Privacy and Cookies
We at Chocolate Barqoue understand the importance of keeping your personal information private and secure. When you make a purchase from our site, you provide us with your name, email address, credit card information, address, phone number, and a password. We want you to know that Chocolate Baroque does not sell, rent or trade email lists with any other company, in other words we do not share our customer information with any other party. The information we receive from you is used to process your orders, to keep you updated on the progress of your orders and to offer you the best service we can. Part of that service is ensuring that we use and store your information as safely and securely as possible.
When you log into your account on our web site or proceed to the checkout when placing an order (whether logged in or not), the information passing between your computer and our web server is fully encrypted to meet the standards set by the major banking, finance and payment processing organisations e.g Paypal and Sagepay. Our web server is itself secure, being located in a commercial data centre and protected by industry standard firewall and intrusion detection technologies.
When you pay by credit card, your card details are passed directly to one of the leading payment processing systems that then handles the transaction with your bank or card provider. We do not store or process any credit card details on our own system.
If you wish to be kept informed about our latest offers, promotions and new additions to the Chocolate Baroque web site, you can subscribe to our email newsletters.

You may unsubscribe from our newsletters at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions in any email you receive from us.
Please be assured we do not release, share or sell this information to any other company or business.
