Promotional Imagery 

Consent will always be requested before taking photos or videos during our classes and activities that we may use for promotional purposes. 

CCTV

The Circus Hub has installed CCTV cameras in plain sight, in the main training areas, the entrances, the seating/bag areas, and office. There is no CCTV in the toilets or changing areas. 

The cameras record 24/7 with motion flagging. Their primary purpose is to review Health & Safety incidents after they occur. Recordings may be referenced when theft or damage has occurred. They may also be used for reviews of how to achieve the most effective use of the Circus Hub space. 

Older recordings are automatically deleted when expired. Off-site copies may be made and viewed where incidents are noted or suspected. Digital copies may be kept to be available for evidence, as required to Worksafe, the Police, and similar.   

Recordings made by the CCTV system are not shared publicly for sales or marketing purposes. They may however be used at the discretion of the Wellington Circus Trust where incidents have occurred, such as in cases of a criminal investigation. 

Sharing your personal information 

Besides our staff, we share this information with: 

  • a booking service provider in order to maintain our booking and payments systems 

  • email provider in order to undertake marketing activities 

  • law enforcement agencies in order to support relevant investigations  

 

These organisations are also subject to certain obligations with regard to the security of your personal data as processed via their systems.  

We will never lease, distribute, rent or sell your personal information unless we have your permission.
