CAU is committed to protecting you and your family's personal information when you are using CAU services. We want our services to be safe and enjoyable for our customers. This Privacy and Cookies Policy relates to our use of any personal information we collect from you via the following services:
It also relates to our use of any personal information you provide to us by phone, SMS, email, in letters and other correspondence and in person when visiting our premises.
In order to provide you with the full range of CAU services, we sometimes need to collect information about you.
This Privacy and Cookies Policy explains the following:
CAU is committed to safeguarding your personal information. Whenever you provide such information, we are legally obliged to use your information in line with all applicable laws concerning the protection of personal information, including the Data Protection Act 1998 and the European General Data Protection Regulation, namely Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 repealing Directive 95/46/EC (these laws are referred to collectively in this Privacy and Cookies Policy as the "data protection laws").
To provide you with an online reservation and booking function through this website, we have signed up to a popular third-party booking platform called ‘OpenTable’. This service is used by restaurants across the world to give diners a fast way to check restaurant availability, make reservations and be kept updated by OpenTable on the booking status and other relevant information.
OpenTable is a separate website platform to ours and they directly process data you share with them for the purposes of checking and completing table bookings. They are a provider based in the United States of America who have confirmed that they process data in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and their Privacy Statement can be accessed here < https://www.opentable.com/legal/privacy-policy. However, if you would prefer not to use the on-line booking service on this website, our restaurants can take telephone bookings directly by clicking here https://www.caurestaurants.com/book.
Who are we?
CAU is a chain of 22 restaurants in the UK and another in Amsterdam.
When you participate in, access or sign up to any of CAU's products, services, activities or online content we may receive personal information about you. This includes content such as newsletters, competitions, live chats, message boards, email and mobile notifications, telephone or text CAU, book tickets for a CAU event or create an account using CAU’s online registration system. This can consist of information such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone or mobile number, gender or date of birth. It may also include information collected about your use of CAU products and services (such as when you last visited our premises, what pages you visit on CAU website and items you have “purchased” when signed in to your CAU account).
If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 16, we may process limited personal data about you so you can give consent for the child to access some CAU products or services. We may use your contact details to communicate with you about the child’s account or use of services.
Please note that sometimes we will require you to provide additional personal information, and sometimes sensitive personal information. When we do this we will provide further information about why we are collecting your information and how we will use it.
Where we provide personalised services, we may ask your permission to review third party data about you, for example, your Twitter or Facebook feeds, to get to know you better and to provide more effective personalisation. Some of our services enable you to sign-in via a third party service, such as Facebook. If you choose to sign-in via a third party app, you will be presented with a dialog box which will ask your permission to allow CAU to access your personal information (e.g. your full name, date of birth, email address and any other information you have made publicly accessible). Please note that any information that is not required by the particular service you have opted to use will not be retained by CAU.
CAU will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:
Where CAU proposes using your personal information for any other uses we will ensure that we notify you first. Please see section 18 below for details.
If you have registered for a CAU account this will also allow you to login to the CAU website for your location and some other CAU websites and apps.
To provide you with a seamless experience, it may be necessary to share your personal information within our organisation. We will only share what we need to in order to provide the service you are using – we will never routinely share all of the data we each hold about you.
You might be asked to use your CAU Account on other CAU services to enable you to sign in and seamlessly enjoy CAU services.
Your CAU account will always be covered by the policies of this website. But, please be aware that additional policies may apply if your CAU account is linked to another account.
CAU may contact you:
CAU will only send you marketing emails or contact you on CAU platforms where you have agreed to this. We offer regular emails to let you know about CAU products and services. From time to time we may also contact you to ask your views on issues affecting CAU. We may personalise the message content based upon any information you have provided to us and your use of CAU products and services.
We may use information which we hold about you to show you relevant advertising on third party sites (e.g. Facebook, Google, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter). This could involve showing you an advertising message where we know you have a CAU account and have used CAU products and services.If you don’t want to be shown targeted advertising messages from CAU, some third-party sites allow you to request not to see messages from specific advertisers on that site in future. If you want to stop all personalised services from CAU, including targeted advertising messages on third party sites, you can visit Your Account in the preference centre (see section 11) and disable personalisation there.
We will keep your information within the CAU except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies, including for child protection reasons) or as described in this section and section 9.
Generally, we will use your information within CAU and will only share it outside CAU where you have requested it or given your consent. However, we may share with third party sites (e.g. Facebook, Google, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter) some data, with appropriate security measures, to show you relevant advertising on third party sites, as set out in section 7. Sometimes CAU uses third parties to process your information on our behalf, for example to provide services or analysis. CAU requires these third parties to comply strictly with its instructions and CAU requires that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way. In some cases these third parties are located outside of the European Union.
We may share your personal information internally. Please see section 4 above for more details.
If you are aged 16 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission before you provide any personal information to CAU. If you are under 16 and want to register for a CAU account then you will need to provide your date of birth to make sure you can use the parts of CAU Online that are meant for you and for younger visitors. If you are under 16 then we will need consent from your parent/guardian before you can use some of our services. Please click here for more information about registering for a CAU account.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with CAU. If you delete your CAU account then your personal information is deleted immediately, and the remaining information is anonymised for analytical purposes. For further information about deleting your CAU account, please see section 12 below.
If the data we hold about you is not required for us to fulfil a legal obligation, you can delete your personal data by visiting the preference centre http://CAU.my-pref.com/
As explained in section 11 above, deleting your CAU account will erase any personal information in your account that we have about you and it will mean any data we hold about how you have used CAU products and services will be made anonymous.
You have the right to request a copy of the personal information CAU holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. (We require you to prove your identity with 2 pieces of approved identification). We will use reasonable efforts consistent with our legal duty to supply, correct or delete personal information about you on our files. If you are within the UK, please address requests and questions about this or any other question about this Privacy and Cookies Policy to the Data Protection Officer, CAU, Fourth Floor, 7-9 Swallow Street, London, W1B 4DE

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer, tablet or mobile phone (all referred to here as a "device") web browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your web browser if your browser's preferences allow it. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows. Similar technologies are also often used within emails to understand whether the email has been read or if any links have been clicked. If you continue without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on CAU website. However, you can change your cookie settings at any time. On CAU websites, cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor our websites to your interests.
You will also see embedded ‘share’ buttons on CAU web pages; these enable users to easily share content with their friends through a number of popular social networks. When you click on one of these buttons, a cookie may be set by the service you have chosen to share content through.
CAU does not control the distribution of these cookies. If you continue without changing your settings, we'll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies on CAU website. However, you can change your cookie settings at any time.
It is important to note that if you change your settings and block certain cookies, you will not be able to take full advantage of some features of CAU services and we might not be able to provide some features you have previously chosen to receive.
When you download or use CAU apps on your mobile device, information may be accessed from or stored to your device. Most often this is used in a similar way to a web browser cookie, such as by enabling the app to ‘remember’ you or provide you with the content you have requested.
Your web browser or device may also provide the CAU with information about your device, such as a device identifier or IP address. Device identifiers may be collected automatically, such as the device ID, IP address, MAC address, IMEI number and app ID (a unique identifier relating to the particular copy of the app you are running).
When you sign in to a CAU app, your sign-in details may be stored securely on the device you are using, so you can access other CAU apps on the same device without needing to enter your sign-in details again.
If you have any concerns about the information which might be accessed from or stored on your device by CAU, you may wish to only access CAU content through a web browser and review your web browser settings then please contact us at privacymatters@CAUrestaurants.com.
