Our Commitment to Privacy
Information Collected by SMSF on This Site
When you visit the Site, we 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. No personal information is requested or collected by us on the Site.
Protecting Your Information
SMSF is the sole owner of the non-personal information collected on this Site. As noted above, no personal information is requested or collected by us from you on the Site. We make every effort to ensure that any data that we store about you is kept behind a secure firewall in our database and is not accessible to the public in any way. Sensitive information, if any, that we collect from you is encrypted with SSL, a standard internet security measure. We do everything in our power to protect user data offline as well by restricting access to information to only those employees who need the information to perform a specific job. Although we use our best efforts to protect the security of your information and our system, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, no transmission via the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Therefore, you assume that risk by using the Site.
We will not sell, share, or rent information collected from you to others, except as otherwise disclosed in this statement, and you, our customer, have the right to prevent this disclosure at any time (at no cost to you). Although we work with third parties, such as licensed wineries to transact the sales, outside shipping companies to ship orders and credit card processing companies to bill users for goods and services, we require all such third parties to keep any information they receive confidential, maintain the privacy of all our customers, and to use any information provided to only provide services on behalf of SMSF and the customer. All 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.
From time to time, we may also employ other companies and individuals to perform services, to maintain and operate the Site, and to maintain certain features on the Site. To such parties, we may disclose non-personal information such as traffic patterns and website usage data, but in no event will we disclose any personal information. Again, we require all such third parties to keep any information they receive confidential, maintain the privacy of all our customers, and to use any information provided for services on behalf of SMSF
We will retain and use your information only as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. If you have any questions about the security of our Site, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SMSF reserves the right to disclose your information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our Site.
This Site contains links to other sites. SMSF is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Site.
SMSF reserves the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, with or without notice to its customers.
