SPECIFIC COUNTRY DISCLOSURE

California

Privacy laws that apply in certain places, like California, treat “businesses” and “service providers” differently. Under those laws, a business is the company that decides why and how to process personal information. A service provider processes personal information on behalf of a business in order to provide services. When eatOS processes Your Customers’ Data, we generally act as your service provider. In select cases, however, we may act as a business when we process Your Customers’ Data. For example, we act as a business when we use Your Customers’ Data to send your customers digital receipts directly from EatOS, or when we allow you to use Customer Directory or eatOS Marketing to contact your buyer using a masked email address (for example, j*****@gmail.com) that gets routed to them via EatOS. Your customers can visit the Privacy Notice for eatOS Buyer Features for more information on how EatOS processes their data when it is acting as a business.

Even though you use our services while acting as an employee, owner, director, officer, or contractor of a company, partnership, sole proprietor of a business, nonprofit, or government agency, if you live in California, California law gives you the right to ask if we disclose your personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes (we do not disclose your personal information for others’ direct marketing purposes). It also gives you the right to ask if we sell your personal information to third parties (we do not sell your personal information and have not done so in the past), and if we did (which we don’t), you’d have the right to opt out of such sales.

 

What You Need to Know About the California Consumer Privacy Act and Internet- Based Advertising

As described in our privacy notice, eatOS and third parties that provide advertising or other functionality on our behalf, may use cookies, pixel tags, and other technology to help us advertise our products and services to you as informed by your interests. This approach is called interest-based advertising, which means we tailor our ads to you based on information that gives us a sense of what interests you, such as information collected from your activity on the web, including but not limited to, browsing or purchasing products on or through our websites or on third party websites, your activity on mobile sites and applications, or your responses to our marketing emails.

eatOS does not sell your data, has not in the past, and is committed not to do so in the future. While we do not believe eatOS’s interest-based advertising activities constitute a “sale” under CCPA, we provide you with ways for you to control the cookies, and similar technologies, and internet-based information you may share with us.

You may opt out of cookies, other than those that are necessary to provide you with our Services. You may visit EatOS’s Cookie Preferences Center to manage your cookie preferences at any time.
