Customer Data Policy

As your partner, Astro is in the business of supporting you. The Astro platform is designed to help the retailer compete with big box and online outlets. We are aligned with your best interests. That's why we will never sell your customer data. NEVER! In fact, when you use Astro to manage frequent buyer programs your data is more secure than ever. Astro stipulates that any customer information shared with a manufacturer per the terms of their frequent buyer program cannot be used to market products via any outlet other than you. As you know, this does not exist today with paper cards submitted for credit. Also, distributors do not have access to customer contact data via Astro as they do with paper cards.

Astro only provides customer information to manufacturers per the terms of their programs. That’s it! We do not sell customer data – Period! Our terms and conditions clearly state this, in our efforts to support all independent pet retailers.
