About Scantek Bans
Q: Can Scantek remove or alter the ban placed on me?
No. Scantek is not authorised to change the ban status, details or any other information relating to the ban. Please get in touch with the venue that placed the ban to address your concerns.
Q: If I am banned from one venue, does that mean I'm banned from all venues?
Your banned status will be visible to other Scantek ID scanners venues. This does not mean you will be automatically banned, but the information may be used to decide whether to grant you access.
Q: Can Scantek investigate a ban against me?
No. Scantek does not conduct investigations or mediate disputes between parties. Please get in touch with the venue that placed the ban to address your concerns.
Q: The Venue that banned me has closed down. Can you unban me?
No. Scantek is not responsible for any existing bans, even if the venue has closed down. Please contact the venue that placed the ban to address your concerns, as they may still be checking social media and email.
Q: Why did Scantek ban me?
Scantek provides the technology and hardware to Venues or Issuing Authorities to place bans on patrons.
