Ads and Information About You
You may see certain ads on our Site because we participate in advertising networks administered by third parties. These networks track your online activities over time and across third party websites and online services by collecting information through automated means, including through the use of the Tracking Technologies described above, and they use this information to show you advertisements that are tailored to your individual interests. The information they collect includes information about your visits to our Site, such as the pages you have viewed. This collection and ad targeting takes place both on our Site and on third-party websites that participate in the ad network. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our communications and marketing efforts.

Please note that certain of your personal information, such as your name or other identifying information, may remain in our database even after a deletion request in order to maintain the integrity and historical record of our database and systems, or to comply with applicable laws and regulations.
We recognize the importance of children’s safety and privacy. The Site is not designed to attract children and is not intended for use by children under the age of 16. We do not request, or knowingly collect or sell, any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 16. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 16 who has provided her or his information to us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request the deletion of that information.
Do Not Track Disclosures
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of an individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing to stop tracking your activity. Various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms for the expression of consumer choice regarding the collection of information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services (e.g., browser do not track signals), but there is no universally agreed upon standard for what a company should do when it detects a DNT signal. Currently, we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms. You can learn more about Do Not Track at www.allaboutdnt.com.

Updating Personal Information
We prefer to keep your Personal Information accurate and up to date. If you would like to change your contact information, please contact us at email@example.com.
If so, we will make good faith efforts to make requested changes in our then active databases as soon as reasonably practicable (but we may retain prior information as business records). Please note that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases and that residual data may remain on backup media or for other reasons, such as a legitimate business reason.
In addition, please note that if you implement a deletion request but later sign up for information or Goods and Services, your most recent request will control our information relationship with you.
We incorporate commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure your Personal Information. However, no data transmission over the Internet, mobile networks, wireless transmission, or electronic storage of information can be guaranteed 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our Site, and you provide us with your information at your own risk.

Notice of Financial Incentives
As permitted by the CCPA, we may offer you certain financial incentives through the rewards programs at our restaurants that can result in different prices, rates, or service levels. The information that we collect for enrollment in the program (listed above) allows us to tailor our communications and products and services suggestions for you. This, in turn, helps us establish a stronger relationship with you – something we truly value.
If you participate in our rewards programs, we may send you promotions or discounts on our Goods and Services. The value of these discounts varies and depends on the type of product you are buying. For example, you could receive a discount of a specified amount off your next visit with us, or a free food item.
In determining the value of this data to us, we consider the profit generated from your visit to us based on the Personal Information you have provided, which is reasonably correlated to the value provided to the consumer through personalized coupons, promotions, and other discounts or offers.
Participation in our rewards programs is voluntary and requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time. If you wish to leave our rewards programs, please reach out to us using the information in the Contact Us section below.
For full program details, please click on the “EClub” or “Preferred Guest” section on our Home Page.
Right to Opt-Out of the Sale or Sharing of Personal Information
As a California resident, you also have the right, at any time, to tell us not to sell Personal Information – this is called the “right to opt-out” of the sale of Personal Information or “Do Not Sell.”
We do not sell Personal Information, but we recognize that some privacy laws define “personal information” in such a way that making available identifiers linked to you for a benefit may be considered a “sale.” To opt-out of this, please click on this link.
Separately, California law also provides you with the ability to limit the use and disclosure of your sensitive personal information, however, we always limit our use of any sensitive personal information to only that which is necessary to perform our services for you, as set forth above. We do not share your sensitive personal information or use that information to infer characteristics about you as a consumer.
Right to Delete Personal Information
You also have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:
- Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, or otherwise perform our contract with you;

- Comply with a legal obligation; or
- Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.
