Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website (and any third parties they work with) and to manage elements of their business. Without certain cookies, some areas and functionalities of a website will not work (e.g. user logins).
We use the following types of cookies:
- Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential for the operation of our site to enable you to move around our site and use its features. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our site. Without these cookies our site does not work properly.

USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Information collected shall only be used for the express purposes it was collected for. Four Winds Vineyard will not disclose the information to any third parties except where it may be disclosed to a third party, such as a courier or mail delivery service, for the purpose of fulfilling the order. Four Winds Vineyard may disclose personal information if authorised or required by law, but will not disclose your personal information in any other instance without your consent.
DATA QUALITY AND SECURITY
Four Winds Vineyard will make reasonable attempts to ensure personal information supplied is correct and up to date, and will protect personal information from misuse or loss by keeping all details secure and inaccessible to the general public and employees who do not require access to the information. Four Winds Vineyard’s website uses industry standard SSL encryption to help protect credit card details as they are transmitted between your computer and the website.
Four Winds Vineyard does not store any credit card information. Instead, credit card transactions are processed by a secure payment gateway, which are PCI compliant. When a transaction is made, the payment gateway encrypts the card details and saves it as a data token. For recurring transactions, such as a subscription, or if a refund is required, Four Winds Vineyard uses the data token, ensuring that we never have access to your cardholder data. Tokenisation is a data security feature where sensitive information, such as an account number, is effectively replaced with a non-sensitive alternative made up of a random string of characters, called a token.
ACCESS AND CORRECTION
Individuals have the right to access and modify their personal information by logging into their account or contacting us direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
Four Winds Vineyard may employ third-party companies and individuals for the following reasons:
- To facilitate our services;
- To provide the service on our behalf;
- To perform service-related services; or
- To assist us in analysing how our service is
Users of these services are advised that these third parties have access to your personal information only as necessary to perform the tasks assigned to them on our behalf.
However, they are obligated not to disclose or use the information for any other purpose.
We value your trust in providing us your personal information, so we are always striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
