Notice of Financial Incentive
Starbucks Rewards is one way in which Starbucks endeavors to reward and thank loyal customers for patronizing our business and purchasing Starbucks products. Starbucks Rewards members opt in by signing up for Rewards online or through the Starbucks App and are able to earn and accumulate "Stars" that can be redeemed for Starbucks Rewards benefits at participating Starbucks stores. Starbucks collects and uses the personal information described above, including information you voluntarily provide us (such as your name and email), information we collect automatically, and information from other sources to operate the Starbucks Rewards program, including to send you promotions, content, and special offers and the other uses described in this Privacy Statement. Starbucks does not assign monetary value for the information we collect through the Starbucks Rewards program when sending email communications. You may opt out of receiving commercial email communications at any time by adjusting your Starbucks online account settings as described in How to Manage Your Account Settings, or by clicking the “unsubscribe” link included within any commercial email we send you. Participation in Starbucks Rewards is voluntary, and you may withdraw from the Starbucks Rewards program by visiting the Account section in the Starbucks iOS App, by requesting deletion of your information by filling out this form, or by calling Starbucks customer service. Based on our reasonable and good faith estimate, we receive value from Starbucks Rewards in increased customer loyalty and patronage, though any value will vary by Starbucks Rewards member depending on purchases made, which offers a member takes advantage of, and many other factors.
