You may withdraw your consent to our collection, use, and disclosure of your Personal Information at any time, on reasonable notice, subject to legal or contractual restrictions.

For instance, withdrawal of consent may make it impossible for us to provide or to continue to provide certain products, services or information to you.

We will not refuse to provide a product or service to you if you choose not to provide us with your Personal Information, unless the failure to provide such information makes us unable to provide such product or service to you.

Karat has implemented security safeguards, appropriate to the sensitivity of the information, to protect Personal Information in our control against loss, theft, and unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification. These security safeguards include organizational, technical and physical measures.

Any Personal Information you provide to Karat on the Website during the ordering process is exchanged on a secure server. We use an advanced security system, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, to encrypt, or encode, information you send to us in the order process. The encryption process protects information, such as your credit card number, and billing and shipping information by scrambling it before it is sent from your computer. Only once we receive your information is it decoded, and we use all reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our own systems.

When you create an account on the Website, your account information is protected by the password you use to access your online account. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. Karat will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (including unsolicited correspondence such as letters, phone calls or email messages).

We strongly encourage you to use our secure ordering process when ordering online, as email correspondence is not a secure means to send information. Please take note that Internet or wireless communications are never completely private or secure and there is always a risk that any messages or information you send to or through the Website may be intercepted by others.

You should also be aware that certain aspects of the Website are not confidential and are available for public viewing. By making information publicly available where the Website allows, you consent to such publication by Karat or its service providers. Please refer to the Terms of Service & Conditions of Use for additional provisions relating to user submissions that may apply to you.

We may arrange with a third-party to facilitate the collection of customer product reviews on products sold by Karat. When you submit a product review to Karat, you are also subject to our third-party’s terms of use and privacy policies.

Accordingly, you should review those policies prior to submitting a review. Also, reviews you submit may be posted on our site as well as on our third-party’s site.


Karat does not routinely update Personal Information. If our records regarding your Personal Information are inaccurate or incomplete, we can update your Personal Information at your request. Requests for correction of your Personal Information should be directed to Karat’s Privacy Officer.

Karat account holders and subscribers to our email, newsletters, or catalogues may also update their contact information at any time by using our online subscriber services.


At your request, Karat can provide a statement explaining the extent to which we hold Personal Information about you and how that information has been used or disclosed by us. In order to verify that the information is being released to the proper individual, you may be asked to provide suitable identification or otherwise identify yourself.

If Karat is unable to provide you with a list of organizations to which we have actually disclosed your Personal Information, we will provide you with a list of organizations to which we may have disclosed your Personal Information.
In certain circumstances, access to Personal Information may be denied. If we deny your request for access, we will advise you of the reason for the refusal.


Karat reserves the right, in its discretion, to change this privacy policy at any time and from time to time. All changes will be posted to the Website and will apply to any Personal Information collected on or after the date posted. Karat will treat your continued use of the Website following any such posting as your acceptance of the revised terms. All changes will remain in compliance with applicable federal and provincial privacy legislation. We encourage you to check this privacy policy regularly for changes.
