Privacy on enCAST
This page explains your privacy on this site – who can see what, in other words.
In simple English, we do not sell or give away any personal information you give us to any third party without your express permission. You decide what information you put on this site and you can put as much or as little as you wish.
Basic Privacy Information
By default your profile is viewable by the general public and search engines such as Google. You can, however, turn this off.
Setting your Privacy Levels
To change your privacy settings, click on MY PROFILE > ACCOUNT > PRIVACY
You will see this:
- EVERYONE – the profile can be viewed by visitors to the site and members of the site; it will be indexed by the search engines and anyone can find you here and view your profile.
- ONLY ME – only you and enCAST admin staff will be able to see your profile.
If you select ONLY ME then the profile will not be viewable on the site from then on; however it may take a few days for the link to your profile to disappear from Google and other search engines (any user clicking on the link, however, will be directed to the enCAST home page, however).
Note – if a casting agent contacts us directly looking for a particular type of actor and we feel that you might fit the bill then we will put your name forward to them regardless of these settings, along with your email address so they can contact you directly. If you would prefer we NEVER give your names to casting agents or directors then email us to opt out.
HIDE MY PROFILE FROM THE DIRECTORY
This determines if you show up when someone does an online search using the internal enCAST search system.
- NO – you will appear when someone does an online search through enCAST
- YES – you will not appear when someone does an online search through enCAST
WHO CAN SEND ME PRIVATE MESSAGES
This refers to the internal direct messaging system on enCAST.
- EVERYONE – anyone registered on enCAST can message you
- NOBODY – no one can message you
Note that only PRO ACTORS can initiate a conversation; free users on the site can respond to a message but are unable to start a conversation.
HIDE MY ONLINE STATUS
- NO – when you are online your profile picture (and link) will appear at the bottom of each page of the site and elsewhere.
- YES – your profile picture (and link) will not appear on the site
All posts on the forums are publicly viewable.
