We may also collect information to enable certain System features, such as facial recognition data. If we do so, we will make it clear through a notice that we are collecting such information and will collect your consent to do so.

Information Collected Automatically. We collect information automatically from you when you visit and use the Website. Such information includes the following:

Usage information. We collect information about how you interact with the Website to operate and improve the Website. This includes information such as the dates and times that you visit the Website, the page you view, referring / exit URLs, and your browser type.

Cookies and Usage Reports

By placing a small file known as a "cookie" on your computer (or other device), Project Casting’s and its third party service providers’ servers passively gather information about all visitors' use of the System for several reasons, including, but not limited to, the following: statistics collection and analysis, System optimization, analytics, and maintenance of user login information. The information that we and our third party service providers track with cookies includes, but is not limited to, the type of browser (such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer) and Internet-connected devices being used to access the System, your Internet protocol (“IP”) address, your home domain or Internet service provider, your referrer URL (which is the URL for the website that you were viewing prior to visiting the System), how you were directed to the System, which specific pages you access on the System, how long you view each page, the time and date you access our System and the total number of visitors to the System and any portions thereof. We, and/or our third party service providers, may use the information collected from cookies or similar files on your computer for security purposes (such as authentication), to facilitate site navigation and to personalize your experience while visiting the System. This data helps us and our third party service providers improve our respective products and services.

Most popular Internet browser applications will allow you to configure the browser so as not to accept cookies. However, setting your browser to reject cookies may, in certain instances, prevent you from taking full advantage of the System (or some portion thereof) and its capabilities, or cause some features of the System to function improperly or more slowly.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, in order to better understand your use of the Website and how we can improve it. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit a website, what pages you visit when you do so, and what other websites you used prior to coming to such website. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit a website, rather than your name or other directly identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with your Personal Information. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit a website, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google Analytics uses its cookie(s) and the information Google Analytics collects to track your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Website, and other websites. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Website is governed by the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy. Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of the Website, to prepare reports on its activities, and share them with other Google services. To more fully understand how Google may use the data it collects on the Website, please review “How Google Uses Information From Sites or Apps That Use Our Services” (located here).

We retain the Personal Information that we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with the services you requested or to comply with an applicable legal requirement).

With Whom Do We Share Information That We Collect?

If you are a professional, creators and other professionals will be able to see your Personal Information that you have submitted and is contained within or associated with your account profile.

For any purchases that you make, it will be necessary for us to share some of your Personal Information with the third party payment processors in order to process your requested transaction.

We may share information, which may include Personal Information, with third parties for the purpose of delivering targeted advertising.

We may also disclose Personal Information if we become subject to a subpoena or court order, or if we are otherwise legally required to disclose information.

As Project Casting grows and develops its business, it is possible that its corporate structure or organization might change or that it might merge or otherwise combine with, or that it or portions of its business might be acquired by, another company. In any such transactions, customer information generally is, and should be expected to be, one of the transferred business assets. Also, if any bankruptcy, liquidation or reorganization proceeding is brought by or against us, your information may be considered a company asset that may be sold or transferred to third parties.

We may also disclose your Personal Information to third parties hired by us to collect, maintain, and analyze candidates for career positions.

What Choices Do You Have?

When submitting information, corresponding, making requests for information, and otherwise interacting with Project Casting and its representatives through or in connection with the System, you generally choose what information to supply or submit, whether you wish to receive further information, and how you may be contacted. Please take care to share only such information as is needed or that you believe is appropriate.

How Do We Protect Information Collected About You?

Project Casting takes commercially reasonable measures to secure and protect information transmitted via or stored on the System. Nevertheless, no security system is impenetrable.

You agree to immediately notify us of any breach of the System's security, this Privacy Policy, or the Terms of Use of which you become aware.

Linked Websites

For your convenience, some hyperlinks may be posted on the System that link to other websites not under our control. We are not responsible for, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to, the privacy practices of those sites or of any companies that we do not own or control.

We encourage you to seek out and read the privacy policy of each website that you visit. In addition, should you happen to initiate a transaction on a website that our System links to, even if you reached that site through the System, the information that you submit to complete that transaction becomes subject to the privacy practices of the operator of that linked website. You should read that website's privacy policies to understand how Personal Information that is collected about you is used and protected.
