Glyndebourne Privacy Notice
If you have any questions or comments please email email@example.com.
When we collect personal data from you we store it under strict safekeeping and confidentiality measures. We use technical and organisational security measures to protect it against misuse and any external data processing services we use must meet our security policies. We hold your data on secure servers operated by Glyndebourne and (for GlyndebourneShop.com) BigCommerce. GlyndebourneShop.com transfers this information to servers outside the EEA but provides an equivalent level of protection for that data. We meet the protection offered to you under the Data Protection Act 1998.
What we do with your data and what we don’t do
We will keep information which identifies you only if you are a member, purchase tickets, make a donation, buy from our shop or ask to receive communications from us. Such personal information could include:
- your name
- phone number
- date of birth
- email address
- IP (internet protocol) address
- payment card details (these are not stored in a usable format and are kept only while we process your payment)
We process your personal information for:
- membership administration
- administration of donations, sponsorship and legacies
- research and statistical analysis (collected anonymously)
- fulfilment of merchandise orders from our shop
And, only with your prior consent, for:
- requests to support Glyndebourne projects
- communication about Glyndebourne productions, activities and products
We sometimes have to share your information with third parties to undertake these business activities. When we do so we always confirm that they meet our security standards. Examples of such sharing are:
- our on-site caterer, Leith’s Limited, for restaurant booking
- a mailing house for handling our direct postal communications with you.
When we allow access to your information we always control what they can see, what they are allowed to do with it and how long they can see it.
We do not share or sell your personal information for other organisations to use for their own purposes. We do not store credit card details in a usable format and will not disclose them to any third party. The only exception is that for certain larger events we occasionally agree to assist with your catering arrangements. We will then share your payment details, for this purpose only, with Leith’s at Glyndebourne if you have given us your express permission to do so.
We do not use third-party profiling companies. We may use profiling and screening techniques ourselves to analyse your personal data and create a profile of your interests and preferences. In doing so we may make use of additional information about you, including where you live, your age and similar demographics, and any publicly-available information about you. We want to contact you only when it may be relevant. By better understanding the background of our supporters we are able to make appropriate requests for gifts that will help us continue to make world-class opera created by the most talented artists. Gifts from people who may be able, and are willing, to give us more than they already do, will enable us to raise funds sooner and in a more tailored way than we otherwise would. This information will also help us to meet our obligations to protect the charity from financial fraud and risk.
Newsletters and Mailings
We will let Members have the first opportunity to know Glyndebourne news by sending a special Members’ Newsletter by post.
Our e-newsletters will give you news related to Glyndebourne and items we think will be of interest to you. We will not sell, rent or lease our newsletter subscription lists to any third-parties. We may use code within our e-newsletter template to identify which messages you have opened and which links you have clicked on within it to better tailor any future communications.
