Privacy Policy

The Privacy Policy of https://filmsonashoestring.com was last updated on 13th February 2019.

We don’t allow comments on this site or collect subscribers. We don’t collect your email address or personal information. While using our site, you will not be asked to provide us with certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information may include but is not limited to your name (“Personal Information”). We do NOT use Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information.

Please follow us on Facebook if you want to keep up to date with new posts.

Some articles on this site may include embedded content, such as 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.

We have signed up to the Google Adsense Programme and Amazon EU Affiliates Programme, which use cookies. This brings in (literally) pennies to help keep this site online. You may opt out of receiving targeted advertising by adjusting the privacy settings in your browser to block cookies.

The settings for these adverts are highly restricted – no content unsuitable for children under the age of 16 is permitted at all. We receive very little advertising revenue because of this decision, but it is in the best interest of our younger readers.

The analytics provider for our site will place a cookie on your device in order to count the number of visitors and views for each page of this site. We don’t use this information to identify you or any other targeting purpose. We chose the option not to collect the full IP address of our visitors.

Google Adsense and Amazon Affiliates will place a cookie on your device when you click through to a third-party website so the referral can be counted. We will receive a small payment for your click which helps keep our site maintained. Your data isn’t used by us to build a user profile of your behaviour or other purposes.

None of the articles posted on our site is written for advertising purposes or is sponsored.


Small amounts of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier, are called cookies. They are sent to your browser from a website and are stored on your device. Like many sites, we use cookies to collect information to count the page views of each article. We don’t use them to personally identify you or build a user profile. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.

However, if you are not happy for us to collect cookies, please do not use our site.

Google Adsense and Amazon Affiliates, whose links appear on our site, will also collect cookies so that the referral is counted. We will receive a small payment for the referral, which is used to pay the maintenance costs of running this site. The information collected by the other parties may include your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site and, in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This data is generally used for geographical targeting, such as showing non-UK ads to overseas readers and tailoring adverts to the interests of the reader.

DART cookies may be used for ads served through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising. This includes some Google AdSense advertisements, which are shown on our site. This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests. The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. No one at https://filmsonashoestring.com sees your previous browsing history or the adverts you are shown. DART does not track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this on all sites using this form of advertising here.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We have established an https site with SSL certification to protect you, even though we do not allow readers to register, comment, subscribe or use any other means to provide their name or identification. But remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
