Consulting Terms & Privacy

Effective Date: April 30, 2019.

What We Believe

We believe in importance of the privacy of our visitors and respecting our clients, and we are committed to keeping your data and information safe while providing you with the best service.​

The information in this Terms & Privacy describes who we are, what information you may or may not provide us by visiting or purchasing a service from EL, and how that information is used or not used, based on your preferences. We also explain to you what to expect as a client and what you agree to when you hire Evelyn Lee as a consultant/consulting producer.

Who We Are

Evelyn Lee (“Evelyn Lee,” “EL“) is a sole-proprietorship studio providing consulting services. We work remotely and virtually, and operate on New York time.

Evelyn Lee respects all clients’ privacy, and payment to Evelyn for consulting services is a binding contract. She believes in safeguarding the intellectual property of clients, and protecting the integrity of their work.

The material appearing on this website www.evelynleefilms.com (this “Site“) is provided as information about EL’s events, people, stories, or as a platform for online connection and community. EL and its directors, agents, managers, employees, and affiliates assume no responsibility or liability for any consequences resulting directly or indirectly from any action or inaction you take based on the information and materials found or linked to no this site.

Your Privacy

Any material submitted to Evelyn, as well as any supplementary information regarding the work and its team, will never be shared, sold, publicized, or made available to any third party members. Furthermore, Evelyn will never hold any claim or copyright to your material, and will never demand a percentage or participation in the sale or production of your material.

All of your material is safely stored at all times on a secure server. We use secure cloud-based applications including Google Drive and Dropbox and we treat your material with the utmost care due to its sensitive nature. When finished, any related material shared will be kept in our offline database archive for three (3) months. The materials you provide us will be securely deleted.

Again, your materials will not be distributed, made available in any way, shared, sold, or rented/leased to any third party, person, or entity outside of EL.

What Data You Provide When Using Our Service

Your IP, browser information, OS and version may be logged by our website provider, WordPress. If you are concerned about your IP details being logged, consider using a VPN service. WordPress also uses cookies, files created by the website to your browser cache.

WHEN YOU PURCHASE SERVICES ON OUR SITE, YOU PROVIDE BILLING DATA

When you purchase services, your billing information and details will be provided to PayPal. While we have minimized the information you will need to provide during checkout, we have no full control over what billing information PayPal ultimately collects from you in your transaction.

We cannot ever see your credit card information. In the cases that we provide a direct invoice to you, we cannot initiate a charge without your explicit permission. Only our administration staff has access to sensitive information provided, and we will only use it to contact you in support situations (ie, look up a past order).

How We Share the Data You Provide

We do not share your data. Plain and simple. We do not give, sell, trade, rent, lease, or make available in any way your personal data and information to anyone outside of EL. We never will. We promise.

How We Use The Data You Provide

  • To provide services and products
  • To personalize your user experience
  • To deliver transactional and support emails to you
  • When/if subpoenaed by authority and we are demanded to provide any information we have

We do not share your details and/or materials with anyone, ever.

How We Secure The Data You Provide

We keep everything offline and away from easy access. After we are finished with a project, we will remove all files related to it from cloud-based networks.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at consulting@evelynleefilms.com.

You understand that EL holds absolutely no claim to your work whatsoever.

Your submission of materials related to the consulting service is for reference only, and in no way does it give us any claim of ownership or rights to any of your ideas, characters, plot, themes, et al. Nor will we or any of our employees or assigns distribute, in any way, your information or your work to any third parties.

You understand that there are no refunds and all sales are full and final.

There will be no refunds of any kind for any products and/or services offered by Evelyn Lee sold on or through the Site. All sales of this kind are full and final.

You understand that Evelyn Lee is only a consultant and only provides consulting advice based on professional experiences.

Evelyn Lee is a consultant and not a licensed attorney, and therefore cannot give legal advice. Any consulting advice given regarding a contract and/or related documents is solely based on Evelyn’s professional experience with previous contracts and deals and is not real, legal advice. For real, legal advice, please advise an entertainment attorney.

You understand that this is a service to help you devise a distribution strategy and EL will not distribute your film.

The Studio is only providing a consulting service to you for your project, and will work with you to come up with the best plan that suits your distribution needs. EL will NOT be distributing your film and will, in no way, act as a distributor for the project. For legal reasons, we do not accept unsolicited submissions for distribution.

You understand that outcomes will vary.

Every project and situation is different. Evelyn Lee will do her best to help you and work with you to achieve the results you want. However, because every project is different, the results and outcomes may vary. Some may take longer or require more steps. This is part of the process and does not in any way invalidate the service or value provided. It does not entitle you to a refund or remediation.

You understand that your PayPal or credit card statement will read EL Services or similar.

Please make sure that you recognize the charge on your statement when it appears. If you dispute a charge on your statement because you don’t recognized it, and our account is deducted, you agree to pay that charge back plus any fees we incur.

You understand that unless you apply and are approved for a Project-Based Consultation, you will not have Evelyn Lee on your project.

If you are not approved, or you book hourly consultations with Evelyn, she will only provide consulting services in a limited fashion.

You understand that acceptance of these terms is legally binding.

By accepting these terms, you are joining into a binding, legal contract that is valid and enforceable within a court of law.

Limitation of Liability

You expressly understand and agree that EL and its subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, employees, agents, partners, and licensors shall not be liable to you for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including, but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data, or other intangible losses (regardless of whether EL has been advised of the possibility of such damages), resulting from:

(ii) The cost of the procurement of substitute goods and services resulting from any goods, data, information or services purchased or obtained or messages receives or transactions entered into through or from the EL Consulting service; or

Miscellaneous Terms

The terms of the User Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and EL and governs your use of the EL Consulting service. Furthermore, the terms of the User Agreement and the relationship between you and EL shall be governed by the laws of the State of New York without regard to its conflict of law provisions. You and EL agree to submit to the personal and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts located within the county of New York, NY. The failure of EL to exercise or enforce any right or provision of the Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of the Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties’ intentions as reflected in the provision, and the other provisions of the Agreement remain in full force and effect. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising out of or related to use of the EL service or the Agreement must be filed within 1 month after such claim or cause of action arose or you will be barred from raising such a claim(s).
