The Ivy House has been trading as London's first co-operatively owned pub and performance space for nearly five years. In that time we have had many requests for us to reopen our share issue to new members. From 19th March 2018 you can apply to become a member of the Ivy House Community Pub by buying community shares in the pub. All the information on this web page can also be downloaded in .pdf format here.
Before buying shares, please read our FAQs below to ensure you understand the nature of the community share offer (click the icon to expand). The section on financial details, also below, has detailed information about the financial status of the pub business, including links to the last three years' accounts. You can read about our data protection policy in the Privacy Notice below.
You can buy shares by cheque (application form accessible via this link), or by balance transfer using your bank's online banking facility. To do this, please fill in the form below, which will give you access to our bank details and Order Number to use when transferring funds. You can read the Rules of the Society here.
Ivy House Community Pub Limited (Company No. IP031957) ("Ivy House", "we") is committed to safeguarding your privacy. At all times we aim to respect any personal information you share with us, or that we receive from other organisations, and keep it safe. This Privacy Notice ("Notice") sets out our data collection and processing practices and your options regarding the ways in which your personal information is used, when you provide your personal information for the purpose of applying to purchase shares in Ivy House.
This Notice contains important information about your personal rights to privacy. Please read it carefully to understand how we use your personal information. We may update this Notice from time to time and will notify you accordingly.
The provision of your personal information to us is voluntary. However, without providing us with the personal information requested in this application form, we will be unable to process your shareholder application.
For the purposes of this application and your continued status as a shareholder, we collect and store the following types of personal information:
For the purposes of this application, we do not process any sensitive personal information.
For the purposes of this application, your personal information will be used for the following purposes:
We endeavour to ensure that there are appropriate and proportionate technical and organisational measures to prevent the loss, destruction, misuse, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of or access to your personal information.
In particular, your personal information will only be accessible by appropriately trained staff and will be stored within a computerised database protected by anti-virus software and password access.
Apart from this, the personal information we collect for the purposes of your application will not be disclosed to any third party, unless we are required to do so due to any legal or regulatory obligation.
In general, the personal information that we collect from you will be stored at a destination within the UK or European Economic Area. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of personal information transmitted via the internet.
The General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) requires us to rely on one or more lawful grounds to process your personal information. For the purposes of this application, we consider the grounds listed below to be relevant:
(1) Where necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request prior to entering a contract.
So that we can provide you with the allotted shares in Ivy House in return for the share purchase price.
(2) Where necessary so that we can comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject.
For example, for anti-money laundering, accounting or auditing purposes (for example our annual return to the FCA), FCA inspections or so that we can register you on our internal register.
(3) Where there is a legitimate interest in us doing so.
The GDPR allows us to collect and process personal information if it is reasonably necessary to achieve our legitimate interests (as long as that processing is fair and balanced and does not unduly impact your rights).
In general, “legitimate interests” mean the interests of running Ivy House as a community benefit society. Where we process your personal information to achieve such legitimate interests, we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative), and your rights under applicable data protection/privacy laws. We will not use your personal information for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you, for example where use would be excessively intrusive (unless, for instance, we are otherwise required or permitted to by applicable law).
Once we have collected and as long as we continue to process your personal information, you have the following rights:
To exercise any of these rights, please send a description of the personal information in question using the contact details in section 9 below. Where we consider that the information you provide does not enable us to identify you or the personal information in question, we reserve the right to ask for (i) personal identification or (ii) further information.
Please note that you may only use/benefit from some of these rights in limited circumstances. For more information, we suggest that you consult guidance from the Information Commissioner’s Office ("ICO") – - or please contact us using the details in section 9 below.

For further information on how to exercise this right, please see the guidance at https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/personal-information. The contact details for the ICO can be found here.
In general, unless still required in connection with the purpose(s) for which it was collected and/or is processed (i.e. to allow you to be a shareholder in the Ivy House or for associated record-keeping obligations), we remove your personal information from our records six years after the date it was collected. However, if before that date (i) your personal information is no longer required in connection with such purpose(s), (ii) we are no longer lawfully entitled to process it or (iii) you validly exercise your right of erasure, we will remove it from our records at the relevant time.
We keep this Notice under regular review and may update it from time to time. Where necessary we will notify you of changes to the Notice by email. The Notice was last updated on Feb 14 2018.
