Is this information shared with third parties?
We take your privacy very seriously and will not disclose your details to any third party without your permission.
We do employ third party service providers to perform various functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering your wine, sending postal mail and email, analysing data and providing marketing assistance. These service providers have access to the personal information they need to perform the service, but may not use it for other purposes. These providers are required to act within the provisions of the UK’s Data Protection Act.
For the purposes outlined above we may transfer information to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA). While we will ensure that the data is transferred within the provisions of the UK’s Data Protection Act, the legislation for each country outside of the EEA offers differing levels of protection.
We may be required to disclose your information if required by any applicable law or regulation.
How secure is my information?
We adhere to the rules of the UK Data Protection Acts 1984 and 1998 relating to the storage and disclosure of any personal information you have given us. This prevents unauthorised access or use of the data. Our security procedures mean we may request proof of identity before we can disclose information to you.
