Privacy & Cookies

Teddington Theatre Club (TTC) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the TTC Web site and governs data collection and usage. By using the TTC website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

Collection of your Personal Information

TTC collects personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address or telephone number. TTC also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your postal code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favourites.

There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by TTC. This information can include: your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring Web site addresses. This information is used by TTC for the operation of the service, to maintain quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding use of the TTC Web site.

Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through TTC public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: TTC does not read any of your private online communications.

TTC encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from TTC so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. TTC is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the TTC and TTC family of Web sites.

Use of your Personal Information

TTC collects and uses your personal information to operate the TTC Web site and deliver the services you have requested. TTC also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from TTC and its affiliates. TTC may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.

TTC does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. TTC may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, TTC may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to TTC, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.

TTC does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.

TTC keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within TTC, in order to determine what TTC services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customised content and advertising within TTC to customers whose behaviour indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

TTC Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on TTC or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of TTC; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of TTC, or the public.

Security of your Personal Information

TTC secures your personal information from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. TTC secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorised access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

Changes to this Statement

TTC will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. Teddington Theatre Club encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how TTC is protecting your information.

Contact Information

TTC welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that TTC has not adhered to this Statement, please contact us. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that websites save onto your computer via your web browser. They are one of the most widely used technologies on the Internet and many essential website functions rely on cookies. 

The cookies we use don't collect any personal information about you and they can't harm your computer, tablet or mobile phone. They are there to allow our website to work, and to help us understand what information is most useful to visitors.

Your acknowledgement

By using this website you are accepting that TTC may set cookies on your computer or mobile device.

How we use cookies

Most cookies help us understand how our website is used by visitors, so that we can improve what we do online. We use Web Analytics tools for this. No personal information about you is collected. They look at things like how long web pages take to load, and what information visitors look at most. They also help identify any parts of our websites that aren't working as well as they should – so we can fix things.

Types of cookies used by Teddington Theatre Club

Cookies fall into two general categories: first party cookies (which we set) and third-party cookies (which are set by partners).

First-party cookies

These cookies are set by TTC. For the most part, they enable essential functionality on our website (particularly for registered users who are creating and updating content). They also include Web Analytics cookies, which we use to understand how our websites are used by visitors so that we can improve them.

Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are not set by TTC, but by selected partners with whom we work. They don't collect or send any personal information about you.

Social media cookies

Some pages on our websites let you share our content through social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. Sometimes we may embed videos from sites such as YouTube. These sites set their own cookies, which we don't control. You might like to check their websites to find out more about their cookies policies.

How to opt-out of Google Analytics tracking

Google provides an add-on component for the major browsers which will allow you to opt-out of non-personally identifiable tracking for analytics purposes.

Managing cookies

The most popular web browsers all allow you to manage cookies. You can choose to accept or reject all cookies, or just specific types of cookie.

What happens if you reject all cookies?

You'll still be able to use our website (as long as you're not an administrator of this website which requires acceptance of cookies).
