What is the purpose and legitimacy behind Sigla processing my personal data?
At Sigla, we are concerned about protecting our users’ privacy as well as protecting their information in a secure manner. Pursuant to data protection regulations, we would like to inform our users of how we will process their personal data. These are the purposes for which Sigla will process users’ personal information:
1. To manage requests sent through a contact form. With your consent as obtained from the contact form, Sigla will process the necessary information to manage your request either to manage an incident, a suggestion, complaint or claim. When such request affects businesses not owned by Sigla, we shall share your information with the company that owns the business (including non-Grupo Vips third parties as per our franchising model).
A list of entities comprising Grupo Vips is available to users under section 1.1 of the “Terms and Conditions of Use”, which is accessible via the following link: http://www.grupovips.com/legal.
2. To manage reservations requested by users. Reservation forms are available to users in order to eat at our restaurants. Sigla will process the necessary data to manage your reservation request and process it. Reservations may be accepted or rejected for various reasons (including when the occupancy for the selected restaurant is complete).
In cases where the reservation is for a restaurant managed by Grupo Vips entities or our franchisees, we will communicate the user’s information relating to the reservation so the restaurant may process it and ensure the user’s request is handled.
If the user orders delivery service of our products through third-party delivery platforms (Just eat, Glovo, etc.) (hereinafter, the “Platform(s)”), we will receive information for such requests. In these cases, the user is informed that, when ordering our products through these Platforms, the data controller is the owner of the corresponding Platform and in such case, Sigla is simply acting as a service provider for said Platforms. Sigla will only process this information to handle the request sent by the user to the corresponding Platform without any further purpose and without storing any information in such case.
3. Participation in promotions, drawings, contests, etc. Only with your consent, as granted through a positive action of participating in the promotion, drawing or contest, will Sigla process your personal data to manage the promotion, drawing or contest involved.
4. To collect information through cookies. You may find the cookies policy at the following link: https://www.vips.es/politica-de-cookies
How long will we save your data?
Sigla will comply with the provisions of current regulations on the obligation of deleting personal information that is no longer necessary for the purpose(s) for which it was collected or blocking it in order to fulfill any liability deriving from data processing and only for the prescription periods to which such liabilities are subject. Once such periods end, the information will be definitively eliminated using secure methods.
To whom do we communicate your data?
If you have a complaint, suggestion or claim involving any of our Grupo Vips companies with businesses open to the public, we will communicate your information to those entities. A list of entities comprising Grupo Vips is available to users under section 1.1 of the “Terms and Conditions of Use”, which is accessible via the following link: http://www.grupovips.com/legal.

In any case, we may communicate this information to the Spanish police forces or courts in view of possible cases of fraud by users of our services through the website as well as in relation to consumers at physical locations.
On the other hand, Sigla may collaborate with third-party service providers for the previously described aims and, therefore, they may have access to personal data as a result of the performance of the services contracted.

How do we obtain your data?
The personal data Sigla processes regarding its users are directly communicated by the user upon formulating the request referred to in the section “What is the purpose and legitimacy behind Sigla processing my personal data?”
How does Sigla obtain user consent?
As necessary and as outlined above, Sigla will obtain consent from users through the specific boxes on online forms and the users’ voluntary positive actions.
How can users withdraw consent?
