Privacy Policy

UPDATED: February 22, 2022


Secret Weapon Studios Inc. is the owner of this website (the “Website”). “You” and “your” refers to you, as a visitor to the Website and user of the Service (as defined below). A “user” is someone who accesses or in any way uses the Service. “We,” “us,” and “our” refers to Secret Weapon Studios Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates.

This online privacy notice discloses our information practices for this Website, including what type of personal identifiable information is requested in order to use the Service, how the information is used, and with whom the information is shared.

Secret Weapon Studios operates a service to facilitate connecting filmmakers (“Clients”) with qualified and experienced film crew professionals and vendors (“Crew Members”) in various locations. We provide a database of Crew Members with experience in a variety of different film production areas.

In general, you can visit the Website without disclosing any personal information. We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us.

We will need personal information to provide our Service to Crew Members and Clients (collectively, “Users”). For example, to match a Crew Member with a Client for a particular job, we may need to know the Crew Member’s and Client’s name, location/address, e-mail address, work history, experience, credentials, and credit card details. It is our intent to inform you before we collect personal information. If you tell us that you do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes, however you may no longer be able to use the Service.

Personal Information That May Be Collected

In order to use the Service, we will request a User to provide certain personal identifying information, which may include: name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, work history, credentials, work experience, and credit card number. This information is requested at the time you register your account, and we only collect information that you choose to provide. We may request additional information necessary to establish and maintain User accounts. If your personal information has changed, please log in to your account at the Website and update any information that has changed.

We do not sell products or services for purchase by children, and will not collect or post information from anyone under the age of 18.

Our Website may contain links to other websites. Secret Weapon Studios is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those other websites.

Uses Made of the Information

Without your prior consent, Secret Weapon Studios will not use your personal identifiable information for any purpose other than that for which it is submitted. We use personal identifiable information to reply to provide the Service to Users, to respond to inquiries, handle complaints, provide operational notices and in program record-keeping.

Secret Weapon Studios stores the information provided by Users. This information is used to support User interaction with the Website; to deliver the Service to our Users; and/or to contact Users about other Secret Weapon Studios services.

Disclosure of Information

Secret Weapon Studios shares your personal information within its corporate organization, and may transfer the information to countries in the world where Secret Weapon Studios conducts business.

Secret Weapon Studios also shares Crew Member information with Clients, and Client information with Crew Members, in order to provide the Service to our Users. We only share such information when we believe, in our discretion, that there may be a good match between a Crew Member and Client for a particular job request. By using our Service, you expressly consent to such disclosures of information, as they are essential to our Service.

Circumstances may arise where for business reasons, Secret Weapon Studios decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize its businesses in the United States or some other country. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal identifying information to prospective or actual purchasers, and/or receiving such information from sellers. It is our practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions. Also, in the event Secret Weapon Studios is acquired, User information will be one of the transferred assets.

Secret Weapon Studios engages other companies and individuals to perform business functions on our behalf. These persons are provided with personal identifying information required to perform their functions, but are prohibited by contract from using the information for other purposes. These persons engage in a variety of functions which include, but are not limited to, coordinating matches between Clients and Crew Members, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments and providing other customer services.

Secret Weapon Studios reserves the right to disclose to third parties personal information about Users for marketing analysis; however, any information disclosed will be in the form of aggregate data that does not describe or identify an individual User.

Under certain circumstances, personal information may be subject to disclosure pursuant to a judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants or orders.

Use of Computer Tracking Technologies

The Website is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by Users. Through website access logs, we collect certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff to provide better services to Users and may also be provided to others, but, again, the statistics contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.

Secret Weapon Studios, or its third party vendors, collects non-identifiable and personal information through the use of various technologies, including “cookies”. A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier that a website can transfer to a visitor’s hard drive through the visitor’s browser. Cookies may be sent by Secret Weapon Studios or its third party vendors.

Online tracking technology enables website operators to collect personal information about consumers as they move across websites and other online services. Most browsers incorporate “do not track” (DNT) features in their privacy settings. When enabled, a DNT signal or request informs a website operator that the visitor does not wish to be tracked online. The Website is currently designed only for tracking movement within the Website. Secret Weapon Studios does not honor DNT requests, and does not treat visitors who make DNT requests differently from visitors who do not make DNT requests. The Website also does not differentiate between visitors who make DNT requests and visitors who do not make such requests, when it comes to the collection or usage of personal information. There are no third parties that conduct online tracking on the Website. We use third-party analytics services to track non-identifying site usage data on the Website.

Information Security

We employ physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. Billing and payment data is encrypted whenever transmitted or received online. Personal information is accessible only by staff designated to handle online requests or complaints. All Secret Weapon Studios agents and contractors with access to personal information on the Website are also bound to adhere to our security standards.

We will exercise all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of Users’ personal information. However, transmissions protected by industry standard security technology and implemented by human beings cannot be made absolutely secure. Consequently, we are not liable for unauthorized disclosure of personal information due to no fault of Secret Weapon Studios, including, but not limited to, errors in transmission and unauthorized acts of our staff and/or third parties.

Terms of Service

If you choose to use the Service as either a Client or Crew Member, your action is hereby deemed acceptance of our information handling practices described in this policy statement. Any dispute over privacy between you and Secret Weapon Studios is subject to the provisions of this notice and to our Terms of Service, which can be read at

Special Provisions for European Union Residents

The provisions in this section apply to users who are individuals residing in a European Union country (“EU Residents”). The General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, is a European Union regulation that governs the relationship between Secret Weapon Studios and EU Residents. Under the GDPR, Secret Weapon Studios is considered to be a “data controller.” This means that Secret Weapon Studios determines how and why personal data is processed.

In the course of providing the Service, Secret Weapon Studios may collect certain identifying personal data about EU Residents, including name, identification number, location data, online identifier, photographs, videos, etc. In this section of the Privacy Policy, any such personal data that can be used to identify a specific person will be called “Personal Data.” As an EU Resident, you have the following rights, which we call Data Access Rights:

  • You have the right to information about the processing of your Personal Data, such as the purposes, the categories of Personal Data, recipients, etc.
  • You have the right to obtain a copy, in electronic format, of any Personal Data concerning you that we hold.
  • You have the right to be forgotten. This means that you have the right to have Secret Weapon Studios erase your Personal Data. You also have the right to have Secret Weapon Studios stop any further dissemination of your Personal Data. If Personal Data was collected when you were a minor, we are obligated to delete it upon your request. However, Secret Weapon Studios has the right to maintain your Personal Data in the following cases:

(a)   If the Personal Data we hold is needed to exercise the right of freedom of expression;

(b)  If we have a legal obligation to keep your Personal Data;

(c)   If we need to maintain your Personal Data for reasons of public interest, such as public health, scientific, statistical, or historical research purposes; or

(d)  If your Personal Data has undergone an appropriate process of anonymization.

  • You have the right to object to the processing of your Personal Data for specific reasons. In such a case, Secret Weapon Studios will stop processing your Personal Data unless we need to process the Personal Data for reasons that override your rights and freedoms, or if we need the data for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
  • You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes.

To exercise any of your Data Access Rights, please contact Secret Weapon Studios at Please note that there is no charge for exercising any of your Data Rights. However, if we determine that requests are unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive nature, we have the right to charge a reasonable fee or refuse to act.

In addition to your Data Access Rights, the GDPR also grants you a Data Portability Right. This is the right to have us transmit your Personal Data to another organization in a structured, machine-readable format.
