The information we collect

Users of our website can visit without revealing their identity or providing information about themselves.

We collect information directly from users when they voluntarily submit their personal information to us. At certain parts of our web site, we provide the opportunity for users to make purchases of goods and services, join a mailing list and request information.

When this sort of information is collected we will provide the reason for collection and how the information will be used. We reserve the right to add to this list of opportunities available to our users to interact with us. It is completely up to users whether or not to provide us with their personal information.

A ‘cookie’ is a small text file which collects browser information. Although presently The Story Museum website does not use cookies to collect the personal information of users, The Story Museum reserves the right to use cookies in others ways in the future.

Our use of collected information

Generally, visitors to our website are informed of the intended use for their personal information at the time of collection. Normally, personal information provided or collected is used to complete purchase of goods and services, and to respond to enquiries.

In accordance with the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) we may from time to time send you emails based on your past booking history. We will always give you the opportunity to opt out of any such emails in the future. In addition we give users the opportunity to opt in to a range of mailing preferences. You may update your mailing preferences at any time by logging into your account page or by clicking on the unsubscribe link on our email newsletters.

We do not sell or share visitor data with third parties, unless we have obtained your explicit consent to do so eg we may ask you if you would like to give your consent to receive marketing materials from a visiting company if you have booked tickets for an appearance by them at The Story Museum.

We also share anonymised visitor information (eg attendance figures) with our major funders as part of our funding agreements.

For further information on the data that we collect and we use it please refer to our Privacy Statement.
