Protecting Your Privacy
Protecting Your Privacy
We encrypt all of our online ordering information including your name, address, and credit card numbers, to protect your billing information as it travels through the purchase system. In addition, all credit card transactions are verified and processed by a third-party financial institution that receives credit card numbers and other personal identifying information in an encrypted format. We take appropriate security measures to protect user data offline as well. Although we use our best efforts to protect the security of your information and our system, no security measures can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. You assume that risk by using the Site.
You do not need to set up a user id and password to use our Site because we do not require you to establish your identity when you visit our Site. However, if you have subscribed for some of our services, wish to become a member or are a customer seeking access to your account information, you will have to provide passwords. We recommend you do not divulge your password to anyone. Summerland Wine Brands will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited telephone call or e-mail. You are responsible for the secrecy of your passwords.
