Why do we ask which Country you live in ?

Movie Studio Zen has members in most countries and regions of the world. Each country and region is governed by different local laws and regulations. For Movie Studio Zen to stay compliant with local laws and regulations surrounding data protection, we need to know which country you live in.

From the 25th May 2018, the European Union will be enforcing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Many members of the Movie Studio Zen website/forum live in the EU and Movie Studio Zen has now implemented the changes necessary to be compliant with this regulation.
