7. Privacy Outside the Web Properties

The Web Properties may now or in the future contain various links to other websites. We are not and cannot be responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any of those websites. Other than under agreements with certain reputable organizations and companies, and except for third party service providers (as described in this Privacy Notice), we do not share any of the Personal Information that you provide to us with any of the websites to which the Web Properties link. Please check with those websites in order to determine their privacy policies and your rights under them.

We may use the services of third party service providers to process transactions on our behalf.

We may, at any time and in our sole discretion, terminate access of certain third party services to the Web Properties and may add additional or new third party services.


8. Your California Privacy Rights

The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) grants certain rights to California residents to access or delete the personal information that we have collected about them, to opt-out of the sale of their personal information by us to a third party, and not to be discriminated against for exercising these rights.


California residents have the right to request what personal information we collected, used, disclosed, and sold about them within the preceding 12 months. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity and California resident status, we will disclose to you the information that we have collected about you, as required by the CCPA.


California residents have the right to request the deletion of their personal information that we collect or maintain. Once we receive your request and confirm your identity and California resident status, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. Such exceptions include, but are not limited to, when the personal information is necessary to complete a transaction or provide goods or services to you, detect security incidents, comply with the law, and for internal uses reasonably aligned with your expectations.


California law requires us to identify, for the 12-month period prior to the date of this Privacy Policy, what information iCare has "sold" about you, and you have a right to opt-out of such sale. We do not sell any personal information of minors under the age of 16 without receiving affirmative authorization to do so. Also, generally speaking, please be assured that iCare does not sell or rent your information to third parties purely for our profit, to data brokers, or in any way other than those intended to improve your online experiences and the relevance of offers made to you through the Sites. There are instances where iCare has shared personal information in order to provide our customers with personalized services or customized offers to improve your online experiences, and to improve our products and services. We do this in ways that are intended to extend the iCare experience to our customers in a variety of environments. Depending on the circumstances and the contractual obligations in place, this sharing may be a "sale" under applicable law and you may have the right to request that we stop such sharing as more fully set forth below. This sharing includes:

  • Identifiers such as a real name, alias, postal address, geolocation information, unique personal identifier (such as a device identifier; cookies, beacons, pixel tags, mobile ad identifiers and similar technology; customer number, unique pseudonym, or user alias; telephone number and other forms of persistent or probabilistic identifiers), online identifier, Internet Protocol address, email address, account name, and other similar identifiers;
  • commercial information, including records of products or services purchased, obtained, or considered, and other purchasing or consuming histories or tendencies;
  • Internet and other electronic network activity information, including, but not limited to, browsing history, search history, and information regarding your interaction with Aramark’s websites, applications or advertisements; and 
  • inferences drawn from any of the information identified above to create a profile about you reflecting your preferences, characteristics, predispositions, and behavior.


California Residents have the right to not receive discriminatory treatment if and when they exercise their rights to access, delete, or opt-out under the CCPA.

This means we cannot, for example:

  • Deny goods or services to you;
  • Charge different prices or rates for goods or services, including through the use of discounts or other benefits or by imposing penalties;
  • Provide a different level or quality of goods or services to you; or
  • Suggest that you will receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

Please note that we may charge a different price or rate, or provide a different level or quality of goods and/or services to you, if that difference is reasonably related to the value provided to you by your personal information.

Exercising Your Rights

In order to exercise your “access”, “deletion”, and/or “opt-out” rights, you may submit a request through a web form here or call us at (877) 999-4862. You may also authorize another person (your "agent") to submit a request on your behalf, and in the same manner. Once we receive your request, we will contact you to verify your identity and California resident status and review your request.

We aim to respond to your requests within 45 days of receiving the request. If we need more time to respond to your request, we will let you know the reason and how much additional time we will need.
