Adopt-a-Vine Privacy Policy

 

Background statement

At adoptavine.com we are committed to provide you with an environment where your privacy is protected to the standards generally applicable from time to time.  Our Privacy Policy may be amended in the future for any reason and if changes are made they will be posted on this web-site prior to their implementation wherever possible.

PII

Your Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is collected in order that we can facilitate your membership of the adopt-a-vine program, assist in the delivery of your member benefits under the program and the renewal of that membership at some future date.

What information is collected

We only collect enough information to satisfy the services outlined above.  The information collected is submitted by you (or the person that bought the package for you) at the time you first joined the program.  If you become aware of any errors in that information, or if you need to amend it, then please contact adptavine.com via the Feedback page of the web-site.

How is it used

We will only use your PII so that we can provide you with the benefits of membership.

Who else sees your information

Your information will also be made available to the people that operate the winery/vineyard at which you have your adopted vine.  This is so that they too can provide you with membership benefits.  Each operator vineyard has a signed agreement with Adopt-a-Vine Pty Ltd that restricts them from passing on your PII to other persons.  We will not sell or give access to your personal information to any party unless legally obliged to do so.

Protecting your information

To ensure the safety of your PII our web-site employs the latest security measures that are regularly checked and updated to industry standards.  Your information will be processed and stored on computers located in Australia and under Australian privacy protection and commerce laws.
The website database and web server is hosted in a Tier 1 hosting environment with physical and firewall security. For more information please click here.

Derived information

We may use the aggregated information collected from all members in the data-base to derive statistical and demographic information so that we can better understand the attributes of our membership throughout the world.  This information will be anonymous and not include anything that could create a breach of a member’s PII.
