Effective November 1, 2019.

Taisho Hospitality LLC (“Taisho,” “we,” or “us”) respects the sensitive nature of any personal information you provide to us.  We have created this Privacy Policy in order to demonstrate our commitment to the privacy of those who visit our website (the “Site”). This Privacy Policy describes our information collection, storage and disclosure practices and the choices you have regarding how your personal information is collected and used by us and third parties who provide services for us.


Our Sites are operated in the United States but can be accessed worldwide.  Residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), which includes the member states of the European Union (“EU”), should consult the sections of this policy relating to the “Rights of EEA Residents” and “International Data Transfers” for provisions that may apply to them.


We may send out emails regarding our restaurants and their menus (our “Services”).  No outside parties are given your contact information, nor do they have access to it, except as outlined below.


We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time.  In the event we make changes to this Privacy Policy, such policy will be re-posted in the “Privacy” section of our Sites with the date such modifications were made indicated on the top of the page or we may contact you to inform you about the revisions with a link to the revised Privacy Policy.  All changes are effective on the date listed at the top of this page and will apply to all information that we have about you.  Your continued use of the Sites or the Services that we provide after any change is posted indicates your acceptance of the changes and your continued consent to our processing of your personal data.  If at any point you do not agree to any portion of the Privacy Policy, then in effect you should immediately stop using the Sites.  You may also unsubscribe from certain communications by following the procedures set forth in this Privacy Policy, including the section below on “Notifications and Communications from Our Site/Opt-Out Rights.”

Because this Privacy Policy contains legal obligations we encourage you to review this Privacy Policy carefully.  If you have any questions concerning this Privacy Policy or our information collection, storage and disclosure practices, please contact us at or mail us at Taisho Hospitality, LLC, 14016 Ventura Blvd Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.

Information We Collect

“Personal Data” is information that may be used to directly or indirectly identify you (which some cases, may include certain Device Information).  Such information includes your name, e-mail address, physical address, phone number or other information about you such as your birth date.  Most of the Personal Data we collect is contact information about yourself, including e-mail address, telephone numbers, physical address or other information you provide to us.  You may provide such information online or through other communications with us, including visits to our restaurants.   We may combine the Personal Data that we obtain about you from these sources.

We collect Personal Data about you to (i) provide information to you regarding the Services we provide; (ii) provide answers to your inquiries or questions; and (iii) maintain regular communication with you as may be necessary to inform you of offers, updates and other information regarding us and our Services.


Non-Identifiable Data and Aggregated Personal Data

Regardless of whether you register for an account or submit information to us, Taisho and third parties performing services for us also collect unidentifiable or aggregated Personal Data pertaining to your Site visits that help us maintain the appropriate features, functionality and user experience.

We may send one or more “cookies” to your computer.  Cookies are small text files placed on your web browser when you visit our Sites that store information on your computer, such as your Site preferences.  We use cookies when you sign in to keep track of your personal session.  We also use cookies to track your activity on the Sites as a unique person.  For security purposes, all this information is stored in encrypted form.

You can set your web browser to inform you when cookies are set, or to prevent cookies from being set altogether.  Please note, however, that if you decline to use cookies, you may experience reduced functionality and slower site response times.

We and our service providers may also collect Device Identification information and web surfing data related to your use of the Sites.  Such information may include: your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, and internet service provider (ISP); your operating system; which of our web pages you access and how frequently you access them; referral or exit pages; clickstream data; and the dates and times that you visit the Sites.  This data may be collected using cookies, web beacons, page tags or similar tools.  As with cookies, the web surfing information is anonymous, “click stream” transactional data that is not associated with any users as individuals.

Web surfing data and similar information may be aggregated for administrative purposes.  We may, for example, use this aggregated information in the administration of the Sites to improve their usability and to evaluate the success of marketing and advertising campaigns, search engine optimization strategies, operation and effectiveness of pages on our website, and other marketing activities.  We also use it to help optimize the Sites based on the needs of our users.


How and When Your Information Is Shared With Other Parties

We do not sell, trade or license Personal Data about our users or customers for marketing purposes. We do, however, work with a number of trusted partners who perform vital functions as part of our operations, including managing customer support services, purchasing gift cards, facilitating marketing communications by e-mail and post, and other functions.   We do not share your Personal Data unless it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities, including providing information or Services to you.  In the event of a sale to a third party of our business assets, we may transfer your Personal Data to such third party.


Additional Sharing of Information

We may engage third parties to help us carry out certain other internal functions such as account processing, client services, or other data collection relevant to our business.  Personal Data is shared with these third parties only to the extent necessary for us to process the transactions you initiate or perform other specific Services.  Our partners are legally required to keep your Personal Data private and secure.

We may share your Personal Data with law enforcement or other government agencies as required by law or for the purposes of limiting fraud. We reserve the right to disclose your Personal Data when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process. We further reserve the right to disclose any of your Personal Data that we believe, in good faith, appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the Site or our Services, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of us, our users, customers, or others.

We will not share your Personal Data if such sharing is prohibited by applicable privacy and data protection law, including, without limitation, the EEA’s General Data Protection Regulation effective May 25, 2018.

We may ask you to provide additional information for identity verification purposes or to verify that you are in possession of an applicable email account.

Please understand, however, that we reserve the right to retain an archive of such Personal Data for a commercially reasonable time to ensure that its deletion does not affect the integrity of our data; and we further reserve the right to retain an anonymous version of such information.

  • Your California Privacy Rights

Under certain circumstances, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 states that, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, a business may be required to provide detailed information regarding how that business has shared that customer’s Personal Data with third parties for direct marking purposes. However, the foregoing does not apply to businesses like ours that do not disclose Personal Data to third parties for direct marketing purposes without prior approval or give customers a free mechanism to opt-out of having their Personal Data disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

After January 1, 2020, the CCPA (California Civil Code Section 1798.100) will provide California residents with additional protections for personal information that identifies, relates to, describes, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly with a particular consumer or household.  Under the CCPA, you may have a right to request disclosure of the categories and specific information that we have collected.  If you wish to make such a request, please contact us at

California Do Not Track Disclosures:  Although some browsers currently offer a “do not track (‘DNT’) option,” no common industry standard for DNT exists.  We, therefore, do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals.

  • Rights of EEA Residents

This section of the Privacy Policy is applicable to residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”).  The EEA consists of the member states of the European Union, i.e., Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, and Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.  This section also applies to residents of Switzerland and, in the event of its departure from the EU, residents of the United Kingdom.  Residents of the EEA and Switzerland are referred to here as “EEA Residents.”

From May 25, 2018, all processing of Personal Data of EEA Residents is performed by us in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of Personal Data and on the free movement of such data (“GDPR”).

Under the GDPR, we are both the controller and a co-processor of the Personal Data of EEA Residents.  Our purpose for collecting and processing Personal Data from EEA Residents is to authenticate subscription to our mailing lists, to provide marketing information about our Services, and to facilitate purchases of gift cards.   The legal basis for collecting Personal Data is to fulfill these purposes, including contracts between us and those who purchase gift cards.  We also rely on your consent to use our Services, including purchases and receiving communications regarding us and our Services.

We will not share the Personal Data that we obtain from you with third parties except as described above regarding Personal Data.

International Data Transfers

If you are a resident outside the United States, including in the EEA, we transfer Personal Data provided to you for processing in the United States.  Under the GDPR, we are considered a “controller” and a “co-processor” of the Personal Data of EEA Residents.  By providing Personal Data to us for the purpose of obtaining information about us and our Services, you consent to the processing of such data in the United States.  The transfer of your Personal Data to the United States is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us.  Please note that you may always remove yourself from our mailing list by contacting us at Please note that the United States does not have data protection laws equivalent to those in the EEA and other jurisdictions.
