For requests to dine, this information may include your name, dining profile, time and date of visit, party size, your phone number, your dining preferences, guest information, any special requests or comments that you choose to submit (if any), and your email address. Your information is provided to the restaurant, just as it would if you contacted the restaurant directly. If you provide a mobile phone number in connection with your dining request, restaurants may send you text messages regarding your dining request. Some restaurants also require you to provide credit or debit card account information to secure your reservation.
When you make a dining request, we may also share with the restaurant additional information about you, such as information about your dining activity and history, and/or information that we collect from third parties. Depending on where you reside, and as permitted by applicable law, we or the restaurant may additionally share certain of your information with such restaurant’s affiliated restaurants (such as affiliated brands), restaurant group and/or restaurants with the same brand or parent-brand (collectively, such restaurant’s “restaurant group”), or other entities associated with such restaurant (such as the parent entity of the restaurant group or affiliated hotels) and/or their service providers (collectively, the associated entities and service providers, such restaurant’s “restaurant affiliates”) under The Phoenix’s programs.

In addition to providing you with more customized service, we or the restaurant may, as permitted by applicable law, share your information with such restaurant’s restaurant affiliates to support operations, such as to perform analytics, tailor marketing to you, support a loyalty program that you have chosen to participate in, and improve their services.
