Privacy Policy

Kan Herb Company values its customers and respects their privacy. Our policies are intended to ensure that your personal information is handled safely and responsibly. We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties.

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology is used during transmission of personal information, such as credit card data. SSL is the gold standard in Internet encryption technology, it is a highly sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our servers.

To take advantage of this technology, your browser software must support 128-bit encryption (nearly all modern browsers do). Look at the lower left-hand corner of your browser window after accessing the server. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on your browser), you may be assured that SSL is active and the server is secure. You can also double-check by looking at the URL line of your browser. When accessing a secure server, the first characters of the site address will change from "http" to "https."

If you can't access the secure server for any reason, please print our order form and place your order by phone at 800.543.5233.

Some versions of browsers and some firewalls don't permit communication through secure servers. In that case, you won't be able to connect to the server and therefore won't be able to place an order through an insecure connection.
