We The Curious may employ the services of third party data processors subject to adequate data security and data protection standards being met. These processors are obliged under the Data Protection Act to protect your data and may be criminally prosecuted should they breach the terms of their agreement with We The Curious or fail to meet their legal and regulatory obligations.

How will the information be used?

Administrative purposes
If you are buying tickets or using services from We The Curious we may ask you for personal information such as name, age, date of birth, address, telephone number or mobile number as part of the process.

Research and analysis
As a charity we want to be sure that we are making life-changing experiences for everyone. To monitor this we carry out geo-demographic analysis. This analysis is used to make decisions on how we develop our services for the people who have a relationship with us and those who don’t and to make sure our community are getting the best from us. When using personal information in this way we will anonymise the information before it is processed, so that no individuals can be identified.
