Cookies are combination of strings and numbers that identifies your visit to our site. As http is a stateless protocol it is not possible to establish a connection between two visits of a customer to our web site.

To protect our members, we use 128bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt the information you send us when you place your order. The information is encrypted on your computer, sent through the Internet as jumbled code, and decoded on Karakoy Gourmet’s secure server. It cannot be read in transit. The information we store on our server is protected by firewalls and intrusion detection systems. Only authorized personnel have access to that information with certain restrictions.
