Privacy Policy


Here at The Garage we love welcoming you for some of the biggest gigs, club nights and festivals that London has to offer. Obviously, we don’t want you to miss out, so we’d like to keep in touch by dropping fresh updates straight in your inbox to save you some time and effort checking up for yourself!

What info we collect
Why we collect it
How long we keep it
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 8 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 A key bit of info we need to send out any information for a gig to your home address. We’ll keep this for no longer than 8 years from your last purchase date.

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

Date of birth This is to help us get a better understanding of our audience and to send you information about the gigs we think you’ll like.

By signing up to our mailing list or buying a ticket you’re confirming that you are over 13. If this is not the case, please email to have your details removed. We also use your D.O.B to make sure we’re not sending you any promotions related to alcohol if you’re under 18.

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 8 years, but you can update your preferences at any time by getting in contact here with your name, email address and changes in preference.
ID Scanners Sometimes at Oslo 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.

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 the will form part of legal proceedings.
