Cibus collects information about how you use Cibus websites or other Cibus content online, and the device(s) you use to access the services. This includes collecting unique online identifiers such as IP addresses, which are numbers that can uniquely identify a specific computer or other network device on the internet. 

4. How will Cibus use the information it collects about me?

We want to give you the best possible customer experience. One way to achieve that is to get the richest picture we can of who you are by combining the data we have about you.
We then use this to offer you promotions, products and services that are most likely to interest you. In the case of loyalty scheme members, we’ll also offer you relevant rewards.
The data privacy law allows this as part of our legitimate interest in understanding our customers and providing the highest levels of service.
Remember, if you choose not to share your personal data with us, or refuse certain contact permissions, we might not be able to provide some services you’ve asked for.
Cibus will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:

  • to provide responses to queries you raise with us;
  •  to provide you with the most user-friendly online navigation experience;
  • to provide shareholder registry services;
  • for “service administration purposes”, which means that Cibus may contact you for reasons related to the service, activity or online content you have signed up for, as set out in section 6 below (e.g. to notify you that a particular service, activity or online content has been suspended for maintenance, to notify you of updates to our Privacy and Cookies Policy or Terms of Use);
  • where we provide personalised services, we may analyse the information you supply, as well as your activity using our products and services, so that we can offer a more relevant, tailored service. For instance, we could use your website viewing history to provide personalised recommendations. If you are signed-in or subscribed to email newsletters, you will receive a personalised service. If you don’t want to receive these services you can unsubscribe from email newsletters or disable personalisation.

  • If we discover any criminal activity or alleged criminal activity through our use of CCTV, fraud monitoring and suspicious transaction monitoring, we will process this data for the purposes of preventing or detecting unlawful acts. We aim to protect the individuals we interact with from criminal activities;
  • To comply with our contractual or legal obligations to share data with law enforcement; and
  • Sometimes, we’ll need to share your details with a third party who is providing a service (such as a table booking agent). We do so to maintain your booking. Without sharing your personal data, we’d be unable to fulfil your booking request.

5. When will Cibus contact me?

We may contact you:

  • in relation to any service, activity or online content you have signed up for, in order to ensure that Cibus can deliver the services, e.g. to verify your email when you sign up for a Cibus account, or to help you reset your password/pin or to ask whether you agree to your child’s request for access to certain Cibus service);

7. Will Cibus share my personal information with anyone else?

We will keep your information within the Cibus company except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies, including for child protection reasons) or as described in this section and section 9.

Generally, we will use your information within Cibus and will only share it outside Cibus where you have requested it or given your consent. However, we may share with third party sites (e.g. Facebook, Google, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter) some data, with appropriate security measures, to show you relevant advertising on third party sites, as set out in section 6.

Sometimes Cibus uses third parties to process your information on our behalf, for example to provide services (e.g. click and collect service) or analysis. Cibus requires these third parties to comply strictly with its instructions and Cibus requires that they do not use your personal information for their own business purposes, unless you have explicitly consented to the use of your personal information in this way.
We may transfer personal data that we collect from you to third-party data processors in countries that are outside the European Union such as Australia or the USA.
For example, this might be required in order to fulfil your order, process your payment details or provide support services.

If we do this, we have procedures in place to ensure your data receives the same protection as if it were being processed inside the EU. For example, our contracts with third parties stipulate the standards they must follow at all times. If you wish for more information about these contracts please contact our Data Protection Officer.

Any transfer of your personal data will follow applicable laws and we will treat the information under the guiding principles of this Privacy Notice.

8. What if I am a user aged under 16?

Protecting children’s privacy online is extremely important to Cibus. Our online services are intended for general audiences and do not knowingly collect any personal information from children. When users identify themselves as being children (i.e. under the age of 16), consistent with applicable law we will not provide a path for them to input personal information.

9. How long will Cibus keep my personal information?

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you hold with Cibus. When information is required to be kept by law or for tax reasons, we will hold such information for 6 full tax years or such longer periods if stipulated by relevant legislation or tax law. Any remaining information is anonymised for analytical purposes.

10. Can I delete my data?

As explained in section 9 above, deleting your Cibus account will erase any personal information in your account that we have about you, other than personal data that we are required to keep by law or tax law and it will mean any data we hold about how you have used Cibus products and services will be made anonymous.
