By signing up for, using, or continuing to use the Services, you consent to the privacy practices described in this policy.

 

Section 1. Types of Information We Collect

We may ask you to provide information when you register or subscribe for our Services, contact Dave’s Gelato for customer service purposes, or otherwise interact with or use the Services. We may collect certain types of information, including information that can be used to reasonably identify you, such as your name, email address, mailing address, phone number, date of birth, and geographic location (as described below) (“Personal Information”), and information that does not identify you personally. We may collect the following types of information, including Personal Information:

  • Registration and Contact Information that allows you to register for the Services and allows us to communicate with you, such as your name, email address, password, telephone number, or other address at which you receive communications from or on behalf of Dave’s Gelato.

  • Purchase Information about the items you purchase, such as item descriptions and quantities, time of purchase, total purchase cost, and the company and location you purchased the items from. Purchase information also includes any information (including Personal Information) that may be found on a receipt.

  • Transaction Information about how you interact with the Services, such as the offers you view and redeem, other products you purchase; other information about how you use our Services, email, other communications, and applications.

  • Location Information including state/province, city, or zip code, as well as precise location data and associated time of day ("Location Information").

  • Information from Cookies and Similar Technologies. When you use our Services, we and our partners may collect certain information using cookies and similar technologies, such as pixel tags, web beacons, browser analysis tools, and web server logs. Cookies are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Service. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on website pages or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed specific actions. When you access these pages or open email messages, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action to us, or our service providers. These tools allow us to measure the response to our communications and improve our web pages and promotions.

 

We collect many different types of information from cookies and other technologies. For example, we may collect and record information from the devices you use to access our Services, such as your IP address, operating system type or mobile device model, mobile device identifiers, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone of your device. We may also collect information about the website you were visiting before you came to our Services and the website you visit after you leave our Services.


In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is used in non-identifiable ways, without any reference to Personal Information. For example, we use information we collect about users to optimize our Services and understand traffic and usage patterns. In other cases, we associate the information we collect using cookies and related technologies with Personal Information. In that case, this Privacy Policy governs how we use that information. Additionally, if you have visited our mobile website and if the settings on your location-aware device allow us to receive Location Information, we will collect that automatically. If we associate Location Information with other Personal Information, this Privacy Policy governs how we would use that information too.


Please review your web browser’s “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. However, please be aware that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from our Services, you may not be able to utilize the features of our Services to their fullest potential.
