Personal Information Collected By SherrillTree:
SherrillTree  uses information that we collect from our visitors to personalize and improve your visit at SherrillTree.com. We gather the following types of information:

Information you give us: SherrillTree collects any information which you enter on our Web site. This information is normally provided when you search, buy, participate in a contest, sweepstakes or on-line survey, or when you communicate with any of our departments such as customer service, sales or technical services through our Web site, telephone, mail or fax. You also provide information when you establish an account with us. Examples of the type of information you may supply us with include your name, address, telephone number, credit card information, e-mail addresses, financial information, and other personal information such as your Social Security number.

Automatic Information collected by us: Whenever you visit our Web site, we collect and store informational "cookies" which remember information about a visitor from one page to the next and from one visit to the next. We collect and analyze the IP address used to connect your computer to the Internet; login; password; computer and connection information such as your browser type and version; operating system and platform; purchase history; confirmation when you open e-mail that we send you; the URLs which lead you to and around our Web site including the date and time; the pages and or products you viewed or searched for and the phone number used to call our voice telephone numbers. Your browser allows you to reject cookies and software is available from third parties which will allow you to visit our Web site without providing this information. You are welcomed at our Web site if you use this software, but we will not be able to offer you our personalized services.

Orders: If you place an order, we use a secure order form which requires you to provide contact, billing, and financial information. This information is transmitted to your credit card company to authorize your purchase. At certain times, we may offer financing options with or without third party participation. If you use one of our financing options, information provided by you (such as your address, birth date, social security number, and credit card number) may be used to request a credit report from third parties or may be sent to the third party providing the financing option for processing.

Action Tags: SherrillTree's web pages may contain “action tags” set by third party firms for the purpose of collecting anonymous information about the usage of our site by customers. Action tags are also known as web beacons or 1 pixel gifs. Action tags are a technique used to compile aggregated statistics about the effectiveness of our web site. They do not use personally identifiable information, such as names or addresses, and do not link online actions to an identifiable person.

Sharing of Information with third-parties:
Affiliated Businesses and Sherrill Corporation: We may share any information that you supply to us with any affiliated business that is substantially controlled by SherrillTree (Sherrill Inc.). Any information that is shared this way will be subject to this Privacy Notice.
Independent Contractors: We may employ other companies or individuals to provide certain services to us such as sending e-mail, providing click to call telephone calling services, analyzing customer lists and data, providing marketing assistance, or consulting services. These third parties will have access to the information needed to perform their functions but are prevented through their agreements with us to use that information for any other purpose.

Orders and Catalog Requests: When you place your order and/or when you request that we send you a catalog from time to time, we may share your name, mailing address and purchase category information with a few carefully selected marketing partners who may bring you offers of interest. If you wish to opt out of sharing this information with these companies, please call 1-800-319-8264 or e-mail info@sherrilltree.com. We will never share any telephone number(s), or financial information which you have given us with any marketing partner(s).

Aggregate information: We provide aggregate information to some of our business partners. This information does not allow them to identify you individually.

Vendors: We provide some of our vendors with your contact information so that they may contact you directly with product support information.

Credit card companies and shippers: When you buy something from us, we send your credit card information, name, billing address and the amount of your purchase to your credit card company to verify and authorize the purchase. Your name, telephone number and shipping information must be provided to third party shippers such as UPS, Federal Express and the United States Postal Service to deliver your purchase.

Third Party Transaction-Level Data: If you visit our site from a third-party site, the third-party site may be able to access your individual transaction information. In order to track and credit your transaction, the third-party site may give you a unique code, cookie or graphic which will uniquely identify you. This will only happen if you link directly from a third party site to our Web site. Any transactions made at our Web site while such a code is active will be reported back to the third party site. We will only report non-personal information to these sites, such as the date of the transaction, the product(s) purchased and the amount spent. We will not report any information to these third party sites that will allow them to personally identify you; however, based on information which may have previously been collected from you by the third party site, they may be able to personally identify you by combining the information they have gathered with the information sent by us. You should read the privacy policy posted by the third party site to see how they may use this information. The presence of a third party navbar atop our site is an indication that the third party site may be able to see your activity on our site.

Third Party Ads, Surveys and Promotions: We may use third parties to display ads, surveys and various promotions on our site. These will always be labeled with the third party name. These third party applications may contain cookies or other code which are outside of our control. Although we will attempt only to work with third parties who respect your privacy, we are not responsible or liable for any information collected by these third parties nor for how that information is used. You should contact the third party directly or check the third party's Privacy Notice to see how any information that they may gather will be used.

Link to Third Party Site: Our Web site contains links to third party sites, such as those of our vendors. SherrillTree is not responsible or liable for the privacy practices or content found on these sites. We suggest that you check the Privacy Notice of each site you visit.

Third Party Checkout Links: If you use a third party checkout link on our site (such as the AOL Quick Checkout Program or Microsoft Passport wallet service), your name, billing and shipping addresses and credit card information will be transferred to us from your account with the third party to enable you to check out of our site without having to re-enter certain information.

Law Enforcement and Protection of Users:
We will release personally identifiable information to third parties and organizations when we believe it is appropriate for us to do so to comply with the law. We will also do so to cooperate with law enforcement investigations, comply with court orders or subpoenas, protect our legal rights and those of our users, or when we believe the release of information is needed for fraud protection and/ or credit risk reduction.

Business Transfer:
SherrillTree has been in business independently for 34 years, and our intent is to continue on in this fashion for at least another 34 years. However, in the unlikely event that SherrillTree is sold, has substantially all of its assets acquired, or merges or becomes affiliated with any other individual or entity, any customer information owned or under the control of SherrillTree may be one of the transferred assets.

Security:
Our Web site protects the security of personal information you transmit to us by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts the information you input during the transmission to us. We do not reveal your credit card number when we confirm your order. In order to protect against unauthorized access to your account, you should sign off when you finish visiting our site.

Choice/Opt-Out:
Our Web site gives you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us. If you no longer wish to receive communications from us, you may opt-out by calling 1-800-525-8873 or e-mail info@SherrillTree.com.
