We collect two types of information on our site:
- Order Information: name, address, phone number, e-mail addresses, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process your order and to notify you of your order status. All online orders are handled with industry-standard SSL encryption. When you enter your credit card number into the shopping cart order form, it is transmitted across the Internet in an encrypted form, then decoded when it gets to us. We need your address and phone number to process your credit card, but your information is never used again after your order has been shipped.
- Statistical Information: information on what pages consumers visit and search engine referrals. This information allows us to improve the structure and content of our website.
If you have placed an order with Drost's Chocolates, you may receive an automated shipping notification from the United States Postal Service, UPS, or other carrier. This email may contain a tracking number for your package, shipping date, and/or estimated arrival date. UPS may also use your phone number to call you in the event that your package cannot be delivered to your address. We do not give your email address out to any other party, and the shipping companies state that they will use your email address or phone number only to notify you about your package status. Your credit card information is NOT given to the shipping company or any other party.
After you place an order from us we may place you on a mailing list for sales, holiday reminders, company news, and specials. If you wish to opt out of this mailing list, please call us at 231-238-6911.
All information provided to Drost's Chocolates will remain strictly confidential. You can be assured that we respect your privacy, and appreciate your business.
