This Privacy Policy provides information for production professionals (‘you’) on what personal data we collect and how we use it.

What data do we collect?

When we start working with you to provide supporting artistes for your production, we collect your personal data to enable us to get in touch and manage your enquiry. For example, we’ll ask for:

  • Your job title or role.
  • Your business email address, contact number, and postal address.
  • Details of the production or company that you work for.

This data is used to manage our relationship with you and to enter into and fulfil our contract with you.

We also collect and process the information you provide when you choose to participate in feedback or service surveys, and this is for the purpose of improving our services.

  • Elements of your data may sometimes be shared with our suppliers who assist us in conducting our business (for example, our accountants), who will always be required to maintain confidentiality and follow data protection law.
  • We may also release information when it is appropriate to comply with the law (for example, for tax purposes).

We will never sell or share any of your details with any third party organisation for marketing purposes.
