We make sure to use PCI DSS compliant third parties when processing your credit cards information.
Unfortunately, we can never promise that the Internet will be 100% secure. Please do not share your credentials across your organization or leave it on a post it for everyone to see!
We only allow our employees to see your personal information on a need to know basis. Our employees handling personal information are all subject to confidential agreements.

If you click on these links, you are leaving our website and the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information will be subject to these third-parties’ privacy practices. You can also be redirected to third parties’ website to acquire tickets for an event, or to make a reservation to a restaurant, such as through Open Table. When this happens, you are also subject to their privacy practices.
It’s possible that we may have to share your personal information to comply with a court order. When we receive such requests, we do all necessary verifications to ensure that they are lawful and if possible, we inform you of this request prior to share your personal information.

Additionally, in some cases, your ability to access or control your personal information will be limited, as required or permitted under the applicable laws. If your request is denied, we will notify you in writing, with the motives for our refusal and information on how to appeal of our decision.

When you browse our website, different types of cookies are set on your hard disk or your device’s storage space. Cookies can be installed by us or can be installed by third-parties.
We use different categories of cookies, which we classified using the standard from the International Chamber of Commerce:
We use both session cookies and persistent cookies.
Let’s be clear… We do not allow any add partners to collect your personal data for their own purposes directly on our website. We do not sell your personal data to anyone.
We may display interest-based ads to you when you are using Facebook through a tool offered by Facebook called the Custom Audience Tool. This tool allows us to personalize our ads based on your shopping experience with us. We do not share any of your personal information, including your shopping history, with Facebook. The tool lets us convert your email address to a unique number that Facebook uses to match to unique numbers it generates from email addresses of its users. We work with Facebook through Real-Time-Bidding (“RTB”), which means that we compete with other advertisers to offer you our advertisings based on your interests.
We also use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting to conduct some analytics on our website performance; but don’t worry, we can’t track you individually. This service only gives us an idea of the overall traffic on our different pages. Google Analytics does this by installing a tracking code on your device, and collecting data on the number of times a user has visited the website, as well as dates for the first and last visits, including the exact time of the visit, and from where you arrived on our website, including the search terms that were leverage or the links that were clicked. This is useful to understand which products and features on our website you like… and those that you don’t!

Legislation in California provides that California residents be entitled to know how we respond to “Do Not Track” browser settings. If activated by you, this setting sends a special signal to the websites you encounter while web browsing indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. We do not respond to Do Not Track signals at this time. If we do so in the future, we will describe how so in this policy.
