The Traverse Theatre believes in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies. This cookie policy applies to any Traverse Theatre product or service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference.

Does the Traverse Theatre use cookies?

Yes, we use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses the Traverse Theatre website has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe, if you have one. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device when you visit most websites. They are sent back and forth between the website’s server and your Internet browser to allow the website to remember actions you’ve made. Traverse Theatre uses cookies to enable the Traverse Theatre website features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to your Traverse Theatre account and our site.

What types of cookies does the Traverse Theatre use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to the Traverse Theatre’s website or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by the Traverse Theatre when you return to our site. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

What are cookies used for?

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit the Traverse Theatre website, remember your preferences, and give you a personalised experience that’s in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with the Traverse Theatre website faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the Traverse Theatre site.

If you would like more detail on the types of cookies use by the Traverse Theatre, please contact us at info@traverse.co.uk and we will be able to provide this detail.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Because your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Controlling cookies

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customised settings like login information.

What to do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?

You can opt-out of our advertising cookies here. If you do not want to receive cookies, you can also change your browser settings on your computer or other device you’re using to access our services. If you use the Traverse Theatre website without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on the Traverse Theatre website. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including Traverse Theatre cookies.
