What information do we collect?
Generally, we collect your information when you first interact with us. This could include buying tickets online, over the phone or in person, where you sign up to receive emails from us or when we communicate with you in relation to a recruitment process. We only collect the information that’s necessary to carry out our business, provide the particular service you’ve requested and to keep you informed. For the majority of our services, we simply require name, postal address, telephone number and email address. This is so we can process payments securely, post tickets if requested, and keep you informed about your future visits. This information will not be sold or passed on to third parties without your prior consent and any card details you have provided for payment will be processed through secure server software.
We may require more information from you in order to provide additional services.
