As part of the services offered to you through the Fulham Opera Limited website, the personal information you provide may be transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). This may happen if any of the computer servers used to host the website are located in a country outside of the EEA. If the Fulham Opera transfers your personal information outside of the EEA in this way, we will take measures to ensure that your privacy rights continue to be protected as outlined in this privacy notice.

Fulham Opera Limited may transfer your data to the USA to organisations such as Facebook or Google. The data protection laws do not always offer the same levels of protection that of the EEA and therefore we will ensure that only organisations who are a part of the EU privacy shield initiative will handle your personal information. More details on this certification can be found at Please contact us at if you have any questions regarding this.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we will ensure that at least one of the following safeguards is employed:

•       We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission

•       Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts or codes of conduct or certification mechanisms approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe

•       Where we use providers based in the United States, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the Europe and the US.

If none of the above safeguards is available, we may request your explicit consent to the specific transfer. You will have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.

If you ask us to stop sending direct marketing communications to you, we will keep the minimum amount of information (e.g. name, address or email address) to ensure we adhere with such requests.


We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

As a legal requirement, we have to keep basic information about our customers (including Contact, Identity, Financial and Transaction Data) for six years after you cease being a customer for tax purposes.


We want to make it easy for you to access and amend the personal information that we hold on you, or request that we stop contacting you. We respect that your personal data is private and belongs to you.

If you have an online account or membership with us, you can amend your personal details and email contact preferences at any time. Please email fulhamopera@gmail.comat any time and we will immediately process any changes.

Or, if you prefer, you can contact us by writing to us to our postal address: Fulham Opera Limited, St John’s Church, North End Road, Fulham, SW6 1PB.
