4c. Use of Children’s Data

Press Up Entertainment Group offers some services to children via the Captain Americas and wagamama brands which are primarily targeted at children, and others that are intended for users of all ages and their families including activities that may collect information from children. Below we summarize potential instances of collection and outline how and when we will provide parental notice and/or seek parental consent. In any instance that we collect personal information from a child, we will retain that information only so long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the activity request or allow the child to continue to participate in the activity, and ensure the security of our users and our services, or as required by law. In the event we discover we have collected information from a child in a manner inconsistent with the GDPR’s requirements, we will either delete the information or immediately seek the parent’s consent for that collection.


Registration for Kids Club

Children up to the age of 12 can be registered for our Kids Club on our Captain Americas and wagamama websites. Every year on the child’s birthday we will send a birthday card to your child’s registered postal address with a voucher for a free kid’s meal.

During the registration process, we ask for the Parents name and email address for notification and security purposes, as well as the child’s first name and date of birth, (for age verification purposes) and a postal address.


We occasionally run in-venue competitions where we collect data. Unless specified with an option to tick a consent box, this information will not be used to market to you. This information is only collected to inform you if you are a lucky prize winner. Data will not be retained after the closing date of any such competition.

About the Collection of a Parent or Legal Guardian’s Email Address

This information is collected for notification and security purposes. If you believe your child is participating in a Kids Club activity that collects personal information and you or another parent/guardian have NOT received an email confirming subscription to the kids club, please feel free to contact us at privacy@pressup.ie. We will not use parent emails provided for parental consent purposes to market to the parent, unless the parent has expressly opted in to email marketing or has separately participated in an activity that allows for such email contact.

When Information Collected From Children Is Available to Others

We may share or disclose personal information collected from children in a limited number of instances, including the following:

  • We may share information with our service providers if necessary for them to perform a business, professional, or technology support function for us.
  • We may disclose personal information if permitted or required by law, for example, in response to a court order.
Parental Choices and Controls

At any time, parents can refuse to permit us to store personal information from their children in association with a particular account, and can request that we delete from our records the personal information we have collected in connection with that account. Please keep in mind that a request to delete records may lead to a termination of a membership, or other service.

Where a child has registered for a Captain Americas or wagamama’s Kids Club, we use one method to allow parents to access, change, or delete the personally identifiable information that we have collected from their children:

  • Parents can contact us to request access to, change, or delete their child’s personal information by sending an email to us at privacy@pressup.ie. A valid request to delete personal information will be accommodated within 30 days as per the GDPR legislation.

Parents of Captain Americas or wagamama’s Kids Club members may contact us directly at: privacy@pressup.ie.
