We may also send you surveys about the group. Telephone numbers are held in case we need to get in touch with our members urgently for volunteering opportunities or event cancellation at short notice. This contact data will be held for two years after which members are asked to re-register. If re-registration does not occur within 30 days all contact information will be deleted from our database.

Customers who have not agreed to receive information on future productions will have contact information retained in the customer list for issuing tickets and advising on any changes to the production for which they have purchased. This information will be deleted from our records once the production has finished.
If customers choose to make a donation via Gift Aid we will pass information to HMRC to enable us to reclaim the tax on the donation.
Shakespeare Live Volunteers
From volunteers involved in a production (including actors, directors, crew and front of house staff) we will retain the information that you provide us on the membership list. By agreeing to take part in the production you will automatically be added to the membership list. See Shakespeare Live Members section above. Addresses and dates of birth collected for the purposes of the production will be deleted after the production as they are not stored on the members list. During auditions for a production, you will be asked to provide measurements for costumes and your consent for us to take and use photographs and video on our website and social media. Measurements will only be stored until the production is finished.
For a child under 18 we will also collect the child’s date of birth and parental or guardian details. In addition we will need to collect information as required by the Council in which you live in order to apply for a Performers Licence. We will hold this information for as long as is required by regulation.
What is the legal basis on which we hold your information?
We will hold your information on a contractual basis to fulfil your request to become a member, a volunteer or to purchase tickets and to keep you informed about any changes to the production for which you have volunteered or purchased tickets for.
We will hold your preference for marketing communications on a consent basis, so you must give us your consent for us to sent you information about our productions. We have a legitimate interest in holding consent obtained from volunteers for the use of photos and videos for promoting the activities of Shakespeare Live.
