What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent to and stored on your computer, smartphone or other devices for accessing the internet, whenever you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user's device. At WINERY CLASSIC LTD, we use cookies for a variety of reasons, such as to determine preferences, let users navigate between pages efficiently, verify the user and carry out other essential security checks. Some of the functions that cookies perform can also be achieved using similar technologies. This policy refers to ‘cookies’ throughout, however, it also covers these alternate mechanisms. More information about cookies can be found on allaboutcookies.org.

How cookies make our website safer and easier to use

We use cookies to safeguard your privacy when you're browsing our website. If you leave a secure session window open when logged in to your personal area, we use cookies to enhance your security by prompting you to end (or automatically ending) your secure session. Cookies can also allow us to tailor the content of our website to suit your interests. For example, instead of displaying promotional messages about products you already have, they let us show you other services you may be interested in. Finally, we use ‘analytics’ cookies to help us make our website better for those who visit it regularly. They help us work out what users like and don't like and how we can improve things for you. When we include links to other websites, please bear in mind they will have their own privacy and cookie policies that will govern the use of any information you submit. We recommend you read their policies as WINERY CLASSIC LTD is not responsible or liable for their privacy practices.

How we work with trusted third parties

Third parties are trusted suppliers to WINERY CLASSIC LTD. They include partners who provide important functionality to our website and partners who help us improve our website, such as Google, who provide statistics about which pages are visited most frequently. We only use cookies from third parties in order to provide our customers with WINERY CLASSIC LTD products and services. The only time cookies would enable us to share personal information such as your name, address, telephone or email is when you have given us express consent to pass it on to a trusted third party. You will only ever be shown WINERY CLASSIC LTD -branded advertisements on our website - never those from other companies. Of course, you may see WINERY CLASSIC LTD - branded advertisements when browsing other companies' websites too. Some of these will be general campaign-related adverts but others will be tailored to your likely interests based upon previous web browsing activity - these can be easily identified as they feature a small blue AdChoices icon in the corner of the advert.

How we improve our email

We use email analytics and reporting tools to see how many of our emails are opened and which links receive the most clicks. Knowing which articles and topics our customers like and which they don't like helps us improve our content and make our emails more relevant. We maintain strict security standards and procedures to prevent unauthorized access to information about you. WINERY CLASSIC LTD will never contact you by email or otherwise to ask you to validate personal information such as your user ID or password. If you receive such a request, please don't reply. If you wish to unsubscribe from marketing emails, please click on the link located in the footer of any marketing email you've received from us.
