Information We Share with Others and Your Privacy Rights

Cookies and Pixel Tags

A cookie is a small data file that websites often store on your computer’s hard drive when you visit their sites. A cookie may contain information, such as a unique user ID that websites use to track the pages you’ve visited on their site. We use cookies but do not store personally identifiable information in your cookie. We use cookies in order to improve your online experience. For example, we use cookies to:

Security

Protecting your personal information is important to us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect any online purchases you may make on our site. Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don’t permit communication through secure servers. If your browser or firewall doesn’t support SSL, you will not be able to connect to the server, which means you won’t be able to mistakenly place an order through an unsecured connection.

Identity thieves sometimes send fraudulent email messages to trick customers into divulging personal or financial information (a practice known as “phishing”). Many of these emails feature unauthorized uses of company logos and language. Some of these emails even go as far as showing exact copies of company website pages. These emails and websites attempt to trick people into providing personal information such as: log-on IDs, passwords, credit card numbers, bank account information, Social Security Numbers, and other sensitive information. RESTAURANT TRAVELER DOES NOT REQUEST PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM CUSTOMERS VIA EMAIL. PLEASE NOTE THAT EMAIL IS NOT ENCRYPTED AND IS NOT CONSIDERED A SECURE MEANS OF TRANSMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION. If you have received or entered personal information in response to a suspicious email, pop-up or phony website claiming to be affiliated with Restaurant Traveler or its affiliates, please call us at 713.364.3107 immediately.
