CCTV, IDScan and other surveillance technologies


Licenced premises have a responsibility to uphold four objectives from the Licensing Act 2003:

  • Public Safety
  • Prevention of Public Nuisance
  • Prevention of Crime and Disorder
  • Protection of Children from Harm

In order to uphold these objectives, in particular; the prevention of crime and disorder and the protection of children from harm we use the IDScan system in some of our venues.

Revolution Bars and Revolucion De Cuba are registered with the Information Commissioner’s office for use of this system, and we take data protection and privacy considerations seriously.

Considerable attention is paid to seeking to ensure that data captured is held securely.

IDScan retains a copy of customer identity documents. Scanning is entirely voluntary, however the management reserve the right to refuse entry if ID is not volunteered.

Access to stored data is restricted to management level. Data viewed by door supervisors extends merely to the photograph and DOB.

Occasionally we may share this data with Police, if requested following an incident in the venue, to assist in crime and disorder investigation or prosecution. An individual’s data may also be shared with Scannet, in conjunction with Pubwatch, if that individual is placed on a Barred List.

Our systems are set to automatically purge data that is over 3 years old which is in line with the statute of limitations for civil claims. Copies of ID documents will be retained for a maximum 3 years with the exception of any individual who is on the Barred List, where their details will be retained for as long as they remain on that list.

Should you require that we purge you’re information, and given that the information need not reasonably be kept for any of the purposes above, please email


In the interests of Public Safety, and the prevention of Crime and Disorder Revolution Bars Group PLC uses CCTV in all of its venues. We may, in some of our premises use body cameras for the same purpose and the use one or both may be a condition on the premises licence. Where we use CCTV, this will be clearly signposted at the entrance to the premises.

Video footage will be retained for a minimum of 31 days and will only be accessed by the following personnel;

  • Site management
  • The Risk and Compliance Team
  • Local law enforcement officers

Video copies of specific incidents may be retained and made available to local law enforcement officers and/or legal representatives where the footage is part of an accident investigation, official investigation or legal case.

Enquiries regarding CCTV footage should be sent to

How we keep you updated on our products and services

We will send you relevant offers and news about our products and services in a number of ways including by email, SMS, or phone but only if you have previously consented to receive these marketing communications. You may unsubscribe or opt-out at any time by using the ‘unsubscribe link’ included in all emails or by contacting us via the address stated in part 1.

How long we keep your information for

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Wherever possible we do not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

Some of our external third parties are based outside the European Economic Area (EEA) so their processing of your personal data may sometimes involve a transfer of data outside the EEA.
