3. Cookies

This website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies allow us to make our website more user-friendly, more efficient and more secure. Cookies are small text files stored by your web browser on your device. The cookies from this website might include cookies from third parties such as Google, Facebook or other providers, for example to show our locations on the map and to show you the most recent restaurant menus from our Facebook pages.

 

We use cookies to personalise content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners who may combine it with other information that you’ve provided to them or that they’ve collected from your use of their services.

 

Most cookies that we use are so-called “session cookies”. They will be deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Cookies enable us to recognize your web browser on your next visit. They also help us make your experience on this website better.

 

You can change your web browser settings to inform you when cookies are created, to individually allow cookies, or to generally exclude cookies in certain cases, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the web browser. The deactivation of cookies may break the functionality of this website.

5. Google Web Fonts

For the homogenous display of fonts, this website uses so-called web fonts that are provided by Google. On retrieving a website, your web browser downloads the necessary web fonts to your web browser cache in order to correctly display the text on our website. If your web browser does not support web fonts, your computer uses a standard font and the website might not look as we have intended.

For further information, please see https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq as well as Google’s Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

 

6. Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to display our locations on the map. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). To use the functions of Google Maps, storing your IP address and/or other information listed above in Section 2 “Log Data and other information we collect” might be required. This information will usually be transferred to, and stored on, a server in Europe, in the USA or elsewhere in the world by Google. We have no influence on this data transmission.

7. SSL/TLS Encryption

For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential data, such as enquiries you send to us through our contact form, this website uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can confirm whether the connection is encrypted by checking whether there is a lock symbol in the address bar of the website, and by checking whether the address of the website starts with “https://”. If you see “http://”, it means the connection is not encrypted and any information you send to us through for example contact forms is not protected. In that case, change the address to start with “https://”. Our website should change it automatically in most cases, but your device and/or web browser configuration might prevent that from happening.

When SSL/TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit and have transmitted to us cannot be accessed by third parties other than those defined above in Section 2 “Log Data and other information we collect” and Section 3 “Cookies”.

 

8. Right to Information, Deletion and Blocking

You have the right to be informed about your Personal Information, the origin and recipients of your information, the purpose of processing your information and the right to correct, block or delete your information at any time and free of charge.
