Privacy Policy

Sadler's Wells is committed to being transparent about how we use your data. This policy explains how we gather and process your personal information.

As a registered charity, Sadler’s Wells needs to collect some data about our customers in order to be able to operate.

When you interact with us we will collect data about you for a variety of reasons - for example, to provide a service to you (such as posting purchased tickets), or to report to our sponsors and funders like Arts Council England. 

Collecting data about transactions and booking preferences ensures that any communication that you have agreed to receive from us is appropriate, and enables us to market performances and fundraise more effectively.

Some of the information we request from you is optional and you can decide not to give it to us - we will let you know this when we request it.  If you do decline to give us those details it may limit the personalisation or services that we are able to offer - e.g., you may not get to hear about an event that we think you would be interested in. 

We ensure that all of our activities that involve your personal data are carried out lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner.

This policy explains:

  1. How we collect your personal information

  2. What types of information we collect

  3. Special types of information, and its use

  4. What we use this information for

  5. Our legal reasons for collecting and using your information

  6. Who your data is shared with

  7. How long your data will be kept

  8. Your rights about your data

Accuracy

We do request that any information that you give us is kept accurate and up to date.

You can amend your details in the following ways:

  • Directly within your online account (log in here)
  • By contacting the Ticket Office on +44 (0)20 7863 8000
  • By visiting us in person at Sadler's Wells or The Peacock Theatre

If you gave us your data in relation to an application for one of our work opportunities please email recruitment@sadlerswells.com.

Updates to this policy

This policy is under regular review so may change at any time. We will notify you about significant changes by sending a notice to the primary email address you have provided to us, and/or by placing a prominent notice on our website(s).

1. How do we collect your personal information?

 

We collect information about you in the following ways:

From you directly

Most of the information about you we get from you directly, usually in the course of you purchasing something from us (like a ticket), by joining one of our mailing lists, applying for one of our work opportunities, or giving us feedback.

Show more information

We collect data directly from you when you:

  • Purchase tickets from us
  • Join one of our membership schemes
  • Purchase a gift membership for someone else
  • Make a donation
  • Sign up to our mailing lists
  • Apply for one of our work opportunities
  • Raise a query or give us feedback

This may happen via our website, over the phone, or in person.

We also get data from you if you take part in any surveys we may send you so we can learn more about you and your interests – however responding to these is optional.

From your use of our services

When you use our services we record details of this and the outcome, for example we retain a record of the tickets you have purchased from us, any donations you've made, and any memberships you may have had.

When you visit our website or make a booking online we will also make a note of how you access our website (e.g. from a computer, or a mobile device), and what parts of our website you use, using "cookies" - our cookie policy has more information on this.

Show more information

We collect data about your use of our services when you:

  • Visit our websites (sadlerswells.com and peacocktheatre.com)
  • Purchase tickets from us (via our website, over the phone, or in person)
  • Join one of our membership schemes (via our website, over the phone, or in person)
  • Purchase a gift membership for someone else (via our website, over the phone, or in person)
  • Make a donation (via our website, over the phone, or in person)
  • Sign up to our mailing lists

On our websites we (as many organisations do) use programmatic advertising – this means that if you look at details for a show on our website you are more likely to see online adverts for this show when you visit other sites that use the same advertising platform as us (Google and Quantcast).

We use information about your use of our services to offer assistance if we think it would be helpful – for example, if you start to purchase something on our website and are then not able to complete the purchase we may send you an email to offer help.

From your interaction with us on social media

If you interact with us on social media (for example to make a comment or ask a question), we may record the details of this interaction, particularly if you give us your personal data in relation to a booking query. 

Depending on your settings or the Privacy Policies of social media platforms you may be giving third parties (like ourselves) permission to access information from those accounts or services.

Show more information

Our access to information from social media platforms is governed by the preferences you have set and the platforms’ polices.

If you have any queries about their use of your data you should read their Privacy Policies:

We also collect and track anonymised data on our social media audiences to better understand the ‘groups’ of people who engage with us online. We use this to ensure we engage with audiences and groups of people who are new to us.

From third parties

We may be given information about you by third parties that you have given your information to; for example if you purchase interval drinks via our app provider, see one of our shows on tour, book through a ticket agent, or make a donation to us through a donation portal.

You should check the Privacy Policy of the third party to fully understand how they will use your data and how it will be shared with us.

We will also get some of your details if someone purchases a gift membership for you - we will only use these details initially to let you know about the gift you have been given, and to invite you to create an account on our systems to take advantage of the gift.

Show more information

These are the ways that a third party may give your data to us:


Ordering interval drinks

Our app for ordering interval drinks is provided by Preoday. They will pass some of your data on to us, so that we can provide the drinks that you have ordered and contact you with any queries relating to your order.

They will also use your data for analysis and statistics, for full details please read their Privacy Policy.


Our shows on tour

If you watch any of our shows on tour and book with the hosting venue they may ask if you are happy for your details to be passed on to us.

If they do send the data to us we will contact you within 30 days to let you know it’s been given to us.


Ticket agents

If you book a ticket to one of our shows via a ticket agent they will pass on some of your details to us so we can process your order and identify you should you have a query.

We will not use these details for any marketing or fundraising communications unless we have your consent directly from you.


Fundraising sites

If you donate to us by using fundraising sites such as JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving they may also pass on some of your details to us.


Gift memberships

If someone purchases you a gift membership, they have the option of giving us your name and contact details so we can inform you about the gift. We will only use this data in the first instance to let you know about this gift and how you can take advantage of it.

When you subsequently create an account on our systems we will then use your data in line with the details in this Privacy Policy

 

From “public sources”

We will sometimes use data from other publicly published sources and combine this with what we already know about you.

We will only do this in relation to our fundraising activity, and only in order to ensure that any fundraising approaches that we make are appropriate to what we believe is within your inclination and capacity to donate.

We will only contact you with a fundraising approach or with an invitation to an event if we have your clear consent to do so.

Our fundraising processes are consistent with the Fundraising Regulator's Code Of Fundraising Practice.

Show more information

The sources that we may use will be publicly available and can usually be found through search engines like Google.

Examples of the types of information we may be able to obtain:

  • Your biography on your employer’s website
  • Information published in mainstream media
  • Publicly published donor lists from other charities/arts organisations
  • Information from sources like Companies House or The Charities Commission.

We may also obtain information about you from individuals working on our behalf such as our development board.

We aim to collect the smallest amount of data about you that we need in order to either provide a service to you, or to meet our charitable aims.

If you give us consent to send you email for marketing or fund-raising purposes we will note if you open these emails, or click any links within them.  We do this in order to assess the effectiveness of our emails.

Show more information

Below are the details of your connections to other people that we may record on our systems:


Account linking and “households”

If you ask us to we can link your account on our systems to another account of someone living at the same address.

This will enable both of you to make bookings as if they are under the same account – so if one of you has joined one of our membership schemes both of you can use those benefits.

We will also use the information about this link to assist us with learning more about our audiences.

3. Special types of information


Some of the information that you give us, due to its nature, has more potential to cause harm if not handled correctly. 

Payment card information

We only collect payment card details for the purposes of processing a single transaction.  

Our website does give the option of "saving" card details - however these are not retained on our systems, they are held by our payment processor on our behalf.

We only have access to partial payment card details to enable us to respond to queries and track transactions.

Show more information

Paying by card

If you use your payment card (credit or debit) to purchase something from us (either through our website, in person, or over the phone), we will ensure that this is done securely and in accordance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. You can find out more information about PCI DSS here.

When you provide us with your card details (either in person, over the phone, or via our website) these details are sent directly to our payment processor (MasterCard Payment Gateway Services), who then give us a transaction reference number and partial card details.


Saving card details

When using our website if you opt to “save” the payment card details for ease of use next time, our payment processor will provide us with a “token” that we can use for future purchases from you.

This token is not your actual card number, it’s a unique reference number that can only be used by ourselves when you make a payment with us – if stolen it can’t be used elsewhere


Card details in email

If we receive an email that looks like it contains payment card details our systems will automatically remove those details and payment will not be taken.

"Special category" personal data

Data protection law recognises that certain categories of personal information are more sensitive. This is known as "special category" data and covers health information, race, religious beliefs and political opinions.

We do not routinely collect special category data unless there is a clear reason for doing so - such as health details when taking part in a workshop or when submitting an application for our work opportunities.

Show more information

This is the special category data that we might request:


Health data

If you participate in an event or class or where we need this information to ensure that we provide appropriate facilities or support (for example recording any health conditions if you participate in a workshop), we will ask you for the relevant details – which you can decline to give us.


Diversity monitoring

We do send out surveys from time to time to assist us with our diversity monitoring, and we are often required to report on this as part of our funding. These surveys will request some special category data but supplying this is optional.

Any diversity monitoring is subsequently anonymised and not linked to individual customer records. We often use external agencies for this monitoring, and we will receive the information not as detailed customer-by-customer data, but as anonymised, aggregated data.


Any special category data we have about you we will only use if you have agreed to give it to us, and we’ll only use it for the purposes we told you about at the time we collected the data.

Things we do where we believe we have a justifiable reason (known as "legitimate interest")

Some of the usage of your data we do because we believe that we have a legitimate interest in doing so, that we believe doesn’t infringe your rights and freedoms.

Where we have made this decision we have outlined our interests and balanced them against your interests and rights, and reached a conclusion that our activity doesn’t inconvenience you too much.

As an example, we believe we have a legitimate interest in monitoring transactions in our systems to spot potential fraud, or monitoring who opens emails we send to track the effectiveness of our marketing emails.

You do have the right to object to any of this processing, see "Your rights" below.

Show more information

Below are the “data processing activities” that we do because we feel we have a legitimate interest in doing so.


Email to offer assistance with a booking

If you start to make a booking but are unable to complete it we may send you an email to offer assistance.


Post-show email

After you have seen a show we will send you an email that gives further information about the show and the critical response that it has received.

We will also invite you to take part in a (optional) survey to help us learn more about our audiences.


Email to invite you to participate in a survey

From time to time we may email you to ask you to take part in an audience survey, either carried out by ourselves, or by the company whose work you have seen.

This helps us (or the company whose work you’ve seen) learn more about audiences and their interests.

Participation in these surveys is entirely optional.

If the survey is carried out by the company whose work you’ve seen and you agree to participate, they may be able to link your responses to pseudonymised sales data that we have given them to record which show you saw at one of our venues.


Audience Segmentation

If we have your consent to send you marketing or fundraising information we will also use what we know about you (your purchase history, other people living at the same address, home address location) to only send you information that we think you will be interested in.

We also make use of services provided by outside agencies to give us aggregated information about our audiences and their make-up.


Research on prospective donors

In addition to using what we know about you (your purchase history, family members, home address location), we may also look at sources of publicly available data (as outlined here) to gauge your likely ability and propensity to donate to us.


Monitoring email interactions

If we have your consent to send you marketing or fundraising emails, we will gather details about your interaction with those emails; if you opened them, when, on which device, and if you clicked on any links.

We do this to assess the effectiveness of our emails, and also to assist us in removing people from our mailing list who may not want to receive emails from us any more.


Systems testing

Before implementing a new version of our CRM system we will create a copy of our live data for internal testing and validation.

We use live data for this purpose as it will accurately reflect how the upgraded system will behave when deployed.


Systems backup and business continuity

We make copies of our CRM system (and the data within) for backup purposes, and to enable us to recover quickly on alternative systems in the event of an interruption to service.


Database cleansing

In order to keep our database accurate and relevant we will consult external services from time-to-time, such as National Change of Address.


Physical security at Sadler’s Wells and The Peacock Theatre

We make use of CCTV recording equipment in and around our premises for monitoring and security purposes.


Fraud prevention

We monitor our systems and transactions for indications of potential fraudulent activity.

6. Who do we share your data with?

Companies your data may be shared with

We engage third-parties to assist us with some of our data processing – these companies will only use your data for things that we have instructed them to do on our behalf. 

We will also ask if you are happy for us to transfer your contact details to the company whose work you are seeing, to allow them to communicate with you directly.

We may also share your pseudonymised purchase history with the company whose work you are seeing, for their own research purposes. They may ask us to send you an email on their behalf to invite you to participate in a survey – if you take part in this survey they may be able to link your responses to the purchase histories we have given them.

We do not sell or trade your personal data to third parties for any purpose.

7. How long will your data be kept?

 

Your data will be kept only for as long as needed for the purposes that it is used for.  Exactly how long will depend on what we are using the data for, and on your level of engagement with our services.

For example, if you sign up to our mailing list and we notice that you have not opened any emails from us for over a year, we will email you to ask if you would like to keep hearing from us.  If you do not respond, we will then stop sending you emails, but we will keep any account that you have on our systems open and available to you.

If you have an account on our systems for making purchases we will retain your details for 10 years after the most recent purchase, or one year if there are no purchases - unless you have also opted in to receive emails from us and we can see you are opening those emails.  We will contact you before closing your account to let you know.

Show more information

Here are the details of how long we’ll keep your data for:


Mailing lists

If you sign up to one of our mailing lists but haven’t made a purchase with us (so you don’t have an account on our systems), we will retain your details for as long as we still have your ongoing consent and can see that you are engaging with the emails we send you (opening them or clicking links).

If we notice that you have not opened emails from us for over a year, we will email you to ask if you would like to keep hearing from us. If you do not respond, we will then stop sending you emails, and we will update our systems to show that we do not have your consent to send you those emails.

If we no longer have your consent we will however retain your details on a suppression list to ensure that we comply with your wishes.


Your account on our systems

If you have an account on our systems for making purchases (either created by yourself via our website, or created by us on your behalf when you make a purchase over the phone or in person), we will retain your details for 10 years after the most recent purchase, or one year if there are no purchases.

If you are signed up to one of our mailing lists, we will keep your account on our systems active regardless of your purchasing activity.

If we are about to remove your details from our systems we will contact you to let you know and to give you the opportunity to have the account remain as it is.


Website analytics data

We use Google Analytics and Hotjar to provide us with statistics about how people use our website. The data that they provide us is not used to identify any particular visitor to our website.

Google will keep this data for us for a period of 26 months and Hotjar 365 days after the last activity.


Applications for work opportunities

The application tracking system we use (Engage ATS) retains personal data for 12 months, at which point it is automatically deleted.


Feedback

Any feedback you give to us, either via email, post or verbally we will note in your account on our systems. This account will be retained as outlined above.

8. Your Rights


As well as the right to be informed about the data we collect and what we use it for (which this Privacy Policy outlines), you also have several other rights under data protection regulations.

Right Of Access

You have a right to ask if we hold information about you, and if we do you have a right to request a copy of that data.

Show more information

You have the right to obtain a copy of the data that we hold about you, as well the right to obtain from us confirmation if we have personal data about you.

If we do have data about you, you have the right to know:

  • The purposes we have used your data for
  • The categories of data concerned
  • Details of any recipients to whom your data has been (or will be) disclosed
  • Details about how long we will store your data (or what criteria we use to determine this)

Should you wish to exercise this right we request that you contact us and provide:

  • The email address on your account

and
  • The postcode of the address in your account
    or
  • The last four numbers of the phone number in your account

Additionally, please provide as much information as possible about the nature of your contact with us to help us locate your records.

Details of how we can be contacted are on our feedback page.

We will respond to your request within one month, and we may need to request further details from you to validate your identity and request.

Do note that if we feel that the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive we reserve the right to decline your request – if we do this we will write to you to let you know.

Right of Rectification

You have a right to correct any information that we have about you that is incorrect.

Show more information

You have the right to correct any inaccurate information we have about you. If you notify us that the data we hold about you is incorrect we will stop using it until we have verified its accuracy (also known as the “right of restriction”).

You can do this in a variety of ways – either by logging into your account here, by calling Ticket Office on +44 (0)20 7863 8000, or by visiting us in person at Sadler’s Wells or The Peacock Theatre.

Right of Erasure

In certain circumstances, you have the right to ask us to remove data we have about you. 

Show more information

You have the right to request that we erase the information that we hold about you, unless we need to retain it for legal reasons (such as details of a Gift Aid declaration (including cancelled Gift Aid declarations)), technical reasons (if you have asked us not to contact you or process your data we will need to store your information on a suppression list to ensure that we comply with your wishes), or we have an outstanding obligation to you (you have booked tickets to an upcoming show).

Should you wish to exercise this right we request that you contact us and provide:

  • The email address on your account

and
  • The postcode of the address in your account
    or
  • The last four numbers of the phone number in your account

Additionally, please provide as much information as possible about the nature of your contact with us to help us locate your records.

Details of how we can be contacted are on our feedback page.

We will respond to your request within one month, and we may need to request further details from you to validate your identity and request.

Do note that if we feel that the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive we reserve the right to decline your request – if we do this we will write to you to let you know.

Right to Withdraw Consent

If we ask for your consent to do something (like send you marketing emails), you have the right to revoke that consent at any time.

Show more information

If we have asked for your consent to do something with your data you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time, and we will stop using your data for that purpose.

If you wish to do this you can in a variety of ways – either by logging into your account here, by calling Ticket Office on +44 (0)20 7863 8000, or by visiting us in person at Sadler’s Wells or The Peacock Theatre.

Every email that we send you on the basis of your consent will have an opt-out/unsubscribe link that you can also use to revoke your consent.

Right to Object & Restrict processing

You have the right to object (or prevent) any processing we do where we feel we have a justifiable reason.

Show more information

Some of the things we do with your data we do because we believe that we have a legitimate interest in doing this and we believe that it doesn’t outweigh your rights and freedoms.

However you do have the right to object to our use of your data for this purpose. If you do object we will not process your data for this purpose while we are assessing your objection.

Should you wish to exercise this right we request that you contact us and provide:

  • The email address on your account

and
  • The postcode of the address in your account
    or
  • The last four numbers of the phone number in your account

Additionally, please provide as much information as possible about the nature of your contact with us to help us locate your records.

Details of how we can be contacted are on our feedback page.

We will respond to your request within one month, and we may need to request further details from you to validate your identity and request.

If after examining your claim we believe that your rights and freedoms have not been infringed we may decline your request, if we do this we will write to you to let you know.

Right to lodge a complaint

In the first instance we would ask that you contact us first so we have an opportunity to put things right, but ultimately you have the right to lodge a formal complaint with the regulator.

Show more information

If you are unhappy with how we deal with your personal information in the first instance we suggest that you contact us directly so we can investigate the matter by calling Box Office on +44 (0)20 7863 8000, or by visiting in person.

If you wish to make a formal complaint to us we request that you do so in writing, details of how we can be contacted are on our feedback page.

If you are subsequently unhappy with our response you can contact The Information Commissioner’s Office, via their online reporting system: https://ico.org.uk/concerns
