- What personal information we collect from you;
- How we use your information and with whom we may share it;
- What choices are available to participants regarding collection, use and distribution of the information
- What types of security procedures are in place to protect from the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control
- How participants may correct any inaccuracies in the information.
We know how important your personal information is to you and we take our responsibility to safeguard any information you provide to us very seriously. To protect any personally identifiable information that we collect, we have instituted physical, electronic and managerial measures to prevent unauthorized access to your information or unauthorized disclosure of that information.
While we make every reasonable attempt to protect the personally identifiable information that you share with us, no transmission over the Internet is ever 100% secure, nor is information stored electronically 100% immune from attack, so we cannot guaranty the security of information you may provide to us.
Your Personal Information and the Irving Rewards Program
To better understand and serve the needs of our Participants, Irving collects both aggregate Participant data and personally identifiable information regarding Participants.

When you register to participate in the Irving Rewards program, Irving may collect the following personally identifiable information:
- Your first and last name.
- Your home address.
- Your e-mail address.
- Your phone number.
In order to provide you with the discounts, rewards, and other benefits associated with the Irving Rewards Program, Irving may collect limited information about your purchases when you use the Irving Rewards Card. Irving may collect the following information about purchases that you make using the Irving Rewards Card:
- The date and location of your purchase.
- The total dollar amount of your purchases on that visit.
- The Irving Rewards discount you earned from your purchase.
- The Irving Rewards discounts redeemed on each visit.
Irving may also collect other information about Participants from our third-party service providers and program partners.

When you agree to become an Irving Rewards program Participant, you agree that Irving may collect, use and retain such information.
Our Use of Your Information
Irving may use your personally identifiable information in several ways:
We will use the information to enable us to operate the Irving Rewards Program, manage your account, and provide Irving Rewards Program-related services to you.
We may send you promotional materials; we may ask you to participate in surveys; and we may track market trends to assess the effectiveness of our programs and promotions.
We may contact you by email, conventional mail, or telephone. In addition, we may enhance and/or merge personally identifiable information about our participants with data collected from other sources to use in direct and/or online marketing. Irving may provide aggregate, anonymous participant information to our program partners.
Irving may hire outside companies to provide services on our behalf (such as running promotions, conducting surveys, sending email, hosting the Website, or analyzing data). We may provide your personally identifiable information to these service providers so that they may perform such services. In addition, in order to enter a sweepstakes, contest or other promotion, we may require you (except as prohibited by law) to consent to the use of your personally identifiable information in our advertising and promotional materials.
We may also disclose your personally identifiable information if we believe that we are required to do so by law; to comply with legal process or governmental requests; to enforce our program Terms and Conditions; and/or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Irving, its Participants, program partners or the public. Irving may transfer or otherwise disclose your personal information in connection with a merger, sale, consolidation or other corporate change.
In addition, if you submit a letter or similar content to Irving or the Irving Rewards Website we may publish your letter along with your name or other information you submit.
