How we collect your Data

1 – When you use our website

We use data about our website visitors and their in-person visits to learn more about our customers. We do this so we can target our marketing and direct advertising. See the profiling section of this notice and the cookie policy of the website you are visiting for more details.

2 – When we need to verify your age

Market House is required by law to ensure we do not sell/serve alcohol to anyone under the age of 18 so we carry out age checks when appropriate. We may log some age verification checks anonymously to check and prove that they are being carried out in accordance with the licensing rules that apply to Market House.

The Challenge 21 and Challenge 25 schemes seek to discourage underage drinking by encouraging hospitality businesses to ask anyone who may be lucky enough to look like they are under 21 (or 25) for proof of their age before they are served. If you’re one of the lucky ones, please don’t be offended, it’s a compliment!. A photo-card driving licence, passport or military ID are valid proof of age for both schemes: if you don’t have these documents, please check the relevant Challenge scheme website to see what else we can accept.

To comply with Covid-19 regulations. NHS Test and Trace or NHS Scotland Test and Protect may request information from us about our visitors, we will share the information they require, to help them to identify people who are at a higher risk of infection.

Occasionally, a licensing authority may require the licensed premises in their area to verify or record information about their visitors, in particular information about their identity. If we are required to carry out such activities during your visit, further information will be provided at the Market House venue.
