At Tape London we are committed to protecting your personal data.
For the purposes of the applicable Data Protection legislation, we are a data controller in respect of the personal data we collect when you use the Website, become a Member, or purchase merchandise through the Website.
What personal data do we collect from you?
Contacting us: If you wish to contact us through the Website, we ask you to supply essential contact details (your name, e-mail address, and (where applicable) the company you represent and your job title), which we need in order to identify you through the Website.
Registering on the Website: If you register on the Website to receive our newsletter, to enter any competitions or special promotions, or apply to be a member of the Club, we will collect your name, postal address, e-mail address, social media tags, phone number, age and gender, username and password. You may also be asked to provide other details such as your interests, likes and preferencesparticularly in relation to music and musical artists. We need this information to perform the contract we have with you, and to tailor the Club’s activities and events to members’ profiles.
Merchandise: If you wish to order any of our Tape merchandise through the Website (or perhaps in due course apply for tickets for an event at the Club), or the entity you represent does so, we will collect further personal data from you (your name, postal address, and e-mail address and/or phone number) which we need to fulfil the order and keep in contact with you about it. If you make a payment through the Website’s payment gateway for merchandise, your credit or debit card number will be collected and used to make the payment, but we do not store such information.
Membership ID: If you apply to become a member and you are accepted you will be asked to provide identification documentation (passport or photo driving licence) together with the names and email addresses of your nominees which will be checked through identification scanning equipment and saved on our system. This will enable access to the Club without the need to show ID subsequently.
Fingerprint ID: In addition, when you enter the Club for the first time, you will be asked for identification documentation which will be scanned. You will also be asked whether you are willing to give a fingerprint. The purpose of this is to allow you to enter the Club on future occasions by not having to provide ID but only your fingerprint.
You will be asked to sign an express consent form authorising us to hold this identification information. If so, this information will be held unless and until you instruct us you not to do so.
Filming and photos: The Website and social media pages relating to the Club contain photos of artists who have performed at the Club as well as members of the public who have been in the Club or attended certain gigs or events. When you enter the Club you may be filmed or have your photo taken. This will be used for social media posts and to have recent photos of events included on the website. On entering the Club you will be asked to sign an acknowledgement and consent that will be stored unless and until you withdraw your consent.
