Glasgow Film At Home is the on demand platform owned and operated by Glasgow Film.

Glasgow Film (referred to as either “The Company”, “we”, “us” or “our”) is the controller of your personal data (for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation).

We are committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your personal data. We respect your privacy.

Your use of the Platform is subject to our Privacy Policy

This policy is subject to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR.) Government guidance on GDPR can be found here.

Personal Data
For the purposes of our uses, Personal Data is information about an individual from which that individual is directly identified or can be identified. It does not include anonymous data (that is, information where the identity of an individual has been permanently removed.) However, it does include indirect identifiers or pseudonymous data (that is, information which alone does not identify and individual but, when combined with certain additional and reasonably accessible information, could be attributed to a particular person.)

All the Personal Data we collect, both from you and from third parties about you, is outlined below:

  1. Identity data: First name, surname, maiden name, last name, username or similar identifier, marital status, title, date of birth, gender.
  2. Contact data: Your home address, work address (for corporate customers, schools and suppliers), billing address, email address, telephone numbers.
  3. Financial data: Your bank account and payment card details.
  4. Transaction data: Any details about payments to and from you and other details of subscriptions and services you have purchased from us. Data in respect of your transactions with third parties (including your credit history).
  5. Marketing data: Your preferences in receiving marketing from us and our third parties and your communication preferences. Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to Personal Data provided to us as a result of purchasing products (such as booking confirmation emails).
  6. Behavioural data: Inferred or assumed information relating to your behaviour and interests, based on your online activity. This is most often collated and grouped into “segments” (for example, there may be a segment for women, who like films from a particular country).
  7. Technical data: Internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access this website or use our services.

We do not collect any Special Categories of Personal Data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). We do not collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

Gender and date of birth do not fall under these Special Categories.

Aggregated Data
We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic. Aggregated Data may be derived from your Personal Data, but once in aggregated form it will not constitute considered Personal Data for the purposes of the GDPR as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your Personal Data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as Personal Data which will be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Personal Data from Third Party Sources
In addition to the Personal Data that we collect directly from you (as described), we also collect certain of your Personal Data from third party sources. Further details of this can be found below in Section 10, Third Party Services .


In respect of each of the purposes for which we use your Personal Data as outlined above (identity data, contact data, financial data, transaction data, marketing data, behavioural and technical data) the GDPR requires us to ensure that we have a “legal basis” for that use. Most commonly, we will rely on one of the following legal bases:

Generally we do not rely on your consent as a legal basis for using your Personal Data other than in the context of direct marketing communications.
