In addition to the promotional purposes stated above, we hold details of donations made, and standing orders, which we process for Gift Aid tax recovery.

5.3 Audiends and Performers
We hold your contact information, CV and (if appropriate) photograph so that, even if not selected, we can inform you of forthcoming audition opportunities. For those selected, we retain the right to use photograph and biographies (edited down where necessary) for the purposes of performance programmes, and to use your contact details on reference databases for the purpose of efficient organization of rehearsals and performances, and for consideration for engagement in future events.
