Privacy Policy

1927 is committed to protecting your personal information and being transparent about the information we hold on you, whether you are an audience member, participant, customer, a website visitor, part of our membership scheme, a potential sponsor and funder, a creative collaborator, freelancer or job applicant.

From its home in the heart of Margate, 1927 crafts popular and ambitious theatre that confounds the senses and bamboozles the boundaries between animation and performance. Led by Director and Writer Suzanne Andrade and Illustrator and Animator Paul Barritt, 1927 captivates audiences with exhilarating and entertaining hybrid shows that have a unique theatrical language.

Using all the weapons in our creative armoury - storytelling, animation, performance, music and digital innovation - our mission is to identify, listen to and collaborate with exceptionally talented artists, teachers, young people and audiences to expand our collective creative horizons, means of self-expression and engagement with the world around us. As well as developing unique theatre productions, 1927 are committed to developing new forms of creative engagement with our local communities, inspiring a new generation of theatre makers. Talent development is one of our driving aims.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to provide a clear and concise explanation of what information 1927 may collect about you, and how we hold, process and store this information.

Personal Information

1927 collects, holds and processes personal data from our audience members, customers, collaborators, workshop participants, employees, freelancers and job applicants.

Personal data or personal information can mean the details that you may provide about yourself, and, any further information that identifies you, such as, your name, address, telephone number, email address, country of residence or any photographs.

We may need to collect and hold some sensitive information when there is a clear reason for doing so. For example, certain funders may require us to collect information about gender, ethnicity, disability, religious belief or sexual orientation. This information enables us to demonstrate to our funders our reach into local communities, and also helps us to best think about how we can be even more diverse and inclusive. This information is anonymised, and stored securely with access limited to the relevant staff members. We will only retain this information for as long as required before destroying and deleting.

Collecting Your Information

  • We may collect personal information about you when:

  • you register with our subscription service

  • if you register for a workshop or an event

  • if you collaborate on a production with us

  • if you contact us about any of our products or services (whether online, in person, or by phone)

  • if you apply for a job with us

Most of the personal information we hold is provided directly by the individual themselves, but some data can be provided by third parties, such as a referee.

We will occasionally share personal data with other organisations where it is of legitimate interest, such as, providing an attendance list for a venue hosting one of our events or workshops. Third party services may also collect information on our behalf, such as Eventbrite (when signing up to an event), or MailChimp (our subscription provider). These companies will also have their own privacy statements.

Once 1927 has achieved charitable status, it is likely that we will introduce additional third party services which will aid revenue generation and to help us process donations, for example, Paypal, Just Giving. We will update our Privacy Policy once we’ve achieved charitable status and have identified what additional suppliers we will be using.

If you do subscribe to the 1927 mailing list, we will send you regular updates on our work and events. Each email we send you will include details of how to unsubscribe from our mailing list. We will not contact you again if you choose to opt out of this service.

1927 has social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo, and YouTube. If you connect with us on any of these sites, depending on your settings and the privacy policies for those sites, you may give us permission to access your information on those accounts or services.

Information for employees, job applicants and collaborators:

If you apply for a role with 1927, we will hold the personal information you provide us with to help us to assess your suitability for the post you are applying for. We also record and analyse all our recruitment processes so that we can monitor how well we are attracting the best possible candidates for each role. All HR information will be kept securely with access to only those staff members who need to see this information. All paper records will be kept locked away securely. Equality and Diversity Forms are kept separately from application documents.

If we need to disclose information to a third party, for example, when we need to obtain disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service, we will not do so without asking you beforehand unless the disclosure is required by law.

If you do apply for work with 1927, we will only hold your personal data for the purposes of the recruitment round. We will not hold your personal information for any longer than is necessary unless you give us express permission to do so. On some occasions, we may be required to retain recruitment data for an extended period of time. This will be based on funding requirements and will be reflected in recruitment documents.

Security Measures

We take the security of your data very seriously:

  • all digital personal information has appropriate technical controls in place to protect it

  • sensitive information is kept in password protected locations, and is restricted to the appropriate staff members

  • personal information is deleted when it is no longer required for the original purpose for which it was collected

  • paper based copies of personal information is stored in locked locations and access is limited to the relevant staff members

Our network is protected and routinely monitored. We regularly review who has access to what information to ensure that access to personal information is appropriate and restricted.

Where we use external companies that may process data on our behalf, we will check that these companies comply with the law and our policy before working with them.

We will only share your data where we have your explicit and informed consent, unless, however, we are required to disclose your details to the police, legal advisors or other regulatory bodies in the event of any judicial investigation.

We regularly review the length of time we keep personal data for, and, we will only keep information for as long as required to complete the original purpose of collection. Our funders may require us to provide information, reports and data on our activities, including specific analysis of audience attendance rates and relevant profiling, numbers of attendees at workshops etc. Once reports have been compiled, we would then look to securely destroy or delete any personal information that had been collected.

For recruitment processes, we will delete any personal details held from unsuccessful applicants once the successful potholder has been in place for a period of up to 3 months. However, we may ask applicants if we can retain their details on file if we have similar vacancies becoming live in the future. If applicants are willing for their details to be retained by 1927, personal details will be secured as per this policy.
