The Way/How We Use Information
We use email addresses, phone number and other information collected through the Site, Rewards Site and Mobile App or other communications to address and answer customer inquiries and issues brought to our attention.

We periodically distribute newsletters through postal mail. This may include providing the postal service with a list of physical mailing addresses for specific mailings and newsletters to provide our customers with the most relevant information. For customers receiving postal mailings, physical mailing addresses may also be shared with National Change of Address (NCOA) services for address verification and improved delivery rates.
We use non-identifying data and aggregate information to better design our Site, Rewards Site and Mobile App as well as to provide value to customers who have registered through them.

Examples of these use cases include locating the owner of a rewards card left behind at a store, facilitating transaction processing, loss prevention and theft investigations, and responding to personal inquiries regarding rewards earning/redeeming or past transactions associated with your rewards account.
