Our Website may contain hyperlinks to third party websites.

Otherwise, we do not collect, use, store or otherwise process personal data about those website browsers who visit our public webpages.
When models register to create an account with our platform, we will collect and store the personal information you provide when completing the online registration form.
By clicking on "Join Now" and "I'm A Model", you will be directed to our secure online registration form where you are asked to provide the following initial personal data:
To complete the registration process, you will be asked for more extensive personal data such as a few of your portfolio images and recent headshot, financial details or proof of identity. Proof of identity may include a photo or scanned copy of a passport, driving licence or other government issued identification card that includes photo identification
Your proof of identity is necessary for us to check, to ensure accuracy of your details provided, as well as your age, your right to use our platform to work in certain territories and receive payments. Your financial details are necessary to receive payments, and they are securely stored and shared only with specified payment providers, such as Fire.com and stripe.com.
This profile is your online portfolio page based on which our agents and clients will determine whether you are a suitable candidate for their job briefs.
In addition to portfolio images and recently taken polaroids you will be asked to complete your profile with your recent body measurements and other important data, including:
You may also be asked to identify your ethnicity, as it is important for us to ensure we represent more ethnicities, and it is important for clients to find people of diverse backgrounds.
Please note that it is up to you to decide whether or not you want to provide any of the above information as we do not require its provision. Should you decide not to provide certain categories of data, this may impact on whether or not you will appear in search results that are generated to meet our clients’ requests. If you do not fill in all your basic measurements, you won’t be visible in search at all.
To ensure convenience and professionalism of our digital search for the clients, we have technology and / or appointed managers who curate all registered model profiles and assign criteria tags, such as ‘editorial’, ‘commercial’, ‘influencer’ and more. You may be asked to submit data to create or assign more tags to your profile from time to time. We reserve the right to assign certain tags to your profile - please read T&C for more information.
Our managers can move, crop and hide your images to improve their display to clients.
You can opt-in to allow your profile to be publicly displayed on our home page. However, If you are signed by iDAL under management agreement, you will be automatically displayed on our home page publicly.

This action will remove all information we have collected about you that you have provided to us through the Website, including any photographs uploaded, any measurements or other information entered into your profile form.

However, there may be occasions where they provide us with your personal data that you’ve shared with them. Examples of the types of personal data that we might receive from the social media providers includes:
Where we visit the social media pages of our registered talent, we do so on the basis that, as a business, we have a legitimate interest to periodically review our models' details which they make publicly available.
