As of May 25, 2018, the processing of personal data must comply with the rules of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a European regulation that applies to every
organization established in an EU Member State.

We believe it is important that you understand how we handle your personal data so that you can trust that your data is in good hands. We ensure that the personal information you give us is always treated confidentially.

The type and volume of the personal data we process differs per product and service. Data might include: 
First and last name, address, place of residence, telephone number, gender, date of birth, e-mail address, products/performances you have purchased, purchase details, payment details, areas of interest, your feedback about your visit, photos/camera images, complaints, contact history, IP address, social ID, cookie ID (read more about cookies in our cookie statement) and website behavior, and openand-click behavior with regard to e-mails.


We only process data necessary to:

  • conclude a transaction for a product or service (e.g. obtaining a ticket for a performance);
  • perform the agreed service or deliver a product (e.g. send tickets);
  • inform you of our various products or services (e.g. our general newsletter) and to tailor this information as much as possible to your interests and personal preferences (e.g. targeted offers by e-mail);
  • give you a favorable experience when using our website. We use functional, analytical and tracking cookies (and similar techniques).
  • conduct market research, develop products and services, and for other purposes related to general business operations;

Ticket sales example
To properly handle your purchase of tickets and related services, we collect your name, address, postal code, place of residence, telephone number and email address. We ask for your name so that we can contact you using a personalized greeting. We ask for your e-mail address and telephone number so that we can notify you in case of a cancellation or change regarding your purchased performance.
Confirmation of your order and e-tickets is also sent by email. If you request your tickets to be sent by mail, we use your address, postal code and city/town information, and we give these details to our delivery service so that they may deliver your tickets to you. We also receive information about your payment from your bank or credit card company.
When you buy tickets for a performance from us, you receive two service e-mails per performance in order to make your experience as enjoyable as possible. One week before your visit, you will receive information about your purchased performance. This information will include practical details of the performance (e.g. whether recordings will be made for TV / DVD), mention of available parking facilities,
intermission times and ending times, options to supplement your evening with a theater dinner or drink and appetizers package, and if necessary, information about any special circumstances in or around the theater.

One day after your visit, we will send you a request for feedback email, giving you an opportunity to share your experiences and thoughts regarding the show and the theater. We send these e-mails from our service department. You can choose not to receive these e-mails by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the e-mail. We also use e-mail to notify you of cancellations or changes regarding your purchased performance.

To buy tickets online, you need to create an account. When creating an account, you will be asked for various contact details and you will be asked to choose a username and password. We save this information so that you do not have to enter it again for subsequent purchases. You can personally change the data in your account as needed.

Customer profile
We can use the customer data supplied by you to develop a customer profile. Furthermore, we can combine the data provided by you with other data in order to gain insight into our customer base and to be able to offer our products/services to you in a more customized manner. We do this in the following ways: 

  • When you create an account, buy a ticket or otherwise provide data, we can consolidate this data (e.g. your age, gender, postal code, type of performance, purchased tickets, amount spent, and the online usage information from your website visit).
  • We can supplement the data we receive from you with additional information supplied from external sources.
