Information Collection

Sherwood only collects personally identifiable information (“PII”) (i.e., information that individually identifies You, such as names, mailing addresses, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers, and tax exempt numbers) when You submit it voluntarily. There may also be times when You submit information about someone else, such as when You enter their shipping address or credit card information.

This Site is a general audience website that does not knowingly collect information from children younger than age 13.

At the time You conduct a purchase on this Site, agree to participate in a promotion, or register for an account on the Site (a “Sherwood Account”), we may collect and store Your name, company name, address, credit card numbers, email address, and other personally identifiable information.

Information Use

We use Your PII to provide services that You request and to inform You of additional services about which You may be interested. In addition, we use Your PII to improve our marketing, development and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze site usage, to improve our content offerings and to customize this Site’s content, layout and services. We may also use Your PII and other data to deliver additional information to You that is intended to target Your identified interests; in particular, we may use Your email address or mailing address to contact You regarding administrative notices, offerings and communications relevant to You on this Site.

We may also use or disclose information to resolve disputes, investigate problems, or enforce the Terms of Use for this Site. In addition, we may disclose or access information when we believe in good faith that the law requires us to do so.

To make this Site more useful to You, we may automatically gather general statistical information about this Site and its visitors, such as IP addresses (and information tied to IP addresses, such as screen size, color depth, language, java enabling, flash version, page title, host name, referring source, and page path), browsers, pages viewed, number of visitors, products purchased, etc. In doing so, we do not reference You by name, email, mailing address, or any similar personally identifiable information. We use this data in the aggregate to learn about our Site visitors and to improve our ability to cater to their needs. We may use third party vendors, including BigCommerce, to gather general statistical information about this Site and its visitors as well as to perform certain services on behalf of this Site, such as hosting this Site, designing or operating this Site's features, enabling You to make purchases through the Site, enabling us to send You e-mail alerts, or performing other administrative services. We may provide these companies with access to Your PII to carry out the services they are performing for You or for us.

Cookies and Other Technology

As part of our service, we also use cookies to store and sometimes track information about You. A “cookie” is a small amount of data that is sent to Your browser from a web server and stored on Your computer’s hard drive. Generally, we use cookies to remind us who You are, to give You easier access to repeatedly used account information, to gather statistical information about usage, to research visiting patterns, and to help target advertisements based on user interests. In some instances, our partners and advertisers appearing at this Site may use their own cookies. Your web browser settings, which You may change at any time, determine if and how a cookie will be accepted. By changing those settings, You can accept all cookies, be notified when a cookie is set, or simply reject all cookies. If You decide to reject all cookies, please be aware that You may be required to re-enter Your information more often and certain features of this Site may be unavailable to You.

We may also use "Facebook Pixel" developed by Facebook, Inc. to track Your behavior if you clicked on a Facebook or Instagram advertisement and were directed to our Site. This allows us to assess the effectiveness of Facebook and Instagram advertisements. The data we obtain through this process is anonymous, meaning we have no means of tracing the identity of any Facebook or Instagram user. Facebook may also use the data for its own advertising purposes in line with its data usage guidelines, which are outside the scope of these Terms.

To reiterate – we will not obtain PII about You when You visit our site unless You choose to provide such information to us.

Contests and Promotions

We may offer contests and other promotions (each, a "Promotion") through this Site that may require registration. By participating in a Promotion, You are agreeing to the terms, conditions or official rules that govern that Promotion, which may contain specific requirements of You, including, except where prohibited by law, allowing the sponsor(s) of the Promotion to use Your name, voice or likeness in advertising or marketing associated with the Promotion. If You choose to enter a Promotion, Your PII may be disclosed to third parties or the public in connection with the administration of such Promotion or as required by law, such as in connection with winner selection or prize fulfillment or in accordance with the Promotion's official rules.

Information You Disclose Publicly

This Site may permit You to submit text and images consisting of product questions and reviews, and may provide You with the opportunity to submit, post, display, transmit, publish, distribute or broadcast such content and materials, including Your PII, to Sherwood or this Site (collectively, "Submissions"). Your Submissions may be published online or offline in any media or format (currently existing or later developed). In addition, we may publish Your name, likeness and other PII in connection with publishing Your Submissions or a portion of Your Submissions, and we may use Your Submissions and any excerpt from Your Submissions in connection with our advertising, marketing, publicity and promotional activities. Please also see the Reviews & Comments section of our Terms of Use, which governs any content or materials You submit through this Site.

Please think carefully before deciding what information You share, including PII, in connection with Your Submissions.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information that You disclose publicly, share with others or otherwise upload onto this Site. We are not responsible for the accuracy, use or misuse of any content, materials, or information that You disclose or receive through this Site.


We employ commercially reasonable safeguards to help protect and secure Your PII, such as Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") encryption to protect Your credit card numbers. However, no transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of any information You transmit to us. Please note that You are using this Site and providing us with Your PII at Your own risk.
