1. What is Personal Data? What we call “Personal Data” in this Privacy Policy is any information that can be used to identify a specific individual, such as first and last name, screen name, email address, postal address, telephone number, date of birth, details about your telephone device (e.g. mobile phone or PDA) and your telephone service provider and information related to providing products and services.

 

2.A. What Personal Data will Nando’s collect about me? When you visit one of our websites, our web server automatically records the name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider), your IP (internet protocol) address, the website from which you visit us, the pages on our sites you visit and in what sequence, and the date and length of your visit. This information may not identify you, but we treat it as Personal Data anyway.

We also collect personal identifiable information when you provide it, for example if you engage in any online contests, registrations, competitions, message boards, surveys, polls, games, SMS, MMS and other mobile services.  We may also collect other information, including your interests, preferences, purchasing behaviour, transactional information, geographical location and demographics (e.g., age, gender, and income information)  We may on occasion combine Personal Data we receive online with other  records (such as those from telephone and direct purchases) to develop a customer profile relating to you.

 

2.B.  How and when do you obtain my consent? Nando’s collects Personal Data about you only when you voluntarily provide it.  Typically, we will seek consent for the use or disclosure of your Personal Data at the time of collection.  The form of consent that we seek, including whether it is express or implied, will largely depend on the sensitivity of the Personal Data and the reasonable expectations of a person in the circumstances.

We will not, as a condition of the supply of a product or service, require you to consent to the collection, use or disclosure of information beyond that required to fulfill the explicitly specified and legitimate purposes for which the information is being provided.

You may withdraw consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice.  To withdraw consent, please contact us or visit www.nandos.ca/contact .We will inform you of the implications of withdrawing consent.

 

3. What is Nando's cookies policy? We, our third party service providers and our partners may send "cookies" to your computer or use similar technologies to enhance your online experience at our websites and across the Internet. "Cookies" are files that can identify you as a unique customer and store your personal preferences as product preferences to tell us which site pages you have visited and in what order. We use cookies and other technical information to personalize your visit to the website, to analyze traffic on the website and to track user trends, patterns and selections for authorized download and for technical reasons connected with your use of our site. Cookies can either be permanent (i.e., they remain on your computer until you delete them) or temporary (i.e. they last only until you close your browser).

 We may also use "web beacons" that monitor your use of our sites. Web beacons (or web bugs) are strings of code that provide a method for delivering a graphic image on a web page for the purpose of transferring data, such as the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the web beacon appears, the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of the page on which the web beacons appears, the time the page containing the web beacon was viewed, the types of browser that fetched the web beacon and the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server. When corresponding with you via HTML capable e-mail, web beacons let us know whether you received and opened our email. On their own, cookies or web beacons do not contain or reveal any Personal Data.  However, if you choose to provide us with Personal Data, it can be linked to the anonymous data stored in the cookies and/or web beacons.

Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies. However, if you prefer, you may adjust your browser to reject cookies from us or from any other website. Additionally, by setting your web browser to display HTML emails as text only, you may be able to prevent the use of some web beacons.

Users should consult the other sites' privacy policies on such third party sites before submitting any Personal Data, as we are not responsible for and have no control over Personal Data that is submitted to, or collected by, these third-party sites.

For the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, Nando’s or a third-party service provider may process and store your Personal Data outside of the province in which you reside and/or outside of Canada. In particular, your Personal Data may be transferred to and processed in the United Kingdom where the Nando’s central database is operated.

13. What if I am under the age of 14? It is important to us that children can enjoy our sites in a responsible fashion. We therefore require children under fourteen (14) years old to consult with their parents before providing Personal Data. We also encourage parents to supervise their children's online activities by, for example, adopting parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a child-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address, and other Personal Data without parental permission. Your child's privacy is important to us. We are committed to safeguarding children's Personal Data collected online, and to helping parents and their children learn how to exercise control over Personal Data while exploring the Internet. To this end, we take additional measures to protect the privacy of our younger users. Users of this site may participate in many activities without providing any Personal Data. However, if a user wants to participate in certain interactive features on our sites, we ask the user to provide us with certain information, such as the user's email address and age. When the user who registers indicates that he or she is under fourteen (14) years old, we will take one of four steps: (1) collect no information from that user; (2) require the user to provide a parent's verifiable consent; (3) collect only the user's email address to respond to the user's specific request; or (4) collect the email address of the user's parent in addition to the user's email address to seek the parent's verifiable consent or to notify them of their child's online activities. We also use the email addresses of parents to enable them to unsubscribe their child from a newsletter or other similar activity. We do not share Personal Data regarding users under the age of fourteen (14) with outside third parties not bound by this Privacy Policy without prior parental consent. Even with the parents' consent, if a user is under the age of fourteen (14), we will not condition his/her participation in an online activity on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. While we want children to enjoy our websites, please note that, unless stated otherwise on this site, SMS, MMS and other mobile services are only available to users who are at least fourteen (14) years of age. We do not encourage users under the age of fourteen (14) to provide Personal Data to us (such as their mobile phone or PDA contact details) in order to subscribe to such services. However, if you are a parent and would like to review any Personal Data that we have collected online from your child, have this information deleted, and/or request that there be no further collection or use of your child's Personal Data or if you have any questions about our Privacy Policy or practices, you may contact us through the contact us forms on the website (www.nandos.ca/contact ) or write to Nando’s Central Support (West), 130-13931 Sparwood Pl, Richmond, British Columbia V6V 1X2.

 

15. Changes to this Privacy Policy: From time to time, we may revise this Privacy Policy to reflect company initiatives, changes in the law or technology or changes in our practices regarding the collection and use of Personal Data. If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, the changes will be posted on this site so that you are always informed of the latest version. The date of the most recent revisions will appear at the top of this page. We will not use or disclose Personal Data provided to us pursuant to this Privacy Policy in ways other than the ones described above, without informing you and providing you with the opportunity to consent to such modified conditions concerning the use and disclosure of your Personal Data.

 

16. How can I contact Nando’s? If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy please feel free to contact us via the contact us forms on our website (www.nandos.ca/contact) or write to Nando’s Central Support (West), 130-13931 Sparwood Pl, Richmond, British Columbia V6V 1X2.  If any provision of this Privacy Policy is judged to be illegal, void or unenforceable due to applicable law [or by order of a court of competent jurisdiction] it shall be deemed deleted and the continuation in full force and effect of the remainder of the provisions will not be prejudiced unless a court of competent jurisdiction determines that the substantive purpose of this Privacy Policy is then frustrated, in which case you may contact Nando’s at the above address in order to opt-out of the Privacy Policy.
