Privacy Policy

At THEDANCINGCHANNELS.COM, we believe strongly in protecting the privacy of our Members' personal information. This is a legal document that sets out how THEDANCINGCHANNELS.COM handles data which we use to identify you. You should read it in conjunction with the THEDANCINGCHANNELS.COM Terms and Conditions, of which this Privacy Policy forms part.

1. Emails from THEDANCINGCHANNELS.COM

You are probably most interested in how we will use your email address to communicate with you, so hereís our email promise, in plain English:

Service Emails. The team at THEDANCINGCHANNELS.COM hate spam and will never ever send you unsolicited emails. But there are some emails that we will need to send you to provide you with a good THEDANCINGCHANNELS.COM service. These include notifications that you have a message from another member, reminders about your membership expiring and guides on how to use the site. A full list of the types of emails you will receive to help you use the service most effectively (which we call Service Emails) are shown below:

 • Welcome email - the email we use to confirm your email address and password when you first register.
 • Payment receipt - this is sent when ever you purchase a ticket to view an event or movie
 • Automatic advance notice of events you have asked us to tell you about
 • Key service messages - if we need to notify you about changes to the service
 • New message notification and reminders - when you receive messages from other members.
 • Service suspension notices - if you break the house rules

As well as these Service Emails, you will also receive Special member discount notices, emails, and (if you have opted to receive them) our occasional newsletters. These emails genuinely help you make the most of the website and let you know when thereís new fun and interesting stuff to do. Hereís a bit more about them"
New Events and Special Discount Notices. We automatically send you our new forthcoming events calendar for those bands, artists and sporting events you have listed as of interest to you. They are an essential part of the THEDANCINGCHANNELS.COM service because they tell you when our next live broadcasts will happen and ensure you can pre-book your ticket to avoid disappointment. The good thing about these emails is that that they let you know when you should pop back to the site. Without them you would never know there was new stuff to see and read.

If at any time you decide you donít want to receive the New Events and Special Notices Alerts, all you need to do is uncheck the relevant box in your email preferences. Youíll find this on the "My Account Details" page which can be accessed from a tab on your homepage once youíre logged in. Instructions on this can be found at the bottom of every New Events and Special Notices Alert.

Newsletters. When registering, you are given the option to receive our occasional newsletters. We use these to notify you about new features on the site, ask your opinion, and tell you about services you might not be using yet.

We only send a newsletter when there is something worthwhile to tell you about, so your inbox will never be overflowing with guff from us. Generally youíll get a newsletter about once every six weeks.

If you decide you no longer want to receive these newsletters - or if you arenít currently receiving it and want to - all you need to do is change your email preferences. Youíll find this in the "My Account Details" area once youíre logged in.
