Belfast Music Society Limited is a registered company (NI637410) and a registered charity (NIC106859) in Northern Ireland, known by most people as ‘Belfast Music Society’ and ‘BMS’.
BMS’s main aim is:
to promote, by charitable means only, the knowledge and appreciation of chamber music to the general public in Northern Ireland, through the organisation and presentation of recitals and any other appropriate musical events that the Directors may determine.
Belfast Music Society is committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of people who attend our concerts and events, or who visit our website.
We do not sell, exchange or give your personal information to other companies and businesses for marketing purposes.
We do use your personal information to stay in touch with you, to ask you for feedback about our work, and to send you information about concerts and events that we organise.
Types of data we collect
We use sign-up forms to collect personal information from you when you come to our concerts or visit our website (such as your name, email address, postal address, and telephone number). We use this information for the following reasons:
- To tell you about forthcoming BMS concerts and events
- To ask your opinion about our events
- To request further information from you, occasionally
- To understand where our audience comes from
- Occasionally to tell you about other chamber music events that might interest you
- To check that our records are up to date and accurate.
We don’t pass your personal information to other people: we don’t sell it, exchange it, or give it to any other businesses or organisations for marketing purposes.
We store our postal database on a flash drive (memory stick) which is kept in a locked drawer in the BMS office. The database is password protected.
You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by:
- clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails
- emailing the BMS office at firstname.lastname@example.org
- writing to us at our registered office: c/o The Crescent, 2–4 University Road, Belfast BT7 1NH.
BMS does not have its own box office system. We use two third-party services, WeGotTickets and VisitBelfast, to offer online ticket purchasing.
You can buy a ticket in person at any of our events. We do not capture your personal information when you buy a ticket at the ticket desk, but we may have sign-up forms available at the events which you are welcome to complete at the time.
BMS works in partnership with a number of other organisations in presenting events. We do not share your personal information with any of these organisations. Occasionally, if our partners are organising events of their own that we think would interest you (such as other chamber music concerts), we may include details of those events in our own emails to you.
