Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information

When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely.

Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.

If you don’t want membership with Brilliant Theatre Arts or take part in any other events or activities, please inform us in writing to hello@brillianttheatrearts.co.uk.  After leaving us, we may retain your information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of the membership agreement and satisfying any legal or reporting requirements. We do this so we may continue to manage and process membership while with us, including forwarding any residuals or additional payments. In this situation, it is up to you to keep us up to date with your contact details (email and home address) so we may contact you if necessary.

Our website may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This privacy policy applies only to our website‚ so we encourage you to read the privacy statements on the other websites you visit. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other sites even if you access them using links from our website.

In addition, if you linked to our website from a third-party site, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third-party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site.

Transferring your information outside of the UK and Europe

As part of the services offered to you through this website, the information which you provide to us may be transferred to countries outside the UK and the European Union (“EU”). By way of example, this may happen if any of our servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the UK or EU or if we are submitting you for a commercial to be filmed/broadcast outside of the UK or EU. These countries may not have similar data protection laws to the UK. By submitting your personal data, you’re agreeing to this transfer, storing or processing. If we transfer your information outside of the EU in this way, we will take steps to ensure that appropriate security measures are taken with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this Policy.

If you use our services while you are outside the UK or EU, your information may be transferred outside the EU to provide you with our services.
