Privacy Policy - Thekla Bristol

Privacy Policy

At Thekla we love welcoming you aboard for some of the best gigs, club nights and festivals that Bristol has to offer. Obviously, we don’t want you to miss out on anything so we like to keep in touch by dropping super exciting updates straight in your inbox to save you the work of having to keep an eye out yourself. In order to do this, Thekla and other Daybrook House Promotions Limited associate companies (hereafter referred to as ‘Thekla’, ‘we’, ‘our’ or ‘us’) collect bits of information from you and we do this in a variety of ways to make sure you only hear about things that you’re interested in. This privacy policy will explain the types of information we collect and what this information will be used for. If you are unsure about anything in this policy, would like any point explaining further or are just wondering where the Banksy disappeared to, you can get in touch on

Just in case you’re not aware, our associate companies are:

Below we have outlined the ways in which we collect your information:


What information we collect Why How long do we keep this for?
Your Name (First & Last) We’re all friends here and it’s important to us that we address you like a friend so you can have a pleasant and personal experience with us, we can’t do that without your name. We’ll keep this for up to 6 years after your last interaction with us. That interaction could be by booking a ticket, signing up to our mailing list or sending us an email.
Address As we mentioned above, we’ve got lots of great venues and festivals outside the South West and we promote shows all over the country so we use your postcode to keep you up to date on exciting things we may be working on near you (but only if you’ve asked us to let you know). To make your ticket buying experience easier, we’ll save your address on your account if you’ve booked tickets with us before. We’ll keep this for no longer than 6 years, at which point we’ll ask you to update your information and let us know you’re still happy for us to use this.

If you’ve given us your address for a competition, we’ll use this to send you your prize and then delete the info.

IP Address & Device type. Like most companies we have Cookies installed on our website so that we can track visitors (this is just a small piece of code inserted into a website’s HTML). We use Cookies to target adverts at people online who have visited our website. For more information on this, you can see our Cookies policy here. We also can see information such as the device you use to access our website, and this helps to inform us on how to provide the best customer experience for you.

We’ll keep this for up to 6 years after your last interaction with us. That interaction could be by booking a ticket, signing up to our mailing list or sending us an email.
Mobile number To send you reminders about gigs that are about to go on sale (we’ll only do this if you have requested this information) or to send you information you need to know about the show. Please note we have to pass your mobile number on to an external company who send out text messages on our behalf. On sale and waiting list reminders sent via text are used one-time only unless you have opted in to receive further communication from us.
Date of birth We’re proud to entertain people of all ages on the boat and we keep hold of your Date Of Birth to help us get a better understanding of our audience and to send you information about the events we think you’ll like. As your D.O.B stays the same we’ll hold this information for as long as you’re opted in to our mailing lists (we’ll check in with you regularly to see that you still want to be on our database).
Musical interests The reason you’re here in the first place! This information is important so that we can keep you up to date on the events that matter most to you. We realise people’s interests change regularly, we’ll keep this information on file for 6 years, but you can update your preferences at any time by getting in contact via email on with your name, email address and changes in preference.
Id Scanners Sometimes at Rock City you’ll notice that we occasionally scan your ID. This is done to prevent crime and disorder and for the protection of children from harm. We sometimes also use this data to send you free tickets on your birthday and other big events like Christmas and New Year’s Eve. We store this data for no longer than 5 years years but if you would like us to remove you from the system we can at your request. Please email to request this.
CCTV Images and audio recordings To assist in keeping members of the public, visitors, employees and contractors safe whilst on our premises.

To help reduce crime and disorder on the boat.

To improve crime detection and provide evidence in legal claims or prosecutions

DHP Family has several different CCTV systems in it premises which all have a recording function which records over existing data when the storage is full. These systems are set up to record data for a minimum of 31 days in normal circumstances. Data on the CCTV systems will be deleted after 3 months if not already over written by the normal function of the CCTV system. Copies may be made of CCTV recordings and kept for 3 years when part of legal proceedings or where we have reasonable grounds to expect they will form part of legal proceedings.
Accident Records We have a legal duty to record accidents and accident records form part of the information gathered by DHP Family.

We use accident anonymised data to monitor safety performance within DHP Family operations.

We keep these records for 6 years.

We will remove personal information from records after 6 years. We will use anonymised data indefinitely or until it is no longer used in monitoring safety to the company.

Purchase history So we can send you the shows and events we think you’ll be most interested in, to make sure you don’t miss out on that band or DJ you love before they play a huge venue. We’ll keep this for as long as you’re on our database, you can choose to unsubscribe at any point.
