THE DATA WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU

Personal data, or personal information, means any information relating to an identifiable individual. It does not include any data or information which relates to a person that cannot be identified or where the person’s identity has been removed (i.e. anonymous data).

As a customer at our venues or visitor to our site, we may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you, which we have grouped together as follows:

  • Identity data:  Data which identifies you, including your name and date of birth

  • Contact data: Your contact details, such as your address, telephone number and email address

  • Financial data: Data we collect if you purchase tickets from us, such as your bank account and payment card details

  • Transaction data: Details about any purchases you have made from us

  • Marketing data: Data which we capture when you sign up to our App, or instore on an ipad, including your preferences regarding receiving marketing communications from us

  • Usage data:  Information about how you use our site and our products and services including how you navigate our site and if you encounter any problems

  • Technical data: Electronic information which is automatically logged/stored by processing equipment, including internet protocol (IP) address, your login data, browser type and version, time zone setting and location, browser plug-in types and versions, operating system and platform and other technology on the devices you use to access our site

  • Social media data: Data we have access to through a social media platform when you connect with us or like or follow our social media accounts, including your social media handle, photograph, date of birth, location, occupation, interests and other information and content you make available via your social media accounts

  • CCTV data:  Information obtained through CCTV.

We may also collect, use and share “aggregated data” such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated data may be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage
of users accessing a specific feature on our site. However, if we combine or connect aggregated data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We do not ordinarily collect or process special categories of personal data about you as a customer at our venue or visitor to our site (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, political opinions, information about your health and genetic and biometric data), except if you have an accident or are injured at one of our venues. In the unlikely event this happens, we will need to keep a record of your injury for the purpose of ongoing compliance with health and safety legislation and for the purpose of any resulting legal claims. We will minimise the special category data we collect so far as possible and we will make you aware when we collect this type of data.

We do not collect any information about criminal convictions and offences (criminal data).

CHANGE OF PURPOSE

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we wish to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

We may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.

 

IF YOU FAIL TO PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA

Where we need to collect personal data from you in order to comply with our legal obligations or to perform a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the relevant contract (for example, to send you tickets or process your payment). In this case, we may have to cancel the relevant contract.

 

HOW WE PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. Unfortunately, however, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

In addition, the personal information you provide to us is only available to authorised personnel of The Clubhouse Stoke who need access to the information in order to fulfil their duties. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they shall be subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

Once we no longer require your personal information, we will take reasonable steps to destroy it in a secure manner.

 

HOW LONG WE HOLD YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR

We will only hold your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. Our retention periods take into account legal and regulatory requirements and are subject to change. If you have any questions in this regard, please contact us using the contact details set out in this Privacy Policy.

Where you have provided consent for us to re-post an image from your social media account, we will keep the re-posted image on our internal database for 30 days after it was re-posted on our social media account. The re-posted image will remain accessible through our social media account indefinitely (or in line with the policy of the relevant social media platform), unless you instruct us or the social media platform to delete it.

We will retain any special category personal data collected in connection with an accident or injury suffered at one of our venues (as described above) for a period of three years for the purposes of dealing with any resulting legal claims and for the purposes of complying with our statutory reporting obligations (or such longer period as may be required by law).

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) in order to develop our business methods and strategy or for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

We shall not have any liability whatsoever to you for the deletion of personal data in accordance with our data retention policy.

 

SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES

 

We require third parties to respect the security of your data, keep it confidential, and to treat it in accordance with the law.

We may share your personal data with the following third parties in order to perform a contract with you, comply with a legal obligation or in our legitimate interests of conducting our business:

  • Third parties who provide services to us, including our ticketing provider (currently Resova Ltd), our Wi-Fi provider, our IT providers and marketing and advertising providers (currently MailChimp).

  • If we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order
    to enforce any agreements, or to protect the rights, property or safety of our business, our customers or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction, with HM Revenue & Customs, the police, regulators and other authorities and public bodies where we are required to do so by law.

  • Professional advisers, including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance and accountancy services.

We require all our data processors to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law.

In some instances where we share data with third parties, such as HMRC, those third parties will also be controllers of your data.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

The personal data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

  • Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the EEA and the US. For further details, see European Commission: EU-US Privacy Shield.
