Our Policy For Handling Your Personal Data 

Who We Are

Our company, Stage One Theatre School, is hosted on the Wix.com platform. Wix.com provides us with the online platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data may be stored through Wix.com’s data storage, databases and the general Wix.com applications. They store your data on secure servers behind a firewall. 

 

All direct payment gateways offered by Wix.com, and used by our company, adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

 

We receive, collect and store any information you enter on our website or provide us in any other way. We may use software tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information, and methods used to browse away from the page.

 

What We Are We Doing
The information collected by Stage One and Wix will be stored and processed electronically. Your personal details are required in order to contact you and, if applicable, to do business with you. This forms the lawful basis under which we collect this information; without it we cannot get in touch with you or do business with you. 

 

When you conduct a transaction on our website, as part of the process, we collect personal information you give us such as your name, address and email address. Your personal information will be used for the specific reasons stated above only.

Why We Need It 

We need to know basic personal data to register your membership, and keep you up-to-date with our activities. 

What We Do With It 

We will not share your information with any third party, but we use third party suppliers to store your data and to help us keep it secure. We collect as little information as possible to provide our services to you. We have a legal duty to keep your information secure, and we will only use your details to provide our services to you.

How Long We Keep It 

We will generally keep your personal data for an indefinite period of time, so that we can maintain your membership and keep you up to date with Stage One classes, activities and productions. This includes our ongoing newsletters and information communications via email. Your data will be kept with us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information.You have the right to withdraw consent at any time. 

 

What Are Your Rights? 

If we no longer require the information you provided, we will dispose of it securely.  You have the right to access the information we hold about you, and we will supply this to you in an electronic format if you ask us. You can request that we delete your personal details and we will comply with that unless we are prevented by law or other regulations; for example, due to record keeping, safekeeping or accounting purposes.
