EXAMPLES OF TRACKING TOOLS
Small graphic images or other web programming code called web beacons (also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) may be included in our web pages and messages. Web beacons may be invisible to you, but any electronic image or other web programming code inserted into a web page or e-mail can act as a web beacon. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes including, without limitation, to count visitors to our Services, to monitor how users navigate the Services, to count how many sent e-mails were actually opened, or to count how many particular articles or links were actually viewed.
An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Services, such as the links you click on. The code downloads temporarily onto the device you use to access Services from our web server or third-party service provider. It is active only while you are connected to the Services, and is deactivated or deleted after that.
We may use HTML5 in some of our Services, including in our mobile website. HTML5 has browser web storage that does not rely on traditional browser cookies. Like Flash cookies, HTML5 cookies are not stored in a browser “cookies” file and, like Flash cookies, can be used to track users across websites. To our knowledge, there is currently no known way for a user of a mobile device to remove HTML5 tracking and storage.
E-tags, Cache Browsers, and Web Logs
Like most standard website servers, we log IP addresses (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet) and device identifier to improve security, analyze trends, and administer the Services.

This information may include the browser you are using, the Internet address from which you linked to our Services, the operating system of your computer, the unique IP address of the computer or device identifier of the mobile device that you used to access our Services, and usage and browsing habits. We use this information in the aggregate to gauge the effectiveness, usage, and popularity of our Services, track information for statistical purposes, help diagnose and troubleshoot server malfunctions, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information. We may also use individual information we collect through web logs to send you targeted offers and other communications.

CN uses a third party to process its credit card payment transactions.

Data Controller and Data Processor
Casting Networks are the Controller of our Visitors’ and Customers’ Personal Information; we are the Processor of any Personal Information contained in Customer Data, and of Applicant Data processed on behalf of our Customer.
Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the GDPR, typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing Personal Information : the “Data Controller” (under the CCPA the “business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “Data Processor” (under the CCPA the “service provider”, who processes the data on behalf of the Data Controller. Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.
If any of our Users or Applicants upload or submit Customer Data or other content to our Services which includes Personal Information (e.g., by submitting their colleagues’ or team members’ contact details to one of their Profiles), such data will only be processed by Casting Networks on behalf of our Customer, which is the Controller of the respective Account, along with all other Applicant Data and User processed on such Customer’s behalf.
In such instances, our Customer shall be deemed the “Data Controller” of such data, and Casting Networks will process such data on the Customer’s behalf, as its “Data Processor”, in accordance with its reasonable instructions, subject to our Terms, our Data Processing Agreement with such Customer (to the extent applicable) and other commercial agreements. Cast It Reach’s Service Providers shall act as designated Sub-Processors in these instances. The Customer will be responsible for meeting any legal requirements applicable to Data Controllers (such as establishing a legal basis for processing and responding to Data Subject Rights requests concerning the data they control).
