Security Policy

At Fairfield Cheese Company we are committed to safeguarding and preserving the privacy of our visitors. All e-mail addresses and personal information (such as name, address, credit card number, etc.) are transmitted in an encrypted form for your protection. All information is collected for our use only; Fairfield Cheese Company protects this information both online and offline.

This Security Policy explains how we secure your information following the Payment Card Industry Date Security Standard (PCI DSS). PCI DSS is an information security standard for organizations that handle credit card and debit card information. Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council, the standard was created to increase controls around credit card data to reduce credit card fraud via its exposure.

Is Fairfield Cheese Company’s website PCI Compliant?

Yes, Fairfield Cheese Company’s website is certified Level 1 PCI DSS compliant.
We are very serious about protecting your personal information and have invested significant time and money to certify our solution is PCI compliant. From annual on-site assessments validating compliance to continuous risk management, we work really hard to ensure our shopping cart software and our ecommerce checkout process is secure.

Is my personal information safe?

Your payment and personal information is always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over the Internet. We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card number when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
