And here's the (very) long version...

  1. Sommelier Cellar Wines Ltd. is responsible for the website and is committed to protecting your privacy and security.
  2. From time to time we may invite you to supply personal information in order for us to authenticate your identity or to provide you with services. In order to deliver such services, we will need to process and store your personal information and may need to transfer it to the relevant partner(s) for processing. By submitting your personal information, you consent to such processing in connection with such orders, offers or services and for any other purposes to which you consent at the time you provide the information or as provided in this privacy policy.
  3. SommelierCellar is registered in accordance with and seeks to comply with the UK Data Protection Act 1998. We follow appropriate security procedures in the storage and disclosure of personal information so as to prevent unauthorised access by third parties. We also require those parties to whom we transfer personal information to comply with the same. However, the Internet is not a totally secure medium and you acknowledge and agree that SommelierCellar shall not be responsible for any unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of personal data, except to the extent we are required to accept such responsibility by the Data Protection Act 1998.
  4. This Policy only applies to the use that we make of data provided to us via the Internet and email. Other uses may be made of data provided to SommelierCellar in correspondence, by telephone or by other means not detailed in this Policy.
  5. Why We Need To Collect Information From You

    We will notify you as to the types of information we are collecting about you as well as the uses we intend to make of that information. We may use the information we collect about you to notify you from time to time about important new features and changes to our online services or special offers, competitions or promotions we think you'll find of interest.
  6. Special Promotions

    Occasionally a third party may sponsor a promotion, offer, competition or page of the website and you may be asked to provide personal information including name, email address or home address or to answer questions in order to participate. In those circumstances we may transfer personal information to those named third parties that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy policy will apply.
  7. Who Else Will We Provide Your Data To

    Subject to what we say below, we will not pass on your personal details to any third party, including site sponsors or advertisers, without your consent. In order to provide goods and services to you we may need to provide your data to our agents and service providers. We may provide aggregate statistics about our users, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to our third-party partners (if any), but these statistics will not contain any information about you from which you could be identified.
  8. If you enter any competitions on this website it may be necessary for us to provide your personal information to the promoters of the competition or to others that are involved in the organisation of the competition or the prize-giving.
  9. Also, we may transfer your personal information to purchasers or subsidiaries (and potential purchasers or subsidiaries) if SommelierCellar acquires, or is acquired by or merged with, another company. This will enable you, for example, to continue your relationship with SommelierCellar despite a change of ownership.
  10. We may also need to provide your data to our subscription and other fulfilment agents in order to provide goods or services to you.
  11. Content Posted by You

    Of course, if you post any personal information to any bulletin boards or forums, this information will immediately be made available to other users throughout the world who may use it to send you unsolicited communications. Furthermore, in some circumstances we may display some of your personal information (name data) when you post material to the website to allow users to identify each other.
  12. Security and possibility of international transfer.

    Please note that countries outside the EEA may not have the same level of protection as countries within the EEA, but we always demand that those parties to whom we transfer data adhere to the same security procedures that we follow ourselves. By submitting your personal information, you consent to such processing and transfers in connection with such orders, offers or services and for any other purposes to which you consent at the time you provide the information.
