Protecting Your Privacy

Bottlest is the sole owner of the information collected on this Site. We make every effort to ensure that any data that we store about you is kept secure. This privacy policy discloses our practices for the gathering and use of information from visitors to our Site.

 

Security

We encrypt all of our online ordering information including your name, address, and credit card numbers, to protect your billing information as it travels through the purchase system. In addition, all credit card transactions are verified and processed by a third-party financial institution that receives credit card numbers and other personal identifying information in an encrypted format. We take appropriate security measures to protect user data offline as well. Although we use our best efforts to protect the security of your information and our system, no security measures can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. You assume that risk by using the Site.

You do not need to set up a user id and password to use our Site because we do not require you to establish your identity when you visit our Site. However, if you have subscribed for some of our services, wish to become a member or are a customer seeking access to your account information, you will have to provide passwords. We recommend you do not divulge your password to anyone. Bottlest will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited telephone call or e-mail. You are responsible for the secrecy of your passwords.

 

Personal Information Collected by Bottlest

We collect certain non-personal, anonymous information when you visit our Site which helps us understand how visitors browse our Site, so that we can make the shopping experience better. In addition, we may also collect certain personal information that you provide to us, including name and email address, mailing address, birthday and other information if, for example, you complete our order forms, surveys, or registration forms, subscribe to our services or newsletters, become a member, or participate in one of our contests or sweepstakes.

 

Use of Personal Information
Personal information may be used in several ways:

To enable us to respond to you or to process, validate, and verify service requests and to perform the requested services
To allow us to charge and invoice you and to contact you regarding changes to the subscribed services
To give our Site designers information that is useful for developing new features and services
To tailor the customer's experience on our Site, showing them content we think might interest them or altering the content according to their preferences
To keep friends, members and customers apprised of our wine release dates, purchasing opportunities, special events and offers

We do not provide or sell your contact information to other parties, except as otherwise disclosed in this statement. Although we work with third parties, such as outside shipping companies and credit card processing companies, we require all such third parties to keep any information they receive confidential and to use any information provided only to provide services on behalf of Bottlest and the customer. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as necessary to provide you services and to maintain a record of your transactions for financial reporting and compliance purposes. If at any time you would like to remove your name or update the information you have provided, you may go to the Account Information section of the Site.

 

Chat Rooms and Forums

Our Site may have chat rooms, forums, message boards, and news groups. Any information you disclose in these areas becomes public information, and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information to people you do not know. If you disclose your e-mail address in a chat room or forum, you may receive unsolicited e-mails or spam from third parties. We cannot safeguard the privacy of any such information you choose to disclose online in this manner and you must do so carefully and at your own risk.

 

Legal Disclaimers

Bottlest reserves the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Site.

This Site may contain links to other sites. Bottlest is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Site.

Bottlest reserves the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, with or without notice to its customers.

 

Aggregate Information

We collect and accumulate anonymous data that helps us understand and analyze the internet experience of our visitors. For example, we may accumulate visitor data relating to referring domains, the type of browsers used, operating system software (e.g. Windows 95 vs. 98), screen resolutions, color capabilities, plug-ins, language settings, cookie preferences, search engine keywords and JavaScript enablement. We may also record number of visits, paths taken, and time spent on sites and pages.

Bottlest may share aggregate statistical information gathered from use of the Site with advertisers, business partners, sponsor or other third parties. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of visitors visited a certain area on a web site or that ABCdomain referred Y number of visitors to our website.
