A Special Note on Loyalty Programs
From time to time, we may offer financial incentives or “price or service differences” in exchange for your personal information to the extent that doing so is reasonably related to the value of the personal information that we collect in a manner consistent with the non-discrimination requirements of the CCPA. Specifically, in order to participate in certain of our loyalty or rewards program(s) (e.g., through our Ultimate kiosks), you may be asked to provide personal information in exchange for cash, reward points, or other financial incentive, or price or service difference, the amount or nature of which will be specified in each instance at the time the personal information is to be submitted. You can opt into the financial incentive or price or service difference by submitting your personal information. If you wish to opt-out of the financial incentive or price or service difference, do not submit your personal information or, if you previously submitted your personal information to an ongoing loyalty or rewards program, please email Privacy@persianrestaurant.net to opt-out with the subject line “Loyalty Opt-Out.”
Each financial incentive or price or service difference related to submission and use of personal information is based upon our reasonable but sole determination of the estimated value of such information, which takes into consideration, without limitation, estimates regarding the anticipated revenue generated from such information, the anticipated expenses which might be incurred in the collection, storage, and use of such information in the operation of our business, and other relevant factors related to the estimated value of such information to our business, as permitted under the CCPA.
Your California Privacy Rights
As a California resident, you may be able to exercise the following rights (collectively, the “California Privacy Rights”) in relation to the personal information about you that we have collected (subject to certain limitations at law):
|Right to Know||You have the right to request any or all of the following information relating to your personal information we have collected and disclosed in the last 12 months, upon verification of your identity: |
|Right to Delete||You have the right to request the deletion of personal information we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.|
|Right to Opt-out||You have the right to direct us not to sell (as that term is defined by the CCPA) personal information we have collected about you to third parties now or in the future.|
|Right to Non-Discrimination||If you choose to exercise your rights, we will not charge you different prices or provide different quality of services unless those differences are related to your personal information. That is, if the exercise of these rights limits our ability to process personal information (such as in the case of a deletion request), we may no longer be able to provide you our products and Services or engage with you in the same manner.|
|“Shine the Light”||California residents that have an established business relationship with us have the right to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the third parties to whom we have disclosed their personal information (if any) for such third party’s direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of personal information disclosed to those third parties under California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civ. Code § 1798.83).|
