How we share and disclose the information to third parties
We do not sell or share your Personal Information to anyone without your explicit consent before doing so. We may share your details with specific named visiting companies whose performances you have attended, but only if you have already given your explicit consent before doing so. Under certain circumstances we may be required to disclose your Personal Information in response to valid requests by public authorities such as the Police or security services.
“Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best service/products and the best and most secure experience. For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant for you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests. It can also apply to processing that is in your interests; for example, we may process your information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website, and to ensure our websites and systems are secure.
When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under data protection laws. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your Personal Data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law). If you have any concerns you have the right to object to processing your personal information that is based on our legitimate interests.
Security of Personal Information
We use appropriate technical, organisational and administrative security measures to protect any information we hold from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We will ensure that any third parties we use for processing your personal information do the same. Unfortunately, no company or service can guarantee complete security. Unauthorised entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.
How long do we store your data?
We will not retain personal data for longer than is necessary for the purpose it is required, and we will ensure it is securely deleted when no longer needed. We will review data to reduce the risk of it becoming inaccurate, out of date or irrelevant. Please let us know if you see any inaccuracy with the data that we are holding by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
