Customer Accounts and Shopping Bucket
You are not required to create an account to shop our website. However, by creating an account, you do not have to re-enter your contact information every time you shop with us. To set up an account, click the Sign In button located at the top of the page. We request your name, billing address, phone number, and email address and we ask you to create a login and password. We gather your contact information using secure pages. For your protection, we do not store your credit card information. You may delete your account at any time by contacting us.
When you place an order through our Shopping Bucket system, Hardwick’s collects your billing address, shipping address, email, phone number, and credit card number through secure pages that implement encryption technology. We use your contact and payment information to process your order. We send order and shipping confirmations via e-mail and occasionally, we may need to contact you by phone or postal mail regarding your order. For your protection, your payment information is never included in these emails. We do retain your order information for administrative purposes. Again, we do not store your credit card information.
If you are ordering outside of the U.S., please be aware that your order may be subject to opening and inspection by customs officials, as required by law.
As stated previously, Hardwick’s will never sell your personal information to a third party. Under certain circumstances, we may need to share your information with third parties who assist us in completing your order, such as UPS. We do not authorize third parties to use your information in any way other than to complete your order.
You may elect to join the Hardwick’s Mailing List, which features new products and promotions. This is a separate service from your Customer Account. The Mailing List is voluntary. If you sign-up, we request your name and e-mail address. Again, this information is stored for our purposes only and it will not be sold to third parties. You can opt-out of this service at any time.
