At the London Sinfonietta, we respect your right to privacy and take it very seriously. Any personal information that you give to the London Sinfonietta will always be stored securely, and will never be shared with another organisation or individual without your express permission.
The London Sinfonietta is a registered data user under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998, and complies with the terms set out in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) 2018. We take all reasonable steps to protect the personal information that you give us and ensure your personal information is kept securely. We use a customer relationship management (CRM) system called Tessitura, as part of Southbank Centre’s Tessitura Consortium Group.
If you want to find out more about your rights when it comes to your personal data, you can read the Information Commissioner’s Office guidance here. If you support our charity, and want to know more about your rights as a donor, please visit the Fundraising Regulator’s website here.
How we process your data
As a Resident Orchestra at Southbank Centre, we are also a member of its Tessitura Consortium; a CRM system managed by Southbank Centre and licenced by the Tessitura Network and Metropolitan Opera. We use it to securely store our customer data. Access to this data is strictly controlled, and can only be used by relevant staff members who need it in order to process communications and reports. We use Tessitura as our main CRM system and therefore use it to hold and process our customer data, whether you are a customer of Southbank Centre or have consented for us to process your data via another venue or channel.
When you enter personal information onto our online registration form(s) it will only be used for us to contact you either by email or post about London Sinfonietta events, promotions and campaigns. All of our e-communications are sent and processed in an online application called Wordfly; a secure email marketing database that is compliant with the latest EU data legislation. If you have signed up to hear from us via our online form(s) or have agreed to hear from us when booking a ticket at one of our venues or partners, we will add you to our mailing list in order to let you know about our events, news and announcements by e-mail or in some cases by post. If you are one of our existing generous donors then we will also let you know by post about other opportunities to support our ongoing efforts to make new music.
In most cases, if you have given us your data for any reason then we will seek your consent to send you marketing and fundraising communications. We will be clear and unambiguous about what we intend to do with your data, so it is clear what you are consenting to. We usually gain consent via an online form, but on some occasions it may be via verbal or written consent. When communicating with you we will always make it clear how you can update and change your preferences or indeed opt-out of receiving future communications. We recognise that your circumstances may change so we may prompt you to update your preferences after a reasonable length of time. If you ever wish to contact us regarding your preferences or how we use your data you can do so by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Under the terms of the General Data Protection Regulation, you are entitled to make a subject access request to us regarding your personal information. You can do this by contacting us at email@example.com. We will respond within one month from receiving your request. You can learn more about your rights regarding subject access requests on the Information Commissioner’s Office website.
Our commitment to our donors
The London Sinfonietta is a registered charity (no. 255095) and must raise funds to support its ambitious programme. If you make a donation to the London Sinfonietta, we usually collect the following data: your full name, address, email address and the relevant payment information. We use this data to administer your donation, provide you with information about events and opportunities (as applicable to your membership), and deliver communications to you. When communicating with you about your donation, events and opportunities, we will make it clear how you can update and change your preferences or opt-out of receiving future email or postal fundraising communications from us.
If you have made a Gift Aid declaration to the London Sinfonietta, we are required to keep this information for a minimum of 6 years from the date of your most recent donation, as stipulated by HMRC.
We also raise funds for our work using the online donation service www.charityckeckout.co.uk which is maintained by the limited company Online Giving Ltd. Any donations that you give to the London Sinfonietta through Charity Checkout are covered under its terms and conditions, which can be found here.
The London Sinfonietta is also registered with the Fundraising Regulator and is compliant with the Fundraising Code of Practice, which can be found here.
As a National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) of Arts Council England, the London Sinfonietta is required to enter into data sharing agreements with other NPOs, including the partners and venues we work with. This means that if you book a ticket for a London Sinfonietta event through one of these venues, you may be asked if you are happy to hear from us. If you do not wish to hear from the London Sinfonietta, you can leave this question blank (it often takes the form of an opt-in box) and we will not have access to your personal data nor be able to contact you. However, if you do wish to hear from us, please opt in at the point of booking, and you will receive an email from us shortly after the event has taken place, and be added to our mailing list. Your data will always be stored securely in our CRM system, and you are free to opt out of these communications at any time.
