1. SevenRooms Service Overview
Each of the restaurants and other locations available through the Service (a “Venue”) has adopted SevenRooms’ proprietary reservation and inventory management system (the “Platform“). The Platform interacts with the Venue to find available reservations, to secure, change or cancel online reservations, and to confirm that reservations were honored. Where reservations are placed directly with a Venue that uses the Platform, or through other third-party reservation services that the Venue may use, information about patrons of a Venue (each, a “Guest”) is recorded in (or transferred to) the Platform to assist the Venue in managing the reservation and provide services to such Guest. While an individual Venue’s reservation inventory is accessible to the Platform to perform these functions, other information that may be stored by a Venue (for example, credit card numbers) is not accessible to the Platform. Where a Guest may pay or enter payment information via the Platform (either to hold a reservation, or for services received at a Venue), payment is processed by a third-party payment processor and information about that payment is subject to such processor’s policies. Note that in no case does SevenRooms store credit card or payment information on the Service; all such information is held by our third-party payment processor(s) or the Venue itself.
A Note for Guests. SevenRooms’ customers are the Venues (or agents that Venues have contracted to handle their reservations), and only Venue employees or agents have Accounts (as defined below) with SevenRooms. Guests do not have Accounts on the Platform. Except where provisions are specific to Registered Users, Accounts, or Guests, all the terms of this Policy apply equally to both Guest and Registered User information. Our use of information that we process on behalf of our Venues may be governed by our agreements with such Venues. If you have concerns regarding your personal data that we process on behalf of a Venue, please direct your concerns to that Venue.
2. Types of Data We Collect
Information You Provide to Us.
- Account data. We may collect personal data from you, such as your first and last name, gender, phone number, e-mail and mailing addresses, and password when you create an account to use the Services (“Account”). Only representatives of a Venue may create an Account (each such individual, a “Registered User”).
- Transactional data. Such as information relating to or needed to complete your orders on or through the Service, including order numbers and transaction history.
- Marketing data. Such as your preferences for receiving our marketing communications and details about your engagement with them.
- Communications data. If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.
- Survey data. If you participate in a survey conducted via the Services, we may collect additional profile information.
- Other data. We may also collect other personal data not specifically listed here, which we will use as described in this Policy or as otherwise disclosed at the time of collection.
Information Collected From Third Parties.
- Venues. When a Venue takes a reservation directly from a Guest, or receives such information from a third party service or platform (i.e., Google, Yelp), personal data about the Guest is recorded in the Platform. In addition, Guest notes (such as dining preferences) may be recorded in the Platform by Venue staff.
- Public sources. Such as government agencies, public records, social media platforms, and other publicly available sources.
- Private sources. Such as data providers, social media platforms and data licensors.
- Marketing partners. Such as joint marketing partners and event co-sponsors.
- Third-party services, such as social networking sites, that you use in connection with, or otherwise link to, the Site or Services. This data may include your username, profile picture and other information associated with your account on that third-party service that is made available to us based on your account settings on that service.
Information Collected Via Technology.
Information Collected By Our Servers. To make our Site and Services more useful to you, we, our service providers and partners may collect information about you, your computer or mobile device, and your interaction over time with the Site and Services, our communications and other online services, such as:
- Device data. Such as your computer or mobile device’s operating system type and version, manufacturer and model, browser type, screen resolution, RAM and disk size, CPU usage, device type (e.g., phone, tablet), IP address, unique identifiers (including identifiers used for advertising purposes), language settings, mobile device carrier, phone number, unique device id number (Registered Users only), radio/network information (e.g., Wi-Fi, LTE, 3G), and general location information such as city, state or geographic area.
- Online activity data. Such as pages or screens you viewed, how long you spent on a page or screen, the website you visited before browsing to the Service, navigation paths between pages or screens, information about your activity on a page or screen, access times and duration of access, and whether you have opened our emails or clicked links within them.
- Location data. When you authorize (our mobile application/the Services) to access your device’s location.
- Communication interaction data. Such as your interactions with our email, text or other communications (e.g., whether you open and/or forward emails) – we may do this through use of pixel tags (which are also known as clear GIFs), which may be embedded invisibly in our emails.
- Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests. Except as noted in this Policy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to personal data.
How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals. We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals.
Mobile Services. (Registered Users only). We may also device-level data from your mobile device if you have downloaded our mobile application (the “Application”). This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include your geographic location, how you use the Application, and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event our Application crashes on your mobile device, we will receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier, which allows us to identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our Application. This information is sent to us as aggregated information and is not traceable to any individual and cannot be used to identify an individual.
Location of Servers. We maintain servers around the world and your information may be processed on servers located outside of the country where you live. Data protection laws vary among countries, with some providing more protection than others. Regardless of where your information is processed, we apply the same protections described in this policy. For information on how we transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area, United Kingdom, and/or Switzerland, please see the Notice to European users below.

The State Privacy Laws may provide residents with some or all of the rights listed below. Please note that not all rights listed below may be afforded to all users and that if you are not a resident of one of these states listed above, you may not be able to exercise these rights. In addition, we may not be able to process your request if you do not provide us with sufficient detail to allow us to confirm your identity or understand and respond to it. We may decline your request in certain cases as permitted by law.
Furthermore, this section applies only to Personal Information which SevenRooms collects and processes on its own behalf, such as information collected about employees or agents of Venues in the initiation or administration of Accounts.

Exercising your right to opt-out of processing for targeted advertising purposes.

We may require a copy of a valid power of attorney given to your authorized agent pursuant to applicable law. If you have not provided your agent with such a power of attorney, we may ask you to take additional steps permitted by law to verify that your request is authorized, such as by providing your agent with written and signed permission to exercise your privacy rights on your behalf, the information we request to verify your identity, and confirmation that you have given the authorized agent permission to submit the request.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
No Automated Decision-Making and Profiling. As part of the Service, we do not engage in automated decision-making and/or profiling, which produces legal or similarly significant effects.
The GDPR gives you certain rights regarding your personal data. If you are located in Europe, the UK, or Switzerland you may ask us to take the following actions in relation to your personal data that we hold:
- Access. Provide you with information about our processing of your personal data and give you access to your personal data.
- Correct. Update or correct inaccuracies in your personal data.

Exercising These Rights. You may submit these requests by email to [email protected] or our postal address provided above. We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and process your request. Whether or not we are required to fulfill any request you make will depend on a number of factors (e.g., why and how we are processing your personal data), if we reject any request you may make (whether in whole or in part) we will let you know our grounds for doing so at the time, subject to any legal restrictions.
Data Processing Outside Europe. We are a U.S.-based company and many of our service providers, advisers, partners or other recipients of data are also based in the U.S. This means that, if you use the Service, your personal data will necessarily be accessed and processed in the U.S. It may also be provided to recipients in other countries outside Europe.
It is important to note that the US is not the subject of an ‘adequacy decision’ under the GDPR – basically, this means that the U.S. legal regime is not considered by relevant European bodies to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data, which is equivalent to that provided by relevant European laws.
EU-US Data Privacy Framework (“EU-US DPF”), the UK Extension to the EU-US DPF and the Swiss-US Data Privacy Framework (Swiss-US DPF). SevenRooms is certified under the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF and relies on this certification as its primary transfer mechanisms for transfers of personal data from the EU, UK, and Switzerland to the US. SevenRooms adheres to the DPF principles for onward transfers of personal data to third parties and remains liable for damages caused by third parties under the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF unless SevenRooms did not cause the event giving rise to damage. The U.S. Federal Trade Commission has jurisdiction over SevenRoom’s compliance with the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF. More information about the DPF Program is available at: https://www.dataprivacyframework.gov.
In compliance with the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF, SevenRooms commits to resolve DPF Principles-related complaints about our collection and use of your personal information. EU and UK individuals and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our handling of personal data received in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF, and the Swiss-U.S. DPF should first contact SevenRooms at: [email protected].
Independent Dispute Resolution. In compliance with the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF, SevenRooms commits to refer unresolved complaints concerning our handling of personal data received in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF to JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider based the United States. If you do not receive timely acknowledgment of your DPF Principles-related complaint from us, or if we have not addressed your DPF Principles-related complaint to your satisfaction, please visit https://www.jamsadr.com/dpf-dispute-resolution for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.
Residents of Europe, the UK, and Switzerland may also choose to arbitrate unresolved complaints. Prior to initiating arbitration for those unresolved complaints, you must:
(1) contact SevenRooms allowing an opportunity to resolve the issue;
(2) seek assistance from our designated independent recourse mechanism; and
(3) contact the U.S. Department of Commerce and afford them time to resolve the issue.
Each party will be responsible for its own attorney’s fees. This arbitration process is provided through the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK Extension to the EU-U.S. DPF and the Swiss-U.S. DPF. As such, the arbitrator(s) may only impose individual-specific, non-monetary, equitable relief necessary to remedy any violation of the EU-US DPF, the UK Extension, and the Swiss-US DPF with respect to the individual.
Where we share your personal data with third parties who are based outside Europe, we try to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by making sure one of the following mechanisms is implemented:
- Transfers to territories with an adequacy decision. We may transfer your personal data to countries or territories whose laws have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission or UK Government (as and where applicable) (from time to time).
- Transfers to territories without an adequacy decision. We may transfer your personal data to countries or territories whose laws have not been deemed to provide such an adequate level of protection (e.g., the U.S., see above).
- However, in these cases:
- we may use specific appropriate safeguards, which are designed to give personal data effectively the same protection it has in Europe – for example, standard-form contracts approved by relevant authorise for this purpose; or
- in limited circumstances, we may rely on an exception, or ‘derogation’, which permits us to transfer your personal data to such country despite the absence of an ‘adequacy decision’ or ‘appropriate safeguards’ – for example, reliance on your explicit consent to that transfer.
- However, in these cases:
You may contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of Europe.
