Disclosure of the information we collect

We will not disclose your Personal Information without your consent, except as follows:

  • We may retain other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Such third parties may be provided with access to Personal Information needed to perform their functions, in each case consistent with this Privacy Policy, but may not use such information for any other purpose.
  • We may disclose any information, including, without limitation, Personal Information, we deem necessary, in our sole discretion and without your prior permission, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to protect the interests or safety of our visitors and customers, employees or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Papa Gino’s reserves the right to disclose your Personal Information if we believe you have or are violating this Privacy Policy or any other User policy available on the Sites, or in order to protect or defend Papa Gino’s rights or property, even without a subpoena, warrant or other court order.

Papa Gino’s does not assume, and expressly disclaims, any liability for third parties that have been provided with information as permitted by this Privacy Policy or who have collected information as permitted by this Privacy Policy (such as advertisers using third party cookies).

Controlling your information

We are committed to our customers and we respect their privacy. If you tell us that you do not want us to use your Personal Information to contact you, Papa Gino’s will respect your wishes. However, you acknowledge that, by opting-out of letting us use your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, the Sites or certain Services, or features thereof, may no longer be available to you. In addition, we are not responsible for removing your Personal Information from the lists of any third party who has previously been provided your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you would like to modify or delete your Personal Information (including, without limitation, your User Login, email address, contact information, other Personal Information and user preferences), please send an email to DigitalMarketing@papaginos.com with clear instructions about the information that you would like to have modified or deleted. You must promptly update your Personal Information if it changes or is inaccurate.

If you have been provided a User Login to access any Restricted Area, you are responsible for all actions taken with your User Login. Therefore, we recommend that you do not disclose such User Login to anyone. You may not allow others to use your User Login to access or use any part of the Sites or any Services. If your User Login has been compromised for any reason, you should contact us immediately to obtain a new User Login.

On your request, we will deactivate your User Login and remove your Personal Information from our active databases. We will retain in our files the Personal Information you have asked us to remove from our active databases to prevent fraud, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our User policies and comply with legal requirements. Therefore, you should not expect that your Personal Information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests. However, such Personal Information will only be available to select employees, service providers and governmental persons or entities.

Opt-out policy

You have the right to have any of the information you provide removed from our database at any time. To remove your information and/or terminate your registration, please email DigitalMarketing@papaginos.com. If you do not feel comfortable providing Personal Information via the Internet, you may do so by mail at the address provided below. However, we are not responsible for removing your Personal Information from the lists of any third party who has previously been provided your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Security

Papa Gino’s has implemented appropriate and industry-standard data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information, username, password, transaction information and data stored on our Sites. While Papa Gino’s strives to protect your information, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure and, consequently, we cannot guarantee the security of any information, nor should you expect that your Personal Information, searches or other communications with Papa Gino’s will always remain secure. You should be aware that Papa Gino’s has no control over the security of other sites on the Internet that you might visit or interact with even when a link to any such third party site appears on our Sites.

In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your Personal Information, Papa Gino’s will notify you as necessary so you can take appropriate protective steps. Papa Gino’s may notify you under such circumstances using the e-mail address(es) that we have on record for you.

Children

The Sites are general audience websites and do not target or intend to collect Personal Information from children. Papa Gino’s is concerned about the privacy and safety of children when they use the Internet. We will never knowingly request or collect Personal Information online from minors without prior verifiable parental consent.

To use any Sites or Service, you must be the age of legal majority in your place of residence. By using the Sites or any of the Services, you hereby represent that you are at least the age of legal majority in your place of residence or have otherwise provided us with parental consent. All information provided to Papa Gino’s will be treated as if it was provided by an adult, unless we have specific information to the contrary. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will take all reasonable measures to remove it from our systems immediately.

Links to other websites

Papa Gino’s may provide links on the Sites to third party websites that we do not own or control. Papa Gino’s assumes no responsibility for the information practices of websites you are able to access through the Sites. These links to other websites do not imply affiliation or endorsement of a linked site. Any access to and use of such linked websites is not governed by this Privacy Policy but, instead, is governed by the privacy policies of those third party websites. We encourage you to review and understand the terms of use and privacy practices of third party websites before providing any information to or through them.

California residents

If you are a resident of California, in addition to the rights set forth in this Privacy Policy, you have the right to request information from us regarding any disclosure of Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you wish to make such a request, please send an e-mail to Papa Gino’s at DigitalMarketing@papaginos.com.

Do not track

Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. At the present time, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has not yet established universal standards for recognizable DNT signals and therefore, the Papa Gino’s Sites do not recognize DNT.

United States of America

The Sites are maintained in the United States of America. By using the Sites or any of the Services, you authorize the export of Personal Information to the United States of America and its storage and use by Papa Gino’s or its vendors, contractors and partners, anywhere in the world, as specified in this Privacy Policy.

Privacy Policy changes

Papa Gino’s reserves the right, in its discretion, to change, modify, add, or remove portions from this Privacy Policy at any time by posting such changes here. You should review this Privacy Policy regularly for changes, and can easily see if changes have been made by checking the Last Updated date above. However, if at any time in the future we plan to use Personal Information in a way that differs from this Privacy Policy, we will post such changes here and provide you the opportunity to opt-out of such differing uses. Your continued use following the posting of any changes to this Privacy Policy means you accept such changes. If you object to any such modification, your sole recourse is to stop using the Sites and/or the Services.
