The Genuine Dining Co trading as Lunch Cubed GDPR Privacy Notice

(How We Use Your Information)

(V1 May 2018)


On the 25th May 2018 new legislation on Data Protection enters into force – The General Data Protection Regulations 2018 – “GDPR”.

GDPR replaces previous legislation and contains lots of obligations which Genuine Dining Co (GDC) trading as ‘Lunch Cubed’ must fulfil. Many of the Rules are the same as under previous legislation but there is plenty of new material.

GDPR is an EU Directive directly applicable in all Member states without the need for local legislation and with effect from 25th May 2018. However, the UK has decided that it wants the content of GDPR to apply after the UK leaves the EU and has tabled a Bill in the House of Lords which will achieve this objective. At first sight the Bill looks the same as GDPR (with adjustments which the group of companies (GDC) / (Lunch Cubed) believes are mainly not relevant to the groups position) but things change and the group will need to review its position once the Bill becomes law. GDPR, including its preamble, contains some 54,000 words so the group of companies (GDC) / (Lunch Cubed)  hopes you will be understanding if we attempt to reduce that to some succinct explanations at the risk of leaving some questions in Members’ minds. All such questions and doubts can be emailed to the group of companies and the designated company controller. GDPR already allows (GDC), (Lunch Cubed) (“Controller” in GDPR-speak) to introduce operational rules and policies compliant with the new Directive. (If you spot an error please tell us by email.)

GDPR profoundly changes the way the relationship between the group of companies (GG) / (Lunch Cubed)  in relation to the information (data) which the group of companies collects from you and then processes and stores. No data is provided to or accessed by a third party such as an event venue. Most of the law is mandatory but where there are options this notice will identify and explain the option the group of companies (GDC) / (Lunch Cubed)  is using. Many of the terms are rather technical but we need to use specific terms in order to say exactly what GDPR stipulates. The group of companies (GDC) / (Lunch Cubed)  first task is to be a lawful processor of your data.

The Genuine Dining Co (GDC) / (Lunch Cubed)  does not believe that the data it holds give rise to any need to report a breach to the Information Commissioner within 72 hours, but it is conscious of the possible need to do so.)  Paper records are also held securely.
