PRIVACY POLICY

The Hollins University Bookstore is committed to protecting your privacy. We have established this Privacy Policy to help you better understand the manner in which we collect and use your information and the efforts we use to protect it. Please note that this policy is for Hollins University Bookstore and does not apply to other sites that you may link to from our site. Please check the privacy policies on those sites for more information. This site is not targeted for children under 13 years of age.

The following information is collected from the consumer for online orders:

Name

Address

Telephone Number

E-Mail Address

Payment Information

For online orders shipped to other than the cardholder’s billing address, the personal data collected on the shipping recipient is:

Name

Address

Telephone Number

We partner with third party suppliers to provide certain products to our customers. When necessary, we will furnish third party suppliers with information such as customer name, address, telephone number and/or e-mail address in order to fulfill the online order.

Hollins University has gone to great lengths to protect the security and validity of your credit card transaction. Our order forms are encrypted by our secure server to guarantee that the information can be read by us only. Your online shopping and credit card transactions are secure. We use Secure Socket Layering (SSL) to encrypt your sensitive data. SSL is the industry standard encryption. You will see the “http://” change to “https://” in the url when you begin to check out to let you know you are shopping securely. We use the Woocommerce platform for our shopping cart.

There are a couple of ways to tell if the information you are receiving is coming from a secure server.

1. Check the security icon. Most browsers use padlock (Microsoft Internet Explorer). An unbroken emblem indicates a secure browser.

2. Check the URL field of your browser. With a secured server the address will begin with https:// instead of the usual http://.

If you have a question or comment about this Privacy Policy, your online order or the contents of this web site, please contact the bookstore.
