This policy explains what information we gather when you visit the ADC Theatre’s web sites, and explains how that information is used. The University of Cambridge, of which the ADC Theatre is part, is registered under the terms of the 1998 Data Protection Act.

From time to time logging may be enabled on the webserver hosting our websites. When logging is enabled the following data is automatically collected for each request:

Note also that the data recorded may be that of a web proxy rather than that of the originating client
- The username, when known during authenticated (logged in) access to the site
- The date and time of connection
- The HTTP request, which contains the identification of the document requested
- The status code of the request (success or failure etc.)

- The content of the HTTP User-Agent header supplied by the browser
Logging of additional data may be enabled temporarily from time to time for specific purposes.
In addition, the computers on which the web site is hosted keep records of attempts (authorised and unauthorised) to use them for purposes other than access to the web server. This data typically includes:
- The date and time of the attempt,
- The service to which access was attempted,
