What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

We use cookies to give you the best online experience. By agreeing you accept the use of cookies in accordance with our cookie policy.

Our COVID-19 Policy

With over 30 years of experience - hygiene simply isn’t new to us. Rest assured when you choose to dine with us your safety is our priority and will not be compromised.

  • Initially operating at below 50% capacity - Supporting social distancing measures between customers; tables spaced at least 1 metre apart and facilities not being overused. The lower capacity means fewer staff will be required and those that are will be temperature checked on arrival.
  • Increased cleanliness and hygiene - hand sanitizers will be available throughout the restaurant for both customer and staff use. A further 15 minutes will be given between sittings to enable a full clean of tables and chairs. Customers will be encouraged to view menus on their personal mobile device, enhanced through a QR code/menu link on every table. Cutlery and condiments will only be placed on tables once the order is received.
  • Avoiding queues - bookings will be staggered to avoid customers arriving at the same time. Customers will be asked to remain at their table as much as possible and cannot attend the bar.
  • A warm but ‘contactless’ Sotirio’s welcome - we want to hug you as much as you want to hug us but unfortunately we will have to save them for another day. Hopefully summer hangs about - our cloak room will be closed for now.

If you have any concerns regarding COVID-19 please feel free to contact us via phone or email:
