Personal Information

As a trading site, RICHART.com only collects personal information when you request our services and only uses the information collected to provide those services for you. If you choose to make a purchase, you will be asked to provide contact information (such as your name and shipping address) and financial information (such as your credit card number and expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to process your order. RICHART.com handles all of this data with the utmost confidentiality.

The volatile nature of the data collected on the RICHART.com site

In order to process your order, we have to be aware of and memorize certain parameters which are communicated to us by your computer: we have to know who you are, as well as the products that you are buying. Cookies are programs used with this sole aim: to memorize, for the duration of your visit to our site, your identity and the content of your shopping cart as you fill it. Once you have finished shopping, this data is automatically erased.
