TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED AND HOW IT IS USED

Through the use of the Company Sites, the Company markets wines and related products directly to consumers, and offers consumers the opportunity to create a personal account with the Company (the "Account") or to log in to the Company Sites as a guest (the "Guest Log-In"), and to take advantage of the various products and/or services, including, without limitation, the opportunity to purchase wine and related products from licensed retailers in their state and to register as members of the various wine clubs that the Company services (the "Wine Clubs") (collectively, the "Wine Services"). The sale and delivery of orders purchased by consumers will be executed and fulfilled by third party retailers holding valid licenses issued by state alcohol beverage agencies allowing for the legal sale of wine.

Personal Information

Although many areas of the Company Sites do not require registration and may be accessed by you without you having to disclose any personal information, when using the Wine Services and or other aspects of the Company Sites, we or our service providers may collect and use the following categories of information, some or all of which may be considered personal information:

(a) (b) (c) (d) (e)

We collect personal information from you when you voluntarily provide it directly to us and directly from you or indirectly from your or from your browser or mobile device when you engage in activities on the Company Sites. We also receive personal information from partners, cooperative databases, and personal information supplementation services, and share personal information with such sources.

We use the personal information we collect for various commercial and business purposes, including to:

(a) (b) (c) (d) (e) (f) (g) (h) (i) (j) (k) (l) (m) (n) (o) (p) (q)

Depending on the activity, some of the personal information we collect is required and some is provided by you voluntarily. If you do not provide the required information for a particular activity, you may not be permitted to engage in that activity.

The personal information that you directly provide to us to create your Account will be available for viewing by visiting the Company Sites and entering your personal log-in information that you create when registering your Account. By creating an Account, you may also utilize the "My Wine Cellar" feature of your Account, which tracks your order history, status of pending orders, favorites, preferences, credits, and Wine Club memberships. If you choose not to create an Account but to instead place orders by using a Guest Log-In, you may contact the Company to review or update the personal information you have provided by using the telephone numbers and/or addresses listed below under the heading entitled "Contact Information."

If you ever use a public computer to access the Company Sites, we strongly encourage you to log out at the conclusion of your session.

Additional Information

When you visit the Company Sites, we may also collect certain non-personally identifiable information from you ("NPII"), including, without limitation, website usage information about how our visitors use and navigate the Company Sites, including the number and frequency of visitors to each web page, the duration of their stays, the visitor's browser and operating system, the domain name of each visitor's Internet service provider, and certain other information (e.g., clickstream data). We may aggregate IP addresses into NPII, to report aggregate information to our business partners or to audit use of the Company Sites. We may share NPII with others without express notice to you or consent from you, and we may exploit, use and disclose your NPII without limitation of any kind.

We and our partners may also collect certain information automatically, including through the use of cookies, web beacons and other technologies. We use "cookies" (i.e., small pieces of information placed on your computer hard drive) on certain parts of the Company Sites. Cookies allow websites to remember user activity and visits to a site. We use cookies on the Company Sites to determine the number of unique visitors we host on the Company Sites over any given period of time, to direct you to an appropriate retailer based on your shipping state and to keep track of items placed in the "shopping cart" during a visit to the Company Sites. We do not use cookies to collect personal information. You can program your computer to warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or disable cookies on your computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menus in your browser. However, by blocking all cookies you may not have access to certain features on the Company Sites. We may use third party advertising companies to serve ads or conduct email campaigns on our behalf. These companies may also employ cookies to provide services to us.

We and advertising companies that we use may also use "pixel tags" (sometimes called "web beacons" or "clear gifs"), which are tiny graphic images, on the Company Sites. Pixel tags help us analyze users' online behavior and measure the effectiveness of the Company Sites and our advertising and marketing. We may also use other analytical tools to evaluate site performance through the use of aggregated data, which contain no personal information. We work with service providers that help us track, collect and analyze this information.

We may also track certain information about the identity of the Company Sites you visited immediately before coming to the Company Sites. We do not otherwise track any information about your use of other Company Sites. Cookies, pixel tags, and/or other analytical tools in our emails may also be used to track your interactions with those messages, such as when you receive, open, or click a link in an email message from us.

We may combine the NPII collected through cookies, pixel tags, action tags and other analytical tools with other information we may have collected from you. This information may be used to improve the Company Sites, to personalize your online experience, to help us deliver information to you, to determine the effectiveness of advertising, and for other internal business purposes.

Ads appearing on the Company Sites may be delivered to users by us or one of our advertising partners. Our advertising partners may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad servers may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that it believes will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Statement covers the use of cookies by us and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers. If you wish to opt-out of such advertising, third-party available third-party tools to opt-out include the Digital Advertising Alliance and the Network Advertising Initiative.

WITH WHOM INFORMATION MAY BE SHARED

Except as disclosed in this Privacy Statement, the Company does not share your personal information with unaffiliated third parties, other than as described below concerning Brand Partners. We may disclose your personal information to outside individuals and/or companies for the business purpose of helping us: (i) bring you the products and services we offer; (ii) create, operate and maintain the Company Site(s); and (iii) with specialized services such as payment processing, shipping, mail and e-mail distribution, mobile messaging, website(s) hosting, monitoring, analytics, promotions management, survey taking and mobile payment processing. We provide these third-party individuals and/or companies only with the information they need to perform their services. For mobile payment processing, the mobile payment service providers will provide your information to your mobile telephone service provider to bill you directly. We also work with third parties, such as ad networks, analytics companies and social networking platforms, and they may collect information about your online activities over time and across our sites and other online services. We require that these outside individuals and/or companies agree to keep all information shared with them confidential and to use the information only to perform their obligations to us. We may also contribute to or participate in cooperative databases, which give other companies access to your personal information.

We work with certain strategic partners (the "Brand Partners") in connection with the creation and operation of various co-branded Wine Clubs, which are promoted by us and our Brand Partners. We disclose only the personal information required to make these particular Wine Clubs work and to support your membership with them, which typically includes your name and/or email address, as well as information regarding the purchases you make through the particular Wine Club. We disclose this information to our Brand Partners under an agreement that requires that they maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal information in the same manner the Company does. If you do not wish to receive marketing, promotional, or other communications from our Brand Partners, you must contact them directly.

We may sell, transfer or otherwise disclose user information, including personal information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of all or substantially all assets or of a business group, or other corporate change of the Company.

We may disclose information about our users, including personal information, when legally required to do so at the request of governmental authorities conducting an audit or investigation, or to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing the Company Sites and applicable laws, rules, and regulations. We may use IP addresses to identify users in cooperation with Internet service providers or law enforcement agencies, and may also disclose user information whenever we believe disclosure is necessary to limit our legal liability or to protect or enforce the rights, interests or safety of the Company Sites, our users or others.

The Company may share NPII with third parties. We may use and share aggregated and anonymous NPII to conduct market research and analysis for ourselves and/or for our business partners. Given the anonymous, non-personally identifiable nature of such information, there are no restrictions under this Privacy Statement on how we may use or disclose such information. For example, we may freely share such information with third parties who may use such data for their own marketing, advertising, research, or other business purposes. We may also freely share such information with our service providers in order for them to perform services to or for us. We authorize certain service providers to utilize NPII for their business purposes and in accordance with their privacy policies, such as to report on usage or industry trends to their customer base.

If you opt out of cookies, you will not be able to take advantage of various features of the Company Site(s) that are available to other users. For example, we may use cookies to recognize you by name when you return to a Company Site so you don't have to login again and provide your password.

We are only required to respond to a particular customer's request for such information once during a calendar year. To make such a request, please send us an email or write to us at the addresses listed below under the heading entitled "Contact Information."

Rights and Choices for California Residents

The California Consumer Privacy Act ("CCPA") provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes California residents' CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights. If you are a resident of a state other than California, we may respond to requests in ways that differ from responses that are required only under California law.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your request, we will disclose to you:

(a) (b) (c) (d) (e) (f)

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies. We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers to:

(a) (b) (c) (d) (e) (f) (g) (h)

Please note that because we archive and keep track of past transactions, the Company will deny requests to delete information associated with past transactions or archived information on the Company Sites.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to at the Contact Information provided below or on at our website at: Deletion Request Link

Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative. Our processes for verifying requests include matching identifying information that we already have on record to provide services to the customers.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request's receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance. We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Right Not to Sell or Share Personal Information

You have the right to opt-out of us selling your personal information. The contributing of personal information to a cooperative database may be considered a sale of that information under the CCPA. For an opt-out request and additional information concerning your right to opt-out, click on this link: Do not sell my personal information. You may also contact us through the Contact Information provided below.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

(a) (b) (c) (d)

NON-CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION

We do not want you to send to us any confidential or proprietary information through email or otherwise. Any information, materials, suggestions, ideas or comments sent to us will be considered non-confidential, and by submitting the same to us, you are giving us the absolute right to use, modify, reproduce, transmit, display and distribute the information for any purpose whatsoever, with no payment or other compensation to you. However, we will not use your name unless we are required by law to identify the source of the materials, information, suggestions, ideas or comments, or unless we first obtain your permission.
