Privacy and Security

At A Taste of Africa the privacy and security of our customers is a high priority and we are committed to taking the utmost care with your information. We do not sell, loan or rent any personal information such as name, phone number, e-mail address or address to any third party. As a valued customer of ours, you will find that we are secure, reliable, and discreet.

The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this web site:

Like most websites, certain information is automatically logged each time this website is visited. The date and time of visit, the pages viewed and the IP address of the computer visiting the site are recorded. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. Your IP address is used to gather broad demographic information. No personally identifiable information is collected.

If you complete an online order or request form, the information that you enter into the form will be stored in a database. Credit card information is transferred using SSL, which encrypts the data before it is sent. The Credit Card information is encrypted before being stored in the database. The Credit Card number is removed from the database once the order is processed. Credit card information transferred to a financial institution for processing is also sent securely.

We may occasionally send information regarding promotions or events which we think may be of interest to you. You have the option at any time to discontinue this service if you desire. We will never distribute your email address to any third party. We may preserve the content of any email that you send us, if we choose to do so.

Our site uses cookies—small text files automatically created by your browser in the system folder of your hard drive—to keep track of your shopping cart and to recognize returning customers, so that they do not have to re-enter their billing address.

Our site uses a Secure (SSL Encrypted) shopping cart and order form for customers to purchase products. We collect purchaser’s contact information (like their email address) and financial information (like their account or credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders and information about our company to our customers. The customer’s contact information is also used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Financial information that is collected is used to bill the user for products.
