The Filmaholic
As the harsh winter sets in, the people of Ukraine, under the inhumane bombardment of Vladimir Putin and his forces who callously strike Ukraine's citizens and infrastructure, are struggling to stay warm and alive in sub-zero temperatures. Please consider helping them with a donation to the Red Cross who will provide humanatarian aid. #standwithukraine

The Filmaholic's Privacy Policy


Privacy is important. Your personally identifiable information, including your email address, will never be willingly given or sold to third-parties. Your email is needed to get the best from the site, but you shouldn't receive any emails from the site except for when requesting a password reset link. Optional information can also be saved to your account, but is only used for anonymous aggregation to provide interesting stats. Similarly, some information is used for website analytics.

If you choose to subscribe to the A-List, information will be taken from you via a secure form in order to process payment. I will never use this information except when required for account management. No third party will have access to this information, apart from Stripe, the payment processor. You can see their privacy policy here.

In more detail...

The Filmaholic provides an entertaining service for film buffs to track their watches and get back some interesting information.

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes the “Personal Data” that we collect about you, how we use it, how we share it, your rights and choices, and how you can contact us about our privacy practices. This Policy also outlines your data subject rights, including the right to object to some uses of your Personal Data by us.

Although The Filmaholic is run by a single person, it may be refered to as “The Filmaholic”, "I", “we”, “our” or “us”. All of these mean me, as an individual, and the the sole proprietor of the website.

Personal Data” means any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual, and can include information about how you engage with our Services (e.g. device information, IP address).

Information Gathering

Upon registration, The Filmaholic asks for your email address, which is the only field which is required information along with a password, as it is necessary in case your password is lost. You can add other personal information which helps me in building interesting statistics, but is not required. Lack of that information may exclude you from some statistics, but it is a personal choice as to whether you provide that information, and how much you provide.

We also make use of traffic analytics software which collects site usage data, such as which pages you visit and how often you load the site.

Information Sharing

I will not share your email address, user name, ip address or other information that could be used to identify you, with any third party. We will not make your email address visible to other users.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You maintain full control over the information held to run your account. You can revoke your acceptence at any time or request any of the below by emailing [email protected]


We take precautions to protect your information. We will never ask you to submit any sensitive information via the website, or email. Even so, the information we do have is protected both online and offline.

All information communicated to this website is encrypted and transmitted in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for 'https' at the beginning of the address of the web page.


At this moment in time, I'm hoping to avoid advertisements, even for free users, as they're annoying and rely on third parties. The Filmaholic has the right to change this at any time and will update the Policy accordingly.
