Personal Information and Data Gathering

Schweiger Vineyards often uses third-party development partners to assist in online development and deployment as well as in data and information collection. These partner companies are strictly bound by our privacy policy covered below, as well as by all other conventions and business practices of Schweiger Vineyards concerning user information and data from online sources. For the purposes of this document, the terms ``We,`` ``Us`` and ``Schweiger Vineyards`` will also represent these third-party developers. We collect anonymous information from visits to our site to help us understand the usage patterns of our site, and to provide better customer service. Information collected in this manner is provided automatically by your system and the systems that you use to connect to our site. For example, we keep track of what time people enter our site, how long they stay on our site, and what sections they visit on our site. This information is kept in aggregate, anonymous format. We use this information to better tailor our site to our visitors and to their usage patterns, as well as to gauge performance and other measures of the site, again in anonymous and aggregate format. Cookies are sometimes used to further track usage patterns of the site by users, in aggregate and anonymous format. Cookies left on your system by our site are sometimes used for the purpose of allowing users the convenience of not having to re-enter usernames and passwords on our site, however, no username or password information is kept on your local machine. Only a unique identifier is kept on your system that will allow you to access the records stored on our secure, password-protected server(s). No financial or personal information will ever be left on your system in the form of a cookie. We may utilize third party companies in an effort to deliver you tailored content and advertising that matches your interests when you visit our website as well as other websites.

We will collect general contact information, such as your name and email address, as well as demographic information, such as age, gender and zip code.

Contact information is also used to better understand our user base. From time to time, Schweiger Vineyards will contact our registered users who have opted in to be e-mailed with promotional information that we feel would be applicable to, and desired by that user. At any time a user wishes to opt-out of these emails, they may do so by contacting thefamily@schweigervineyards.com. Once opted-out, the user will no longer receive communication from us, aside from any system messages that are necessary to that user in specific transactions, such as e-commerce order summaries. Our site uses a third party service to match browser cookies to your mailing address. We then use another company to send special offers through the mail on our behalf. Our company never receives or stores any of this information and our third parties do not provide or sell this information to any other company or service. To opt-out of receiving our direct mail, you may send us an email at thefamily@schweigervineyards.com. We will honor those requests, but please understand that it may take about 10 business days for such mailings to end.
