Privacy and Anti-Spam Policy

For each visit to a page on one of our regional web sites (WineCountry.com, NapaValley.com etc.) as well as the sites we host, our web servers automatically record the domain name or IP address, but not the e-mail address of the surfer.

The only way we or our clients obtain your email and or physical address is if you enter it in a form.
If you do enter your email address on a form, it will be used to: deliver information you requested; and/or to improve our services to you. Your email address will not be sold to other organizations for commercial purposes. We may offer you the opportunity to receive special promotions from us and other companies. If you elect to receive such offers (or do not indicate a preference not to receive such information), we will use the information provided by you to send those offers.

Freerun Technologies, Inc. (FTI) and all related network websites and affiliates shall own the usage information and traffic patterns specific to use of said websites and applications employed on those websites, which could include personally identifying information. Freerun Technologies shall have the right to use such data as reasonably necessary to perform its obligations and to improve its services. In addition, FTI shall have the right to collect, use and distribute said data in the aggregate so long as any aggregated data provided to any third party does not contain personally identifiable information regarding any end user.

We may also use postal address information provided by you to send, among other things, product catalogs and magazine offers. Additionally, we may use information about your activities on our website(s), your purchases, and your computer equipment to improve the performance of our website, and to customize the content and layout of our website. We may supplement information collected from the website with similar information obtained from our affiliates, companies with whom we have marketing or other business relationships, and other third party sources. Postal address information that you submit in conjunction with any print publications requested through the use of the website network may be shared with WineCountry.com advertisers, our affiliates, and other companies with whom we have marketing or other business relationships.

We are totally against spam.
If you receive unsolicited email from any of our clients, please notify us at abuse@freerun.com. Include the offending email with all the headers intact.  Please be aware that it is not uncommon for spammers to hide behind someone else's email account, as well as use mail servers that they do not own.

Can I “opt-out” of receiving e-mail promotions?
Absolutely. You may choose not to receive promotional emails or newsletters from us by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in the specific e-mail from which you wish to opt-out. We will respond to a request made pursuant to these methods as promptly as practicable. Even if you elect to stop receiving promotional e-mails from us, we may still contact you to tell you important information about us or our website(s).

Newletters and emails may contain information and offers from third party sponsors. Even if you have directly communicated to these third-party sponsors that you do not wish to receive promotional communications from them, you are deemed still interested in receiving winecountry.com and affiliates newsletters and emails knowing that they may or may not contain information from companies with whom you have opted out.

Can WineCountry.com change our Privacy Policy?
Yes. We reserve the right to change this Policy in order to address future developments of WineCountry.com, its website(s) or changes in industry or legal trends. Depending on the nature of the change, we will either announce the change on the home page of the website(s); provide notice via e-mail; or take other action as we deem appropriate under the circumstances. By continuing to use the website(s) following an announcement of any change, you will be deemed to have agreed to such change. If you do not agree with the terms of this Policy, as it may be amended from time to time, in whole or part, please do not continue using our website(s).

We have the following exceptions to these policies: We will release specific information about you or your account to comply with any valid legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the websites, or a physical or property threat to you or others. We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of related assets or corporate division or other fundamental corporate change.

Further, the information you enter when making a purchase or an online donation will be shared with payment processors, financial gateways, and your credit card company to authorize credit card payments. Such information may also be shared with necessary third parties solely for the purpose or carrying out the transactions.

Please note that if you give out personal information online -- for example, on one of our public forums such as the message boards -- that information can be collected and used by third parties. Although we strive to protect our users' privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of information you post in these forums. You disclose such information at your own risk.
