My Wine Deals has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to individual privacy. The following paragraphs delineate our information gathering, storage and retrieval practices relevant to the web site mywinedeals.com
In certain cases we may utilise your IP address to help investigate problems with our server or to administer our web site. We log IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, for tracking a user’s specific online visit, or to investigate cases of fraud or other potential security violations. Any personally identifiable information contained in our IP address logs will be treated with the same respect for your privacy as your order or registration information would be. The aggregate of IP addresses used to access our site may occasionally be analyzed to provide general demographic information about the community of users on the site.
Cookies are small bits of information that many web sites use to facilitate online navigation. This data is stored on your hard drive in a file that your web browser provides for this purpose. A cookie may contain information in the nature of a user ID, for example. Our site cannot read any other data on your hard drive, nor access cookies created by other sites. You must enable cookies in order to view our site.
Our site uses an order form for purchasing. When you begin the ordering process, you are sent to our secure server to ensure the security and safety of information collected as you place your order. You will notice at this point that the site address (URL) changes to the secure server of the company that hosts our web site. However, this company will never, in any way, use your personal information.
We collect visitors’ contact information (e.g. email addresses) and financial information (like account or credit card numbers). Contact information from the order form is used to deliver orders to our customers. Customers’ contact information is used to contact them when necessary to process orders. Financial information collected is used to confirm the users’ qualification for payment and to bill the user for products.
My Wine Deals does not sell, rent, or give away your personal information to anyone. We only release shipping information to the third party shipping companies (such as Fedex), and we only release credit card information to the actual credit card company for approval and authorization. Additionally, we may release account information when we believe, in good faith, that such release is reasonably necessary to a) comply with the law, b) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements, or c) protect the rights, property, or safety of My Wine Deals, our customers, or others.
This site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. All ordering information is encrypted via SSL when it is transmitted over the open internet. Systems in which personal information is stored are protected using state-of-the-art methods, and we routinely and dilligently monitor and upgrade our security systems to ensure that we use the best security technology available.
