Production & Media Professionals, Publishers & Advertisers:

Do you receive voice castings from partners?

Are your partners putting you at risk?

  • GDPR has imposed radical regulations for voice casting professionals.
  • Voice is a personal data and samples used for castings are subject to strict processing regulations for studios and production companies, as well as their clients who receive these samples to choose their voices.
  • One non-compliant link in the production workflow puts all stakeholders at risk — both financially and your brand reputation.

Is your organisation compliant?

Casting reception

If you receive voice samples by email, you must have compliance procedures in place for these personal data.

Data conservation

Do you delete samples after each project is completed? If kept, are they entered into compliance processing that respects GDPR regulations?

Can you guarantee your subcontractors compliance?

  • Your organisation’s responsibility could be engaged by their GDPR non-compliance.
  • All project stakeholders are legally responsible for ensuring the compliance of their partners and subcontractors.
  • Your subcontractors must be able to prove the GDPR compliance of their casting databases.

Is my organisation subject to GDPR?

Enforced since 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation imposes rules on the processing of EU citizens’ and residents’ personal data – whether it is shared in Europe, from Europe or Europe-inbound.

It applies to every public and private organisation – regardless of their size – processing personal data, and is not limited to any industry, sector or territory.

Is voice considered personal data?

Any information that can be used to identify a physical person, directly or indirectly is personal data (ie name, address, email, social security #, photo, DNA, fingerprints, etc).

Voice being biometric personal data protected by GDPR, voice-over and dubbing actors’ samples used for castings are subject to this regulation.
