Use of your personal information
For each Site user, we expressly collect a number of non-personally identifiable information, including but not limited to browser type, version and language, operating system, pages viewed while browsing the site, page access times and referring website address. This collected information is used solely internally for the purpose of gauging visitor traffic, trends and delivering personalised content to you while you are at this Site.
Sharing of your personal information
We may occasionally hire service providers to provide services on our behalf, including but not limited to handling customer support enquiries, processing transactions or updating the Site. Those service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service. We will only disclose personal information to an unrelated third party with your consent.
Apart from such circumstances, we may disclose personal information in special situations where we have reason to believe that doing so is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against anyone damaging, injuring or interfering (intentionally or unintentionally) with our rights or property, other Site users or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.
We may also disclose personal information as required by law.
In the event that we sell or buy businesses or their assets, or engage in transfers, acquisitions, mergers, restructurings, changes of control and other similar transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferable business assets. Thus, your personal information may be subject to such a transfer. In the unlikely event of insolvency, personal information may be transferred to a trustee or debtor in possession and then to a subsequent purchaser.
If you voluntarily provide information in publicly accessible areas of the Site, the information can be viewed and therefore used by others. We advise users not to disclose contact information that they do not wish to have publicly available. We are not responsible for personal information you choose to submit publicly.
You must do what you reasonably can to ensure the security of your personal information. It is your obligation that you protect yourself against unauthorised access to your password and to your computer. Please log out of the Site when you have finished using a shared computer. Be wary of including sensitive information in your emails to us as they are not necessarily secure against interception. We will not ask for passwords in an email and you should assume that if you get such a request, it must be fraudulent.
We have processes in place to ensure the security of your personal information. We have physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to help safeguard and prevent unauthorised access, maintain data security, and correctly use your information. We do not store your credit card information and instead submit credit card information directly to our bank for immediate processing.
However, neither people nor security systems are infallible, including encryption systems. While we use reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Retention of information
We retain information for as long as required, allowed or we believe it useful, but do not undertake retention obligations. We may dispose of information in our discretion without notice, subject to applicable law that specifically requires the handling or retention of information. You must keep your own, separate back-up records.
Our Site uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits Site traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand Site traffic and webpage usage. We also use different software to collect and track spending trends and habits.
Transfer out of Australia
The Site is currently hosted in Australia by Digital Pacific. However, Masterpiece Premium Wines may choose to set up more servers in countries other than Australia in the future and we may transfer all data on the Site (including all personal information) to our hosting service providers and data centres who may be located overseas, as selected by Masterpiece Premium Wines in its sole discretion. You hereby expressly and voluntarily grant your informed consent to such transfers.
Alternatively, you can write to us at: Po Box 1930 Cleveland 4163 Queensland Australia.
