This following document sets forth the Privacy Policy for the Vinloco websites, and and related smartphone apps.

Vinloco is committed to providing you with the best possible user experience. Vinloco is bound by the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth), which sets out a number of principles concerning the privacy of individuals. When using any of our services you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

  1. Collection of your personal information
    1. Information provided by you

There are many aspects of our services which can be used without providing personal information. However some aspects of our service require you to submit personally identifiable information such as Vinloco customer support. This may include but not limited to a unique username and password, or provide sensitive information in the recovery of your lost password.

We also collect the content and other information you provide when you use our services, including when you sign up for an account, create or share or use our services to connect with a third party such as an advertiser. This content can include information in or about the content you provide, such as the location, date and time of a search or price and vintage information entered to our app. We also collect information about how you use our services, such as the types of searches you conduct or the frequency and duration of your activities.

All such information is held securely on our server.

1) Device information

We collect information from or about the computers, phones, or other devices where you install or access our services, depending on the permissions you’ve granted. We may associate the information we collect from your different devices, which helps us provide reliable services across your devices. Here are some examples of the device information we collect:

  • Attributes such as the operating system, hardware version, device settings, file and software names and types, battery and signal strength, and device identifiers.
  • Device locations, including specific geographic locations, such as through GPS, Bluetooth, or WiFi signals.
  • Connection information such as the name of your mobile operator or ISP, browser type, language and time zone, mobile phone number and IP address.

We collect information when you visit or use third-party websites and apps that use our services (like when they use our measurement and advertising services). This includes information about the websites and apps you visit.

2)  Information from third-party partners

We receive information about you and your activities on and off Vinloco from third-party partners, such as information from a partner when we jointly offer services or from an advertiser about your experiences or interactions with them.

Sharing of your personal information

We may occasionally hire other companies to provide services on our behalf, including but not limited to handling customer support enquiries or processing transactions. Those companies will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. Vinloco takes reasonable steps to ensure that these organisations are bound by confidentiality and privacy obligations in relation to the protection of your personal information.

1)  Sharing With Third-Party Partners and Customers

We work with third party companies who help us provide and improve our Services or who use advertising or related products, which makes it possible to operate Vinloco and provide free services to its users.

We do not share information that personally identifies you (personally identifiable information is information like name, email address or mobile number that can by itself be used to contact you or identifies who you are) with advertising, measurement or analytics partners without your permission. We may provide these partners with information about the reach and effectiveness of their advertising without providing information that personally identifies you, or if we have aggregated the information so that it does not personally identify you. For example, we may tell an advertiser how its ads performed, or how many people viewed their ads or connected with their website from an advertisement on our services or provide non-personally identifying demographic information (such as 25 year old Brisbane female who likes sweet wine) to these partners to help them understand their audience or customers, but only after the advertiser has agreed to abide by our advertiser guidelines.

From time to time, we may use customer information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. If our information practices change at some time in the future we will use for these new purposes only, data collected from the time of the policy change forward will adhere to our updated practices.

Use of your personal information

We use your information to send you marketing communications, communicate with you about our Services and let you know about our policies and terms. We also use your information to respond to you when you contact us.

Newsletter Opt-Out.

If you have chosen to opt into our newsletter or marketing emails and decide to opt out, we have a simple unsubscribe form that will let you get off our email list. To unsubscribe, click the link on the bottom of our newsletter or email include your email address and name.

Vinloco does not sell wine itself.
