Privacy Policy

We take your privacy seriously and do not share information with strange people.

Though we do not sell data to third parties, there are instances in which we share data with the Web Series World Cup and partner festivals in support of your work. This privacy policy describes those scenarios and what they mean to you.

Unauthenticated Visitors

Personally identifying information we capture:

If you simply visit this web site, we send usage information to Google Analytics to help us better understand how the site is being used. While we are not trying to collect any personally identifying information, this usage information does contain IP addresses and, of course, is being stored with Google.

We do not track any other information about unauthenticated users unless an unauthenticated user attempts to access a resource they should not. In that situation, we log the IP address and information about the illegal access attempt.

Retention Policy

We retain all information except security audit logs for the lifetime of the site unless you exercise your right to be forgotten.

Data Sharing

As already noted, we do not sell information to third parties. Nevertheless, there are circumstances under which we submit information to third parties because they are providing services to us that require your data. We try to enumerate the information and the third parties here, but it may not be complete.

Google Analytics - Google Analytics is the software we use to analyze web traffic. Any time someone visits a page, your browser will submit information about your page visit to Google Analytics. This is common among most sites on the Internet.

Maling List Software - We may push your information to our mailing list software (Mailchimp) when you sign up for our mailing list. Any emails we send will provide you with a mechanism for unsubscribing. We promise to honor your desire to be unsubscribed.

The Web Series World Cup and Partner Festivals - We share information about our selections, nominees, and winners with the Web Series World Cup to help them manage series rankings. We also share selection information with some partner festivals to help them make direct selections.

We respect your privacy

We use various technologies to track your identity and your interaction with our content while you are on our site. Our goal is to limit the use of this kind of technology to functions that are strictly necessary for the purpose of being a festival attendee, filmmaker, judge, or presenter. You have full control over the few exceptions that are not strictly necessary.

Cookies and Local Storage

We do not use any first-party cookies on this site, though we do use a newer technology called "local storage" to store information about your identity and interaction with our site on your computer. We may use a third-party cookie for analytics tracking and another for your purchases. We do not use third-party cookies for the purposes of advertising or collecting information for use by third-parties.

Use of Essential Cookies/Storage

The primary need for our storage of data on your computer is to track your authentication status and synchronize the purchases stored on the web site, thus enabling you to access the content to which you have access. When you are not authenticated, we also use this technology to track viewing of content in verification of our right to show you that content. On your profile page, you can see the information we store about you and manage it. You do have the right to be forgotten by us, but you will lose access to any purchased content should you exercise this right.

Non-essential Cookies/Storage Preferences

There are two non-essential functions: our use of Google Analytics to help us analyize usage of our web site and our automated watch list tracking. You may turn off one or both non-essential functions. We do ask that you allow these functions as they are used solely for the purposes of bettering this web site and are not used for advertising or sold tracking your beavhior for use by third-parties.
