At GrillandPatio.com, your privacy is our top priority. We are committed to protecting your privacy at all times, in all situations. The information we collect about you when you become a member is used to process your orders and to provide a more personalized experience on our site. Our site uses a 256 bit encrypted SSL to increase the security of our customer’s information. However,  GrillandPatio.com does not guarantee complete security on stored information. We have installed and applied our encrypted pages and installed our SSL certificate to prevent stolen information.

GrillandPatio.com will NOT share data. Your name and address information is used solely to process orders unless your prior consent is given. Without your consent, your information will NEVER be sold, given, rented or traded to others for purposes other than order fulfillment.

Your demographic information (address, phone number and email address, etc.) will be used for several security purposes, to ensure you are who you say you are and in fact you are paying with your credit cards and not someone using your stolen credit cards.

Order Verification/Fraud Prevention

In order to protect against fraudulent activity, GrillandPatio.com must verify the billing and shipping address. Please be certain to provide your exact billing address and phone number (the address and phone number your credit card's issuing bank has on file). Incorrect information will cause a delay in the processing time.

If your shipping address is different than your billing address (where you receive your credit card statement) and your order is over $1500.00, GrillandPatio.com requires a photocopy of your driver’s license and the front and back of the credit card used for the purchase. Please email copies to: sales@GrillandPatio.com.
