yes Program Participation Rules

Welcome to the yes Program and Fresh Rewards Program (collectively, the “Program”), owned and operated by Family Fare, LLC and its affiliates and subsidiaries (collectively, “Family Fare”). These Program Participation Rules (the “Rules”) govern your participation in the Program. You agree to be bound by these Rules, as they are amended from time to time, when you open a Program account (“Account”) or participate in the Program. In these Rules “you” and “your” refers to each customer who opens an Account. “We,” “us,” and “our” refers to Family Fare and the stores participating in the Program.

1. Participating Stores. The following stores participate in the Program:

• all D&W Fresh Market stores
• all Family Fare Supermarkets stores
• all VG’s Grocery stores
• all Family Fresh Market stores
• Forest Hills Foods
• all Dan’s Supermarkets stores
• all Quick Stop Fuel Centers associated with these participating stores

2. Program Description. The Program offers participating customers in-store savings on identified products sold at participating stores. We may also offer participating customers with other promotions, benefits, and rewards for shopping at participating stores from time to time. Your Account is not assignable.

3. Enrolling in the Program. You may enroll in the Program and register to obtain an Account and, if applicable, an associated Account card (“Card”) in a number of ways:

• at the check-out or at the Customer Service Counter at any participating store.
• clicking on the “Join now” link on a participating store’s website
• Following the “yes” link on the spartannash.com website

If you enroll online, you may print a paper copy of your Card on your home printer or you may designate a participating store where you may pick up your Card at the store’s Customer Service Counter. A Card is not required to participate in the Program.

You must be at least 18 years of age to have an Account. 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 Program, you may request at the Customer Service Counter that we issue him or her a Card that accesses your Account. You will be responsible for the use of the Account by that person. The Program is open to individuals only and may not be used by companies, businesses, charities, corporations, partnerships or any other entity.

To obtain the available in-store savings and/or to participate in other promotions and benefits we offer at participating stores as part of the Program, you may be required to present your Card, provide us with your phone number as it appears in your Account information, or otherwise give us the information required to look up your Account at check out. If you fail to provide us with such information at check out, you may not be able to receive in-store savings, and we will not be able to retroactively allow you do so for that transaction.

4. Linking Accounts. Cards, phone numbers or other information can be linked to a single Account. Family Fare will automatically link Cards at the household level based on a combination of last name and address. We will select a member of your household to designate as the “primary shopper.” In addition, any two or more customers, regardless of whether they are in the same household, can request at a participating store’s Customer Service Desk that their information be linked. To do this, the Program participants must be present and provide a picture ID and identify which Program participant will be considered the “primary shopper.” All transaction history attributable to each of the linked Accounts will be linked to the primary shopper’s Account and may be viewed by any Program participant linked to that Account. Your Account may only be in one linked relationship.

Any Program participant whose Account is linked to another Program participant may at any time request at a participating store’s Customer Service Desk that his or her information be unlinked from the other Program participant. If the primary shopper is delinked from the linked Account, we will designate another primary shopper for the linked Account.

The yes Program and Fresh Rewards Program are separate programs. However, if you have a Fresh Rewards Account and/or a yes Rewards Account, you may have your Accounts share the same household by linking the two Accounts, and you may use the Accounts interchangeably. Any digital coupons that you may upload to one Account may be used at any store participating in the Program.

Customers who request to link or unlink their Account must allow us up to 3 Business Days to implement the request. For purposes of these Rules, a “Business Day” is any day from Monday through Friday that a majority of the participating stores are open for business.

5. Keeping Information Current. You agree to submit and maintain accurate and current user information in connection with your Account. Such information includes name, address, email address, and telephone number. You can update your Account information by (i) accessing your Account through our website (ii) requesting an update at the Customer Service Counter at any participating store or (iii) calling us at 888-880-9371. For security reasons, we cannot accept changes by mail or e-mail.

6. Security of your Account. You are solely responsible for the security of your Account and your username and password to access your Account online. We will not be responsible for any unauthorized access to your Account. You should not share your Account information, Card or your username and password with anyone. If your Card is lost or stolen or you believe someone gained unauthorized access to your Account username or password, notify us as soon as possible at any participating store’s Customer Service Counter or by calling us at 888-880-9371 so we can close your Account and open a new Account in your name. We are not responsible for verifying the identity of persons using your Card or accessing your Account.

7. Privacy. At Family Fare we value the privacy of our customers. We do not sell or share your Personal Information to any third party outside Family Fare, except as provided in these Rules.

A. Information that We Collect About You. We may collect information about you in order to conduct our business and to provide products, services and other opportunities to our customers and website users, including the discounts and benefits associated with the Program. We use the data we collect to allow us to (i) analyze and monitor consumer and customer activity; (ii) support our products and services; (iii) promote products and services in which you may be interested; and (iv) develop a knowledge base regarding our customer and website users. The information we may collect includes Personal Information and Purchase Information. "Personal Information" includes:
  • Your name, address, email address, birth month and day, and phone number
  • Information that we collect as a part of the Program associated with your name, address, e-mail address or phone number.
  • Information we obtain from third parties for the purpose of data verification and supplementation as described in section 7E, below, which becomes associated with your name, address, email address or phone number.

"Purchase Information" includes information about your purchases that we obtain when you use your Account, including date and time of purchase, contents of purchase, store location and total dollar amount of purchase. The Program is separate from and will not access participating stores’ pharmacy records, which are maintained under a separate privacy policy in compliance with federal and state laws available at our Pharmacy counter or online. If you choose to, you can use your Account when making a purchase at the pharmacy counter and the Program will not record any details of the products that you have purchased.

When you agree to become a Program participant, you agree that we may collect, retain and use the information we collect as described in these Rules. You may request to see any of your Personal Information if it is retrievable in the ordinary course of business and if providing access does not impose an unreasonable burden. You may make such a request at any participating store’s Customer Service Counter or by calling us at 888-880-9371. We will mail the information to you at your address on file in your Account. Customers may correct or update their Personal Information online at a participating store’s website by clicking on the Program logo in the upper right hand corner of the home page to securely access their Account, by making a request at any participating store’s Customer Service Counter, or by calling us at 888-880-9371.

B. Uses of Personal Information. We may retain and use the Personal Information we collect about you in the conduct of our business. For example, we may use the information to: a) provide you the benefits offered through the Program; b) mail or email information to you about promotions, offers or services we think will be of interest to you unless you choose not to receive the information when you open your Program Account or at a later date by notifying us at any participating store’s Customer Service Counter or by calling us at 888-880-9371; c) return lost keys attached to your Card to the address associated with your Account in our records; d) monitor and evaluate the success of the Program.

C. Sharing of Personal Information. Except as noted in section 4, above, and sections 7E and 7F, below, we will not sell or share any Personal Information that we collect about you or provide it to any third party outside Family Fare without your consent. We may, however, give you the option to share your information with voluntary programs operated by third parties that coordinate with the Program. By electing to share such information with the organization that runs the coordinated program, you may qualify for benefits offered under the coordinated program. If you decide to share your information with a third party, please keep in mind that once your information has been shared it will be subject to the third party’s privacy and data collection practices.

D. Collection of General Aggregate Information. To improve the products and services we offer, we aggregate information about the purchases of all people who are Program participants. Aggregate information does not include any Personal Information. We use aggregate information (such as the amounts and types of groceries purchased by a typical Program participant) to gain a better understanding of our customers’ needs and preferences, to identify the effectiveness of promotions, and to provide new or better products and services to customers. We may also use such information to provide special offers to Program participants who have elected to receive such offers. If you’ve elected to receive such offers they may be mailed to your home, sent electronically, or given to you at the store. We may share aggregate information with third parties. For example, we may share some aggregate information with third parties in order to allow them to measure the effectiveness of programs and advertisements to Program participants.

E. Third Party Data Practices. Occasionally, we may use a third party to verify or supplement our data, including Personal Information. For example, we may receive updates from the National Change of Address service to ensure the accuracy of Program participant address information, or we may purchase a mailing list or other information about individuals interested in certain products and combine this information with information in our database. We may share our data with third parties who provide services to us, such as our auditors and accountants, our attorneys, or third parties who provide data entry of Program applications data, who conduct consumer research for us, or who mail materials or post advertisements for products and services in which you may be interested. If we use a third party to provide services that involve access to any Personal Information, it will be for limited purposes and in compliance with these privacy policies.

F. Disclosure of Information in Response to Court Order or Emergency. We may elect to disclose Personal Information about you without prior notice in response to law enforcement activity or other governmental request; to respond to subpoenas, court orders or administrative agency requests for information; to enforce our contract or property rights; to protect ourselves or others; or when required or otherwise permitted by law. All information that we collect may also be disclosed in connection with the proposed sale, transfer, or merger of the company or any division or business line of the company to which the information relates.

G. Website Privacy Policy. If you use a participating store’s website, or any other Family Fare website, you agree to be subject to the website privacy policy that appears on the site.

H. Data Security Practices. We use commercially reasonable means to protect the integrity of our systems and the confidentiality of collected data. For example, we operate secure data networks which utilize industry standard firewalls and password protection systems designed to prevent unauthorized access to our data systems. We cannot provide absolute assurances against, and will not be liable for, breaches of confidentiality due to system failures or unauthorized access by third parties.

8. Amendment to, and Termination of, these Rules. The Program is offered at the sole discretion of each participating store and Family Fare. We reserve the right to change, amend, temporarily suspend or terminate these Rules and the Program at any time at our sole discretion. Any change in these Rules will be immediately effective when it is posted on our participating stores’ websites and made available at our participating stores’ Customer Service Counters. You are responsible for keeping informed of changes to these Rules. If you misuse your Card or Account or otherwise abuse the Program, we may in our sole discretion immediately terminate, suspend, or limit your participation in the Program without prior notice to you. If we fail to exercise our rights under these Rules on any occasion we may elect to enforce those rights on any other occasion, at our sole discretion.

If you no longer wish to participate in the Program simply stop using your Account. By using your Account or the associated Card, you agree to be bound by these Rules as it may be amended from time to time.
