Talking Heads (Southampton) Ltd. Privacy Policy

1. Introduction.

We are Talking Heads (Southampton) Limited (“we”, “our” and “us”) and we operate under the name of The 1865. Artists, record labels, merchandisers, venues and promoters (“Sellers”) use us to power their online stores and websites (our “Services”). Your privacy is important to us and we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy is intended to help you better understand how we collect, use and store your ”Personal Data” – defined as information that can be associated with or which relates to a person and/or could be used to identify a person.

The 1865 collects and processes information on three main user groups:
1. Sellers (e.g. an artist who has created a The 1865-powered store)
2. Customers (e.g. a fan who buys something from an artist or venue via a The 1865-powered store)
3. Service Providers (e.g. a fulfilment service provider)


When you use or interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data. Sometimes this will be on our own behalf and other times this will be on behalf of a Seller using our services. This is an important distinction for EU data protection law purposes and is explained in more detail in Section 15 below.

The 1865 will never sell on your Personal Data to third parties and if you choose to consent to receiving marketing emails from The 1865 you will be able to unsubscribe at any time. Please note that The 1865 does not control the practices of its Sellers and it is their responsibility to follow all applicable data protection laws.

"Non-Personal Data" as used in this Privacy Policy is any information that does not relate to a person and/or cannot be used to identify a person. When you interact with the Services, we may collect Non-Personal Data. The limitations and requirements in this Privacy Policy on our collection, use, disclosure, transfer and storage/retention of Personal Data do not apply to Non-Personal Data.

By using any of The 1865’s services, or by dealing with a Seller using The 1865’s services, you are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy and, as applicable, the The 1865 Terms and Conditions for Sellers or Customers.
Talking Heads (Southampton) Limited is a company incorporated in England and Wales under company number 07936882. Our address is 76 Bellemoor Road, Southampton, SO15 7QU.

3.2 Access, Use and Provision of Services

If you provide Personal Data in order to obtain access to or use of the Services or any functionality thereof, we will use your Personal Data to provide you with access to or use of the Services or functionality and to analyse your use of such Services or functionality.

3.3 Internal Business Purposes.

We may use your Personal Data for internal business purposes, including without limitation, to help us improve the content and functionality of the Services, to better understand our Users, to improve the Services, to protect against, identify or address wrongdoing, to enforce our Terms of Service, to manage your account and provide you with customer service, and to generally manage the Services and our business.

3.4 Marketing Communications.

You will only receive marketing emails from The 1865 if you have opted in to receive them. We will make sure it is clear when you can make these choices, for example, we have boxes you need to select if you want to receive marketing at checkout. You will always be able to unsubscribe from any marketing emails from The 1865.

The 1865 (or Sellers where applicable) may email you with reminders or warnings relating to your account or purchases, most commonly for the purposes of providing customer support.

If you are a Seller using The 1865’s services, we do not use the Personal Data we collect from you or your customers to independently contact or market to your customers. However, The 1865 may contact or market to your customers if we obtain their information from another source, such as from the customers themselves. We may contact you, as a Seller, to inform you about our Services .

You can opt out at anytime by clicking “unsubscribe” in the email or by contacting

The 1865 provides a mailing list signup widget and sign up option in the site's footer and at checkout for Sellers’ Customers to join the Seller’s mailing list. For example, if you are signing up to a mailing list for a band, it will state clearly who that band is. If you sign up for the band’s mailing list, that data will be passed to the band and it is then their responsibility to ensure they follow all data processing regulations. The 1865 will not contact you for marketing purposes (unless you also join our mailing list).

3.5 Other Purposes.

If we intend to use any Personal Data in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such anticipated use prior to or at the time the Personal Data is collected or we will obtain your consent subsequent to such collection but prior to such use.

3.6 Aggregated Personal Data.

In an ongoing effort to understand and serve our Users better, we often conduct research on our customer demographics, interests and behaviour based on Personal Data and other information that we have collected. This research is typically conducted on an aggregate basis only that does not identify you. Once Personal Data is in an aggregated form, for purposes of this Privacy Policy, it becomes Non-Personal Data.

4. How We Disclose And Transfer Your Personal Data.

4.1 No Sale.

We are not in the business of selling your Personal Data. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. Therefore, we will not sell your Personal Data to third parties, including third party advertisers. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may disclose, transfer or share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below.

4.2 Business Transfers.

As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganisation, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.

These companies include fulfilment providers, payment processors, online chat and email providers, money transfer services, database service providers, backup and disaster recovery service providers and others. When we engage another company to perform such functions, we may provide them with information, including Personal Data, in connection with their performance of such functions.

4.5 Sellers.

When transacting on The 1865, you are buying from a Seller that is typically an artist, one of their partners, or a music venue. The Seller is always displayed at checkout. Your Personal Information is shared with the Seller so that they can run their business, for example to fulfil your order, track sales activity, improve product and service offerings, plan tours and identify their top customers or customers with a certain purchase history. If you have bought a ticket from a Seller, they will likely share your details with the venue and/or promoter for the show, for example so that they can verify your ticket on the door list. If you have bought a physical item from a Seller, they will likely share your details with a fulfilment company, for example for sending you your order. If you would not like your data to be shared in this way please contact but please bear in mind it will likely impact your ability to use what you have purchased (for example, to attend the event in question if your details are not on the door list). If you have signed up to the Seller’s mailing list, they can contact you with news and announcements, for example announcing a new tour or album release, and they may analyse your sales history to target that effectively. Our Terms and Conditions provide that Sellers using our Services must comply with applicable laws when they use our Services. We are not responsible for the actions of Sellers with respect to your Personal Data.

Similarly, if you are a member of a Seller's organisation within The 1865, your Personal Data will be available to the Seller and shared with third parties granted permission by the Seller to view all members of the Seller's organisation.

We may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law in order to (for example) respond to a subpoena or request from law enforcement, a court or a government agency (including in response to public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements), or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation, (b) protect or defend our rights, interests or property or that of third parties, (c) prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the Services, (d) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of Users of the Services or the public, or (e) protect against legal liability.
