Protecting your privacy is important to us. We strive to keep your personal information confidential. By ensuring that you are aware of and understand the Shelter Privacy Policy, we can provide you with better service. Please take a moment to read the following policy to learn how we handle your personal information.

 

Why We Collect Personal Information


Shelter Furniture collects and uses your personal information to give you superior customer service, to provide you with convenient access to our products and services, and to make a wider range available to you. In addition, at your option, your personal information can be used to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, special offers, and other information we think you’d like to hear about.

 

How We Collect Personal Information


We collect information about you in a few ways. For example, we might ask for your contact information when you correspond with us or call us to make a purchase.

Shelter Furniture works with other companies that help us provide products and services to you, and we may provide your personal information to these companies. For example, we give shipping companies this information so they can deliver your products efficiently. The information they receive is for shipping and delivery purposes only, and we require that the companies safeguard your personal information in accordance with Shelter’s policies.

 

How We Protect Your Personal Information


Shelter Furniture safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.

 

Collecting Other Personal Information

When you browse shelterfurniture.ca, you are able to do so anonymously. Generally, we don’t collect personal information when you browse – not even your email address. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.

Like many websites, the Shelter website uses “cookie” technology. When you first connect to our site, the cookie identifies your browser with a unique, random number. The cookies we use do not reveal any personal information about you. Cookies help us understand which parts of shelterfurniture.ca are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the site even better.

 

The Shelter Customer Privacy Policy is subject to change at any time. We encourage you to review the privacy policy regularly for any changes.
