Our Commitment To Privacy

At Frick’s Quality Meats (“we” or “us” or “our”) we respect our customers and understand that you (“user”) are concerned about privacy and the use of your personal information. We consider the information you choose to share with us personal and confidential.

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and safeguard your information when you visit our website, fricksqualitymeats.com, including any other media form, media channel, mobile website, or mobile application related or connected thereto (collectively, the “Site” or “Website”). Please read this privacy policy carefully. If you do not agree with the terms of this privacy policy, please do not access the site.

Safe Online Shopping

We want you to feel completely secure when ordering from our Site. We use a technology called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), and digital certificate technology, which encrypts (or encodes) sensitive information, protects its integrity, and allows it to be properly identified in Internet based transactions. Your information is protected by the password assigned to you. Protect the confidentiality of that password and do not disclose it to third parties. Contact our Customer Service by email if you would like further information on Site security.

While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the personal information you provide to us, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties. Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete security if you provide personal information.

You are under no obligation to provide us with personal information of any kind, however your refusal to do so may prevent you from using certain features of the Site.

The cookie identifies you when you visit so we can optimize and customize your online shopping experience.
