We want to make your online experience satisfying and safe. We want to provide you with the means to control your privacy and give you a way to voice questions or concerns you may have.
When you use our website certain information about your online activity is collected. We use this information to determine our website users’ preferences, to design initiatives to meet those preferences, to eliminate online hassles, and to generally make your online T.G.I. Friday’s® experience more satisfying. Very infrequently, we may initiate a program, service or survey that requests your name, birthday, e-mail address, city of residence, zip code, or information about what you like and do not like about T.G.I. Friday’s. We recognize that the loyalty of our customers depends upon our relationships with them and we strongly support the rights of customers to maintain privacy of personal data. Don’t worry; at T.G.I. Friday’s, your personal information is safe. We don’t give, share, sell, lend or let other people take a sneak peek at your information.
Our Commitments to Your Family
Like you, we have children of our own and are concerned about their safety when they use the Internet. We want you and your family to be safe while visiting our website. That is why, consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection act of 1998 (COPPA), we do not offer program participation to minors and will never knowingly request information from children. For more information about protecting the privacy and safety of minors online, we recommend you visit http://www.ftc.gov/privacy/privacyinitiatives/childrens.html.
What Information Do We Collect?
We collect information in several different ways. We collect the domain name of visitors to our web pages, user-specific information on the pages visitors access, and information such as survey information or other information that you provide voluntarily. Like many other commercial websites, our website may employ a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how our site is used. In addition, we may from time to time provide direct links to news sites featuring articles about T.G.I. Friday’s, which would be subject to those sites’ policies.
How the Information Is Used
We use the information that we collect to understand your preferences and history using our website and related services. With this information we make it easier and more rewarding for you to use our website, any related services, and enjoy your guest experience at our restaurants (in the case of voluntary surveys).
Our ability to provide enhanced services may occasionally depend on our ability to develop summary reports for our advertising agents that contain raw numbers or statistics (but never tell them who it was that stated a preference or clicked on an option).
It is our policy to never send messages to website users unless they request that we do so.
Who Has Access to Your Personal Information
The information that you provide is collected by Carlson Restaurants Worldwide, Inc. (CRW), our parent company. In the case of links to our gift card and guest recognition sites, the information you voluntarily provide at those sites will only be shared with those service vendors who help CRW administer those website and the services they provide. In any case, CRW is the lawful “owner” of the information and each of these vendors may use the information only for the purpose of administering the website and its services for CRW, and will take all necessary precautions to protect the information. Ownership of any information you provide us will be held solely by CRW. We will not sell ownership of this data to any other company or organization.
We will not transfer information to competitors. Your information will always be used only to help us ensure that our website and any related services meet your expectations. At T.G.I. Friday’s®, your personal information is safe. We don’t give, share, sell, lend or let other people take a sneak peek at your information.
It is our strict policy not to share your personal information or preferences with any third party, except as is necessary to operate and improve our website, or to provide any service requested by you on our website.
Although unlikely, we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide personally identifiable information to the appropriate governmental authorities. If requested as part of a legal proceeding, we will provide this information upon receipt of the appropriate documentation.
What Kind of Security Procedures Are in Place to Protect the Loss, Misuse or Alteration of Information Under the Company’s Control
We operate secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers. Any particularly sensitive information, such as a customer’s credit card number, is encrypted prior to transmission. To the extent that administration of the program requires us to grant our Service Vendors access to customer information, we insist that they implement similar controls.
