Why do we use an ID Scanner upon entry?

The 2003 Licensing Act covers four main principles, one of which is the protection of children. Halo has a legal obligation to ensure that we do not serve alcohol to anyone under the age of 18 years. Additionally, we are required by law to prevent crime and disorder, prevent public nuisance and have an obligation to public safety. To assist us in complying with these legal obligations, we require guests to produce photographic ID which is as a condition on our licence imposed by Bournemouth and Poole Council, we must process through our SCAN NET system.

We use the photographic ID to verify our guest’s identity and age, and we process the ID on our SCAN NET system to search for any alerts created by our venue, or others which use the SCAN NET system and pubwatch. Alerts inform us of those who have been banned from licensed premises, or under the pub watch scheme. For obvious reasons, we are not able to obtain this information and verify a person’s identification without photographic ID. 

Our scanners only take relevant information from the documents presented on the SCAN NET system.

The SCAN NET system maintains a log of those who visited our premises, which is usually held for 3 years but reviewed after 6 months of non-activity. Alerts created by our venue may be held for longer, depending on the severity of the situation and the reason for the alert. 

If a person does not wish to present their ID to our staff for scanning, they may be refused entry. The club have the right to refuse entry to anyone who does not show a valid ID upon arrival.  

We do not share your data with third parties beyond the SCAN NET database, however alerts may be shared with other SCAN NET venues when they scan your ID at their premises. 

What legal basis do we have for using your information?

For anyone using our services or premises, our processing is necessary for our legitimate interests in that we need the information in order to be able to ensure their safety and security and to contact such persons for that purpose or to provide our services to them (e.g., checking your requirements for using our services or premises).

If you notify us of any health or disability requirements, then this may involve the processing of more detailed personal data including sensitive data such as health information that you or others provide about you. In that case we always ask for your consent before undertaking such processing. An injury wavier is normally provided to allow customers to consent to their person injuries before entering the venue.

For customers of Halo Bournemouth, we may also rely on our processing being necessary to perform a contract for you, for example in contacting you.

What happens if you do not provide us with the information we request or ask that we stop processing your information?

If you do not provide the personal data necessary, or withdraw your consent for the processing of your personal data, we may not be able to permit entry onto our premises or provide you with our services.

Do we make automated decisions concerning you?

No, we do not carry out automated decision making or automated profiling.
