Melitta is firmly committed to protecting our customers' privacy.
This is our pledge to you:
We collect only the information needed to process your orders and provide a personalized shopping experience. This includes your name, billing and shipping addresses and credit card number. All information you provide is protected by industry-standard SSL technology and stored on secure servers. (See our Security section below for detailed information on how this works.)
We do not track individuals' use of the Melitta.com site. We may monitor visitor traffic patterns and site usage to help us improve our site, but we never attempt to connect this information to individual visitors.
We may occasionally use the data you provide to inform you of special offers and announcements. You may opt out of receiving such announcements at any time by e-mailing email@example.com.
Much has been made about the security of Internet commerce, for little reason. In fact, online shopping with Melitta is safer than the way we all have done business for years. Here's why:
When you shop with us, the information you provide is protected within a secure, encrypted environment, a standard known as Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. (Unless you have turned the feature off, your browser will display a notice saying that you are about to enter a secure web site; this is your assurance that the information you provide is sent only to Melitta and that our e-commerce server is certified secure.)
We have taken every measure to protect our servers and networks with state-of-the-art solutions. Your information is stored on a secure server in an encrypted form in a highly protected environment.
Your payment information is referenced to your account and kept in our e-commerce system; it is never exposed in transit to another location or part.
