We will not share your personal information with other organisations without your consent. We will ask for your consent to share personal information with other organisations (such as theatres or other theatre companies we work with).


Where ‘legitimate interest’ is the lawful condition for processing, evidence should be given of the process by which the rights and freedoms of the individual have been weighed against the interests of the company, and how consideration/mitigation of the outcomes of the process have been made. 


  • We are required to process the data we collect (such as names, emails, postal addresses etc.) in order to communicate relevant information of interest to our customers and partners, regarding our activities, productions, events and other pertinent materials

  • Our customers and partners benefit from this processing, as they are kept up-to-date on our latest activities, productions, and news. We also benefit by creating audiences to experience and appreciate our work.

  • Without the ability to communicate with our potential and past audiences and supporters, we would be unable to promote our offerings to the widest possible audience and therefore the appreciation for and participation in our art form would suffer

  • The data collected would never be used in an unlawful or unethical manner



  • Processing helps to further our purpose and interest through providing us with the raw material necessary for communication with our potential and future audiences, supporters and partners

  • The processing of data is reasonable because without such processing the data collected would not be useful

  • There is not another less intrusive way of obtaining the same result, because basic contact details are required in order to carry out our above stated purposes

4. Disclosures

We may disclose information about you to any of our staff, officers, representatives, contractors, or subcontractors insofar as reasonably necessary for the purposes as set out in this privacy policy.

In addition, we may disclose your personal data:

  • to the degree that we are required to do so by law;

  • in association with any legal proceedings or prospective legal actions;

  • in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights (including providing information to others for the purposes of fraud prevention and reducing credit risk).

Except as provided in this privacy policy, we will not provide your information to third parties.

5. Security of your Individual Data

We will take sensible technical and structural precautions to prevent the loss, misappropriation, or modification of your personal data. Information transmission over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot promise the security of data sent over the internet.

In practice, you will typically either expressly agree in advance to our use of your personal information for marketing or fundraising purposes, or we will provide you with a chance to opt-out of the use of your personal information for marketing or fundraising purposes.

We retain all data collected for a period of two years, after which information which demonstrates dormancy (for example, the subject has not opened an email from us in two years) is purged from the system.
