16. HOW WE MANAGE YOUR DATA
We know there's a lot of uncertainty and anxiety about sharing contact details and what businesses do with that contact data, so we just wanted to make clear how we store your information such as your email address and details of your bookings with us.
All of our restaurant clients are entered onto our secure servers which are based in United Kingdom and France . We collect information - your name, telephone number and email address - so that we can:
- Contact you to let you know about our services and offers. You can opt out of this at any time.
- Follow up on enquiries you may have made via our corporate site
- Keep track of what you use time2dine for, so that we can better improve our services and assist you when you need information
- Set up appointments with decision makers at your venue before sending quotes, installation schedules etc.
- Inform you of our onboarding process should you decide to join time2dine
- Send relevant documents should you become a client
- Add your venue details to the time2dine website and app.
- Arrange staff training at your venue should you become a client
- Seek feedback on our products and services so that we can provide high standards of service
Your data is not used for any other purpose. We do not hold any bank details of restaurant owners, as this information is input via the Stripe payment processor. Go Cardless is also used for regular payments, but again, we don’t have access to bank details.
We store this data securely on our servers and it is accessible to our staff. It is also accessible by the team at The Marketing Department, our agency who help us manage our website, social media and other marketing operations. Client data will also be shared with Optio VA, or any other consultant we engage to assist with admin. and client communication tasks.
