Collection and Use of Information
HIDES in SHAPE collects information about its customers in order to facilitate sales, repairs, shipping and delivery services. We also collect a limited amount of data that help us monitor the performance of our website and online store. Some of that is necessary in order to facilitate the online purchases process.
Sales, repairs, shipping and delivery services
Hides in Shape provides luggage sales and repair services. In both cases we also offer local delivery services (Manhattan) as well shipping to both within United States and internationally.
In order for us to process sales transactions and repair services for you we need your name, address, phone number, credit card information (when your luggage is out-of-warranty) and an email address. Home and business addresses are used for shipping purposes which are facilitated by UPS, FedEx and USPS.
Emails are mainly necessary for repair and shipping notifications and/or international communications with the customers. While we do compile email addresses, these lists are solely used for internal record keeping with regards to completed sales and repairs. We do not disclose, sell or share your email address with anyone.
Many international customers call or email us with product inquiries before making a purchase. Should that be your case, when you are ready to make the purchase, please call us. When purchases are paid for by credit card over the phone, as soon as the transaction has been completed, the card information you provided us with is destroyed. Please do not send credit card information via email.
HIDESinSHAPE.com is not only our company website, but also the online store of our flagship location where you can find almost everything we carry on our three physical display floors at 555 Madison Avenue. In order to improve our online sales and our customer service, as well as providing all web visitors with a safe and pleasant online experience, we monitor our website’s performance via web analytics. While these e-commerce and e-marketing mechanisms do collect data such as number of visitors to the website, their geographical location and time of visit, the type of browsers they use and which URL they came from, no one is personally identified when visiting our online store.
When you purchase products from our store, we may collect your name, address, email address, telephone number(s), credit card and verification information etc. In addition, we collect transaction information related to your purchase such as what you bought, the price you paid, the payment method you used and if the product was on sale.
