This Privacy Policy of WineNDine LLC, a New York limited liability company (“WineNDine”), was most recently updated on March 1, 2014.

WineNDine knows that you care about how your personal information is collected, used and shared. We take your privacy seriously.

This Privacy Policy sets forth how WineNDine collects, uses and protects personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) shared by users of the WineNDine Application (the “App”) and the services, content, applications or other functionality offered by WineNDine (collectively with the App, the “Service”). By accessing the App or using the Service in any manner you are accepting the terms of this Privacy Policy.


Personal Information. WineNDine collects and stores information you disclose while registering for or using the Service or provide to us in any other way, including if you establish a profile on the App. This may include but is not limited to your name, birthday, gender, email address, telephone number, BlackBerry Messenger pin, location, usernames for third party services (such as Twitter®, Facebook®, Foursquare®, Google+®, Google Chat®, Skype®), preferences for wine, drink, food dishes of all types and varieties, restaurants and other purveyors of food and/or drink, and photos relating thereto, and information pertaining to your use of the Service. You may create a personal profile, interact with other users, perform searches and transmit information through various channels. We collect and store this information and may use the information as you interact with the Service and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy. When users update information, we keep a backup copy of the prior version for a reasonable period of time.

The App allows you to indicate your preferences for wine, drink, food dishes of all types and varieties and restaurants and other purveyors of food and/or drink, and include photos of the foregoing (“Preferences and Photos”). These Preferences and Photos will be shared with other users of the App to provide those users the benefit of your experiences. By uploading Preferences and Photos to the App, you explicitly disclaim any copyright or other intellectual property rights in the Preferences and Photos and acknowledge and agree that the Preferences and Photos are in the public domain and may be copied and reprinted by third parties without any legal consequence.

WineNDine may use your name, email address, and/or phone number to send you notifications regarding the Service, including but not limited to announcements, alerts regarding postings by other users or Service-related notifications. If you do not wish to receive email, phone or other communications from WineNDine, you can indicate this preference in your privacy settings.

Personal Information such as your name and email address may be provided by existing users of the App who wish to invite you to join the WineNDine community by downloading the App. This information will not be visible to third parties and will be used solely for purposes of the invitation unless and until you join WineNDine by downloading the App and becoming a registered user.

Non-Personal Information. Like many Apps, we collect and store certain information from users by using cookies. These cookies confirm that a user is logged in and tell us how and when the App is utilized. This information is aggregated in order to help us understand how our Service is used. Our cookies do not store your Personal Information. We treat cookie-generated data as non-Personal Information except where otherwise required by law. We may also use third party analytics tools such as Google Analytics to obtain non-personal information that is used in the aggregate to help us understand how our Service is used.


WineNDine takes reasonable precautions to protect user information, including locating account information on a secured server behind a firewall. Sensitive information (such as passwords) is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL). However, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. We therefore cannot and do not guarantee that information you provide through the Service will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of information may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored the information. Because email and instant messaging are not recognized as secure communications, we request that you not send sensitive information to us by email or instant messaging services.


Among Users. The Service is designed to help registered users share information, including without limitation, Preferences and Photos, with other registered users, including your “followers.” By default, your user name is available for purposes of searching by other registered users of the Service. All sharing of information is done at your own risk, and individuals may disclose this information to third parties without WineNDine’s consent.

With Third Parties. WineNDine does not rent or sell your Personal Information to anyone without your permission. However, your Preferences and Photos are freely available to users of the App, restaurants and other food and beverage establishments and purveyors, and third party advertisers and advertising agencies. Otherwise, we do not share your Personal Information with third parties unless WineNDine believes such sharing is (1) reasonably necessary to offer the Service, (2) authorized by the user or (3) required by law.

We may provide information to third party service providers such as server hosts, data management companies and search engines (“Agents”) in order to facilitate the operation of the Service. These Agents may be granted temporary access to Personal Information in order to perform these services. WineNDine takes reasonable measures, including contractual protections, to limit the use of Personal Information by Agents to the specific purpose for which it is reasonably necessary.

WineNDine complies with judicial requests for Personal Information, account information, and other information and makes other legally required disclosures, provided that WineNDine does not reveal such information unless and until we believe in good faith that the request therefor meets applicable legal standards. Additionally, we may share account or other information when we believe it is necessary to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Service, or to prevent imminent bodily harm. This may include sharing information with other companies, lawyers, agents or government agencies.

Information that you choose to provide through certain features of the Service may be published on the App, which may be indexed by third party search engines.

Advertisers. Except with respect to your Preferences and Photos, third party advertisers have no access to your Personal Information unless you choose to share it with them. This Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies or other tracking technologies employed by advertisers. Third party advertisers may provide advertisements that appear on the App directly to users. Third party advertisers may also use technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. WineNDine does not have access to or control of the technologies that may be used by the third party advertisers.


In the event the ownership of all or substantially all of WineNDine’s business changes, user Personal Information may be transferred to WineNDine’s new owner(s). In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the promises made in the Privacy Policy in effect immediately prior to the change of control.


The App and information posted thereon may contain links to other websites and applications. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. This Privacy Policy applies solely to WineNDine and does not apply to information provided to any other website or application.


The Service is intended solely for users who are twenty-one (21) years of age or older. Any registration by, use of or access to the Service by anyone under 21 is unauthorized, unlicensed and in violation of the Terms of Service. By using the Service, users represent and warrant that they are age 21 or older.

Individuals under the age of 21 are prohibited from registering on the Service and WineNDine does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 21. If you are under 21, please do not attempt to register for the Service or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 21 may provide any personal information to or on the Service. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from an individual under the age 21, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about an individual under the age of 21, please contact us at


You may delete personal information on your account at any time by following the settings in the App. You may delete your account itself at any time by permanently deleting the App in its entirety from your device. When Personal Information or your account is deleted, it will be prompty removed from the active App. This information will be subsequently deleted from WineNDine’s servers, though this process may take up to five business days to complete. During this period, your information may remain on backup media. Non-personal information may be retained by WineNDine.


WineNDine reserves the right to change its Privacy Policy at any time. Non-material changes and clarifications will take effect immediately, and material changes will take effect within 30 days of their posting on the App. If we make changes, we will post them and will indicate at the top of this page the policy's new effective date. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here or by email. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account.

By using the Service, you are consenting to have your personal data transferred and processed in the United States, subject to the laws of the State of New York without giving any effect to conflicts of law principles.
