Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we have a legal duty to protect any personal data we collect from you, to be explicit about what purposes we are using it for and to make it easy for you to opt out from receiving communication from us at any time. In this context, personal data refers to any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified.
This page explains how we protect and respect the data we collect from you.
What personal data do we collect about you?
When you purchase tickets from us or when you place an order for Chapter products or services such as Friends memberships or shop merchandise, we collect personal data such as name, postal address, telephone number and email address. Details of payment card numbers are held on a secure server. We also collect personal data when you voluntarily complete customer surveys, provide feedback, book for workshops and free events, and participate in competitions. Website usage information is collected using cookies.
How will we use the personal data about you?
We collect personal data about you to process any order you make, to enable you to use Chapter services and to let you know if there are any changes to our events or services (for instance a change in start time or very occasionally regarding a cancellation).
We will also collect personal data about you, if you agree, so we can email you about other Chapter events and services we think may be of interest to you. We will only do this if you have given your consent when asked at the initial point of contact.
In relation to personal data voluntarily given through customer surveys and feedback forms, this data is used to inform future programme plans and improve services and is occasionally shared with stakeholders and is sometimes required as a condition of funders. In these instances, all data is anonymised, with no identifiable data being passed on. For the purposes of competitions, personal data is collected for that specific purpose and destroyed after completion.
If you also consent, we will use your personal data to let you know about our Fundraising activities and selected activities in which Chapter is involved.
We will never share your personal data with external companies other than those selected to process our customers details for the purposes of ticket or product transactions (Patronbase); room hire (Artifax); and café bar transactions (Point One). We have put in place contractual arrangements with these organisations to ensure that your data is secure and protected at all times. Requests for information to be removed from these systems should be made directly to Chapter.
Suppliers who we hold contractual arrangements with include:
Patronbase Processing ticket and product purchases
Artifax Processing room and office hires
Point One Processing Café Bar transactions
Etapestry Holding records of grants and donations received
Breathe HR system recording holiday and sickness of Chapter employees
Sage Processing of invoices
Chapter will not share your personal data for marketing purposes with external companies.
We would like to send you information about films, performances, exhibitions, hires, membership and café bar activity which form part of Chapter’s regular activities, and occasionally information on shows from similar cultural organisations which may be of interest to you. You will be asked if you consent to this at the time of booking.
If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at a later date.
You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes by ringing our Box Office on 029 2030 4400 or by emailing email@example.com. All email communication from Chapter has an automatic unsubscribe option at the bottom of the email.
