2. What we do
2.1 Our Site and our App centre on sharing information on independent and family-run food purveyors and places to eat. We aim to provide up to date information on the Vendors, Venues and any offers, vouchers and loyalty programmes they are running. The information that you read on our Site or our App is a great starting point for ideas on where to find Vendors, Venues and their associated offers and vouchers to help you research what suits your particular requirements.
2.2 We aim to provide a broad set of information from which to select potential Vendors and Venues you may wish to use. Vendors and Venues that are active members of our organisation benefit from being featured and promoted more prominently than non-members across the range of services we provide.
2.3 We also manage services on behalf of our members, including but not limited to: websites, digital stamp cards & loyalty programmes, offers, vouchers, online ordering, table booking, inbound and outbound physical media, digital marketing services and social media promotion.
2.4 As a business, we also run our own “Global Points” rewards scheme.
3. What we don’t do
Our information does not constitute any form of advice or recommendation by us and is not intended to be relied upon by you in making (or refraining from making) any decisions on Venues or Vendors you may decide to purchase from, whether directly or indirectly, through seeing their details on our Site or our App. When we mention Venues, Vendors or other service providers on our Site or our App, we often do so because of their attractive offers. As general policy we don’t vet them on customer service or investigate their solvency (how likely they are to go bust). Given that the impact of any information expressed on our Site or our App can vary widely based on your particular circumstances and experiences, you should always carry out your own research into the Venue or Vendor and the products and services they provide that are of interest to you.
5. Information on our Site and our App
5.1 Our Site and our App contain information from other websites, and do include details on, or links through to, those websites, specifically the Venues’ and Vendors’ own websites (if they have one). We don’t control the accuracy or completeness of the information on any Venue or Vendor, whether this is on our Site, our App or the Venue’s or Vendor’s site. You take full responsibility for using that information and verifying it and for any decision to use, purchase or refrain from purchasing any of the services or meals mentioned on a linked site or within our Market and Trade areas.
5.2 When you use other websites, any personal information you give them will be dealt with in line with their privacy policies, not ours, so please read the privacy policies of any such website before providing them with any personal information.
5.3 If, as a Venue representative, you provide or verify information to be published in your listing, you must comply with the following requirements:
5.3.1 the information must be an accurate representation of your business and services;

5.3.3 you must not misrepresent your relationship with us or present false information about us;
5.3.4 you must not infringe any intellectual property or other rights of any person
5.3.5 you must comply with all relevant laws and regulations;
5.3.6 you must not include content that could be considered distasteful or offensive.
If you breach these terms, then we have the right to require that your link is removed and to take whatever other action we think appropriate. If you have a published listing on DinnerData, this may also be removed.
5.4 In return, we undertake to contact you to verify the accuracy of any information about your Venue that appears on our Site or our App, and will remove any listing or information that refers to your business or services if you do not wish it to remain.
