If you use BBQ Pitmaster Community, you do not wish others to run off with your personal data. And rightfully so. We would not want this either. This is why we do everything to keep your private information exactly that: private.
BBQ Pitmaster Community stores your personal data in a secured database and that is where they will remain. We do not pass on your information to third parties for commercial purposes. This we promise. To make the use of the site and your purchases as smoothly as possible, we will need some information from you first. What do we need to know from you?
- First and last names;
- Address and place of residence;
- Mobile phone number;
- Payment information ;
- When you pay by credit card, we will send your credit card information directly from our secure environment to our payment provider. They perform our credit card payments. We do not get to view your credit card information here. Our payment provider will only inform us if your payment was successful or not.
- IP address;
- By memorising your IP address we ensure that nobody else uses your ‘My BBQ Pitmaster Community account’.
- E-mail address;

The BBQ Pitmaster Community distributes cookies when you visit our website. Sorry, no brownies or biscuits or chocolate chip cookies, but small (temporary) text files for your computer. Thanks to cookies, you will not need to fill in or download the same information every time again when you return. That’s pretty useful! Moreover, cookies will help us to see how you use our website and how we can make it better and more customer-friendly. We have to admit: we also use them for marketing purposes.
You are free to disable cookies. However, be aware that the websites may then not perform in the best possible way.

Secure internet connection
We use a secure internet connection for our entire site. This way, others will not get the opportunity to sneak in and have a peek. Your transaction information is sent encrypted in SSL – pardon the technical mumbo-jumbo. You do not require special software to pay with SSL. You can recognise a secure SSL connection by the “green padlock” in your browser.
