Introduction

Last revised on 5th Aug, 2016

We are an online social network platform for media personnel & professionals.

FilmFactory.in’s mission is to connect the world’s media professionals to allow them to be more productive and successful. Our registered users share their professional identities, engage with their network, exchange knowledge, post and view relevant content, and find business and career opportunities. Content on some of our services is also visible to unregistered users ie visitors.

We protect your personal information using industry-standard safeguards. We may share your information with your consent or as required by law, and we will always let you know when we make significant changes to this Privacy Policy.

Maintaining your trust is our top priority, so we adhere to the following principles to protect your privacy:

  • We protect your personal information and will only provide it to third parties:
    1. with your consent;
    2. where it is necessary to carry out your instructions;
    3. as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you;
    4. when we reasonably believe it is required by law, summons or other legal process;
    5. as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of FilmFactory.in, our registered users and visitors, and the public.
  • We have implemented appropriate security safeguards designed to protect your information in accordance with industry standards.

This Privacy Policy applies to FilmFactory.in and the FilmFactory.in Careers, the advertising platform and all other FilmFactory.in websites, applications, and other products and services (collectively the “Services”). We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time, and if we make material changes to it, we will provide notice through our Service, or by other means so that you may review the changes before you continue to use our Services. If you object to any changes, you may close your account. Continuing to use our Services after we publish or communicate a notice about any changes to this Privacy Policy means that you are consenting to the changes.

1. What information we collect

1.1. Data Controllers

Our Privacy Policy applies to any registered user or visitor. We collect information when you use our Services to offer you a personalized and relevant experience, including growing your network and enabling business opportunities.

If you have any concern about providing information to us or having such information displayed on our Services or otherwise used in any manner permitted in this Privacy Policy and the User Agreement, you should not become a registered user, visit our websites, or otherwise use our Services. If you have already registered, you can close your accounts (e.g., FilmFactory.in, FilmFactory.in Careers).

We collect your personal information in the following ways:

1.2. Registration

When you create an account with us, we collect information (including your name, email address, and password).

To create an account on FilmFactory.in, you must provide us with at least your name, email address and/or mobile number, and a password and agree to our User Agreement and this Privacy Policy, which governs how we treat your information. You may provide additional information during the registration flow to help you build your profile and to provide you more customized services (for example: profile pages, updates, content, ads and career opportunities). You understand that, by creating an account, we and others will be able to identify you by your FilmFactory.in profile.

We also provide the option to register for a FilmFactory.in Careers account, for which you must provide at least your name, email address and/or mobile number, and a password.

1.3. Profile Information

We collect information when you fill out a profile. A complete FilmFactory.in profile that includes professional details – like your job title, education, and professional skills – helps you get found by other people for opportunities.

After you create an account, you may provide additional information on your FilmFactory.in profile, such as descriptions of your skills, professional experience, and educational background. You can list honors, awards, professional affiliations, registered userships, companies or individuals that you follow, and other information including content. Subject to the settings you choose, your connections may provide recommendations of you. Providing additional information enables you to derive more benefit from our Services by helping you express your professional identity; find other professionals, opportunities, and information; and help employers and business opportunities find you. It also enables us to serve you ads and other relevant content on and off of our Services.

1.4. Customer Service

We collect information when you contact us for customer support.

When you contact our customer support services, we may have to access your Mails, Communities and other contributions to our Services and collect the information we need to categorize your question, respond to it, and, if applicable, investigate any breach of our User Agreement or this Privacy Policy. We also use this information to track potential problems and trends and customize our support responses to better serve you. We do not use this information for advertising.

1.5. Using the FilmFactory.in Sites and Applications

We collect information when you visit our Services (including, FilmFactory.in, FilmFactory.in Careers), and interact with ads on and off our Services.

We collect information when you use (whether as a registered user or a visitor) our websites or other Services. For example, we collect information when you view or click on ads on and off our Services, perform a search, join and participate in communities, participate in polls, apply to jobs through our Services. If you are logged in on FilmFactory.in, or any other Service or one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage information and the log data described in Section 1.7 of this policy, such as your IP address, will be associated by us with your account.

1.8. Other

Our Services are a dynamic, innovative environment, which means we are always seeking to improve the Services we offer you. We often introduce new features, some of which may result in the collection of new information. Furthermore, new partnerships or corporate acquisitions may result in new features, and we may potentially collect new types of information. If we start collecting substantially new types of personal information and materially change how we handle your data, we will modify this Privacy Policy and notify you.

2. How we use your personal information

2.1. Consent to FilmFactory.in Processing Information About You

You agree that information you provide on your profile can be seen by others and used by us as described in this Privacy Policy and our User Agreement.

By providing personal information to us when you create or update your account and profile, you are expressly and voluntarily accepting the terms and conditions of our User Agreement and freely accepting and agreeing to our processing of your personal information in ways set out by this Privacy Policy. Supplying to us any information deemed “sensitive” by applicable law is entirely voluntary on your part. You can withdraw or modify your consent to our collection and processing of the information you provide at any time, in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy and the User Agreement, by changing your account settings or your profile on FilmFactory.in or by closing your FilmFactory.in.

2.2. FilmFactory.in Communications

We communicate with you using FilmFactory.in messaging, email, and other ways available to us. We may send you messages relating to the availability of the Services, security, or other service-related issues. We also may send promotional messages to your FilmFactory.in inbox. You can change your email settings at any time.

We communicate with you through email, notices posted on the FilmFactory.in websites, messages to your FilmFactory.in inbox, and other means available through the Services, including mobile text messages and push notifications. Please be aware that you cannot opt out of receiving service messages from us.

2.3. User Communications

With certain communications you send on our Services, the recipient can see your name, email address, and some network information.

Many communications that you initiate through our Services (for example, an invitation sent to a non-Registered users) will list your name and primary email address in message. Messages you initiate may also provide the recipient with aggregate information about your network (for example, how many people are in your network). Once you have connected with an individual, regardless of who sent the invitation, your contact information will be shared with that individual.

2.4. Service Development; Customized Experience

We use the information and content you provide to us to conduct research and development and to customize your experience and try to make it relevant and useful to you.

We use information and content that you and other registered users provide to us to conduct research and development for the improvement of our Services in order to provide you and other registered users and visitors with a better, more intuitive experience and drive registered usership growth and engagement on our Services and to help connect professionals to economic opportunity.

We also customize your experience and the experiences of others on our Services. We try to show you content, such as news that is relevant to you, your industry, or your profession. We also use registered users information and content for invitations and communications promoting our Services that are personalized to the recipient.

2.5. Sharing Information with Third Parties

Any information you put on your profile and any content you post on FilmFactory.in may be seen by others.

We don’t provide any of your non-public information (like your email address) to third parties without your consent, unless required by law.

Other people may find your FilmFactory.in profile information through search engines.

We offer a “public profile” feature that allows you as a registered user to publish portions of your professional profile to the public Internet. This public profile will be indexed and displayed through public search engines when someone searches for your name. You may choose the parts of your profile that search engines index or completely opt out of this feature in your FilmFactory.in account settings. However, third-party search engines may not automatically update their caches, which may contain old public profile information. Unless you delete them, your profiles on FilmFactory.in are always viewable on the respective Services.

The visibility of your professional profile to other registered users depends on your degree of connection with the viewing registered user, the subscriptions they may have, their usage of the Services, access channels and search types (e.g. by name or by keyword). Others have more limited access.

We do not rent or sell personal information that you have not posted on our Services, except as described in this Privacy Policy. We will not disclose personal information that is not published to your profile or generated through engagement with our other services, such as Groups and Company Pages, except to carry out your instructions (for example, to process payment information) or unless we have your separate consent, unless we have a good faith belief that disclosure is permitted by law or is reasonably necessary to: (1) comply with a legal requirement or process, including, but not limited to, civil and criminal summonss, court orders or other compulsory disclosures; (2) enforce this Privacy Policy or our User Agreement; (3) respond to claims of a violation of the rights of third parties; (4) respond to Registered users service inquiries; or (5) protect the rights, property, or safety of FilmFactory.in, our Services, our Registered users, Visitors, or the public. See Section 2.14 for additional details about our compliance with legal requests for information.

2.6. Polls and Surveys

We conduct our own surveys and polls for research. Your participation in surveys or polls is up to you. You may also opt out of getting invitations to participate in surveys.

Polls and Surveys may be conducted by us or registered users. We may follow up with you via Mail regarding your participation unless you have opted out of receiving Mail messages. Your consent to use any personal information for the purposes set forth in the poll or survey will be explicitly requested by the party conducting it.

2.7. Search

Our Services help you search for other professionals, companies, groups, professional content, and jobs.

You can search for registered users, employment opportunities, information about companies, and community content using our Services. For example, you can find registered users with particular expertise or experience, or that you may know from your industry or profession. You can also find employment opportunities and information about companies. You can also find content from Communities. We use personal information from our Services, including users profiles and Company Pages, to inform and refine our search service.

2.8. Groups

You are responsible for any information you post on our Services, and this content will be accessible to others.

If you participate in Communities, share content on your network update stream, or import a blog or other content, you should be aware that any information you choose to disclose using these services can be read, collected, and used by other registered users in these forums, developers, and other third parties, including advertisers. We are not responsible for the information you choose to submit in these forums. Your contributions are typically searchable on our Services and some content may be public and searchable on the Internet if the community owner has not closed it for public discussions. You can identify closed communities next to the name. You can remove your posts at any time. However, others may have copied and used the information that you shared.

2.9. Talent Recruiting, Marketing and Sales Solutions

We offer a premium service to employers and others, which can be used to search for, organize, and communicate with potential candidates or offer business opportunities. In some cases we allow the export of public profile information. You can control how your information is exported by changing which parts of your public profile are accessible to search engines.

We offer customized people-search functionality along with organizational and communications tools (including activity alerts) as part of our talent recruiting, marketing and sales solutions. These services allow subscribers - generally, enterprises and professional organizations - to export limited information from registered users’ public profiles, such as name, headline, current company, current title, and location, in order to effectively manage candidate sourcing. We do not provide email or other contact information to these subscribers. However, if you post that information as part of your profile it will be available to them and others. A recruiter or other such subscriber may also manage and store information it has independently obtained about you outside of our Services, such as a resume, in connection with our platform. Any personal information obtained independently of our Services will not be added by us to your profile and is not under our control but is subject to the policies of our recruiting, marketing or sales solution subscriber. We store such information on behalf of such subscriber who can remove it at any time. We do not further process such information.

2.10. Compliance with Legal Process and Other Disclosures

We may disclose your personal information if compelled by law, summons, or other legal process, or if necessary to enforce our User Agreement.

It is possible that we may need to disclose personal information, profile information, or information about your activities as a registered user or visitor when required by law, summons, or other legal process, whether in the United States, Ireland, or other jurisdictions, or if we have a good faith belief that disclosure is reasonably necessary to (1) investigate, prevent, or take action regarding suspected or actual illegal activities or to assist government enforcement agencies; (2) enforce the User Agreement, investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations, or protect the security or integrity of our Service; or (3) exercise or protect the rights, property, or safety of FilmFactory.in, our Registered users, personnel, or others. We attempt to notify Registered users about legal demands for their personal information when appropriate in our judgment, unless prohibited by law or court order or when the request is an emergency. In light of our principles, we may dispute such demands when we believe, in our discretion, that the requests are overbroad, vague or lack proper authority, but do not commit to challenge every demand.

2.11. Disclosures to Others as the Result of a Change in Control or Sale of FilmFactory.in Corporation

If there is a change in control or sale of all or part of FilmFactory.in, we may share your information with a third party, who will have the right to use that information in line with this Privacy Policy.

We may also disclose your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of the assets of FilmFactory.in, a subsidiary, or division, or as the result of a change in control of the company or one of its affiliates, or in preparation for any of these events. Any third party to which we transfers or sells our assets will have the right to continue to use the personal and other information that you provide to us in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy.

2.12. Service Providers

We may employ third parties to help us with the Services

We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Services (e.g. maintenance, analysis, audit, marketing and development). These third parties have limited access to your information only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated to FilmFactory.in not to disclose or use it for other purposes.

2.13. Data Processing Outside Your Country

We may process your information outside the country where you live.

We may transfer your information and process it outside your country of residence, wherever FilmFactory.in, its affiliates and service providers operate.

3. Your Choices & Obligations

3.1. Rights to Access, Correct, or Delete Your Information, and Closing Your Account

You can change your FilmFactory.in information at any time by editing your profile, deleting content that you have posted, or by closing your account. You can also ask us for additional information we may have about your account.

You have a right to (1) access, modify, correct, or delete your personal information controlled by FilmFactory.in regarding your profile, (2) change or remove your content, and (3) close your account. You can request your personal information that is not viewable on your profile or readily accessible to you (for example, your IP access logs) through FilmFactory.in‘s Help Center. If you close your account(s), your information will generally be removed from the Service within 24 hours. We generally delete closed account information and will de-personalize any logs or other backup information through the deletion process within 30 days of account closure, except as noted below.

Please note: Information you have shared with others (for example, through Mail, network updates, content sharing, or Communities) or that others have copied may also remain visible after you have closed your account or deleted the information from your own profile. Communities content associated with closed accounts will show an unknown user as the source. In addition, you may not be able to access, correct, or eliminate any information about you that other Registered users copied or exported out of our Services, because this information may not be in our control. Your public profile may be displayed in search engine results until the search engine refreshes its cache.

3.2. Data Retention

We keep your information for as long as your account is active or as needed. For example, we may keep certain information even after you close your account if it is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce this agreement.

We retain the personal information you provide while your account is in existence or as needed to provide you services. We may retain your personal information even after you have closed your account if retention is reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, meet regulatory requirements, resolve disputes between Registered users, prevent fraud and abuse, or enforce this Privacy Policy and our User Agreement. We may retain personal information, for a limited period of time, if requested by law enforcement. Our Customer Service may retain information for as long as is necessary to provide support-related reporting and trend analysis only, but we generally delete or de-personalize closed account data consistent with Section 3.1., except in the case of our plugin impression data (i.e., the information that you visited on sites carrying our social plugin, but which you did not click on), which we de-personalize within 7 days (although we do maintain 30 days worth of webserver logs for security, debugging, and site stability purposes only) by creating aggregate data sets that cannot be traced back to individuals.

Please review the changes carefully. If you agree to the changes, simply continue to use our Services.

We have implemented security safeguards designed to protect the personal information that you provide in accordance with industry standards.

We also offer secure https access to the FilmFactory.in website. To protect any data you store on our servers, we also regularly monitor our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and we use a tier-one secured-access data center. However, since the Internet is not a 100% secure environment, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. It is your responsibility to protect the security of your login information.
