Privacy Policy and Data Protection

Irish Theatre Institute respects your right to privacy. Irish Theatre Institute’s policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our clients and will never intentionally disclose individually identifiable information about its customers to any third party without first informing the customer and receiving that customer’s permission.

Our server is hosted on a secure site provided by Blacknight and our Shopping Cart/Event Registration facility is provided by Global Payments trading as Realex Payments.  

ITI respects the rights of its users and visitors to our websites and does not, as a general rule, collect personal information about visitors to the website. However any personal information volunteered to ITI through the use of web registration forms or email will be treated with confidentiality and security.

Visitors to ITI sites should be aware that each time they visit a website there are two general levels of information about their visit that can be retained. The first level comprises statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate and non-individual specific basis of all browsers who visit the site, and the second is information that is personal or particular to a specific visitor who knowingly chooses to provide that information.

Data Collection

For general browsing on our websites, online newsletters and interaction with social media channels no personal information is submitted to us, although certain statistical information is available to us via our internet service provider and analytics software.

This information may include:  the logical address of the server you are using; the top level domain name from which you access the internet; the type of browser you are using; the date and time you access our site and your visit journey; your location based on your IP address; demographic statistics via search engines.

This statistical and analytical information and data can be collected through the standard operation of our Internet servers and logs as well as “cookies”. Typically, cookies involve the assigning of a unique number to the visitor.

Visitors should be aware that Irish Theatre Institute is unable to control the use of cookies or the resulting information by other third parties such as advertisers or parties hosting data for Irish Theatre Institute. One simple way to prevent the use of cookies is to activate the facility that is available in most web browsers that enables the user to deny or accept cookies. However, visitors should realise that certain cookies may be necessary in order to provide the visitor with features such as the customised delivery of information.

Some of the above information is used by us to create statistics which allow us to assess the number of visitors to our sites, identify the frequency of visits to the pages, and generally help us to make our sites more user friendly and improve our methods of online communication.

Throughout ITI’s websites you may have an opportunity to send us information relating to you such as through the “contact us” pages or any other area where you may send emails, request brochures, enter contests or respond to any promotions.

By choosing to participate in these, you will be providing us with some level of personal information relating to you. This information will only be used by Irish Theatre Institute for:

(a) the purposes for which it was provided by you; 

(b) verification purposes and statistical analysis;

to provide you with details of products, services, contests, competitions or promotions being provided or run by Irish Theatre Institute or any of its associated companies or any identified third party that we may select and which we may think would be of interest to you.

If you have provided credit card details, these will only be used for the purpose of handling an individual registration or purchase. No credit card details are stored on this site or by Irish Theatre Institute.

Right of rectification or erasure

You are entitled to have personal data corrected if inaccurate, or in certain cases erased. If you wish to apply to correct or delete data please write to info@irishtheatreinstitute.ie setting out the reasons for your request. This will be addressed within 30 calendar days of the receipt of your request.
