We collect information when:
What do we collect?
We keep customer information in two separate databases, for two separate purposes:
We collect credit card details for bookings of five people or more and for special events such as music dinners. BookaTable uses a third party ( Braintree) to store the card details, and the process is fully PCI compliant. The details are not stored by either BookaTable or The Wet Fish Cafe. The booking system uses SSL encryption to transmit all credit card details. Card details are not held for future bookings.
If you are interested in working with us, we may hold your CV and application letter which may include personal details, employment details, education, salary history and other relevant details.
We collect anonymous website usage data using Google Analytics to enable us to monitor and track website usage and to understand and respond to the needs of our users.
How do we get people's information?
Customer data is collected using BookaTable when an individual makes a booking via the Bookatable widget on our website, via one of BookaTable's third party websites, or when an individual contacts us via email or telephone to make a booking.
Customers can opt-in to marketing emails either by writing their name and email address on a comment card (which is held on our premises and then shredded), or by sign-up forms on our website, or by ticking an opt-in marketing consent box on the BookaTable form when making a booking. We operate a double opt-in feature, meaning that customers will first receive an email which requires them to confirm opt-in before they receive marketing emails from The Wet Fish Cafe.
If you are interested in working with us, you may submit your CV by coming in person, or online via email or our website.
Website usage data is collected using Google Analytics on our website.
How we use your information
Our use of your personal data will always have a lawful basis, either because it is necessary to complete a booking or because you have consented to our use of your personal data (by opting in) to contact you regarding news from The Wet Fish Cafe, such as upcoming music dinners or special offers.
If you sign up for our mailing list your data will not be disclosed to any company outside of The Wet Fish Cafe and we will only contact you about The Wet Fish Cafe news and events.
If you are applying to work with us, we will use the information you have supplied to us (CV, cover letter etc.) to assess your application. We may also keep it in our records for future reference. Please contact us if you no longer wish for us to hold your records at [email protected].
