At Tidan Hospitality Group we are concerned about privacy issues and are committed to earning the trust of our guests and Website users by adhering to high standards respecting the protection of personal information.
By using the Website or by submitting your personal information to Tidan Hospitality Group, you signify your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with the terms of this Policy. If you do not consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information in accordance with this Policy, you should not access or use the Website nor provide any personal information to Tidan Hospitality Group. Certain services can only be offered to you if you provide personal information to Tidan Hospitality Group, and therefore we may not be able to offer you those services if you choose not to provide us with the required personal information.
This Policy outlines how we handle the information about you that we collect, use, disclose and receive when you visit the Website or otherwise provide us with information. Protecting the privacy and personal information of our visitors is of utmost importance to us and it dictates the way we organise and implement our activities both on and off line.
Links To Other Sites
The practices that are outlined in this Policy apply solely to Tidan Hospitality Group and the Website. Other organisations that are linked to the Website may adhere to different privacy standards. When visiting the websites of other organizations, you are encouraged to first review their respective privacy policies. Please note that Tidan Hospitality Group is not responsible or liable for the privacy policies or content of third-party sites. Your use of such other sites and your dealings with the owners or operators of such other sites is at your own risk.
In this Policy, personal information includes any information about an identifiable individual or any information that allows an individual to be identified, such as, for example, your name, address, e‑mail address or telephone number; however, personal information does not generally include business contact information, such as your name, title or position, business address, business telephone or fax number in your capacity as an employee of an organization. It also does not include aggregated information that does not allow an individual to be identified.
In general, you may browse the Website without disclosing any personal information. If you visit the Website to read or download information, we may collect and store the following information that is automatically recognised, namely the date and time you access the Website, the pages viewed, the originating IP address, the domain name, the type of browser and operating system used, the URL of the referring page, the object requested and the completion status of the request.
Tidan Hospitality Group will collect, use and disclose personal information for the purposes identified at the time of collection of the information, or as otherwise permitted or required by applicable law, including for the following purposes:

We also collect the personal information that you volunteer when you register on our "Special Sign Up" or "Invite a Friend" and use pages or via orders, surveys, e-mail or other forms. Should you choose to submit the personal information of another person via our "Invite a Friend" page, you understand and agree that the "Invite a Friend" feature is intended to be a simple way to share information respecting Tidan Hospitality Group with a friend and you represent and warrant that, prior to submitting such information, you have obtained the recipient's consent to provide their email address to Tidan Hospitality Group and to allow Tidan Hospitality Group to use their e-mail address for this purpose.

The "Invite a Friend" feature is not intended to encourage spam and action may be taken against individuals who maliciously enter the personal details of another individual.
Like many other websites, this Website may automatically collect certain non-identifiable information from users to help us provide better customer service. For example, we keep track of the sites from which people visit and we also measure visitor activity on the Website, but we do so in ways that keep the collected information anonymous. We use such information to measure the number of visitors to the different areas of the Website, and to help us make the Website more useful to visitors. This includes analysing these logs of anonymous information periodically to measure the traffic through our servers, the number of pages visited and the level of demand for pages and topics of interest. The logs may be preserved indefinitely and used and/or disclosed at any time and in any way to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the data on our servers.
We collect the anonymous information mentioned above through the use of various technologies, including 'cookies'. Cookies – an industry standard – refer to information that an Internet site transfers to your hard drive for record-keeping purposes.
Also, when collecting personal data from you in connection with a transaction we may extract some information about that transaction in an anonymous format and combine it with other anonymous information. This anonymous information is used and analysed only at an aggregate level to help us understand trends and patterns. None of this information is reviewed at an individual level. We do not associate the information stored in a visitor's cookie with any other personal information about that visitor. If you do not want your transaction details used in this manner, you may disable cookies on your Internet web browser or opt-out at the order or request stage.
