Why do you need my date of birth when I set up an Into Film account?

Some of the content on the Into Film sites is only appropriate for certain age groups (e.g. booking tickets for the Into Film Festival is restricted to adults only) so we need your date of birth to verify your age. We do not use this information for any other purpose.

Why do you need my mobile number when I set up an Into Film account?

We may need to contact you on your mobile if any notable problems arise with an Into Film event or service you have signed up to. (e.g. an Into Film Festival event you have booked or an Into Film Club you have set up).

For more information about the organisation and data management of the Festival, please view our FAQs and Privacy Policy.

Limitation of Liability

We are not liable at all for any loss or damage which you might incur through your use of this site in any way at all. This includes, but is not limited to, any damage to person or property which might arise. If, under the relevant law, we are so liable, then our liability cannot exceed the amount of any expense incurred by you in using this site.

Submission of Material

You are welcome to submit any material for our consideration. We should warn you, however, that we do not undertake to keep such material confidential, and we have the absolute right to make use of it in any way we choose without incurring any liability to you, whether in respect of payment or otherwise.

Use of the Resources

Content on the Into Film website ("Resources") may only be copied, downloaded and/or redistributed if that use of the Resource is not for a commercial purpose and falls within a copyright exception provided for in the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988, including one or more the following:

(a) Fair dealing for the purposes of private study (Section 29)

Unless your copying of the content is for your own study purposes, this exception is unlikely to apply if multiple copies are made for more than one person to use for the same purpose, e.g. hand-outs for a class of students.

(b) Fair dealing for the sole and non-commercial purpose of illustration for instruction (Section 32)

If you are a teacher, pupil or parent of a pupil, you may be allowed to copy content in the course of teaching or being taught, or of preparing for teaching for being taught. You will need to give "sufficient acknowledgement" which means identifying the work, by its title or other description, and the author of the work. To acknowledge the author of a film you may need to identify all of the following: the author of the screenplay, the author of any underlying work such as a novel, the principal director, the production company and the author of the music. Other copyright works included in a film, such as songs or artwork, will also need to be acknowledged where relevant.

(c) Fair dealing for the purpose of criticism or review (Section 30)

The use of the content must be no more than required by the specific purpose for which it is being used. A sufficient acknowledgement is required, as with the previous exception.

Please note that it is your sole responsibility to determine whether your proposed use of any Resource falls within one of the above or any other copyright exception. The notes set out above on the terms of the exceptions are not legal advice and are provided for your guidance only.

Use of the Resources for any other purpose must be specifically approved in writing by Into Film.

System Abuse

In its widest sense, you agree that you will in no way abuse the online system, whether by way of spamming or in any other way. You may not reproduce, sell, resell or otherwise exploit any resource, or access to any resource, contained on this site. You may not share or disclose account log-in credentials. You are also prohibited from, again in its widest sense, undertaking any action which compromises the security of this or any other site, or that of any other user.

Proper Law
