Collection, Maintenance, and Use
The Company provides casting services to production companies, networks, agencies, managers, casting directors, and other motion picture, theatrical, radio, television, and entertainment professionals which includes the aggregation of casting application submissions from people wishing to be considered as potential candidates in the casting search.
The Company may collect and use all or any portion of your Personal Information for the purposes of providing features of our Website, providing the Services, selecting you (if at all) as a prospective candidate for casting in one or multiple film, television and/or other productions, verifying the accuracy and truthfulness of the submitted Personal Information, storing and maintaining your information on a database of prospective background performers, determining eligibility for products and services, researching potential enhancements to the Website or Services, researching potential enhancements to our marketing practices, managing your application and our relationship, communicating with you, assessing your future needs, communicating with a third party, or otherwise managing our business. The Company’s use of your Personal Information is not limited to the foregoing, but such use is limited only to the extent necessary to deliver the Services or operate the business. Personal Information may also be used for other purposes, subject to obtaining your prior consent for such use. If the Company does not select you as a prospective candidate for casting in current or future film, television and/or other productions, the Company will discard and delete your Personal Information.
If you do not want to receive unsolicited marketing communications from us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow you to opt out of telephone and email communications and/or to change previously submitted opt-out preferences.
PIPA further deems that an individual has consented to the Company’s collection, use or disclosure of Personal Information about the individual if, at the time the consent is deemed to be given, the purpose would be considered obvious to a reasonable person. In such circumstances, the Company will collect, use or disclose Personal Information without obtaining written or verbal consent to do so.
It is important that your Personal Information is current, accurate, factual and complete. The Company relies on you to keep us informed of any changes, simply by contacting us. If you identify any Personal Information that is out-of-date, incorrect or incomplete, please let us know. We will make the corrections promptly and use every commercially reasonable effort to communicate these changes to other parties who may have inadvertently received incorrect or out-of-date Personal Information from us.
We do not purposefully or knowingly collect Personal Information from individuals under the age of majority in the jurisdiction of their residence (“Minor”) without the consent of their parent of legal guardian. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Minor has provided us with Personal Information without your consent, please contact us. If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from Minors without verification of parental consent, we will discard and delete said Personal Information.
Safeguarding Personal Information
At the Company, we employ physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect our systems and all Personal Information under our control against unauthorized access and use. All safety and security measures are appropriate to the sensitivity level of the information collected. Our service providers and agents are required to maintain client confidentiality, and may not use any information provided by us for any unauthorized purpose.
