PIEOLOGY PRIVACY POLICY

Last Updated: November 13th, 2018

The Little Brown Box Pizza, LLC., dba Pieology has developed this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, use and share personal information about you and how you can exercise your privacy rights. This Privacy Policy covers the personal information we collect through our mobile application “Pie Life Rewards” loyalty program (“App”) and website at www.pieology.com (“Site”) and other apps or sites that link to this Privacy Policy and in the usual course of business, such as events, sales and/or marketing activities and when otherwise providing our services (collectively, the “Services”).

We recommend that you read this Privacy Policy in full to ensure you are fully informed.

1.        INFORMATION WE COLLECT


1.1        Information We Collect Directly.


You can browse our App, Site or use our Services without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information. You may choose to provide additional information when you communicate with us, download our App, create an account, join our loyalty program or otherwise interact with us. In most cases the provision of information by you is entirely voluntary. However, if you fail to provide the information, we may not be able to provide you with a Service or information you have requested. The personal information you provide may include:

Contact Information:  When signing up to receive information from us or become a member of our loyalty program you may provide your contact information, including your location, DOB, postal address, phone number and email address.

Financial Information: If you make a purchase from us you must provide financial information in order to make the purchase and for us to fulfill your order. Your financial information is provided directly to our third-party payment processor who may retain your financial information on our behalf.

Transaction Information:  We will maintain a record of your purchases, transactional information, your Services history and usage. We may also retain your communications with us and our responses.

Job Applicants and Franchisee Applicants: When applying for a job opening or to be a franchisee, you may elect to send us your resume or other relevant information online.

1.2        Information We Collect Automatically.


When you access our App or Site or use our Services, we (or our third-party analytics providers) may collect information about your device and use of the Services. We may use a variety of technologies (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”) to collect some of this information. Our use of Tracking Technologies is discussed further below and in more detail in Tracking Technologies and Analytics Services Section below. We may use Tracking Technologies to automatically collect the following information:

Device Information.  We may collect certain information about the device you use to access the Services, including but not limited to IP address, unique device identifiers, browser types and browser language.

User History.  We may log certain usage information about your use of the Services, which may include a history of the pages you view. If you download and use our App on your device, the log files will automatically be collected by the application and sent to our servers when your device syncs up for the latest content available.

Mobile/Location Information.  We may collect additional information from you if you access the Site through a mobile device, for example your unique device identifier, device’s operating system, mobile carrier, or location when you opt in for us to do so. If you download our App there is search functionality that gathers information about visitors who are in or near our restaurants and when you opt in, allows us to collect information about your precise location (“geo-location”). If you agree to have your geo-location collected, we may use and retain that precise location data to provide you with information about restaurants in your area or carry out marketing and other activities contemplated by our App and this policy. However, the degree to which your location can be identified depends on the device you are using (e.g., laptop, smartphone, tablet) and how you are connected to the internet (e.g., via cable broadband connection, Wi-Fi, etc.). If you enable location services for the Services, we may collect regional location data periodically as you use or leave open the Services. We may also collect your location information from your IP address or zip code.

We may also use location data internally or in conjunction with our third-party service providers to customize your experience and provide offers that may be relevant to you. Depending on the platform you use to access the Services (e.g., Apple™ iOS, Google™ Android, Windows, etc.) you may be able to control from within the settings on your wireless device whether location data is collected.

 

1.3        Information We Collect from Third Party Sources.


Third Party Sources.  From time to time we may obtain personal information about you from third party sources, such as public databases or social networking services and third-party service providers. We use this information, alone or in combination with other information (including personal information) we collect, to enhance our ability to enhance the Services we provide to you.

Social Networking Accounts.  In addition, when you choose to access any of our social networking accounts or use one of our hashtags, or otherwise engage with the Services through third party social media platforms, you may be allowing us ongoing access to certain information stored on those platforms. In addition, as you interact with the Services, you may also be providing information about your activities to the third party social networking platforms, as applicable. You should make sure that you are comfortable with the information such social networking services may make available to us by visiting the applicable platforms’ privacy policies and/or modifying your privacy settings directly with those platforms.
