Information We Collect and How We Use It
We collect certain information from and about our users three ways: from our Web Server Logs, Cookies, and Users.
a. Web Server Logs
When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:
- Your Internet protocol address
- The kind of browser or computer you use
- Number of links you click within the site
- State or country from which you accessed the site
- Date and time of your visit
- Name of your Internet service provider
- Web page you linked to our site from
- Pages you viewed on the site
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
We reserve the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but do not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.
c. User Information
Visitors to our website have the option of providing their personally identifiable information to us such as when they join Club Der, purchase merchandise or mobile applications, or request franchise information. We will request personally identifiable information such as name, address, email, or telephone number. If you purchase merchandise, we will request financial information, such as account or credit card information. Any financial information we collect
is used to bill you for the services you purchased or otherwise process your transaction. If you purchase by credit card, you consent to us providing your financial information to our service providers and such third parties as we determine is necessary to process your transaction, such as credit card companies and banking institutions.
We may use third parties to help us operate our business and/or website, and may share your information with them to perform services on our behalf. We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary including:
- To fulfill your service requests for services
- To protect the safety or interests of us or other visitors to the website
- To respond to legal process or comply with law
- In connection with a sale, merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or liquidation of the company
We may also collect demographic information that you provide to us, such as zip code, to tailor the site to you and for internal purposes.
Use of Web Beacons or GIF files
Our Web pages may contain electronic images known as web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow us to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. We may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. Tastee Freez prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.
We are committed to keeping your information secure and confidential. We have taken measures to protect your information from improper use and unauthorized access. No matter how hard we try, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. It is important to take personal measures in safeguarding your password and computer.

If you believe your child has submitted personal information on our site, please contact us at the address listed below, and we will delete the information.
If at any time you decide that you no longer want us to send you information about us or our affiliate’s products and services, you can change the preference you selected at the time of registration. Email messages will also provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of receiving this information. Please note that changes to your preferences may not be effective immediately.
