Information We Collect
We collect information which visitors provide. For example, users may provide us their e-mail addresses to request information, or send us their mailing addresses so we may send materials or information that visitors have requested. In this way, we may collect the following information about our visitors: name, title, business address and telephone number, product usage and attitudes, as well as preferences for content, numbers of visits and length of time spent on the Site. Visitors whose businesses are Core-Mark retail store clients can register for our eBusiness applications. Registered users may be asked to provide additional information about their businesses.
We use the information our visitors provide to respond to questions or requests regarding the Core-Mark group of companies (the “Core-Mark Companies”), our products and services, or our Site; to improve Site content; and to send visitors periodic mailings and/or e-mails or call visitors about Core-Mark services and products or upcoming events.
Some pages of our Site may not function properly if the cookies are turned off. Visitors should consult their web browser’s Help documentation for more information about how to turn cookies on and off for their browser.
In the course of ensuring network security and consistent service for all users, Core-Mark employs software programs to do such things as monitor network traffic, identify unauthorized access or access to nonpublic information, detect computer viruses and other software that might damage Core-Mark computer systems or the network, and monitor and tune the performance of the Core-Mark network. In the course of such monitoring, these programs may detect such information as e-mail headers, addresses from network packets, and other information. Information from these activities is used only for the purpose of maintaining the security and performance of Core-Mark’s networks and computer systems.
Use of Personal Information
The personal information we maintain will be held by Core-Mark and may be used by Core-Mark, other companies within the Core-Mark group (details of which are available on request), or Core-Mark’s agents, partners or licensees. We do not sell, exchange or otherwise distribute visitor information without visitors’ consent, except to the extent required by law, in accordance with visitors’ instructions, or as set out below
Agents and Service Providers.
* We sometimes contract with other companies and individuals to perform functions or services on our behalf, such as hosting this Site, sending e-mail messages, and making phone calls on our behalf. They may have access to personal information, such as addresses, needed to perform their functions, but are restricted from using it for purposes other than providing services for Core-Mark.
* As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets. In such transactions, Web site visitor information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Therefore, if either Core-Mark itself or substantially all of Core-Mark assets were acquired, visitor information may be one of the transferred assets.
All information gathered on our Site is securely stored within the Core-Mark-controlled database. The database is stored on servers secured behind a firewall and access to the servers is password-protected and is strictly limited. However, as effective as our security measures are, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that visitor information will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. We ask that visitors do their part, by maintaining strictly confidential any computer passwords and eBusiness usernames and passwords used to access the Internet or this Site.

This Site and all information collected through this Site is collected, stored, and processed in the United States and Canada.

Your request must be submitted in writing by e-mail at email@example.com or by mail at the address below. We may take a reasonable period of time to respond. If you request the deletion or change of inaccurate information on our system, such information may be retained for a period in our backup systems as a precaution against systems failures. Some information may be retained for longer periods as required by law, contract or auditing requirements.
