    Privacy Policy

    Your privacy is important to us. It is Method Acting’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect from you across our website and other sites we own and operate.

    We only ask for personal information when we truly need it to provide a service to you. We collect it by fair and lawful means, with your knowledge and consent. We also let you know why we’re collecting it and how it will be used.

    Who we are

    Method Acting, registered at 84 Union Road, London, SW4 6JU in the United Kingdom, is a sole proprietorship run by Sam Rumbelow.

    What personal data we collect and why we collect it

    Your Profile

    Your personal details, collected upon registration, are necessary for administrative purposes relevant to the services Method Acting provides. They will not be provided to third parties under any circumstances and may be kept for up to 12 months after the last time you purchased services, both for marketing purposes and in the case that you again purchase services from us (at which the 12 month period starts again). After 12 months, your details will be deleted from our database.

    An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/.

    Media

    If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website may be able to download and extract any location data from images on the website.

    Cookies

    If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

    When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information. Login cookies last for one day. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

    Embedded content from other websites

    Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

    These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

    Who we share your data with

    Your personal data is not shared with other third parties unless there is a legal requirement to do so.
    Vimeo
    Our website uses features provided by the Vimeo video portal. This service is provided by Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

    If you visit one of our pages featuring a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. Here the Vimeo server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo will receive your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo when you visit our plugin or do not have a Vimeo account. The information is transmitted to a Vimeo server in the US, where it is stored.

    If you are logged in to your Vimeo account, Vimeo allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.

    For more information on how to handle user data, please refer to the Vimeo Privacy Policy at https://vimeo.com/privacy.
    Google Web Fonts
    For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

    For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our plugin. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.

    If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.

    Further information about handling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

    How long we retain your data

    For users that register on our website, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information. It is retained for up to 12 months past the last time you purchased services from Method Acting. It may be used for our marketing purposes, but for no other third party businesses or purposes.

    What rights you have over your data

    If you have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

    Where we send your data

    Your data will not be provided to other third parties unless required to do so by law.

    Your continued use of our website will be regarded as acceptance of our practices around privacy and personal information. If you have any questions about how we handle user data and personal information, feel free to contact us.
