Like most web sites, Go Virginia Getaways may collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available; things like the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. This allows us to better better understand how visitors use this web site. In future we may for business reasons release such non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate (e.g., reporting on trends in the usage of this site).
Go Virginia Getaways reserves the option to collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. We may collect this information directly in system logs or though use of third-party data monitoring services (e.g., Google webmaster tools). However, we will only ever disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances as discussed below for disclosure of other personally-identifying information.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
At launch, there are no functions on this site that require users to register on the site; however, this is an e-commerce site featuring products that must be mailed to purchasers. For this reason, we do request users registering provide a correct mailing address where they can receive purchased items. (Asking for this information also upsets most automated bots, so at least at launch we do not need to use intrusive CAPTCHA images and queries.)
Users of this site who wish to participate, comment, and order our products are required to "join" the Go Virginia Getaways community (establishing an account on this system). Members are asked to provide some personally-identifying information. For example, at launch we require new members to select a username, provide an email address, select a password, and provide the mailing address where they would like to receive any products shipped from Go Virginia Getaways. However, at launch this site does not request or store any credit or billing information; for our customers' security we refer purchasers to a secure and trusted external payment processing site to complete purchase transactions.
Go Virginia Getaways does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors always have the option not to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that this may prevent them from purchasing or fully participating in comment and other personalize offerings of this web site.
Go Virginia Getaways and our parent company, En Route Communication, may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to our web sites. While we have no current plans to do so, we reserve the option to display this information in aggregate publicly or provide it to others. However, we will not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Go Virginia Getaways will not disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information except to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf, support services or features of this site, or provide offerings consistent with this website; and (ii) agree not to disclose such information to others. Some of those affiliates may be located outside your region or even home country; by using this web site, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Other than to employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations as described above, Go Virginia Getaways and En Route Communication will disclose personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of this site, our company, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of this site, we may occasionally use contact information to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Virginia wine. In future member location data may make it possible to offer special features or opportunities; in that event we will provide a means to "opt out" on this web site and will honor any legitimate request we receive not to be included in such offerings (whether by "opt out" option on this site, direct e-mail, or by the contact form on this site). We primarily use this site itself to communicate that type of information, so we expect to keep this type of direct contact to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Go Virginia Getaways seeks in all circumstances to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personally-identifying information.
If Go Virginia Getaways or substantially all of its assets are acquired (including the unlikely event that is directed due to bankruptcy or legal action), user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that any acquirer may continue to use your personal information according to the terms set forth in this policy.
Comments and other content submitted to our site is accepted and will be preserved and protected to the maximum extent feasible based on the site owner's unilateral judgement, subject to the Use Policies and Copyright posted on this site.
