Writing reviews on the site
When you submit a review on our website we ask you to provide a username and email address to ensure – as much as possible – that reviews are legitimate. The information is kept within the website database. If we need to ask you about your review one of our administrators will access your email address so we can contact you via email. We do not export emails from our website to any other database or tool. For example, we do not add you to our mailing list just because you wrote a review. If you would like to receive our newsletter we ask you to subscribe separately. To delete your account please email: accounts@restaurantsbrighton.co.uk. Please use the email you used to submit the review.

Visiting the site
We use Google Analytics cookies to track anonymous usage statistics but we do not collect any personal information that can be used to identify you. This data helps us analyse web page usage and improve our website in order to tailor it to our audience needs. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got there and what you clicked on. We have limited the time the data is stored to 38 months which we consider to be necessary and useful to review trends and changes in use.

Cookies
A cookie is a small piece of data that is sent from our web server to your browser. It is stored on your hard drive. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other websites, and will not damage your system. You can reset your browser to refuse cookies or alert you when a cookie is being sent. We do not use cookies to identify you.

Subscribing to our mailing list
We use Mailchimp to send out our newsletter about twice a month. Mailchimp only records your email address. When you subscribe to our newsletter you are sent an email which asks you to confirm that you really do want to subscribe. Of course you can unsubscribe at any time.

If you have any further questions about how we use your data please email: accounts@restaurantsbrighton.co.uk.
