When bookings are made for a restaurant using Tablein system on any other digital platforms, then the restaurant, or partner, is responsible for tracking marketing preferences.
We are not responsible for any restaurant’s use of information for which it is an owner or controller. To learn more about how a restaurant may use such personal information, you should review its privacy notice.
We review our retention periods on a regular basis. We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as it is set out in any relevant contract you hold with us.
Who has access to your information?
Tablein does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties.
Tablein may share your information with other third parties for marketing purposes with your consent. More details can be seen in the Your Choices section below. In such cases, please note that you are subject to the separate privacy policies of such third parties.
Information shared with restaurants and their affiliates
When you make a dining request through our System, such as a restaurant reservation or making a payment to a restaurant through our System, all details pertaining to the reservation is delivered to the restaurant’s Tablein system.
The notifications sent by email or SMS via Tablein systems are to confirm your booking details and to send a survey out after dining.
We or the restaurant may share your information (such as meal or seating preferences and special occasions) with other restaurants in the same restaurant group. This is to enhance the hospitality experience that the restaurant group provides you when you dine with them (such as, trying to seat you by a window, if you previously expressed a preference for window seating) (“customised service”) and to improve the restaurant’s table and shift planning.
In addition to providing you with more customised service, we or the restaurant may, as permitted by applicable law, share your information with such restaurant’s restaurant affiliates to support operations, such as to perform analytics, tailor marketing to you, support a loyalty program that you have chosen to participate in, and improve their services.
For more information, please feel free to contact the restaurants at which you dine or book, or Tablein as detailed in the Contact Information section below.

When we use third-party service providers, we disclose only the information that is necessary to deliver the service. Please be reassured that we will not release your information to third parties beyond Tablein for them to use for their own direct marketing purposes unless you have requested us to do so.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it’s treated securely. Any sensitive information (such as credit or debit card details) is encrypted and protected with the following software, the Secure Socket Layer (SSL). When you are on a secure page, a lock icon will appear on the bottom of web browsers such as Microsoft Internet Explorer. Stripe never stores any card details.
Non-sensitive details (your email address etc.) are transmitted normally over the Internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we have given (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
Who is the point of contact at Tablein in the event of a data breach?
The point of contact from Tablein is the Chief Operating Officer, Paulius Suksteris, who is also our Data Protection Officer. He will invoke the data control procedure as required. Then we will report the breach to the relevant supervisory authority within 72 hours of the organisation becoming aware of it.
Where is data stored?
Data is stored securely in data centres in Lithuania.
We may analyse your personal information to create a profile of your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you. We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively.
