Privacy Statement for
Fante's Kitchen Shop

HTTPS is most important when sending personal information. The link to our Returns form, for example, is HTTPS, because we ask for your name, address, phone, etc. on that page. (We do show a Security Certificate on that page.) And when you click on an Order button on our website, it takes you to a secure HTTPS address on Yahoo, where our secure Shopping Cart resides.
Besides our History page, reviews such as on Yelp and Google Places might provide you with helpful helpful in your determination of our level of sincerity and integrity.
