Terms and conditions

Welcome to Fund Your Film: the Screen Finance Kit, a reference website, digital book and printed book created and published by Netribution (a limited company registered in England, number 3912820), available at fundyourfilm.com, referred to here as 'the service'.

These Terms & Conditions ('Terms') are a contract between Us and You that spells out your rights and our rights relating to this site.

Basics

We provide the service, including subscription access to paying members, the provision of downloads, mailouts, and responding to emails as quickly as possible.

In turn, Netribution grants you a personal worldwide license to access this website - and, if eligible, the subscription areas. We are a small operation created for film producers and filmmakers by filmmakers, producers and people working in film - and we ask that you follow these terms and treat this website with respect.

You are NOT permitted to interrupt the serving of our website, introduce malicious code, assist anyone in misusing the website in any way, or use the website to violate the law, or the safety or dignity of another person in any way.

The campaign

Payments made to this site are for the products and services detailed under each offer. They are not an investment, and are not recoupable or refundable in any way. Instead they pay for a number of products and services, delivered at point of payment (and sometimes later).

The fundraising campaign aims to run for up to a year - this may be extended or reduced at our discretion.

We will produce as much content and functions as we can for the money that is raised. Backers receive only as much content as we are able to produce through this campaign based on money rasied. If we do not reach our target of £32,000 we will only produce as much as we have raised funding to support, e.g., if we do not reach Stage 5 - Printing a Book - there will be no printed book.

If we do not reach our Stage 1 target of £1,500, the campaign will end, and all backers will be refunded.

Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000 you have seven working days to change your mind and cancel this agreement  in return for a refund, provided that you have not already downloaded any digital books or documents from this website (this does not include HTML/CSS/JS and image files downloaded automatically by your browser while you visit the website). Downloading a file signals the start of your use of this service.

Membership & access

All backers will have access to services and content as detailed in the offer, at the level they are backing.

Online access to those products and services will last for one year after the completion of the campaign, or one year after the point of buying a support package, whichever is later.

All downloaded content will be usable indefinitely, for any purpose within the limits of the license agreement below.

You should be over 18 to use the subscription, member-access & content submission parts of the website (such as comments). If you are under 18, you confirm that you have permission of your parent or guardian to do this.

Third-party links

This service contains links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by Netribution Ltd. Netribution accepts no responsibility for the content and practices of external websites. These Terms apply only to this Website.

License

Content from the service that you download, and exclusive online content, is available for you - and you alone - to view, read and print out, unless otherwise stated.

Publishing, selling, re-using in other forms, making available on a company intranet, or distributing content that we own digitally or in print or any other method, is not permitted under this agreement - except where either:

a) the content has been clearly labelled as available under a Creative Commons license;
b) the author of the content or the publisher Netribution has permitted this explicitly over email or in writing;

The agreement is personal to you (or your organisation). You (or your organisation) may not assign, sublicense or otherwise transfer any of your rights under these terms. You shall not sell, licence, rent, or otherwise use or exploit any content for commercial use or in any way that violates third party rights. Your contribution does not entitle you to any rights in or to Fund Your Film, including without limitation any ownership, control or intellectual property rights, except as expressly described above in a) and b).

To ensure you have maximum freedom to move files between different platforms and e-readers, we do not use digital rights management (DRM) to enforce this. A breach of this part of the Terms ends all our obligations to you within the Terms and could result in terminating your membership account and other further actions.
