Security and Privacy
You can order confidentially - our online shopping is secure. We've taken every precaution to protect sensitive data sent to us over the Internet. All personal and credit card information entered on your order is transmitted in an encrypted form for your safety. All transactions are kept secure when you use Netscape Navigator 6.0+, Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0+ or any compatible Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) browser to order our products. These browsers automatically scramble personal information so it remains safe as it travels the Internet. If you do not use a SSL browser, you may download one of these programs now.
- Information Collection and Use

- Log Files
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We may occasionally partner with another party to provide specific services, such as broadcasting email messages. We will only provide contact information necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of every web site that collects personally identifiable information.

- Surveys and Contests
From time-to-time we may request information from you via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code, age level).
We will use contact information to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will assist us in improving our products and services, and in providing you with an enjoyable shopping experience. None of the information from a survey is used on an individual basis. All information is compiled into statistical groupings only and is not retained for any other use.
bridgebrandschocolate.com takes every precaution to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, we protect your information both online and offline. When we request sensitive information (such as credit card, name, address, etc) on our registration/order form, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL.
When you're on a secure page, such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just "surfing." While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect your information off-line. All of our users' information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is protected.
