In order to make our website more useful to our users, we collect personal information in a variety of ways, as outlined in this Privacy Policy. We have designed this Privacy Policy, and our underlying procedures, to best protect users' private information while making our website as useful and user friendly as possible. We endeavor to protect our users' private information to the greatest extent possible, but we cannot promise, and users should not expect, that personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Children, meaning those who are not yet 18 years old, are not eligible to use Sushi Katsu. We ask that children not submit personal information to us.

Sushi Katsu provides a Contact Form at various pages of our website for site visitors who are interested in our marketing and affiliate programs. This Contact Form collects the following information: first and last name, company name, street address, phone number, email address, city, state, zip code and business type.


Surveys and Contests
Sushi Katsu may request information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. If Sushi Katsu chooses to use a third party in administrating any such contest or survey, that third party may have participants' information.

Sushi Katsu maintains a service allowing our users to refer our services to another person. If a user elects to use our referral service to tell someone else about our website, we request the referral's name and e-mail address. The referral may contact Sushi Katsu at to request his or her removal from our database.

Enhancement of Marketing Profile
We may purchase third party marketing data and add it to our user database to target our advertising and provide pertinent offers to our users. We use this information to enhance the profile of individual users, and it is tied to users' personally identifiable information. This information is not collected directly from users, but from third party sources.

User Profiles
We use users' personally identifiable information to facilitate their use of our services. We create a personalized profile for each of our users by storing information we collect through a variety of mechanisms, which are explained below. This profile includes information on our users' viewing preferences, activities on our website and interactions with Sushi Katsu. By analyzing our users' activities on our website and use of our services, we can improve our services and our website.


A cookie is a very small file stored on the user's hard drive that identifies the user to our website and assists us in data collection. We use both session cookies, which terminate when the user's browser is closed, and persistent cookies, which must be manually deleted.

Session cookies allow our system to remember information about the user only during that internet browser session.

Persistent cookies allow our system to remember our users, meaning that they will not be required to log in every time that they visit our website. Users may reject these cookies, or manually delete them. We do, however, offer several features only available through the use of a cookie; users who have rejected our cookies may not be able to access these features.

Log Files:
We employ log files, which track certain information about your internet connection, including internet protocol addresses and internet service provider type. These log files are not linked to personally identifiable information of any user. By tracking this information, we are better able to analyze our users' needs and improve our services and website.


Except as detailed in this Privacy Policy, Sushi Katsu does not share your information with third parties. The information we collect is to facilitate our users' use of our website and services.

Aggregate Information:
Sushi Katsu collects aggregate information on our users' use of our website, which we may share with third parties. This information does not contain personally identifiable information. Rather, this information is an anonymous summary of activities on our website.

Legal Requirements:
Though we strive to preserve users' privacy, we cannot ensure that users' private communications and other personal information will always remain confidential. For example, we may disclose personal information when required by law or when we believe parties are misusing or attempting to misuse our websites or services.

Users should also know that there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully access private communications and information. While we use several online and offline security tools, policies and procedures, we cannot guarantee security of the information we collect or that unauthorized access will not occur.

Third Parties:
Users of our website are always notified when their information is being collected for marketing purposes by any outside parties, except our affiliates.

Sale, Merger or Acquisition:
In the event that Sushi Katsu goes through a merger, acquisition or asset sale, users' personal information will likely be part of the assets transferred.


Users may always "opt-out" of having their information used for most purposes. For example, users who no longer wish to receive our newsletter and promotional communications may opt-out of receiving those communications by replying to the e-mail or e-mailing us at

Promotional Communications
We send all new members an e-mail to verify usernames and passwords. Existing users will occasionally receive information on our services, products and special deals as well. We offer all users the opportunity to opt-out of these communications.

We may provide our users with a newsletter about our services. If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter, we ask for contact information such as name and e-mail address. We also offer users the opportunity to opt-out of these types of communications.

We may occasionally need to send out service-related announcements. Users may not opt-out of these communications, though they may deactivate their account entirely.

Users can self-manage their personally identifiable information by means of logging into their secure and password-protected "Dashboards." Changes made are immediately reflected throughout our system.


Changes in Personal Information
Users should e-mail Customer Support at if their personal information changes or they no longer desire our services.
