It is the goal of ModelScouts.com to present information and provide opportunities to aspiring models who wish to submit their photos to modeling agents and scouts in a safe environment, and at the same time, protect their privacy.

The following is a summary of the various ways we treat the information you provide us while using our site.

THE TYPE OF INFORMATION MODELSCOUTS.COM COLLECTS

ModelScouts.com only collects personally identifying information with your specific knowledge and consent.

All information submitted using our Registration Form or sent to our email addresses are contained on a secure server and encrypted for your privacy and safety.

HOW MODELSCOUTS.COM USES INFORMATION PROVIDED BY YOU

ModelScouts.com uses information provided by you for the services you have requested. When you create a member account, your photos, stats, and location will be available to ModelScouts.com staff, agents and scouts from international modeling agencies, and others to review.

For example, you may set your privacy so that a) only agents and scouts, or b) agents, scouts and other model members, or c) agents, scouts, model members and the general public can view your photos, stats, and location.

Agents and scouts interested in contacting you will do so by clicking a contact button that they see on their account page. After they click the contact button, our system will send you an email. At no time, do we reveal your email address, phone number or any other contact information to anyone. If you choose to reply to the email the agent or scout has sent you, then your email address will be visible to them in your reply email. If you prefer not to have your email revealed in your reply email, please contact ModelScouts.com so that we may act as a liaison between you and the agent.
