If you use our Sites, WineDirect may collect non-personally identifiable information about your use of the Sites (such as IP addresses, domains, browser type and version, and operating system) ("Use Data").
We may utilize third party companies in an effort to deliver you tailored content and advertising to that matches your interests when you visit our website as well as other websites.

Like most standard website servers, our Sites use log files. This includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movement and gather demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable sites.
Clear GIFs (WineDirect Beacons/WineDirect Bugs)
WineDirect employs a software technology called clear GIFs (a.k.a. WineDirect Beacons/WineDirect Bugs), which help us to better manage content on our Sites by informing us what content is effective. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of users. The main difference between the two is that clear GIFs are invisible on the page and are much smaller, about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. In addition, we may use clear GIFs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by the recipients.
