Voice is considered a biometric personal data and protected by legislation in many countries worldwide.
Data privacy laws are often based on the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which imposes strict obligations for storing and processing personal data.
GDPR applies to companies operating and/or subcontracting in the EU, who are storing, processing and/or sharing personal data.
Some obligations include: identification, security, solicitation of consent of use 100% independent of work contracts, consent recording & renewal, processing of modification, rectification, and deletion requests, dubbing actors accessibility to personal data upon request…
Everyone involved in a dubbing project is responsible for ensuring their own GDPR compliance along with that of their partners.
One weak link – subcontractors included – not processing voice data in compliance with GDPR puts the final client and all casting stakeholders at risk of fines, up to €20M or 4% of global revenues
Ensure the compliance of your organisation – Your clients count on it
While there are a couple of international dubbing groups with studios worldwide, most companies subcontract post-production studios in each territory to manage localised dubbing logistics for projects.
Often, contracted local studios will then contract voice directors.
Voice samples are then shared between the entire productino chain (from voice director to final client) and often saved for future projects.
Unfortunately, most of the saved recordings are not processed respecting privacy laws.
Voice actor specifications vary drastically from project to project.
Established dubbing studios and voice directors have elaborate voice databases.
Most DPOs and legal departments are unaware these personal data collection risks even exist in their organisations.
