MenuClub Privacy Statement
MenuClub, Inc. (“MenuClub”) takes the privacy and security of our clients and their customers very seriously. MenuClub provides this Internet Privacy Statement because our clients and their customers have a right to know what information we collect, how it is used, and how it is protected.

During registration, you are required to give contact information (such as first and last name, month and day of birth, and email address). The client provides this registration information to us. MenuClub collects personally identifiable information from our users during the initial signup process as well as during surveys or preference requests. We use this information to contact you with offers, newsletters and special promotions which you have expressed interest in receiving.
You may also be given the opportunity to provide your cell phone number during the sign-up process or through a separate email from a MenuClub client. By providing your cell phone number, you are agreeing to receive text (SMS) messages on your cell phone. You have the option to provide demographic information (such as gender and zip code) to us; we encourage you to submit this information so we can provide you a more personalized experience. If you elect not to provide such demographic information, you may still participate in the client’s program offerings.
You may also be given the opportunity to provide a rating for a MenuClub client. By providing a rating comment and leaving the "Comment Public" box checked you are agreeing to the use of your first and last name and associated comment described in Uses of Customer Information below.
Communications may include offers, newsletters, updates, special promotions, surveys and unsubscribe confirmations.

To protect your privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
Social Media Sites
Surveys or Contests
From time to time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in web-based contests or surveys. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name address and phone number(s)), demographic information (such as zip code) and personal preference information (such as your opinions). This information is used by our clients to better understand their customers.
MenuClub may use a third-party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company is prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with any third party except with the client unless we give you prior notice and you elect to permit the provision of that information to the third party.
Forward to a Friend
If you choose to use our referral service to tell a friend about an email club to which you subscribe, we will ask you for your friend’s name and email address. This process will automatically send your friend a one-time email inviting him or her to join the client email list. MenuClub stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program, after which the names collected are removed from the database.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
That’s Biz only shares your data with the client from which you have requested to receive offers. We provide the client with your personally identifiable data and we share reports about your statistics and information about your preferences. While the client retains ownership of your data, it has agreed that MenuClub retains management during the term of their Agreement and that it will not rent, sell or otherwise provide to third parties.
If MenuClub merges or is combined with any other organization, or if MenuClub transfers all or substantially all of its assets or operations to another organization, it may disclose information it collects from you to the other organization so that the other organization can continue to provide services to you. The other organization will be bound by this policy.
We use third parties to provide data entry for our client list member enrollment. When you sign up for an email club, we will share your enrollment information with our data entry company so that the third party can provide the service. Such third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
Upon request from a MenuClub client, MenuClub may use a third party vendor to fulfill promotions on behalf of MenuClub and the client. Any third party vendor to MenuClub is contractually prohibited from using your information for any other purpose.
We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to (a) protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Company; (b) protect and defend MenuClub’s rights or property or the users our services, and (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of our services or the public.

We will endeavor to comply with your request as soon as reasonably possible.

Finally, we are not responsible for informing third parties (including without limitation our third party service providers or strategic partners) with whom we have already shared your personally identifiable information of any changes requested pursuant to this section, or for removing information from or causing information to be removed from the databases or records of such entities.
Like most standard website servers, we log IP addresses (a unique number assigned to every computer on the Internet) in order to improve security, analyze trends and administer the Sites. We may track your movement within the Sites, the pages from which you were referred, access times and browser types. This information may include the browser you are using, the internet address from which you linked to our Sites, the operating system of your computer, the unique IP address of the computer you used to access our Sites, and usage and browsing habits. We use this information in the aggregate to gauge the effectiveness of our Sites, track information for statistical purposes, help diagnose and troubleshoot server malfunctions, analyze trends, track user movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information. We may also use individual information we collect through web logs to send you targeted offers and other communications.
Web Beacons - Pixels
Our web pages and emails contain "web beacons." Web beacons allow us to count users that have visited a web page or opened an email that contains a web beacon and collect other types of aggregate information. Using this information, we are able to measure the effectiveness of our advertising and how visitors use our Sites. This allows us to learn what pages are most attractive to our visitors, which parts of our Sites are the most interesting and what kind of offers our registered users like to see. Some of the web beacons that are in place on our Sites are used only by us, and other web beacons are from our service providers who use this data to assist us in analyzing how our Sites are used.
We use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. If you would like to opt-out of these emails, please see “Opt-out/Unsubscribe”.
California Business & Professions Code 22575(b) provides that California residents are entitled to know how Bojangles’ responds to “Do Not Track” browser settings.

Cookies are information files that your web browser places on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website.

If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use some features of MenuClub’s website and services that depend on cookies.
Links to Other Sites
Emails that we send on a client’s behalf may contain links to other sites that are not owned or controlled by MenuClub. Please be aware that MenuClub is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites and do not exercise authority over such web sites. MenuClub therefore assumes no responsibility for the privacy and data collection policies and procedures of such linked web sites, nor for the content or reliability of such web sites. If you choose to access a third party web site, you do so at your own risk.
Access to Personally Identifiable Information
MenuClub has put in place certain technological and procedural security functions in order to protect the personal information it collects, uses or transfers from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. MenuClub uses firewalls to help prevent outside parties from accessing our database server through the Internet, and physical access to the database server is restricted to authorized individuals.
When transferring personally identifiable information to and from third parties MenuClub uses SSL & SFTP (Secure FTP) (which includes MD5 and SHA-1 encryption), as required for Email Sender and Provider Coalition (ESPC) membership. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information during transmission, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe (including your account password), log out of your account after use, and close your web browser.
