We do not sell or otherwise transfer control of your data to anyone else.

HOW LONG WE RETAIN YOUR DATA Our policy is to retain data only for as long as it is necessary for fulfilling the purpose for which you have consented to us processing it (i.e. because you would like to hear from us about future activities we undertake similar to those for which you purchased a ticket). Productions with which we are connected and are relevant to your interest based on the consent you have granted may have a long life span as they may be performed for years in one place and/or they may tour and there may be gaps between tours. There may be many related productions which may be of interest to you over time. For this reason we retain your data for five years following your consent. After five years, we will delete your data or ask you if you would like us to continue to contact you. If you grant this consent more than once, the five years will be the date from the most recent confirmation of your consent. However, you have the right to shorten that period by withdrawing your consent for us to process your data at any time (see below under Your Rights) and it is easy to contact us if you want to do so sooner than five years from your most recent consent.
