Information Collection and Use
Anthony Nappa Wines is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Anthony Nappa Wines collects information from our customers at several different points on our website. 

Credit Card Information
Anthony Nappa Wines does not store credit card information on our Website, as such a valid credit card is required to complete each order.

No registration is required in order to use this website, although a customer must create an account prior to any purchase. During account creation a customer is required to give their name, email address, and a password. This information is used to allow a customer easier repeat access to our site. Incomplete orders are saved and can later be finalized or cancelled.

We request information from our customers on our order form. Here a customer must provide contact information (like name, phone number and shipping address).  This information is to fill the customer’s orders. If we have trouble processing an order, this contact information is used to get in touch with the customer. Financial information (like credit card number, expiration date) is not asked for or kept on our site as the actual payment processing is handled by PayPal.

Gift Recipients
We collect contact information for gift certificate recipients in order to ensure correct electronic delivery. We do not sell or rent any contact information for gift recipients. Beyond completing electronic delivery of their gift, we do not contact gift recipients in any way.

A cookie is a piece of data stored on the visitor's hard drive containing information specific to that visitor's use of the website. Any information placed in the cookie is accessible only to www.anthonynappawines.com, and will not be sold or shared with anyone else under any circumstances. We use a cookie to store a unique session identifier, and this allows us to maintain your shopping cart from one page request to the next. We are also able to maintain your session information from one visit to the next. If a customer rejects the cookie, they may still browse our site. Unfortunately, the customer experience will be greatly curtailed, as the customer will be unable to log in or make a purchase.

Log Files 
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track customer's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

We use an outside shipping company to ship orders, and a credit card processing company to bill customers for items purchased. Our website is hosted by StartLogic who help with the technical operation of our website and provide additional service as required. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.

We value your privacy very much at Anthony Nappa Wines, and will never release any account information to anyone outside of the necessary core groups that help our business function, like those mentioned above unless our customers give us the authority to do so.

This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Anthony Nappa Wines is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our customers to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

When our order form asks customers to enter personal information (such as phone numbers and addresses), that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry - SSL (Secure Socket Layers), provided by GeoTrust, a leading encryption software company available today. While on a secure page such as our order form, the lock icon will appear within your web browser.

While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we also do everything in our power to protect customer-information offline. All of our customers' information, like the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, a salesperson) are given access to personally identifiable information.

If you have any questions about the security at our website, you can send an email through the Contact Us page.
