Other Information We Collect and Use
Third-Party Website Links
Some of our websites provide links to third-party websites, such as those of our affiliates, business partners and advertisers. We have no access to or control over their practices. Because Texas Restaurant Equipment does not control the information policies or practices of these third-party websites, you should review their privacy policies to learn more about how they collect and use personal information.
Texas Restaurant Equipment stores all data using industry-standard security devices, such as firewalls and encryption protocols, to safeguard against unauthorized access to our data. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures coupled with carefully developed security procedures to protect your information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized alteration. When we ask for sensitive information, such as credit card numbers, we protect it through the use of the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol which provides encryption during transmission. We have put in place policies to restrict access to your information by our employees. Our employees are trained to safeguard your information. Additionally, we use internal and external resources to review the adequacy of our security procedures.
