The Information We Collect
We know you love surprises ... for your birthday. Not when it comes to your privacy. We only collect personally identifiable information about you when you provide it voluntarily, by entering information on our Website, through our mobile apps, or giving information to us in another way. For example, personal information may be collected when you order products, enter contests, vote in polls or otherwise express an opinion or subscribe to one our services. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. The types of personally identifiable information that we may collect include: name, address, email address, telephone number, fax number, credit card information, birthday and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs and services.
We also may collect certain non-personally identifiable information, such as aggregated data and anonymized data. (For example, Potbelly may automatically collect website use information about the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system, domain name and information about your internet service provider.)
How We Use the Information
We may use the information you provide about yourself to fulfill your requests for our products, programs and services. With your permission, we may also use the information to communicate with you about our promotional offers, events or for other marketing purposes.
In the event of a merger, acquisition, financing or sale of assets or any other situation involving the transfer of some of all of our business assets, Potbelly may disclose your personal information to those involved in the negotiation or transfer.
Collection of Information by Third-Party Sites
Our Website may contain links to other sites whose information practices may be different than ours. You may wish to consult their privacy notices as well, as we have no control over information that is submitted to, or collected by, these third parties.
Our Websites may also use web beacons or pixel tags, which are electronic images that may be used on our Websites or in our emails. We use these tools to deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.
We love when kids visit our shops—but our website is not intended for use by fans under the age of 13. Potbelly does not knowingly request or collect personal information from children under the age of 13.

Change is hard, we know. But when it comes to internet security, we want to make sure we are always doing our best to protect ourselves and our fans, so we may change our policy from time to time. Please check our policy frequently for changes.
