The App is available through the iTunes and Google Play stores. This End User License Agreement (together with any documents referred to therein) (collectively, this “Agreement”), along with Famous Dave’s Mobile App Privacy Policy governs your use of our App.

Participation in the Famous Dave’s Rewards Program (“Rewards Program”) is governed by the Rewards Program Terms and Conditions, which are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms.

By downloading, installing, or using the App or participating in our Rewards Program, you accept and agree that you are legally bound by the terms of this Agreement and our Mobile App Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree to this Agreement or our Mobile App Privacy Policy, do not use, access, download, or install any part of the App or participate in the Rewards Program.

We may revise and update this Agreement in our sole discretion, and will post any updates to the Agreement on the relevant App stores. Your continued use of our App, or any other service provided through the App, means that you accept and agree to the modified End User License Agreement.

A separate Privacy Policy and User Agreement governs your use of and orders through the website togo.famousdaves.com and through the App. Famous Dave’s website at www.famousdaves.com is governed by its own Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.
