We value our customers and respect their privacy. We collect customer information in an effort to improve your purchasing experience and to communicate with you about our products, services, contests and promotions. We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. As described in this policy, we do, however, share your information with our affiliates and under certain circumstances, with third parties that provide services on our behalf or with whom we have partnered to offer a particular product or service.
This policy describes the personal information we collect about you, why we collect it, how we use it and when we share it with third parties. Our policy also describes the choices you can make about how we collect and use your information.
b. Information Collection and Use
We collect information, such as name, e-mail and postal addresses, phone and credit card information from you when you visit our website, place an order online, register your information with us online, or participate in a contest, promotion or survey. Essenslowfastfood.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
c. Registration and Ordering
In order to use this website, a user must complete the registration form. By becoming a member, the customer is entitled to a number of benefits. During registration a user is required to give their contact information, which is used to contact the user about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest.
Essenslowfastfood.com also requests information from the user on our order form. When you place an order from us, we use your personal information to process your order, send you e-mails to confirm your order or to contact you via phone, postal mail or e-mail if we have other questions regarding your order. A user must provide contact information and financial information. This information is used both for billing purposes and to fill the user's order.
d. Cookies and Log Files
From time to time we might share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers. This is not linked by any way to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We use a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. This company does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purpose.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Web site.
f. Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. When we offer contests and promotions, with or without a marketing partner, you may be required to provide certain personal information in order to participate. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. In these cases, we will give you the choice not to receive e-mail messages or other communications from us regarding our products, services, contests, and promotions. However, Essenslowfastfood.com may still need to contact you to notify winners and to fulfill promotional obligations.
In addition, we may use information about you and your product interests and purchases from us to help us improve our site design and your online and in-store purchasing experiences. We may contact you, subject to the choices you have made, via e-mail, postal mail, or telephone, to conduct market research and learn more about how we can improve our product offerings.
This Web site takes every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). While on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing.'
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users' information is protected in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees must use password-protected screen-savers when they leave their desk. When they return, they must re-enter their password to re-gain access to your information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter, as well as any time new policies are added, our employees are notified and/or reminded about the importance we place on privacy, and what they can do to ensure our customers' information is protected. Finally, the servers where we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment, behind a locked cage.
We do not store customer credit card numbers in our servers nor can any of our employees access this information.
h. Special Offers
Established members will occasionally receive information on special offers and daily specials. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to decline these types of communications.
If you no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each newsletter or communication or by emailing us in our contact form here.
You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party.
i. Correction/Updating Personal Information
You can review, change or delete certain personal information (e-mail, password, name, address, phone number and credit card information) related to your use of our online sites. If any of a user's personally identifiable information changes or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us. This can be done by accessing the member information page "my account" by clicking here or by emailing our Customer Support at info@Essenslowfastfood.com.
j. Notification of Changes
If our information practices change in the future, we will post an updated policy on our website. You can tell if the policy has changed by checking the revision date that appears at the end of this policy. You may exercise your choices about how we collect and use your information at any time.
