Thank You Card Policy
Purpose of Policy
The main purpose of Brookshire’s Thank You Card program is to thank and reward our customers for their patronage. This Thank You Card Policy (“Policy”) describes many of the benefits offered to our customers when enrolled in the Thank You Card program.
In addition, your privacy is important to us and we are committed to safeguarding your personally identifiable information from unauthorized use or disclosure. This Policy also describes how your personally identifiable information and other data may be collected and used by Brookshire Grocery Company, its affiliates, and agents (collectively, “Brookshire”), when you enroll in Brookshire’s Thank You Card program, either through this website or by submitting an application in person by visiting a Brookshire store, and when you use your Thank You Card at Brookshire stores.
Consent to Policy
You must be at least 18 years of age to enroll in the Thank You Card program. If you would like a member of your household who is at least 13 years of age but under 18 years of age to participate in the Thank You Card program, you may request that we issue him or her a Thank You Card that accesses your account and you will be responsible for the use of the card and account by that person. By enrolling or participating in our Thank You Card program and providing personally identifiable information to Brookshire, you are agreeing to the terms and practices set forth in this Policy and to the collection and use of the information described in this Policy. If you have any objections to this Policy, you should immediately discontinue use of your Thank You Card and request that any information submitted to Brookshire be deleted by completing and returning a change form. Change forms are available at the store office of any Brookshire store and may be returned to any store office.

The Information We Collect
When you sign up for our Thank You Card Program, use your Thank You Card at Brookshire stores or any Site, or contact Brookshire, we may collect certain personal information from you such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, or other information about you or your interests (collectively referred to as “Thank You Card Information”). This information does not include “aggregate information,” which is information Brookshire collects or receives about a group or category of persons or services, such as demographic or statistical information, or “de-identified information,” and from which Brookshire has removed any personal information. We may provide aggregate information or other data about general groups of shoppers, shopping trends, or sales data to other companies to help them understand the demographics of our customers.
We may use the information we collect, including your Thank You Card Information, to provide products and services that are useful to you, to create merchandising and promotional programs, to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user’s navigation on the Site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We also use this information, along with a record of your purchases, to offer savings awards and other promotions that are relevant to your purchase preferences. We may also use this information to give you personally tailored coupons, offers or other information that may be provided to us from other companies. These offers may be delivered to you in-store, at home, or online. However you have the right to “opt out” or choose if and how you prefer to receive them. You may “opt out” by checking the designated box on the application form and you will not receive offers linked to the Thank You Card program. To change your “opt out” preference, you may simply fill out and return a change form or change your preferences online at the Brookshire’s website. Change forms are available at the store office of any Brookshire store and may be returned to any store office. You may also change your “opt out” preference by notifying us using the contact information provided below.
Brookshire may share certain Thank You Card Information (name, address, telephone number, and email address) with our subsidiaries, affiliates, agents, representatives, and trusted business partners and their agents for the limited purpose of providing services or information to Brookshire or to our customers. We may also share this information with third parties in order to operate the Site or conduct Brookshire business, as well as respond to customer requests, concerns, or claims.
Brookshire may disclose your Thank You Card Information when required by law or legal process (including pursuant to court orders, subpoenas, interrogatories, or similar directive carrying the force of the law). We may disclose your Thank You Card Information if we believe that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to comply with applicable law, to protect the rights, property or safety of Brookshire, other Site users, our partners, affiliates, sponsors, providers, licensors, or merchants, to prevent harm or loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual unlawful activity.
However, we will not rent or sell your Thank You Card Information to any nonaffiliated company or outside parties, except in connection with the sale of a pharmacy or other business unit, or as set forth in this Policy.
How to Change or Delete Your Information
If you have submitted any information to us, and you would like to update, change, or delete that information at any time, you may fill out and return a change form. Change forms are available at the store office of any Brookshire store and may be returned to any store office. You may update, change, or delete your personal information online at brookshires.com or use the in-store kiosk. You may also update, change, or delete any information submitted to Brookshire by notifying us using the contact information provided below. Your information will be updated, changed, or deleted accordingly in a commercially reasonable time.
Retention of Application and Change Forms
Application and Change forms for the Thank You Card program received by us at Brookshire stores are not retained after they are processed into our Thank You Card data system. All Application and Change forms received are disposed of in accordance with current Brookshire policies regarding the disposal of confidential records.
Key Return Service
If your keys are lost, and your Thank You Card key tag has been affixed to your keys, they can be brought to any Brookshire store or they can be dropped in any U.S. Post Office mailbox and the Post Office will send the keys to our office in Tyler, Texas. We will attempt to notify you and return any lost keys received at our office or found in a Brookshire store that has a Thank You Card affixed thereto by contacting you or mailing the keys, postage prepaid by Brookshire, to the most current address on file in our Thank You Card data system. Any unclaimed keys, including keys returned to us by the Post Office or keys without a Thank You Card affixed, will be discarded after three (3) months.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To safeguard all information that we collect, we have instituted strict physical, electronic, and managerial policies and procedures to prevent unauthorized access, to maintain data accuracy and to ensure the appropriate use of all data. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is completely secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
