With the exception of Renfro.com, each of these sites provides you the ability to order products online. However, when you click on the Shop Online link on FruitSocks.com, CopperSole.com, DrSchollsSocks.com, and HotSox.com you are directed to the relevant portion of renfrosocks.com from which your order will be made.

It also does not apply to information we may collect about you from sources other than this Website except to the extent that we may combine information we collect on this Website with our information we have collected about you.

We do not authorize any of these service providers to make any other use or disclosure of your information.
  • From time to time we work with other companies or our affiliates to offer you information about their goods and/or services or opportunities to participate in sweepstakes or other contests.

Security

We do our best to provide you with a safe shopping experience. We have in place certain physical, electronic, contractual, and managerial safeguards to protect the security and privacy of your personal information.

When you enter your personal information on our websites, we use Extended Validation Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to protect your information as it is transmitted to us. To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal financial information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or Location line of your browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from "http" to "https".

If for any reason you cannot access the secure server, or if you're not quite comfortable shopping online at any of our websites, please feel free to place your order with us by calling 1-800-334-9091.

Identity thieves sometimes send fraudulent email messages to trick customers into divulging personal or financial information (a practice known as "phishing"). "Phishing" is a scam designed to steal your personal information. If you receive an email that looks like it is from us asking you for your personal information, do not respond. We will never request your password, user name, credit card information or other personal information through email. If you have received or entered personal information in response to a suspicious email, pop-up or phony website claiming to be affiliated with Renfro, please call us at 1-800-334-9091 immediately.

Customer Ratings and Reviews

Registered users also have the ability to post reviews and ratings of our products. Your comments will be available for all users to see. Additionally, your review and comments may be shared by Renfro or other users on other social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter. If you create a user name, that user name may be used in connection with those postings. We therefore strongly suggest that you not adopt a user name that might be used by third parties to contact you or to learn your true identity. Renfro also may use your reviews and ratings for its own promotional purposes without paying you any additional compensation.
