We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. We want you to feel confident using our website to transact business. However, information security depends also on users. Users should take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY LAW

On January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) goes into effect. The CCPA offers significant new data privacy protections to California residents. Because it cares about your privacy, Kidscasting.com has chosen to conform its data privacy policy and practices to the requirements of the new California law now, even before it has taken effect.

In addition to the disclosure of our collection, use and protection of your personal information, and the choices and rights you have with respect to that personal information, set forth elsewhere in this privacy policy, you are entitled to these further disclosures and rights under the CCPA:

Right to Request Information about Your Personal Information

Free of charge, you have the right to request for the last 12 months, and receive within 45 days (and in any event no more than 90 days:

  1. The categories of personal information we have collected about you.
  2. The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
  3. The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your personal information.
  4. The categories of third parties with whom we share your personal information.
  5. The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you.

We must provide this information to you in a readily useable format that allows you to easily send the information to and between other entities, thus allowing you to “port” or move your personal information from us to another company offering similar services.

Under the CCPA, “Personal Information” includes, but is not limited to, identifiers such as a real name, alias, postal address, unique personal identifier (including cookies), online identifier Internet Protocol address, email address, account name, social security number, driver’s license number, passport number, or other similar identifiers.

In the last 12 months, we have collected these categories of personal information from consumers:

In the last 12 months, we have sold these categories of personal information about consumers:

In the last 12 months, we have disclosed these categories of personal information about consumers for a business purpose:

Right to Request Deletion of Your Personal Data

Free of charge, you have the right to request deletion of your personal information that we have collected from you. We shall comply with that request by deleting all of your personal information from our records and directing any service providers to delete your personal information from their records.

Some exceptions do exist to our duty to delete your personal information at your request. These are when your personal information may be needed to:

Right to Disclosure of Categories of Personal Information Sold

Free of charge, you have the right to request for the last 12 months, and receive within 45 days later, the following information about the sale of your personal information:

Right to Request that Personal Data Not be Sold

Free of charge, you have the right to opt out of the sale of your personal information. “Sale” means “selling, renting, releasing, disclosing, disseminating, making available, transferring, or otherwise communicating” your personal information by us to another business or a third party “for monetary or other valuable consideration.”

To make it easy for you to exercise your opt out rights, pursuant to the CCPA, we provide a link on the homepage of www.kidscasting.com, titled “Do Not Sell My Personal Information” to enable you to opt out of the sale of your personal information.

If and after you have directed that we not sell your personal information, we are prohibited from selling it until and unless you later expressly authorize us to sell your personal information.

The CCPA prohibits the sale of personal information of consumers under 16 years of age without express approval from the minor (between ages 13 and 16) or the minor’s parent or guardian (if under 13 years of age). Kidscasting.com does not knowingly collect from minors, much less sell, personal information of individuals under the age of 18 (see “Children’s Privacy” below). Kidscasting.com may collect certain personal information about minors from their parent or guardian subscribers to the service, solely for the purpose, and only as needed, to fulfill the casting services that the Site offers to minors.

Right to Receive Equal Service and Pricing, Even if Exercising Your Privacy Rights

Pursuant to the CCPA, we cannot and will not discriminate against or penalize you for exercising your privacy rights. We will not:

  1. Charge different prices for our service;
  2. Provide a different level or quality of service to you;
  3. Suggest that you receive a different price for, or a different level or quality of, our service;

Provided, however, the CCPA does not prohibit differences in prices, levels or quality of service offered to users if the difference is reasonably related to the value provided to the consumer by the consumer’s data.

How to Make Requests Regarding Your Personal Information

To request information about your personal information, to delete your personal information, to direct us not to sell your personal information, or for disclosure of the types of your personal information that we may sell, contact us by:

We provide areas on our Site where you can post information about yourself and others and communicate with others or upload content such as photographs. Such postings are governed by our Terms of Use. In addition, such postings may appear on other websites or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting. Also, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly viewable web pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control wo reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information.

Children's privacy

Although the Site is a general audience site, we restrict the use of our service to individuals age 18 and above. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18. The only personal information we knowingly collect about minors is that which is received from their parent or guardian subscribers, and is collected and used solely for the purpose, and only as needed, of enabling us to fulfill the casting services we offer to minors. No information should be submitted through the Site by individuals under eighteen 18 years of age. We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate and monitor the interactive activities of their children.

No Rights of Third Parties

This Privacy Policy does not create rights enforceable by third parties or require disclosure of any personal information relating to users of the Site.
