Pop-up Globe works together with various organisations to bring you the productions that you love.

• venues, where we present the productions or events you buy tickets for, may give us certain information about you, including your name, email and postal address. Information about how we use your information is available in paragraph D.

Information on your preferences. We may collect information about productions you like or products you buy or enquire about (e.g. as part of a survey or from your review of a production or event). We may also hold information on interests and demographic categories inferred from your interactions with us in order to provide you a better service and to provide you with more focused information. For example, if you buy tickets to a certain show and lots of people who went to that production also bought tickets for a different production, we might send you information about that production.

Information from other companies. We will hold information (e.g. your interests, purchases and household type) provided to us by other companies.
