Drop-In Wine LLC (“Drop-In Wine”) considers the privacy and security of user information an important component of the service offered at its website, dropinwine.com (“Site”). The following information explains how Drop-In Wine collects and uses information obtained from its registered users in connection with services available at the Site (taken together, the “Service”).
What this Policy Covers.
This Policy covers Drop-In Wine’s treatment of personal information that Drop-In Wine gathers when you are on the Site and when you use the Service. Also, this Policy covers Drop-In Wine’s treatment of personal information that Drop-In Wine’s business partners share with Drop-In Wine. This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Drop-In Wine does not own or control, or to individuals that Drop-In Wine does not employ or manage.
Personal Information Collected and How We Use It.
- A) Information You Provide to Us:
We may receive and store information you enter on the Site or otherwise provide to us. You can choose not to provide us with (or prevent us from receiving) certain personal information, but this may prevent your access to special features that comprise the Service. The personal information you provide may be used for such purposes as responding to your requests for certain information and products and services, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about the Service. In order for you to use certain features of the Service, you may be required to complete a registration form. As part of this registration form/booking form, you must provide your name and your email address.
- B) Automatic Information:
We may receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with the Site. Drop-In Wine may automatically receive and record certain “traffic data” on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, Drop-In Wine cookie information, and the page you requested. Drop-In Wine uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its server, analyze trends and administer the website.
Generally, our service may automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our website and its components. This data is only used in the aggregate and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of collective data enables us to determine how often users use parts of the Site, so we can make the website appealing to as many users as possible. In addition, we may provide statistical information, not information about you personally, to our partners about how our users, collectively, use our website. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use their areas and our website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal web experience.
Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously. While Drop-In Wine will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
- C) E-mail Communications:
We may receive a confirmation when you open an e-mail from Drop-In Wine if your computer supports this type of program, in order to help us make e-mails more interesting and helpful. We may also send out emails with news or promotions. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please notify us by e-mail at email@example.com and include sufficient information for us to identify your account.
- D) Information from Other Sources:
In order for us to develop a more personalized service offering, we may receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.
Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we may transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our website are visited and by how many people. Drop-In Wine cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your email address is.
Sharing of Information.
We will neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone without your consent. We will not share your personal information except in the following circumstances:
Drop-In Wine may disclose personal information when you have provided consent to do so.
Protection of Drop-In Wine and Others.
Drop-In Wine may transfer personal information to any successor to all or substantially all of its business or assets that concern the Service.
Aggregation of De-identified Information and Statistics.
Drop-In Wine and its commercial partners may use de-identified and or aggregated information gathered from your profile and your usage of the Site and related statistics in order to improve the services provided through the Site, for certain research and analysis including clinical medical research and/or reporting and for other commercial purposes. De-identified information does not include personally identifiable information relating to Registered Users such as name, email address, or address, but may include gender, height, weight, postal code, and medical information such as diagnosis and stage of illness. Aggregated information is information from multiple users that cannot be “re-identified”, or associated with any individual user or account.
Information You Share With the Public.
The Site will allow you to post information into a public forum. If you post personal information into a public forum, the public will have access to such information. Please note, once you make a public posting through the Website, you may not be able to change or remove it.
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Our agents are obligated to meet the same level of privacy protection with respect to your personal data as we do. Unless we tell you differently, Drop-In Wine’s agents do not have any right to use the personal information we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Updating Your Information.
If you have an account, Drop-In Wine allows you to access the following information about you for the singular purpose of viewing, and in certain situations, updating that information:
- User ID
- Email Address
As stated previously, you can always opt not to disclose information, even though its omission may prevent you from taking advantage of certain features of the Site and services.
You are able to add or update certain information on pages, such as those listed in the “Updating Your Information” section above. When you update information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records.
You may request deletion of your Drop-In Wine account by sending e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that some information may remain in our records after deletion of your account.
You must be 21 years and older to register to use the Service. As a result, Drop-In Wine does not specifically collect information about children.
