Kassting, Inc. (“Kassting”, “we”, “us” or “our”), want you to be familiar with how we collect, use and disclose information from and about you. When you respond to our application forms to enable us to consider you for roles in our various projects, we collect certain information relating to you. The sections below describe what kind of information we collect and what we do with this information.
The Kassting Services are for a general audience and are not targeted to children.
2. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION
Kassting and our service providers may collect the following information from and about you:
Registration Information is the information you submit to register for a Kassting Service, for example, to apply to take part in a television program, to register for a service, to create an account, post comments, receive a newsletter, or enter a contest or sweepstakes. Registration Information may include, for example, name, email address, gender, zip code and birthday (“Personal Information and Demographic Information”). Please be aware that we may retain any Personal Information and Demographic Information that you submit to us for as long as we wish, whether in connection with the program for which you are submitting an application form or in connection with other programs for which we believe you may be a good candidate to audition.
Public Information and Posts consist of comments, content or registration details that you post to the Kassting Services and the information about you that accompanies those posts, content or forms, which may include a name, email, user name, comments, likes, status, profile information and picture.
Activity Information. When you access and interact with the Kassting Services, we may collect certain information about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the Kassting Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the Kassting Services from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device, geolocation data, or other transactional information for that device. At this time, we do not respond to browser "Do Not Track" signals, as we await the work of interested stakeholders and others to develop standards for how such signals should be interpreted.
Cookies and other tracking technologies (such as browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies) are comprised of small bits of data that often include a de-identified or anonymous unique identifier. Websites, apps and other services send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that service. These technologies may also be used to collect and store information about your usage of the Kassting Services, such as pages you have visited, content you have viewed, search queries you have run and advertisements you have seen.
Third parties that support the Kassting Services by serving advertisements or providing services, such as allowing you to share content or tracking aggregate Kassting Services usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information. Kassting does not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies. For more information about third-party advertising networks and similar entities that use these technologies, see http://www.aboutads.info/consumers, and to opt-out of such ad networks’ and services’ advertising practices, go to http://www.aboutads.info/choices.

6. WHAT ABOUT PRIVACY PROTECTIONS FOR CHILDREN?
We understand the importance of protecting children’s privacy in the interactive world.

If you are a child under 13 years of age and you would like to complete an application form, you must ask your parent or legal guardian to register you and provide your Personal Information and/or Demographic Information.
We encourage parents and guardians to spend time with their children online and to be fully familiar with any online services used by their children. In the event that we become aware that we have directly collected any Personal Information and/or Demographic Information from any child, we will dispose of that information in accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and other applicable laws and regulations. If you are a parent or guardian and you believe that your child under the age of 13 has provided us with information without your consent, please contact us at email@example.com, and we will take reasonable steps to ensure that such information is deleted from our files.
7. OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

We may also retain backup information related to your account on our servers for some time after cancelation for fraud detection or to comply with applicable law or our internal security policies. It is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information due to technical constraints, contractual, financial or legal requirements.
