|A&W® Restaurants is committed to your privacy|
We know how important your privacy is to you and we're committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors and clients.
You may be asked to provide information to us through one or more services we provide through our web site, embed within messages to you, within social media, or otherwise. This information may include personally identifiable information, such as, for example, your name, birth date, email address, address, and telephone number.
We may collect information provided by you and your computer through use of our services, including this web site, embedded within messages to you, within social media, and otherwise. This information may include the following types of information:
In order to determine a user’s ability to receive HTML email in addition to whether or not an email has been opened, A&W Restaurants, Inc. includes a “web beacon” in a majority of the HTML email messages we send. A web beacon (actually a small .gif image) is activated when an HTML email is opened via a request for the image on our servers. This capability helps A&W Restaurants, Inc. send email in a format users can read and enables A&W Restaurants, Inc. and our clients that use the functionality, to track the aggregate number of emails opened. The web beacon does not collect any personally identifiable information. Users that do not want to receive email messages with web beacons can choose to receive their emails in text (non-HTML) format. We also use, and provide our clients with, the capability to track when a URL has been clicked inside of an email message sent by our system. We use this functionality to track which links were clicked and in what quantity, as well as the aggregate number of links clicked. This click tracking functionality does not collect any personally identifiable information.
At times we will use your HTTP header information to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our web site. We also may track browser types to help us understand our visitors’ needs related to our web site design. There is an optional section of our web site where input forms require your name, phone number, company, birth date and e-mail address. This form provides the ability to opt-in to receiving future emails of any sort from A&W Restaurants, Inc. If you opt-in to receiving email communications from us, then we may send information to you on our products or services. This information will not be used for any other purpose. We do, however, 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. You may review and change your information with us at any time by clicking on the “modify profile” link on the site or similar found at the bottom of emails sent via our system, or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
