At Local Global Ltd (referred to as “we”, “us”, “our”) we take privacy seriously and we are committed to protecting it.
This policy explains when and why we collect personal information about individuals, how this information is used, the conditions under which it may be disclosed to others and how it is kept secure. It relates to the Local Global mobile application software (“App”) and the services accessible through the App once you have downloaded a copy of the App onto your mobile telephone or handheld device (“Device”).
Local Global Ltd (a company registered in England and Wales with company number 10791248) is the data controller in relation to the processing activities described below. This means that we decide why and how your personal information is processed.
This policy may change from time to time so please check this page occasionally to ensure that you’re happy with any changes.
When you use the App, our products or services, the categories of information that we may collect about you are as follows:

Personal information we collect about you:
Personal information we may receive from other sources: We may obtain certain personal information about you from sources outside of our business including our third party partners which may include the following: social media providers (for example Instagram, Facebook and Twitter); and mobile service providers. The personal information received is as described in the paragraphs above.
The purposes for which we use your information and the legal basis under data protection laws on which we rely to do this are explained below.
Where you have provided CONSENT
We may use and process your personal information where you have consented for us to do so for the following purposes:
You may withdraw your consent for us to use your information in any of these ways at any time. Please see Withdrawing your consent for further details.
Where it is required to complete a CONTRACT
Where there is a LEGITIMATE INTEREST
We may use and process your personal information where it is necessary for us to pursue our legitimate interests as a business, or that of a third party, for the following purposes:
Where there is a LEGAL REQUIREMENT
We will use your personal information to comply with our legal obligations: (i) to assist any public authority or criminal investigation body; (ii) to identify you when you contact us; and/or (iii) to verify the accuracy of data we hold about you.
Your information may be converted into statistical or aggregated data in such a way as to ensure that you are not identified or identifiable from it. Aggregated data cannot be linked back to you as a natural person. We may use this data for analytical and research purposes.
Our suppliers and service providers: We may disclose your information to our third party Venues, service providers, agents, subcontractors and other organisations for the purposes of providing services to us or directly to you on our behalf. Such third parties may include: Venues, cloud service providers (such as hosting and email management), advertising agencies and administrative services.
When we use third party service providers, we only disclose to them any personal information that is necessary for them to provide their service and we have a contract in place that requires them to keep your information secure and not to use it other than in accordance with our specific instructions.
Third parties who provide products and services: We may work closely with various third parties to bring you a range of products and services that are complementary to those that we provide. In particular, we may offer experience packages, events or parties in respect of Venues or other establishments. When you enquire about or purchase one or more of these products or services through us, the relevant third party may use your details to provide you with information and carry out their obligations arising from any contracts you have entered into with them.
Credit/debit card payment processors: When you purchase any products or services through the App, your credit/debit card payment is processed by a third party payment processor, who specialises in the secure online capture and processing of credit/debit card transactions. If you have any questions regarding secure transactions, please contact us using the details at the end of this policy.
Customer satisfaction surveys: As customer satisfaction is important to us, we may ask a third party research company to contact you for the sole purpose of gathering general information and specific information relating to us and our products and services.
Other ways we may share your personal information: We may transfer your personal information to a third party as part of a sale of some or all of our business and assets to any third party or as part of any business restructuring or reorganisation. We may also transfer your personal information if we’re under a duty to disclose or share it in order to comply with any legal obligation, to detect or report a crime, to enforce or apply the terms of our contracts or to protect the rights, property or safety of our visitors and customers. We will always take steps with the aim of ensuring that your privacy rights continue to be protected.
All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers which are located within the European Economic Area (EEA), and/or the United Kingdom (if at any point the United Kingdom ceases to be within the EEA).
If at any time we transfer your personal information to, or store it in, countries located outside of the EEA (for example, if our hosting services provider changes) we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place for that transfer and storage as required by applicable law. This is because some countries outside of the EEA do not have adequate data protection laws equivalent to those in the EEA.
If we collect your personal information, the length of time we retain it is determined by a number of factors including the purpose for which we use that information and our obligations under other laws. We do not retain personal information in an identifiable format for longer than is necessary.
We may need your personal information to establish, bring or defend legal claims. For this purpose, we will always retain your personal information for 7 years after the date it is no longer needed by us for any of the purposes listed under How we use your personal information above. The only exceptions to this are where:
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to the App and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your personal information, we put in place reasonable and appropriate controls to ensure that it remains secure against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, or unauthorised access.
Where we collect any sensitive personal information about your ethnic background, sex life, political opinions, religion, trade union membership of criminal record, we will apply additional security controls to protect that data.
Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access an account, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
The App may contain links to other websites run by other organisations. This policy does not apply to those other websites‚ so we encourage you to read their privacy statements. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites even if you access them using links that we provide. In addition, if you linked to our website from a third party website, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners and operators of that third party website and recommend that you check the policy of that third party website.
