You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies (Learn how here).  Doing so however will likely limit the functionality of our's and a large proportion of the world's websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites

It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so called "spyware".  Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.  Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.

The cookie information on this site was derived from content provided by Attacat Internet Marketing http://www.attacat.co.uk/, a marketing agency based in Edinburgh.  If you need similar information for your own website you can use their free cookie audit tool.

Privacy policy
The Broadway is committed to upholding your privacy and taking care with your personal data as a valued member, customer and user of this website. The personal data we collect, process or use is treated securely and in accordance with the Broadway’s privacy policy.  Whenever you give us personal data, you are consenting to its collection and use in accordance with this policy, including our use of cookies. 

What personal data do we collect? 
We log your Internet Protocol (IP) address in order to receive and send information from and to you over the internet (see 'Cookies' above). You will be asked for personal data such as your name, address and email address when you make a booking, sign up to the mailing list or make an enquiry. It would be impossible to complete any of these functions without giving us some information (eg we can't reply to your enquiry unless you give us some contact details to which we could send our reply), so we take it that by completing the form or transaction you have given us your express permission to collect the required information. In other word, if you don't want us to collect any of you personal information, simply don't give it to us, but of course the degree to which we can then communicate with you online will be reduced as a consequence. 

Booking tickets, paying BYT memberships and other online transactions

To protect your personal information, all online transactions are made via a secure website which is compliant with the latest security standards. The systems we use to deliver online transactions necessitate the creation of temporary cookies (see below) which are deleted once your transaction is completed. This is in line with the latest EU Directive on cookies which came into force May 2012.
