Privacy

 

Some individuals or organisations talk about privacy as if it is another industry norm they have to address or abide by.

To us it is something quite personal and extremely important.

Just in the last few years we have seen 45 million records stollen from a major high street department store that has a long disclosed policy regarding privacy and their security while they had been saving personal and credit card information about customers without letting them know explicitly. Then there was the major healthcare provider that was hacked by a group in Asia and hence they lost 80 million records of patients and members, including social security cards, data of birth, marital status, and all the detailed information about their children and dependents.

Unfortunatley this is becoming too common place, almost a norm and a standard rather than an incredible exception. Yes, we at SeattleOrganicRestaurants.com are very keen to protect your rights and your privacy as we wish our own rights to be protected too.

If you require any more information than what we have provided below, or have any questions about our privacy policy, please feel free to contact us via our Contact Page on our website.
