3. Information We Collect

We collect information described below to save you time and money and to make your shopping experience better. We have grouped the information we collect into categories, with some of the information listed in multiple categories.

  • Personal identifiers such as name, online identifiers like user account names, state and federal government ID number (where required), signature, and unique identifiers that we associate with you. In some cases, we may scan your driver’s license to verify you are old enough to make a restricted purchase or to enroll in our VIC loyalty program.
  • Contact information such as your email, postal address, billing address, delivery or shipping address, and phone numbers.
  • Health-related information.
    • To provide requested services to you or with your prior consent, we may collect health-related information in connection with certain consumer programs (e.g., wellness coaching or nutritional counseling, when we are not acting as a covered entity) and consumer research studies.
    • If you are injured in one of our stores, we may collect health-related information from you related to that incident.
    • Where permitted by applicable law, to serve you better we may make certain inferences about you based upon your shopping history that are health related.
    • If you are a pharmacy customer, we may collect “Protected Health Information” (PHI) that is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

  • Online and technical information such as your IP address and device or other persistent identifiers, browser type and version, time zone setting, device characteristics, browsing data, data related to your viewing of (and interactions with) our advertisements, website and app usage information, and other information that we collect using cookies, pixels, SDKs, and other similar technologies.

We may record your voice when you contact our customer service centers.
  • General demographic information such as age, marital or family status (including whether your family includes children), languages spoken, education information, gender, employment information, or other demographic information. In addition, when permitted by applicable law, we may collect (or make inferences about) ethnicity or race.

  • Inferences include information derived from other information that we have collected. We create inferred and derived data elements by analyzing your shopping history in combination with other information we have collected about you to personalize product offerings, your shopping experience, marketing messages and promotional offers.

Some of the information about you may include personal information that can be used to identify you, like name, address, and email address. In certain states, the definition of personal information may be broader and include things like IP address, mobile device ID, and unique identifiers used by cookies. When the information we collect about you is considered personal information under applicable law, we treat it as personal information.

Personal information does not include data where your identity has been removed so that we can no longer identify you or that we aggregate so that you can no longer be identified, which we may use for any purpose.

Children’s Privacy

Our websites are for a general audience and are not geared toward children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 16. If you believe your child may have disclosed personal information to us, please call 1-800-432-6111 and we will remove it.

  • To detect and prevent fraud
  • To conduct analytics activities
  • To improve our websites and services
  • To facilitate Interest Based Advertising

In many cases, the data collected through these cookies is controlled by us, but in some cases the data collected through use of these cookies is controlled by our vendors or other third parties.

Cookies may remain on your device for an extended period. If you use your browser’s method of blocking or removing cookies, some, but not all, types of cookies may be deleted and/or blocked. If you delete or block cookies, some functionality on our websites may not work properly.

Other Tracking Technologies

In addition to cookies, we may use other types of tracking technologies in connection with our websites, mobile applications, advertisements, and other digital service offerings.

Like with cookies, the data collected through these other types of tracking technologies is in many cases controlled by us. However, in some cases the data collected through these other technologies is controlled by our vendors or other third parties such as our clients.

Examples of other tracking technologies include:

-Web Beacons

Web beacons are embedded images or objects that are used on web pages or emails. Examples of why we may use web beacons include:

Like with cookies, in many cases the data collected through these SDKs is controlled by us, but in some cases the data collected through use of these SDKs is controlled by our vendors or other third parties.

Unlike cookies, SDKs and other in-app tracking technologies are not browser based and therefore cannot be controlled through browser settings.

For example, we may offer an interactive chat feature on the website to assist you with your order and other customer service purposes. When you participate in the interactive chat, the contents of the chat may be captured and kept as a transcript. By using these features, our vendors may process the information obtained through the feature to provide the service on our behalf.

8. Interest-Based Advertising

Interest-based advertising (also known as online behavioral advertising) occurs when advertisements are displayed to you based on information collected from your online interactions over time and across multiple websites that you visit, or across multiple devices or online services that you may use. Companies that engage in interest-based advertising use this information to predict your preferences and show you ads that are most likely to be of interest to you.

Some of the content, applications, and tracking technologies on our websites and mobile applications is controlled by third parties, which include ad tech companies (such as Meta or Google) or other online service providers that serve interest-based advertisements. These third parties may use cookies, web beacons, and other storage technologies to collect or receive information from our websites, apps, other apps, and elsewhere on the Internet and use that information to provide measurement services as well as for interest-based advertising.

We do not control these third parties' collection or use of your information to serve interest-based advertising. However, these third parties may provide you with ways to choose not to have your information collected or used in this way.

For example, you can block the collection and use of information related to you by online platforms and ad tech companies for the purpose of serving interest-based advertising by visiting the following websites of the self-regulatory programs of which those companies are members:

  • The NAI’s opt-out page is available here.
  • The DAA’s opt-out page is available here.

You may still see “contextual” ads even if you opt out of interest-based ads. These ads, however, are based on the context of what you are looking at on the websites and pages you visit. Even if you opt out of interest-based ads you will still receive these non-personalized, contextual ads.

4. Your California Privacy Rights
The CCPA provides California consumers (residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information including:

  • The right to know about personal information we collect about you and how it is used and disclosed
  • The right to delete personal information (with some exceptions)
  • The right to correct inaccurate personal information
  • The right to opt-out of the sale and sharing of your personal information for cross-context advertising
  • In some cases, the right to limit the use or disclosure of sensitive personal information
  • The right to non-discrimination for exercising your CCPA rights

(A) Your Right to Know
You have the right to know what personal information we have collected about you. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (as described below), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information
  • The categories of sources from which the personal information has been collected
  • The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we disclose your personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you
  • If we sold your personal information or shared your personal information for cross-context behavioral advertising, the categories of personal information we have sold or shared.

(B) Your Right to Delete
You have the right to request that we delete personal information that we have collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and verify your identity, we will review the request to see if an exception applies that allows us to retain some or all your information. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

  • Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  • Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  • Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  • Exercise free speech or to ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  • Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  • Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information's deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research's achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  • Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  • Comply with a legal obligation.
  • Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

We will delete or deidentify personal information not subject to one of these exceptions from our records and will direct our service providers to take similar action. If an exception applies, we will provide you information about that exception.

(C) Your Right to Correct
You have the right to correct inaccurate personal information that we maintain about you. In some cases, we may ask that you provide additional documentation to support your request. Once we receive your request and verify your identity, we may deny your request to correct personal information if we believe that the personal information that we maintain is more likely than not accurate based upon the totality of the circumstances.

(D) Your Right to Opt Out of Sales and Sharing for Cross-Context Behavioral Advertising
We do not sell or share personal information of consumers who we know are younger than 16 years of age.

Some of our websites or mobile apps use cookies or other tracking technologies which may be considered a sale under the CCPA or may be used for cross-context behavioral advertising. Apart from our websites, we may disclose or otherwise make your data available to others in a manner that is considered a sale under the CCPA.

You may request that we stop selling and sharing your personal information (“opt-out”). With some exceptions, we cannot sell your personal information after we receive your opt-out request unless you later provide authorization allowing us to do so again. We must wait at least 12 months before asking you to opt back into the sale of your personal information.

(E) Your Right to Limit Use of Your Sensitive Personal Information
In some cases, you have the right to limit use of your precise-geolocation information, which is considered sensitive personal information under the CCPA.

We do not provide a right to limit your sensitive personal information in cases where we are permitted to use such data under the CCPA without offering you the right to limit your use.

(F) Right to Non-Discrimination
You have the right not to be discriminated against for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

5. How to Exercise Your CCPA Rights
(A) Your right to know, delete, or correct
To exercise your right to know, delete, or correct as described above, please submit a request by either:

  • Selecting the privacy right you wish to exercise on our privacy request form
  • Calling us at 1-800-432-6111

We will only use personal information provided in a consumer request to verify the request. We will not further disclose the personal information and will retain it only as necessary for the purpose of verification and to meet our legal obligations. We cannot fulfill your request if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information that is the subject of the request relates to you.

(B) Your right to opt-out of sales and sharing
To exercise the right to opt-out, you (or your authorized representative) may submit a request to us by visiting our privacy preference center.

Opt-Out Preference Signals
You may also opt out of the of sales or sharing on our websites through an opt-out preference signal. To process your request through an opt-out preference signal, you must use a browser supporting the preference signal. If you choose to use an opt-out preference signal, we will opt you out of sales and sharing in the context of cookies and tracking technologies from the browser for which you have the opt-out preference signal enabled.

(C) How to limit use of sensitive personal information
You may limit our use of precise geolocation information by utilizing our privacy request form. If you change your mind, you can opt back in at any time.

6. Who May Submit Requests?
Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf (an authorized agent), may make a request under the CCPA on another consumer’s behalf. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

Requests to know, correct or delete:

If you use an authorized agent to submit a request, we may require that the authorized agent provide us with proof that you gave the agent signed permission to submit the request. In addition, we may also require you to do either of the following: (1) verify your own identity directly with us; or (2) directly confirm with us that you have provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request on your behalf. These requirements of proof do not apply if the agent has a power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code.

We may deny a request from an authorized agent if the agent cannot meet the above requirements. Further, before responding to a request from an authorized agent, we will still require the authorized agent provide us with enough information so that we can verify your identity.

Requests to opt-out and limit sharing:

You may also use an authorized agent to exercise opt-out rights and to limit the use of sensitive personal information. In each case the agent must provide us with documentation demonstrating that you have provided signed permission to the agent to exercise these rights with us on your behalf. We may deny the request if we do not receive such proof.

7. How Often Can You Submit Requests?
With limited exceptions, you may only make a verifiable consumer request to know your personal information twice within a 12-month period.

8. How Do We Verify Requests?
Before fulfilling your request, we take steps to verify you are who you say you are or that you have authority to act upon someone else’s behalf. One way we verify you is through your account. If you do not provide your account number, we may request additional information that we need to verify you and, if you are submitting a request on behalf of someone else, to verify that you are permitted to act on that person’s behalf.

When we contact you to request verification information, please respond and provide the information that we have requested. Depending on the nature of the request you make, we may require you to verify your identity to either a "reasonable degree of certainty" or "high degree of certainty". This means that we need to match two or three pieces of information that we hold about you with information that you provide to us. In addition, we may ask for knowledge-based qualifiers during the verification process. This data we need to match or ask for you to provide could include, but is not limited to, email address, Loyalty ID, mailing address, phone number, date of last purchase and purchase amount.

In some cases, we may require you to sign a declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request or that you are authorized to make the request on behalf of someone else.

In addition to providing the information we need to verify you or your authority, you must provide us with enough information so that we can understand, evaluate, and respond to your request. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot confirm the personal information relates to you.

We will only use personal information provided in the request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make it.

9. CCPA Metrics Report
We have prepared a report on the status of CCPA privacy requests for the previous year. This report details the number of requests to know, requests to delete, requests to opt out of sale and sharing, requests to correct and requests to limit the use of sensitive personal information that we received, complied with, and denied as well as the mean number of days within which we responded to each privacy request.

10. Notice of Financial Incentive
Our VIC program provides you with discounts on eligible products and services and the opportunity to earn points (i.e., Fuel Points) that provide discounts on participating items and at participating gas stations when you shop in-store or on-line. Your use of the VIC program when you shop in-store and online enables us to select and personalize coupons, promotions, and other discounts or offers, based on what you buy in the stores and on e-commerce portals you may use. This Program is subject to termination at any time at our sole discretion.

Participation in our VIC program is voluntary. By signing up for our VIC program, you affirm that you are over the age of 16 and consent to the collection, use, sale, sharing, and retention of your personal information in connection with the program. Why we collect, how we collect, how we disclose, and how we protect your personal information are further described in our privacy notice. Our VIC program is valuable to us as it helps us to understand what matters to you, our customer. In determining the value of your information to us, we consider the profit generated from our product and service offerings that use personal information, which is reasonably related to the value provided to the consumer through personalized coupons, promotions, and other discounts or offers. As part of our VIC program, our most loyal customers save $742 per year on average.

If you wish to withdraw your consent and opt out of our VIC program, you can contact Harris Teeter’s Customer Relations Team by telephone at 1-800-432-6111.

  • Inferences

When we disclose or otherwise make available such information, we may do so to the following categories of third parties: adtech partners or vendors, social networks, internet service providers, technology vendors, analytic providers, third-party matching agents, and/or data brokers.
