Both the London Coliseum and this website are run by English National Opera Limited, a charity registered in England and Wales (charity number 257210) (VAT number 539 3482 20) at London Coliseum St Martin’s Lane London WC2N 4ES (“ENO”).
Many websites, including londoncoliseum.org and eno.org, use digital tools to enhance user-friendliness and to make the site as interesting and relevant as possible for each individual user. Cookies are one of these useful methods that we use to enhance your experience of our websites.
We feel it is important for you to be informed about the cookies that we use and the purpose behind our use of them. This policy should be read alongside our Privacy Notice so that you can fully understand how we use your data.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file sent to your computer or device (such as mobile phones, tablets, and laptops) when you visit a web site. Stored in your web browser, the information can be retrieved to notify the particular web site you are visiting of your previous activity.
The text file information is comprised of:
- The name of the server the cookie was sent from
- Their ‘lifetime’ (i.e. how long they will be active) and
- A ‘value’ (usually a randomly generated number that is used to identify you when you visit our websites)
A cookie stores select, basic information based on your visit to the London Coliseum website. Examples of data about you that is stored by the cookie would be information you enter into a registration form, for example your email address, first and last names, and post code. The cookie is kept in your web browser (which is the program you use to access the internet, such as Google Chrome or Internet Explorer), usually in the browser’s ‘cookie file’.
Cookies will either last for the length of time you use the website, or may stay on your computer for a limited period of time to allow londoncoliseum.org to recognise you if you return to the sites. If you do return, the data in the cookie can be used to let the website know how you have used it (for example, which pages you have navigated between giving an idea of your areas of interest). They are used solely for this purpose, and can’t be used to collect information from your computer or device, or to access your files. They will not harm your computer or device and cannot expose them to cyber threats like viruses or other harmful malware, nor can they be used on their own to identify you.
How to control or delete cookies
