What Information does sushi-one-express.com Collect?
At sushi-one-express.com, we collect two types of information: personal information and non-personal information. The types of information we collect depend on the nature of your interaction with us.

You may choose not to provide us with your personal information. However, if you make this choice we may not be able to provide you with the product, service, or information that you requested. For example, we can only offer you a sushi-one-express.com reward card if you have provided us with certain information.

However, to engage in certain special features or functions of our Web Sites, or to order products and services from our Web Sites, you may be asked to provide certain personal information, such as your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, or credit card information. We use this information to create your account, contact and correspond with you about your order, respond to your inquiries, and monitor functions of our Web Sites that you choose to use, such as Customer Reviews. If you choose to ship an order to a third party, you represent and warrant that you have obtained all necessary consents from the third party to permit sushi-one-express.com to collect, use, and disclose the third party’s personal information for the purposes of fraud prevention and processing and shipping the order.
The Customer Review functionality is provided as a rating system that offers you the chance to share your thoughts on a product. These reviews are accessible to all Web Site visitors so please use discretion when posting information to them and do not post personal information.
