Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

We provide Scrite on Windows, Linux and macOS desktop platforms to help screenwriters plot and write their screenplays better and to import, export and generate reports of their screenplays written using Scrite. Going forward we intend to provide features for users of our apps to network with other writers for collaboration and/or sharing their work, ideas and opinions.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

User Profile

Starting with version 0.7.14-beta, the Scrite app requests you to login to your account in order to use several features of the app. While access to several features are provided for free to logged in users, certain features are made available only to users who have signed up for one or more paid-subscription plans as described on this website.

As a part of the sign-up / login process, the following fields of information are collected.

  • Email
  • Name
  • Experience
  • City & Country
  • Where you found about Scrite from?

This information is stored on our servers and shall remain there until you send us a request to delete any and all information we have stored about your user profile.

Once logged in, the login information is also saved on your computer and are refreshed upon application startup. As long as Scrite is able to access our servers, the login information, including tokens, are periodically refreshed.

In the event Internet connectivity is unavailable, cached login information will be used for a period of 28 days, post which you will be forced to login/activate your installation once again.

User information collected by official builds of Scrite (available for download from this website) are stored on our servers. Custom builds of Scrite (created by downloading the source code of the app from GitHub) are not provided access to API keys required for communicating with our servers, therefore our servers will not process and/or store data furnished by builds that do not have access to these API keys.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

Sometimes we collect personally identifiable data from you through our contact forms. This data is not stored in our servers for the sole purpose of taking feedback and reverting to you regarding the same.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. 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.


Subject to your consent, starting with version 0.7.14-beta, official builds of the Scrite desktop app (available for download from this website) submits activity logs to our servers whenever you use specific features of the app (like Structure, Notebook, Scriptalay, Export, Report, Import, Scrite etc..). All activity logs are tagged against your user profile stored on our servers.

Activity logs collected this way are used for understanding usage patterns, so that we can fine tune our efforts to build features you value the most.

Activity logs do not contain any information about what you type in your screenplays. We invite you to review source code of the Scrite app hosted on GitHub to verify for yourself the kind of activity log information collected by us.

NOTE: Custom builds of Scrite do-not have access to API-keys required for communicating with our servers. Any data sent by such builds, with no-access to our API keys, will be discarded.

What communication can you expect from us?

Activation codes, for activating your Scrite installations, are sent to you email.

The first time you sign up for an account with us, you will receive a welcome email with links to important information. Subsequently, you will get an email every time an installation of Scrite is activated with your email.

If you sign up for a paid-subscription plan, then important communication regarding your subscription will be sent on email to you.

Additionally we may send marketing communication to you on email, unless you decline receiving any such communication from us.

Who we share your data with

Your data may be shared with anybody within TERIFLIX and with those individuals, teams or organizations who participate in marketing, sales and development of the Scrite app.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

User and activity log information captured through the Scrite desktop app (from version 0.7.14 onwards) are stored on our servers for as long as we find it necessary, unless you explicitly write to us for having that information deleted.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request us to delete your user account with us. This process deletes any account information we have about you on the website, but may not delete comments or posts you have already published.

If you have an user account created with us through the Scrite app (version 0.7.14 beta or later), then you may write to us (via email to scrite @ teriflix dot com) to delete all information we have tagged to you. We will get back to you as within 15 business days with an acknowledgement about the actions taken.
