1.2 Personal data is, in simple terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers (collectively, “Personal Data”). We understand that your privacy is important to you and that you care about how your Personal Data is used.
1.3 We respect and value the privacy of everyone who visits our websites, https://www.dishoom.com or https://store.dishoom.com (“Our Sites”), our social media platforms and/or interact with us in other ways, including accessing wi-fi in our cafes. We will only collect and use Personal Data in ways that are described in this Policy, and in a way that is consistent with our obligations and your rights under the law.
1.4 For the purposes of applicable data protection law (including the EU law version of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU 2016/679) and the Data Protection Act 2018)(collectively the “Data Protection Legislation”) we are a ‘data controller’ of your Personal Data.

6.1 We will keep Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which we obtained it. Thereafter, subject to certain exceptions, we will retain Personal Data until the earlier of: (i) a short period of time after you ask us to stop doing so (to allow us to implement your request); or (ii) 24 months after your last active engagement with us. If almost 24 months have expired since your last active engagement with us, we will contact you to check if you still want to hear from us. If you confirm you do, this will re-set the 24 month period to zero.
6.2 We also keep a record of your email address if you have unsubscribed, or you have asked us not to send you direct marketing, so that you do not receive marketing emails in future.
6.3 By law we have to keep some information about our customers for extended periods after they cease to be a customer. This might be for contractual, financial, tax or regulatory purposes.

6.4 In some circumstances you have a right to ask us to delete your Personal Data: see paragraph 11 below for further information.
6.5 In some circumstances we will anonymise your Personal Data (so it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without the need to notify you.
7. Where will we send your Personal Data?
7.1 Whilst our servers are kept in the UK, Dishoom uses service providers around the world. Consequently your Personal Data may be transferred, stored and/or processed in countries outside of the UK and Europe (the “EEA”). This may include countries where the local laws do not provide the same level of data protection as those in EEA or the UK. For example, some of our suppliers are based in India.
7.2 Where this is the case and we transfer Personal Data outside of the UK/EEA we use specific approved contracts which ensure the same levels of Personal Data protection that apply under the Data Protection Legislation. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more details.

13. Facebook Ads
13.1 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:
Further, by visiting ‘Your Online Choices’, you can opt-out from seeing Facebook’s interest-based ads. You can also use your mobile device settings to configure your advertising preferences.
13.2 Please note that even when you have opted out 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 this.
