You may have the option to link your Target Circle account to an account you have at a select partner. When you link your Target Circle account to your account at the partner, Target and the partner will share and use information as described at the time you link your accounts. Your Target Circle account and your account at the partner will no longer be linked and you will no longer receive the benefits of linked accounts if 1) your Target Circle account is closed, deleted or suspended; 2) you opt out of the Target Circle program; or 3) your Target Circle account and your account at the partner are unlinked by you, by Target or by the partner. Target may provide information to the partner about applicable items you return to Target after your Target Circle account is unlinked from your account at the partner. Target is not responsible for the partner’s products or services. Contact the applicable partner for the partner’s terms and conditions, including the partner’s terms related to linking your Target Circle account to your account at the partner.

These financial incentives are reasonably related to the value of the data you provide.
