Hokey Pokey gives all its users the assurance that it will not give, sell, rent, share, loan or use otherwise the Personal Information of its users to any third party except with the prior permission of the user or as disclosed in this policy or as may be permitted or required by law.
In some of the cases Hokey Pokey may appoint some third parties to provide the services to its users and Hokey Pokey also gives the assurance that the third party will be bound by confidentiality obligations. Hokey Pokey takes all required reasonable steps to ensure that the Personal Information of its users is kept safe from any loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. The Personal Information collected/received from any of the users will be retained by Hokey Pokey in accordance with this policy only for as long as may be necessary or relevant for the purpose of collection or as may be required or permitted by law, after which time it will be destroyed or made anonymous unless it is required to be retained for further time.
Hokey Pokey generally notifies its users of the purposes of the collection, use and disclosure of the Personal Information at the time of collection, unless the purpose is obvious and the users voluntarily provide the information or Hokey Pokey is required or authorized by any law of the state to do so. Without limiting the foregoing, Hokey Pokey may collect, use and disclose particular types of Personal Information as follows:
If any of the customers provide Hokey Pokey his/her comments on his/her experiences at any of the outlets of Hokey Pokey. Hokey Pokey may forward such Personal Information provided by the customer to the relevant outlet, and that outlet itself may use that information in order to respond to, keep a record of, administer and make known within Hokey Pokey and its franchisees the comments, queries and suggestions of the customers.
CONTESTS & PROMOTIONS
Contests and promotions may be sponsored by companies other than Hokey Pokey or may be co-sponsored by Hokey Pokey and one of our partners. Our promotions, contests, and sweepstakes may often request additional information from entrants. Some of the data collected may be shared with that partner or sponsor. When you request information, you give Hokey Pokey the permission to transfer your information to the sponsor so that they may answer your request.
WEBSITE Users can visit the Hokey Pokey website without registering or providing any Personal Information at all. However, at certain portions of the Hokey Pokey website, such as at the Catering page and Feedback page, website users may have to provide certain Personal Information to Hokey Pokey. Though Hokey Pokey takes all reasonable steps to safe guard the personal information provided by its users, Hokey Pokey cannot guarantee the confidentiality or security of any e-mail communication or information sent by the user to Hokey Pokey via the website. If any of the users really want to send any confidential information to Hokey Pokey, those users are requested to please notify Hokey Pokey first to make some arrangements to secure the confidentiality of such information.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
When you supply us with your Personal Information we will use it for the express purpose for which it was collected (e.g., to enter you in a sweepstakes or to send you a sample). It may also be used to contact you regarding other products and services that may be of interest to you (including those we may offer jointly with other companies). At any time, however, you may opt out of such contact.
At times we may retain third parties to analyze data we collect, including Personal Information, solely to help us improve our products and our web site. In addition, if you order a product or service from us, we may provide Personal Information to suppliers and other third parties to enable delivery of such product or service. These third parties, including suppliers, are not authorized by us to use your Personal Information in any other way. Hokey Pokey does not sell Personal Information.
We may supplement the information that you provide to us with other information that we receive from third parties. We do this for marketing purposes in order to provide the most appropriate products and services to meet your needs.
Finally, please note that we will release your Personal Information if required to do so by law, or by search warrant, or court order.
