Health Policy

Health Data Privacy Policy

At Target, we want you to know how we collect, use, share, and protect information about you, including information that may be considered consumer health data (“health data”) as defined by some state laws. By interacting with Target through our stores, websites, mobile application(s), products, and services, you consent to the use of health data that is collected or submitted as described in this privacy policy. As required by law, Target will obtain additional consent for collecting, using, sharing, or selling your health data. We may change or add to this privacy policy, so we encourage you to review it periodically. For more information on how Target handles information about you, please see our Privacy Policy.

Types of Health Data Collected

Categories of health data may include:

  • Information about your health-related conditions, symptoms, status, diagnoses, testing, or treatments (e.g., purchase of certain health-related items that may identify such information)
  • Measurements of bodily functions, vital signs, or characteristics
  • Information that could identify your attempt to acquire or receive health care services or products (e.g., search on Target website for certain health-related products or in-store health services provided by third parties)
  • Precise location information that may indicate your attempt to acquire or receive health services or products (e.g., when you use the Target mobile application to find certain health-related products or in-store health services provided by third parties)
  • Other information that may be used to infer or derive data related to the above or other health information.

How is Health Data Collected?

Categories of sources from which health data is collected include:

  • From you directly
  • From your interactions with our products and services
  • From third parties
  • From publicly available sources

How is Health Data Used?

Health data we collect is used for a variety of purposes as described in our Privacy Policy to the extent permitted by applicable state laws. We primarily collect and use health data as reasonably necessary for product and service fulfillment (e.g., fulfill orders, manage returns/exchanges, guest service, registry services, web/mobile app features) and internal operations essential to supporting those activities (e.g., improving products and services, analyzing our performance, inventory management, conducting research and development). We also collect and use health data as reasonably necessary for legal compliance, business transfers, and prevention of fraud and other harm.

As required, we will obtain your consent for additional purposes for collecting and using your health data such as marketing or guest surveys. Note that you may still receive marketing that includes health-related content as marketing may be based on a variety of factors unrelated to your individual health data (e.g., geography, season, context of site/page, demographic information).

Target or third parties may collect personal information over time and across different websites/online services when consumers use Target’s website/online services for advertising purposes. To the extent health data (as defined by applicable state laws) is included in this personal information, it will not be collected or shared unless your consent is obtained.

How Is Health Data Shared?

We may share each of the categories of consumer health data described above with the categories of third parties below. As required by law, we will obtain your consent to share health data with third parties if it is not for a purpose considered reasonably necessary or otherwise permitted by law.

- Target Subsidiaries and Affiliates—Target Corporation and its associated subsidiaries and affiliates own and operate Target stores, websites, mobile application(s), and issues the Target Debit Card. Target Corporation subsidiaries and affiliates also include Shipt, Inc.

- Service Providers—companies that provide support services to us who may need information about you, including health data, in order to perform their functions (e.g., product and service fulfillment activities)

- Third Parties

  • Business Partners—e.g., registry and shopping list partners
  • Advertising Networks—e.g., entities supporting online advertising activities
  • Operational and Technology Support—e.g., payment processors, internet service providers, data analytics providers, operating systems and platforms
