Signing Up As A Subscriber
In order to receive regular updates we encourage visitors to our website and our Facebook pages to sign up for our mailing list and newsletter. Subscribers will receive regular updates via email on subjects that interest them such as wine tasting notes, new releases, wine news and developments, wine education, wine country profiles, wine reviews, and the like. Each email will have an option to Unsubscribe and be removed from receiving future emails. In the event you continue to receive emails after unsubscribing, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will see to it that you are removed.
When you subscribe, we do not share your information with anyone other than information collected by Search Engines in the normal course of internet traffic and Search Engines data collection practices (more information below).
In the event a subscriber wishes to purchase a product that is listed on our website, or Facebook pages, or that we emailed you about, information is collected and shared with our partners for billing and shipping purposes. For example, if visitors wish to purchase a wine, we request that they establish direct contact with us to qualify them as being of legal age to purchase alcohol and to obtain their billing and shipping information. That information is shared with our fulfillment partner, Wine Country Connection, who processes, bills, invoices, and ships the wine through third party shipping companies. More information is available on the Terms of Service page.
Like many — perhaps most – other Web sites, our website makes use of log files. That’s partly for security, so we can identify any problems before they occur. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.
