This policy covers the websites operated by Starlight Stars.
We comply with data protection legislation such as the Data Protection Act 1998. This regulates the processing of personal data relating to you and grants you various rights in respect of your personal data.

You do not have to give us any personal data to use our website. If you wish to contact us to enquire about our services, we ask for your contact details, so we can respond to your queries.
By registering for our services, you agree that we may process the data you give us. The basis for processing any data we receive is to ensure we can safely and securely carry out our services.
When you enrol a student to have classes with Starlight Stars, we will collect the following personal data: parent or guardian’s name; contact details; name, age, gender and date of birth and postcode of student; and any medical conditions the student has. If the student is over 16 years of age, please ensure that you have their permission to share these details with us. This data is entered onto a secure database which is only accessible by our staff.
You are entitled to see the information held about you. You may review, correct, update or remove your personal data at any time by contacting us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for all Starlight Stars tuition.
The information you provide us is used in the following methods:
• To provide customer services and communicate with you about the dates of our services and how to continue to use them.
• To meet legal compliance requirements relating to children.
• To send you company news, information about new products and services we provide e.g. our productions, holiday workshops and theatre trips, events and special promotions. If you do not wish to receive marketing or communications from us you can send a removal request to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org or, if available, contact our office on 01279 966 466.
We may need to share your personal data with other companies in the Starlight Stars network, for example the examination board LAMDA when completing exam entry processes but only for the purposes outlined in this policy. All persons who have access to your data are bona fide members of the organisation and only have access to the data needed for them to safely and securely operate our services.
We do not pass on or sell your personal data to any third parties. We will only pass on information with your prior consent if it absolutely necessary in order to carry out the service we provide. For example, if a theatre company is looking for children for a performance and is interested in your child.
We may also disclose your personal data when we believe this is required by law, to enforce or comply with our terms and conditions or to protect the rights, property, safety of company, our customers or others.
We will hold your data until you give notice to stop receiving our services. After this time, your details will be deleted from our database and any other information destroyed.
If you wish to apply or enquire about working for Starlight Stars, we will collect details such as your name and contact details, so we can send you further details. If you make an application, we will collect more details about your job history and references.
