DancePlug Inc. ("us", "we" or "DancePlug") values and respects your privacy. This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you use or access danceplug.com (the "Site") or DancePlug's Services (the "Services"), and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information. Terms not defined in this policy are defined in the Terms of Use.

By viewing any Content or otherwise using the Services, whether you are a subscriber, other registered user, or a visitor who has not subscribed to or registered for the Services, you consent to the collection and use of information from or about you as explained in this Privacy Policy. If you do not consent to the collection and use of information from or about you in accordance with this Privacy Policy, then you may not use the Services.

From time to time, we may revise this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in the law or the Services or for other reasons. If we make a material change to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you by posting a notice on the Site. Your continued use of the Services or the Site after any such changes constitutes your acceptance of the new Policy Privacy. It is therefore important that you review this page regularly to ensure you are updated as to any changes.

1. Collection of Information

When you visit DancePlug you provide us with two types of information: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.

1.1. Personal Information

We collect information you provide to us, when registering or making a purchase on the Site, signing up to our newsletter, filling out your online profile or a survey, or contacting us. Personal Information may include your name, birth date, gender, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information, and other information you knowingly choose to disclose to us.

1.2. Non-Personal Information

We collect information when you interact with our Site, use our Services, or view DancePlug advertising outside of the Site. This information includes IP address, user data, and browser type. This information is gathered for all DancePlug visitors.

When you use DancePlug, you may set up your talent profile, form relationships, send messages, perform searches and queries, and transmit information through various channels. We collect this information so that we can provide you the service and offer personalized features. In most cases, we retain it so that, for instance, you can return to view prior messages you have sent or easily see your friend list. When you update information, we may keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time to enable reversion to the prior version of that information.

1.3. Cookies

In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies". A cookie is a piece of data stored on the User's computer tied to information about the User. We use session ID cookies to confirm that Users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the User closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you come back to the Site. You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, block third party cookies or block all cookies. However, by blocking all cookies you may not have access to certain features on the Services.

In order to use the Site, Users must accept cookies. Users will be prompted at the beginning of their session to accept cookies. Users may withdraw consent by deleting their cookies from their browser settings at any time.

2. Use of Information Obtained by DancePlug

We use information to provide, analyze, administer, improve and personalize our Services, to process your registration, your orders and your payments, and to communicate with you on these and other topics. For example, we use information in the following ways:

  • To provide you with our Services
  • To provide you with customer support and respond to your requests
  • To process transactions
  • To send you notices about your account and subscriptions (including transactions, expiration, and renewals)
  • To administer a contest, promotion, or other site feature
  • To receive feedback and understand our Users better in order to improve our Services
  • To send periodic emails and announcements. Please note you may unsubscribe from these emails
  • To monitor the safety and security of the Backstage service and casting platform
  • To protect you and our rights, and prevent potentially illegal or harmful activities, including fraud
  • To comply with applicable laws, regulations, and legal process.

We keep track of your interactions with us, including but not limited to your site activity, payment history and correspondence. We use this information for such purposes as personalizing the site to better reflect particular interests, helping us quickly and efficiently respond to inquiries and requests and otherwise enhancing our service offering for our customers.

3. Sharing Your Information

3.1. Public Talent Profile

When you register or re-register with DancePlug, you have the option of creating a talent profile. Your profile information, such as your name, email and photo, are displayed to people in the networks specified in your privacy settings to enable you to connect with other Users and non-users of DancePlug. Your talent profile will be publicly discoverable across the world wide web. If you do not wish for your profile to be found online, please contact us.

3.2. Forums and Commenting

While using the Services and Site, you will have opportunities to post comments or other personal information in public forums. Please understand that when you post such information, it is made public and is not subject to this policy.

3.3. Posting A Listing

When a User posts an audition, job, event or business listing, the notice may contain personally identifiable information. By posting a listing on DancePlug, you consent to share the contents of the listing with other DancePlug users, as well as make the contents of your listing publicly discoverable across the world wide web.

3.4. When You Share Information With Third Parties

You may share your data with other parties designated by you. For example, when you send your talent profile to another User or an entity outside of the DancePlug network, or when applying for an audition, you may share personally identifiable data with the recipient of your application.

You post User Content (as defined in the DancePlug Terms of Use) on the Site at your own risk. Although we allow you to set privacy options that limit access to your pages, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We cannot control the actions of other Users with whom you may choose to share your pages and information. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that User Content you post on the Site will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other Users have copied or stored your User Content.

Any improper collection or misuse of information provided on DancePlug is a violation of the DancePlug Terms of Use and should be reported.

3.5. When DancePlug Shares Information With Third Parties

Except as otherwise disclosed to you, we will not sell, rent or disclose your personal information to third parties without notifying you of our intent to share the personal information in advance and giving you an opportunity to prevent your personal information from being shared. We share your information with third parties only in limited circumstances where we believe such sharing is (i) reasonably necessary to offer the service, (ii) legally required or, (iii) permitted by you.

We share and give access to personal information to our employees and agents in the course of operating our businesses. For example for customer service.

We use other trusted companies, agents or contractors to perform services on our behalf. For example, we have partnered with other companies to process credit card transactions, analyze and enhance data, including customers' interaction with our site, and process consumer surveys. In the course of providing such services, these other companies may have access to your personal information. These companies are not permitted to use your personal information except for the purpose of providing the services we request of them.

We may be required to disclose user information pursuant to lawful requests, such as subpoenas or court orders, or in compliance with applicable laws. We do not reveal information until we have a good faith belief that an information request by law enforcement or private litigants meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to comply with law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Services or using the DancePlug name, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.

If the ownership of all or substantially all of the DancePlug business, or individual business units owned by DancePlug, Inc., were to change, your user information may be transferred to the new owner so the service can continue operations. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.

3.6. Links

The Site contains links to sites operated by third parties whose policies regarding the handling of personal information may differ from ours. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by DancePlug.

3.7. Third Party Advertising

Advertisements that appear on the Site are sometimes delivered (or "served") directly to users by third party advertisers. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. These third party advertisers may also download cookies to your computer, or use other technologies such as JavaScript and "web beacons" (also known as "1x1 gifs") to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Doing this allows the advertising network to recognize your computer each time they send you an advertisement in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. In this way, they may compile information about where individuals using your computer or browser saw their advertisements and determine which advertisements are clicked. DancePlug does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by the third party advertisers. Third party advertisers have no access to your contact information stored on DancePlug unless you choose to share it with them.

This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by DancePlug and does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies by any of its advertisers.

4. Under Age

No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on DancePlug. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us.

4.2. Children Between the Ages of 13 and 18

7. Security

DancePlug takes information security very seriously and uses reasonable administrative, technical and managerial measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access.

We store your email address in an encrypted form.

You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account information and for restricting access to your computer or mobile device through which you access your DancePlug account. Users of public or shared computers or unprotected mobile devices should log out at the completion of each visit to the Site.

Unfortunately, no security system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and cannot assume liability for improper access to it. By using the Site, or providing personal information to us through any means, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of this site.
