1. What is Personal Information?

Personal Information” is information that identifies or relates to a particular individual. Examples of  Personal Information include, among others, name, email address, phone number, payment information,  and online identifiers. When we combine Personal Information with other information, such as the  location of a nearby independently owned PostNet or Alphagraphics location or order details, we treat the  combined information as Personal Information. 

2. How We Collect Personal Information

1. Information that You Provide Us

When you visit our Franchised business centers, use our online Services, apply for jobs, or otherwise  contact us, we request certain information about you. The exact information we need to collect will  depend on the purpose of our interaction. Examples of this information include your name, email  address, phone number, street address, location, customer service experience, payment information, and  other information you choose to provide to us. If you apply to become a franchisee or apply for a job with  us, we also collect any information you provide to us during the application process. 


2. Information We Receive Automatically from You

We collect the following types of information automatically through your use of our online Services:

  • Cookies, Device Identifiers, and Similar technologies 

When you use or access our online Services, we and our service providers use cookies, device identifiers,  and similar technologies such as pixels, web beacons, and local storage to collect information about how  you use the Service. We process the information collected through such technologies to help operate  certain features of the Service, to enhance your experience through personalization, and to help us better  understand the features of the Service that you and other users are most interested in.  

Most browsers provide you with the ability to block, delete, or disable cookies, and your mobile device  may allow you to disable transmission of unique identifiers and location data. If you choose to reject  cookies or block device identifiers, some features of the Service may not be available or some  functionality may be limited or unavailable. Please review the help pages of your browser or mobile  device for assistance with changing your settings. 

We do not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals sent to us by your browser at this time. To learn more  about how DNT works, please visit

  • Analytics

To assist us with analyzing the use of our websites and apps through cookies and similar technologies, we use analytics services, including Google Analytics.  For more information on Google’s processing of your information, please see “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps.”  

  • Geolocation Data

The Services collect real-time information about the location of your device. 

  • Log File Information

When you use our online Services, our servers automatically record information, including your Internet  Protocol address (“IP Address”), browser type, referring URLs (e.g., the site you visited before coming to  our Service), domain names associated with your internet service provider, information on your  interaction with the Service, and other such information (collectively, “Log File Information”). 

We may also collect similar information from emails sent to you which then help us track which emails  are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. We use Log File Information to help secure the  online Services by identifying potential threats and vulnerabilities and in analyzing the effectiveness of  our Service to improve the Service’s function and content.  

  • Advertising

Our websites may ask whether you would like us to use behavior-based advertising tracking technology.  If you click “allow” or “accept” then we will allow third party behavior-based advertisers to place tracking  technology on our website. We use such companies to provide you with relevant advertising about our  products and services on our website, or on other websites.  

3. Information We Receive from Third Parties 

If you apply to work with us, we may collect information from other sources. For example, we may  conduct a background check using a third party vendor. 

3. How We Use Personal Information

We use Personal Information for the following purposes:

  • Providing our Services to you;
  • Request and coordinate services if you are one of our vendors;
  • Providing, analyzing, administering, improving, and securing our online Services; • Fulfillment/billing/delivery of orders you place, or responding to quote requests or other inquiries you submit to us or our independently owned franchisees in the U.S. and Canada (“Franchisees”); • Providing customer service;
  • Sending information and promotional materials;
  • Seeking your feedback on our products and services through surveys;
  • Responding to inquiries;
  • Process applications for employment (note that if you become an employee, information that we collect in that capacity will be governed by our separate employee privacy notice); • Protecting our rights or our property;
  • Meeting legal obligations; and
  • For other purposes related to the reasons for which you provide Personal Information.

To the extent we maintain and use Personal Information in a deidentified form, we will not attempt to  reidentify the information, except for the purpose of determining whether our deidentification processes  satisfy our legal obligations.

4. Disclosure of Personal Information

We do not sell your Personal Information. In addition to the specific situations discussed elsewhere in  this Privacy Policy, we may disclose Personal Information in the following situations:  

  • Our Service Providers, Franchisees, subsidiaries and affiliates. We employ service providers to  perform tasks on our behalf and to assist us in providing our Services. For example, we engage  third parties to provide administrative services, marketing, analytics services, web hosting,  customer service, and payment processing. If you place an order on our website or otherwise  initiate services from our website, we provide your information to our appropriate Franchisee(s)  in order to perform those services. We provide your information to our Franchisees in order to  send you information and promotional materials including that which you have requested from or  about such Franchisee or their services; if you wish not to be contacted by our Franchisees you  may utilize the ‘opt out’ feature in any email you receive. We also provide your information to our  subsidiaries and affiliates in connection with the operation of our business. We take  commercially reasonable steps to help ensure our service providers, Franchisees, subsidiaries  and affiliates provide at least the same level of protection for Personal Information as we do.
  • Companies Involved in Mergers and Acquisitions Transactions. If we sell or otherwise transfer  part or the whole of our business or assets to another organization (e.g., in the course of a  transaction like a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, or liquidation), any information  collected through the Service, including Personal Information, may be among the items sold or transferred, including at the negotiation stage.
  • Law Enforcement, Government Agencies, and Courts. We may disclose Personal Information at  the request of law enforcement or government agencies or in response to subpoenas, court  orders, or other legal process to establish, protect, or exercise our rights or to defend against a  legal claim or as otherwise required or allowed by law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety  of any other person. We may also disclose Personal Information to investigate or prevent a  violation by you of any contractual or other relationship with us or your illegal or harmful activity. 
  • Other Disclosures with Your Consent. We may ask if you would like us to share your Personal  Information with other unaffiliated third parties who are not described elsewhere in this Privacy  Policy.  

5. How We Protect the Confidentiality of Personal Information 

We use commercially reasonable safeguards, such as industry-standard encryption technology, to help  keep the information collected through our online Services (including credit card information) secure.  Despite these efforts to store Personal Information in a secure operating environment that is not  available to the public, we cannot guarantee the security of Personal Information during its transmission  or its storage on our systems. Further, while we attempt to ensure the integrity and security of Personal  Information, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third parties such as hackers  from illegally obtaining access to Personal Information. We do not represent or warrant that Personal  Information about you will be protected against, loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties. In the event  that we are required by law to inform you of a breach to your Personal Information we may notify you  electronically, in writing, or by telephone, if permitted to do so by law.

6. Other Websites and Services

We are not responsible for the practices employed by any third party websites or services linked to or  from our online Services or otherwise, including the information or content contained within them. A link  to a third party’s website should not be construed as an endorsement. We encourage you to investigate  and ask questions before disclosing Personal Information to third parties.
