Online and Offline Security
You can order confidentially – our online shopping is secure.
Pappardellesonline.com takes every precaution to protect information you send to us over the Internet. When you submit sensitive information via the website, we protect your information both online and offline. All personal information (such as name, address, credit card number, etc.) entered on our registration and order forms is transmitted in an encrypted form for your safety. All transactions are kept secure when you use an SSL-enabled browser such as Safari, Firefox, or Internet Explorer. These browsers automatically scramble personal information so it remains safe as it travels the Internet. If you do not use an SSL browser, you may download one of these programs now.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything within our power to protect your information offline. All of our users’ information -- not just the sensitive information mentioned above -- is protected by physical security measures and managerial controls to safeguard and secure the information we collect.
In general, you can view our web pages without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself. We may track IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track online usage, and gather broad information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
