  5. Membership data
  6. Membership is defined as "everyone who is up to date with the fee and has agreed to work towards the objectives of The Company"

    We store data about our current members (and any recently lapsed members who have not asked to have there data erased) in order to maintain our relationship with those members and to keep records of who is up to date with the membership fee. If you don't specifically ask to be removed from this data set when you leave you're details will be erased 12 months after your membership has elapsed.

  7. Current cast and crew
  8. If you are involved in one of our plays at any point of the production cycle we will probably ask for your contact details if you are not already a member. When a play and any administration tasks for that show are completed, if you are still not a member your details will be erased.

  9. Other data
