This privacy notice provides information on how Hanover Street Social, a trading division of MLA Restaurants Limited (referred to in this notice as “Hanover Street Social”, “we” or “us”), collects and uses personal data relating to users (referred to in this notice as “you“) of the Hanover Street Social website,, and related services (together referred to in this policy as the “Services“).

This notice is version 3.0 and was last updated on 25 May 2018.


Hanover Street Social (MLA Restaurants Limited) is a company registered in England and Wales with company number 15282680

Hanover Street Social acts as the data controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998 & 2018 and the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) regarding the use of your personal data as described in this privacy notice.


We may collect the following personal and non-personal information from you when you contact us or use our Services:

  • identity and contact information such as name, age, email addresses, telephone numbers;
  • other information you provide to us in customer surveys, competitions and/or offers;

We may also collect information about you from other sources. This may include the following:

  • publicly available information, from sources such as Companies House and the Electoral Roll;
  • information you have shared publicly, including on social media; and
  • information from third party databases or data suppliers.


Our use of your personal data will always have a lawful basis, either because you have consented to our use of your personal data by signing up to our Services, or because it is in our legitimate interests.


Hanover Street Social may disclose your personal data for the purposes outlined in paragraph 3 above to selected third parties, including:

  • service providers and professional advisers; and
  • any investor, lender, purchaser or (on terms of confidentiality) likely investor in, or purchaser of Hanover Street Social business.

There are certain exceptional circumstances in which we may disclose your information to third parties. This would be where we believe that the disclosure is:

  • required by law, or in order to comply with judicial proceedings, court orders or legal or regulatory proceedings;
  • necessary to protect the safety of our employees, our property or the public;
  • necessary for the prevention or detection of crime, including exchanging information with other companies or organisations for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction; or
  • proportionate as part of a merger, business or asset sale, in the event that this happens we will share your information with the prospective seller or buyer involved.


Your personal data is stored in electronic and physical records, which are maintained by Hanover Street Social and/or our service providers. Whilst Hanover Street Social is based in the UK, our service providers may have servers which are located overseas, where the laws may not give the same level of protection to personal data as within the UK.

By submitting your personal data, you agree that we may transfer, store or process your personal data. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy notice.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted to our website and any transmission is therefore at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

We will retain your personal data for as long as you are a user of our Services. You may request that your personal data is deleted at any time by contacting us using the contact details in paragraph 9 below.

  • the right to access the personal data we hold about you;
  • the right to correct any inaccurate or incomplete personal data we hold about you;
  • the right to erasure of your personal data;
  • the right to have your personal data transferred to you or a third party in a common format (data portability);
  • the right to object to direct marketing;
  • the right to object to our use of your data for particular purposes; and
  • the right to restrict the processing of your personal data.

We will inform you (before collecting your personal data) if we intend to use your personal data for marketing purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the platforms which we, or our partners, use to collect your personal data. You can exercise these rights at any time by contacting us using the contact details in paragraph 9 below.

If you wish to make a complaint about our collection or use of your personal data, please contact us using the contact details in paragraph 9 below and we will seek to resolve your complaint. If we are unable to help, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with the UK’s supervisory authority, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Please visit the ICO website for further information about your rights and if you wish to lodge a complaint.
