In this Policy, the terms “Shake Shack,” “we,” and “us” refer to Shake Shack Enterprises, LLC and its wholly owned and operated locations. This Policy does not apply to information collected by Shake Shack licensees, which maintain their own privacy policies and procedures.
By using any of the Services, you consent to the terms of this Policy.
The Personal Information Shake Shack Collects and How We Use It
In connection with your interactions with us through the Services, we may collect personal information from you or from other sources. This information may be information that you directly provide to us, such as information that you provide when you visit the Services, or information that is passively or automatically collected from you, such as information collected from your browser or device. The personal information we collect may identify you directly (e.g., your name). We also collect certain information that does not identify you directly, but in certain circumstances could allow you to be identified indirectly (e.g. certain technical data associated with devices that you use to interact with the Services).
For California residents only, please see the section below entitled “California Residents.” In that section we provide additional detail on our collection and use of personal information as that term is defined in California law.
In some instances, Shake Shack may also collect information from third party sources, upon whom we rely to provide the Services. We use both business partners and service providers, such as payment processors and analytics providers, to perform services on our behalf. Some of these partners may have access to information about you that we may or may not otherwise have (for example, where you sign up directly with that provider) and may share some or all of this information with us. We may use this information to administer and improve the Services and to conduct marketing and advertising campaigns.
In response to public health guidance or mandates from government authorities, we may collect health data from our guests as we deem appropriate to provide a safe space for them and our employees.
How We Share and Disclose Information
Shake Shack only shares personal information with affiliated companies, as well as business partners and service providers whom we rely on to help us provide better service to you. These companies need information about you to perform their service function (such as to process and fulfill your order, verify your credit card information, and to protect you from fraud). We also share information with specially chosen companies that help us with marketing functions (such as to manage our Internet business and to maintain and manage our customer information, as well as to market our products and services). We may engage vendors to serve advertisements on our behalf across the Internet and to provide analytics services. These vendors may collect certain technical or other information from you (e.g. clickstream information, browser type, time and date, hardware/software information, cookie ID, IP address, etc.) when you visit our Website or Mobile App, and may use that information to provide advertisements about goods and services that are deemed to be of greater interest to you.
We may also share your information for any other purpose as disclosed at the time of collection, or when we have otherwise obtained consent. Please note that this Policy is not intended to limit our ability to share or disclose aggregated, pseudonymized, or anonymized data. Shake Shack also reserves the right to use or disclose information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to fulfill your requests, to cooperate in any law enforcement or similar investigation, or to conduct any internal investigation or similar function we deem appropriate to protect our business.
How We Protect Your Information
Shake Shack uses technical, physical, and administrative security measures to reduce the risk of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of your information. Examples of our safeguards include firewalls, data encryption, physical access controls, and administrative informational controls. When you transmit sensitive information through the Website or in the Mobile App, we encrypt the transmission of that information using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol. No system or network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, we recommend that you help us keep your information safe by taking reasonable steps such as keeping your passwords private, changing them from time to time, and not disclosing personal data in places that can be accessed publicly.
We retain your information only for as long as is necessary to provide the Services and to fulfill the transactions you have requested, or for other necessary purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements.
