This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the Terms. Portions of this Privacy Policy pertain to the STARS online sourcing area of the Site and other functionality available only to Rated ETA members in good standing

  • A. Kinds of Information Collected. Rated ETA collects information from you and about you and your use of the Site and uses that information in various ways.

    2. Traffic and Transaction Data. Our servers automatically recognize visitors’ domain names and IP addresses (the number assigned to computers on the Internet). Some limited personal information about you may also be collected in this process. The Site may also gather anonymous “traffic data” that does not personally identify you, but that data may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the services we offer. In addition, we may use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our site, or to display the content according to your preferences. Traffic and transaction information may also be shared with business partners and advertisers on an aggregate and anonymous basis.
    3. Cookies. From time to time, we may use the standard “cookies” feature of major browser applications that allows us to store a small piece of data on your computer about your visit to the Site. We do not set any personally identifiable information in cookies. For example, cookies help us learn which areas of our site are useful and which areas need improvement. You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you choose to disable this function, your experience at our Site may be diminished and some features may not work as they were intended. We may use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests, to save your password so you don’t have to re-enter it each time you visit the Site, or for other purposes. Promotions or advertisements may be displayed on the Site and may contain third party cookies. We do not have access to or control over information collected by outside advertisers on our Site.
    4. Contact Data. Rated ETA may collect your legal name, professional name, address, residence address, business contact information, representation and representation contact information, telephone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses, and other contact information. This information may be used by Rated ETA to communicate with you, including in regard to Rated ETA business including financial matters or otherwise, and may be used by Rated ETA for any purposes related to the business of Rated ETA, including mergers, acquisitions and other business transactions, including any dealings with other organizations whether or not related to Rated ETA. Rated ETA may also disclose this information to affiliates or to third parties it has contracted with to perform certain services on its behalf or to administer certain member benefits. Some site features allow you to opt-in to share your contact information with third parties.
    5. Contact Data. Rated ETA may collect your legal name, professional name, address, residence address, business contact information, representation and representation contact information, telephone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses, and other contact information.

    6. Resume Data. On the STARS online sourcing area of the Site, you may enter resume data about yourself, such as your name, address, professional experience, representation, special skills and training, physical characteristics, portrayable age range, head shots, sound clips, video clips, contact and representation information and other data relevant to your potential employment as an actor (“Resume Data”). Resume Data may also include data Rated ETA enters automatically from your member records and you are responsible for confirming the accuracy of such information. Your Resume Data will not be available for viewing by third parties until you register your STARS account and elect to make your Resume Data publicly viewable. Your Resume Data is specifically intended by you to be made available to third parties such as sourcing directors, producers, directors, agents and others and may be used by such parties to contact you and evaluate your potential employment. You hereby authorize Rated ETA to make all such disclosures of your Resume Data to third parties to present your features, qualifications, and experience for audition and employment opportunities. RATED ETA may disclose your Resume Data via the Internet, in published directories or by any other means. Recipients will be required to agree that they may use such information only to contact you for legitimate employment opportunities and to keep such information confidential and secure, but Rated ETA cannot make any guarantees of compliance by third parties and Rated ETA will not be responsible in any manner should such parties fail to comply with their agreements with Rated ETA, such as, for example, by publishing or re-distributing your Resume Data. Rated ETA is not responsible for ensuring the identity or motivations of such third parties and you release Rated ETA from any liability or responsibility for the actions or omissions by recipients of your Resume Data.
      NOTE: Information you post on STARS portion of the Site is not private and may be accessed and viewed by others. RATED ETA is not responsible for how such information is used by third parties. We recommend that you not disclose your home address, home telephone number or other personal information you may not want generally disclosed. Consider posting the contact information for your agent or manager instead. If you do not have an agent or manager, consider obtaining a post office box and an answering service.
    7. Return Email Addresses. When you send email inquiries to Rated ETA, your return email address is used to answer the email inquiry we receive. Rated ETA does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party unless specifically authorized by you in the email inquiry.
    8. Surveys. Rated ETA may periodically conduct surveys on the Site or engage others to conduct such surveys. Rated ETA encourages you to participate in these surveys because they provide Rated ETA with important information that helps Rated ETA to improve the types of services Rated ETA offers and how Rated ETA provides them. Participation in Rated ETA’s surveys is voluntary. Rated ETA may take the information Rated ETA receives from individuals responding to these surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses of other visitors to the site to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). Rated ETA may then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of Rated ETA’s services, and to develop new services and products and for other Rated ETA-related uses including but not limited to that this aggregated, non-personally identifying information may be shared with third parties. Rated ETA will take commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that any parties Rated ETA engages to conduct such surveys agree that they may not use such information except to provide it to Rated ETA and that they must keep such information confidential and secure but Rated ETA does not guarantee that such parties will do any of the foregoing and Rated ETA will not be responsible in any manner should such parties fail to comply with such agreement.
    9. Credit Card Data. When you make payments by credit card online, Rated ETA shall obtain your credit card and related information but such credit card and related information shall be used only to process your payment and shall not be retained by Rated ETA. Rated ETA may use third party services to process your credit card transaction.
    10. Eligibility Information. To access information about your eligibility to participate in Rated ETA, you will be required to post your first and last names, with necessary contact information. This information will be used by Rated ETA only for the limited purpose of communicating with you about your eligibility.
      Rated ETA follows generally accepted industry standards to protect personal information submitted to Rated ETA. We limit access to personal information about you to our employees and agents who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while Rated ETA strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, Rated ETA cannot guarantee its absolute security. Further, Rated ETA will not be liable for any inadvertent disclosure of any information by Rated ETA or any other parties in any manner inconsistent with the provisions in such paragraphs. Your use of the website and the STARS system confirms your understanding and represents your authorization to this privacy policy.
  • B. Advertisers and Other Parties.
    Through Rated ETA and the Site you may be introduced to a variety of other parties and sites including but not limited to vendors of goods and services, providers of other information and other websites. All of these parties are independent and not related to Rated ETA. The privacy policies and terms of use of these other parties and sites are not under Rated ETA’s control and may differ from Rated ETA’s privacy policy and terms of use. You should carefully review the applicable privacy policies and terms of use prior to accessing and using third party sites. The use of any information you may provide to any other party or site, or the use of “cookie” technology by any other party or site, will be governed by the privacy policy and terms of use of the operator of the other site that you are visiting.

Rated ETA - PRIVACY POLICY

IN REGARD TO CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13

This privacy policy in regard to children under the age of 13 (“Children’s Privacy Policy”) relates to the website at www.Rated ETA.com and all related domains – including but not limited to Rated ETA.net, and Rated ETA.org – (collectively, the “Site”). The Site is provided by (“Rated ETA,” or “ us”) located at 7433 Spout Springs Road, Suite 101-5 Flowery Branch, Georgia 30542. ATTENTION: Legal Department/Website Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, email: webmaster@Rated ETA.com and the name of Rated ETA’s agent is Cheri Marcelle 7433 Spout Springs Road, Suite 101-5, Flowery Branch, Georgia 30542. This Children’s Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the Terms. Portions of this Children’s Privacy Policy pertain to the STARS online sourcing area of the Site and other functionality available only to members in good standing.

Rated ETA encourages parents and legal guardians to become involved in the online activities of their children and to discuss the child’s use of the Internet and disclosure of information to any parties.

If you are under the age of 13, you must provide your parent’s or legal guardian’s email address or other contact information from which Rated ETA will obtain your parent’s or legal guardian’s consent before you give out any information on the Site. Please have your parent or guardian complete the Consent of Parent or Guardian form listed above and return it to us as instructed on the form.

Although the Site is not directed at children under the age of 13, we recognize that some of our members are under the age of 13 and that they may want to participate in all of the benefits Rated ETA offers via the Site. Full participation in the Site requires the collection and submission of personally identifiable data. Rather than restricting access to the Site to those 13 years of age or older, Rated ETA has opted to make its on line services available to all of its members. In doing so, Rated ETA desires to comply with the requirements of The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which was established by Congress to protect children’s online privacy. COPPA requires that Web site operators adhere to specific guidelines regarding the collection and handling of personally identifiable information about children under the age of 13. For more information about COPPA and your child’s rights to online privacy, visit the Children’s Privacy section of the FTC’s website here.

COPPA requires that website operators provide parents with certain information and obtain parental consent prior to permitting children under the age of 13 to access and use the Site.

  • A. What types of information do we collect about children?
    1. Children can view content on the public portion of the Site without any personal information being collected. We do not collect personal information from children unless they register for an account to access the sections of the Site requiring a login
    2. During our registration process we may collect a child’s first name and last name, parent's e-mail address, parent’s telephone number, child’s birth date, Rated ETA User ID, and password. The child is also asked to provide a password hint, in the event the password is lost or forgotten. We collect birth dates to validate the ages of our guests, including children. We may also collect a child’s e-mail address for the purpose of sending the child e-mail related to their activity with Rated ETA and on the Site. Note that all sites that are directed to children under 13 are prohibited by law from conditioning a child’s participation in an online activity on the child providing more personal information than is reasonably necessary.
    3. We may collect personal information from parents in order to allow kids to participate in certain features located on our Sites. These features may include job boards, instant message chatting, sending e-mail, posting and sending resumes, posting on message boards, interacting with third parties, and other similar activities. In the course of a child’s participation in these features, a child may also provide us additional information about himself or herself, such as the contents of his or her chat or message board postings. We also allow registered users to update their contact information or other Rated ETA records.
    4. If a parent allows us to collect personal information about their child, the child will have access to and be able to use the STARS online sourcing area of the Site. On STARS a child may enter resume data about himself or herself, such as name, address, professional experience, representation, special skills and training, physical characteristics, portrayable age range, head shots, sound clips, video clips, and other data relevant to his or her potential employment as an actor (“Resume Data”). Resume Data may also include data Rated ETA enters automatically from a child’s member records. We recommend that our members not disclose their home address, home telephone number or other personal information they may not want generally disclosed. This is of particular concern in the case of children. Consider posting the contact information for your child’s agent or manager or the parent’s office contact information, instead. If you do not have an agent or manager, consider obtaining a post office box and an answering service.
  • B. How do we use and share the personally identifiable information that we have collected about children?
    1. To personalize communications from Rated ETA to a child (such as news and updates), we may use the child’s name and mailing address or email address. We may collect a child’s e-mail address in order to send communications relating to his or her membership in Rated ETA. Rated ETA may, from time to time, contract with third parties to perform these communication services on its behalf and may disclose a child’s information to such third parties. In addition, personal information regarding a child may be disclosed in the course of a child’s participation in certain interactive features such as message boards.
    2. Registered users are able to update their contact information of record with Rated ETA. The information collected may include the child’s address(es), phone number(s), and email address(es). This includes the child’s primary contact information. Rated ETA may also, from time to time, disclose a child’s information to affiliates or to third parties it has contracted with to perform certain services on its behalf or to administer certain member benefits. Additionally, Rated ETA may disclose contact information listed in the profile for the benefit of the member. For example, Rated ETA may release information to talent agents, casting companies, casting directors, directors, or similar positions for the child’s evaluation for auditioning or employment.
    3. Rated ETA allows its members to pay their transition fees through the Site. Through this feature, Rated ETA collects certain information necessary to complete the transaction, including a credit card number, expiration date and security code and the billing address associated with the card. This information is shared with the third party credit card processor and is used solely for the purposes of completing the authorized transaction.
    4. The STARS portion of the site is intended to serve as a “job board.” On the STARS portion of the site, Resume Data is specifically intended to be made available to third parties such as sourcing directors, producers, directors, agents and others and may be used by such parties to contact the child and evaluate his or her potential employment. Such third parties can search and view Resume Data of participating members and members may communicate directly with such third parties, including transmission of resume data to them. You hereby authorize Rated ETA to make all such disclosures of the child’s Resume Data to third parties as stated above and contemplated in the STARS Member Guide. Third parties will be required to agree that they may use such information only to contact the child or his or her representative for legitimate employment opportunities and to keep such information confidential and secure, but Rated ETA cannot make any guarantees of compliance by third parties and Rated ETA will not be responsible in any manner should such parties fail to comply with such agreement.
    5. Except as otherwise disclosed in this Policy, we do not share any information about a child with any affiliated entity or with any third parties unless the disclosure is reasonably necessary: to comply with law, including, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena; to enforce our Terms of Use or site rules; or to protect the safety and security of our guests and our Web sites.
  • C. How do we notify and obtain consent from parents for the collection of information from a child? Before allowing a child to use a feature of our Web sites that might result in the disclosure of the child’s information to third parties on the Internet, we require the parent to consent in writing to this Children’s Privacy Policy, our Terms of Use and our more general Privacy Policy and to provide us with evidence confirming their identity, such as a copy of a valid driver’s license. This information is retained by us as evidence that we received parental consent.
  • D. How can parents access, change or delete personally identifiable information about their child ?
    1. At any time parents can refuse to permit us to collect further personal information from their child and can request that any personal information we have collected be deleted from our records. We use two methods to allow parents to access, change, or delete the personally identifiable information that we have collected from their child.
  • (a)A parent can access, change, or delete his or her child’s personal information by logging on to the child’s account located at Rated ETA.com. The parent will need to have their child’s member name and password. If your child has forgotten the password, click on ‘Forgot Password?” link on the home page and follow the instructions
  • (b) A parent can contact our customer service department to access, change, or delete the personal information that we have collected from his or her child by sending an e-mail to webhelp@Rated ETA.com. Please include the child’s name and the parent's e-mail address in the e-mail so that we can better assist you with your inquiry or request.
  • E. How will we notify parents if our Children’s Privacy Policy changes?
    We may amend our Children’s Privacy Policy at any time. We will provide parents notice by e-mail of any material changes in the way we intend to collect, use, and/or share a child’s personal information. Please note that, at all times, parents should update their personal information to provide us current e-mail addresses. We will apply material changes in our Children’s Privacy Policy only in conformance with applicable law, including any applicable provisions of COPPA that require parental consent.

CONSENT OF PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN

Certain features of the Rated ETA web site require the collection, use and disclosure of personally identifiable information. An example is our STARS feature, an on line sourcing site which permits our members to post their resumes which will be searchable by casting directors, directors and others seeking to hire talent.

As you may be aware, state and federal law require website operators to implement certain protections prior to granting children access to interactive functions of the STARS website. As part of those protections, website operators must obtain "verifiable parental consent" to the child's use of the website. In accordance with those protections, Rated ETA policy is to lock children under the age of 18 out of the portions of our Site that permit the collection or submission of personally identifiable data until we receive your written consent.

Accordingly, please review the parental consent form and full children's privacy policy, general privacy policy and terms of use for the Site and determine if you will provide your consent to your child's participation in the Site. If you have any questions, you may contact us at 770-325-0121.

Kindly complete, sign and date the parental consent form in the space provided and then either mail or fax it back to the Rated ETA at the address or fax number provided. Please also include a copy of your current valid driver's license.

After Rated ETA receives your letter, a Rated ETA representative may call you to confirm your identity and status as the parent or legal guardian of the indicated child and that you signed the letter.

Thank you for your cooperation.
