ScriptBuddy - Screenwriting Software for the Web
Privacy Policy

ScriptBuddy is operated by ScriptBuddy LLC. The following statement details how we respect and protect your privacy when you use ScriptBuddy.

Security of Your Screenplays

The screenplays you write in ScriptBuddy are protected by the password required for you to log into your account. Only you and those people you have given your password to may access your account and read your screenplays. We strongly recommend that you do not give out your password to anyone under any circumstances.

We take every measure possible to ensure that your screenplays are securely stored on the ScriptBuddy server. Only ScriptBuddy administrators have access to the accounts and screenplays on the ScriptBuddy server. ScriptBuddy administrators only exercise their administrative privileges over user accounts when a user emails the ScriptBuddy Help Desk asking for technical assistance. However, at no time does any ScriptBuddy administrator read users' screenplays unless the screenplay author or owner gives written permission to do so. Under no circumstances do we sell, share, or otherwise disclose any part of any user's screenplays.

When you write a screenplay in ScriptBuddy, you automatically own the intellectual property rights to that screenplay. That means, the instant you write your screenplay in ScriptBuddy it is copyrighted to you, even if you do not affix the copyright symbol or other copyright information to it (according to U.S. law).

The screenplays you write using ScriptBuddy are kept secured and private so that only you and the people you give permission to may access them.


Information Collection and Use

When you register for a ScriptBuddy account we ask for your name, address, phone number and email address. This is considered personally identifiable information because it can be used to identify or contact you. We only use this information to contact you with important service announcements, new products or features, and special offers related to ScriptBuddy. For instance, if we make a change in ScriptBuddy's functionality that may affect the way you use it, we may send you an email regarding these changes. Moreover, it's a good idea to have your real name associated with the screenplays you write for the purposes of copyrighting.

Additionally, when you access ScriptBuddy your Web browser automatically sends us information including the type of Web browser you're using, your IP address, and ScriptBuddy cookie information. We record this information in order to track and analyze our Web site traffic. With this information, we are able to make informed decisions when updating ScriptBuddy.
Cookies

A "cookie" is a small piece of data stored on your computer by a Web site to help identify you. ScriptBuddy uses a cookie solely to increase the security of your account. Once you close your browser, the ScriptBuddy cookie simply terminates. If your Web browser rejects the cookie, we regret that you will not be able to use ScriptBuddy due to security risks.

Our advertisers may use cookies on our site. However, we have no access to or control over these cookies.


Information Sharing and Disclosure

ScriptBuddy will not sell any information gathered from you on the ScriptBuddy Web site. We may share summarized and aggregated information about site traffic with our advertisers. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.


Security

We take every precaution to protect your account information and your screenplays both online and off-line. Your account is password-protected and your password is always stored with encryption.


Updating or Correcting Your Information

If the information you have given us in the past changes, you may use the "Account Profile" tab from within your account to make appropriate changes. If you would like your account removed from ScriptBuddy, you can email us such a request at
help@scriptbuddy.com.


Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Homepage so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

In short, the personal information you enter when you create an account stays with ScriptBuddy and is only used to contact you regarding ScriptBuddy. You own all of the rights to the screenplays you create in ScriptBuddy. Nobody else has access to your account or screenplays.
