- ELIGIBILITY TO USE THE SERVICE; ACCOUNT CREATION
In order to access the Service, you have to “register” (create an “account”). A mobile phone is required to register and access to an internet connection while in-store is required to participate in the Program (i.e. redeem the coupons, offers and rewards). To create an account, and participate in the Program, you must be over the age of 13. If you are between the ages of 13 and 18, you may create an account only under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian who has read, understood and agreed, on your behalf and on his/her own behalf, to be bound by these Terms. Circle K/Couche-Tard reserves the right to verify your age and identity to grant you access to age-restricted offers in association with the Program which is described in further detail below. If you create an account, you will be asked to provide a mobile phone number where your access to the Program will be sent via SMS. This shall be deemed to be submitted by the Authorized Account Holder of the mobile phone number used to enter the Program. “Authorized Mobile Account Holder” of a mobile phone is defined as the natural person who is assigned to a cellular telephone number by a wireless carrier that is responsible for assigning cellular telephone numbers. You may participate in the Program ONLY using one (1) mobile phone number for which you are the Authorized Mobile Account Holder. Phone numbers from Wi-Fi texting apps are not supported and are not permitted to be used to participate in the Program. You may be required to provide proof that you are the Authorized Mobile Account Holder associated with the selected mobile phone number. By submitting a phone number, you represent and warrant that you are the Authorized Mobile Account Holder. You shall be responsible and liable to Circle K/Couche-Tard for any damages and other losses incurred by them as a result of your submission of any phone number for which you are not the Authorized Mobile Account Holder.
Any attempt by you to obtain more than one account by using multiple/different mobile phone numbers, identities, or any other methods will result in disqualification from the Program at Circle K/Couche-Tard’s discretion. Use of any automated system (including but not limited to, mobile phone numbers submitted using any robot, script, macro, or other automated service) to participate is prohibited and will result in the disqualification from the Program.
You agree not to allow access to this Program to anyone else and that you will be solely responsible for any activities or actions taken under your account, whether or not authorized by you. Please notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your account. We are not liable for any loss or damage from your failure to comply with these requirements. By creating an account, you consent to the use of: (i) electronic means to complete the Terms and to provide you with any notices given pursuant to the Terms; and (ii) electronic records to store information related to the Terms or your use of the Site.
You may delete your account at any time by contacting us at [email protected] and requesting your Circle K/Couche-Tard Coupons Program account be deleted.

You understand that unsubscribing to the Program will not terminate your consent to receive other kinds of text or email alerts from Circle K/Couche-Tard to which you may have subscribed. You must unsubscribe from each text or email program separately. You agree to promptly notify us if your phone number changes or you do not continue to own and control the device assigned by your carrier to the number you provided us by contacting us at [email protected] or by changing your Program subscription information within your account.
