Thank you for using the Markit Services! We are committed to providing you the best online shopping and
how that information is used, under what circumstances we share information, and the choices you can
defined in the Terms of Service) through a browser, a mobile application, or any other method.
Information we collect
1. Information you provide to us or allow others to provide to us
At various points in the Markit experience, you may provide us with information about yourself. For
example, when you create an account through the Services, you provide us with personal information like
your name, email address, age (for Tobacco orders, where available) and phone number. And if you place
an order through the Services, we collect information including your address details and the details of
your order. Your account information may be updated or corrected by accessing your account settings.
If you log into the Services through a third-party service, both we and that third-party may receive
some information about you and your use of the services. For example, if you choose to log into the
Services with your Facebook account, we may receive information from Facebook, such as your name, e-mail
address, public profile information, and information about your contacts. We may also offer social
sharing tools (such as the Facebook “Like” button) that let you share actions on the Services with other
websites and vice versa. In those cases, the providers of those tools may receive information about you
when you use those tools. You should check the privacy policies of these third party services and your
settings there for more information.
If you wish to invite your friends and contacts to use the Services, we will give you the option of
either entering in their contact information manually or importing it from your address books on other
third party services. In both cases, we will store this information for the sole purposes of allowing
you to send your friends referral offers, for determining whether your friends use the Services after a
referral is sent, and to remind your friends of the referral sent on your behalf.
Our partners may let us collect information about use of their sites/apps or share such information with
us. For example, if you use a Markit button or widget on another site or app, we may receive information
about your use of that button or widget and the third-party site/app.

Driver(s) to your location. In order to make this work, we need to share information about you and your
order with the other parties who help enable the service. This includes, for example, the Picker(s) who
pick you order and Driver(s) who deliver your order, the payment processing partner(s) that we use to
validate and charge your card, and the retail partner(s) from whom you are purchasing goods. To be
clear, only our payment processing partner(s) receive credit card information.

information to better tailor our services to you). For the purposes of this processing or provision of
services, we may share your information with them under appropriate confidentiality provisions.

necessary to (a) comply with applicable laws, regulations, legal process, or requests from law
enforcement or regulatory authorities, (b) prevent, detect, or otherwise handle fraud, security, or
