We use the information described above to process your requests and wine club orders; communicate with you about our products, services, offers, events and promotions, and offer you products and services we believe may be of interest to you; contact you if we have not heard from you in a while; allow you to send a message to a friend (by using this functionality, you are telling us that you are entitled to use and provide us with your friend’s name and email address); to participate in sweepstakes, contests or similar promotions (some of these activities may be subject to additional rules, which you should read carefully); analyze trends and enhance our communications strategies with you; and to improve the quality of our online guest services.
