When We Collect Your Information
You can visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. However, there may be times (such as when you purchase or order a product, subscribe to a service, register to receive catalogs, to participate in contests, sweepstakes or promotions, respond to customer surveys, participate in product panels, or otherwise interact with us) when we ask you to provide certain personal information, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, social media user name, credit card information, birth date, gender, occupation, personal interests, and other information.
Whether you provide such information to us is completely up to you. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may not be able to purchase products, or access certain services, offers and content on our websites. In addition, we may need to contact you via phone, email or mail to address questions or issues specific to your order, entry, etc., even if you have opted to not receive marketing communications from us.
What Kind of Information We Collect
We collect two basic types of information – personal information and anonymous information – and we may use personal and anonymous information to create a third type of information, aggregate information. Personal information is information which you may be personally identified, such as your name, email address, contact phone number, mailing and billing address, and credit card number and expiration date.
Anonymous information is information that does not directly or indirectly identify, and cannot reasonably be used to identify, an individual customer.
Aggregate Information is information about groups or categories of customers, which do not identify and cannot reasonably be used to identify an individual customer.
We collect the following categories of information:
Registration information you provide when you create an account, including your first name and surname, country of residence, gender, email address, username and password. [We may also ask you for your birthday if you would like to receive special offers on your birthday.]

How We Protect Your Personal Information
Maintaining the security, integrity and confidentiality of your personal information is extremely important to us. We have implemented technical, administrative and physical security measures that are designed to protect guest information from unauthorized access, disclosure, use and modification. Some of those safeguards include:
- Shopping Cart Security. Our website takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. Our shopping cart incorporates industry-standard secure server software (Secure Socket Layers) into sensitive sections of our store. All online transactions at The House of Pillows are handled using this encryption technology. When you enter your credit card number into the order form, it is transmitted across the internet in an encrypted (scrambled) form, then decoded when it is removed from our server for processing.
- Credit Card Verification. Authorize.net, a state-of-the-art credit card verification service, keeps The House of Pillows’s transactions secure by encrypting all of your Personally Identifiable Information while validating the transaction. We use RSA encryption technology to scramble your data so that it would be virtually impossible to break into. We are PCI compliant, and thus follow the rules and regulations for security of credit card information specified by Visa & MasterCard.
- Secure Browsing. There are two ways to make sure you are browsing secure web pages. Your browser indicates secure modes with a symbol – the image of a closed padlock. You will know your information is protected if the closed-lock symbol appears in the lower right or left-hand corner of your screen while you are visiting a secure web page. You can also verify secure pages by checking the address, or URL, listed on the scroll bar. If you spot an “s” after the “http” at the beginning of the address (i.e., “https://” rather than “http://”), you know that you are browsing in a secure environment.
We urge you to keep any password that you establish with us in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to log off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place.
How to Access and Correct Your Information
There are several ways to update information you have provided to us. You can review and change your personal information by logging into the Website and visiting your account profile page. You can also Visit Account Services for instructions on accessing and updating your personal account information.
You may also send us an e-mail at email@example.com to request access to, correct or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We may not be able to make a change to your personal information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

We will not share, sell, rent, swap or authorize any company or third-party outside of our brand to use your email address without your permission.

Emails From You.
If you send us emails, you should be aware that information disclosed in emails may not be secure or encrypted and thus may be available to others. We suggest that you exercise caution when deciding to disclose any personal or confidential information in emails. We will use your email address to respond directly to your questions or comments.
The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the result of four years of work by the EU to bring data protection legislation into line with new, previously unforeseen ways that data is now used.
The drivers behind the GDPR are twofold. Firstly, the EU wants to give people more control over how their personal data is used, bearing in mind that many companies like Facebook and Google swap access to people’s data for use of their services. By strengthening data protection legislation and introducing tougher enforcement measures, the EU hopes to improve trust in the emerging digital economy. Secondly, the EU wants to give businesses a simpler, clearer legal environment in which to operate, making data protection law identical throughout the single market.
The GDPR will apply in all EU member states from 25 May 2018.

Products damaged by unproper or unadvised care
If a product is, or appears to have been, washed or cared for by the customer in a way that was not advised, or strongly unadvised, by The House of Pillows, we reserve the right to refuse a refund or returns. For this reason, we advise you to very carefully follow all our care instructions for our products, and if you have any questions, thoughts, or misunderstandings about how to care for your product which you purchased on The House of Pillows website, please contact us at: email@example.com.
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, you have the right to return your product, but all return shipment fees must be taken on by the customer. The House of Pillows will not take responsibility for product return shipping expenses, except in very special circumstances. Unless the product is damaged by our own fault, we will not pay for return shipping.
If, and when you decide to make a return, we must insist that you send us a picture of your product which you’ve decided to return by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a message as to why you wish to return your product, within 24 hours to 8 days of your reception of that product.

The House of Pillows reserves the right to refuse a return or refund, if the product appears to have been stained, torn, used, washed or damaged in any way, by the Customer his or herself. We advise you not to use the product, if you believe you will probably return it.
Orders + Shipping Information
Once an order has been confirmed, the products in that order will be made and dispatched within 1-5 days. The customer will receive a tracking code, once the order is dispatched.
The House of Pillows makes all its products made to order. That means, once you place an order, the product will be put into production. The House of Pillows does not keep stock, as we believe that each product is more special if it is made specially for the person who ordered it, instead of “taken off the shelf”.
The customer can cancel their order, unless it has already been dispatched. If the customer wishes to cancel their order after it has been dispatched, he or she must return the product(s) they ordered at their expense.
Because shipping products back and forth, and take a negative toll on the environment, we urge you to make sure that you are certain of your purchase.
Wholesale orders are required to be done over email as the website accepts only Retail orders. All Wholesale orders need to provide the company information when contacting us over email and provide a valid VAT. For more information contact us over the contact form and we will get back to you.
Depending on the product you have ordered, and the amount of orders our team has to produce and fulfil on that given week or month, there may be slightly higher production/shipping delays.
If these shipping delays go over 5 to 7 days, you will be immediatly be notified by email. If you do not wish to wait for your order, you have the choice to cancel it, at no extra cost.
The House of Pillows is able, and happy to, fulfill custom orders when a customer wishes a custom product.
We ask that you contact us with what custom product you are interested in purchasing, and our team will get back to you with additional information. We will let you know which exact measurements we need, but the customer will need to provide the exact measurements which he or she desires the product to be made.
For example, is the customer wishes for a custom fitted sheet, the customer must take all the exact measurements which The House of Pillows asks for, in order to make a perfect custom made fitted sheet. The House of Pillows will do its best to make clear which measurements it needs, depending on the custom product asked for. The customer must make sure that he or she understands the measurements needed by The House of Pillows, in order to fulfil his or her custom order.
The House of Pillows will send the customer a custom quote for the custom product, and the customer can either accept or decline the payment of his or her custom product. If the customer is satisfied with the quote provided, and wants to go through with purchase the custom made product, at the quote price given by The House of Pillows, then the customer must pay for their custom product, either by direct bank transfer or other ways of payment. The production of the product will begin once the payment has gone through to our account.
If the customer changes his or her mind, and the production of the Custom product has already begun, The House of Pillows will not be able to provide a refund. If the customer receives the product, and is not to his or her liking, The House of Pillows will not be able to provide a refund, unless the mistake was on the part of The House of Pillows, and the measurements are off. If you receive your custom made product, and believe we have made an error, contact us at: email@example.com. We will do our very best to satisfy each and everyone of our customers to the fullest degree possible.
