WineWire Inc. is committed to protecting the privacy of its users and the confidentiality of their personal information. Personal information supplied to WineWire Inc. will not be used to place users on any mailing lists without the express consent of the individuals to whom the information pertains. Under no circumstances will we sell, trade, or exchange user’s personal information with third parties.

This Privacy Policy identifies the ways WineWire Inc. protects the privacy and confidentiality of the personal information it collects in person, over the Internet or on the telephone. It also outlines the manner in which WineWire Inc. collects, uses, discloses and manages the personal information of its users.


The term “personal information” means information about an identifiable individual, including name, address, email address, telephone number and other information relating to an individual, as further defined under applicable Canadian laws.


WineWire Inc. may request or collect personal information from online users in a variety of ways, including through online forms for ordering products and services, and other instances where users are invited to volunteer such information. WineWire Inc. may also collect information about how users access the website using a tracking ID unique to each user through the use of cookies.


"Cookies" are little bits of information that are sent to your computer when you visit a website. They are saved, either temporarily or permanently, on your hard drive, leaving a trace of your passage. The information can include such things as the date and time of your last visit, a given answer to an online question, personal information, etc. Cookies can also enhance your web experience by recording your navigation preferences for a given website.

Cookies cannot access files or other information stored on your computer. The website requires cookies to function, and uses only transient secure cookies. Communication of your personal information is completely through SSL (Secure Socket Layers), ensuring that no one else can view your data while you are signed on. We never store your personal information in cookies or use cookies to track your internet use after you leave our website.


Like most standard websites, WineWire Inc. uses log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. However, none of the information stored in our log files, including but not limited to IP addresses, is linked to personally identifiable information.


WineWire Inc. may use the personally identifiable information collected on the website to contact users regarding products and services offered by WineWire Inc. to the extent the user has agreed to it. We may also use this information for research purposes regarding the effectiveness of our website services, marketing, advertising and sales efforts. WineWire Inc. will not in any way share this information with a third party either for free or by selling it, unless you specifically authorize such disclosures.


WineWire Inc. may also disclose aggregate, anonymous data based on information collected from users to investors, wine agents and partners. In such cases, statistical information only will be disclosed and personally identifiable data will be kept strictly confidential.

WineWire Inc. may from time to time engage third parties to preserve, analyze or otherwise store or manipulate data received by WineWire Inc. from its users. In all such cases, such third party service providers will be required to treat all such data with the same degree of care and confidentiality as WineWire Inc. and they will be prohibited from disclosing such data to any other person or party, except as otherwise provided for in this Privacy Policy.


Our users will occasionally receive information on products, services, special events, and possibly a newsletter. Out of respect for the privacy of our users we present the option to not receive these types of communications.


When you enter a contest, competition or participate in a promotion, we may collect your name, address, phone number, email address, and other information you provide. We use this information to administer your participation in the contest, competition or promotion. At the time you enter the contest, competition or promotion, we may obtain your consent to send you future promotional communications. If a contest, competition or promotion is jointly sponsored by WineWire Inc. and one or more sponsors, your personal information may be shared with such sponsors, as specified at the time of collection of your personal information. We do not control the use, disclosure or security of your personal information by other sponsors, and recommend you review their respective privacy notices or statements.


From time to time, we may offer you the opportunity to participate in one of our surveys or other customer research. The information obtained through our surveys and customer research is used in an aggregated, non-personally identifiable form. We use this information to help us understand our customers, to enhance our product and service offerings, promotions and events.


Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy, we may need to disclose personal information when required by law, if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary and required to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on WineWire Inc.


The information provided to WineWire Inc. is saved indefinitely and may be stored on one or more databases directly or indirectly maintained by WineWire Inc. WineWire Inc. employs industry standard security measures to protect the confidentiality of this information. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur; we make every effort to prevent such occurrences.


You are responsible for the security of your User ID and password. Make sure you keep them in a safe place and do not disclose them to others. Always remember to log out after your session ends to ensure that others cannot access your private personal information. You should take this precaution even if you are not using a public computer, such as at a library or internet café, but even when using your private computer in your home.
