How we use information about you

We collect and hold information about you so we can:

  • personalise your experience of our website and/or communications you receive from us.
  • record who has given money or services to us so that we can tell them how their money has helped us and others, and to claim Gift Aid where possible.
  • process ticket and merchandise orders that you have submitted.
  • manage our organisation effectively and continually improve what we do.
  • develop our relationship with you as someone who may want to collaborate with us.
  • inform future programming of events including better understanding of specific locations and tailoring work to specific audiences.
  • encourage bookings for our events and donations in order for us to be less dependent on funding – according to what marketing communications you have agreed to:
  • to communicate with you about ourselves, our work, future festivals, other fun stuff that we think you might find interesting, and opportunities to support us.
  • to communicate with you about training and workshops.

 

Although we sometimes will tell you about work from others, we won’t pass information we hold about you to them – unless you explicitly give us your permission.

Any feedback you give us we may use in public communications. But we won’t do so in such a way that people would know it was from you – unless we get your permission.

We may share information about you with other organisations who help us deliver services to you but this will always be under the same conditions as we are bound by under this privacy policy.

We may share information about you with law enforcement agencies or other organisations or individuals if we are obliged to by law.
