Secure Shopping & Privacy Policy

Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. Church Hill Classics' privacy and security statement demonstrates our firm commitment to maintain privacy and security for our customers. This will explain how information is gathered on our website and the steps we have taken to ensure a safe and secure environment for making purchases online.

Information Collection and Use

We value you as our customer and understand the reservations you may have about making purchases online. Church Hill Classics sells frames directly and, in some cases, on behalf of university bookstores or other partnered professional organizations. When we sell you a product directly, your information will remain with us. When we sell you a product affiliated with a particular bookstore at your university or partnered professional organization, your information will remain with us and, in some cases, with that bookstore or partnered professional organization. We do not sell or rent this information to others. This applies to all information collected by or submitted to the Church Hill Classics' website.

During the checkout process, we request contact information, such as your name, phone number, email address, shipping address, and financial information, such as credit card number, expiration date, and billing address (if different from shipping address).

On some pages, you may submit information about other people. For example, if you order a gift online and want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient's address. In this circumstance, such personal information collected on these pages include the recipient's name, address, phone number, and email address for shipping confirmation.

Church Hill Classics records raw request information for legitimate business purposes and security. This information includes which internet protocol (IP) address a request originates from. This information is not used for analytics or marketing or shared with any third party for analytics and marketing purposes.

Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy. We will respond only to your specific requests for information and will provide to you the information you have requested via your stated method of communication. We respect your privacy, and if you have any additional questions about what information you are signed up to receive by email, please don't hesitate to call us at 800-477-9005 or email us at We will gladly make any requested adjustments and do not discriminate against consumers for exercising their rights under the CCPA.

About Log-In Accounts

We offer the option of a log-in account as a means to maintain and update your customer information easily and more conveniently in the future. Establishing a log-in account will quicken future orders by reducing the need to input repetitive information. It also allows you to readily see the status of and obtain tracking information on any open or recent orders you have placed with us. In some cases, the log-in areas of our site allow you to access information about our products and programs that are not available to the general public.

Ordering and Gift-Giving

To help us respond to your needs or place an order, we ask you to provide contact information (i.e. name, shipping address, and email address) and, if appropriate, financial information (i.e. credit card number, expiration date). This information helps us to process your order more efficiently and is used for accounting and billing purposes. In addition, if we experience difficulty processing an order, this information can also be used to help us get in touch with you.

In the event that you make a purchase to ship to another person, we use the information you provide about someone else only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.

We offer eGift Cards by which you can send a personal greeting to another person as an accompaniment to the product you purchase for them. Information you provide to us to create an eGift Card is only used for that purpose, and it is only disclosed to the person receiving the gift.

Payment Methods Accepted and Terms of Payment

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express as payment for orders received online, by mail, by telephone, or fax. We accept personal checks by mail, although merchandise will not be shipped until the check has cleared our bank. Checks returned for insufficient funds or other reasons are subject to an additional $20 fee. Commercial accounts may submit a credit application and obtain an open account, subject to our credit approval and notification of available credit lines. Initial orders for commercial accounts must be prepaid until such time as credit terms have been approved and established.

Order Payment and Credit Card Charges

We do not stock any merchandise; all of our products are handcrafted and made-to-order. Due to the fact that we are custom-building something especially for you, we have to guarantee payment prior to creating your order. Many of our products are personalized and are specially sized to fit your personal documents and would not be usable by any other customers.

Data from Third Parties - Amazon

We use some personal information to fulfill third-party orders with Amazon. We store this personal information up to 30 days after shipping your order.
