Other forms of information or data collected
A cookie is a very small text file placed on your hard drive by a web page server. Cookies cannot be executed as malicious code or deliver viruses. Most browsers have the ability to handle cookies with three options; allow, notify the user, or decline. Most browsers are initially set to automatically accept them by default. You can set your browser to notify you when you have received a cookie, giving you the opportunity to decide whether to accept it.

If you do not wish to enable cookies but would like to order wine, please call (800)733-8068.
We may use either session ID cookies and/or persistent cookies. For the session ID cookie, once a user closes the browser, the cookie simply terminates. A persistent cookie is a small text file stored on a user's hard drive for an extended period of time. Persistent cookies are used to remember some of the information you've given us so you don't have to reenter it each time you visit the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following the directions in your browsers help section.
By showing how and when you use our site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. We then aggregate this information with other pieces of information to improve and update our site to make your experience on our site as valuable and efficient as possible. Cookies also allow us to store the personal preferences that you set during each visit to our site, which in turn allows us to speed up your future activities at our site.
We are committed to protecting the information we receive from you. Wherever your personal information may be held within Quady Winery or on its behalf, we follow reasonable technical, organizational, and management practices to protect the confidentiality and security of personal information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.
Quady Winery urges all internet users to take responsible and appropriate steps to safeguard their personal information to help protect their privacy while on the internet. While no computer system is completely secure and no transmission of data over the internet is guaranteed to be completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. Although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we cannot promise or guarantee, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or communications with us will always remain private. For example, we are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the site or your PC by unauthorized third parties that may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.
Our online store uses encryption technology to keep your personal information safe. All of your ordering information including your name, address, and credit card information is encrypted using a secure server. The server encrypts the data using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to provide for the secure transmission of the information from your PC to our servers. Your credit card and billing information cannot be read once encrypted as it travels to our ordering system.
Credit card transactions are securely handled by Nexternal, Quady Winery, and Sage Payments. Each entity is PCI DSS compliant. In addition, only those employees and third parties who need access to your information in order to perform their duties are allowed such access.

Third Party Cookies
The safety of minors is very important to us and we are committed to preventing the consumption of alcohol by persons under 21 years of age (minors). Our site is not structured to attract minors. Although we have an age gate in place, we have no way of knowing if a minor has manipulated their date of birth. We do not knowingly or intentionally collect any personal information from minors. If we become aware that we have unintentionally collected personal information from a minor, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our databases. We rely on parents, guardians and those responsible for supervising those under the age of 21 to decide what materials, sections of our site, and non-alcoholic items in the online store are appropriate for minors to view and/or purchase.
Although we cannot guarantee minors will not visit our site using a false date of birth, there are methods in place to prevent minors from purchasing alcohol from us. If you are under 21 years of age, purchasing alcohol from us is prohibited by law. Quady Winery along with our third party partners utilize various methods and technologies to prevent minors from purchasing alcohol from us. All of our shipments that contain alcoholic beverages are sent with an “Adult Signature Required" sticker on them. The common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery.

If you are a wine club member with a contractual relationship or have an order in process or shipping, there is certain information we must retain in order to properly service your account and to fulfill your contracts and requests. Furthermore, please be aware that even if you request your information be removed from our systems, such information may never be completely removed due to technical and legal constraints, including direct ship regulations, backup and disaster recovery systems, and some information to track the record of your requests.
