We, the company «Innopolium Private Company», with registered offices in Athens, Greece at 2, 28th Oktovriou Street, Chalandri (hereinafter “We” or “Innopolium”) are committed to respecting and protecting your privacy and we are obligated to inform you in a transparent way of the processing of your data during your visit to and use of our website www.i-host.gr (“Website”) and mobile application “i-host”(“Application”) and of the respective services (the Website and Application referred to also jointly as “Services”).
We have developed and made available a digital platform allowing for reservations, clientele and table/seats management (the “Platform") addressing the needs of restaurants, hotel restaurants, entertainment venues and similar businesses, offering gastronomic and leisure services (each referred to as a “Venue”). More specifically, our Services are designed for and targeted towards fine dining restaurants, hotel restaurants, casual dining restaurants, all-day bar- restaurants, bistros, and all similar recreation businesses that accept and manage reservations. The Platform is used, instead of paper or calendar notes, by the business personnel of the Venues in charge of managing reservations or offering customer services, as per each Venue’s requirements and internal processes.
The Platform contains information about the Venue’s seats and reservation availability and features functions, allowing for securing, amending or cancelling of online reservations. It also contains any information about the Venue’s customers (“Venue Clients”) that may be required and recorded by the Venue so to help the Venue in managing its reservations and client base and offering personalised services to them. Reservations, associated with the Venue’s customers, can be submitted directly to any Venue using the Platform or via other, third party reservation services used by the Venue. In case of reservations that are submitted through third party services, information about the user that placed the reservation may be transferred to and stored in the Platform from that third party service used for the submission of the reservation. While a Venue Client may be able to complete a payment transaction with the assistance of the Platform or use one of the Platform’s functionalities to enter payment information, for instance, to hold a table or secure a reservation, the Platform does not contain information related to credit cards or such payments made with the assistance of the Platform. All payment transactions are processed by third party payment processors, such as Stripe or Paypal and information about any payment completed is subject to that processor’s policies, while the information is held by the respective third party processor or the Venue.
In order to use our Services, a Venue (or an agent acting on behalf of a Venue in relation to its reservations) shall need to open an account to the Platform in the manner described therein (“Account”).
Personal Data means any information that identifies, directly or indirectly, a person (such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address).
In the context of the Services, the following categories of personal data are collected and further processed through the Platform and for the reasons described respectively:
Such personal information may be the name, email, telephone, as well as, reservation details or food preferences, profile photograph in the respective third-party service media. By using the respective feature of the Platform, a Venue may insert with its own initiative also notes about each of its Venue Clients that the Venue may consider important in order to improve its relation and offering of services to the particular customers, such as any seat or dining preferences or times of visits at the Venue. Where a Venue uses the Services to store the purchase history of the Venue Client, then such information may be linked to the Platform by the Venue point of sale systems.
Such data are stored by the Venue through the Platform on the basis of our contractual obligation with that Venue and the provision of the Services.
A Venue Client may also provide special preferences or comments regarding his/her reservation, which will be transferred to the Venue by the Services.
2.4 Where a Venue Client makes a financial transaction with a Venue via the Platform (in order to secure a reservation), all information necessary to enable the completion of the transaction, including credit card information may be provided through the Platform. However, we do not receive or store payment information directly in our servers, but this information may be shared between Venues and third parties, as set forth herein.
We will process the personal information that you provide us with in the context of the Services and depending on the case, under the following lawful grounds and purposes:
In order to provide our Services to you and specifically in order to enable you to register as an Account holder. In this case, we act because of our contractual relationship by which you will be granted access to and use our offered Services and we will accommodate any related request you may have.
When a reservation is made, using the Services, the Venue Client’s name is provided to the requested Venue. Venue Client’ s email address and phone number are also provided to the Venue in case the Venue needs to contact him/her regarding his/her reservation. The Venue Client may also provide special preferences or comments regarding his/her reservation, which will be transferred to the Venue by the Services. If the Venue Client is interested in receiving promotional or other communications from the Venue, he may “opt-in” to receive such communications from the Venue, either via the Platform or directly, as applicable, and subject to such Venue’s marketing policies, as set forth below.
We share the above mentioned information only with the Venue at which the Venue Client has made reservation using the Service. Venues cannot use the Services to access information of the Venue Client, reservations or related information from other Venues, except of Venues with the same corporate ownership, that may choose to share such information between them. The reservation information provided to the Venue through the Services is used by the Venue in order to secure and manage reservations. If the Venue Client has given the permission to the Venue to communicate any promotional material with him/her, the Venue may do so, subject to the Venue’s policies and procedures, including those relating to the storage and management of personal data of its clients.
As Venues intend to provide Venue Client with the best possible service, they may use the Platform to record purchases via integration with POS or other systems addressing the needs of a restaurant and to take note of Venue Client special requests, allergies, special occasions or other information that will help the Venue provide Guests in a more personalized way better during their next visit. If a Venue chooses to note the Venue Client’s preferences, that information may be typed into the Platform manually, just as a Venue might write a note on an index card. This data belongs to and is solely used by the Venue, since it is a product of that Venue’s relationship with the Venue Client. In this respect, the Venue is solely responsible to ensure that it has lawfully obtained and is in possession of such information, as well as, that it has the legal right to type and have available this information in the Platform (e.g. on allergies of the Venue Client). We may aggregate such preference information and Venue Client notes into data that are not personally identifiable. We also create backup copies of all information stored on the Platform for each Venue, to assist in the restoration process in the event of data loss.
The associated Venues are separate business from Innopolium. While associated Venues are encouraged by us to comply with data protection requirements, we will not be responsible for a Venue’s failure to comply with laws applicable to the use of personal data. Any complaints or inquiries regarding use of Venue Client’s information by a Venue, or marketing communications from a Venue, should be addressed directly to the Venue in question. In no event will we be responsible for information, management, and use of data collected by Venues from their own websites and not stored on the Services.
On the same basis, we will use the respective personal information to verify the Venue Client’s identity using authentication mechanisms and share this with the associated Venues, so to manage the respective bookings at the associated Venues, to communicate Venue Client’s booking interactions (creating, cancelling, modifying) with the associated Venues.
