Wine Ring is a personalized experience, and so by nature we have personal information about you. We deeply respect your privacy, and want you to know exactly what we do and what we don’t do with that personal information. We’ll be sure to keep this privacy summary updated as our products evolve. If you have any questions, we’re here: just email [email protected] or give us a call at (855) 573-5573.
We may share all or some of your wine ratings or preferences, but only in such a way that it is aggregated with other users or does not include your name or email address. We will not identify you individually unless you give us permission to do so. We allow you to share your wine ratings and preferences with third parties, through postings on social networks or email. If you share your information this way, we provide that information only to the third parties that you choose. We intend to allow you to share your wine ratings and preferences with our commercial partners, such as retailers or restaurants. If you decide to share your information this way, we will provide that information only to the retailers and restaurants that you choose, so that you may benefit from an independent commercial relationship with them, such as through a loyalty program. We aren’t responsible for the privacy policies of any third parties, so you should make sure to review those if you do decide to share your information.
We intend to expand our product line to include group recommendations and gift recommendations. Consequently, we may use your wine ratings and preferences to determine recommendations for a group that includes you and your friends and that generally doesn’t reveal individual wine ratings or preferences to other Wine Ring users. We may also use your wine ratings and preferences to allow others to get gift recommendations for you, which if you choose to share your preference styles with others, will allow them to see your preferences, but not your specific wine ratings. We also intend to offer you the ability to share your wine ratings and preferences with others that wish to follow you. In any case you will have the ability to opt out of being a part of any or all of these functionalities. Images of wine labels that you submit through our application will be used by us to identify wines that you are rating or adding to our system, and may be used to enhance our soon to be released image recognition technology.
While we seek to protect your personal information from disclosure using our technology, we simply can’t guarantee that there won’t be a breach of our or our providers’ systems. However, we promise that we will comply with applicable notification laws if such a breach occurs. Wine Ring is about wine, and so our products are intended to be used by adults, not children. We seek to comply with all the laws and regulations that may apply to us. One such law is California’s ‘Shine the Light’ law, under which California residents who provide personal information when obtaining products and services are entitled to request, once a year, information about the customer information we shared, if any, with other businesses for their own direct marketing uses. If you would like this information from us, please send an email to [email protected] with ‘Request for California Privacy Information’ on the subject line and we will provide it to you. Not all information sharing is covered by that law and only information on covered sharing (if any) will be included in our response. We also note that both Wine Ring and our servers are located in the United States, so if you are accessing our platform from outside the United States, please understand that you are engaging with us in the United States, and its privacy laws apply. Finally, by submitting any wine label image to us for wine identification, you grant us a perpetual, irrevocable license to use that image in connection with our products and services.
