The Holly Yashi Privacy Policy

At Holly Yashi, we respect our customers and understand that you are concerned about privacy, so we've instituted policies intended to ensure that your personal information is handled safely and responsibly. We also have posted this privacy policy to let you know what kind of information we collect, how it is handled, with whom it may be shared, what choices you have regarding our use of your information and how you may access some of the data you provide to us. If you do not want your information shared please scroll down to our “Opt-Out” information at the bottom of this page.

How Your Information is Used
We may use your information in a number of ways, including the following:

To improve the content on our website. For example, we may use cookies to find out which parts of our site or our products are visited most often.

For marketing and promotional purposes. We send out emails to our customers about products or events that we think may be of interest to them. We also may send you special promotions, new arrivals or new site features.

How Your Information is Shared
Any personal information you provide to us on our website when you register, enter a contest or promotion, shop on-line or request information (i.e. name, address, email address, telephone number and the last four digits of your credit card information) is maintained in private files in our internal systems. Holly Yashi does not keep records of complete credit card numbers (only the last four digits) and does not share any credit card information with third parties. Holly Yashi does share information about our customers with some of our affiliated companies and reputable third parties in order to help us provide better service to you. These third parties may be given access to some of the information you provide to us and may use cookies on our behalf. We may also share statistical, demographic and other non-personally identifiable information with third party companies and these companies may also use cookies.

All hollyyashi.com orders are fully processed in and shipped from the United States. All information you provide, including only the last four digits of your credit card number, will be securely maintained in our internal systems located within the United States.

We may disclose specific information about you if required to do so by law, governmental request or court order or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with such law, request or court order or to protect the users of our website or the public.

Information Security
At Holly Yashi, we are committed to providing our customers with a secure shopping environment. We maintain practices and procedures designed to ensure the security, integrity and confidentiality of customer information, and use various security measures to ensure that your credit card information is protected, including the latest in security technology. In fact, we exceed required credit card security standards. When you place an order through our shopping basket, your personal information is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology, the industry standard security protocol for encoding sensitive information. SSL creates a shared digital key, which only lets the sender and the receiver of the transmission scramble or unscramble information. To everyone else, the SSL transmission is indecipherable.

Encryption is based on the mathematical scrambling and unscrambling of messages. The type of encryption we use assigns two keys - one is a public key and one is a private key. When you send us a message, you use our public key to encrypt your message. Once we receive your encrypted message, we use the private key to decode it. The same key cannot both encrypt and decrypt information. So, information encrypted using the private key can only be decrypted using the public key, and vice versa- ensuring the security of your information.

This technology, together with our other security measures, protects your personal information as it moves from your computer to our server. We also restrict and limit access to customer information only to those employees who require it to carry out their business functions, and educate our employees about safeguarding customer information and preventing its unauthorized access, disclosure, or use. We constantly monitor and adopt, as appropriate, new technological improvements designed to protect and ensure the accuracy and security of customer information.

Opt-Out Information
You have the opportunity to “opt-out” of having your information used for purposes not directly related to your transaction at the point where we ask for the information. Customers who no longer wish to receive communications may opt-out. If you would prefer not to have your information used for purposes not directly related to the point of purchase please email us at: customerservice@hollyyashi.com.

Your confidence in the Holly Yashi shopping experience is our highest priority. If you have any concerns about privacy and security that have not been answered in the above policy, please contact us and we'll do our best to answer your questions and put your mind at ease.

As we continue to grow and take advantage of technologies to improve the services we provide, this policy will change. We encourage you to refer to this policy on an ongoing basis so that you understand our current privacy policy.
