We consider matters of user data and data protection of the highest importance and take necessary precautions to ensure the security of all data passed through our site. As such we comply with the data protection act 1998 in relation to all processing of data supplied to us by users and other personal data in our possession for any reason.
2. Personal Information
Personal information will not be shared with any of our business partners or affiliates (excluding restaurants with whom orders have been placed with by you) without your permission. It is treated as confidential, and will not be disclosed to outside parties, unless compelled by applicable legislation.
We only send informational and marketing emails to those people who have specifically requested to receive this information and these emails can be opted out of with immediate effect (details of how to do this will be sent with each email).
In order to ensure high levels of security iTakeout.co.uk uses a web server that communicates using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) when transmitting sensitive data such as credit / debit card details and personal addresses. This web server is also protected by an SSL Certificate which is verified by Equifax Secure Inc. Despite using such technology, due to the nature of the internet iTakeout Ltd cannot guarantee that all data transmitted will be secure, and your use of this website shows your appreciation of this risk.
4. Personal information
We do not sell, trade, lease, load, or rent any personal information to other organisations or individuals. The only time your personal information will be sent to a third party is when you place an order through our site (upon which your name, address, phone number, and email address is passed to the restaurant in order for them to process your order).
iTakeout.co.uk takes the security of customers personal information very seriously and only holds such information in a secure database with limited access. Any sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted seperately and card security digits (also known as CVV or CV2 digits) are never stored in any database by this site (customers must re-enter these digits for each order when re-using credit / debit card information).
Registered users of the site may view all their private data which is stored on iTakeout.co.uk through the customer preferences page. Here users can check and update the information which is held about them.
