However, despite our efforts, please be aware that no security measures are perfect or impenetrable and we cannot guarantee that the information you transmit or provide to us will be completely secure.
Do Not Track
Cohn Restaurant Group does not track its users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party websites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such websites, most web browsers (like Safari) allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked.
Privacy Policies of Third Parties and External Links
Our websites are intended for general audiences and is not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information without parental consent, please contact us at [email protected]. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information without parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to remove such information and terminate the child’s account.
California Residents: Your California Privacy Rights
Under the California Consumer Protection Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), California residents have certain rights regarding the collection, use and sharing of their personal information by Cohn Restaurant Group.

We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA.
Separate from the CCPA, California’s Shine the Light law gives California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family, or household use the right to request and obtain from us, once each calendar year, information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of personal information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared your personal information for the immediately preceding calendar year. We do not disclose your personal information to third parties for the purpose of directly marketing their goods or services to you unless you request such disclosure.
Cohn Restaurant Group does not sell your personal information and will not do so in the future without providing you with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of such sale as required by law.

We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request, which may require you to provide (a) three specific pieces of data we have on file for you (e.g. your name and email address you used when signing up for our e-Cuisine Club and your billing information such as the last 4 digits of your credit card or billing address you disclosed when purchasing a gift card) and (b) a statement that you “declare under penalty of perjury that you are the person about whom the Right to Know/Delete request has been made.”
You are also permitted to designate an authorized agent to submit certain requests on your behalf. For an authorized agent to be verified, you must provide the authorized agent with signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney. We may also follow up with you to verify your identity according to the above method before processing the authorized agent’s request.
If we cannot successfully verify you according to the above methods, then we will not be able to comply with your request.
