These “Privacy Highlights” provide an overview of some core components of our data handling practices. Please be sure to review the Full Privacy Statement below.
“Confidential Information” means all and any data, information, documents, and other ideas limited for use by only Company or Participant that can be used to distinguish or trace the identity of the Participant, either alone or when combined with other Participant or Participant identifying information that is linked or linkable to the specific Participant;
“Aggregate information” means information that has been stripped of your winery name, personal name, and contact information and combined with information of others so that you cannot be identified as an individual, with third parties. This Information is different from “Confidential Information” and is not Personal Information because it does not identify any particular individual or disclose any particular individual’s data. For example, Aggregate Information may include a statement that “The average winery producing less than 10k cases in Napa is down -30% in Tasting Room Sales for the year” without providing any data specific to any individual user.
“Customer Information” means all and any data, information, documents related to customers of Participant including any transaction, email, name, etc.
