    How We Use Email

    When you provide us with your email address, we may send you emails necessary to process your order or respond to a request.

    Updating or Reviewing your Information

    To update your customer information (name, address, telephone number, or email address), please contact us at info@hertzfurniture.com. To protect your privacy, we will need to validate your identity before you update or review your information.

    Security

    It is our intent to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of information that we have collected from you. We use a variety of current technologies and processes for protection of our customer data. We limit the information we provide to outside companies with whom we contract to only what they need to carry out their responsibilities.

    When you make a purchase, request a catalog, or create an account on our website, your transactional information is transmitted in a safe, encrypted format using VeriSign SSL technology.

    Privacy of Children on our website

    Our website is not intended for use by children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.

    Policy Changes

    From time to time, we may use customer information for unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change, we will post these changes on our website. We encourage you to review our privacy policy periodically.

    What is the Verification Code?

    Alternatively called CVV2 (Visa), CVC2 (MasterCard), or CID (American Express), the verification code is a three- or four-digit number that appears on your card after the account number.

    For Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards, the number is located on the back of your card near your signature. The number on these cards is three digits long.

    For American Express cards, the number is located on the front of your card, on the right hand side above your card number. The number on American Express cards is four digits long.

    This number serves as an added layer of security, because it ensures that the card is physically in possession of the user at the time of purchase. Merchants such as Hertz Furniture will request the code at checkout from the cardholder, and the information is sent electronically to the card-issuing bank to verify its validity. For added protection, merchants are prohibited from keeping or storing these numbers after the transaction has been completed.

    Questions or Comments?

    For questions, comments, or assistance, we invite you to contact us by phone at or by email at info@hertzfurniture.com. We hope to answer any questions to your satisfaction, but should you ever want to contact a third party regarding our privacy practices, you can email the Direct Marketing Association’s Committee on Ethical Business Practices at privacypromise@the-dma.org. The DMA is the oldest and largest association for consumers and companies with interest in direct marketing.
