Privacy and Security at Shop-NC


Customer Privacy and Security
Shop-NC.com is a website of Shop Carolina, Inc, the sole owner of the information collected on this website.  We only have access to information provided voluntarily to us and we will not sell or rent this information to anyone.  We won't send you email spam and we won't provide your email address to anyone - let alone anyone who might ever send you spam. Period. We hate spam as much as you do!  If you have any reservations about placing an online from your computer, we will be glad to take your order over the telephone - just call us at (800) 881-3727. 

Shop Carolina uses the secure shopping cart services of Americart, one of the premier third-party shopping cart service providers on the Internet. When you place an order from our websites, the secure servers at Americart encrypt and transmit this information using the state-of-the-art Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology of VeriSign®.  The secure servers at Americart are tested and certified daily to pass McAfeeSECURE® security scan and the shopping cart displays a "live" McAfeeSECURE® mark at checkout.

When you are on an SSL-protected page, a picture of a "closed lock" appears at the bottom or top of some Web browsers. Another way to know if you are on a secure page is to look at the web address (URL) of the page. The address box of secure SSL-encrypted pages have URLs starting with https rather than of http. 

For added security, we use technology to compare the billing address you provide Shop Carolina with the billing address on file with the issuer of your credit card. If they do not match, we may contact you for clarification.

Shop Carolina does not store your credit card number on it's computers and the secure servers at Americart do not reuse any of the information you enter. That means each time you place an order, you must re-enter your credit card, billing and shipping information. 

As you browse our websites, we use cookies to log passive information about pages and products viewed to help us process the items in your shopping cart, compile aggregate data about site traffic and ensure that our websites are efficiently organized. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.  We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

If you prefer, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies via your browser settings. Like most websites, if you turn your cookies off, some of our services may not function properly. However, you can still place orders over the telephone.

When you place an order, we collect basic information including your name, address, telephone number, email address and credit card information. We use this collected information solely to respond to your questions, contact you about your order, process your order, arrange delivery of your order and to help you with any issues that arise.  Our website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years or older and we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. 

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others rights, property, or safety. 

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party products or services on our website. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

By using our site, you consent to our privacy policies.  If we decide to change our privacy policies, we will post those changes on this page.  If you have any questions or feel we are not abiding by this policy, please contact us via telephone (800) 881-3727, email: Service@Shop-Carolina.com or by mail:
