We will have a lawful basis for processing your information: if we need to process your information in order to provide you with the service you have requested or to enter into a contract; we have your consent; we have a justifiable reason for processing your data; or we are under a legal obligation to do so.

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit and use the Platform. Cookies are then sent back to the originating URL on each subsequent visit, or to another URL that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu . For a video about cookies visit www.google.co.uk/goodtoknow/data-on-the-web/cookies.
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improve the user experience.
They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
You may set and/or adjust your (browser) settings and preferences regarding cookies at any time, and you may disable cookies. Disabling them may prevent you from using certain parts/functionalities of the Controller’s web application.
Restaurant may collect anonymous information, including for statistical or research purposes.
Restaurant uses the following categories on Platform:
Category 1 — Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around Platform and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies services like order list and billing cannot be provided.
Category 2 — Performance Cookies
These cookies collect information about how you use the Platform — for instance, which pages you go to most, and if they get error messages from web pages and/or the web application. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how the Restaurant’s website(s) and/or the application works.
As 3rd party cookies in this category we use Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. The reports provided by Google Analytics help us understand website traffic and webpage usage. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Category 3 — Functionality Cookies
These cookies allow the Platform to remember choices you make while browsing and/or using the application (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features.
These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, language and other parts of web pages that you can customize.
The information these cookies collect will not personally identify you, and they cannot track your browsing activity on non- Controller’s websites.
For reliable review of your order status, on-screen on the application, in real-time, and also for easy reordering, your data may be saved on your device, serving a cookie locally.
Category 4 — Targeting cookies or advertising cookies
These cookies will usually be third-party cookies, although if a user is visiting the advertising network’s own website it is technically possible these could be first party. They will always be persistent but time-limited cookies. These cookies can be associated with services provided by the third party but this is not always the case. These cookies contain a unique key that is able to distinguish individual users’ browsing habits or that can be translated into a set of browsing habits or preferences using information stored elsewhere. Generally speaking, the privacy statement should indicate if the cookie is being used as part of an advertising network. Cookies may also be used to limit the number times a user sees a particular ad on a website and to measure the effectiveness of a particular campaign.
• Cookies placed by advertising networks to collect browsing habits in order to target relevant adverts to the user. The site the user is visiting need not actually be serving adverts, but often this will also be the case.
• Cookies placed by advertising networks in conjunction with a service implemented by the website to increase functionality, such as commenting on a blog, adding a site to the user’s social network, providing maps or counters of visitors to a site.
5. DIRECT MARKETING
5.1. Where you have given your consent or where we have a justifiable reason for doing so (and are permitted to do so by law) we will use your information to let you know about Restaurant’s other products and services that may be of interest to you and we may contact you to do so by email or phone. You can control your email marketing preferences by:
• visiting Restaurant’s website, or mobile application;
• clicking on "Account" (for Restaurant’s website this is under the drop-down menu); and
• scrolling down to "Marketing Preferences".
6. AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING
6.1. We conduct fraud checks on all customers. Where we believe we may detect fraudulent activity we may block you from placing an order and using Restaurant’s Platform.
6.2. We use automated systems including a third party fraud detection provider, which analyses your order data in order to make automated decisions as to whether or not we will accept an order. We find this is a fairer, more accurate and more efficient way of conducting fraud checks since human checks would simply not be possible.
6.3. You have certain rights in respect of this activity - please see 'Your Rights' section below for more information. Our fraud detection is in place to protect all of Restaurant’s customers as well as Restaurant. You have the right to contest any fraud decision made about you and to be given more information about why any such decision was made by contacting Restaurant as set out in section 12 below.

7.2.

7.3. When determining the relevant retention periods, we will take into account factors including:
• Restaurant’s contractual obligations and rights in relation to the information involved;
• legal obligation(s) under applicable law to retain data for a certain period of time;
• statute of limitations under applicable law(s);

International transfers of data
In some cases the personal data we collect from you might be processed outside the European Economic Area ("EEA"), such as Turkey, United States and the countries in which Restaurant’s service provider operates. These countries may not have the same protections for your personal data as the EEA has. However, we are obliged to ensure that the personal data that is processed by Restaurant and Restaurant’s suppliers outside of the EEA is protected in the same ways as it would be if it was processed within the EEA. There are therefore certain safeguards in place when your data is processed outside of the EEA.
We ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
your personal data is transferred to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission;
we use the EU approved Standard Contractual Clauses; and
where your personal data is transferred to third party providers based in the US, data may be transferred to them if they have self-certified under the Privacy Shield framework in relation to the type of data being transferred, which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between the EU and the US.
Please contact us using the contact details above if you want further information on the countries to which personal data may be transferred and the specific mechanism used by Restaurant when transferring your personal data out of the EEA.
9.1. We adopt robust technologies and policies to ensure the personal information we hold about you is suitably protected.
9.2. We take steps to protect your information from unauthorised access and against unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.
9.3. Where you have chosen a password that allows you to access certain parts of the Platform, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We advise you not to share your password with anyone.
9.4. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will take steps to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Platform; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
