Additional Security Info You Should Know

Our stores, call centers or sites may contact you regarding your order.

Call Centers

When you contact our Call Center with a question about a product, order status or billing issue you may be asked for information that identifies you -- along with additional information we need to help us promptly answer your question. This includes your name, address and a phone number where we can reach you. We may keep this information to assist you in the future.

Online Registration

Registration is an optional service. You do not have to register to browse online. When you register, you are asked for personal information such as your name, address, phone number, email address, a password that you select, and optionally, your interests. Your registration information may be used to help make your online shopping quicker and easier, by pre-filling certain parts of your shopping information. When you register you will also have the opportunity to sign up for future marketing information from True Value MRO Online.


If you choose to register on this site you will be asked to create a username and password. In order to further protect your personal information, please do not share your password with anyone else. If you wish to cancel a password, or if you become aware of any loss, theft or unauthorized use of your password, please Contact Us.

No "phishing" allowed. We will never request your password, user name, credit card information or other personal data through email. This practice, called "phishing", is a scam designed to steal your personal information. If you receive an email that looks like it is from True Value requesting this type of personal information, please delete it.

Privacy Preferences / Opt-Out

As a registered user, you may request to see the personal information that we have about you. To access your profile information at any time, go to My Account.

Although you may have opted not to receive marketing communications, you may still get order confirmations, product recall notices or other order-related communications. Since True Value stores are individually owned and operated, you may have to unsubscribe from each store that you receive mail from.

Contests, Questions or Surveys

When you ask a question, participate in a survey or enter a contest or sweepstakes we may collect your name, address, phone number and email address. We use this information to facilitate your participation in a contest or sweepstakes. At that time we may ask your permission to send you future marketing information from True Value MRO Online.

Here's an Overview of the Security Measures on Our Site


Security systems aren't just for protecting your home. Our website uses Secure Sockets Layering (SSL) to encrypt your personal credit information, including your credit card number, before it travels over the Internet. SSL technology is the industry standard for secure online transactions. Because we use SSL, placing an order online at our website is just as safe as giving your credit card number over the phone. Want to know how to identify a secure website? Look at the address of the page. Secure pages will usually appear with an address that starts with "https://" rather than the standard "http://".
