- You should not share or disclose your password with any third party – even if they are your friend. If you lose your password or give it out, your personal data may be compromised. If your profile was hacked, please report it to our iCasting team via our feedback page.
- Always be careful with giving out personal information if you don't know a new person well yet. This includes disclosing your email address, instant messenger details, home address and phone-number. Also be sure to never share your financial information, such as your credit card details.
- Be especially aware of people claiming to be a representative of our company or other companies and who are asking you to pay or delivery a service that is not offered directly on the iCasting website.
- Don’t use a controversial or provocative (user)name – this won’t attract positive attention. We recommend using the necessary professional information only.
- If you come across any inappropriate behavior, click on the report abuse link and this immediately alerts our team. There is also a block member function if you ever feel uncomfortable with other members or clients. Don’t put up with abuse or harassment – block the user or report them to our support team. We aim to deal with these matters as quickly as possible and a detailed management system is in place to monitor and quality control this aspect.

Tips for meeting up offline
- When chatting with people or companies check (use google) their credentials before accepting a job or offer.
- Never feel pressurized into taking a job or meeting up; only do so when you are sure you are ready.
- If you have come to an agreement, contact the client in the day before to check time, date and location.
- Tell friends and family where you are planning to go. Make sure you bring a fully charged mobile with credit, and let your friends know how a casting or job is going and also when you get home safely.
- Arrange your own transportation to and from the meeting place – don’t agree to meet at their place (except if it's the agreed job location) or your own home. In fact, it’s best not to give out your personal address at all until you have really verified the person or company.
- It can be useful to come prepared with an excuse to leave if you feel the job, casting or meeting is getting inappropriate, that way you get out with a minimum of fuss. Be sure to report the job offer to your team.
