Casting Coin, Inc (“Casting Coin,” “We,” “Us” or “Our”) is a software booking platform where artist providers in the fashion industry, such as photographers, models, hair and makeup artists, stylists, and fashion influencers, can feature their best work and get booked directly by businesses seeking their particular artist (the “Services”). The platform eliminates the need to use booking agents or referrals from friends and family, or search for assignments and/or artist in or from unreliable sources.

Collection and Use of Information
The Personal Information We Collect. This Policy applies to all information collected by or submitted to the Websites. We consider “personal information” to mean information about an identifiable individual. Although any member of the public can visit our Website, if you become a Member of our community, either as a provider of artist (“Provider”), or as a booker of artist (“Booker”; collectively, Providers and Bookers are “Members”), you will need to register as an active member. As part of the registration process, you will create an account and will be asked to provide a variety of information including, but not limited to, your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and information about you and/or your company. We may also collect billing information such as credit card numbers, and your personal financial information. Providers and Bookers set up personal profiles when they register. You will be asked to provide a user name when you register, provide a password, and create a personal profile. Profiles of Providers, including their photographs and biographical information that each Provider creates for his/her posting are publicly available and can be viewed by all visitors to the Site as well as Members. However, once a Booker books an appointment with a Provider, additional information may be exchanged directly between the Booker and Provider.
Once a fee is agreed upon the Booker pays 100% of the fee + 15% is held in escrow on Stripe until the job is successfully complete. Once successful completion is confirmed by both Provider and Booker the funds are released to the provider minus 25% which is released to Casting Coin, Inc as commission. Casting Coin does retains financial information of the Bookers and Providers in order to provide them with analytics on their dashboard.
IP Address. An IP (Internet Protocol) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your internet service provider when you log on. Your IP address is not linked to your Personal Information but Casting Coin does reserve the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals who threaten the Website or other users or visitors. IP addresses may also be used to help diagnose problems with the Website and to gather broad demographic information.
Third-Party Applications. Users currently cannot connect to the Website through social media apps such as Facebook or Instagram. However, Bookers and Providers may provide links in their Profiles that link to a social media feature.
Other Information. When you access the Websites, Casting Coin will automatically receive some information about your use of the service. The type of information that is automatically collected by Casting Coin includes such things as the date and time of access of the Site, the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer that you are using, the domain and host from which you access the Internet, your browser software and operating system, the referring website address, and the kinds of business activities you are engaged in while using the Website.

Casting Coin will also aggregate Personal Information and may use, share and disclose such aggregated Personal Information with the consent of Users and as permitted by law.

Do Not Track Signals
Certain web browsers provide users with an option by which you may have your browser send a “Do Not Track” signal to websites that you are visiting, advising the recipient websites that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. However, the way browsers communicate such “Do Not Track” signals is not yet uniform and, accordingly, our Site does not take any action in response to such signals. In the event a final standard is developed and accepted, we may reassess how we should respond to such signals.
