Privacy Policy

Scope of Our Policy

Pho Bac Hoa Viet is very sensitive to the privacy concerns of our guests. We believe that privacy of personal information is a serious matter and we strive to manage any information we collect from you or you may share with us in a careful and sensible manner. This policy describes:

  • How and why we collect your personal information.
  • How your information is used and shared.
  • How we protect your information.
  • How you can control the use of your information.

By visiting any of our Websites, you accept our practices as set forth in this notice. We encourage you to carefully read our policy to understand how we manage this information. Laws and practices governing the handling of this information are constantly changing, as a result we may and do update this policy from time to time so you are urged to periodically read our policy to take note of any changes.

Information We Collect

The information we collect helps us provide you with the opportunity for a great guest experience at one of our restaurants or on our Websites. Generally, no personal information is automatically collected from visitors to our Websites who do not elect to provide the information through one of the activities listed in the next paragraph. However, certain non-personal information, including IP addresses, is recorded by the standard operation of Pho Bac Hoa Viet’s Internet servers. We may also automatically collect information about your use of our services, including the type of operating system in use (e.g., MacIntosh, Windows), the type of browser you use (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari and Chrome), access times, pages viewed, and the page you visited before navigating to our services.

We also may collect personal information you provide directly to us that can be used to uniquely identify or contact you. The types of information we may collect include name, postal address, email address, zip code, phone number, credit card number, birthday (month and day only), legal age, and dining preferences. We collect information when you engage in any one of the following voluntary activities: on-line email club submissions, in-restaurant table top media devices, in-restaurant surveys, research surveys, to-go orders, online gift card purchases, guest relations communications, on-line location services or other voluntary activities.

Additionally, use of the Chili’s mobile site or application (e.g. iOS or Android devices) may result in the collection of additional information about you such as information related to a Chili’s GPS location. To provide location-based services related to our business, Pho Bac Hoa Viet may collect, use, and share precise location data. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Pho Bac Hoa Viet and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services.

Use and Sharing of Information

Our primary goal in collecting any of this information is to provide an enhanced on-line and in-restaurant experience for our guests by understanding preferences, communicating promotions and upcoming events, and providing the best possible guest experience at our restaurants. Other uses of this information include internal review of the number of visitors to our Websites but only in an aggregate and non-personally-identifiable form.

Cookies

A cookie is a piece of data stored on your browser containing information about you. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information. There are two types of cookies in use on our Websites. One type of cookie is often referred to as a session cookie, which is used to enhance your experience and enable certain features on our Websites. Once you close your browser, a session cookie simply terminates. For instance, by using a session cookie on our Websites, you would not have to enter a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our Websites. If you reject the session cookie, you may still use our Websites. The only drawback to this is that you will be limited in some areas of our Websites.

The other type of cookie used on our Websites enable us and our partners and advertisers to track and target the interests of our users and to provide ads about goods and services of interest to them. These cookies will not terminate when you close your browser, but may stay on your browser for a predefined period of time and will expire when you clear your cookies within the browser. These types of cookies may also be used by third parties serving ads across the internet, as described in the next paragraph.

Third Party Ads

Pho Bac Hoa Viet uses third parties to serve ads across the Internet. These third parties may also collect anonymous information about your visits to our Websites. This is primarily accomplished through the use of a technology device, commonly referred to as a Web beacon or an Action Tag, which we place on various web pages within our Websites that allows the third party to collect anonymous information through the use of cookies. The third party may use information about user’s visits to this and other web Sites in order to provide ads about goods and services of interest to them. Although you may not opt out of receiving online advertisements generally, you may find out how to opt out of having your online behavior collected by third-party advertisers for advertising purposes. You may visit each ad network’s website individually to opt-out and review their privacy policies, or you may click here to visit the Digital Advertising Alliance’s opt-out website, or click here to visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out website.

We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and advertisers through use of cookies or other technologies. This information is not linked to any personal information that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person.

Generally, we will not share email addresses or personal demographic information with any of our partners. We do use outside third parties to provide services to Pho Bac Hoa Viet, such as marketing, shipping, and credit card processing companies for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any purposes except to provide services to Pho Bac Hoa Viet. We also partner with some other companies to provide specific services, such as newsletter or email fulfillment and personalization. When you register for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services on our behalf. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

We may also share or transfer your information to a third party in connection with a business reorganization, sale of assets, or in connection with a merger. In the event of such transfer, the third party will treat such data in accordance with the terms of this privacy policy. Our Websites as well as some Sites accessible through our Websites use pixels, transparent GIF files or web beacons, to help manage online advertising, learn about how you use of our services and products, and customize your experience on our Websites. These items may deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and promotion effectiveness.

To the extent that any of the sites accessible through Pho Bac Hoa Viet’s Websites have different practices, these practices will be explained at that site.

From time-to-time our Websites request information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include personal information such as contact information (such as name and email address) and demographic information (such as zip code, age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of our Websites.

Protection of Information

Pho Bac Hoa Viet takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via our Websites, your information is protected both online and off-line. When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive personal information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), we use commercially reasonable standards to encrypt the information using industry standard encryption software – Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). When you use our registration/order form, you must use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Firefox, Chrome, or Internet Explorer. Doing so protects the confidentiality of your personal information while it is transmitted over the Internet.

While we use SSL encryption to protect this sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, the servers that we store personally identifiable information on are kept in a secure environment.

Control of Information

If your personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if you no longer desire our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove your personal data provided to us. This can usually be done by contacting us using the contact information below. If you receive a marketing email from us, we do provide in each email the option to unsubscribe from future emails.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Websites so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify users by way of an email and by updating this policy. Users will have a choice as to whether or not we use their information in this different manner. We will use information in accordance with the privacy policy under which the information was collected.

Children’s Privacy

The content of our Site is not directed to children under the age of 13 and Pho Bac Hoa Viet does not knowingly collect personal information from any child under the age of 13 at our Site without parental consent. Please contact us via the contact address below if you believe we may have collected information from your child without permission from you and we will work to delete it.
