Our Privacy Policy

About Us

Caffeine Lounge (“Caffeine Lounge”, “we” or “us) is currently the UK’s largest Esports bar and we take your privacy very seriously when you choose to use our services (the “Services”).
By using our website and/or services you understand that we may use the personal data you provide to us. Should you not agree to this then you must cease using our website and/or services with immediate effect.

Personal data we may collect

When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect information from you. We collect two types of information:

⦁ Personal information. This is collected through the information you provide to us.
⦁ Non-personal information. This is collected through the use of cookies and tracking technology. Please see our section on Cookies. When you interact with us through the Services, we receive and store certain information such as an IP address, device ID, and your activities within the Services. We may store such information or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of messages users have sent, as well as the sites which refer visitors to us.

How we process personal data

We only process personal data in order to provide services and this information is only used for legitimate interests. For example, so that:
⦁ You may have a user account on our website;
⦁ You may have a user account on our computerised systems when you visit our venue(s);
⦁ You may purchase goods (including digital goods) from our online store;
⦁ We can process enquiries, refunds and returns etc.

Please note this list is not exhaustive but is merely indicative of how we might use your personal data from time to time. We may also use your personal data if required to do so by law.

In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, we may also conduct research on our customer demographics, interests and behaviour based on the information collected. This research may be compiled and analysed on an aggregate basis, and we may share this aggregate data with our affiliates, agents and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

You may give us permission to collect your information in other services. For example, you may connect a social networking service (“SNS”) such as Facebook or Twitter to your online account. When you do this, it allows us to obtain information from those accounts (for example, your friends or contacts).

We will not hold your personal information for any longer than necessary; nor outside of relevant data protection legislation.

We may expand our use of cookies to save additional data as new features are added to the Service. In addition, we use technologies such as web beacons and single-pixel gifs to record log data such as open rates for emails sent by the system.

How to opt-out of personalised advertising

Should you not wish to receive personalised advertising through our carefully selected third parties then you can simply opt out by contacting us. You may also be able to exercise this choice through opt-out programs which are administered by third parties, including the Network Advertising Initiative and the Digital Advertising Alliance. Our services do not currently respond to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals and operate as described in this Privacy Policy whether or not a DNT signal is received.

 

How we might use your personal information

We will only ever use your personal information for legitimate purposes and will always ensure we comply with relevant data protection legislation.

If you provide information for a certain reason then we may use the information in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For example, if you contact us by email we will use the information you provide to answer your question and/or resolve your problem.

We may also use your information to provide you with access to or use of our website and associated services, to monitor the use of our services, make improvements and to respond to any enquiries you may make of us.
