This privacy notice was last updated on Thursday 24 May, 2018. We may update this privacy notice from time to time. When we do so we will notify you of any significant changes by providing a notice on our website or by emailing you. It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.
This website may include links to third-party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share data about you. We do not control these third-party websites and are not responsible for their privacy statements.
We may collect and process the following data about you:
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:
We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy notice.
We may sometimes collect information relating to your health (this is known as a Special Category of Personal Data) where this is necessary to help us provide a service to you (for example if you need particular access assistance). By submitting such data to us voluntarily, you will be consenting to us using that data for the purpose of responding to and complying with your request.
What happens if you do not provide requested information? Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, in order to send you tickets that you purchase through the website, we need to know your name so we can identify you and your address if you have asked us to post your tickets to you). In this case, we may have to cancel a contract you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

Advertising content may be adjusted depending on personal information. In some instances, this targeted advertising may be created by third parties and the information will be collected and held by these third parties outside of our control. We accept no responsibility for the content of advertising material, including any error, omission or inaccuracy contained within it.
Unless you have told us otherwise, we may use your information to send you newsletters, bulletins and other information about your chosen services (for example, Culture Whisper exclusive discounts or membership offers).
This may include communications by post, telephone, email and messages to your mobile phone and through social media (such as Facebook and Twitter) about us and our business partners’ products and services, events and offers, including for a reasonable time after you may have ceased a subscription or service with us.

You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by calling us on +44 (0)207 1831147, emailing us at [email protected] or simply logging into your www.culturewhisper.com account and amending your preferences directly.

Why we collect it
We require this information to provide goods and services to you, to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, for general profiling of our audiences, to let you know about other goods and services in which you may be interested, and to inform you about changes and improvements.

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we are required by law to do so.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
For how long do we keep your information?
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.
