🌎Understanding Region Restrictions

At Film.io, we strive to provide a seamless and accessible platform for users worldwide. However, it's important to be aware of certain restrictions that may apply to the use of our services based on your location and regional regulations. Here, we'll help you understand these region-specific restrictions and how they can impact your access to our platform.

1. Embargoed Countries: Some countries are subject to trade embargoes and sanctions imposed by the United States and other jurisdictions. These restrictions prohibit us from providing our services to residents, nationals, or entities established under the laws of these Embargoed Countries. As of the last update, Embargoed Countries include Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Syria, Crimea region, Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR), and Luhansk People’s Republic (LNR) of Ukraine.

2. Prohibited or Restricted Parties: To comply with international regulations, we are prohibited from providing services to individuals or entities listed on government-maintained lists of prohibited or restricted parties. These lists may include the U.S. Office of Foreign Asset Control’s (OFAC) Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List, as well as other OFAC Lists or Directives. Additionally, it encompasses lists like the Entity, Denied Persons, Military End User, and Unverified Lists maintained by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the UN Security Council Consolidated List.

3. Controlled Entities: We are also restricted from providing services to any party that is owned or controlled by a restricted or prohibited entity or individual. This measure is in place to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

4. Financial Crimes and Illicit Activities: Our platform is not intended for use in the commission of financial crimes or for any illicit purpose. Engaging in such activities is strictly prohibited, and any attempts to do so will result in account suspension or other appropriate actions.

What Does This Mean for You?

If you are located in an Embargoed Country, listed on any government-prohibited or restricted parties list, or are connected to such entities, you may be restricted from accessing certain features or services on our platform.

We take these restrictions seriously to ensure compliance with international laws and regulations. It's essential to be aware of these limitations to maintain a positive and compliant experience on Film.io.
