  1. Personal Data we collect about you

Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data).  

We collect personal data about you in a variety of ways.  Sometimes we collect the personal data directly from you and at times we may receive personal data about you from other sources and third parties.  We also collect personal data automatically when you interact with our website. 

We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of personal data about you which we have grouped together as follows:

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. Aggregated Data could be derived from your personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific website feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

We may collect minimal Special Category of Personal Data about you when you make a reservation with a particular restaurant and this information will be limited to (i) any allergy or dietary requirements you might have, and (ii) any access or seating requirements you might have (like disabled access or ramp access requirements).  We do not knowingly collect any additional special category data.

Data from external sources.  We may receive personal data about you from various third parties, like information to enhance or supplement existing user information or for statistical purposes and analytics.  Additionally, we will receive Transaction Data from providers of technical and payment services we engage based inside the UK.

Children’s Data

This website and the services are not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect personal information about children under 13 years old.  If you are aware of anyone under the age of 13 using the website or otherwise providing us with personal data, please contact us and we will take required steps to either delete such information or obtain appropriate approval from a parent or guardian. 

  1. How we use your personal data

We will not collect and use your personal data without letting you know.  Our use of your data will be based on one of the following circumstances:

Principles of processing

We will not process personal data in a way that is incompatible with the purposes for which it has been collected or subsequently authorised by you.  We also will not collect any personal data that is not needed for the mentioned purposes. For any new purpose of processing we will ask your approval before we begin that processing. 

We will not sell or rent your personal data and will get your consent before giving your personal data to any third party for direct marketing communications.

We have set out below, in a table format, a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the legal bases we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate.

We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising. 

Promotional offers from us 

We may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage and Profile Data to form a view on what we think you may want or need, or what may be of interest to you. This is how we decide which services and offers may be relevant for you (we call this marketing). 

You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information from us or requested services from us and you have not opted out of receiving that marketing.

Third-party marketing 

We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any third party for marketing purposes.  We may provide you with details of any offers or discounts that we have negotiated with third parties but this will be optional for you to use, and we will not share any personal data with third parties for this purpose. 

Opting out

You can ask us or third parties to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by contacting us at any time. 

Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of use of a service or other transactions.

  1. Disclosures of your personal data

We may share your personal data with the parties set out below for the purposes set out in the table above.

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

Where we share your data with relevant restaurants, the restaurant shall be a controller of your data in line with their own privacy policy. 

Aggregated Data.  We may aggregate, anonymize or de-identify your personal data so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify you. Such data is no longer personal data but we will still take care of it. This is done for our legitimate interest as well as the wider societal interest. .

  1. International transfers

We do not transfer your personal data outside the UK or the EEA.  If there was any international transfers, we would ensure that a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by having appropriate safeguards in place prior to any international transfer taking place. 

  1. Data security

We have put in place reasonable and appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We will limit access to your personal data to those 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. 

  1. Data retention

How long will you use my personal data for?

We will only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We may retain your personal data for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there is a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

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, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

Where we have anonymised your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you. 

  1. Your legal rights

We are committed to providing you with privacy rights in relation to your personal data.  Details of the rights you have are set out below.  If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.

No fee usually required

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Time limit to respond

We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it could take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
