Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you are using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you are using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
Information Provided by Our Business Partners
Our advertising vendors and other partners may share with us the information they collect. For example:
- Our advertising vendors may share information with us regarding our ads on websites or apps where such ads run to measure and improve those ads, including information like whether clicks on ads led to purchases or a list of criteria to use in targeting ads.
- We may obtain information from our other partners, such as co-sponsors who we may occasionally partner with to run special contests or other co-branded promotions.
- We may obtain information from other commercially available sources such as data aggregators, marketing firms and public databases, to provide us with additional information about our existing consumers (this is known as "data appending"). This information may include name, demographic information, contact information, interests, and publicly-observed data, such as from social media and shopping behavior.

We may combine the information we collect through one or more of our online environments with information we collect through other online environments. We may also combine information collected through our online environments with information collected through our offline environments, as well as with information provided by our partners. We use this consolidated information to help us improve our online environments, products and services, communicate information to you, enhance our marketing and research activities and engage in any other uses described in the "How We Use Information We Collect" section below.
How We Use Information We Collect
Harland Clarke uses the information we collect to provide our products and services to you, improve our products and services, develop new products and services and protect ourselves and our consumers. We may also use your information to provide you order confirmation and shipment notification. Unless you ask us not to, we may also use your information to communicate with you about products, services, and promotions in the future.
Harland Clarke may provide your information to third party service providers who assist us in fulfilling your order, as well as to your financial institution for customer verification and fraud prevention purposes. All of our third party service providers are required by contract not to otherwise disclose your personal information, or use it for any purpose other than in strict accordance with our guidance and instructions. More information about the sharing of your information with third parties is found below in the When and Why Harland Clarke Discloses Your Information section.
If you place an order with us, the information we collect may be used to maintain your order history, provide you with access to some features of our online environments or offer you the benefits and privileges that are provided to past customers. This may include purchasing products or services, use of exclusive or personalized content or activities.
We may also use the information we collect for other legitimate business purposes, such as to:
- Send you notices and other information regarding our products and services (provided you choose to have such information sent to you);
- Respond to your inquiries or support requests;
- Invite you to participate in surveys regarding our products or services;

Some of our applications and mobile-optimized online environments may have location-based features. To deliver these features, we may access and use location data provided by your mobile device. Location information will be collected solely to deliver the requested feature, and it will not be further retained or stored by us.
We use common tools, such as cookies and similar technologies (discussed in the "Technical Information Collected Automatically" section above), to collect information about consumers' use of our online environments for purposes of enhancing their online experience and delivering more meaningful advertisements. Like many companies, we may also utilize third party advertising vendors and other partners to collect this information.
One way in which we deliver more meaningful advertisements is through a common form of online advertising known as "retargeting" or "remarketing." Retargeting works by serving ads on one site based on consumers' online activities on a different site. To do this, Harland Clarke or our advertising vendors may use a device ID, cookie or similar technology placed by us or the advertising vendor when you visit our online environments or third party websites or apps. The placing of these cookies or other technologies on your device may enable you to be identified across multiple websites and you should consult the privacy policies of our advertising vendors to understand how they collect and use your data.
