We collect information from you at various points on the Website. We will not sell or rent this information to others. We will only share this information with our affiliates, marketing partners, and other vendors contracted to do business on our behalf.

We collect and use two types of information on the Website:  personal information you directly provide to us, and information you indirectly provide to us when you use the Website (such as cookies and log files).

Information You Provide to Us

You may choose to volunteer personal information in order for us to provide you with services and/or information requests.  If you choose to complete certain forms, request a brochure or customer support, make a reservation or go on one of our tours, you may be asked to provide certain items of information, such as:  your name, email address, postal address, phone number, credit card and other payment information, government identification information (like passport information when you make a reservation), physical characteristics (such as age and gender) and health data.

As stated above, we do not sell or rent your information to any third parties. We may share your information with our affiliates, marketing partners and other vendors contracted to do business on our behalf. When you request and/or authorize certain services on the Website, we will use and share your personal information as necessary to provide these services to you. We will share your information in accordance with the Privacy Policy in effect at the time your information is collected.

These entities may use cookies, web beacons, device identifiers and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Website, including your IP address, web browser, mobile network information, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked, and conversion information. They may also use these technologies, along with information they collect about your online activity, to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile phone and a laptop.

    • for protection of the rights, property and safety of us, our customers or others, as necessary or appropriate;
    • for responding to governmental authorities, including law enforcement requests, and as required by applicable law, court order, or regulations;

We may, subject to applicable law or your consent when required, share information with:

  • vendors, service providers, and consultants that perform services for us such as market research, promotions management, data analysis, payment processing, customer service, mail/email delivery, auditing, and other services;
  • booking partners, travel agents, tour service providers, and others involved in your booking and accommodations;
  • governmental authorities or other entities as required by law or regulation; and
  • others authorized by you to receive the information.

Please note that your personal information may also be shared outside of DuVine (and its affiliates) in connection with a sale, divestiture, or transfer of our company or any combination of its products, services, assets and/or affiliates.  Your personal information may be among the items sold or otherwise acquired in these types of transactions.  We may also sell, assign or otherwise transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, acquisitions, bankruptcies, dissolutions, reorganizations, liquidations, or similar transactions or proceedings involving all or a portion of the company.

We may use your information for any purpose or share it with any third party if we anonymize the information so that it no longer reasonably identifies you. Anonymization requires altering your information, so re-identification requires use of only non-public sources. Wherever possible, we require third party service provider use of the information to be anonymized or protected in accordance with our information security policies. We limit who we share your information with and the legitimate business purposes for which it can be used.

We may keep the information we collect until we no longer need the information to provide services to you or complete our transaction with you, to enable us to communicate with you about our service, for our research, evaluation of use, or troubleshooting purposes, for our analysis to improve quality of our services, or to satisfy our legal or contractual obligations.

Transfer of Information to the U.S. & Other Countries

DuVine is based in the United States, and we process and store information in the United States and other countries. Therefore, we and our service providers may transfer your information to, or store or access it in, jurisdictions that may not provide equivalent levels of data protection as your home jurisdiction. If you are in the European Economic Area, United Kingdom or Switzerland, we provide adequate protection for the transfer of personal data to countries outside of the EEA through a series of intercompany agreements based on the Standard Contractual Clauses or as otherwise authorized or permitted under EU law.

Safeguarding Your Information

We are committed to keeping your personal information secure. We have implemented commercially appropriate technical, administrative and physical procedures and information security policies to safeguard your information from loss, misuse, or alteration. We limit access to personal information to individuals who have a business need consistent with the reason the information was provided. Wherever possible, we require our third-party service providers to protect your information in accordance with our information security policies.

We use no encryption (data scrambling) on certain portions of the Website, but use encryption on portions where you are transmitting sensitive information as described above. When you are on any website that asks you for confidential or personal information, you should check to see if the information being transmitted is encrypted in order to increase the security of your information. Keep in mind that there is no such thing as perfect security.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also have processes and procedures designed to protect your information offline. Our policy is to grant access to only those employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service). The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in an environment that uses various administrative, physical, and technical security measures.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure.  Although we do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to the Website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.  If you make a purchase through our Website, we may collect contact information (such as name, physical address, email address phone number), in connection with your purchase, but do not process any underlying payment facilitated by the Website.  Payment is processed by our payment partners; currently we use USAePay and North American Bancard (“Payment Partners”). Credit card information that you input to consummate a transaction is encrypted using SSL technology. Only the Payment Partners may be given access to the full credit card number that you provide. We do not have access to your full credit card number, although we may access or store the last four digits of the credit card number for record keeping purposes. Data handled by a Payment Partner is subject to that Payment Partner’s terms and privacy policy.
