Storage and security of your personal information
We follow generally accepted standards to store and protect the personal data we collect, both during transmission and once received and stored, including utilisation of encryption where appropriate.
We take every precaution to protect personal information you may submit to us both online and off-line. Our files, data, and information are securely stored and access is restricted to authorised staff only. When you enter personal information to book an event or purchase an item, that information is collected directly by us, or in some circumstances by a third party provider as set out above.
No credit card or address details are entered on our website as you will be transferred through to a secure payment gateway for these payments.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
International data transfers
We are a global business so personal information may be stored and processed in any country where we have operations or where we engage service providers, including Europe, Australia and the US.
We may transfer personal information that we maintain about you to recipients in countries other than the country in which the personal information was originally collected, and those countries may have data protection rules that are different from those of your country.
In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal information.
If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), the UK or Switzerland, we comply with applicable laws to provide an adequate level of data protection for the transfer of your personal information to the US. We are certified under the EU-U.S. and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles in connection with personal data transfers from the EEA, the UK and Switzerland. In addition, we have implemented intra-group data transfer agreements which you may view upon request.
Where applicable law requires us to ensure that an international data transfer is governed by a data transfer mechanism, we use one or more of the following mechanisms: EU Standard Contractual Clauses with a data recipient outside the EEA or the UK, verification that the recipient has implemented Binding Corporate Rules, or verification that the recipient adheres to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Framework.
How long we store your personal information
In some cases, there is a legal requirement to keep personal information for a minimum period of time. Except in those circumstances, we do not keep your personal information for any longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal information was collected or for which it is to be further processed.

Our website may sometimes contain hyperlinks to other websites. These websites may operate independently from us and may have their own privacy notices or policies, which we strongly suggest you review. If any linked website is not owned or controlled by us, we are not responsible for its content, any use of the website or the privacy practices of the operator of the website.
We are strongly committed to protecting the safety and privacy of children who visit our website or attend our centres and events. Our services are not targeted to, intended to be consumed by or designed to entice individuals of any age.
