WineNDine knows that you care about how your personal information is collected, used and shared. We take your privacy seriously.
The App allows you to indicate your preferences for wine, drink, food dishes of all types and varieties and restaurants and other purveyors of food and/or drink, and include photos of the foregoing (“Preferences and Photos”). These Preferences and Photos will be shared with other users of the App to provide those users the benefit of your experiences. By uploading Preferences and Photos to the App, you explicitly disclaim any copyright or other intellectual property rights in the Preferences and Photos and acknowledge and agree that the Preferences and Photos are in the public domain and may be copied and reprinted by third parties without any legal consequence.
WineNDine may use your name, email address, and/or phone number to send you notifications regarding the Service, including but not limited to announcements, alerts regarding postings by other users or Service-related notifications. If you do not wish to receive email, phone or other communications from WineNDine, you can indicate this preference in your privacy settings.
Personal Information such as your name and email address may be provided by existing users of the App who wish to invite you to join the WineNDine community by downloading the App. This information will not be visible to third parties and will be used solely for purposes of the invitation unless and until you join WineNDine by downloading the App and becoming a registered user.
Non-Personal Information. Like many Apps, we collect and store certain information from users by using cookies. These cookies confirm that a user is logged in and tell us how and when the App is utilized. This information is aggregated in order to help us understand how our Service is used. Our cookies do not store your Personal Information. We treat cookie-generated data as non-Personal Information except where otherwise required by law. We may also use third party analytics tools such as Google Analytics to obtain non-personal information that is used in the aggregate to help us understand how our Service is used.
WineNDine takes reasonable precautions to protect user information, including locating account information on a secured server behind a firewall. Sensitive information (such as passwords) is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). However, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We therefore cannot and do not guarantee that information you provide through the Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of information may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored the information. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send sensitive information to us by email or instant messaging services.
SHARING OF INFORMATION
Among Users. The Service is designed to help registered users share information, including without limitation, Preferences and Photos, with other registered users, including your “followers.” By default, your user name is available for purposes of searching by other registered users of the Service. All sharing of information is done at your own risk, and individuals may disclose this information to third parties without WineNDine’s consent.
With Third Parties. WineNDine does not rent or sell your Personal Information to anyone without your permission. However, your Preferences and Photos are freely available to users of the App, restaurants and other food and beverage establishments and purveyors, and third party advertisers and advertising agencies. Otherwise, we do not share your Personal Information with third parties unless WineNDine believes such sharing is (1) reasonably necessary to offer the Service, (2) authorized by the user or (3) required by law.
We may provide information to third party service providers such as server hosts, data management companies and search engines (“Agents”) in order to facilitate the operation of the Service. These Agents may be granted temporary access to Personal Information in order to perform these services. WineNDine takes reasonable measures, including contractual protections, to limit the use of Personal Information by Agents to the specific purpose for which it is reasonably necessary.
WineNDine complies with judicial requests for Personal Information, account information, and other information and makes other legally required disclosures, provided that WineNDine does not reveal such information unless and until we believe in good faith that the request therefor meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Service, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.
Information that you choose to provide through certain features of the Service may be published on the App, which may be indexed by third party search engines.
CHANGE OF CONTROL
The Service is intended solely for users who are twenty-one (21) years of age or older. Any registration by, use of or access to the Service by anyone under 21 is unauthorized, unlicensed and in violation of the Terms of Service. By using the Service, users represent and warrant that they are age 21 or older.
Individuals under the age of 21 are prohibited from registering on the Service and WineNDine does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 21.
