Collection, Use, and Sharing with Service Providers

Truxton’s American Bistro does not sell, rent, trade or license Personal Data about its users or customers for marketing purposes. However, we do provide some of our services through contractual arrangements made with affiliates, service providers, partners and other third parties (“Service Partners”). Our Service Partners include Google, Mailchimp Netmasons, Bonusbox and Aloha. If you order any food, Aloha will receive your name, address and payment information so they may properly process your order. We use Mailchimp to send all of our email communications to you. Netmasons is used to store all of our customer data and Bonusbox is used to manage our Bistro Club. We use Google to monitor our analytics and they will not be receiving any personal information. We and our Service Partners may need to use some personal information in order to perform tasks between our respective sites, or to deliver services to you. Our Service Providors have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose and who perform vital functions as part of our operations. We do not share your Personal Data unless it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities, including providing information or Services to you.

We never collect any types of Sensitive Data from our users.

Use of Cookies

We use cookies and other tracking mechanisms to track information about your use of our Site. We may combine this information with other personal information we collect from you.

Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Site, while others are used to enable a faster check out process or to allow us to track your activities at our Site. There are two types of cookies we use: session and persistent cookies.

  1. 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.
  2. Persistent Cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have closed your browser or turned off your computer. We use persistent cookies to track aggregate and statistical information about user activity.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 Site to, among other things, track the activities of Site visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Site usage. We and our third-party service providers also use clear GIFs in HTML emails to our customers, to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded.

Google Analytics and other Third Party Analytics

We may use third-party Service Providers to monitor and analyze the use of our Site. Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, please visit the Google Privacy & Terms web page. How Google uses data located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/

Security Policy

To protect your personal identifiable information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry standard encryption of data to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed. If you provide us with any Personal Data, it may be stored in perpetuity through Netmasons and Aloha POS Systems databases, unless we receive a request by you to remove such information or you cancel your Bistro Club Membership.

Although we have implemented commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information we collect from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, please be aware that despite our best efforts, no data security measures can guarantee 100% security. You should take steps to protect against unauthorized access to your password, phone, and computer by, among other things, signing off after using a shared computer, choosing a robust password that nobody else knows or can easily guess, and keeping your log-in and password private. We are not responsible for any lost, stolen, or compromised passwords or for any activity on your account via unauthorized password activity.
