How We Collect Your Information

There is some information that you voluntarily share with us.
This includes information used to register for our VIC loyalty program or to create an account on our websites. For example:

  • Name, address, phone and email
  • Payment information
  • Communication and shopping preferences
  • An encrypted version of your password
  • Driver’s license number for our VIC Loyalty Program, certain types of sales and for ID verification

We collect some information when you visit our stores, websites or use our mobile apps, or when you use our online services or view our online advertisements. 

We may collect this information automatically and link it to other information we already know about you. For example, when you sign up for our loyalty program, we may associate your in-store shopping activity with your online activity when you engage with our websites or mobile apps. Additionally, when you are logged in to our websites or use our mobile apps, we may link the device IDs or types to your account.

This includes pages you visit on our websites, items you add to your online shopping list, coupons you download and redeem from us, and purchase information.

In addition, we may collect information when you use our mobile apps, including device location (if you choose to turn this feature on).

If you choose to connect to our in-store wireless service, we may collect websites you visit and your mobile device identifier so you can automatically be connected.
