Introduction

We are a talent agency. People use our services to find and be found for business opportunities. Our privacy policy applies to everyone (hirer and worker) who uses our services.

Why do we collect and process your personal data?

We need to collect and process some of your personal data to carry out job seeking on your behalf and fulfil our obligation as an agent.

Who do we share your personal data with?

We share the professional identities of our managed talent with potential hirers (casting directors, production companies, ad agencies etc). This also occurs in reverse. We may also share some of your data with service providers such as hosting and technology suppliers. However we will never use your data for profiling purposes.

Do we need a lawful basis to collect and process your personal data?

Yes. All companies must have a legitimate reason for collecting and processing your data. GDPR refers to this as the “lawful basis for processing” and sets out six different types of lawful basis. In our case, the main lawful bases allowing us to collect and process your data are ‘contractual’ and ‘legitimate interest.’

Who has access to the personal data that we hold?

Only authorised staff and IT system administrators have access to your data. Other parties, such as production companies, may have different procedure and safeguards in place when handling your data.

What staff training are we providing on data protection?

All our staff receive training to help them understand and implement the latest data protection rules and guidelines. They also take refresher training on data protection and other important topics as part of our ongoing development and competency procedures.

Do we back up our clients personal data? If so, then how often?

Yes, we back up our core data systems daily and store backed-up data both on and off site. We send the offsite backups to the Amazon S3 EU data centre. The transmission and storage of this data is encrypted.

What IT security do we have in place to protect our clients’ personal data while it’s being stored, transferred, or used by us?

Our computer network is password protected and secured using role based permissions, which means only staff with the correct authorisation can view and process client data. Remote access to our computer network is solely permitted through a system of multi-factor authentication.

How do we dispose of hardware and the storage media containing personal data?

We treat the disposal of all hardware and storage media with the utmost care, ensuring it is dealt with securely and responsibly. All printed documentation is cross shredded on site or destroyed by a trustedcontractor at a BS1517-accredited facility..

What procedure are in place to detect data security breaches?

We have 24/7 hardware and software monitoring, login and auditing for all core systems. Users are subject to policies which cover computing equipment use, acceptable use, remote working and travel, email use and password use.

How long do we keep your data?

We retain your personal data while your management contract is still in place with us and then contact information only, for 5 years after contract termination. This is to ensure you can receive residual payments from past jobs.
