Carl W. Herrmann Furs is an anti-spam company. We will not share your information with anyone.
It is Herrmann Furs’ policy to respect and protect the privacy of our customers and the users of Herrmann Furs’ website (hereinafter, the "Website"). Through this Privacy Statement, we want to reassure users of the Website that we will not sell, share, or rent user information to others in a manner different than as set forth in this Privacy Statement.
By accessing this Website, you agree to be bound by the Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement, please do not use this Website. Each time you use the Website, the current version of the Privacy Statement will apply. Accordingly, when you use the Webite, you should check the date of this Statement (which appears at the bottom) and review any changes since the last version.
We may provide personal identifying and account information in special cases such as enforcement of our Terms of Website Use, or as required by law or legal process to protect and defend the rights and safety of our Website and its users. This includes exchanging information with other companies for purposes of fraud and credit risk reduction.
Strong precautions are taken to protect the information of the users of our Website. When users submit sensitive information via the Website, that information is protected both online and off-line. We take credit card information security seriously and use a variety of technical solutions to make shopping safe at our Website. Furthermore, your information is encrypted and is protected utilizing the industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption software. While on a secure page, such as an order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to un-locked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also protect user information off-line. All of the information of our Website's users, including the sensitive information mentioned above, is maintained in a restricted section in our offices. Only those of our employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, our account or customer service representatives) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, our employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
IN NO EVENT SHALL HERRMANN FURS BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INDIRECT, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR ANY DAMAGES WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOSS OF USE, DATA, OR PROFITS, WITHOUT REGARD TO THE FORM OF ANY ACTION, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO CONTRACT, NEGLIGENCE, OR OTHER TORTIOUS ACTIONS, ARISING OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE USE, COPYING, OR DISPLAY OF THE CONTENTS OF THIS WEBSITE, EVEN IF HERRMANN FURS OR AN AUTHORIZED REPRESENTATIVE OF HERRMANN FURS HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
If you have any questions about the security at our Website, please send us an email.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time, we may request information from the users of the Website via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary, and the users of the Website have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as your name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level, etc.). We use such information to notify contest winners, award prizes, and for analyzing the Website traffic to improve the user's experience on the Website.
Special Offers, Account Updates and Opting Out
Our Website occasionally sends our customers and the users of the Website announcements and updates, which contain important information about the Website and service offerings, which we believe to be of value to our customers and users. In order to do this, we may enhance or merge the information we collect on the Website with data from third parties for purposes of marketing products or services to our customers and users.
We may communicate with the users of the Website via email, telephone, mail, or fax in order to provide requested services, content, product information, notification of special offers, or in regard to customer service issues relating to an account. The users of the Website are always given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their online information used for purposes not directly related to the Website at the point at which we ask for the information or when they receive an online requested promotional communication.
For example, our email messages have an "unsubscribe" feature for users of the Website who buy from us, but don't want to be notified about special offers in the future. Users can simply "Reply" back to the email message and type "unsubscribe" in the subject field. Upon receipt of the reply, we will remove that email address from our email list. If a user has more than one email address, he or she should include the other addresses as well to ensure proper updating of their account information.
Users of the Website can always update the personally identifying information that they have provided simply by accessing and updating their account information on the Website or by emailing us.
