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. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted using 128 Bit encryption on SSL. When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear in the URL bar of your web browser.
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.
We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively. We may also use your personal information to detect and reduce fraud and credit risk.
Our website may also use the Google Analytics website recording service. Google Analytics is a product that has been developed by Google that we use to measure how many people visit this site and how they use it.
Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on. The information collected does not include bank details or any sensitive personal data so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.
We also do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data. Data collected by Google Analytics from the Google Analytics website is for Watton Pantomime Group’s internal use only. The information collected is used to improve our website usability and is stored and used for aggregated and statistical reporting.
