Who we are

The Hive London runs membership schemes for activities on site such as Barnet FC, London Bees and a gym.  The Hive London also sells tickets to Barnet FC and London Bees football matches, runs a club shop on site as well as on-line, and takes bookings for pitch and function room hire.  For the purposes of data protection regulations we are a ‘data controller’ (i.e. we decide what personal data to collect about our customers and what we will do with your personal data and we have an obligation to protect it).

Information we collect

When you place an order we will ask you for your name, address, email and telephone number which we store. We also ask for your credit/debit card details which goes to our secure payment processing provider SagePay whose privacy statement is here.

We store your IP address and use cookies.  Cookies are small text files which are transferred from our website.  They are widely used in order to help websites work more efficiently (e.g. by helping us identify you and remember details that you do not have to re-input or for us to tailor our website to your preferences) as well as provide general (not individual specific) website usage information.  Most web browsers allow some control to restrict/block cookies, however this may affect your ability to use our website.

How we use the information we collect

We will only use your personal information to administer your account and to provide the products and services you have requested from us.  Under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) the lawful bases we have for processing your data for this purpose is called contract (this is one of 6 lawful bases under GDPR).

However, from time to time we would like to contact you with details of events, discounts and promotions but we will only do this according to the consent boxes you tick when you provide us your personal data (consent is one of the 6 lawful bases for processing personal data under GDPR) .  Such promotions could be sent by post, email, telephone, text message or automated call.

We will ask for your consent on the first occasion that you provide any relevant contact information (e.g. on purchase of goods or a match ticket, when completing a membership form, signing up to a newsletter, registering for a trial or soccer school, making a pitch / room booking, entering a competition etc). If you opt in to receive such marketing from us, you can opt out at any time (see ‘What rights do you have?’ below for further information).

We’ll never share your details with other organisations without your permission, unless we’re required to by law.
