How we use data about you
Depending on what you have asked to hear about, this may include:
Use of anonymous data
We share statistics about our audiences and participants with third parties (such as Arts Council England, BFI and venue partners) to report on our work, which may include data you gave us in a form. This kind of information will always be anonymised.
We use Google Analytics to collect basic log information and details of what visitors do on our website, as well as information provided by your computer, like your browser type. This data is anonymised and we will never attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website.

ESRL Agency is committed to a creative process which:
In order to deliver projects and keep participants safe, we may need information like medical details, school information, access requirements and notes and feedback on participants’ work with ESRL Agency. This may be passed to emergency services if necessary. For people under 16 years old, we will use a nominated adult as the first point of communication, switching to the child on consent from that nominated adult or where needed to fulfil a contract.
How we keep your data safe, and who sees it
To protect your privacy, we make sure your data is kept securely and access is restricted to appropriately trained staff who need to use it for the processes outlined in this policy. We will keep and process your data only for long enough to fulfil the purpose we collected it for. After that point, we will dispose of in a secure manner.
We will never sell your data, but it may be processed by limited third parties in the course of achieving the purposes listed above. Third parties that may process your data for us include payment platforms, venues who need the names of bookers, ticket sites, and companies who store our data.
Some of our suppliers run their operations outside the European Economic Area (EEA). This means they may not be subject to same data protection laws as companies based in the UK, but we will take steps to make sure they provide a level of protection which meets the requirements of UK data protection law.
We may share information about you with law enforcement agencies and other organisations or individuals if we are required to by law.

Opting out of marketing
We may communicate with you about ourselves, our events, ways to support us and other ESRL Agency. We will usually only do this if you tell us we can, for example by joining our mailing list. If you aren’t on our mailing list, but you have previously attended or enquired about an ESRL Agency client or creative, we may occasionally get in touch about similar projects we think you’ll want to know about.
You have the right to tell us to stop contacting you for marketing purposes. If you want to opt out, just email email@example.com to let us know, or click ‘unsubscribe’ within the email we have sent you.
