Automatic Collection of Information
We do not automatically log personal data nor do we link information automatically logged by other means with personal data about specific individuals.
We do not disclose your personal data to other organisations, unless it is a necessary part of ensuring we provide you with a pre-agreed service such as providing up-to-date information about our concerts, events and other relevant information for our supporters, as requested by you.
Confidentiality / Security
We have implemented security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from unauthorised access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorised modification and unlawful destruction or accidental loss. All our employees and data processors, who have access to, and are associated with the processing of personal data, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of our visitors’ personal data.
We ensure that your personal data will not be disclosed to other institutions and authorities except if required by law or other regulation or unless we have already sought your consent.
Sharing of anonymous box office data with other arts organisations, venues and relevant partners
We may share anonymised personal information with other organisations e.g. Sheffield Music Hub, who use this to analyse youth participation in music, ticket sales and self-generated funding to understand the impact of public (and other) investment made in Sheffield Young Singers.
Many of our events are presented in partnership with venues, other artistic organisations, promoters and/or festivals in Sheffield and around the country, usually using their own box office for ticket sales, or occasionally a third party box office/sales outlet. Where you have given personal data to the box office at the time of booking, we may need to share the necessary information about your booking in order to ensure your entry to our concerts and events. We will treat this information securely and only retain it for as long as necessary in order to deliver the events in question. We may share anonymised information with other parties, such as a booking ID, postcode, the events you have booked for, time of booking, and how you booked. However, any such organisations will not be permitted to contact you directly, unless you have agreed to this with the partner organisation directly at the time of booking. We will not share sensitive information or your payment details without your prior consent.
Access to the personal data we may hold about you
You can ask us whether we are keeping personal data about you and request a readable copy of any personal data which we keep about you, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Although we may require you to provide proof of your identity in advance, we will aim to respond to your request within 30 calendar days and we will provide the information without any charge.
We will also allow you to challenge the data that we hold about you and, where appropriate, you may have the data erased, rectified, amended, or completed.
