The data transmitted from your browser includes your IP address, the date and time of the visit the pages accessed, the access status/HTTP status code, your browser, your operating system and interface, as well as the language and version of the browser software. The legal basis for collecting and processing this personal data is our legitimate interest to be able to operate the website and provide you with access to the pages you wish to access.

The legal basis for collecting and processing this personal data is our legitimate interest in being able to process your transaction and in knowing more about our customers.

What do we use your personal information for?

We aim to be open and transparent when we collect your personal data and we will not do anything you would not reasonably expect.

With your consent, we will use your personal information to:

  • Process your purchases (events and merchandise) and to contact you about your purchase
  • Notify you of any changes to events, purchases, services and fundraising campaigns, which may be relevant to you
  • Ask you participate in surveys and market research

With your permission, we will use your personal information to:

Send you communications by email in order to inform you of our events, record label releases, artists and composers, fundraising and all associated Nonclassical activities.

How long do we keep your personal details?  

The personal data collected by Nonclassical is evaluated periodically to determine whether it is current and still needs to be held.

Subject to any legal retention requirements [e.g. Gift Aid regulations require appropriate records to be retained for seven years] you may notify Nonclassical if you do not wish your data to be held.

Keeping your details safe and secure

We mainly collect Personal Data electronically. We maintain technical and physical safeguards that are designed to protect the security and integrity of your Personal Data, and to guard it against accidental or unauthorised access, use, alteration or disclosure to unauthorised third parties. These measures include device encryption, firewalls and virus checking procedures.

If we collect your data on a paper form (e.g. at a Nonclassical event), your personal data will be uploaded securely to Mailchimp and  once that process is complete, your personal data will not be kept in any other format.

We regularly review our security systems to ensure that your Personal Data remains safe and secure.

Sharing your information

Nonclassical will not sell your information. We will not share your information with any third party except as stated in this Privacy Notice or as required to operate the website, provide our services to you and administer your transaction or otherwise as required or permitted by law.
