Privacy Policy

We are committed to protecting your privacy. We collect various personal details about you when you purchase tickets online e.g name, home address, billing address, telephone number, email etc). We use the information we collect about you to process orders and to provide a more personalised service. Collecting these details allows our system to create a customer account for you in order that we can sell you tickets. Customers have the option to have their tickets sent to their home address if time allows, or if collecting tickets in the gallery, we may need to use your home address as a means to identify you as the purchaser, as we do not retain customers' credit card details on our system. Having a record of your personal details also allows us to identify you if we need to contact you regarding your booking, or if you need to contact us to change your booking. We are also able to help if tickets are lost by checking your personal details on the database. Additionally, our bank recommends that we take the billing address of people purchasing tickets in advance as this can help to prevent fraudulent use of credit cards. However, if you would prefer not to provide us with any of your personal information, you can buy tickets in person at any of the ticket desks in the galleries.
