Last Revised: August 1st, 2016
This policy specifically pertains to the Wix Restaurants service, which is designated to allow visitors and customers of participating restaurant websites to place orders from such participating restaurants. It describes how we may collect and use personal information pertaining to such visitors and customers, and the rights and choices available to them regarding such information.
Capitalized terms which are not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the Wix Restaurants Terms of Service.
1. Acknowledgment (please read carefully!)
Please note: you are not obligated by law to provide us with any information. You hereby acknowledge, warrant and agree that any information you do provide us is provided of your own free will and consent, for the purposes and uses described herein.
This policy describes Wix Restaurants’ privacy practices – what information we collect on visitors and customers of the service, how we collect it, what we do with it, how we protect it, and your rights regarding your information.
2. What Information Do We Collect?
We collect two types of information regarding Website Visitors and Customers:
Un-identified and non-identifiable information pertaining to a Website Visitor or un-identified Customer, which may be made available to us, or collected automatically via his/her access a Participating Restaurant’s website and/or to the Service utilized thereby (“Non-personal Information”). Such Non-personal Information does not enable us to identify the Website Visitor or Customer from whom it was collected. The Non-personal Information collected by us mainly consists of technical and aggregated usage information, such as Website Visitors’ and Customers’ browsing and ‘click-stream’ activity on the Participating Restaurant’s website and the Service, session heatmaps and scrolls, non-identifying information regarding the Website Visitor’s or Customer’s device, operating system, internet browser, screen resolution, language and keyboard settings, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, date/time stamps, etc.
Individually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may with reasonable efforts cause the identification of an individual, or may be of private or sensitive nature (“Personal Information”). The Personal Information collected by us mainly consists of contact details (e.g., e-mail address or phone number), billing details (name, physical billing address, payment method and transaction details), details regarding a browsing or usage session (IP address, Geo-location and/or device unique identifier), details regarding connected third-party accounts (such as the e-mail or username for a connected PayPal, Google or Facebook account), scanned identification documents provided to us (such as an ID card, driver’s license, passport or official company registration documents), correspondences (including those made through or uploaded to our Services), and any other Personal Information provided to us by Visitors and/or Users through their access to and/or use of the Services. For the avoidance of doubt, any Non-personal Information that is connected or linked to Personal Information (for example, in order to improve the Services we offer) is deemed and treated by us as Personal Information, as long as such connection or linkage exists.
We collect two types of information: Personal Information (which could be used to uniquely identify an individual) and Non-personal Information (which is non-identifying).
We collect such information regarding visitors and customers of participating restaurants’ websites, and anyone else who may provide it to us.
3. How Do We Collect Such Information?
There are two main methods we use:
We collect information through your use of the Services. In other words, when you access or use our Service, including when you browse the Participating Restaurant’s website, we are aware of it any may gather, collect and record such uses, sessions and related information, either independently or with the help of third-party services as detailed in Section 6 below, including through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies, as further detailed in Section 7 below.
We collect information which you provide us voluntarily. For example, we collect the Personal Information you provide us when you sign-up or sign-in to our Service; when you access and use our Service; and/or when you contact us directly.
When you visit or use our services – you may also provide us with certain information (either automatically through your uses, or by manually submitting it).
4. Why Do We Collect Such Information?
We collect such Non-personal and Personal Information for the following purposes:
To provide and operate the Service, including for identifying Customers and enabling them and Participating Restaurants to place and accept Orders;
To further develop, customize and improve our Service, based on Website Visitors’ and Customers’ common or personal preferences, experiences and difficulties;
To enable Participating Restaurants to better interact and engage with their Website Visitors and Customers (and vice versa), and provide everyone with a better user experience;
To To be able to contact Customers with general or personalized service-related notices and promotional messages (as further detailed in Section 8 below);
To create aggregated statistical data and other aggregated and/or inferred Non-personal Information, which we, Participating Restaurants or our business partners may each use to provide and improve any of our respective services;
To enhance our data security and fraud prevention capabilities; and
To comply with any applicable laws and regulations.
We collect and use information in order to provide our services and make them better and safer.
We also collect and use information in order to contact our users, and in order to comply with the laws applicable to us.
5. Where Do We Store Your Information?

Wix.com Ltd. is based in Israel, which is considered by the European Commission to be offering an adequate level of protection for the personal information of EU Member State residents.
Wix affiliates and service providers that store or process your Personal Information on Wix’s behalf are each committed to keep it protected and secured, in accordance with industry standards and regardless of any lesser legal requirements which may apply in their jurisdiction.
5.2. U.S. – E.U. and U.S. – Swiss Safe Harbor and Privacy Shield Frameworks:
Wix complies with the U.S. – E.U. Safe Harbor framework and the U.S. – Swiss Safe Harbor framework, as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data from European Union member countries and Switzerland. Wix has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. To learn more about the Safe Harbor program, and to view Wix’s certification, please visit http://www.export.gov/safeharbor. While the validity of the U.S. – E.U. Safe Harbor framework has been recently rejected by the EU Court of Justice, Wix continues to adhere to its core principles, solely as a supplementary measure for further protecting and enhancing our Website Visitors’ and Customers’ privacy (and without derogating from our commitment to follow all applicable legal requirements). If you have any questions about our Safe Harbor participation, please contact us using the information below.
We may store and process personal information subject to this policy in the USA, Europe, Israel, or other jurisdictions, whether by ourselves or with the help of our affiliates and service providers.

5.3. Data Localization Obligations:
If you reside in a jurisdiction that imposes “data localization” or “data residency” obligations (i.e., requiring that Personal Information of its residents be kept within the territorial boundaries of such jurisdiction), and we become aware of that, we may maintain your Personal Information within such territorial boundaries, if we are legally obligated to do so. For example, if we learn that you reside in the Russian Federation, we may be required to maintain your Personal Information there, whether independently or with a local data storage and processing provider.

Wix, together with its marketing, analytics and technology partners, uses certain monitoring and tracking technologies (such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags and scripts). These technologies are used to collect or receive information which is necessary for us to maintain, provide and improve our Service on an ongoing basis, for both Website Visitors and Customers. For example, thanks to these technologies, we are able to maintain and keep track of Website Visitors’ and Customers’ preferences and authenticated sessions, to better secure our Service, to identify technical issues, user trends and effectiveness of campaigns, and to monitor and improve the overall performance of our Service.
Cookies: In order for some of these technologies to work properly, a small data file (“cookie”) must be downloaded and stored on your device. By default, we use several persistent cookies for purposes of session and user authentication, security, keeping the Customer’s preferences (e.g., regarding default language and settings), connection stability (e.g., for uploading media, using e-Commerce features, etc.), monitoring performance of our services and marketing campaigns, and generally providing and improving our Service.

Web Beacons/Web Bugs), which enables them and us to improve our Service by measuring their effectiveness and performance. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, however unlike cookies these are not stored on your device, but are instead embedded within our Service.

9. Accessing Your Personal Information
If you wish to access and/or request us to make corrections to the Personal Information that you have stored with us, or wish to request a list of what Personal Information (if any) pertaining to you we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes (in accordance with the California Civil Code Section 1798.83, as applicable), feel free to send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail your request to Wix.com, 40 Namal Tel Aviv St., Tel Aviv 6350671, Israel, and we will respond within a reasonable timeframe and in accordance with any applicable law.

10. Data Retention
We may retain your Personal Information for as long as your Customer Account is active or as otherwise needed to provide you with our Service.
We may continue to retain such Personal Information even after you deactivate your Customer Account and/or cease to use the Service, as reasonably necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes concerning Customers and/or Participating Restaurants, prevent fraud and abuse, enforce our agreements and/or protect our legitimate interests.
We may keep your information for as long as your account is active, and longer as needed (for example, if we are legally obligated to keep it further, or need it to protect our interests).
Wix has implemented security measures designed to protect the Personal Information you share with us, including physical, electronic and procedural measures. Among other things, we offer HTTPS secure access to most areas on our Service; the transmission of sensitive payment information (such as a credit card number) through our designated Order forms is protected by an industry standard SSL/TLS encrypted connection; and we regularly maintain a PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) certification. We also regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks, and regularly seek new ways and Third Party Services for further enhancing the security of our Service and protecting Customers’ privacy.
However – regardless of the measures and efforts taken by Wix, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of your Personal Information by Wix or anyone else. We therefore encourage you to avoid providing us with any sensitive information which you believe its disclosure could cause you substantial or irreparable harm.
Furthermore, because certain areas on our Service are less secure than others (for example, if you browse to a non-SSL page), we request and encourage you not to share any Personal Information on any such areas or via any such methods.
If you have any questions regarding the security of our Service, you are more than welcome to contact us at email@example.com.
We are committed to securing your personal information, and use various security measures to better protect it.
However, as we can’t guarantee absolute protection – we encourage you to be careful, protect your account’s login credentials, and avoid submitting any sensitive information which, if exposed, could cause you major harm.
