Privacy policy

Takeoff is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how we collect, use, share and protect your personal information.

This Privacy Policy governs the collection and use of your personal information by Takeoff on this web site, any other web site hosted by Takeoff and any application, product or service made available by Takeoff on behalf of itself or its customers, including its grocery retailer clients (collectively, the “Services”). If you do not agree with any provision of this Privacy Policy, you should immediately discontinue use of the Services.

When you use the Services you may also be subject to the privacy policies of our customers or third party service providers with respect to their use and collection of your personal information.

Information we collect

We collect (i) information provided by you when you register for one or more of our Services such as your name, email address or telephone number; (ii) information we obtain from your use of our Services such as server log information (e.g., your queries, phone number and internet protocol address), device-specific information (e.g., your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers and mobile network information including phone number), and physical location information collected from GPS location data and mobile wireless access points; (iii) information we collect during your grocery shopping sessions such as shopping list contents and ecommerce purchases; (iv) information provided by you when you participate in any promotions or contests offered by us or one of our affiliates; (v) information provided by you when offering feedback or completing profile forms; and (vi) loyalty card purchase information provided to us by our retailer clients.

Cookies and Interest-Based Advertising

“Cookies” are small pieces of information sent by a web server to a web browser which enable the server to collect information from the browser. Takeoff uses cookies for a number of purposes such as to enable us to simplify the log in process for registered users, help ensure the security and authenticity of registered users, target advertising, provide mechanisms for online shopping and enable traffic monitoring.

We use both session cookies and/or persistent cookies. We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file. Persistent cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users.

Most browsers allow you to turn off the cookie function. If you want to know how to do this please look at the help menu on your browser. As noted above, this will restrict the online Takeoff services you can use.

We employ some third-party services to help us understand the usage of Services, and these third-parties may also deploy cookies on our site or collect information through our mobile applications. For example, we use Google Analytics to understand, in a non-personal way, how users interact with various portions of our site — you can learn more about information that Google may collect here.

How we use information we collect

Information we share

As a provider of eCommerce solutions to the grocery industry, we pass your personally identifiable information to our retailer partners on whose behalf we host or provide digital services. In addition, we may share your personally identifiable information with third party vendors that support our Services (e.g., email services or customer support tool provider) or our retailer partners’ services. We will never pass your personally identifiable information to anyone else, except to any successor to our business.

We may also share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with third parties.​

Takeoff may display targeted advertisements based on non-personally identifiable individual activity. Takeoff does not provide any personally identifiable information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad.​

Legal Disclaimer

Other web sites

Our web site may contain links to other web sites which are outside our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy.

Security

We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however.
