Email marketing system
We operate an email mailing list program though Mailchimp, used to inform subscribers about offers, menus and news. Users can subscribe through an online automated process where they have given their explicit permission. Subscribers can unsubscribe at any time through an unsubscribe link in the footer of sent marketing messages.
Email marketing messages may contain tracked clickable links in order to track subscriber activity within email marketing messages. Where used, such marketing messages may record a range of subscriber data relating to engagement, geographic, demographics and already stored subscriber data.
All emailed marketing communications have a link to unsubscribe from our mailing list, should you prefer no future communications from ourselves.
We may use Facebook advertising services to deliver content to you while you are using the Facebook platform. You can control how Facebook uses data to show you ads by turning off ads which may be based on interests and / or your relationship with specific advertisers, in your ad preference settings.
For further information, please visit the various Facebook pages which allow you to learn more about Facebook ads and tracking technologies and to update your settings:
On your Facebook ad preferences, you will see that ads may be delivered to you according to ‘interests’ or specific advertisers and you can manage your ad preference settings for both of these.
Please note that where you have opted out of receiving our email marketing communications via the methods described above, you may still see our non-targeted adverts whilst you are online, if your interests settings on Facebook are aligned to an audience segment (pre-defined by Facebook) which our business is also associated with. We do not control whether these ads are displayed to you. Please see the relevant links above for details on how to learn more and manage Facebook ad settings.
EPOS system (electronic point of sale)
Our EPOS system records the food and drinks ordered by table in order to produce a bill but does not link this with any other personal data such as email addresses. Card payments are processed through Worldpay and we do not view or hold complete card details. We are PCI DSS compliant through Worldpay.
