What information do we collect? How do we use it?
When you order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, delivery address and home address. This allows us to process and fulfill your orders and to notify you of the status of your order. We also ask for your telephone number which enables us to contact you urgently if there is a problem with your order or to discuss a matter that might need some clarification. It is also required by the Courier so that the driver can contact you if necessary.
How does Meridian Meats protect customer information?
When you place orders, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to our credit card authorization centre. Furthermore, as required by the UK Data Protection Acts of 1984 and 1998, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of information which you have given us, to prevent unauthorized access. Our security procedures mean that we may occasionally request proof of identity before we are able to disclose sensitive information to you.
What about "cookies"?

Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information, but they do enable us to store items in your Shopping Basket. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent that.
