Phillips occasionally collects and stores personal user information in connection with promotions at www.phillipsdistilling.com. Whenever information of that kind is collected, Phillips checks the ages of all site visitors before accepting information from them. No information is collected from guests under the age of 21.
From time to time, Phillips requests personal information such as your name, e-mail address and birth date. For example, we may request personal information when you register to enter a promotion such as a sweepstakes or contest. Whenever Phillips collects and stores such personal user information, information you provide will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent; however, Phillips may share aggregate information about our visitors (for example, what percentages of our visitors are male and female) with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties in order to customize the content of our site to deliver a better experience for our visitors. Whether Phillips collects personal information for complying with your requests or in connection with your participation in a promotion or for purposes of verifying your compliance with Phillips policies and federal, state, and local laws, and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes, we will collect only such information as is necessary for those purposes and nothing more. We will not collect any information from users under 21 that is not necessary for participation in promotions such as sweepstakes or contests or fulfillment of requests for information, prizes or premium items. Phillips may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Phillips’ rights or property, other Phillips users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Phillips may also disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
Information provided at the time of registration or submission from a guest who is 21 years of age or over may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by Phillips. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, you may opt out of receiving communications from Phillips about new features or services. If you object to such use for any reason, you may remove your address from our database by replying to an email from Phillips with “REMOVE” as the body copy.
USE OF IP ADDRESSES
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. Phillips collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our promotional partners, and to audit the use of our site. When guests request pages from Phillips sites, our servers log the guests’ IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Users should be aware that when they are on the site, they can be directed or linked to other sites, the content and practices of which we have not reviewed and are beyond our control and outside our service. Consequently, we are not responsible for the content or practices of those sites. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While Phillips strives to protect their users’ personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk. Phillips’ policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond Phillips’ control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Phillips can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
