Data Protection Policy

The Citadel is dedicated to preserving the privacy of its customers. This Data Protection and Security Policy lets you know about our policy for the collection and use of information about you and your transactions with us.


  • We do not share your information or details with third parties without your prior permission.
  • Email - we will only send you emails if you specifically give us your consent to do so.
  • As a Certified Merchant, you can guarantee your credit card details are completely secure.


We will handle data about you in accordance with the United Kingdom's Data Protection legislation (Data Protection Act 1998). We maintain strict security standards and procedures with a view to preventing unauthorised access to your data by anyone, including our staff, whether this is on computer or on paper. We use leading technologies such as (but not limited to) data encryption, fire walls and server authentication to protect the security of your data. All our staff and whenever we hire third parties to provide support services, we will require them to observe our privacy standards and to allow us to audit them for compliance.


When you purchase tickets our booking form asks you to give us information specific to that purchase, including your billing address, shipping address, credit card information and email address. The information that you provide is used to process and send your tickets. We also use the information to contact you if there is a problem with your booking. We do not make our customer list available to other companies.


All of our transactions automatically take place on a secure server. All of your personal information is encrypted before it is transmitted over the Internet. None of our customers have ever reported fraudulent use of a credit card as a result of purchases made at

Note: Most banks either cover all the charges that result from unauthorized use of your credit card or limit your liability to 50, the maximum liability allowed under the Fair Credit Billing Act. You must notify your credit card provider of the unauthorized use in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.


When you buy from us online our system automatically gathers purchase data.

We use this information in two ways:

  1. We review what kinds of products and services appeal most to our customers as a group. This statistical information helps us improve our offerings in the same way that other companies change their catalogue based on what sells best.
  2. We use information such as the number of purchases attendees make and the genres they buy to make offers to them we believe will be of interest.

We do not give out any information about you, as an individual, to anyone, except to complete your transactions, or to comply with valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order.
