Privacy Policy

Introduction 
At Home Bistro, we are keenly aware of the trust you place in us and our responsibility to protect your privacy. 

While you can visit our website without registering or providing any personal information, you will need to register if you want to make a purchase, as we need personal information to be able to process your order. 

How We Gather and Use Non-Personal Information 
We track such non-personal information as to which operating system or web browser you are using, or if you arrived at our site from a link on another website - this data is used for aggregate statistical purposes only, and is therefore not "individual" information in the same way as your personal data, since it is not linked to your identity in any way. We use this information to improve user experience with our site. 

How We Gather and Use Your Personal Information 
It is not our intention to collect personal information of any kind relating to minors. If this occurs, it will have been in err (age misrepresented, for example), and we will immediately purge any such information upon it being made known to us that the information collected pertains to a minor. All personally identifiable information we gather will be as knowingly provided by you. 

We use the information you provide in order to set up your account with our online ordering system. The information you provide will be stored there so you can re-order from us at any time without setting up a new account, so you will want to remember your user name and password. 
We use the information you provide to process your orders — you give us your credit card information and address so we can bill your order and ship it to you. 

We may use the information you provide to contact you for a variety of reasons, chief among them being any special instructions or difficulties with your order or email communication such as newsletters and advertisements. 
We may also use minimal amounts personal data you provide to generate statistics and aggregate reports for internal use and for sharing with appropriate third parties. These statistics and aggregate reports will not contain any personally identifiable information, so your identity is kept private. 

How We Protect Your Personal Information 
When you provide us with personal information or place an order, it's done through a secure server that uses one of today's most advanced security systems — Secure Socket Layers (SSL) — to encrypt all information you provide before sending it to the server, and before sending it back from the server to your browser to display. 

How We Use "Cookies" 
Depending on how you have configured your browser, when you shop on our website, a small file - a "cookie" - is stored on your computer. The cookie contains an identification code, which is used to save your Shopping Cart and retrieve it the next time you visit the site. If you arrive on our website with Cookies turned off in your browser, you won't be identified until you register and sign-in, but you won't be able to retrieve a lost shopping cart. We may also use cookies on our website for a variety of purposes which will not include personal profiling, but relate to non-personal information (see above), such as for aggregate statistical purposes, so cookies used in this fashion will not be identified with any personal information you provide. 

How We Share Your Information with Third Parties 
We contract with certain trusted companies to act on our behalf by performing such functions as fulfilling orders and delivering packages, and those companies are provided with only the information necessary to perform the specific function requested. 

We must reserve the right to co-operate with local or state and national officials in any investigation requiring either personal information — including any personal information provided online through our website — or reports about lawful or unlawful user activities on the website. In this respect, we may at any time to disclose any information in an individual's account in order to satisfy any law, regulation or government request from an authority having jurisdiction over you or us. 

How We Update our Privacy Policy 
We reserve the right to modify or update this Privacy Policy at any time to reflect changes in legislation or business practices.

We reserve the right to correct any printing or image errors. Colors may not be exactly as they appear due to image conversion, monitor settings and image formats. Some photographs may be representations of actual products.
