What are the Government guidelines I should conform to?
UK and US state Governments are now mandating in many areas to hold a temporary record of customer details, including name, phone number and email address, and hold them for around 21 days.
For example, on June 23 2020, the England Government updated their guidelines for reopening restaurants, pubs, bars. There are 2 guidelines this solution manages for hospitality clients:
Section 2.1 states:
- You should assist [ NHS Test and Trace] by keeping a temporary record of your customers and visitors for 21 days, in a way that is manageable for your business, and assist NHS Test and Trace with requests for that data if needed.
Section ‘2.2.2 Service at the venue’ suggests the steps that will usually be needed:
- Encouraging use of contactless ordering from tables where available. For example, through an ordering app.
If you already have a booking system, this will hold the customer data for you.
However if you don’t, the Food Ordering app from Fliplet will automatically record and securely store customers data to comply with GDPR and data privacy laws. It gives you the ability to safely access the data if requested to do so by the authorities and delete the data after the appropriate time.
