We collect information in three ways:
- We collect information that our customers supply to Teresa’s Pizza and its franchisees through our website’s on-line ordering portals and through point of sale transactions conducted at the store locations of Teresa’s Pizza franchisees.

Collection and use of Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information is information that concerns you individually and would permit someone to contact you. Examples include your name, address, telephone/fax number and electronic mail address.
Personally Identifiable Information is supplied to and retained by Teresa’s Pizza and its franchisees in connection with point of sale activities. The information collected generally is limited to the name, address and telephone number given by the customer to aid completion of the transaction and to verify the customer’s identity. Personally Identifiable Information may also be collected by Teresa’s Pizza and its franchisees or affiliates in connection with promotional activities conducted at store locations. (Example: business card drawings to win a free pizza.)
Teresa’s Pizza also collects Personally Identifiable Information through its website regarding customers who specifically choose to receive information regarding Teresa’s Pizza specials, offers, promotions and other information about Teresa’s Pizza.
If you contact Teresa’s Pizza or its franchisees by letter, phone, or electronic mail through the contact information on the “Customer Feedback” pages, we will collect your sender information and may collect the other information you voluntarily disclose to us. Personally Identifiable Information is used by Teresa’s Pizza and its franchisees to facilitate the transaction pursuant to which that personal information is provided, including, but not limited to verification of the identity of customers. In situations where the customer or user has indicated consent, the personal information supplied is also used to provide those persons with product or service updates, promotional notices and offers, and other information about Teresa’s Pizza and its franchisees.
The Teresa’s Pizza website will not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you provide it. If you do not want us to obtain any personally identifiable information about you, please do not submit it to us.
