Thank you for visiting the Ridge Vineyards website.
We very much value the relationships we have with our customers and do not share your information with other companies, marketers, mass mailers, etc. People from other firms do see customer information - programmers, people who process our newsletters and such, but only to help us serve our customers better. We don't sell or share customers lists with other businesses.
We collect information from visitors and customers in order to make the web site easier to navigate (it remembers what you fill in certain forms to pre-fill other forms) and of course, we collect information so we can process orders. When you send credit card numbers, it is over a secure connection, and they are encrypted and stored at Ridge according to credit card industry (PCI) standards.
Our basic policy hasn't changed since we went online in 1997. Any changes or updates to this policy will be communicated via a notice on our website.
