Hybrid Films™ Privacy Policy and Legal Notice

At Hybrid Films, Inc. (“Hybrid”), we are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy and Legal Notice will advise you about how we protect your personal information, what choices you have concerning the use of that information and other pertinent legal information.

The Information We Collect and How We Use It

We collect information on www.hybridfilms.tv (the “Site”) in order to make it possible for you to access all the Site features and enhance your overall experience on the Site. You can browse the Site without submitting any personally identifiable information, but we do collect some anonymous information when you access the Site.

Information Provided by You

When you visit the Site, you will be invited to provide personal information to join our mailing list, submit a proposal, upload content (including audio and video files) and participate in discussion forums. When registering, you will be asked for your name, e-mail address, birth date, zip code and gender.

Information Shared With Third Parties

We may use your contact data to send you information about Hybrid, as well as information about our upcoming productions, events and other news. You may always opt out of receiving future mailings – see the “Opt Out” section below.

In addition we may employ outside agents, meaning other companies or individuals to perform functions on our behalf, such as sending postal mail and e-mail, conducting sweepstakes and other promotional activities, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance and providing customer service. These Hybrid agents have access to personal information needed to perform their functions. Other than our outside agents and certain Hybrid suppliers and vendors, we keep all of your personal information private and will not share it with any third party, unless you have authorized us to or we are legally required to do so. Hybrid may also release your personal information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property or safety of Hybrid, our users, or others.

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine the Light” law, permits our customers who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to:
