Privacy Policy


Effective May 9, 2024


1. Introduction 

This casting widget (“Widget”) is operated by Cast It Reach on behalf of FremantleMedia North America, Inc. ("FMNA") and Maidmetal LTD. (“Maidmetal”), to gather Online Auditions (“Services”) in connection with Season 20 of the television program, AMERICA’S GOT TALENT®. 

The Widget and the Services (as defined below) are for a general audience and are not targeted to children.  Widget operators do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 14 years of age.  

This Privacy Policy applies to all "users," including both those who use some of the Services without being registered or subscribing to Services and those who have subscribed to one or more Service(s), and/or have registered with the Widget to create a profile and/or upload an Online Audition (collectively "Auditioner"). This Privacy Policy describes the collection and use of users' personal information (e.g., information that identifies a specific person, such as full name or email address) where that information is not otherwise publicly available on the Services. We also provide information on the Widget's Privacy Settings and describe generally the practices for handling non-personally identifiable information (e.g., interests, demographics and site usage) to the extent such information is associated with a particular user or user account. 

2. Submission and collection of information on the services 

User Submitted Information 

Registration Information is the information that Auditioners must provide at registration in order to create a profile, upload an audition video and/or otherwise communicate in connection with the Online Audition(s) (also called an "Account"), such as display name, email address, and date of birth. If the individual wishing to audition is under the age of 18 (a “Minor”), a parent or legal guardian must establish an account in their own name. 

Third Party Information and Content. If you access the Widget or Services through a third-party connection or log-in, your user submitted information may also include your user ID and/or user name associated with that third-party service, any information/content you have permitted the third party to share with the Services, and any information you have made public in connection with that third-party service (collectively, "Third Party Information and Content"). Third Party Information and Content obtained in this manner will be governed by this Privacy Policy. 

Widget collected Information 

Widget Activity Information. When users access the Widget or Services, certain non-personally identifiable information may be collected by Cast It Reach about those visits. For example, in order to permit your connection to the Widget, Cast It Reach servers receive and record information about your computer and browser, including potentially your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the Widget from a mobile or other device, a unique device identifier will be assigned to that device or other transactional information for that device in order to serve content to it. Cookies and other tracking technologies (including browser cookies, pixels, beacons, and Adobe Flash technology including cookies), which are comprised of small bits of data that often include an anonymous unique identifier, may also be used to identify you and/or request that a parent/legal guardian submit information on your behalf. Websites send this data to your browser when you first request a web page and then store the data on your computer so the website can access information when you make subsequent requests for pages from that site. Acting on behalf of FMNA and/or Maidmetal, Cast It Reach may also use cookies and similar tools to relate your use of the Widget to personal information obtained from you or a reputable third party. 

Third parties that support the Widget by serving advertisements or providing services, such as allowing users to share content or tracking aggregate site usage statistics, may also use these technologies to collect similar information. We do not control these third-party technologies and their use is governed by the privacy policies of third parties using such technologies. For more information about third-party ad networks that use these technologies, see

Third Parties. To improve the quality of the Widget, third parties may supplement the information collected as a result of the Services.

In the event the last email address you provided as a result of signing up for the Service is not valid or is not capable of delivering the notice to you, dispatch of an email containing the notice to that e-mail address shall nonetheless constitute effective notice. 

Location of Data. The Widget is hosted in the United States. If you are a user located outside the United States, you understand and consent to having any personal information you provide transferred to, processed and stored in the United States and other countries where data protection and other privacy laws may not offer the same level of protection as those in your jurisdiction, such as the European Union. This includes the use of cookies and other tracking technologies as described above. As a result, please read this Privacy Policy with care. 

Linked Websites or Services. The Services may also be linked to sites or services operated by FMNA, Maidmetal, and/or their affiliates ("Affiliated Companies") or third parties, and they may carry advertisements or offer content, functionality, games, newsletters, contests or sweepstakes or applications developed and maintained by third parties, including the online store. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of any such third parties, and once you leave the Widget via a link, enable a third-party service, or click an advertisement, you should check the applicable privacy policy of the third-party site.

To protect the rights of Cast It Reach, FMNA, and/or Maidmetal. There may be instances when Cast It Reach, FMNA, and/or Maidmetal may disclose user information without providing notice or choice, including situations where there is a good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to: (i) protect or defend the legal rights or property of Cast It Reach, FMNA, Maidmetal, Affiliated Companies or their employees, agents and contractors (including enforcement of any agreements); (ii) protect the safety and security of users of the Widget or Auditioners of the public; (iii) protect against fraud or for risk management purposes; or (iv) comply with the law or legal process.
