The company says it has taken the steps necessary to ensure customers can obtain accurate information about their personal information, including by “clarifying that we do not share personal information with third parties.”
The company has also released a “clear and unambiguous statement” that Starbucks does not “share personal information.”
The new policy, which takes effect July 1, does not include any other information, according the blog post, which was written by the company’s general counsel, Chris Dufault.
Starbucks says the policy is the first to offer consumers the ability to control who can access their information.
Starbuck also offers its own privacy statement for its online store.
The blog post states:”We have also taken steps to clarify that we don’t share personal data with third party entities.
We are always seeking ways to make our online services easier for customers and make our products better for our customers.”
In other words, if you’re using Starbucks’ service to shop, you won’t see any of the Starbucks’ shopping information.
You won’t be able to find out how many items are in stock, or the number of places to buy products, the blog notes.
Last summer, it was revealed that the coffee chain, which owns about 50 stores, used cookies to track customers’ location on its website.
The company has said that cookies are used to help improve its website and that its cookies do not identify a customer’s specific location.
Earlier this month, Starbucks agreed to a settlement with the FTC over allegations that it misled consumers about the health benefits of its drinks and other products.
In the settlement, the company agreed to make its cookies optional on its sites and to disclose the names and addresses of people who had previously registered to use its services.
