6. CERTAIN ONLINE ORDERS.
On the Site there is a Tab entitled “Delivery And Takeout Platters”. If you click on this Tab and proceed to order a “large platter”, you will be asked to provide us with various personal information and after you click the “SUBMIT TAKEOUT PLATTERS FORM”, you will be asked to pay for your order by credit card at a website maintained by a separate entity which fulfils your order, collects your payment and remits a portion of your payment to us. Such third party entity does not deliver your order to you. Instead, you must arrange for the pick-up of your order at the location of your choice. Your name and phone number are made available to us so that we can identify you for purposes of your pick-up of your order.
7. THIRD PARTY DELIVERY SERVICES.
There are several third parties which provide ordering and delivery services with respect to our food and beverages (the “Restaurant Items”). These third parties include Grubhub, Door Dash, Office Express, Postmates and Uber Eats (each a ‘Delivery Service”).
When you order the Restaurant Items from any of such Delivery Service your order is made by using the website of such Delivery Services – not our Site. As a result, we do not collect any personal information about you and payment for the Restaurant Items is made to the Delivery Service. We receive payment from the Delivery Service based upon your order.
