Scope of Policy
This policy applies to BBCo’s treatment of personally identifiable information that BBCo collects through BBCo’s Website and when you use BBCo’s services. The policy does not apply to practices of companies whose websites may be linked to BBCo. For access to the privacy policies of such linked websites please refer to the information provided by such websites at their home pages. Also see the paragraph below under the heading “Hypertext Links.”
As we operate internationally, and our computer systems are currently based in the United States, your personal data will be processed by us in the U.S. where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union.
Information Collection and Use
We may collect personally identifiable information (your name, address, telephone number, age and email address) when you voluntarily subscribe to a service offered on our Website. This information is used solely by BBCo or other companies who are involved in the operation of the Website. BBCo does not sell, share or disclose this information to third parties.
BBCo does not seek to collect such information from persons under the age of 21. If you are under the age of 21, please do not submit any such information to us. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 21 who has provided such information to us, please inform us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove such information from our database.
By showing how and when guests use the site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. If you accept the first tracking cookie from bardstownbourbon.com, you won’t be offered as many afterwards.
Managing Your Information
About IP Addresses
BBCo collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers, if applicable. An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the web. Web servers—the big computers that “serve” up web pages—automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When guests request pages from bardstownbourbon.com, our servers log their IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us.
BBCo employs reasonable measures to maintain all personally identifiable information provided by you on computer servers in a controlled and secured environment in an effort to hinder unauthorized access, loss, alteration, use or disclosure of such information. However, the nature of the Internet is such that information may be transmitted over networks without appropriate security measures and may be accessed, deleted, altered, used or disclosed by unauthorized persons.
Modifications to this Policy
BBCo may make modifications or amendments to this policy from time to time. In the event that such changes alter how BBCo gathers, processes, uses or discloses your personally identifiable information, BBCo will post such changes on our site.
