We will keep your information for as long as it is reasonably necessary and to deal with claims. It will depend on factors such as whether you’ve got an account with us, have interacted with recent offers or have attended our recent events. We will also retain your information as necessary to comply with legal, accounting or reporting requirements.


We will also retain a copy of your contact details if you object or opt-out of receiving direct marketing communications from us. We will add your details to our suppression list to ensure you do not receive any future marketing communications from us. Also, we will not delete personal data if relevant to an investigation or a dispute. It will continue to be stored until those issues are fully resolved.


6. Direct marketing

If signing up to our database we may email you about upcoming events at our venues. You can opt-out of receiving direct marketing from us at any time.

7. Legal issues

In some cases, we need to collect or retain personal information for legal reasons


Some of the personal information we request is required to provide our services and if it is not provided, we may not be able to provide the relevant products and services to you or provide information you have requested from us. If the personal information is needed to participate in an activity on our website, you may not be able to do so if you do not provide that personal information to us.


In other cases, for example, when we request your personal data to send you marketing and promotional communications to inform you about future events/offers, the lack of such information will mean it is impossible to send you these communications, but it will not have any consequence to the primary purpose of the data collection (to provide the services).


Your personal information may also be processed if it is necessary on reasonable request by a law enforcement or regulatory authority, body or agency, or in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding suspected illegal activities or fraud, to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements, to protect the rights, property or safety of group companies, customers, clients and others or in the defence of legal claims.

We will not delete personal information if relevant to an investigation or a dispute or until applicable law allows for it to be deleted. It will continue to be stored until those issues are fully resolved and it can be lawfully deleted.


Any personal information you supply to us through our website/platform must be complete and accurate. You also agree to allow us to contact you to verify your personal information if we need to.
