A Final Draft technician may request your script for troubleshooting purposes. This is a safe and secure process. Final Draft uses LiveHelpNow for file transmission. Their security protocols are described here.

All customer files sent via LiveHelpNow to Final Draft are deleted automatically by the LiveHelpNow system within 24 hours. All customer files worked on by Final Draft technicians are also deleted from their local computers upon the closing of the support ticket.

Cast & Crew Production Software, LLC dba Final Draft (“FD”) respects its clients’ intellectual property rights and their privacy and no scripts are read for content other than what is necessary to resolve the technical issue.


FD reserves the right at any time to refuse, restrict, suspend or terminate technical support to any customer who becomes abusive or uses foul language with any of our staff.

FD reserves the right to change terms of support and/or services offered at any time.
