On our website, you have the option to contact us to ask a question or provide feedback. You may also be able to register to receive information on our products or services, or enter into competitions, prize draws or other promotions that we offer from time to time. As part of an online fill-in form or registration process, we ask you to provide us with certain information (usually name, contact email address and phone number if you elect to be contacted by phone/text, address or postcode). Providing such data is voluntary, but it may be necessary to fulfill the activity you requested on our site.
At the time of collection of such information, we indicate what is mandatory (usually at least your name and email address) and what is optional. Where required by law to confirm your eligibility to participate, interact with us, or purchase or use our alcoholic products, we will ask you to confirm your age or date or birth. Such data collection happens in the following circumstances:
We will log and store the date/time of your submission.
When you use our website, we receive and record certain technical information by using cookies or similar technologies such as tags or pixels. We use these technologies for the following purposes:
We may collect personal data about you from third parties, including websites operated by third parties which are affiliated with us (for example, microsites which promote our products or promotions and are linked to our website).
We may share your personal data as follows:
We may also anonymise your personal data, so that is no longer possible to identify you from it. If we do this, we may share it with third parties in anonymised form.
When you use our site, your personal data may be sent to and stored in the United States.
We may also send personal data to countries towards which an adequacy decision has been granted. Where this is not the case, and where required, we enter into data processing and data transfer agreements that incorporate the UK International Data Transfer Agreement (“IDTA”) and associated addendum and Standard Contractual Clauses (SCCs) approved by the EU Commission to ensure an adequate level of protection of your personal data. These IDTAs and SCCs include certain provisions which protect your personal information.
We retain your personal data for as long as we need to address your query, provide the services requested by you or otherwise facilitated by your use of our website, or for other essential purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. After this time, we can keep your data due to our legal obligations (e.g., a period of 6 years thereafter is required for archival, audit and legal purposes) and for the purposes of our legitimate interests, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. Personal data of participants of prize draws, contests, competitions, sweepstakes, etc., is kept for as long as necessary to conduct the promotion and will be deleted after the deadline for complaints related to participation, extended by the reasonable time required for their delivery. In the case of winners or those who have submitted complaints, personal data will be retained until the expiry of statutory retention periods and statutes of limitation, such as applicable tax laws, for which data is retained for 6 years.
We take appropriate steps to protect personal data from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction, whether in transmission or storage. Please keep in mind, however, that there is no such thing as perfect security, and no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free.
When submitting data on our website, you may need to explicitly declare your consent to our processing of your personal data for the stated purposes (e.g., receipt of marketing communications from us, etc.). You are under no obligation to provide such consent and, if you choose to give your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time with future effect. We want to keep in touch with you in ways that you find to be beneficial. If, after giving your consent, you change your mind and you don’t want us to send you promotional communications anymore, you can let us know by following the instructions we provide to you at the time we send you the relevant communication or by sending us an email at DataPrivacy@ejgallo.com.
