Your name, address, phone number, etc. is needed to process payment and ship merchandise to you, and to contact you if we need to inform you of the status of your order. We may use your personal information to let you know about our products and services. For example, we may contact you with information about a wine promotion, but we will never spam you. You can contact us at any time if you no longer wish us to send these promotions or information to you.
