- We will use customer data stored for mailings advertising events taking place at the venue and elsewhere.
- Third Party organisers of events at our venue will sometimes be provided with date relating to customers for the events that they organised. In these situations the third party organiser will be expected to follow the same rules as the theatre (detailed here).
- All data (except statistical data) will be removed from our database two years after the final contact made.
- All marketing emails sent to previous customers and subscription lists will contain information on how to remove that email address from our database.
Whilst every effort is made to protect the security of your data we acknowledge that mistakes are sometimes made. If you would like to discuss our data protection policies further call 020 3108 1000.
