Description Of CheckPlease Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy provides insight into our GDPR compliance and will outline how our company handles personal data we collect from you to facilitate payments with our restaurant clients. Below you will find details on what data we collect, how we collect data, how data will be used, how data is stored, what your data protection rights are, how to manage your data with CheckPlease, and how to contact us if you have a question or data request.


Credit Cards and Tokenization for Payments on CheckPlease Software


CheckPlease, depending on the method of payment, may receive a restaurant guest’s credit card number, zip code, and expiration date when guest’s provide it to pay their check, otherwise known as a bill, via CheckPlease software. The guest’s credit card information is encrypted and sent to the restaurant’s credit card handling system to facilitate the transaction, and is not stored on CheckPlease software.
The restaurant’s credit card handling system, which generally includes the point of sale (POS) system, processor, and gateway, will use the credit card information provided by the guest to charge the guest credit card on behalf of the restaurant.
If a restaurant guest pays a check using CheckPlease software, but instead uses Apple Pay, Google Pay, or Samsung Pay, CheckPlease is provided an encrypted token and does not receive the credit card information of the restaurant guest at any time.


Other Personal Information


CheckPlease may also receive personal information that includes, but is not limited to the guest’s name, phone number, IP address, information sent to ChecKPlease from the guest’s mobile device like device ID’s, browser details, digital signature images, as well as the date and time of when the guest has interacted with CheckPlease software. If a restaurant is provided permission by the guest to send them a text to pay for their check or bill, CheckPlease will store the name and phone number of the guest. If a restaurant guest provided their email address to CheckPlease, which is needed in order to send a guest an email copy of their receipt, then CheckPlease will store their email address. This helps CheckPlease ensure multiple emails are not sent to the same guest for the same check receipt. If a restaurant guest provides feedback via a feedback form at the end of a transaction or elsewhere, CheckPlease will collect this information as well. This information is shared with the restaurant so that they can continue to optimize their daily operations.


How Information Is Stored & When Is It Disposed


CheckPlease does not store credit card information. Other Personal Information as noted in the previous section is stored on CheckPlease secure servers and/or the servers and systems of any third-party service providers to CheckPlease, or the restaurant related to any checks accessed or paid through CheckPlease software. We may elect to dispose your personal data upon the cancellation of a client (restaurant) contract.


How Information Is Used and Shared


Any and all information is used to optimize the dining experience and facilitate a restaurant guest’s payment as securely and efficiently as feasible by CheckPlease at the time of the guest’s transaction. This generally includes sharing payment related and personal Information with third party systems that are part of the restaurant’s daily operation. Information may, from time to time, be used or shared to verify a credible transaction in case of a payment dispute that a customer may have with a restaurant.
