Summary:

We respect the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and this policy explains how we collect and treat any information you give us.

Why we value your privacy

We value your privacy as much as we do our own, so we’re committed to keeping your personal and business information safe. We’re uncomfortable with the information companies, governments, and other organisations keep on file, so we ask for only the bare minimum from our customers. We’ll never use your personal information for any reason other than why you gave it, and we’ll never give anyone access to it unless we’re forced to by law.

How we collect information

We ask for contact information including your name, email address, and phone number, on our website so that we can reply to your enquiry.

Our website doesn’t use cookies or scripts that were designed to track the websites you visit. However, we do use analytics and native social media ‘like’ or ‘sharing’ buttons which allow you to share your interest in us on social media. We use Google Analytics to improve our website and to understand which pages you like and don’t like. Google Analytics doesn’t give us information about who you are and which pages you visit.

We collect your email address when you sign up for one of our newsletters. This information is stored on the Mailchimp servers.

We ask for your account and contact information when you hire or buy something from us.

Occasionally, we might receive your contact information from one of our partners. If we do, we protect it in exactly the same way as if you give it to us directly.

What information we hold

  • When you contact us by email or through our website, we collect your name, email address, phone number, a social media username, and the company you work for, if you’ve given us that.
  • If you sign up for a newsletter, we only collect your email address.
  • When you buy something from us, we collect your name, email address, phone number, and a delivery address.
  • If you do business with us, we also collect your business name and bank details and keep records of the invoices we send you and the payments you make.
  • All purchases are processed by WorldPay, Paypal and SagePay, our ecommerce platform and we never have access to your credit card information.

Where we store your information

When you contact us by email or through our website, we store your your information in Gmail, our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software. If you sign up for a newsletter, we store your email address in Mailchimp, which is the marketing platform we prefer. When you buy something, your information is stored in WorldPay, Paypal and SagePay , our ecommerce platform. We chose these systems partly for their commitment to security.

What we use your information for

We occasionally use your contact information to send you details of our products and services. When we do, you have the option to unsubscribe from these communications and we won’t send them to you again. We might also email or phone you about our products and services, but if you tell us not to, we won’t get in touch again. We will use your information to send you invoices, statements, or reminders.

Who’s responsible for your information at our company

Terlingham Vineyard is responsible for the security of your information. You can contact us by email at contact@terlinghamvineyard.co.uk or by phone on 01303 892452 if you have any concerns about the information we store.

Who has access to information about you

When we store information in our own systems, only the people who need it have access. Our management team have access to everything you’ve provided, but individual employees have access to only what they need to do their job.

The steps we take to keep your information private

Where we store your information in third-party services, we restrict access only to people who need it. We store passwords in an encrypted password manager and use a different, randomly generated password for each service, and never use the same password twice.

The computers we use are all encrypted and are protected by a passcode or fingerprint access. Our mobile devices are also protected by a fingerprint or facial recognition.

How to complain

We take complaints very seriously. If you’ve any reason to complain about the ways we handle your privacy, please contact us by email at contact@terlinghamvineyard.co.uk or by phone on 01303 892452. If you’re the letter writing type, send your envelope to Terlingham Vineyard & Winery, Terlingham Lane, Folkestone, Kent, CT18 7AE.

Changes to the policy

If we change the contents of this policy, those changes will become effective the moment we publish them on our website.

Also, by using this site: I agree for my personal data to be processed by Terlingham Vineyard. I agree for my personal data, provided via map API calls, to be processed by the API provider, for the purposes of geocoding (converting addresses to coordinates), reverse geocoding and generating directions. Some visual components of WP Google Maps use 3rd party libraries which are loaded over the network. At present the libraries are Google Maps, Open Street Map, jQuery DataTables and FontAwesome. When loading resources over a network, the 3rd party server will receive your IP address and User Agent string amongst other details. Please refer to the Privacy Policy of the respective libraries for details on how they use data and the process to exercise your rights under the GDPR regulations. WP Google Maps uses jQuery DataTables to display sortable, searchable tables, such as that seen in the Advanced Marker Listing and on the Map Edit Page. jQuery DataTables in certain circumstances uses a cookie to save and later recall the “state” of a given table – that is, the search term, sort column and order and current page. This data is help in local storage and retained until this is cleared manually. No libraries used by WP Google Maps transmit this information. Please see here and here for Google’s terms. Please also see Google’s Privacy Policy. We do not send the API provider any personally identifying information, or information that could uniquely identify your device.
