Blog Your privacy - our promise You’ll almost certainly have heard a lot about GDPR – the General Data Protection Regulation – which comes into force this week. You don’t need to take any action – your relationship with Kirkgate Arts is already covered by Data Protection regulations, and we can assure you that we will always prioritise your privacy and the security of any information we hold about you. GDPR is a good thing, because it’s about looking after your best interests. It strengthens your control of information about you. Ultimately, it’s about basic human rights. OUR COMMITMENT TO YOUR PRIVACY Your trust is important to us. So we want you to know we've updated our Privacy Notice to explain how we collect, store and handle your personal data. You can read the Privacy Notice here. Why we collect your data We want to give you the best possible experience with Kirkgate Arts. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to book with us; and we want to be able to tell you about performances and events which you might be interested in. How we collect your data We do this in a number of ways, including where you share information with us, such as when you make a booking for a show. We treat it with the utmost care and take appropriate steps to protect it. Know your rights You have many rights regarding your personal data. These include the right to see what data we hold, the right to update your information, and the right to have your data removed completely if you so wish.
