Please read it to understand how we use and protect your personal information. This policy may change from time to time so please check it periodically. It was last updated on May 16th, 2018.

We are committed to protecting your personal information and being transparent about what information we hold about you. Using personal information allows us to develop a better understanding of our patrons and in turn to provide you with relevant and timely information about the work that we do – both on and off stage. As we are also in the process of re-registering Ga Ga Theatre Limited as a charity, it will also help us to engage with potential donors and supporters.

  • What information we may collect about you
  • When and how we may use that information

  1. What personal information we collect

2.1 Information you give us – For example when you register on our website, buy tickets, or sign up to our newsletter, we’ll store personal information you give us such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number and card details. We will also store a record of all your orders and donations. This information will be held on our system and may be used for operational purposes, such as the processing of bookings and orders in connection with our online ticket ordering services and for mailing list subscriptions (see Section 4. How and why we use your personal data).

In order to process a transaction, your personal information and card details may be passed to third party service providers. Card details will only be used for the purpose of handling an individual transaction unless you opt to store them for future transactions (see Section 8. Security – How we protect your data).

2.2 We may receive some information that you submit to any third party website that you access from a link contained in the Ga Ga Theatre website. Both we and the owner or operator of that third party site will be the data controller in respect of any such information and you should check the Privacy Policy of that website to find out how they will use your data. We will only use that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

2.3 Special categories of personal data – data protection law recognises that certain categories of personal information are more sensitive such as health information, race, religious beliefs and political opinions. We do not usually collect this type of information about our patrons unless there is a clear reason for doing so. For example, we may collect health information about patrons with specific access requirements in line with our legitimate interest to provide a safe environment for all patrons. When processing this data, we will always ask for your consent first. This information will be held in our system and will only ever be used for the purposes of fulfilling your booking or order to the best of our ability.

2.4 We may also collect generic information about your visit or use of the Ga Ga Theatre website such as your IP addresses, geographical location, browser type, referral source, length of visit and number of page views. We may use this information for security purposes as well as, but not limited to, optimising the use of the Ga Ga Theatre website. For example, we may use third party contributors such as analytics service providers for website traffic analysis and reporting and to track information such as which browser, screen resolution and IP address you are using to access our website, in addition to tracking your movements around our website. This information is always anonymized unless it is required for legal or security purposes.

  1. The legal basis we rely on to process your personal data– According to current data protection laws, there is a series of bases under which we may process your data. These include:

3.1 Contractual obligations – when you make a purchase from us, you are entering into a contract with us. In order to perform this contract, we need to process and store your data. For example, we may need to contact you by email or telephone in the case of cancellation of a show, or in the case of problems with your payment.

3.2 Legitimate interest – In certain situations (when you make a donation for example) we collect and process your personal information to pursue our legitimate interests in a way which might be reasonably expected as part of running our business and which does not materially impact your rights, freedom or interests. When you book a ticket or activity we may also use your booking history to send you personalised offers or marketing information by email or post about similar events and initiatives that we think may be of interest to you (you may opt-out of receiving these at any time using the contact details at the beginning of this policy). For research and reporting purposes (mostly anonymously), we also combine the booking history of many patrons to identify trends and ensure we provide best customer service. Please see paragraph 5. Disclosure of your information to check where we may use this basis for processing.

3.3 With your explicit consent – In certain situations, where the two bases above are not appropriate, we will instead ask for your explicit consent before using your personal information. For example, when you tick an opt-in box to receive specific communications. When collecting your personal data, we’ll always make clear to you which data is necessary in connection with a particular service or offer.

3.4 Legal compliance – If the law requires us to, we may pass on details of people involved in fraud or other criminal activity which may affect the Ga Ga Theatre.

Less commonly, we may process your personal information where it is needed in relation to legal claims or where it is needed to protect your interests (or someone else’s interests) and you are not capable of giving your consent.

    l) To send you surveys and feedback requests to help improve our services – participation in these is entirely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose any information which might be required.
