Kura Sushi USA, Inc. and its parents, subsidiaries, and affiliates, and their respective stockholders, directors, officers, employees, agents, successors and assigns (collectively, “Kura Sushi” or “Kura”) is very sensitive to the privacy concerns of the visitors to and users of its website, mobile application, rewards programs, and other online programs (collectively the “Online Services”). This Privacy Policy outlines the types of Personal Information that you may provide to us on any Online Services controlled by Kura which links to this Privacy Policy and explains how KURA handles such Personal Information. This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal information collected from you offline, to websites or applications that do not link to this Privacy Policy or to third-party websites to which the Online Services may link. Your use of the Online Services is subject to this Privacy Policy and any additional terms and conditions applicable that may be applicable to such Online Services, including Kura’s Terms and Conditions.


“Personal Information” means information that identifies any visitor/user of the Online Services or could reasonably be used to identify such visitor/user and which is submitted to and/or collected by the Online Services and maintained by Kura, including information actively submitted by you and passively-collected information, as described below.

E-mail addresses and other Personal Information of visitors, such as a first and last name, home or other physical address or telephone number, are known to Kura only when voluntarily submitted, for example, via purchases made through the Online Services, registration for sweepstakes or contests, content submissions, suggestions or participation in online interactive activities. For example, you may submit your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for programs, contact customer service, or respond to surveys.

In addition, we may collect certain information by automated means. The information we collect may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, computer/mobile device operating system and browser type, type of mobile device, the unique device identifier (UDID) or mobile equipment identifier (MEID) for your mobile device, the address of a referring web site (if any), the pages you visit on our Online Services and other information. We may use this information to operate, maintain, and manage our Online Services and to provide services such as technical support. In addition, certain Personal Information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags, GPS beacons and web beacons. As detailed more particularly below, the Online Services use cookies and other similar technologies to track visitor/user preferences. Collectively, this information is primarily used to provide an enhanced online experience for the visitor/user. Other uses of this information include internal review of the number of visitors/users of the Online Services, but only in an aggregate and non-personally identifiable form.

Mobile apps and mobile versions of our website may collect precise information about the location of your mobile device using location awareness technologies such as GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or cell tower proximity. Kura uses this information for location-based services that you request such as locating nearby Kura Sushi restaurants or identifying special offers that may be of interest to you, or personalizing your interactions with Kura. For most mobile devices, you are able to withdraw your permission for Kura to acquire this information on your location through the device settings. If you have questions about how to disable your mobile device's location services, we recommend you contact your mobile device service provider or the device manufacturer. If you would like us to delete location information we have collected, please contact us at the email or postal address listed below. Please note that the applications may not function properly following deletion, and that we may be required by law to retain certain information.


Personal Information may be shared by Kura with its affiliates and its and their respective franchisees, and with vendors ((including but not limited to, Google Analytics, Facebook) that help access and manage the information (all of the foregoing are hereinafter referred to collectively as “authorized recipients”), but in all instances the information will be used only for the purposes enunciated in this policy. Specifically, this information may be used: (1) to help Kura better understand the user of the Online Services by visitors or users; (2) to respond to specific requests from visitors/users; (3) to provide notices to visitors/users, such as marketing information, discount coupons and new product offerings; and (4) to protect the security or integrity of the Online Services. After you have entered Personal Information into a form or data field on the Online Services, Kura may use certain identifying technologies to allow that Online Service to “remember” your personal preferences, such as sections of the Online Services that you use frequently. Kura may also use this Personal Information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding Kura products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions.


You may always limit the amount and type of actively-transmitted Personal Information that Kura receives about you by choosing not to enter any Personal Information into forms or data fields on the Online Services. However, some services can only be provided to you if you provide appropriate Personal Information. Other parts of the Online Services may ask whether you wish to opt out or opt in to contact lists for offers, promotions and additional services that may be of interest to you.

You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want the Online Services to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to “remember” your Personal Information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, if the Online Services uses tracking technologies to collect unidentifiable information, it will not generally provide you with the ability to opt out of the tracking technologies. Some internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect passively-transmitted information. More detailed information about cookie management or other passive transmissions by specific web browsers can be found at the browser's respective websites.


Unless otherwise disclosed during the collection, this information will not be sold, transferred or otherwise disclosed to anyone other than authorized recipients, except where disclosure is required by law.

To the extent that any third-party websites, including the franchised operators of Kura Sushi restaurants, and social media platforms, such as Facebook or Twitter (all links to third-party websites and social media platforms are collectively referred to herein as “External Sites”) accessible through this Online Services has different practices, those different practices will be applicable at those sites. Kura is not responsible for the practices, policies or content applicable to these External Sites. Inclusion of a link to another site does not imply endorsement by Kura.

To provide you with a more relevant and interesting experience, we may participate in behavioral-based advertising. This means that Kura and/or a third party may place a cookie on your browser, or use a web beacon, to collect information about your use of our Online Services so that Kura and/or a third party can provide advertising about products and services tailored to your interest (including, without limitation, products and services offered by Kura and its affiliates). These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to the advertisements and links that appear on the Online Services sent directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this occurs. Other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or web beacons) may also be used by the third-party ad networks to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and / or to personalize the advertising content that you see. Kura has no access to or control over these cookies that are used by third-party advertisers. You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and Kura cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or websites.


Our website uses third party cookies from Google Analytics for Demographics and Interest Reporting. This feature gives us insight into behavior information relating to visitor age, gender and interests on an anonymous and aggregate level. This will help us to understand browsing behavior to give you a better experience while visiting our site.

You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Settings Feature on Google. By clicking Ads Settings, you will be taken out of Kura’s website to a page on Google where you can control the information Google uses to show you ads. In addition, you can use Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on to disable tracking by Google Analytics.


When you view this site, Kura may temporarily store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of “cookies” or other web beacons to store information about visitors’ preferences, to record user-specific information on which pages a visitor accesses or visits, and customize web page content based on visitors’ browser types or other information that a visitor sends via their browser or other means. Passive information collection technologies such as cookies can make your use of the Online Services easier by allowing Kura to provide better service, customize sites based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Online Services. Certain features of the Online Services may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. These techniques help Kura and the Online Services functions in many ways, but with strict restrictions on their use. First, Kura’s cookies expire thirty (30) days after the end of the applicable browser session so that the site cannot track your activities over an extended period of time, and so that no permanent storage is used by these cookies. Second, Kura’s cookies are only used in order to provide convenience to you (for example, to reduce repetitive typing) and to allow Kura to tailor the site to better match your interests and preferences. They are not used to profile your activities or to gather unauthorized personal information. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, a “browser session” will be deemed to have ended when your Internet browser is closed.

With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before cookies are stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions.


Kura Sushi does not support Do Not Track browser settings and does not currently participate in any Do Not Track frameworks that would allow any of our sites to respond to signals or other mechanisms from you regarding the collection of your personal information. However, our sites do not track any personally identifiable information on our sites unless you intentionally provide it to us (such as when you create an account or opt-in to our marketing lists).


Kura makes an effort to ensure that Personal Information is protected while you are on the Online Services. However, the confidentiality of Personal Information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting Personal Information over the Internet, especially Personal Information related to your health. Kura cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to Personal Information; therefore, when submitting Personal Information to the Online Services, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks.


The Online Services may contain links to External Sites. Each of those maintains its own policies about the collection, use and security of Personal Information. Kura is not responsible for the manner in which others use your Personal Information. Before providing Personal Information to any External Site, you should read its privacy policy and terms of use, and ensure they are acceptable to you. Notwithstanding any content on the Online Services indicative of the contrary, Kura makes no endorsement of or representation about any such External Site, or any information, software, or other products or materials found there, or any results that may be obtained from using them.

If you decide to access any External Site linked to in this Online Services, you do so entirely at your own risk. Kura does not guarantee that you will receive an alert when you leave the Online Services, and it is your responsibility to determine when you have left the Online Services. Kura recommends that you review any External Site’s privacy policies before submitting any information. Kura assumes no responsibility for and shall not be liable for the privacy, terms of use, or other policies of any External Site any damage to, or viruses that may infect your computer equipment, mobile device or other property, or for any loss or corruption of data resulting from any External Site navigated to or accessed from links hosted on or contained in the Online Services.
