Categories of Information We Collect
We collect and store certain personal information about you at various points in order to provide you with products and services. We collect this information from information that either you provide us directly or gathered from your devices. As discussed further below, we are required to collect certain information from you such as your age and residence in order to sell and ship you wine legally. We also use this information and additional information we collect to customize our services to your preferences and provide you with products and services that we believe will appeal to you.
California defines certain categories of “personal information.” We collect information that falls into the following categories directly from you and your electronic devices, as well as from other publicly available sources. Your information is not disclosed except when necessary to carry out our business purposes via our service providers:
Why We Collect Your Information
We do not sell your personal information. We share information with our service providers in the categories listed above only when necessary to carry out the purposes below. We collect your information to manage our relationship with you and send you communications, and for a number of our other business purposes, including the following:
You must be of legal age to use the Site or to purchase any alcoholic beverage. If you wish to purchase any alcohol containing beverage from us, you may be required to provide personal information sufficient to verify that you are over 21 years of age. If you do not provide information to verify that you are of legal age, we cannot provide any services to you. We also cannot ship any product to you if you do not provide an address at which a person over the legal age is available to receive the product. We do not knowingly collect nor do we sell personal information from individuals under 21, nor do we direct any of our content to individuals under 21. If we learn that we collected the personal information of a minor, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.
To carry out transactions for you, we are required to collect and provide your information to certain of our service providers in order to process orders and shipments, store your data, and manage e-mail distribution.
We also use the information we collect for our marketing purposes. If you would like to opt out of our use of your information for marketing purposes, or to be removed from our email list, you may contact us at . Even if you opt out, we may still send emails to you concerning specific transactions or other non-marketing related messages. Our service providers are not permitted to use your information for their own marketing purposes, unless they have an independent relationship to you and have obtained your information from another source.
When you visit the Site, we also collect some basic non-personal information about you and your browser. Examples of such non-personal information that is collected include what type of browser and operating system you are using, how long you remained on our Site and what pages you looked at while here. This non-personal information is anonymous and helps us understand how visitors browse our Site, so that we can make their shopping experience better. We do not make any efforts to identify you from this non-personal information.
OTHER WEBSITE FEATURES
We occasionally offer visitors to our website various features for their information and enjoyment, which we may change from time to time.
How Long We Keep Your Information
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 you wish to cancel your account, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will keep your order history on file indefinitely so that we can always provide you with information on what you ordered previously unless you ask us to delete it.
Your Rights to Access, Correct or Delete Your Data, and “To Be Forgotten”
If you so desire, we will provide you with a copy of your account data or delete your account at your request. We will also fix any mistakes you alert us to in your information. You can request any changes to your personal information by contacting us at email@example.com Up to twice a year, you may ask us whether we are collecting, storing, using, disclosing or selling your personal information, what categories and specific pieces of personal information of yours we are collecting and storing, the categories of sources from which our personal information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting your personal information, and whom we may have shared your information with.
You may request a copy of the categories of personal information we have about you by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling us at 707-226-8300. We may contact you further to verify your identity if we do not have sufficient proof in your request, such as the request being sent from your email address that matches the one we have on record. If you request specific pieces of information, to verify your request you will need to provide a declaration to us via mail at 1310 2nd Street Napa, CA 94559. We will work diligently to respond to your requests and will provide you with a free response within 45 days.
If you would like us to delete your data, please contact us at email@example.com or by phone to 707-226-8300. Depending on the nature of the data that you request we delete, we may require you provide two or more data points that match the information in our file. Note that even if you request deletion, we may continue to retain and use information as may be authorized or necessary under California Law. While you have the right to request that we delete the personal information you provide to us and we will not discriminate against you for exercising any rights that you have, we may no longer be able to sell you any alcohol containing beverages if you ask us to delete your information showing you are of legal age or are in a location where it is legal for us to sell to you, and you may need to make other arrangements to verify your age and location to facilitate transactions.
We will verify your identity for purposes of such a request to delete or a request to know. If you have an account on the Site, we will verify your request for information through your account. If you do not have an account, we will verify your request depending on the nature of the request. If you request to know the categories of information, we will request that you provide two pieces of information that match our records, which may vary depending on the information we have on file. If you request to know specific pieces of information, we will require additional verification to match three pieces of information on file, as well as a signed declaration. If you would like to designate an authorized agent to make such a request or your behalf you may do so by providing us with your signed permission of such authorization, verify your identity with us as described above, and confirm that you provided the authorized agent permission to submit the request; or your agent must provide proof of a power of attorney.
In order to ensure protection of your information from fraudulent requests, in the event the requisite verification is not satisfied, we may deny the request for access to your account data or to delete your account for your protection.
Protecting Your Information
Quintessential is the controller of the information collected on this Site. We outsource certain aspects of our data processing operations to our Service Providers, as discussed below. We make every effort to ensure that any data that we and our processors store about you is kept behind a secure firewall and is not accessible to the public in any way. Any sensitive information (such as credit card number) that we collect from you is maintained securely by our Service Providers. We protect user data offline as well by restricting access to information to only those customer care employees who need the information to perform a specific job. Employees are kept up to date on our security and privacy practices and are aware of the importance of keeping customer data secure and safe at all times.
Although we use our best efforts to protect the security of your information and our system, and we have agreements in place with our processors requiring them to do the same, no transmission via the internet or storage of data can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of this and other factors beyond our control, we cannot guarantee the security of the information that you transmit to or through our Site. Therefore, you assume that risk by using the Site.
If you have any questions about our site, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
Automated Decision Making
Neither we nor our third party processors employ any automated decision making except in the context of processing orders for sales of alcohol beverages. In that context, if the information we have on file for you does not show you to be of legal age, or shows an address where we are unable to ship, or your payment information fails to be authorized, we will not be able to process your order. If any of those issues occur, please contact us at email@example.com and we will attempt to resolve the issue.
Do Not Track Signals
Some browsers have incorporated “do not track” features to enable users to make privacy and security choices. By using these settings, your browser may send a signal to our website not to collect tracking information. The Site does not respond any differently to “do not track” signals. Information tracked by the Site through cookies is discussed above.
Data of Minors
The Site is not directed at children and cannot be accessed by persons who do not verify that they are of legal drinking age. As a result, we will not knowingly collect information from minors of any age in the U.S., including those under 16, with or without consent from their parents or guardians.
Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. If we learn that we collected the personal information of a minor, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe we have inadvertently collected the personal information of your minor child, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
