This Privacy Policy in accordance with the Privacy Act 1993, tells you what information we collect, what we do with it and your rights to view, correct or change it.

The Office of the Privacy Commissioner ( provides further details of the New Zealand Privacy Act and how it protects personal information in New Zealand.

What we collect
As part of our operations, we may gather certain types of information from our users, ticket purchasers, donors, supporters and other individuals with whom we connect:

  • Personally Identifiable Information
    This is provided by you when you register for services that we may offer. Examples of these services include sale of tickets and our email communications or competitions. Providing this information will always be optional for you. However, some services may not be available to you if you chose not to provide it.
  • Aggregated Data
    This information is generated by our systems as they track traffic through our websites and ticketing system. This information does not identify you personally and is not linked to the personally identifiable information that you may have provided.

Who we share this information with
We will not share the information that we collect with any third parties apart from where you have given direct permission for such information to be passed on to specific third party organisations (typically producing companies) for their use in promoting shows and other events. In the event that we do share your information with a third party we require these organisations to agree to comply with the Privacy Act 1993 and with strict conditions governing how personal information is to be handled. In instances where event promoters require the sharing of customer’s personal information in order to qualify for special events or offers and this is clearly disclosed by event promoters prior to booking, the booking will act as an agreement to the conditions of the offer and will supersede The Meteor Theatre’s privacy settings.

The information may be hosted with a service provider. Our agreements with them protect the information that we collect from any use by them that we have not authorised. The aggregated data (not the personally identifiable information) may be shared with third parties such as venue hirers, advertisers and/or business partners. Your personally identifiable information may be shared with third parties when we believe in good faith that we are required to do so by law. If we have your prior permission (which we would ask for at the time of collection), we may share the information with specified third parties.

What else we do with the personally-identifiable information
We have collected this information in order to provide the best possible service to you. To this end we may use the information that you provide for the following purposes:
