Why we hold information about you
We hold information about you in order to process your ticket purchases, keep you up to date about the shows you are attending, in case of cancellation for example, and informed about the Theatre’s activities, by email or by post. When you buy a ticket you are entering into a contract with us and so we need to record and retain your details. When you register with us, you are asking us to send you details of our shows. We therefore have a legitimate interest in maintaining this information.
What we hold
We hold only the information you give us relating to your registration or purchase and payment. This can comprise name, contact details – address, telephone number, email address and contact preferences, show preferences, gift aid, historical order records, financial records relating to the processing and date of birth. On your first contact with us we ask if you would like to receive information from us by post and/or email about our future activities. We do not hold sensitive personal information.
What we do with it
We use the information only in relation to your interaction with the Theatre. We use it for our own marketing purposes (informing you about our activities) only and do not disclose or sell it to any third party. There is always an unsubscribe facility included in emails we send you.
How we handle it
Your information is held in an industry-standard ticketing system called Spektrix. We require Spektrix to comply strictly with our instructions and with data protection laws.
When you visit our website, we collect information about how you interact with our content and when we send you an email we keep a record of which ones you have opened and which links you have clicked on. This enables us to send you information we think may be of interest to you and to improve our services. We keep the data to make future purchases easy for you and to comply with legal, accounting or booking requirements. Should you object to any personal information being held, your objection will be stored against your record on our system so that we can comply with your requests.
When you interact with us, or use any of our pages on social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube and so on, we may collect information about you which could include personal data: for example, when you "Like" a post on our Facebook page, or "Follow" us on Twitter. Those sites will also have their own privacy policies explaining how they use and share your personal data.
We use appropriate technical and organisational measures, including encryption, to protect your personal data.
Your debit and credit card information
If you use a credit or debit card for your transaction, we will ensure that it is carried out securely and in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
If you wish, you may store your card details for future use. This too is undertaken according to the above standard so that none of our staff members are able to see your full card number. We never store your three- or four-digit security code.
Keeping your records up to date
Please let us know if any of your information changes. You can change your record yourself online or by contacting or visiting the Theatre (see contact details below). Whenever you make a purchase in person, we will check with you that your details are accurate.
