Terms & conditions
The name Auditionline, as referred to in these Terms & conditions, is an abbreviation of Auditionline.com BV (the full company name).
All Users/Members of Auditionline accept the conditions stipulated in these Terms & conditions.
Auditionline is an internet-based platform aimed at connecting the entire international performing arts world, through connecting people, groups, companies and organizations to auditions, jobs and other opportunities. Auditionline only accepts professionals and students aiming at becoming professionals.
A User is a person, group, company or organization who is a Member of Auditionline.
Users of Auditionline accept the conditions stipulated in this User agreement as well as Auditionline’s Privacy and Copyright policies.
A User becomes a Member of Auditionline after registering and paying for the chosen subscription.
Members can create a profile page or browse the database anonymously. Members who browse anonymously have access to all available tools, including (group) messaging but cannot be found via search or contacted. A Member may create or delete their own profile page whenever they choose to.
Membership gives unlimited access to all basic tools available on the Auditionline platform.
- creating a profile (showcase) page
- finding people, groups, companies, organizations and institutions working within the performing arts world
- finding (commercial) companies, organizations and institutions who have dealings with the performing arts world, but are not themselves part of it
- creating subject-specific ‘favorites’ folders to which chosen profiles may be added
- the ability to contact all other Auditionline Members, who are not using the platform anonymously, through direct messaging or the group messaging tool
- finding and/or posting auditions, jobs, events and other opportunities
Auditionline does not act as an intermediary in any hiring/contracting process. Any such arrangements take place outside of Auditionline’s reach and responsibility.
All profiles on Auditionline will be reviewed by an Auditionline curator. This curator verifies that the person, group, company or organization described in the profile is of a professional (or student) level. Profiles which are verified as such will be endorsed with the term ‘verified profile’. Prior to this, profiles will be shown as ‘pending’.
A curator can reject a profile or put it ‘on hold’ (still labelled as ‘pending’). In case of rejection, the profile page will not be shown anymore but the Member can still use all available tools. If a curator puts a profile ‘on hold’, this means that the quality of presentation or footage needs to be improved or information must be added. After these requirements, have been met, the profile will be reviewed again and either receive the ‘verified profile’ status or be rejected.
If a profile is rejected, the Member does not receive any refund. Members whose profiles have been rejected still have access to all other Auditionline tools in their subscription package.
A curator can also select a profile to become a ‘Curator’s Choice’. A profile endorsed with ‘Curator’s Choice’ is given additional exposure on the Auditionline.com home page for a limited amount of time.

Auditionline reserves the right to terminate a Members’ subscription. The Member will be notified and given the reason for termination. Depending on the specific case, Auditionline can decide to refund (part of) the paid subscription fee.
