  • The rights you have regarding your personal information; 
  • The steps we take to safeguard your personal information; and,
  • Much more so please give it a read!

For any questions, concerns, or comments about this Privacy Policy, or to exercise any of your rights, please contact Thierry Rassam, Our Chief Privacy Officer, at legal@dinetab.com

1. Introduction

DineTab Solutions Inc. (the dineTab, Company, We, Our, Us) provides its users (the Users) the ability to pay their invoice through the App for products and services they purchase at businesses that partner with Us (the SMBs). For a complete, accurate description of what We do, please see Our Terms of Use [hyperlink]. 

We really respect the privacy rights of Our Users, including the person accessing and using this app or website (You). We really strive to provide You with all the details You need about how We collect, use, or disclose Your personal information so that You can provide Us with meaningful consent to use Your personal information. For Your convenience, personal information is information about an identifiable individual (as defined by applicable privacy or data protection laws). Put simply, it is information that can, alone or with other information, identify You as an individual. 

This privacy policy (the Policy) describes the kinds of personal information We collect about You, why We collect it, how We use it, how We protect it, and under what circumstances We share it with third parties. The Policy also describes the decisions You can make about Your personal information, such as how You may require Us to change, amend, or delete the personal information that You have provided to Us at any time. 

The Policy applies to Your use of all of the products and services, including dineTab’s website at dineTab.com (the Website) and dineTab’s application (the App), that are owned, operated and maintained, directly or indirectly, by dineTab, and all other products and services owned and operated by dineTab that redirect to the Website or the App, all subdomains provided through such other products or services, and all downloadable products and services, including any applications, features, functionality, content or information that is made available or provided on the Website, the App, or any of dineTab’s other products or services (the Services). By using the Services, You meaningfully consent to the Policy. In other words, You acknowledge that You have all the information You need to give clear, free, and informed consent and You give Us such meaningful consent to collect, use, or disclose Your personal information. As such, please read both of the Policy and Our Terms of Use very carefully. Again, if You have any questions, concerns, or complaints please do not hesitate to send Us a message. 

a. Modifications to the Policy

We may make modification(s), change(s), or amendment(s) to the Policy from time to time. These modification(s), change(s), or amendment(s) become effective as soon as the updated Policy is published on the Website or the App. If the Policy changes in the future, We will post an updated version on the Website. Your continued use of the Services after any modification(s), change(s), or amendment(s) to the Policy have been made constitutes an acceptance of the modification(s), change(s), or amendment(s). As such, We recommend that You check the Policy periodically to see if it has been updated, and if so, to review it. If You do not agree to the updated Policy, either in whole or in part, then You may not use the Services. You can tell if the Policy has changed by checking the effective date that appears at the top of the Policy. Depending on the circumstances and subject to Our sole discretion, We may also decide to send You a notice electronically that the Policy was changed. 

2. What We collect

dineTab collects Your personal information whenever You use the Services. We only collect the personal information that is necessary to provide You with the Services. As such, We may collect the following information from You whenever You use the Services:

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • GPS location (if You grant Us permission)
  • Credit card number (which is not retained longer than is necessary to complete the transaction), and, if necessary, credit card billing address and mailing address (which is not retained longer than is necessary to complete the transaction)
  • Facial images (only if You upload a picture)
  • Transactions at the SMBs made with the App
  • Stripe account number (please see ‘Fee & Payment’ section in the Terms of Use)
  • Firebase & Google analytics data, which includes information such as device models, operating systems, session duration, Your activities & behaviour on the Services, and demographical information (please visit this website for further information: )

We may also get information about You from third parties, such as Google or Apple. This information can include Your: 

  • Name; and,
  • Email address

As mentioned above, We only collect Your GPS location if You have permitted Us to do so. If You have previously consented to this but would now like to disable it, You can disable location gathering by going to the settings in Your device. For Android phones, this is normally found in the “App permission” section in the settings, and under the category “Location”. In iPhones, this is normally found in the “Privacy” section in the settings, and under “Location Services”.  You will then see a list of applications that have access to Your location. Find the App in the list and turn off the App’s ability to have access to Your location

3. How We collect it

We collect Your personal information through a variety of means. For instance, when You sign up for an account or contact Us, We collect the following information:

  • A record of the transaction 

When You are using the App, We automatically collect Firebase & Google analytics data. If You choose to upload Your photo to Your account, We also collect Your facial image. 

a. Our Use of Cookies and Log Files

We currently do not use cookies or log files but may do so in the future. If We decide to use these technologies, We will notify You and make such a change to the Policy. We may notify You by either sending You an email (if You have an account registered with dineTab) or publishing a notice on the Website and the App that the Policy has been modified, changed, or amended. If We decide to use cookies or similar technologies, We will also provide You with information on how to disable them if it is possible to do so without significantly hindering Our ability to provide You with the Services. 

4. What We use Your personal information for

We use the personal information We collect about You in order to provide You with the Services. This includes:

  • Helping the employees of the SMBs identify You to charge You for the SMBs’ products and services;
  • Helping the SMBs offer personalized promotions or special offers to their regular customers;
  • Processing Your financial & payment information (like Your credit card number, billing address, and mailing address) to complete Transactions at the SMBs;
  • Allowing You to ‘check-in’ at the SMBs (if You have permitted Us to collect GPS location information);
  • Delivering better customer service (for instance, Our customer service representatives can more quickly address Your complaints by knowing Your name and order history);
  • Assessing the performance of the Services, including as part of Our analytics practices which help Us understand how Our users use the Services;
  • Using Your personal information and combining it with other data to create profiles about You which include details about Your personal preferences, interests, or behaviours; 
  • Addressing problems with, improving, and optimizing Our Services, including identifying and repairing errors in the Services;
  • Generating Firebase & Google Analytics data and using such data to conduct activities such as collecting crashes to improve the performance of the Services and events for the Users’ behaviours;

  • Providing You with customized materials about offers, products, or services that may be of interest to You, including new content or services;

  • Managing Your account and preventing it from unauthorized access or fraud;
  • Detecting security incidents, protecting against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent or illegal activity, and prosecuting those responsible for that activity;
  • Ensuring internal quality controls;
  • Enforcing Our Terms of Use and the Policy;
  • Complying with any legal obligations; and,
  • Auditing relating to interactions, transactions, and other compliance activities.

As mentioned above, We collect some of Your financial information, such as Your Credit card number. Again, this information is not retained longer than is necessary to complete the transaction with the SMBs. We use this financial information to facilitate Your transaction with the SMBs, such as processing and fulfilling Your payment to the SMBs and sending You messages that confirm the completion of Your payment.

We will retain Your personal information only for a time and to the extent necessary for the purposes for which it was collected as described in the Policy and for reasonable backup, archival, audit, or other similar purposes. Please see the ‘Data Retention’ section of the Policy for further details

a. Do We use any automated decision-making processes?

We currently do not use any automated decision-making processes to make predictions, recommendations, or decisions about You. However, some third parties that We work with might. For instance, Stripe, Our payment processor, possibly does. Please see Stripe’s website for more details. For more information about the policies of the third parties We work with, please visit their websites or contact them. If You would like a full list of the third parties We work with, please contact Us. However, You can find many of them listed in Section 5 below.

If We decide to start making predictions, recommendations, or decisions about You using automated decision-making processes, We will inform You by either sending You an email (if You have an account registered with dineTab) or publishing a notice on the Website and the App that the Policy has been modified, changed, or amended. We will also provide You provide You with an opportunity to submit observations. 

5. Who We share Your information with 

In accordance with the Policy, We may share Your personal information within dineTab or with Our service providers. We may also share this information with Our financial, insurance, legal, accounting, or other advisors that provide professional services to Us. We may also share information in a manner consistent with the Policy with third parties involved in providing the Services to You, including any authorized resellers, distributors, merchants of record or payment processors, subcontractors or entities participating in Our supply or repair chains, such as Stripe, Mailchimp, Apple, Segment, and Google (like Google Cloud, Google Maps if location gathering services is permitted, and Firebase). While We make best effort to ensure that these third parties provide standard, industry-wide, commercially reasonable security practices, any information that is supplied to them is not within Our control and are subject to these third parties’ own privacy policies and terms of use. 

We may also use third party APIs and software development kits (SDKs) to provide You with the Services. Some of the APIs and SDKs We currently use include Segment, Mailchimp, App Annie, Firebase, Flutter, and Google Tag Manager. APIs and SDKs may allow third parties to collect Your personal information and use it for a variety of purposes, including to provide You with customized content or to provide analytics services to other companies. 

We share Your personal information with the SMBs whose products and services You purchase. Beyond that, We do not share, sell, or rent Your personal information in personally identifiable form with any third party, except if, and to the extent necessary, in Our good faith judgment, doing so is required to:

  • complete Your purchase; 
  • comply with laws or regulations; 
  • respond to a valid subpoena, order, or government request; 
  • establish or exercise Our legal rights or defend against legal claims; 
  • investigate, detect, supress, prevent, or take action regarding illegal or prohibited activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the reputation or physical safety of any person; or,
  • as otherwise required by law. 

We may anonymize Your personal information and maintain and use it in anonymous form that may later be combined with other information to generate aggregated, but still anonymous, information. Such anonymous and aggregated information may be sold, traded, rented, or shared.

If dineTab is to be sold, merged, or amalgamated or substantially all of its assets are to be sold or disposed of, Your personal information may be transferred to a potential purchaser if, and to the extent necessary, it is required for the purposes of deciding whether to proceed with the proposed transaction and completing it. If such a sale, merger, acquisition, or disposal is completed, the purchaser may use and disclose Your personal information only to the extent described in the Policy if the information relates solely to the carrying on of the business or activity or the carrying out of the objects for which the sale, merger, or acquisition took place.

a. International Transfers

We store some or all of Your data in the cloud using the Google Cloud platform (the Cloud Provider). As such, Your personal information may be collected, used, processed, transferred, and retained in multiple countries including Canada and the United States, and thus may be outside the region in which You are situated and may have different privacy or data protection legislation, and may therefore be subject to the laws of those countries. 

If You are a resident of a country which restricts data transfers outside of that jurisdiction or region without Your consent, by agreeing to the Policy and using the Services, You consent to Your personal information being transferred outside of Your country for processing or storage by or on behalf of Us and the Cloud Provider. If You reside in the European Economic Area (EEA), We may transfer Your personal information to Canada or the United States. If We transfer it to Canada, We use the European Commission Adequacy Decision as a safeguard. If We transfer it to the United States, We use the Model Clauses or self-certification under the Privacy Shield as safeguards. 

Regardless of where You reside, if We transfer Your personal information outside of Your jurisdiction, We take steps to reasonably ensure that Your personal information is appropriately safeguarded and its use, collection, or disclosure is in accordance with the Policy.

6. Security 

We aim to provide You with a safe experience. We have in place certain physical, electronic, technological, and organizational safeguards to appropriately protect the security and privacy of Your personal information against loss, theft, unauthorized access, unauthorized disclosure, and unauthorized copying, use, or modification. For example, We use secure HTTPS certificates, SSL (Secure Socket Layers), Tokens, and other standard, industry-wide, commercially reasonable security practices. 

Moreover, We use the following services provided by Google, which We have ensured provide standard, industry-wide, commercially reasonable security practices: Google Maps, Firebase & Google Analytics, and Google Cloud. You may find more information about their security practices on their respective websites. 

Please note, however, that while We try to make the Services secure and reliable for the Users, We cannot guarantee the security or confidentiality of any data or material, including Your personal information, transmitted to or from the Services or via email. The transmission of data through the internet is never completely secure. As such, You acknowledge that any transmission of information to and from the Services carries some risk and that You do so at Your own risk.

We take the security and confidentiality of Your data very seriously. We limit access to Your personal information within the Company to individuals on a need-to-know basis. More specifically, this means We only let those individuals who need Your personal information to provide the Services have access to this information. Currently, this is limited to only senior management and executives. If this changes, We will let You know. We will notify You by either sending You an email (if You have an account registered with dineTab) or publishing a notice on the Website and the App that the Policy has been modified, changed, or amended.

As mentioned above, We will retain Your personal information only for a time and to the extent necessary for the purposes for which it was collected as described in the Policy and for reasonable backup, archival, audit, or other similar purposes. Please see the ‘Data Retention’ section of the Policy for further details.

If We become aware that We have unknowingly collected personal information from a child under the age of 14, We will make commercially reasonably efforts to delete such personal information from Our database. 

You may reside in a jurisdiction that, because of Your age, requires Your parental or guardian authority to consent on Your behalf in order for You to use the Services. If this applies to You, please ask Your parental or guardian authority to review the Policy. By Your use of the Services, You acknowledge and represent that Your parental or guardian authority has agreed to the Policy and has given their consent for You to use the Services.

PLEASE READ THE TERMS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THE SERVICES. THE TERMS IMPACT YOUR RIGHTS AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, MAY LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO ENFORCE THOSE RIGHTS. THE TERMS LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO BRING FORTH OR PARTICIPATE IN A CLASS ACTION, COLLECTIVE OR REPRESENTATIVE PROCEEDING OF ANY KIND. THEY ALSO INCLUDE AN AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE, WHICH WOULD REQUIRE YOU TO SUBMIT YOUR CLAIMS AGAINST US TO BINDING ARBITRATION, FURTHER LIMITING YOUR ABILITY TO ENFORCE YOUR RIGHTS.

By accessing or using any of the Services, You hereby represent and warrant that You have read, understood, and agree to be bound by the Terms. If You do not agree to the Terms, then You may not access or use the Services.

Also, dineTab can change, modify, or replace the Terms at any time and at its sole discretion without incurring any liabilities or obligations. dineTab will publish a new copy of the Terms on the Website and the App. dineTab will also indicate, on the top of the page, which date the Terms were last updated. If dineTab makes any significant or material changes to the Agreement, it may send You an email (if You have an account registered with dineTab) or publish a notice on the Website and the App. Any modifications to the Terms become effective as soon as the modified Terms are published on the Website or the App. Your continued use of the Services after any changes to the Terms have been made constitutes an acceptance of the change(s).

You acknowledge and agree that We may do so at Our sole discretion and at any time without notice or liability.

What We Do

dineTab provides its users (the Users) the ability to pay their invoice through the App for products and services they purchase at businesses that partner with Us (the SMBs). dineTab is not a restaurant or a food preparation business or otherwise a retailer of any of the products and services the Users pay for through the App. We do not offer the SMBs’ products or services (the SMBs’ Products & Services) themselves nor are We involved in the production of the SMBs’ Products & Services offered by the SMBs. dineTab is a limited agent for these third party SMBs with the authority to collect payment from You on behalf of the SMBs for the purchase of the SMBs’ Products & Services. We simply facilitate transactions and provide You with the ability to pay Your invoice at the SMBs directly through the App. In other words, We are not responsible for the SMBs’ Products & Services themselves. We do not verify the SMBs compliance with any applicable laws or regulations and are not responsible for any defects in the SMBs’ Products & Services, including in terms of their safety. This is the sole responsibility of the SMBs. Accordingly, the SMBs’ Products & Services You purchase and consume constitutes a separate agreement between You and the SMBs to which dineTab is neither now, nor going forward, a party. Furthermore, all complaints regarding the SMBs’ Products & Services should be directed to the SMBs. We do not assist in resolving these complaints nor do We have any obligation whatsoever to compensate You for any issues You encounter with the SMBs or the SMBs’ Products & Services. 

Creating an Account 

In order to use the Services, You will need to create an account with Us. When creating an account, You will have to provide Us with some of Your personal information, such as name, telephone number, email address, and financial information (such as credit card information). You agree that You will provide accurate, complete, truthful and current information. You further agree that We may verify this information at any time. 

During the account creation process, We will require You to create and use a mechanism to uniquely verify Your identify. This verification may use a variety of forms, like alphanumeric password or a biometric characteristic (such as fingerprints) and may be combined with other identification methods such as two-factor authentication (collectively, the Identification Methods). You agree that You will keep Your account secure by restricting others from accessing Your account, including by restricting knowledge or use of the Identification Methods and otherwise keeping them secure and confidential. Moreover, You agree to promptly notify Us of any unauthorized access to Your account or of any security breaches. You also agree to accept all responsibility for all of Your account activities, including those activities that are the result of unauthorized access to Your account. In addition, You agree to provide Us with whatever proof We may reasonably need to verify Your identity.

By using the Services, You verify that:

  • You are the age of majority or older in Your jurisdiction of residence; or,
  • if You are between the ages of 14 and the age of majority in Your jurisdiction of residence, You are using the Services under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who agrees to be bound by the Terms.

The Services are not targeted towards, nor intended for use by, people under the age of 14. By using the Services, You acknowledge that You are 14 years old or older. 

Furthermore, if You are under the age of majority in Your jurisdiction of residence, and Your jurisdiction of residence prevents people under the age of majority from using the Services or entering into a legally binding agreement such as the Terms, then You may not use the Services.

These electronic messages may be sent for reasons such as providing proof of payment for Your purchase with the SMBs, for security reasons, or any issues encountered when We facilitate the transaction between You and the SMBs.
