, the type of browser you are using, the address of the Website from which your visit originated, the operating system you are using, the domain name of your Internet service provider, the pages you visit on our Website, and the duration of your visit.

Is your information safe with us?
Except as noted below, we don't share or sell your personal information. As necessary, we may share non-personal information with our trusted third party service providers, such as the corporations that manage or host our Website, to perform services on our behalf. They typically use non-personal, anonymous information—like clickstream information regarding visit duration-that isn't identifiable with a particular visitor to further improve the Website.

The only time when we may share your personal information with a third party outside of Focus Forward Films is in response to a legal process and/or where we (or an enforcement agency) believe your actions may violate applicable laws, or our user agreement, or where we believe your actions threaten the rights, property or safety of our company, its users (or the general public). Focus Forward Films takes steps consistent with commercially reasonable industry standards to assure that any personal information collected from you is secured from loss, misuse or unauthorized access while under our control. Please note that despite our efforts to protect information provided to us, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be lost, disclosed or accessed by accidental circumstances or by the unauthorized acts of others.
