Because WineLiquorMart.com is committed to your privacy we are making our information policies transparent.
Information Collection and Use
WineLiquorMart.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to anyone for marketing purposes. We will not share this information with others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. As explained below, information is shared with outside companies such as credit card processors, shipping companies, and others that need this information in order to provide services you request; information that is not personally identifiable is used for statistical and technical purposes. WineLiquorMart.com collects information from our customers at several different points on our website.
No registration is required in order to use this website, although a customer must create an account prior to any purchase. During account creation a customer is required to give their name, email address, zip code, and a password. This information is used to contact our customers about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest.
We request information from our customers on our order form. Here a customer must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). Phone numbers are now required as well, as part of the credit card verification process. This information is used for billing purposes and to fill the customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the visitor's hard drive containing information specific to that visitor's use of the website. Any information placed in the cookie is accessible only to www.WineLiquorMart.com, and will not be sold or shared with anyone else under any circumstances. We use a cookie to store a unique session identifier, and this allows us to maintain your shopping cart from one page request to the next. We are also able to maintain your session information from one visit to the next. By setting a cookie on our site, our customers do not have to log in more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a customer rejects the cookie, they may still browse our site. Unfortunately, the customer experience will be greatly curtailed, as the customer will be ask to log in to make a purchase.
We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill customers for goods and services.
We value your privacy very much at WineLiquorMart.com, and will never release any account information to anyone outside of the necessary core groups that help our business function, like those mentioned above unless our customers give us the authority to do so.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that WineLiquorMart.com is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our customers to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
Newsletter & Promotional Mailings
When our order form asks customers to enter sensitive information (such as credit card number and/or social security number), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL (Secure Socket Layers), a leading encryption software company available today. While on a secure page such as our order form, the lock icon on the bottom of Web browsers such as Firefox and Microsoft Internet Explorer becomes locked, as opposed to unlocked, or open, when you are just 'surfing'.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect customer-information offline. All of our customers' information, like the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices.
If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email to our Customer Service department.
Correcting/Updating Personal Information
If your personal information changes (such as your shipping or billing address, etc.), you can add new information or delete any addresses or credit cards from your account at the "My Account" page of our site. You can also modify your login information and opt out of our newsletter from the same page. Of course, if you prefer speak to a human, we can be reached at (718) 356-3944.
