There are many different ways you can use our services – to search for and share information, to communicate with other people or to create new content. When you share information with us, we can make those services even better – to show you more relevant search results and ads, to help you connect with people or make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we’re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy.
- What information we collect and why we collect it.
- How we use that information.
- The choices we offer, including how to access and update information.
We’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible, but if you’re not familiar with terms like cookies, IP addresses, pixel tags and browsers, then read about these key terms first. Your privacy matters to Filmstacker so whether you are new to Filmstacker or a long-time user, please do take the time to get to know our practices – and if you have any questions contact us.
Information we collect
We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you will find most useful, the people who matter most to you online, or which Filmstacker videos you might like.
We collect information in the following ways:
Information you give us. For example, many of our services require you to sign up for a Filmstacker Account. When you do, we’ll ask for personal information, like your name, email address, telephone number or credit card to store with your account. If you want to take full advantage of the sharing features we offer, we might also ask you to create a publicly visible Filmstacker Profile, which may include your name and photo.
Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you watch a video on Filmstacker, visit a website that uses our advertising services, or view and interact with our ads and content. This information includes:
We collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). Filmstacker may associate your device identifiers or phone numbers with your Filmstacker Account.
When you use our services or view content provided by Filmstacker, we automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This includes:
- Details of how you used our service, such as your search queries.
- Telephony log information like your phone number, calling-party number, forwarding numbers, time and date of calls, duration of calls, SMS routing information and types of calls.
- Internet Protocol Address.
- Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.
- Cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Filmstacker Account.
When you use Filmstacker services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS,and other sensors that may, for example, provide Filmstacker with information on nearby devices, Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.
Unique application numbers
Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to Filmstacker when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates.
We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.
Cookies and similar technologies We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a Filmstacker service, and this may include using cookies or other similar technologies to identify your browser or device. We also use these technologies to collect and store information when you interact with services we offer to our partners, such as advertising services or Filmstacker features that may appear on other sites. Our Filmstacker Analytics product helps businesses and site owners analyze the traffic to their websites and apps.

They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms.

This helps us to improve the way our websites work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

How we use information we collect
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Filmstacker and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like giving you more relevant search results and ads.
We may use the name you provide for your Filmstacker Profile across all of the services we offer that require a Filmstacker Account. In addition, we may replace past names associated with your Filmstacker Account so that you are represented consistently across all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your publicly visible Filmstacker Profile information, such as your name and photo.
If you have a Filmstacker Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on Filmstacker or on third-party applications connected to your Filmstacker Account (such as +1’s, reviews you write and comments you post) in our services, including displaying in ads and other commercial contexts. We will respect the choices you make to limit sharing or visibility settings in your Filmstacker Account.
When you contact Filmstacker, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, to improve the overall quality of our services. One of the products we use to do this on our own services is Filmstacker Analytics. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. When showing you tailored ads, we will not associate an identifier from cookies or similar technologies with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation or health.
Filmstacker processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
Transparency and choice
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
Review clip and project settings to decide what videos you’ve watched on Filmstacker or past searches, you would like saved with your account when you use Filmstacker services. Review certain types of information tied to your Filmstacker Account by using Filmstacker Dashboard. You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by us. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.
Information you share
Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that when you share information publicly, it may be indexable by search engines, including Filmstacker. Our services provide you with different options on sharing and removing your content.

We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Filmstacker when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
With Domain Administrators
What is a domain administrator? Members of this group have full control of the domain. By default, this group is a member of the Administrators group on all domain controllers, all domain workstations, and all domain member servers at the time they are joined to the domain. By default, the Administrator account is a member of this group.
If your Filmstacker Account is managed for you by a domain administrator then your domain administrator and resellers who provide user support to your organization will have access to your Filmstacker Account information (including your email and other data). Your domain administrator may be able to:
- View statistics regarding your account, like statistics regarding applications you install.
- Change your account password.
- Suspend or terminate your account access.
- Access or retain information stored as part of your account.
- Receive your account information in order to satisfy applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
- Restrict your ability to delete or edit information or privacy settings.
Our Business Clients. We may disclose Personal Data to our clients as necessary in the course of providing them a custom Filmstacker “widget” or interface for use on their site.
Retention of personal data
Duration. We reserve the right to retain any Personal Data as long as the Personal Data are needed to: (i) fulfill the purposes that are described in Section “Information We Share”3 (The Purposes For Which We Use Personal Data), and (ii) comply with applicable law. We will take all reasonable steps to destroy, or erase from our systems, all Personal Data which is no longer required for the purposes for which the Personal Data was collected.
Who has access. Only people with a ‘true need to know’ have access to the information. Those people with access are vetted to ensure they handle the information appropriately.
