Privacy Policy

This privacy policy sets out how An Grianán Theatre uses and protects any information that you provide to us. An Grianán Theatre is committed to offering the best support and services possible to our customers. The service we offer is a range of top quality arts and entertainment events hosted here in the theatre and on tour to other locations. An Grianán Theatre is committed to ensuring that your information is kept safe. Any personal information you provide will only be used in accordance with this policy.

  • This policy explains:
  • What information we may collect about you
  • How we may use that information
  • In what situations we may disclose your details to third parties
  • Our use of cookies to improve the use of our website
  • Information about how we keep your personal information secure, how long we maintain it for and your rights to be able to access it

If you have any queries about this policy, please use the contact information at the bottom of this document to get in touch. An Grianán Theatre may change or update this policy occasionally. Any changes will be made available through an update to this document on our website.


We may collect the following information:

  • Full name
  • Contact information including telephone number, postal and email address
  • Demographic information such as preferences and interests
  • Other information relevant to customer surveys and/or offers
  • A record of your purchases and donations


We require your information to better understand your needs. It allows us to provide our customers with a better service and in particular for the following reasons:

  • Customer record keeping – Your booking with us is a contract of service. We require your details to ensure that the service is fulfilled accurately ie. That the tickets purchased go to the right customer.
  • If you have given us permission to do so, we will email you with information on new shows, special offers or other information which we think you’ll be interested to hear about.
  • We may use the information to improve our products or services


There are certain circumstances under which An Grianán Theatre may disclose your Personal Data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary. These are as follows:

  1. To our own service providers who process data on our behalf and on our instructions. In these cases, we require that these third parties comply strictly with our instructions and with data protection laws. For example An Grianán Theatre uses a number of Service Providers in order to process your data more effectively including the Box Office system Ticketsolve for processing ticket transactions and Realex for processing credit card payments. In addition we use Mailchimp for our newsletter bulletins and Send Mode for promotional text messages.

  2. Where we are under a duty to disclose your personal information in order to comply with any legal obligation (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies).
  3. To specific named visiting companies whose performances you have attended. In these cases, we will always ask for your explicit consent before doing so.
  4. We process ticket sales for two main partners, the Earagail Arts Festival and the Regional Cultural Centre. Both these organisations have access to their own data within Ticketsolve and to no other data in our system. We also process tickets for a range of other smaller local arts organisations that do not have access to Ticketsolve. We provide them with a hard copy of their customer records, limited to the information they need to run their event. If you book for another promoter’s event with us, our staff, Ticketsolve’s staff, and the staff of that promoter will have access to the information you have given us, apart from your financial details which will only be processed by Realex, our credit card payment processor


Data Protection law recognises that certain categories of personal information are more sensitive such as health information, race, religious beliefs and political opinions. We do not usually collect this type of information about our patrons unless there is a clear reason for doing so. (As an example, we collect health information from those who have given consent about visitors who may require access assistance.)

Some features on An Grianán Theatre’s webpage will not function if you do not allow cookies. Currently we operate an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that we assume you are happy with our use of cookies. If you are not happy, then you should either not use this site, or you should delete our cookies once you have visited the site, or you should browse the site using your browser’s anonymous usage setting (called “Incognito” in Chrome, “In Private” for Internet Explorer, “Private Browsing” in Firefox and Safari etc.)

Cookies on

Compliance Cookie – This allows us to know whether or not you have given consent to the use of cookies and therefore do not need to be presented with this consent request message again.

Session Cookies – These store temporary information to enable site functionality. They are automatically deleted when you close your browser.

Functional Cookies – These are used for core site functionality.

Google Analytics tracking – These are used to collect information about how you use our site. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the site. The cookies collect information in an anonymous form, including the number of visitors to the site, where they have come to the site from and the pages they visited.

Third Party tracking – includes conversion tracking for third party sites such as Facebook so if you are logged into your accounts on these websites during your browsing session, they are able to track that you visited pages on our website. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

Email tracking – Some emails that we send you have no tracking in at all, for example personal correspondence or emails with invoices attached. In our official email newsletters, sent using MailChimp, we put in tracking so that we can tell how much traffic those emails send to our site and we can track, at an individual level, whether the user has opened and clicked on the email. While Mailchimp collects this at an individual level we use it to understand open and click rates on our emails to try and improve their success. Every email we send has an unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.
