A COMMITMENT TO SECURITY

We know that data security is a critical issue for our Industry. Our software conforms to industry best practices and follows the same tech standards used from Netflix to the big banks.

BANK-LEVEL ENCRYPTION

We use the same technology as all major Canadian banks to keep your account info safe. For data security, we use PostgreSQL with encryption at rest. Sensitive fields are further encrypted using the AES-256 algorithm.

SECURE DATA MANAGEMENT

We abide by PIPEDA standards, so your data stays on servers in your own country. We'll never share your details or documents with anyone without your express permission.

Q&A

 

Where and how is TALENT data stored?

All Circus customer data is hosted in data centers located in Canada. These data centers are high-security and access controlled through multiple levels of security. Onsite security procedures include biometric scanning, 24/7 camera monitors, and 24/7 staff to protect against unauthorized entry. Our data centers are also ISO 27001 and FISMA certified to meet stringent data security requirements.

Who can access TALENT information?

When Talent onboards onto productions and signs the digital deal memos, they are transferring only the data and docs that the Content Creator has requested. The Content Creator may also grant limited access to other crucial department heads such as Production Accountants, Line Producers, Production Managers, or even Coordinators so that they may process legal, payroll and tax credits.

DOES CIRCUS COLLECT SOCIAL INSURANCE NUMBERS?

Yes, it’s necessary to process payroll but we handle this data point with the strictest of security protocols. The SIN is encrypted within the platform and redacted on all documents. The only way SINs can be accessed is through a password protected account by designated employees granted by the Content Creator.

 

What encryption do you use?

We use PostgreSQL with encryption at rest. Sensitive fields are further encrypted using the AES-256 algorithm. Data being transmitted between your browser and our web servers is encrypted using TLS 1.2—the strongest encryption protocol available.

Is my payment information secure?

Circus uses Stripe to collect and process all customer payments. Stripe is a leading payment processing company that is fully PCI DSS-compliant (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard). No credit card information is stored within the Circus platform to ensure our customers’ security.

 

Let’s roll. Managing your Talent is about to get a lot easier.
