BY ACCEPTING THE TERMS, YOU ALSO UNDERSTAND AND CONSENT TO OUR PRIVACY STATEMENT, WHICH IS INCORPORATED INTO, AND PART OF, THIS CONTRACT. OUR PRIVACY STATEMENT DESCRIBES HOW WE COLLECT, USE AND SHARE INFORMATION.
OUR WEBSITES ARE NOT INTENDED TO BE USED BY, OR TARGETED TO, ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 YEARS OLD.
We operate and host the Websites (the “Websites”) located at: www.subway.com/en-ca, http://www.subway.com/fr-ca and www.subwaylistens.com , on servers that are located in the USA on behalf of Subway Franchise Systems of Canada, ULC., (“SFSC”), the franchisor of the Subway® brand, and Subway Franchisee Canadian Advertising Trust (“SFCAT”), the advertiser for the Subway® brand.
We may change the Terms at any time in our sole discretion. The changed Terms will be effective immediately upon posting and, by continuing to use the Website, you agree to the new Terms. You are responsible for staying informed of any changes. If you do not agree to the new Terms, your only remedy is to discontinue use of the Websites.
While we may make reasonable efforts to provide accurate and timely information about the Subway® brand on the Websites, you should not assume that the information provided is always up to date or that the Websites contain all the relevant information available.
The Websites may include a Subway® restaurant locator; menu & nutrition information; catering information; contact information; “about us” information, including history, news, social responsibility, and FAQ’s; career information; and Subway® franchise information.
Menu or nutritional information provided on the Websites is for informational purposes only, and assumes that the individual restaurants have complied with ingredient requirements and our standardized recipes. Nutrition information is compiled by a Registered Dietitian using nutrition analysis from approved food manufacturers, independent laboratories and the USDA Nutrient Database for Standard Reference. The nutrition information listed is based on standard recipes and product formulations, however slight variations may occur due to season of the year, use of an alternate supplier, region of the country and/or small differences in product assembly. Certain product or nutritional information may not apply to all restaurants. If you have questions about the products, procedures, or ingredients at a particular restaurant, please contact the restaurant.
While we operate the Websites, we are not responsible for the operation of Subway® restaurants. Instead the restaurants are owned and operated by independent franchisees. Each restaurant is solely and independently responsible for its legal and regulatory compliance, for any issues relating to the sale of menu items to you, and for any employment related matters in the restaurant.
The Websites may provide links to job opportunities posted by us or Subway® restaurants. Opportunities that are posted on www.mysubwaycareer.com are with the restaurant alone and not with us or our affiliates. This means that the restaurant that posted the opportunity is solely responsible for setting the job requirements, all hiring decisions, and all other employment related matters in its business. We do not receive a copy of any application you submit to a restaurant that is a franchise. We do not control whether you receive an interview or are hired. We do not control the franchisees’ employment policies and practices. Neither we, nor SFSC, nor our affiliates employ independent franchisees. If you are hired by a restaurant that is a franchisee, only that franchisee, and neither we, SFSC, nor our affiliates will be your employer.
Any information available on the Websites is not intended as an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, a franchise. It is for informational purposes only. In the event of any conflict or difference in interpretation, the language in the Subway® Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) shall prevail. Franchise Offering is by prospectus only. An offer to sell a franchise is only commenced by the delivery of the FDD to you in compliance with the laws that regulate the sale of franchise opportunities.
Your privacy is important to us. We provide a Privacy Statement that explains our information practices and how we may use and share your personal information. Except where additional notice or consent is required by law, by accessing, browsing, and/or using the pages or services posted on the Websites, you agree to our Privacy Statement and to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information and any submissions in accordance with our Privacy Statement. Click here to view our Privacy Statement which forms a part of this Contract.
In accordance with our Privacy Statement, we may use the information that you have provided to us to communicate with you. You have a choice in how we communicate with you. You may opt in to receive emails or text messages to the e-mail address or mobile number you provide to us. When you opt in to any of these types of communications, you understand and consent that that you will receive marketing, news, and other messages from us.
If you have a Subway® account you can opt-out of e-mail or SMS messaging by toggling the selections in your account. Or, if you previously selected to receive News and Offer e-mails from us, you can click on the link here and follow directions to change the communications that you receive.
In addition, our communications themselves may include the opportunity to opt out. For example, our News and Offer e-mails include an unsubscribe link.
You agree that you may need to separately manage your communication preferences for each communication method. For example, if you opt out of receiving marketing emails, you will still receive marketing text messages if you’ve opted in to receiving them. While we do our best to offer convenient methods for you to manage your communications preferences, you may need to separately adjust your preferences for each type of communication. Additionally, even if you have opted out of receiving e-mail marketing messages, you understand and agree that we may continue to send you e-mail messages concerning your orders, either placed on-line or through the Subway® App, and your account. If you are receiving communications from a Subway® franchisee you will need to opt out from them directly.
The Websites are not targeted towards individuals who are under the age of eighteen or the legal age of majority if different in your jurisdiction.
If you do not agree to these terms, then you must immediately stop using the Websites. We will not knowingly allow anyone under eighteen years of age or legal majority to provide us with any personal information about themselves (such as their names, email address, and phone number) over the Internet. If a minor has provided us with personal information without the consent of a parent, we ask the parent to contact our Privacy Office immediately at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use all reasonable efforts to promptly delete the minor's personal information from our servers and records.
