SPREAD THE WORD
If you would like to make use of our email tool to “spread the word” and tell your friend about our site, we will ask you for your friend’s email address. Our system will automatically send your friend a one-time email to invite them to visit ShirtelEphant. We do not store this information, and only use it for the sole purpose of sending the said one-time email invite. Your friend may contact us to request that we remove this information from our database.
FACEBOOK CONNECT OR OPEN ID
You can also log in to our website using sign-in services such as Facebook Connect or an Open ID provider. These services will verify and authenticate your identity, which then will give you the choice to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form for faster signups. These services – like Facebook Connect – will give you the option to post information about your activities on this website to your profile page, to share with others within your network.
We care about your personal information. We will only share your personal information with third parties in ways that are described in this privacy statement. We also do not, and will not sell your personal information to third parties.
If you choose to participate in a white-labeled enterprise campaign (identified by the enterprise having their logo in the top left of the campaign, as opposed to having the ShirtelEphant logo) we may share your name, email address and order breakdown (size and quantity) with the enterprise customers for continued contact. This information is protected by data encryption on our database and will only be decrypted to send to the enterprise client exclusively and securely. After this has been complete, the plain-text data is purged from our server. You can opt out of this marketing by contacting the white-labeled enterprise customer.
We may also opt to provide your personal information to companies that will provide services to help us with our business activities, such as shipping your order or offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use your personal information, but only as in its necessary use to provide these services to us.
We may also disclose your personal information:
- When required by law, to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process.
- When we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, your safety, of others; investigate reported fraud, or respond to a request from the government.
- If ShirtelEphant is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of the entirety, or a portion of its assets, you will be notified through email and/or a prominent notice on our website of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as your possible choices regarding your personal information.
- To any other third party, with your consent prior to us providing such.

Securing your personal information is important to us. We abide and follow generally-accepted industry standards to protect our users personal information that was submitted and entrusted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we automatically encrypt the transmission of the said information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We also encrypt your information (customer information) in our database so that customers name and address is never stored in plain text. That said, do note that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, as much as we want to, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Please feel free to contact us if you have any concerns or other questions about security on our website.
We provide two ways for you to make purchase on our site: You may opt to use our order form, or make use of a third-party payment option. If you choose to use our shopping cart, the transmission of sensitive information collected on our order form is automatically encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and is processed by Authorize.net. If you choose to use a third party payment option, such as PayPal, to pay, their privacy policies and security practices will apply to your information. To make sure your information is secure, we encourage you to read their respective privacy policies before providing your information.
