As a Backstage subscriber, you'll receive several different types of email notifications from us about our service, promotions, your account, and several other topics. They fall under the three following categories:
- Product-based notifications - These are alerts about your saved searches, notifications of new messages from talent or casting directors, invitations to apply to roles, and Backstage Community posting announcements.
- Marketing emails - This includes special offers and the daily newsletter showing castings near you.
- Transactional emails - Renewal notifications, payment failures, price changes to subscriptions, password reset emails, etc.
Should you feel overwhelmed with the various communications you're receiving from us, we offer you the ability to control what's coming in to your inbox. That way you'll get the messages you want, and none of the ones you don't.
