Do Not Track

Cohn Restaurant Group does not track its users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals. However, some third party websites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such websites, most web browsers (like Safari) allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked. 

Privacy Policies of Third Parties and External Links

Our websites contain links to several third party websites not owned or controlled by Cohn Restaurant Group and this Privacy Policy does not apply to such websites or the use of any data by such websites. Should you decide to navigate to any websites or webpages external to the our websites, you do so entirely at your own risk. We are not responsible for the actions, privacy, security or content of such third party websites. If you are asked to provide information on one of these websites, we encourage you carefully to review their privacy policy before sharing your information.   Please note most reservations at Cohn Restaurant Group’s restaurants are managed by third party service providers, including without limitation Open Table.  All information shared with such third party providers, like Open Table, are governed by such third party’s terms and conditions and privacy practices. The services of Open Table, and any other third party websites linked to our websites, are not within the scope of this Privacy Policy and Cohn Restaurant Group expressly disclaims any liability, obligation or responsibility whatsoever for the content or use of such third-party websites or services.  For more information on how Open Table collects and uses your personal information, please visit its privacy policy at

California Residents: Your California Privacy Rights

Under the California Consumer Protection Act of 2018 (“CCPA”), California residents have certain rights regarding the collection, use and sharing of their personal information by Cohn Restaurant Group.    If you are a resident of California, you have the right to request to know what personal information has been collected, used and disclosed about you within the past 12 months of the date of your request, and to access that information. You may also request deletion of your personal information, though exceptions under the CCPA may allow Cohn Restaurant Group to retain and use certain personal information notwithstanding your deletion request.  We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA.   Separate from the CCPA, California’s Shine the Light law gives California residents who provide personal information in obtaining products or services for personal, family, or household use the right to request and obtain from us, once each calendar year, information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If applicable, this information would include the categories of personal information and the names and addresses of those businesses with which we shared your personal information for the immediately preceding calendar year.  We do not disclose your personal information to third parties for the purpose of directly marketing their goods or services to you unless you request such disclosure.   Cohn Restaurant Group does not sell your personal information and will not do so in the future without providing you with notice and an opportunity to opt-out of such sale as required by law.   You may exercise any of your rights described in this section by contacting us via the methods listed under “How to Contact Us” below.   We will take reasonable steps to verify your identity before responding to a request, which may require you to provide (a) three specific pieces of data we have on file for you (e.g. your name and email address you used when signing up for our e-Cuisine Club and your billing information such as the last 4 digits of your credit card or billing address you disclosed when purchasing a gift card) and (b) a statement that you “declare under penalty of perjury that you are the person about whom the Right to Know/Delete request has been made.”   You are also permitted to designate an authorized agent to submit certain requests on your behalf. For an authorized agent to be verified, you must provide the authorized agent with signed, written permission to make such requests or a power of attorney. We may also follow up with you to verify your identity according to the above method before processing the authorized agent’s request.   If we cannot successfully verify you according to the above methods, then we will not be able to comply with your request.
