For Our Customers Using the Internet
What are “cookies” and how does Eco Thrift use them?
A “cookie” is a small data file stored on your computer. At Eco Thrift, we place a unique identifier in the cookie and use the cookie to connect your computer with the information we store for you in our database. Some examples of the data we store in our database includes your account preferences, user-specific information on pages accessed, and previous visits to our site. Through cookies we may: alert you to new areas that we think might be of interest to you when you return to our site; record past activity at our site; or, customize Web page content.
How can I update my information?
You can update your information, including contact preferences, by:
- Visiting with a Customer Service representative in one of the Eco Thrift retail locations,
- Opening a customer service ticket on our Help Center,
- Sending the keyword HELP in response to a text message from us.
We evaluate each request and will reply in an appropriate manner and in a form of communication that ensures the security of the information you have requested. Any questions, please contact us.
How do I know my information is secure?
We have appropriate security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you so you can feel comfortable and secure when shopping. We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving your personal information. On the Internet, when you see either a solid key icon or a locked padlock icon at the lower portion of your browser window, this indicates that the site is secured through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Pages requesting personal information should always have one of these icons. If you do not see one of these icons, please contact us before attempting to access our web services.
For Our Customers Using Text Messaging
We may send text messages you have consented to receive. You can cancel text messages at any time by texting “STOP”. After you send “STOP”, we may send you an additional text message to confirm that you have been unsubscribed. You will no longer receive text messages from that short code, but you may receive text messages if you are subscribed to other text lists. If at any time you have questions about the text messages, text “HELP”. After you send “HELP” we will respond with instructions on how to use our service as well as how to unsubscribe. Message and data rates may apply. Message frequency varies. You may also visit one of our locations to receive in person help or send us a support email from our online help center at support.ecothrift.com.
How to Report Fraud
You can help us identify attempts at fraud.
Eco Thrift will never ask you for sensitive personal information in an email.
If you receive a suspicious email appearing to come from Eco Thrift, such as one requesting that you confirm personal information like your credit card number, or if you have received an email implying that it has been sent by Eco Thrift after you have Opted Out of receipt of Eco Thrift emails, you may forward the suspicious email to abuse@EcoThrift.com.
You should not respond directly to suspicious email. And do not click on or open any hyperlink embedded in the suspicious email.
There are a few common features of fraudulent emails that can help you identify them as spam. The two most frequent are:
- receiving an email that contains mistakes such as misspelled words or grammatical errors, and
- receiving an email that asks for your confidential information or asks you to take immediate action on your account.
We encourage all our customers to protect themselves and their information:
- do not share your credentials or account information with any third party, and
- make sure that your system is properly patched, running anti-virus and a personal firewall.
If you have already provided information in response to a suspicious email that appeared to have been sent by Eco Thrift, you may report the suspicious email by forwarding it to abuse@EcoThrift.com.
For more information on how to protect yourself and your personal information, you can visit the anti-phishing Working Group’s website at http://www.antiphishing.org/consumer_recs.html.
Thank you for helping us monitor and prevent fraud.

If a Child submits information to us and we know that the person submitting the information is a Child, we will not use it for any purpose. We will delete the information as soon as we discover it and we will not disclose it to third parties.
