Secure online shopping
By using the Internet you acknowledge that it is not a 100% secure medium for communication and, accordingly, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you send to us (or we send to you) through the Internet. When you place an order with us or access your account infomration, your details are encrypted before the information passes from your computer to our computer using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption method. As your information is encrypted, your details are completely safe from other sources and that they are only visible to you and Kitchen Cookware. You will know when information you enter and submit on a page is encrypted as you'll see a little padlock symbol at the bottom of the browser (as some browsers don't show this symbol; if the address begins with https, this also confirms that the connection in encrypted). We only use industry standard or higher grade of encryption to ensure your details are securely transmitted.
We've been using the SSL encryption method since our website went live in 2010 and we've never had any issues or problems with our website's security or our users information - we are working hard to ensure this standard is maintained and to continuously review the security of our Site.
