Privacy Policy

Emotional Pictures Corporation (collectively “Emotional Pictures” or “we” or “us” or “our”) has developed this Privacy Policy which details important information regarding the use and disclosure of user information collected on our website and our collection of personal information during our normal course of business and record-keeping, such as through your participation in productions.

Emotional Pictures is a producer of non-fiction programming, whose series have aired on more than 15 television networks and in more than 50 countries worldwide.  And, privacy is of great importance to us. Therefore, we have established this Privacy Policy as a means to communicate our information gathering and dissemination practices. 

 It is important that you read this Privacy Policy, together with any other terms, releases and notices that we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing personal information about you, so that you are aware of how and why we are using such information.  If there are other parties involved in any productions who have collected your personal information directly from you, they may use your information in accordance with their own privacy and cookie notices, which you should also read.

 By using this website and/or providing information to us during our normal course of business, such as through your participation in productions, you signify your assent to this Privacy Policy.  We may modify this Privacy Policy from time to time in our sole discretion and will post any such changes on our website. If you are from outside the United States, please note any information you provide may be transferred to, stored, and processed within the United States.

We do not collect personal information from you when you visit our website.  If you choose to contact us via email through our website, we may retain your email and email address along with any other associated information.  Doing so is completely voluntary on your part, and you have the choice about whether and what information to disclose via your email.

 We may collect certain personal information from you outside of our website during the course of our normal business operations if you do business with us and/or are employed by us.  For example, we may collect certain personal information about you (such as, without limitation, name, email address, date of birth, address, and phone number) through your participation in a production and related activities, either directly from you or from your representative, or from third parties authorized by you.  



Use of Information by Us.  We do not sell, lease, or otherwise directly monetize your personal information.  However, we may use such information: (1) to process transactions and/or conduct business with you; (2) for internal record keeping; (3) to contact you (4) for internal business purposes; (5) as required by law, and/or (6) as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy. 
 Legal Matters; Safety.  We may, without your consent, access and disclose your information, any communications sent or received by you, and any other information that we may have about you as may be permitted or required by law or to prevent or investigate suspected fraud, or activity that appears to us to be illegal or may expose us to legal liability. Additionally, we may disclose your information and/or communications in situations that we believe to be: (i) emergencies involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person or property if we believe that your information in any way relates to that threat; or (ii) your conduct that we believe is inappropriate and inconsistent with generally accepted norms of behavior.


If for any reason you are concerned that any information you provided to us is not correct and you wish to change it, you have the ability to review and update or correct your personal information. If you would like to do so, please contact us as set forth below. Specify the nature of your request and the information that is subject to your request.

We reserve the right not to allow access to your information or to limit your rights (e.g. if such disclosure is prohibited by law or if the rights of another individual might be violated). Please also note that despite any request for an update or change to personal information, we may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes and there may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed or changed. 


We do not track cookies or use other tracking technologies on our website.  In addition, you can also control the use of cookies at the individual browser level as most browsers and mobile devices allow you to change your settings to notify you when you receive cookies or other tracking technologies are being used, and to choose whether or not to accept or allow it.  Most browsers allow you to disable or delete existing cookies or to automatically reject future cookies.
