Wine Intelligence is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain personal information when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy statement. In addition, Wine Intelligence will never sell your data to any third parties. From time to time we may have to share your data with a third party, expressly for the purpose of fulfilling the services and information you have asked us to provide. An example of this might be using a mailing fulfilment house to send you a copy of our WineIQ magazine. If this happens, the third party will be subject to the same obligations to keep your data secure and private, and only use it for the purpose you wish it to be used for.
We may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page every once in a while to ensure that you are happy with any changes. This policy is effective from May 2018.
What we collect
We may collect personal data such as your name, company, job title, and contact information when you purchase a report in order to provide you with an invoice and track the popularity of our reports. In addition, we keep All Access Membership emails and passwords on hand in order to provide optimum customer service – such as email you when you have forgotten your password.
We may also collect personal data such as name, company, job title, email address, and country of location when you sign up to our mailing list. We use third-party providers, MailChimp and Madmimi, to deliver our news and updates to those who request to be a part of our mailing list. Using these services, we gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our email communications. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice and MadMimi’s privacy notice. You can unsubscribe at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our emails. In addition, Wine Intelligence allows you to personalise what email communications you receive, such as Network News, Report Alerts, Event and Company Updates, and Vinitrac® Updates. You can change your preference at any time by emailing Courtney Abernathy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also use Google Analytics to monitor activity on our website. The data included in this is standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns, but does not identify anyone personally. Under this system, neither Wine Intelligence, nor Google, can make any attempt to find out personal information. We use this service to make sure we are providing relevant, pertinent and interesting topics to our visitors.
You are also entitled to access, amend or delete the personal information that we hold on file. Please email your request to Courtney Abernathy at email@example.com for more information.
