As part of our Loyalty program, we do provide discounts and financial incentives to individuals who enroll. Once you sign up for our Loyalty program, you can give us your Loyalty ID number at the cash register or online to get discounts on products you purchase and services we think you would be interested in based on your purchase history. You can also earn fuel points that give you discounts at participating gas stations. We select and personalize coupons, promotions, and other discounts or offers, based on what you buy and the stores and e-commerce portals you may use. Signing up for the program indicates your consent to the use or sale of information we need to identify the most relevant coupons, promotions, and other discounts or offers we present to you.
The information we have collected about our Loyalty program members enables us to deliver personalized offers and value to our customers, which helps us establish a relationship with our customers and is valued by Kroger as part of our focus on the customer experience. In determining the value of this data to Kroger, we consider the profit generated from the solutions or products that include personal information (as defined by CCPA), which is reasonably correlated to the value provided to the consumer through personalized coupons, promotions, and other discounts or offers. Our good faith estimate of the value to Kroger of each consumer’s personal information that forms the basis for offering the financial incentives or price or service difference can be found here.
Our core data analytics solutions primarily use anonymized customer data and are not included in the calculation above. Participation in these programs is voluntary. After joining our Loyalty program, if you wish to opt out of the Loyalty program or wish to opt out of the sale of your personal information to support the program, you can contact our customer contact center by telephone at 1-800-KROGERS (1-800-576-4377) for assistance.
