The Ginger Sushi Franchise System

The Ginger Sushi franchise system is a restaurant network made up of company-operated, franchised, and licensed Ginger Sushi restaurant businesses. Ginger Sushi franchisees ("Franchised Operators" or "Operators") own and operate their own individual franchised businesses. Ginger Sushi licensees ("Licensees") are granted a license to use Ginger Sushi's trade name and marks in the sale of Ginger Sushi products at Ginger Sushi licensed locations. Franchised Operators and Licensees are independent third parties, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to the privacy practices of any Franchised Operator or Licensee, or to any Ginger Sushi operations outside of the United States. Please see the Franchised Operator and Licensee Online Services section below for more information regarding a Franchised Operator's or Licensee's applicable policies.

    Your Rights Under the CCPA

    In general, if you are a California resident you have the following rights under the CCPA:

    • Right to Know: With respect to personal information we have collected about you in the prior 12 months, subject to certain exceptions and up to twice per twelve (12)-month period, you have the right to require us to tell you (the “Right to Know”):
      • Categories of personal information we collected about you

      • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.

      • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render 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.
      • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

      We will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our Service Providers to take similar action.

    • Right to Opt-Out: You have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information. At this time we do not sell, and we do not anticipate selling in the future, any consumer’s personal information.

      • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
      • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

    However, the CCPA allows us to offer certain financial incentives for providing us with your personal information that can result in different prices or rates for our goods or services. Any financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal information’s value. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time. However, if you choose to opt-out, do not provide certain necessary personal information, or request that we delete this personal information, we will not be able to administer the program and provide you with the financial incentive.

    The financial incentives we may provide to consumers are discount coupon codes or other price reductions, periodic promotional discounts and offers, and giveaways. These incentives involve the consumer providing personal information from Categories (A)-(D), (F), and (K) listed above.

    The financial incentive, price, or service difference is equal to the value provided to us by the personal information.

    We will confirm receipt of your request within ten (10) business days. If you do not receive confirmation of your request with the 10-day timeframe, please contact us at the email address or toll-free number provided above.

    When you submit a request, we will take steps to verify your identity and the request by matching the information you provide with the information we have in our records. We may send an email to the email address that we have in our records asking you to verify that you made the request. We may also require additional information from you that is necessary to verify and respond to your request and you must provide us with all information that we request. You can provide us this information either through our toll-free telephone number or the email address provided above. We work to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of receiving it. If we require more time (up to ninety (90) days in total), we will inform you of the reason and the extension period in writing. If we verify your Request to Know, we will provide you a report detailing the categories or specific pieces of personal information that we have collected about you. If we verify your Request to Delete, we will delete, and instruct our Service Providers to delete, any personal information we have collected about you, subject to the exceptions provided for in the CCPA. We will inform you if we cannot verify your request. If we cannot verify your request, the CCPA prohibits us from deleting or providing you any information regarding what personal information we may have collected.

    We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded and as permitted under the CCPA. If we determine that the request warrants a fee that is permitted under the CCPA, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request. We accept requests from authorized agents of California residents. If you are an authorized agent, we may require additional information and documentation, such as a valid power of attorney or written and signed authorization from the consumer. We may also require a valid email address for the consumer so that we can directly confirm the request and your authorization. In addition to submitting a Request to Delete, you may also opt out of most third-party cookies, pixels, or tags that may be on our website by adjusting the settings in your browser (i.e., disabling cookies). However, your settings are browser and device specific, so you may need to check your settings if visiting our website from a different browser or device.
