Effective Date: July 01, 2016
What types of information do you collect?
We collect “personally identifiable information”, “usage information” and “user generated video content” (e.g., videotaped auditions and other materials that showcase acting ability).
“Personally identifiable information” is information that tells us who you are, such as your name, the last four digits of your social security number, physical address, and e-mail address. “Usage information” is information automatically collected by our web server (which may be hosted by a third-party) that your web browser makes available whenever you visit or use our Website or App, such as your computer’s IP address or browser type. “User generated content” is content submitted in the form of electronically recorded auditions and/or other materials that showcase acting ability; user generated video content is, in some instances, treated as personally identifiable information.
Why do you collect such information?
We may collect personally identifiable information when you create an account with our Website and/or App, verify your identity and provide consent to create a child’s account, create an actor profile, edit or update your account information or actor profile, submit questions or comments via the Website and/or App, or if you voluntarily choose to provide it to us. For example, if you register with the Website or App, we may collect your email address along with a unique username and password. If you decide to create an actor profile, we may collect your first and last name, physical address, e-mail address, phone number and other information about you and your appearance (e.g., gender, birthday, hair/eye color, height, weight, skills, acting experience, training, and representation). This information is consistent with industry resume information for actors.
In order to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we require that a parent or legal guardian register users under the age of 13 who would like to create an account. During the process of creating the child account, we may provide different methods for verifiable parental consent. For example, we may use an online verification service through a third party provider approved by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission). If a parent/guardian chooses this method, we will collect the following information from the parent/guardian: name, address, phone number, date of birth, and the last 4 digits of his/her social security number. Other information may also be requested during this verification process. Another method to verify parental consent is to purchase our upgraded account (currently called a “PRO Account”) using a credit card. The parent/guardian who creates a child account for his/her child will have full access to that child account until it is deleted.
We may collect user generated content when you record and submit a video audition and/or other related content to us. In the event that the user generated content contains the name, image or other personal information of a child under the age of 13, it will be treated as personally identifiable information.
You can choose not to provide personally identifiable information to us.
However, if you do not provide certain information, you may be unable to create
an account, complete an actor profile or submit user generated content, so your
ability to use the Website and/or App may be limited. For example, if you do not
provide your gender, birthday, hair/eye color, height, and weight you will be
unable to create an actor profile.
We may collect usage information anytime you view and/or interact with our Website or App or their pages, features and functionality. For example, we may collect your IP address, browser type, operating system version, and information regarding your browsing activities (e.g., information about the website that you visit before or after visiting the Website) and geographic location.
This Website and App may also use "cookies" and other technologies to recognize users, customize their experience or serve advertisements. A cookie is a small text file that a website’s server places on a user's computer, mobile phone or other device. The cookie transmits information back to the website’s server about the browsing activities of the user on the site. This includes information such as pages and content viewed, the time and duration of visits and whether a computer user clicked on an advertisement. Cookies also can be used to recognize users and maintain data related to a particular individual, including passwords. In some contexts, such as where a number of separate websites participate in a network, cookies can be used to track a user across different sites. Cookies are used as a standard practice by many sites. If you would prefer not to accept cookies from our Website or App or any other website, you can modify the settings on your web browser. You may refer to your browser's online help feature or user manual for instructions on how to do this. If you refuse to accept cookies, it is possible that some portions of the Website or App may not function as intended.
How do you respond to “do not track” signals?
We do not respond to “do not track” signals.
Will my or my child’s information be publicly available?
If you or your child create an actor profile and/or submit user generated
content to us, certain personally identifiable information may be posted on the
Website and App for other registered users to view. For example, if your or your
child’s user generated content is selected by SceneBot, it will be posted
to the Website and App for other registered users of the Website and App to
view, along with your or your child’s first name, last name initial, and
Actor profiles will always be available to SceneBot, Inc. (including its officers and employees). If you are under the age of 13, your actor profile will also be available to your parent or legal guardian.
If your or your child’s user generated content is chosen to be shown on the Website and App, and/or you have upgraded to a PRO Account, your and your child’s actor profile may also be available to casting directors, agents, and talent managers, including those listed on our “who’s who” page. The disclosure of such information to these individuals/entities is consistent with industry standard practice for actors seeking representation as a professional actor. For users under the age of 13, all inquiries regarding the child for the purpose of an audition or representation will be directed to the contact information provided by the parent/guardian during registration.
How else do you disclose and use information collected via the Website and App?
We may use personally identifiable information for the purpose for which it
includes customer account creation, customer support services, and other back
office activities of SceneBot.
We may disclose personally identifiable information to third party advertisers or sponsors. In those cases, we will not provide individually identifiable information. Instead, we may disclose aggregate gender, age, and region (city/state) information.
We may also share information with third parties who provide services to us or on our behalf. For example, third parties who host the Website/App may have access to your personally identifiable information.
For parents and guardians who are registering with the Website/App in order
to create a child account, we may disclose certain personally identifiable
information (e.g., name, address, phone number, date of birth and the last four
digits of your social security number) to a third party service provider to
verify your identity.
We use usage information to help us run and maintain our Website and App, customize the visitor’s experience, study traffic patterns, and generally learn about the usage of the Website and App.
We might sell or buy subsidiaries, or business units. In such transactions, personally identifiable information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event that our assets are sold, personally identifiable information may be one of the transferred assets.
What if I don’t want you to make any further collection or use of my child’s information?
If you are a parent/guardian and do not want us to make any further collection or use of your child’s personally identifiable information, you can delete your child’s account. If you delete your child’s account, we will delete your child’s personally identifiable information from our records and will not make any further use of such information.
You may take either action via the User Account screen.
How can I review information that you collect about me and/or my child?
If you would like to review and/or request changes to any of your or your child’s personally identifiable information collected through the Website or App, you may log in to your account with your user name and password and make any necessary changes to your account or your child’s account.
Is the Website and App secure?
Information transmitted on the Internet and/or stored on systems attached to the Internet is not 100% secure. As a result, we do not ensure, warrant or guarantee the security or integrity of such information. We will not be responsible for disclosure of any information due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized acts of third parties.
You help to maintain the security of your personally identifiable information stored in our systems by keeping your username and password confidential and protecting against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Please use a strong password to protect against unauthorized access to your account. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
