THE PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU
We collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you to enable us to provide you with tickets; to give you information on opening times; to help us monitor and improve the services we provide and, where we are permitted to, to tell you about upcoming events that we think you may like.
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together follows:
• Name and contact details – this includes your name, title, billing address, delivery address, email address and telephone numbers.
• Data of birth information
• Payment information – this includes your bank account and/or payment card details.
• Purchase history – this includes details about tickets and services you have purchased from us. It may also include your vehicle details if you have purchased parking.
• Profile information – this includes your username and password and your interests and preferences.

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.

The only exception to this is where you have specific disability needs which we need to be aware of in order to make reasonable adjustments and be able to perform our contract with you and comply with our obligations pursuant to social protection and equality laws (for example, when you make a booking using an Access Card).
IF YOU DON’T PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA
You don’t have to give us any of your personal data but, if you don’t, you are unlikely to receive our optimal customer service experience. Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with tickets to an event or parking at our venues).
KEEPING YOUR PERSONAL DATA UP-TO-DATE
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We will use your personal data where we need to perform a contract with you (for example, where you’ve bought tickets or parking), where it is necessary for our legitimate interests, where you have asked us to or where we need to comply with a legal obligation. We have described what we do with your personal data and why we do it in the table in the expanded part of this section.
You will only receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us, purchased products or services from us or told us that we can send them to you. You can tell us that you want to stop receiving marketing communications from us at any time.
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

• Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
• Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

We’ll process any such request as quickly as we can, but it might take a few days for all of our systems to be updated. Don’t worry about not getting updates on the tickets you’ve ordered or the events you’re due to attend – stopping marketing communications won’t stop service communications, so you’ll continue to get all the information you need.
