OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY

White Castle Las Vegas (“White Castle Las Vegas” or “we”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Privacy Policy (“Policy”). We have developed this Policy to describe the types of information we collect from visitors to authorized White Castle websites (the “Site“) and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information. This Policy is effective from the time it is posted on the Site, as noted above. To make this Policy easy to find, we make it available on our homepage and on every page through which personally identifiable information may be submitted. Please read this Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, your choice is not to use our Site. By accessing or using this Site, you agree to this Policy. This Policy may change from time to time. Your continued use of this Site after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Policy periodically for updates.

This Policy applies to information we collect:

On the site.

In email, text and other electronic messages between Site visitors and the Site.

Through mobile and desktop applications you download from this Site, which provide dedicated, non-browser-based interaction between you and this Site.

This Policy does not apply to information collected by:

  • Us offline or through other means, including on any other website operated by a third party; or any third party, including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or on the Site.

USE OF OUR SITE CONSTITUTES AGREEMENT TO THE TERMS OF THIS POLICY. DO NOT USE THE SITE IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THE TERMS OF USE, INCLUDING THIS POLICY, THE SITE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, AND ANY SUPPLEMENTAL POLICY OR TERMS. WE MAKE WHAT WE BELIEVE TO BE COMMERCIALLY REASONABLE EFFORTS TO PROVIDE A REASONABLE LEVEL OF SECURITY FOR PERSONAL INFORMATION WE ARE REQUIRED TO PROTECT, BUT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THE SECURITY OF PERSONAL INFORMATION OR OTHER INFORMATION IN ANY FORM.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT ABOUT YOU AND HOW WE COLLECT IT

Information Collected Automatically.

Non-personal information is information that does not personally identify you and can include certain personally identifiable information that has been de-identified; that is, information that has been rendered anonymous. We collect certain non-personal information from you when you access our Site. This information can include:

IP addresses (a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Internet). Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When visitors request pages from our Site, our servers typically log their IP addresses. We collect IP addresses for purposes of system administration, to report non-personal aggregate information to others and to track the use of our Site. IP addresses are considered non-personal information and may also be shared as provided above. It is not our practice to link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable; that is, the visitor’s session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us.

The type of browser you are using (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.).

The third-party website from which your visit originated.

The domain name of your Internet service provider.

The search terms you use on our Site, the specific web pages you visit and the duration of your visits.

We use non-personal information in a variety of ways, including to help analyze site traffic, understand customer needs and trends, carry out targeted promotional activities, store information about your Site use preferences (allowing us to customize our Site according to your interests), to speed up your on-Site searches, to recognize you when you return to our Site and to improve our services. We may use your non-personal information by itself or aggregate it with information we have obtained from others. We may share your non-personally identifying, anonymous information with our affiliated companies and third parties to achieve these objectives and others.

The information you choose to provide us through use of our Site may include both non-personal information and personally identifiable information such as:

We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We urge you to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Site. The information you share in public areas may be viewed by any user of the Site.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure.
