Privacy policy

Watermans website is owned and operated by The Hounslow Arts Trust Ltd. We are committed to safeguarding your privacy online and to this end have developed the following to deal with issues which may concern you. This may change from time to time so please check it periodically.

Personal Information

The details which you provide about yourself and any information which identifies you such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, country of residence and credit and debit card details (“Personal Information”) will be retained by us if you provide this information when using one of the services available on our website, such as posting us a message, subscribing to one of our email lists or when purchasing tickets. Personal Information will be held on our system and used for operational purposes such as the processing of bookings and orders in connection with our ticket ordering and buying services and for mailing list subscriptions.

In order to process a transaction, your Personal Information and card details will only be passed to third party service providers for the purpose of handling an individual transaction.

The Personal Information you supply when you join one of our e-mail lists will be used by Watermans to keep you up-to-date with events we produce. When purchasing tickets you will be given the opportunity to opt in to receiving news and information from other arts organisations. Watermans will only pass on your Personal Information if the relevant box has been ticked. In these instances, we supply your Personal Information for one-off use by the other arts organisation.

If you would like to revise the information provided to us at any time, or feel what we currently have on record is incorrect, you may update the information by e-mailing info@watermans.org.uk.

We may from time to time ask you for further information in order to update our records or for particular purposes. We will always tell you how we will use any further information received from you.

Log files

Every time someone visits our web site a log file is generated.

The log file records the time and date of your visit, the files that were requested, your IP (Internet Protocol) address, the referrer URL (if provided) and the browser version. We collect this information to help us diagnose problems and administer our systems and to audit the geographical make-up of users and how they have arrived at our site; that is, from what other sites have visitors arrived – this information being obtained from the referrer URL.

We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that you remain anonymous even though we include your IP address in our aggregate information. However, we can and will attempt to use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our terms and conditions, or to protect our services and other users.

Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. They make it possible for us to provide our online ticketing service and track visitor statistics, such as returning visitors.

Use and disclosure of Personal Information

If you contact us we reserve the right to keep a record of that correspondence and incorporate the information it contains into our database.

If we are requested by the police or a regulatory or government authority investigating illegal activities to provide information concerning your activities whilst using the network we shall do so. Similarly, we will disclose your Personal Information as part of a transaction whereby our company or business assets are transferred to a third party or if we are compelled to do so by law.

Protecting information

We take every precaution to protect your information. To this end all Personal Information is kept on a server in a secure environment. Only employees and approved contractors/developers we may appoint from time to time and who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Surveys and Promotions

From time to time we conduct surveys and promotions and may request information from you as part of these. Participation in these is entirely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose any information which might be required. We may also ask you whether you would like to receive promotional emails and mailings from us about our other products or services. Similarly, you are under no obligation to accept such information.

Correction/Updating Personal Information

If your Personal Information changes or if you no longer wish to subscribe to the service, we will endeavour to correct, update or remove the Personal Information provided to us as speedily as possible. This can be done by emailing us at info@watermans.org.uk
