This policy applies when you visit our website at and any related websites and mobile applications, and including any pub or bar websites that are "powered by" (these sites are referred to as "Websites" below), including where you register for an account with us, and applies to any data we collect from you, or that you provide to us.

By visiting our Websites and/or when registering for an account with us, you will be accepting and consenting to the collection, use and transfer of your information as set out in this policy.

It is important that you read this privacy policy (together with any other privacy policy or fair processing notice we may provide on specific occasions) when we are collecting or processing personal data about you so that you are fully aware of how and why we are using your data. This privacy policy supplements other notices and privacy policies and is not intended to override them.

We keep our privacy policy under regular review.

1. What information do we collect from you?

We will collect and process the following data about you:

Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with certain services). In this case, we may have to cancel the services you are due to receive from us but we will notify you at the relevant time if this is the case.

2. How do we use and share your information?

When you register to use the Website, your notifications will default to "on". You can change your preferences for the way we contact you from time to time in the "preferences" section of the Website.

We will only use your personal data when the law permits us to do so. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

We may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data. If you would like more details about the specific legal ground we are relying on to process your personal data, please contact us.

Change of purpose

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If you would like us to explain how processing for another reason is compatible with the original purpose, please contact us.

We will not disclose your personal data to any third parties unless we have your consent or where we are entitled to do so by law. Where we do disclose your personal data to a third party, we will have regard to the data protection principles. If we use any third parties to process any personal data on our behalf, we do not allow those third parties to use your personal data for their own purposes and we only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

If your personal data is provided to any third parties, you are entitled to request details of the recipients of your personal data or the categories of recipients of your personal data.

We will use the information that we collect from you for the following purposes:

3. Only processing the personal data that we need to

Your personal data will only be processed to the extent that it is necessary for the specific purposes we tell you about.

4. Where we store your personal data

We will not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area ("EEA") unless such transfer is compliant with the GDPR. This means that we cannot transfer any of your personal data outside the EEA unless:

5. Your rights

You have the right to:

You have the right to object, at any time:

If you object to the processing (as set out above), we must no longer process that personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or that the processing is required for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, you must make the request in writing to [email protected]. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may choose not to comply with your request in these circumstances.

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 your personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

If you provided your consent to any of the processing of your personal data, you have the right to withdraw your consent to that processing at any time, where relevant. Please contact [email protected] if you wish to do so.

We seek to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. From time to time, it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. If this is the case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

6. Data retention

We keep your information only as long as we need it for the purposes for which we process it and as permitted by applicable legal requirements, such as for tax and accounting purposes, or as otherwise communicated to you. This means that personal data will be destroyed or erased from our systems when it is no longer required.

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

In some circumstances (including if you close your account) we will anonymise your personal data (so that you cannot be directly or indirectly identified by that data) and we will retain this data for analytical, research and statistical purposes and recordkeeping integrity. In this case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

If your data has been passed to third parties, its retention by them will be subject to their own data retention policies.
