PRIVACY POLICY


Introduction – SHOLDIT.com knows the importance of safe-guarding the personal privacy of its clients, customers and visitors to its websites.  This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) details the information that may be collected, how we use your personally identifiable information and how we protect it from inadvertent disclosure.


Terms - This Privacy Policy applies only to websites operated by or on behalf of SHOLDIT.com and specifically to those websites hyperlinked to this Privacy Policy (the “Sites”).  The references to “we,” “our,” “SHOLDIT” or “SHOLDIT.com” in this Privacy Policy mean Olive Empire, LLC, a Nebraska limited liability company, the operator of the sites.  This Privacy Policy does not apply to any non-electronic data collection.


The Sites contain links to the websites of other companies and third parties, including but not limited to Google+, Twitter and Facebook.  SHOLDIT is not responsible for the content, practices, privacy policies or terms of usage of third party websites. 


As used in this Privacy Policy, “personally identifiable information” means information that can be used to identify an individual, or that contains individually identifying characteristics, such as full name, e-mail address, phone number or credit card information.  “Aggregate information” refers to group information which has been initially provided as personally identifiable information, but can no longer be used to identify an individual due to the removal of all personally identifiable information.


Collection and Use - You can utilize certain functionality of the Sites without providing personally identifiable information.  However, the following require that you provide personally identifiable information:


  • Delivery of merchandise that you purchase online
  • Billing your credit card for purchases
  • Order confirmation
  • Response to customer-service inquiries or requests
  • Communication of special offers and featured items, but only if you choose to receive such notices
  • Product request fulfillment


SHOLDIT does not collect any personally identifiable information from the Sites unless it is provided voluntarily.  We use personally identifiable information only for purposes consistent with the reasons for its provision, such as:


Purchases of Products and Services:  In order to allow you to purchase products or services through the Sites, we collect information associated with your credit card to bill for payment, confirm orders and ship products, including your name, address, phone number and other identifying information reasonably necessary to complete the transaction. 


Information Requests:  You may be asked to provide personally identifiable information so that we may respond to your requests for information made through the Sites or its Contact Us link.


General Uses:  Your personally identifiable information will be used as described in the Site where submitted, in accordance with the published legal terms contained in the footer of such Site.  We may also use your personally identifiable information to customize communications with you about products or services, for identity verification, to collect any debts owed, to investigate disputes and for other purposes that may be legally required.


Non-Identifying Information:  Non-identifying information related to operating systems, browsers and linking IP addresses are collected to optimize your interests, preferences and experience on the Sites.  SHOLDIT may collect and share aggregate website statistical information with third parties.  No such shared statistical information will contain any personally identifiable information.


Database Usage:  We may supplement the personally identifiable information collected from you on the Sites with data collected from other sources, including but limited to information provided in person, by phone or by mail. We reserve the right to use third-parties to supplement your personally identifiable information, including change of address, contact and financial information.

Control of Information - SHOLDIT may contact you with information concerning products, services or promotions; however, you always have the choice to unsubscribe from such communications.  You may contact us to manage your marketing preferences and to request removal from marketing lists at the address provided below or through “Contact Us” within the Sites.

Sharing of Information - SHOLDIT will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to non-affiliated third parties for marketing purposes.  SHOLDIT may share your personally identifiable information with affiliates or representatives with whom SHOLDIT maintains a business relationship.  


SHOLDIT may hire third parties to provide services on its behalf, which may entail the use of personally identifiable information.  Such third parties are required to maintain the confidentiality and security of personally identifiable information they receive from SHOLDIT.  They are restricted from using personally identifiable information for any purposes other than those authorized by SHOLDIT.
