1 Statement of intent
The Havering Theatre Trust Limited (“the Queen’s Theatre, Hornchurch”) is committed to safeguarding your privacy, including online. This statement sets out how, and why, we use personal information, (or “data”), we collect about you, including through our website www.queens-theatre.co.uk
Please do read it carefully to understand how your personal information will be treated.
2 Personal Information – data
Your personal information is also known as data, and is protected by the Data Protection Act.
Any data you provide about yourself, and any information which identifies you, such as your name, address, telephone number will only be retained by us if you tell us that we can do so.
Of course, you might choose not to, although this means that we may not be able to provide you with the full range of our services (for example, letting you know of any problems).
You can update and amend your personal details at any time by signing into our website using the sign-in button, and then accessing your account details. Or you can call or visit the Box Office during opening hours, and we’ll do this for you.
Credit and debit cards
Credit and debit card payments are handled by a secure third party provider and all details are destroyed immediately after each transaction.
3 What we use your data for
If you’ve given us permission, we hold your data on our box office system and use it for operational purposes, such as processing bookings. We can also send you information about forthcoming shows. At any time, you have the right to change the uses you permit us to make.
From time to time we might ask you for additional information, for the same purposes or to update our records. You never have to agree to this; and we will always tell you why we need this information.
4 Sharing your data
We will never share your data without your permission.
You can withdraw your permission at any time.
5 Automated data collection
When you visit our box office site, it automatically captures your internet protocol (“IP”), address, in order to keep track of what you’re requesting. It won’t have any of your personal information until you tell it, though.
