Privacy Policy

Last Updated: May 24, 2014

We value the trust you place in Papa Gino’s, Inc. (“Papa Gino’s”) and we want you to be aware of the safeguards we have in place to respect your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes what information Papa Gino's collects, how and why we collect it and how we strive to protect it.

This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by Papa Gino’s when you use the Site or any of the Services and does not apply to information that Papa Gino’s receives or obtains offline, or to content, business information, ideas, concepts or inventions that you send to Papa Gino’s. For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, “you” or “your” shall refer to you as a User of the Site. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Privacy Policy will have the meanings ascribed to them in the Terms of Use, available here (the “Terms of Use”).


If you prefer that we not collect any personal information from you, please do not provide us with any such information. When you submit your personal information and other information to us, you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of such information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

How we collect information

Papa Gino’s collects information from you in the following ways:

  • Papa Gino’s collects information that you voluntarily provide when you use certain aspects of the Site or the Services. Such information may include, without limitation, your name, phone number and/or e-mail.

  • When you use the Site or the Services, technological tools, including, without limitation, “cookies,” collect certain information, as explained in the following section.

What information we collect

Papa Gino’s gathers Personal Information from you in order to provide superior service, customize our communications to you and administer our business. “Personal Information” is information that can personally identify you.

Personal Information. You may browse our Site without registering and providing Personal Information. If you choose, however, to place an order, apply for a job, refer a potential employee or submit a site for a potential restaurant to us online, we request certain Personal Information such as your name, residential and email addresses, and phone number. If you are interested in a franchise and would like to complete a franchise application online, we request not only your name, residential and email addresses and phone number but also your birthdate, social security number, immigration status, criminal history, and information regarding your assets and liabilities. We retain the Personal Information you submit for no more than ninety (90) days, at which time we will delete your Personal Information.

Providing your Personal Information to us is your choice. If you choose not to provide us with certain Personal Information, you may not be able to take advantage of all of the features of the Site (including, without limitation, the Services).

Non-personal Information. When you visit the Site, we may automatically monitor your activity and collect general non-personal information, such as browser information, operating system information, search terms used to locate the Site, IP address, the date, time and length of stay, specific web pages accessed by you during your visit to the Site, the website that you go to when you leave the Site and any downloading you performed while on the Site. This information does not identify you personally. [We may combine such general information with Personal Information and may use and disclose the combined information in a de-identified aggregated manner, as described in this Privacy Policy.]

E-mail. In addition, when you send an email to us, we may retain your email address and the contents of the email you send.

Cookies and Tracking Devices. When ordering online or viewing the Site, we store some information on your computer to, among other things, track what you order. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file. With most Internet browsers, you can erase the type of cookies we use from your computer hard drive, block our cookies, or receive a warning before our cookie is stored. However, please note that while you may still use the Site and the Services, your actions in connection with such functions will interfere with the Site and the Services functioning properly.

How we use the information we collect

Except as specified in this Privacy Policy, Papa Gino’s does not rent, sell, trade or disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your consent. We use the information you provide to us only for the purpose for which it is requested. For example, when you place an order online, the information you provide will be used only to fill, bill and deliver your order to you at the address specified and, if necessary, to contact you about your order. The Personal Information you provide regarding your employment and your financial background, we use to evaluate your candidacy as either a potential employee or potential franchisee, depending upon the application you have submitted. Except as specified in this Privacy Policy, we do not sell or divulge your personal information to any third party, unless of course the law requires us to do so or you have otherwise consented to such disclosure. We have established internal procedures to guarantee and ensure that the information you provide to us is used only for these purposes.

In addition, Papa Gino’s may use your Personal Information to:

  • customize, analyze, adjust and improve the Site and the Services to better meet your needs;

  • respond to your inquiries;

  • enforce Papa Gino’s user policies and other agreements with you;

  • provide you with important administrative information regarding the Site and the Services, such as changes to this Privacy Policy, the Terms of Use or our other policies, and to, more generally, facilitate communication between Papa Gino’s and you; and

  • prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities.

[In addition, Papa Gino’s may aggregate de-identified User data and information collected by Papa Gino’s in connection with your use of the Site or the Services, with non-identifiable anonymous data from other users and customers to create anonymous aggregated data that does not identify you (“Aggregated Data”). Papa Gino’s shall solely own all rights in and to any Aggregated Data, and has the irrevocable right to maintain, store, use, disclose or sell such Aggregated Data. Papa Gino’s may use Aggregated Data for its internal purposes, including, without limitation, to perform statistical analyses, and for Papa Gino’s other legitimate business purposes.]

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. 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 Site, or in order to protect or defend Papa Gino’s rights or property, even without a subpoena, warrant or other court order.

  • We may grant access to certain information (including Personal Information), subject to confidentiality restrictions, in connection with a sale, merger, liquidation, dissolution or insolvency proceeding involving Papa Gino’s or its assets.

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 Site 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 [email protected] 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 Site 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 [email protected]. If you do not feel comfortable providing Personal Information via the Internet, you may do so by mail. 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.


Papa Gino’s has implemented physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information from unauthorized access and use. 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 Site.

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.


This Site is a general audience site and does 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 Site or Service, you must be the age of legal majority in your place of residence. By using the Site 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. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, if we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will remove it from our systems immediately.

Papa Gino’s may provide links on the Site 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 Site. 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.
