How will we use your data?

Our Company collects your data so that we can:

  • Provide you with billing and payment information and receipts. When Our Company processes your payment, it may send your data to, and also use the resulting information from, credit reference agencies to prevent fraudulent purchases.

  • Follow-up with feedback regarding our services.

  • Reach out in the future to determine if you would like to use our services again.

 

How do we store your data?

Our Company securely stores the majority of your data using the Microsoft 365 Cloud. This includes email, enquiries via website, production notes and interviews. For more information on physical data storage locations please see Microsoft’s 365 data storage site:
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/enterprise/o365-data-locations?view=o365-worldwide&ms.officeurl=datamaps

Film production may require customer data such as film and audio to be stored on unencrypted media such as hard disks and memory storage cards. These storage media will be relinquished to the client for a nominal cost-recovery fee upon completion of the project, or will be securely wiped prior to reuse to minimize environmental impact.

Our Company will keep your contact details and project notes on file indefinitely in order to facilitate future projects with you. If you do not wish for us to retain particular information then we will delete requested information upon request. For tax purposes we must keep basic information such as billing contact and payment details for up to ten years.

Customers may request us to immediately delete all project files at any time after final payment, upon which time we will provide written notice that the request has been fulfilled. By default, our Company will keep your finished project files in an encrypted format for one year, to serve as a backup. Once this time period has expired, we will delete your data by securely wiping it from our cloud backup.
