PRIVACY POLICY

Effective Date: April 26, 2016

Voicebank.net, Inc., located at 9190 Olympic Blvd Suite #318, Beverly Hills, CA 90212 (“Voicebank”, “VB”, “us", “our”, or "we”) has developed this Privacy Policy, which details important information regarding the use and disclosure of user information collected on our family of websites that link to this Privacy Policy, and any successor sites (collectively the “Sites”), as well as our other related mobile websites, mobile applications, services, tools, and other interactive properties that link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “VB Applications”). This policy applies solely to the VB Applications and does not apply to any other Voicebank website or application where this policy is not posted. Voicebank provides this Privacy Policy to help you make an informed decision about whether to use or continue using the services accessed through its VB Applications (collectively, “Services”).

I. ACCEPTANCE OF PRIVACY POLICY AND SPECIAL NOTICES

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and subject to the Terms of Use found here (“Terms”). Each time that you access or use the VB Applications, you signify that you agree to be bound by the Terms and this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the Terms and the terms of this Privacy Policy, you must discontinue accessing the Services available through the VB Applications. The VB Applications and related Services provide a range of content hosting and communication services to actors, models, dancers, voiceover actors and other artists (collectively, “Talent”), connecting Talent with agents and managers (“Talent Representatives”), casting directors (“Casting Directors”), and other professionals rendering services in motion picture, theatrical, radio, television and other entertainment enterprises (collectively, “Industry Professionals”).

Special Notice To Talent

There are practical considerations relating to the need for Industry Professionals to review certain personal information and to contact Talent for casting purposes. By registering and creating a personal or represented profile (“Profile”) which will be accessible on the VB Applications, you understand that you are affirmatively choosing to provide and post personal information about yourself including, but not limited to, images, video, audio, your real and/or stage name, sizes and stats, skills, gender, ethnical appearance, address, and phone number. You further acknowledge and agree that such personal information may be accessible to other registered members of the Voicebank Services, who may be able to personally identify and locate you, and that you are aware of any and all risks inherent in so doing. Your information may also be viewable outside of the VB Applications via web search engines, which are outside of our control.

Special Note About Minors

We are very concerned about the safety and privacy of all of our members, particularly individuals under the age of 18 (“Minors”). Minors may not open an account or create a Profile. Any minor must be represented by an authorized Talent Representative, or by a parent or legal guardian who has registered on their behalf and who maintains the Profile on their behalf (the “Registering Adult”). We reserve the right at any time to require verification of a Registering Adult and evidence of the Registering Adult’s relationship with any Minor. If we become aware that an account has been established for a Minor without a Registering Adult’s permission and supervision, we will take steps to terminate the account and remove any corresponding information.

Privacy Policy Updates

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any revisions to our Privacy Policy will be posted here with the “Effective Date” identified at the top of the policy. Any revised policy will supersede and replace previous privacy policies, effective as of the date on which it is posted. You should check the Sites frequently for updates. We reserve the right to require that you affirmatively accept any updated privacy policy, but your use of the VB Applications after any revised Privacy Policy has been posted represents and confirms your consent and agreement to all such changes. If you do not agree to any of the new terms, please discontinue using the VB Applications.

II. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

If you (or someone you have expressly authorized to act on your behalf such as your Talent Representative, or, if you are under 18, the Registering Adult) create a Profile or purchase any paid services, you choose to give us your personal information.

APPENDIX

1. Tracking Technologies We May Use

Cookies

A cookie is a data file placed on a device when it is used to visit the Sites. We use cookies to collect information for record keeping purposes and to make it easier to navigate the Sites. Cookies are stored on users’ hard drives. We use both “session ID cookies” and “persistent cookies.” Session ID cookies are used to store information while a user is logged into the Sites and expire when the user closes his/her browser. Persistent cookies are used to make tasks like logging into the Sites easier for returning users by remembering a user’s login information. Persistent cookies stay on a user’s hard drive from one session to the next. Flash cookies, known as local shared objects, are data files placed on a Device via the Adobe Flash plug-in that may be built into or downloaded by you to your Device to personalize your visit. Our third-party service providers also may use Flash cookies to collect and store information. Flash cookies are different from standard browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored. Cookies may be used for many purposes, including, without limitation, remembering you and your preferences and tracking your visits to our web pages. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a persistent or session cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off such cookies through your browser settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

Web Beacons/GIFS

Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as 1×1 GIF, tracking pixel, pixel tag, or clear GIF) may be included in our web pages and messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to our Sites, to monitor how users navigate the Sites, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.

Embedded Scripts

An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the VB Applications, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded from our web servers or a third party service provider onto the device you use to access the VB Applications and, is active only while you are connected to the Sites. The embedded script is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

E-tags, Browser Caching, and Web Logs

Like most standard web servers, our servers may log the IP address (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet) of the computer, or the device identifier of the mobile device that you used to access the VB Applications in order to improve security, analyze trends and administer the VB Applications. We may also track your movement within the VB Applications to gauge your usage and browsing habits, and gather other information such as the browser you are using, the Internet address from which you linked to our VB Applications, and the operating system of your computer. We use this information in the aggregate to:  gauge the effectiveness, usage, and popularity of the VB Applications  track information for statistical purposes  help diagnose and troubleshoot server malfunctions  analyze trends  track user movement  gather broad demographic information We may also use individual information we collect through web logs to send you targeted offers and other communications.

HTML5

We use HTML5 in some of our applications, including in our mobile applications for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. HTML5 has browser web storage that does not rely on traditional browser cookies. Like Flash cookies, HTML5 cookies are not stored in a browser “cookies” file and, like Flash cookies, can be used to track users across websites. To our knowledge, there is currently no known way for a user of a mobile device to remove HTML5 tracking and storage.
