WE RESPECT THE PRIVACY OF EVERY INDIVIDUAL WHO VISITS THIS SITE
WHO IS COLLECTING YOUR INFORMATION
The Website is owned and operated by Another Broken Egg of America, Inc. ("ABEA", “we”, “us” or “our”). This Policy applies only to the Website. ABEA is the sole owner of the information collected on the Website.
The Website contains links to other sites whose privacy policies may differ from those of ABEA which we recommend you carefully review and consider. We cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of other websites even if you access them using links from our Website.
WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Personal Information from the Website is gathered in two ways: (1) indirectly, i.e., certain Website information about you, such as domain name, IP address, browser type and page views, and geolocation which is collected through our Website's technology to provide certain functionality to you, to remember you when you return, to customize our Website to your preferences and manage content, and compile statistics about Website usage; and (2) directly, when (a) you voluntarily submit Personal Information such as, first and last names, addresses, email address(es), phone numbers, birthdate, marital status, number of children and their ages, social network and ‘handle’ data, preference information, or survey answers/opinions, in connection with purchases on the Ecommerce portion of the Website, various marketing and promotional activities, surveys or contests conducted on the Website; (b) when you register to become a user of the Website we will collect the password and security question/answer; and (c) when you submit resumes to the third party applicant tracking system described below and respond to job postings through the Website. When we collect this type of information, we will notify you as to why we are asking for information and how this information will be used either in this Policy or separately at the point at which the information is collected if not described in this Policy.
The Website may include job postings from time to time for various ABEA locations or our corporate offices.
You may be given the opportunity to apply for job openings online via a third party service provider under contract with one of our independent franchisees. In some cases, a downloadable PDF will be provided that can be submitted directly to your local cafe.
If submitted through an online system, your resume or CV and other Personal Information (collectively, “Job Posting Information”) will be made available to the owner, operator or manager of the ABEA location or ABEA office to which you are applying (which could be a different company from ABEA).
In some cases, the Website might list the email address of a contact person at the applicable hiring company. If that hiring company is ABEA or an ABEA affiliate, any Job Posting Information sent to that email address will be maintained in accordance with this Policy. If that email address is for an independent entity that owns, manages or operates that ABEA location, then it will be maintained in accordance with their information practices. All such Job Posting Information may be used by the applicable hiring company for the purpose of assessing your suitability for current and future job vacancies and to pursue your recruiting process. ABEA MAKES NO REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES REGARDING THEIR INFORMATION SECURITY OR PRIVACY PRACTICES. PLEASE NOTE THAT ABEA DISCLAIMS ANY AND ALL RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY RELATING TO USE OF YOUR JOB POSTING OR OTHER PERSONAL INFORMATION (INCLUDING RESUMES AND CVS) BY ANY INDEPENDENT OWNER, MANAGER OR OPERATOR OF AN ABEA LOCATION.
If at any time you want your Personal Information, resume or CV to be deleted, you simply need to notify the hiring ABEA operator or management company in which you applied.
RIGHT NOT TO PROVIDE INFORMATION
In certain jurisdictions, you may have the right not to provide Personal Information. However, if you elect not to provide such information, you may not be able to utilize certain services on the Website.
Some information that we collect about you is collected passively through the use of "cookies." Cookies are small files of information, which save and retrieve information about your visit to the Website - for example, how you entered and navigated our Website, and what information was of interest to you. We use this information to remember you when you return and to customize our Website to your preferences.
There are two types of cookies: session and persistent cookies. • Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged into the Site. This allows us to process your online transactions and requests and verify your identity, after you have logged in, as you move through our Site. • Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer.
Disabling Cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your computer from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to our Site who disable cookies will be able to browse certain areas of the Site, but some features may not function.
DO NOT TRACK SIGNALS
Currently, our systems do not recognize browser “do-not-track” requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in the Cookies section (e.g., by disabling cookies). Please note that ABEA does not collect, and is not aware of third parties that collect, from users of the Website personal information about users’ online activities across third party websites.
CLEAR GIFS, PIXEL TAGS AND OTHER TECHNOLOGIES
Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons, web bugs or pixel tags), in connection with our Website to, among other things, track the activities of Website visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Website usage. We and our third party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers, to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.
