Privacy Policy

TOPS Markets® (Tops) believes in the importance of protecting its customers' information. Tops values your business and the trust you place in us. To help you better understand how Customer Information (as defined below) is collected, used and protected at Tops, this Privacy Policy outlines: (a) our definition of Customer Information, (b) how Customer Information is collected, (c) how Customer Information is used, (d) how you may prevent your Customer Information from being collected, and (e) the measures we take to safeguard Customer Information.

Our primary reasons for collecting Customer Information are to help deliver greater value to you and to improve your shopping experience with us. For example, we may use Customer Information to tell you about products, services, special savings, coupons and discounts we believe may be of interest to you, and to advise you of important information such as product recalls.

What is Customer Information?

"Customer Information" is information that is obtained by Tops when our customers purchase a product or service in our stores, or when our customers interact with us as described in this Privacy Policy. Customer Information includes both generic information that does not contain any specific information about you, as well as Customer Identifiable Information which is information that identifies or is specific to you. Customer Identifiable Information typically includes your name, address, email address, and/or telephone number.

Generic information is information like sales data that does not contain any specific information about you or others ("Generic Information"). Since Generic Information cannot be linked to you or any other specific individual, it may be used by Tops or others for any purpose.

Customer Information, as defined in this Privacy Policy, does not include any of your pharmacy records. Your pharmacy records are kept separate and apart from other Customer Information. Importantly, all pharmacy records are kept and maintained in strict accordance with the privacy and confidentiality requirements mandated by federal and state law. Our privacy policy for pharmacy records is described in the Tops Markets Notice of Privacy Practices, which is available on our website or at any of our pharmacy locations.

Children

Our Website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. In compliance with the children's online privacy protection act, children under the age of 13 shall not provide any personal information to us through our website, through our apps, or otherwise. Tops does not knowingly collect personal information on children under the age of 13.

How is Customer Identifiable Information Collected?

Tops collects Customer Identifiable Information from various sources, including the following:

  • Information we receive when you use your TOPS BonusPlus®;
  • Information you give us on application forms, surveys, store kiosks, sweepstake entries, contests, and rebate submissions;
  • Information you provide to us over the phone, through the mail, or via email;
  • Information we collect through your browser when you visit our website and your browser interacts with our computer systems;
  • Information we collect through mobile applications distributed by Tops; and
  • Information provided to us by other companies that have collected information about you and that have the lawful right to give this information to us.

Mobile Devices

Tops provides mobile applications ("Apps") that can be downloaded to your mobile device. To provide meaningful notifications about our stores and products, these Apps may collect information about your real-time location. You may adjust the settings on your mobile device to allow or prevent the sharing of location information. We may share information collected through our Apps with third parties.

How is Customer Identifiable Information used?

In order to provide you with products and services we believe may meet your needs and interests, Tops discloses Customer Identifiable Information about you, your purchases and your shopping experiences with Tops to marketing service providers that are utilized by Tops to perform services such as sending a mail offer from us to you. Importantly, we require these marketing service providers to sign an agreement that prohibits them from using your Customer Identifiable Information for other purposes and/or from disclosing your Customer Identifiable Information to anyone else

Tops may also disclose Customer Identifiable Information to third party companies who accumulate and combine data to produce aggregated information that is not identifiable to you or any other specific individual ("Aggregated Information"). Importantly, we require these third party companies to sign an agreement that prohibits them from using your Customer Identifiable Information for other purposes and/or from disclosing your Customer Identifiable Information to anyone else. Aggregated Information, like Generic Information, cannot be linked to you or any other specific individual, and is therefore not covered by this Privacy Policy, and may be used by Tops or others for any purpose.

We may also provide your Customer Identifiable Information to a third party to complete your purchases. For example, if you use a credit or debit card to pay for your purchases at Tops your card number and transaction information will be shared with the payment processor or card issuer (credit or debit card information is only shared as necessary to complete the respective transaction). In addition, Tops may disclose Customer Identifiable Information as required by law, as required to protect the rights or safety of Tops or our customers, or in response to a specific law enforcement request. Tops may also disclose Customer Identifiable Information to its affiliates, and may transfer Customer Identifiable Information in connection with a sale of its business operations, reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture or other disposition of the assets or stock of (or membership interest in) Tops.
