Privacy Policy

Effective Date: April, 2007 

The privacy of your personal information is very important to us. As such, Vineyard Connections, presents this policy to give our users a clear understanding of how we operate the Website (the “Site”) and how we handle your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns relating to privacy or security, please contact us. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy from time to time without notice. Please review this Privacy Policy from time to time so that you will be apprised of any changes. 

What Information We Collect
When you visit and navigate the Site, we will not collect personal information about you unless you provide us that information voluntarily. By "personal information," we mean data that are unique to an individual, such as a name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or credit card related information.

 When you register for any service or feature on the Site, we may require the following personal information: e-mail address and first and last name. We may also ask you to select a login ID and password.  If you register for any service under which Vineyard Connections  will process payments made by you, then we may require certain financial information (such as the name on the credit card, credit card number and expiration date), as well as certain personal information (such as your address and telephone number). 

How We Use Information
Because we consider any personal information you give us as confidential, Vineyard Connections  uses information collected from you in aggregate form only, except in the limited circumstances described below. In other words, we combine the information with data collected from other users to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information. We collect and use demographic information in order to improve the products and services we offer, to conduct market research, to generate profiles and reports, and to improve the overall experience of the Site. We also may share this anonymous, aggregated information -- which does not identify individuals -- with third parties.   Vineyard Connections  may use a user’s email address to send updates, a newsletter, or other information regarding the Site; users may choose not to receive emails of this type by updating their account information as described below.   However, we will not share any email addresses with third parties, unless you give us specific authorization to do so as described below. Credit card numbers will be used only during the billing process. Vineyard Connections will only disclose identifying personal information gathered from you to third parties under the following circumstances:  (1)  Vineyard Connections is required to disclose such information by any applicable law or legal process (like a subpoena or court order); or (2) Vineyard Connections  is required to do so to protect the safety of the public or other users of the Site, to enforce the Terms of Use, or otherwise to protect our rights.   

Vineyard Connections  utilizes generally-accepted security measures to protect against the misuse or unauthorized disclosure of any personal information you submit to us. However, like other Internet sites, we cannot guarantee that the Site is completely secure from people who might attempt to evade security measures or intercept transmissions over the Internet. 

Updating Account Information
We provide you with the ability to correct or update any information you have provided us. Simply click on the “Edit Settings” link on your “Profile” page.

Cookies are pieces of data stored on your computer's hard drive by a Web site. Cookies are an industry standard and used by most major Web sites to improve their services. Vineyard Connections  uses cookies for user convenience. The cookie will tell our system certain information so you don't have to fill in the same information each time you visit us. The Site can only read the cookies placed on your computer by us. We cannot access any information on your hard drive placed there by you or any other source. The cookie feature can be turned off on your browser. For more information on turning off the cookie feature, consult your browser "Help" section. If you choose to turn off cookies, you can still access all areas of the Site. However, you might have to "refuse" a cookie each time you encounter one searching the Site. 

IP Addresses
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider whenever you access the Internet. This number may be the same each time you access the Internet or it may change. Like other Internet sites, Vineyard Connections  uses IP addresses to collect aggregate information about numbers of visitors and site usage.  Vineyard Connections  reserves the right to use IP addresses to identify individuals if (1) Vineyard Connections  is required to disclose such information by any applicable law or legal process (like a subpoena or court order); or (2) Vineyard Connections  is required to do so to protect the safety of the public or other users of the Site, to enforce the Terms of Use, or otherwise to protect our rights. 

Chat and Discussion Areas
Please be aware that chat and discussion areas are public and that other users of the Site will have access to any information you provide about yourself in forums, messages or other areas on the Site, so consider carefully before sharing any personally identifiable information on the Site.  Remember that, as with all Web sites, it is impossible to verify another person’s identity, and users may, in fact, be younger or older than they make themselves appear to be on the Site. 

Other Web Sites
This privacy policy applies only as long as you remain on the Site. Once you leave the Site to visit another site, we have no control over your privacy or security issues even if you reached the other site by clicking on a link within the Site.  Vineyard Connections  assumes no responsibility or liability for the availability or content of these outside sites, including any products or services which may be available from such sites.  Therefore, any concerns a user may have regarding any other site should be directed to the relevant site administrator or webmaster. 

If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Policy, please contact us.
