The personal information we collect from you

We collect basic personal details such as your name, address, email address, telephone number and association with the society. We may also take your photograph and ask you for your biography.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


This site uses Google Analytics to track activity on the site to improve user experience. This uses cookies to gather information. You can opt out of this, but it does help to improve your experience if we understand a little more about you. For further information and details of how to opt out please see the Google Analytics privacy policy.

How long we retain your electronic data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your electronic data on this site.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

How we use Society member information

For members of the Society we will use your information to send you letters or emails to give you details of General Meetings, Shows, Rehearsals, Production Meetings, Fundraising Activities, Social Events and similar events that are likely to be of interest to you.

Your name, and possibly photograph and biography, may appear in our show programmes (which are public documents) or for publicity, including on our Facebook page. We will ask your permission for this.

Your information may also be shared with our committee members. This use is in our “Legitimate Interest”. We will not share your information with other third parties without your consent.


We put in place reasonable security measures to protect against any unauthorised access or damage to, or disclosure or loss of, your information.

On our web site we have strict security measures to protect Personal Data:

  • We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you submit.
  • We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in connection with the collection, storage and disclosure of personally identifiable customer information. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we disclose personal information to you.

Your rights

Please let us know if your information changes, as it is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and up to date.

We will keep your information indefinitely, but you can ask us to remove your personal information from our records at any time, and we will do so and stop sending you any emails or letters.

You have the right to request a copy of all the personal information we hold about you in a Subject Access Request. To do this, simply write to us at the address below. We will take all reasonable steps to confirm your identity before providing you with details of any personal information we may hold about you.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time; for example, to keep it up to date or to comply with legal requirements. If there will be any significant changes made to the use of your personal information in a manner different from that stated, we will seek your permission first.
