Cava Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, “CAVA”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy policy (“Policy”) applies to any website or application that we own or operate that links to this Policy, including any interactive features or services (collectively, the “Sites”). This Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit our Sites and our practices for using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information.

By visiting our Sites, you are accepting the practices described in this Policy. If you do not agree to the terms of this Policy, please do not use or download the Sites. We may, from time to time, update this Policy. In the event this Policy changes, we will inform you by posting an updated Policy on our Sites. All changes will go into effect on the last modified date noted below. This Policy is governed by the laws of the United States and by agreeing to this Policy you agree to the transfer of your information to the United States.

This Policy does not apply to information that you may submit to us offline, or to websites maintained by other companies or organizations to which we may link or who may link to us. We are not responsible for the actions and privacy policies of third party websites.

In the event of a merger, consolidation, sale, or transfer of all or substantially all of our company or its assets, information collected by our Sites may be transferred to the purchaser or the new company. Under such circumstances we would, to the extent possible, require the acquiring party to follow the practices described in this Policy, as it may be amended from time to time. Nevertheless, we cannot promise that an acquiring company or the merged company will have the same privacy practices or treat your information the same as described in this Policy.

Use of Cookies

Our Sites use cookies and other tracking technology, such as web beacons, to help us determine whether a visitor to our Sites has visited our Sites before or if he or she is a new visitor. Cookies also allow CAVA account registrants to save time during checkout on return visits. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to reject or disable the use of cookies. Please note that if you disable or delete cookies, certain aspects of our Sites will not function properly, such as the ordering. For more information on cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information provided by the Interactive Advertising Bureau at www.allaboutcookies.org.

Our cookies do not track any personally identifiable information about you or provide us with any way to contact you, and the cookies do not extract any information from your computer.

We may use third-party analytical tools, including Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to help us better understand how you use our Sites. These analytical tools will place cookies or other tracking technology on your computer or device to collect information about your activity related to, and usage of, the Sites. The information collected by these analytical tools will tell us things like which search engine referred you to our Sites, how you navigated around our Sites, what you purchased, and other information related to the Sites activity and usage. This information will help us to better serve you with more personalized information and product offerings. The technologies used by Google may collect information such as your IP address, time of visit, whether you are a return visitor, and any referring website. The Sites do not use Google Analytics to gather any personally identifiable information. The information generated by Google Analytics will be transmitted to and stored by Google and will be subject to Google’s privacy policies.

In the event a third-party provider of analytical tools will have access to your personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, phone number or precise location, we contractually require such third-party provider to limit its use of your personally identifiable information to perform services for us and to maintain all of the information it collects and analyzes for us securely and in confidence. Such third parties may not share your personal information with anyone else, or use it for any other purpose, except on an aggregate, non-identifiable basis.

We also may partner with third-party advertising companies who may utilize cookies or other tracking technologies, to collect information about you when you use the Sites. These cookies and other technologies are used to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. These third parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based advertising or other targeted content. These partners do not have access to or use your name, address, email address, telephone number or other personally identifiable information from us, without your consent. They may, however, use persistent identifiers to anonymously track your Internet usage across other websites in their networks beyond our Sites. Such third parties may, with sufficient data from other sources, be able to personally identify you, unknown to us. We do not control these third parties’ tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about an advertisement or other targeted content, you should contact the responsible advertiser directly.
