13. The Zipthru® card is a cashless payment solution that provides a convenient option to paying cash. You fund your account with a specific dollar value. This dollar value is a pre-payment for purchases in your cafes, company stores, and other locations at your site that accept the Zipthru® card. Your card balance does not accrue interest, dividends or any other earnings on funds deposited to your account. The value of your card account is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC).

14. We reserve the right not to accept any Zipthru® card or limit use of a Zipthru® card if we reasonably believe that the use is unauthorized, fraudulent or otherwise unlawful.

15. You can fund your account with a dollar value by using a credit card or cash by visiting your local café management or by going on-line to the Zipthru® Site listed on the back of your card. You may not load more than $100 at a single time. The minimum amount that can be funded is $10 and the maximum amount that can be held on your account is $250. We may change the minimum and maximum amounts at any time by notifying you at the café, by e-mail when you fund your account, by phone when you call, or on the Zipthru® Site. Such a change shall not constitute an amendment to this agreement. All amounts loaded and maintained on your Zipthru® card are denominated in U.S. dollars.

16. For your convenience, you can take advantage of the auto-load feature of your Zipthru® card. By linking a credit card to your Zipthru® account, you can reload a dollar value onto your account whenever you like. You can set this feature up when you activate your account, through the Zipthru® Site. You can set up a specific date to fund your account, the frequency you want funds loaded to your account, or a minimum balance threshold that indicates when more funds should be added. Your credit card will be billed according to the schedule and amount you have selected. An automated e-mail will be sent after each Auto-Load purchase to notify you of the account activity. You may change your auto-reload preferences at any time; however, changes may take up to twenty-four (24) hours to take effect. You may discontinue the auto-reload feature at any time online at the Zipthru® Site. You must disable this feature at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the next scheduled reload. Once a dollar value is loaded, there is no way that the transaction can be reversed.

17. There are no fees associated with the distribution, activation or use of your Zipthru® card.

18. Treat your card like cash. Because you utilize your Zipthru card like cash, you are responsible for all transactions associated with your card, including unauthorized transactions. If you have questions regarding your transaction history or account accuracy, then please contact your local Compass management or the Zipthru support line or Zipthru Site. We shall have no liability for transaction discrepancies unless you provide us notice within sixty (60) days of the date of the transaction in question. If your card is lost or stolen, the card can be replaced and the remaining balance at the time of your call can be transferred to the new card. Upon notification of a lost or stolen card, we will freeze the remaining balance on your account immediately; however, we are not responsible for lost or stolen Zipthru cards or any transactions that occur on a lost or stolen card.

19. Your account and membership may be terminated upon your termination of employment with Compass’s food service client. Upon any event of termination of your account and membership, a refund will be issued to you for unused balances in your account; provided, however, that unused funding issued to your account by Compass as a result of special promotions or rewards will not be refunded to you. Zipthru® Rewards Program

20. As a user of the Software, you may be eligible to participate in the Zipthru® Rewards Program (the “Rewards Program”), which is a rewards program of Compass. As a member of the Rewards Program, you are eligible to earn credits (“Credits”) for your qualifying purchases at participating stores. You may redeem your Credits for rewards that Compass establishes from time-to-time (“Rewards”). Compass has sole discretion to determine the number of Credits you earn for a purchase, which purchases qualify for Credits, which stores participate in the Rewards Program and the number of Credits required for a Reward. No purchase is necessary to enroll as a member of the Rewards Program. However, Credits are only earned when you make a qualifying purchase at a participating store. To earn Credits for a purchase, you must present your Rewards Program membership card at the time of sale. Credits and/or Rewards Program membership cards cannot be transferred, purchased, sold or traded. Credits earned cannot be pooled or shared. Credits cannot be earned on purchases made before joining the Rewards Program or on the purchase of gift cards or charitable items. Credits are not redeemable for cash or store credit. Compass is not responsible for Rewards lost in the mail or e-mail, or not received due to failure to update the member address information on the account. To update your address and other account information, you may do so on the Zipthru Site.

21. Membership in the Rewards Program is limited to residents of the United States. Corporations, groups and other entities are not eligible to become members or to earn Credits or Rewards. Compass reserves the right to void member accounts, Credits and Rewards to any person(s) who have wrongfully earned Credits via deception, forgery or other abuses of the Rewards Program. There may be only one Rewards Program membership card per person.

22. Compass may, at its sole discretion, alter, limit or modify the Rewards Program rules, including the Credit earning structure, Rewards, Reward levels or any other feature of the Rewards Program, at any time without notice.

23. Compass may terminate the Rewards Program at any time at its sole discretion without notice. Compass may terminate your membership in the Rewards Program at any time at its sole discretion without notice. You may terminate your membership in the Rewards Program by making your request by phone or in person to your local Compass café management.

24. Financial Disclaimers. Your Rewards Program balance does not accrue interest, dividends or any other earnings on Credits in your account. The value of your Rewards account is not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). We are not responsible for lost or stolen Rewards Program cards or any transactions that occur on a lost or stolen card. Your account and membership in the Rewards Program may be terminated upon your termination of employment with Compass’s food service client. All Credits remaining in your Zipthru® Rewards account upon termination of your account or membership may be forfeited. Zipthru® Catering and Personal Meals Solution

25. The Zipthru® catering and personal meals solution provides a convenient, web-based method for submitting catering and/or personal meal orders from your computer or mobile device. Using the Site and Software, you select your food order, schedule delivery or pickup, and pay for your order using a credit card. For your convenience, other means of payment may be enabled by your employer, or Compass’s food service client.

26. When you submit an order, the Site will provide you with a cut-off time for making changes to such order (“Change Cut-Off”). If you need to make a change to your food order, delivery location or time, or your method of payment prior to the given Change Cut-Off time, you may make the change through the Site. If you encounter an issue with your food order, delivery, or payment after the established Change Cut-Off time, then please contact your local Compass food service management directly and as early as possible.

Throughout this Privacy Statement, the word Customer is used interchangeably with “you” and “your” in order to refer to you. This Privacy Statement tells you about the information collected from you when you use the Software in order to obtain Products from Compass, how that information is used, and what options you have in connection with this information.

28. Your Consent to Collection and Use of Information; Modification of this Privacy Statement; Method of Opt-Out.

29. Types of Information We May Collect. “Personally Identifiable Information” is information about you that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as your name and address and other pertinent information. “Transactional Information” is the information the Compass needs to fulfill your Product order. “Aggregate Information” is statistical information collected from you and other Customers that informs us how Customers are using the Software and any trends in the purchasing of Products.

30. Collection and Use of Information in Different Situations. The type of information we collect and use depends upon your particular situation, which will differ, depending upon how you are using the Software to obtain the Products, as follows: a. Registration. Registration of your identity may be required for us to deliver some Products and/or Services to you. If you choose to register, then we collect from you the following information: (i) Personally Identifiable Information: We may collect your name, complete street address, telephone number, e-mail address, a username and password selected by you, and other pertinent information. We never collect your social security number. (ii) Transactional Information: We collect the information about the Compass Products you are ordering identified by location, plus your other instructions, which are stored by the Software. If you choose to pay for your order by a method other than by cash at the point of sale, then we will also collect information necessary for credit or debit card payment or payment by other special methods, such as a prepaid account card, promotional gift certificate, corporate billing account or purchase order. (iii) Optional Personal Information: We may collect information that identifies you personally when you submit comments or questions to Compass or to us. We may also give you the opportunity to furnish additional Personal Information about yourself such as your Product preferences. Providing this additional Personal Information is completely voluntary, and when the Software requests such information, you will be given the choice to opt-in, or not to furnish this additional information. b. Option Not to Register. If the Software offers you the option to register your identity and you choose NOT to register your identity when placing your order, then unless we advise you otherwise, we will collect only Transactional Information, and not any of the Personally Identifiable Information described above under the Registration Option. If you are not physically located at the point of Product sale when placing your order, you may be required to furnish credit or debit card payment information or payment information for other special methods, such as a prepaid account card or a promotional gift certificate or a corporate billing account or purchase order at the time of making the order (whether or not you are planning to pay cash at point of sale) in order to secure your timely performance of your obligation as Customer to pick up and pay for your order. c. Aggregate Information. When you access the Software, we collect Aggregate Information about you and your use of the Software, which is implemented through one or more private intranet sites operated by Supplier or Compass, and in some cases, by your access to the Sites with your browser via the Internet, from remote locations at home or at work using a computer or mobile device. In addition to your page view activity within the Site, we may collect site traffic statistics on your browser and operating system type, and entry points and exit points from referring domains. When you surf the web, your computer or mobile device is automatically assigned an IP address (and for mobile devices, a “care-of address”), which is automatically logged by the Site when you login to our servers. This traffic information and the purchases that result from referrals is aggregated, and not tied to individual Product orders. This means that, without correlation to other sources of information, this Aggregate Information will not generally serve to personally identify you. We may store and compile, publish, report, sell or otherwise externally disclose or use any Aggregate Information that does not personally identify you. If we do correlate any Aggregate Information to your identity for our internal purposes, our use and disclosure of will be subject to all the same restrictions upon information about you described in Paragraph 30 of this Privacy Statement. d. Cookies. Cookies are small text files that a web server can create and place on a user’s computer when not prevented by preference settings in the user’s browser. A cookie does not read content or information on the user’s computer, but the server originally placing it can subsequently retrieve the contents of the cookie itself, including information on other websites visited in the meantime. We may use session cookies to enhance navigation within the Site during the session of your visit to the Site, but these cookies do not survive the end of your visit, and thus provide us no information about other websites visited between visits to the Site. You may adjust your remote browser not to accept cookies but in some cases the Software or Site may function less effectively or deny access to you.

31. Restricted Use of Information About You. We use, sell, or disclose information about you (Personally Identifiable Information, Aggregated Information and Other Personal Information) only as disclosed in this Privacy Statement: a. Disclosure of Personal Identifiable Information. We do not sell or externally disclose Personal Identifiable Information about any Customer of Compass to any other person or entity except to Compass, unless: (i) The Customer consents to such sale or disclosure; (ii) It is required by law or in response to lawful subpoena or court order; (iii) It is required to enforce our collection rights or defend property of ours, of our Compass, or of Customers of Compass; or (iv) If we believe in good faith that disclosure without delay is required to reduce the risk of death or grave personal injury. b. Transactional Information. We and Compass may use your Transactional Information to complete the processing of your order of Compass Product, the processing of payments for your order, and to provide you reports and summaries of Product you have purchased. c. Internal Analysis and Promotion. We and Compass may use information about you for our own internal business, marketing and promotional analysis, and may outsource such internal activity to third party agents who agree to comply with the terms of this Privacy Statement. d. Direct Communication with You for Marketing and Promotion; Opt-Out. We and Compass may use information about you to communicate directly with you for marketing and promotion, and may outsource such marketing and promotion activity to third party agents who agree to comply with the terms of this Privacy Statement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if you do not wish to receive direct communication from us, from Compass, or from our agents for marketing and promotion purposes, you may Opt-Out in the manner provided in Paragraph 28 of this Privacy Statement.

32. Access. If you have exercised the Registration Option described in Paragraph 30.a of this Privacy Statement, you may view, change or delete information about you in your personal account with Compass by logging into Site and following the instructions. You are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your personal account and password and for restricting access to your computer and personal account, and you accept full responsibility for all activities that occur under your personal account or password. Compass reserves the right to terminate your personal account at any time and for any or no reason. 33. Security. Whereas perfect security is not achievable, we have conducted a risk assessment process, and have implemented security precautions commensurate with that risk, to protect the Personally- Identifiable Information about you from unauthorized access or misuse. We have implemented an industry-standard secure website, using Secure Socket Layers (“SSL”) to construct a secure pipe between your browser and the Site, following your authentication of the Site certificate. The password you select for yourself under the Registered Option should have at least eight characters and include both alphabetic and numeric data.
