At Simply Wine we do not sell, rent, lease or otherwise disclose your email address or other personally identifiable information or personally identifiable customer data to others, and we will not make your personal information available to any unaffiliated parties. This section explains how we use your personal information.
Quality Control and Routine Maintenance: Simply Wine uses the information that you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the Simply Wine features and services to Simply Wine affiliated merchants. We may share your information with our trusted third party affiliates and partners, to ensure that you have a safe, high-quality experience when using Simply Wine affiliated merchants.

All such third party affiliates and partners are required to preserve the confidentiality of any personal information they may access.
We may use certain information about you without identifying you as an individual to third parties. We do this for purposes such as analyzing how the Simply Wine service is used, marketed and improved, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing content.
Administrative Contact: We will use your email address, without your further consent, for administrative communications to you. If you wish to change your communication settings, you may do so by accessing your Simplywine.com account and making the modifications directly.

We may use or distribute this aggregated data without your consent. This data cannot be readily reversed engineered to derive your individual personal data.
Legal Compliance: We may also disclose information where we are required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose information in response to a law enforcement agency’s or other public agency’s request or if we feel that such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety, to protect the security or integrity of our websites, or enable us to take precautions against liability.
