  • Tracking Technologies. You can set your browser to refuse all or some cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If your browser or similar mechanism gives our Website a “do not track” signal, the Website may not honor it to the extent that the Website may use cookies or other tracking tools for the purposes described in this policy. We do not make any promises or guarantees about the effects of any “do not track” choice that you may make. You may still manage the settings on your browser or mobile device and delete and disable cookies and other tracking or recording tools. If you disable or refuse cookies or block the use of other tracking technologies, some parts of the Website may then be inaccessible or not function properly. We do not control third-party advertising and analytics providers. You should review their privacy policies for information about whether they honor the “do not track” browser signal.
  • Email. When you sign up or contact us through the Website, you may be set up to receive email messages, unless you indicate that you do not wish to receive emails. At any time, you can choose to no longer receive such emails by following the instructions found in the emails.
  • Promotional Offers. If you do not wish to have your contact information used by The Original Greene Turtle North OC to promote our programs or services, you can opt-out by sending us a letter or an email stating your request.


You may call, email, or otherwise contact us to request access to, correct, or delete personal information that you have provided to us. In some instances, we cannot delete your personal information except by also deleting your user account or terminating any services you are currently engaged in or receive from The Original Greene Turtle North OC. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

If you delete your User Contributions from the Website, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or might have been copied or stored by other Website users. Additionally, as the provider of the Website, we reserve the right to discontinue, for any reason or no reason and without notice to you: (a) the Website, in whole or in part, (b) any features or services offered through the Website; and (c) your account with any part of our Website. Following any termination of your account or access rights, you will not be permitted to access or use the Website. If your access to or use of the Website is terminated, we may use whatever means we deem necessary to prevent unauthorized access to the Website.

We only collect information from those under 18 years of age with verifiable parental consent. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 18 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information. Additionally, the Website is intended for use by adults only. We do not solicit or knowingly collect any information from visitors under 18 years of age, so please do not use the Website if you are not yet 18.


This policy is intended to cover collection of information from residents of the United States. If you are outside the United States, please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed in the United States. Although we seek to take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected, the data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country.


We have implemented commercially reasonable measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. For instance, when hired, employees are required to sign policies that are designed to protect your information. We have login and password procedures, a classification of information assets and deny access permissions, and an exit process for employees. All information you provide to us is stored behind firewalls that are set up in a high availability configuration. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using SSL technology. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. We also urge Website users to be careful about giving out information in public areas of the Website. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that your personal information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this policy. For example, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. You acknowledge that we implement commercially reasonable precautions and are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures.


We may update our privacy policy from time to time. If we make material changes to how we treat your personal information, we will post the new privacy policy on this page and notify you on our home page. The date the privacy policy was last revised is identified at the bottom of the page. You are responsible for periodically visiting this privacy policy to check for any changes.
