Our Commitment to Privacy:
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used.

Important note: We never store credit card information. This information, once submitted to us is used to place a single order. The credit card information is then discarded. Any subsequent purchase will require that the credit card information be entered again.
The Way We Use Information:
We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order to complete that order. We also use Name and Email address to send periodic newsletters, cooking tips and specials. When you receive such an Email, there is an “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the page allowing you to “opt out” of future mailings.
We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete your order. We offer gift cards, by which you can personalize a product you order for another person. Information you provide to us to create a gift-card is only used for that purpose, and it is only disclosed to the person receiving the gift.
We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive.
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals. Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above.
Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
How You Can Access or Correct Your Information
You can access all your personally identifiable information that we collect and maintain by logging in and going to the My Account link located at the top of the page. We use this procedure to better safeguard your information.
You can correct factual errors in your personally identifiable information by sending us a request that credibly shows error. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
