We may share your information, including your Personal Information, with our affiliates and other third parties
performing services for us, such as payment processors, food delivery services, or companies with whom we have
marketing or other relationships. If you are a California resident, you have the right to request additional
information regarding the “sale” of your information. Please see the Section entitled “Your California Privacy
Rights” below about these rights.

In addition, to the extent permitted by law and any applicable state Code of Professional Conduct, certain
nonpublic information about you may be disclosed in the following situations:

  • To comply with a validly issued and enforceable subpoena or summons.
  • In the course of a review of our company’s practices under the authorization of a state or national licensing
    board, or as necessary to properly respond to an inquiry or complaint from such a licensing board of organization.

    take appropriate precautions (for example, through a written confidentiality agreement) so the prospective
    purchaser or merger partner does not disclose information obtained in the course of the review.
  • As a part of any actual or threatened legal proceedings or alternative dispute resolution proceedings either
    initiated by or against us, provided we disclose only the information necessary to file, pursue, or defend against
    the lawsuit and take reasonable precautions to ensure that the information disclosed does not become a matter of
    public record.
  • To provide information to affiliates of the company and nonaffiliated third parties who perform services or

    other party which prohibits them from disclosing or using the information other than for the purposes for which it
    was disclosed. Examples of such disclosures include using a payment processor, reservations maker, merchandise
    store, customer service provider, email marketing provider, or food delivery service.

We may aggregate, de-identify, and/or anonymize any information collected through the Site or Goods and Services

Finally, we may share the information we have collected about you, including Personal Information, as disclosed at
the time you provide your information and as otherwise described in this Privacy Policy.

Ads and Information About You

You may see certain ads on our Site because we participate in advertising networks administered by third parties.
These networks track your online activities over time and across third party websites and online services by
collecting information through automated means, including through the use of the Tracking Technologies described
above, and they use this information to show you advertisements that are tailored to your individual interests. The
information they collect includes information about your visits to our Site, such as the pages you have viewed. This
collection and ad targeting takes place both on our Site and on third-party websites that participate in the ad
network. This process also helps us track the effectiveness of our communications and marketing efforts.

If you would prefer that we not share your name and mailing address with third parties (other than with our affiliates) to receive promotional offers, you have the option to opt out of such sharing. To do so, please email us at guestconcerns@hofshut.com. Your choice will not affect our ability to share information in the other ways described in this Privacy Policy.

Children’s Privacy

We recognize the importance of children’s safety and privacy. The Site is not designed to attract children and is
not intended for use by children under the age of 16. We do not request, or knowingly collect or sell, any

Do Not Track Disclosures

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a web browser setting that requests that a web application disable its tracking of an
individual user. When you choose to turn on the DNT setting in your browser, your browser sends a special signal to
websites, analytics companies, ad networks, plug in providers, and other web services you encounter while browsing
to stop tracking your activity. Various third parties are developing or have developed signals or other mechanisms
for the expression of consumer choice regarding the collection of information about an individual consumer’s online
activities over time and across third-party websites or online services (e.g., browser do not track signals), but
there is no universally agreed upon standard for what a company should do when it detects a DNT signal. Currently,
we do not monitor or take any action with respect to these signals or other mechanisms. You can learn more about Do
Not Track at www.allaboutdnt.com.

Our Site is intended for visitors in the United States only. If you are visiting the Site from a location outside
of the U.S., your connection will be through and to servers located in the U.S. All information you receive from the

Notice of Financial Incentives

As permitted by the CCPA, we may offer you certain financial incentives through the rewards programs at our
restaurants that can result in different prices, rates, or service levels. The information that we collect for
enrollment in the program (listed above) allows us to tailor our communications and products and services
suggestions for you. This, in turn, helps us establish a stronger relationship with you – something we truly value.

If you participate in our rewards programs, we may send you promotions or discounts on our Goods and Services. The
value of these discounts varies and depends on the type of product you are buying. For example, you could receive a
discount of a specified amount off your next visit with us, or a free food item.

In determining the value of this data to us, we consider the profit generated from your visit to us based on the
Personal Information you have provided, which is reasonably correlated to the value provided to the consumer through
personalized coupons, promotions, and other discounts or offers.

Participation in our rewards programs is voluntary and requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at
any time. If you wish to leave our rewards programs, please reach out to us using the information in the Contact Us
section below.

For full program details, please click on the “EClub” or “Preferred Guest” section on our Home Page.

Right to Opt-Out of the Sale or Sharing of Personal Information

As a California resident, you also have the right, at any time, to tell us not to sell Personal Information – this
is called the “right to opt-out” of the sale of Personal Information or “Do Not Sell.”

We do not sell Personal Information, but we recognize that some privacy laws define “personal information” in such
a way that making available identifiers linked to you for a benefit may be considered a “sale.” To opt-out of this,
please click on this link.

Separately, California law also provides you with the ability to limit the use and disclosure of your sensitive
personal information, however, we always limit our use of any sensitive personal information to only that which is
necessary to perform our services for you, as set forth above. We do not share your sensitive personal information
or use that information to infer characteristics about you as a consumer.

Right to Delete Personal Information

You also have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and
retained, subject to certain exceptions. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary
for us or our service providers to:

    requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you,
    or otherwise perform our contract with you;
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute
    those responsible for such activities;

  • Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise
    another right provided for by law;

    impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent;
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship
    with us;
  • Comply with a legal obligation; or
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you
    provided it.

Please note that if we collected information about you for a single one-time transaction and do not keep that
information in the ordinary course of business, that information will not be retained for purposes of a request
under this section. In addition, if we have de-identified or anonymized data about you, we are not required to
re-identify or otherwise link your identity to that data if it is not otherwise maintained that way in our records.
