We take your privacy seriously and we are careful to protect your personal information.

We collect data from you so we can give you a better service. Keeping your personal information on file means the process of booking tickets and finding out information is made easier for you. If you give your consent, we use your email address to keep you posted on our latest offers and news that we think you might like to hear about. Please see below for more detail about data protection at The Met.

Data Protection

Under the Data Protection Act, The Met has a legal duty to protect any personal information we collect from you. As the data controller for our own website, we only store information that is given to us voluntarily from you through email sign up services, or through phone/box office enquiries about our programme. We do not disclose any personal information to third parties, unless this has been specifically indicated on the website/form or point of data collection, for example, we will sometimes share your data with a visiting company or artist to enable them to develop their own audiences and make themselves more sustainable, but we will ask you at point of purchase if you are happy for us to do this. Any data collected will only be used for the information or service you have requested.

Other Websites

Within our website copy, we often link to other sites (such as artist websites, partner websites or external events linked to The Met or Head for the Hills) which are not covered by The Met’s Data Protection policy. Please bear this in mind when you are clicking onto a website outside of themet.org.uk.

Our website host is WordPress. Please see their privacy policy here: wordpress.org/about/privacy
