Information Collection and Use
FIGARO’S WINE & Liquors is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. FIGARO’S WINE & Liquors collects information from our customers at several different points on our website.
No registration is required in order to use this website, although a customer must create an account prior to any purchase. During account creation a customer is required to give their name, email address, zip code, and a password. This information is used to contact our customers about the services on our site for which they have expressed interest, and to verify that the customer is of legal age.
If you make a purchase in person, by telephone, or online we will request additional information from you. Here a customer must provide contact information (name, billing and shipping addresses, phone numbers) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used for billing purposes and to verify the customer is the actual party placing the order. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
We collect contact information for gift recipients in order to ensure correct gift delivery. We do not sell or rent any contact information for gift recipients. Beyond completing delivery of their gift, we do not contact gift recipients in any way.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the visitor’s hard drive containing information specific to that visitor’s use of the website. Any information placed in the cookie is accessible only to FIGARO’S WINE & Liquors, and will not be sold or shared with anyone else under any circumstances. We use a cookie to store a unique session identifier, and this allows us to maintain your shopping cart from one page request to the next. We are also able to maintain your session information from one visit to the next. By setting a cookie on our site, our customers do not have to log in more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a customer rejects the cookie, they may still browse our site. Unfortunately, the customer experience will be greatly curtailed, as the customer will be unable to log in or make a purchase.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track customer’s movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
FIGARO’S WINE & Liquors will share aggregate demographic information with its partners. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill customers for goods and services. Our website is supported by the Beverage Network who help with the technical operation of our website and provide additional service as required. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We value your privacy very much at FIGARO’S WINE & Liquors, and will never release any account information to anyone outside of the necessary core groups that help our business function, like those mentioned above unless our customers give us the authority to do so.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that FIGARO’S WINE & Liquors is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our customers to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.
