Security & Privacy
Shades Of Home is secured with the highest level of authentication. Our website security is further increased through regular activity monitoring, and security updates.
Can I securely pay using Shopify?
Yes we are Verified by Shopify! Verification of identity increases customer trust because it creates a higher level of confidence that a company is who they say they are. You can rest assured that we have taken the extra steps to provide additional evidence of our identity. This helps our customers shop with confidence.
How do you use my contact information?
We request your email address so that we can email you an order confirmation. We request your phone number to contact you in case we need to give you an order update. We guarantee that we will never rent or sell your contact information to anybody, for anything.
1. What Information We Collect When you visit our Web site, Shades Of Home collects basic information regarding user behavior, and does not collect information such as your financial status, sexual orientation, and other sensitive categories. The information that we collect includes which pages are visited, how users navigate our website, the types of products purchased, and any feedback voluntarily supplied from our visitors. We then aggregate this information with volumes of other pieces of information to improve our site for you.
Personal Account Information When you create an account with us, you provide to us such personal information as: first and last name, billing address, shipping address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card account number, and the names of items you purchase from us. We collect this information on the pages where you create your account and at other pages where you sign up for our services.
Newsletter/Sales Alerts Subscription By signing up to our Sales Alerts Newsletter you permit Shades Of Home to send you email alerts of our upcoming sales and specials. Your information will not be sold, rented or leased to third parties. You can opt out of receiving these alerts by following the opt out instructions in these emails. 2. How We Use It Based on this information given on your account, Shades Of Home fills, ships, and provides you with information about your order (i.e., whether your order has been received, processed, or shipped). We ask for your phone number (but this is not required) in the event that our service representatives can’t reach you by email. We use your mailing address not only to ship you orders, but also to tell you about special offers, products, or events we think will interest you (as we do by e-mail). If you would like to opt out of receiving ground mail offers from us please email us and in the subject line write: “full name: Opt out of ground mail advertising”. Credit card information is used to bill you for products you have ordered and to track sales. 3. Whom We Share That Information With - Credit Card Processing and Security All your order information (i.e., your name, address, and credit card number) is encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology. We use this SSL technology to prevent such information from being intercepted and read as it is transmitted over the Internet. The encrypted data goes to a secure site where your information is stored on restricted-access computers located at restricted-access sites. While we make every effort to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information. To ensure that your information is even more secure, once we receive your credit card information, we store it on a server that isn’t accessible from the Internet. We train all of our employees in how to best safeguard your confidential information. Credit card transactions are handled by a third-party financial institution, which receives the credit card number and other personal identifying information only to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions. If you feel more comfortable doing so, you are welcome to call in your credit card information and complete your purchase by telephone. Or you can pay by check, and the product will be shipped once your check has cleared. - Advertiser Links Shades Of Home does work with certain advertisers who require that we disclose information about their customers who visit their Web site through the linkage from our Web site.
