We encourage you to carefully review the privacy policies of any Third Party Services you access so that you know how they will collect, use, and share your information.
In summary : The Website and/or Applications may from time to time contain links to other websites not controlled by us. We do not accept responsibility or liability for the privacy practices, data collected or the content of such other websites. The operators of these linked websites are not under a duty to abide by this Privacy Statement.

Unfortunately transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your personal data using an encrypted service we cannot guarantee 100% the security of your data submitted to us and any information that you provide to us is done so entirely at your own risk.
HTTPS : We do however use strict procedures and up-to-date security features to try to prevent unauthorised access wherever possible. Personal information provided to Mayhawk Chocolate via the Website or via any Applications and online credit card transactions are transmitted through a secure server using Secure Socket Layering (SSL), encryption technology. When the letters “http” in the URL change to “https,” the “s” indicates you are in a secure area employing SSL; also, your browser may give you a pop-up message that you are about to enter a secure area or display a padlock image. All of our site is transmitted through an encrypted service, and the padlock in your browser url indicates this.
The Website and the Applications use this encryption technology to protect your information during data transport. SSL encrypts ordering information such as your name, address and credit card number. Our customer service centre and stores also operate over a private, secure network. However, please note that e-mail is not encrypted and it is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting credit card information.
