Privacy Policy

Latest Update – September 30, 2017

This Online Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains how information is collected, used and disclosed by Brand Portal Pros Inc., operator of Wine Brand Portal, and applies to information we collect when you use or access our online websites (www.winebrandportal.com), products, services or applications (collectively known as BPP Services), or when you otherwise interact with us. We respect the privacy rights of users and recognize the importance of protecting information collected about you. If you use the Wine Brand Portal as part of an entity or organization that has an agreement with Brand Portal Pros (like your employer or a university), the terms of that organization’s contract for the BPP Services may restrict our collection or use of your information more than what is described in this Policy.

Changes to This Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any changes, we will notify you by revising the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy and, in some cases, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our homepage or sending you an email notification). If there are material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will notify you more directly by email or means of a notice on the home page prior to the change becoming effective. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy whenever you access the BPP Services to stay informed about our information practices and the ways you can help protect your privacy. Your use of any of the BPP services after the posting of such changes shall constitute your consent to such changes.

Information Collected

We collect information you provide directly to us.
For example, we collect information when you register with us for an account, create or modify your profile and online account, access and use the BPP Services (including but not limited to when you upload, download, collaborate on or share files or other information), participate in any interactive features of the BPP Services, participate in a survey, contest, promotion, sweepstakes, activity or event, make a purchase, apply for a job, request customer support, communicate with us via third-party social media sites or otherwise communicate with us.

The types of information we may collect directly from you include your name, username, email address, postal address, phone number, information about your data storage preferences, employer’s name, job title, transactional information (including services purchased or subscribed to and billing address) as well as any contact or other information you choose to provide. We also store the files or other information that you upload or provide to the BPP Services (“Content”) in order to be able to provide you with the features and functionality of the BPP Service.

Third party cookies: the use of cookies by third parties you may sign-in from into the BPP Services and/or third party applications, is not covered by our privacy policy. We do not have access or control over such cookies.

Information We Collect From Other Sources.

We may also obtain information from third parties and combine that with information we collect through the BPP Services. For example, we may have access to certain information from a third-party industry contact listing service if you create or log into your online account through the service or otherwise provide us with access to information from the service. Any access that we may have to such information from a third-party industry contact listing service is in accordance with the authorization procedures determined by the social media service.

Vendors, Consultants and Other Service Providers: We may share your information with third-party vendors, consultants and other service providers who are working on our behalf and require access to your information to carry out that work, such as to process billing, provide customer support, etc.

Primary Account Holder: The Primary Account Holder is the organization that has contracted to use BPP Services and may register users. If you are a registered user of the account of a Primary Account Holder, Wine Brand Portal Pros may share your information with that organization.

Corporate Account: If you are an individual registered user of BPP Services and the domain of the primary email address associated with your BPP Services account is owned by your employer and was assigned to you as an employee of that organization, and such organization wishes to establish a BPP corporate account, then certain information concerning past use of your individual account may become accessible to that organization’s administrator including your email address.

For Collaboration: We may share your information, including when you choose to use collaboration features in the BPP Services that by their nature support sharing with third parties who you choose. Your name, email address, information from your profile and online account (including your photo), and any Content you choose to share will be shared with such third parties, and such third parties may communicate with you (such as by posting comments or emailing you) in connection with your use of the collaboration features of the BPP Services. For example, third parties who you invite to collaborate with you as using collaboration features of the BPP Services may also modify Content that you have shared, upload documents and photos to Content you have shared, share such Content outside of the BPP Services, and provide other third parties with rights to view the Content you have shared.

Compliance with Laws: We may disclose your information to a third party if (a) we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, (b) to enforce our agreements, policies and Terms of Service, (c) to protect the security or integrity of the BPP Services, (d) to protect Brand Portal Pros, our customers or the public from harm or illegal activities, or (e) to respond to an emergency which we believe in the good faith requires us to disclose information to assist in preventing the death or serious bodily injury of any person.

Aggregated or Anonymized Data: We may also share aggregated or anonymized information with third parties that does not directly identify you.

Security

While no service is completely secure, Brand Portal Pros takes reasonable measures to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Sensitive information such as credit card number and password that we request from you on the BPP Services is protected with encryption, such as Secured Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, during transmission over the Internet.

The servers on which personal information is stored are kept in a controlled environment with limited access. While we take reasonable efforts to guard personal information we knowingly collect directly from you, no security system is impenetrable. In addition, we cannot guarantee that any passively-collected personal information you choose to include in documents you store on our systems are maintained at levels of protection to meet specific needs or obligations you may have relating to that information.

You may access your account information and our service only through the use of an individual user ID and password. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused. In addition, always logout and close your browser when you finish your session. Please note that we will never ask you to disclose your password in an unsolicited phone call or email.

Links to Third Party Websites

We may place links on the BPP Services. When you click on a link to a third party website from our website, your activity and use on the linked website is governed by that website’s policies, not by those of Brand Portal Pros. We encourage you to visit their websites and review their privacy and user policies.
