Is any other information collected?
When you visit this website, anonymous information about your visit is recorded to assist with website administration. This statistical information does not identify individual users or tell us anything about you specifically, but it does record how visitors use our site. This information will not be used to identify individuals unless a law enforcement agency executes a warrant to inspect website activity logs. Theatre Alive uses clickstream data, cookies and web beacons to monitor website traffic, as outlined below.
Clickstream data refers to visitor logs and statistics that provide useful information about users' online experience without identifying individuals. Typical clickstream data collected includes:
- your server's address;
- your top-level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, .uk, etc.);
- times and dates of visits to the site;
- pages accessed and files downloaded;
- your operating system;
- the type of browser you are using; and
- the address of the last site you visited.
The Theatre Alive website uses clickstream data purely for statistical purposes (such as finding out the most popular searches and the times of day the website is used most and least) without identifying individual users.
A web beacon records web page usage statistics. The Theatre Alive website uses web beacons to collect clickstream data, but does not use web beacons to identify individual users.
Are there any risks to my privacy?

While we strive to protect your privacy, we cannot ensure the security of information transmitted to us online and individuals submit it at their own risk. If you are concerned about sending sensitive material to us over the Internet, you might prefer to contact us by telephone or mail.
