If you’d like to opt out of future mailings from Wine Stork, LLC, follow the procedure outlined in the Choice/Opt-out section below.

We may share your information with third parties who provide services on our behalf to help with our business activities. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us. We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We value your privacy at WineStork.com, and will never release any account information to anyone outside of the necessary core groups that help our business function unless our customers give us the authority to do so.

We may also disclose your personally identifiable information when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request, and, with your prior consent to do so, to any other third party.

SOCIAL MEDIA WIDGETS
SURVEYS & CONTESTS
Our site requests information from users via surveys and contests. Participation in surveys and contests is voluntary and the user can choose to disclose information or not. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code and age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. This information may be used for marketing opportunities by WineStork.com if authorized by the registrant, and will also be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
When our order form asks users to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL (Secure Socket Layers) provided by VeriSign, the premier encryption software company available today. On a secure page such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers’ switches to locked, as opposed to unlocked mode, and back to open mode when you are just browsing.
We also use various methods to protect user data offline. All sensitive information is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a Customer Care representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information, and are required to lock their station when they leave their station.
All employees are kept up to date on our security and privacy practices. Every quarter and whenever new policies are implemented, our employees are reminded about the importance of keeping customer data secure and safe at all times. The servers with personally identifiable information are stored in a locked and secure environment.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to: support@WineStork.com.
SALE OF OUR COMPANY
As a natural consequence of the development of our company, we could be sold to another company. In the event that another company acquires us or a significant portion of our assets is sold to another company, all customer data including financial records and consumer information collected on WineStork.com may be transferred to the new company. You will be notified by messaging on our website of any such change in ownership or control of your personally identifiable information.
