What we use your information for

Depending on the preferences you have indicated and your relationship with The Coronet Theatre, we will use the personal information you have provided to:e

  • provide goods and services to you
  • process donations that you make to us
  • send you communications by post, telephone or electronic means in order to inform you of other products, services or events related to The Coronet Theatre
  • ask you to participate in surveys and market research
  • conduct fundraising activities and ensure our fundraising resources are used in the most effective and efficient manner

Building an understanding of audiences, members and supporters and improving communications

We use various techniques including market research and audience profiling techniques to help us understand our audiences, customers, members, donors and potential supporters. This includes gathering information from you as well as publicly available resources to give an insight into your interests and inclination to attend The Coronet Theatre more frequently, join as a member, or make a donation to support The Coronet Theatre.

We do this because it allows us to understand our audience members and the people who support us, and helps us to send appropriate communications and make appropriate requests to those who may be able and interested in attending or giving more than they already do.

When building a profile we may analyse geographic, demographic and other information relating to you in order to better understand your interests and preferences in order to contact you with the most relevant communications.

Opting into and out of marketing and other fundraising communications

With your consent, we will contact you to let you know about upcoming events, offers from our shop and restaurants, updates on our plans and progress we are making, and to ask you to join as a member, make a donation or give other types of support.  Occasionally, we may include information from our partner organisations or organisations who support us in these communications.

We make it easy for you to tell us how you want us to communicate, in a way that suits you. Our forms have clear marketing preference questions and we include information on how to opt out when we send you marketing. If you don’t want to hear from us, that’s fine.  Just let us know when you provide us with your information, change your preferences at any time by changing the relevant settings in the “Account” section of our website or contact hello@thecoronettheatre.com

Who we might share your personal information with

Your personal information might be passed to a third party if they need it to fulfil your order(s) for our goods and services, to execute the communications we send to you, to process a donation, or where you have otherwise consented to being contacted by selected third parties, such as artistic partners and associates. We do comprehensive checks on these companies before we work with them, and put a contract in place that sets out our expectations and requirements, especially regarding how they manage the personal information they have collected or have access to.

Examples of these third parties include our bank (in order to process Direct Debit and other payments), mailing houses (for distributing our events guides), and our bulk email distribution service provider.

Except as set out in this policy, we shall not disclose your personal information unless obliged to, or allowed to do so by law, or where we need to in order to run our business (e.g. where other people process information for us). In such circumstances, we ask those people to give us confidentiality or non-disclosure undertakings. We will not share your information other than as described above without your express consent.
