Company is committed to protecting your privacy. You can visit most pages on our site without giving us any information about yourself, but sometimes we do need information to provide services that you request. This privacy statement explains Company’s data collection and use in those situations.
Company has a firm policy of protecting Personal Information of our customers. “Personal Information” is personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, home address, email address, and telephone number. Personal Data does not include “aggregated” or “de-identified” information that does not specifically identify an individual. Personal Information is only shared with your consent except for the specific purposes below, in accordance with all applicable laws.
What We Collect
We may collect Personal Information that you choose to provide to us on a voluntary basis. When we ask for your Personal Information, it is so we can provide a product or service to you and communicate with you about those products and services. For example, you can enroll and use the Parker’s Rewards Program, Parker’s Business Elite Program and/or PumpPal Debit Card (the “Programs”) by providing us with Personal Information. We may also operate a version of our website specifically designed to work with mobile devices. The mobile website or application may include a feature that uses geographic location information provided by your mobile device to identify stores in your vicinity.
Our website provides information about our stores, the Programs, and the products we sell. You do not need to provide us with any Personal Information if you simply want to browse through our website and learn more about our stores, our products and our services. Like many other websites, we may record information that your web browser routinely shares, such as your browser type, browser language, software and hardware attributes, the date and time of your visit, the website from which you came, the geographical location of the Internet Protocol address and the pages on the site that you visit. This will generally be anonymous data that we collect on an aggregate basis, which does not identify an individual. By using the site, you consent to the collection and use of this type of information.
In addition, we and our third-party partners and service providers may use various tracking technologies, including cookies, tracking pixels and web beacons to collect information about you when you interact with our site, including information about your browsing and purchasing behavior.

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. There is always a risk that information collected and/or displayed may be compromised or accessed notwithstanding the steps we take to secure your information. For example, a third party may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, or other users may abuse or misuse your Personal Information. Accordingly, you agree that you are providing such information at your own risk.
Furthermore, the Company will not be liable for disclosures of your Personal Information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized acts of third parties. We have undertaken commercially reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized internet access to visitor data retained in our servers, however, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, the Company cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or any information provided online, and you do so at your own risk. Users must accept all risks associated with any data transmission, including the risk that their Personal Information may be intercepted in transit.
Moreover, Company does not control information collected by third parties and, as such, shall not be responsible for the collection, usage and disclosure policies and practices (including the data security practices) of third parties.
