Privacy Policy

StageArts.co.uk has a firm commitment to privacy. We take your privacy concerns seriously and want to make every reasonable effort to address them. That is why we have adopted the following policy, which explains our position on information-gathering and disclosure.

Your Personal Information

From time to time, we might ask for information that personally identifies you, as in our user surveys or registration for StageArts.co.uk services such as e-mail, newsletter or promotions. We use this information to operate StageArts.co.uk's services, provide you and your child with the highest quality of service.

We never disclose any personal information without your advance permission except when we believe that UK law requires us to do so or the disclosure is necessary to protect the rights or property of StageArts.co.uk, or as explained below or in our User Agreement.

In order to describe our services to prospective students, parents, advertisers and others, we may disclose user information but only in a form that does not identify individual users. We never under any circumstances disclose personal information to any other companies, theatrical agents or theatre groups.

Children's Privacy

StageArts.co.uk are particularly concerned with providing a safe online environment for children. StageArts.co.uk strongly recommends that parental supervision is required when a child uses the Internet. We also encourage parents to instruct their children never to give out personal information while online. Therefore, in areas operated by StageArts.co.uk that are directed to kids or when we learn that a user is under the age of 16, we will ask for parental consent before collecting any personal information about the child. StageArts.co.uk never ask your child to provide any additional personal information online. Parental consent can be provided in two ways:

  • Submission of a completed Parental Consent Form, including your signature, in person to one of the authorised centre managers
  • Submission of a completed Parental Consent Form, including your signature, by post to our address as stated in the contact us section of the web site.
  • StageArts.co.uk will not knowingly disclose personal information about users or students under the age of 16 without prior parental consent, except as required by law. If for any reason you wish to update or remove information about your child on the stage arts web site, you may call us at the numbers listed in the contact section or by using the feedback form.
