All members of Actors Studio and its affiliates are responsible for adhering to this policy at all times while under the instruction of Actors Studio and when entering into any engagements with data subjects who are under contractual agreements with Actors Studio.
All members of Actors Studio, affiliates, freelancers and contractors are to be informed of the data protection policies and procedures and are strongly encouraged to read the policy and training guides provided. Actors Studio require all its affiliates, freelancers and any third-party contractors to be compliant with the General Data Protection Regulations 2018, especially those acting as processors of personal data in any way and especially during the processing of personal data in connection with Actors Studio data subjects or its employees, under all lawful basis; including but not limited to contractual necessity or provided consent.
Personal identification information
There are two ways that we lawfully collect personal data (any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.)
We may collect personal identification information from data subjects (defined as an identifiable person who is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more factors specific to his physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity) by contractual necessity. For example; when a data subject enrols in a course or is involved in the process of filming. This personal data includes, names, contact telephone numbers and next of kin details and is used to distribute confidential call sheets and may be used in the event of an emergency. This information may be shared with other cast and crew members of the same production only, which may include third party freelancers and or companies. This information is necessary for the purposes of film production. The relevant personal details are used only for each production and are destroyed thereafter should the data subject not wish to consent to further correspondence.
We may use the information data subjects provide about themselves when placing an order only to provide service to that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to provide the service. We may also use the email address provided to send them information and updates pertaining to their order.
We may also collect personal data in the form of consent which is provided in the form of an online form. The information collected by data subjects includes, names, email addresses and possibly telephone numbers. This information is used to keep data subjects informed about courses, contests, casting roles, events and various business-related marketing, to receive about topics we think will be of interest to them and any other activities, services, features or resources we make available. Data subjects are informed as such.
Data subjects are provided with the option to consent when registering on the site, placing an order or subscribing to the newsletter.
Consent should be informed and made available in clear language without the use of jargon. All data subjects are provided with the option to opt-out of giving their consent at any time and may do so through unsubscribing from the newsletter by clicking the link. We include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email. Data subjects may also request to opt-out by writing an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Actors Studio makes use of the e-shot programme Mailchimp, which enables the tracking of subscribers to ensure that data subjects who have opted-out do not receive further correspondence without their consent.
Data subjects who have opted out have the right to be forgotten and all information pertaining to the relevant data subjects will be deleted with the only exception being to keep track of the subjects not to contact.
The personal data collected by Actors Studio is made available to data subjects at any time without reimbursement. Only relevant personal data will be collected and kept to a minimum. Any excessive data will be deleted.
Sensitive data (Definition under the GDPR: data consisting of racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, data concerning health or data concerning a natural person’s sex life or sexual orientation) is only collected by Actors Studio in the case of contractual necessity which may be in the form of a Resume or personal details provided by a data subject for production and casting purposes. This data is not used outside of the production process for any reason whatsoever. Data subjects may be asked if they would like us to store this data for the purposes of possible future production requirements.
In the event of this, the data subject will be asked to provide consent.
Actors Studio aims to only retain the necessary information required to perform contractual obligations. Any personal data that has not been consented will be deleted unless otherwise indicated for future legislative reasons or regulatory requirements that prevent its deletion.
