We may also need to contact you by regular mail, e-mail or phone if we have any questions regarding your order.
Notice about sharing information. If you share information about yourself in an open format, like on a Third Party Site or in the user-generated content portions of our Sites, DrinkRoot considers that information to be public information and not personal information. Use caution when posting your own content. Individuals under the age of 18 should be especially careful not to provide any personal information when participating in any area of the Sites where user-generated content might be available to the public. Please see our Terms of Service for the standards of behavior that must be followed when using these portions of the Sites and the Third Party Sites.
how we use your personal information 
From time to time, we will use the information you provide to us to send you e-mail or regular mail regarding products, services, contests and promotions that we think may be of interest to you. We may also use information you provide to us to personalize your shopping experience by using your product interests and purchase information to recommend other products, services or promotions that we believe may interest you, including those of other companies. We may also notify you of functionality changes to the Sites. Information obtained through our Sites may be intermingled with and used in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than our Sites, including both offline and online sources.
DrinkRoot may share your personal information with our marketing or advertising partners and with companies that perform services for us, such as fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending and managing postal mail, email and other electronic communications, analyzing customer data, providing marketing assistance, storing of data on external servers, investigating fraudulent activity, conducting customer surveys and providing customer service.
how we share your personal information 
We may use a third-party vendor
Even with this access to personal information necessary to perform these functions, those third parties are not authorized by DrinkRoot to disclose your information for any other purposes. DrinkRoot may disclose personal information if required by law or legal process.
Except for the sharing of personal information as described in this Privacy Policy, DrinkRoot does not otherwise sell, rent or license the personal information of our customers. If we change this policy, we will post a notice in this Privacy Policy and on our home page. However, DrinkRoot may provide your personal information to any other entity that acquires all or a portion of DrinkRoot's organization by merger, reorganization, operation of law, or a sale of some or all of DrinkRoot's assets. Additionally, DrinkRoot may provide your personal information to service providers or contractors to process credit cards on its behalf and to assist DrinkRoot with sending communications and performing other marketing and support functions.
where we store your information 
We store your personal information in the United States. If you live in Canada or another country outside of the United States, you understand and agree that your personal information may be transferred to and processed in the United States, and that we may be required to use or disclose your information to a third party, including a government authority, in connection with a legal action or other proceeding, including without limitation, in response to a court order or a subpoena.
cookies, pixel tags and tracking
DrinkRoot has a number of ways that it can offer better service and improve the shopping experience on our Sites.
Cookies. We collect information about how you use our Sites by setting and accessing cookies on your computer. A cookie is a small piece of information sent by our Sites that is saved on your hard drive by your computer's browser. The cookie holds information our Sites may need to personalize or enhance your experience and to gather statistical data, such as which pages are visited, the internet provider's domain name and the addresses of the sites visited immediately before coming to and immediately after leaving the Sites. The information in the cookie lets DrinkRoot trace "clickstream" activity (i.e., the paths taken by visitors to our Sites as they move from page to page) to enable us to better serve our customers by revealing which portions of our Sites are the most popular. Cookies also help us improve your shopping experience by, among other things, keeping track of your preferences, recognizing you if you have a shopping account, and tracking your shopping basket as you shop. Cookies contain absolutely no personal information so if any of your personal information needs to be accessed during your visit to the Sites, you will have to log in or otherwise authenticate yourself. We may link the anonymous visitor ID from your cookie to a user ID in our database to help us analyze web traffic and statistics. From time to time, other companies may help us with data research and analysis, but they will be prohibited from using that data for any other purpose. You may disable cookies on your browser. Please review your browser's instructions for doing so. Note that certain features of the Sites may not be available if you delete or reject cookies.
Pixel tags. We may use pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs) on our Sites. They can help us analyze what our customers like to do on our Sites and the effectiveness of our features and advertising. They can also help us customize your browsing and shopping experience. We may use information collected through pixel tags or tracked links in combination with your personal information. We may also combine personal information you provide to DrinkRoot with other personal information (such as purchase history and demographic information). If we work with other companies to help us track, collect and analyze this information, they will be prohibited from using this information for any other purpose.
Google analytics. The Sites use Google Analytics (and in the future may use other similar sites or services), a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (Google), to better assist us in understanding how the Sites are used. Google Analytics will place cookies on your computer that will generate information that we select about your use of the Sites, including your computer's IP address. That information will be transmitted to and stored by Google. The information will be used for the purpose of evaluating consumer use of the Sites, compiling reports on Site activity for our use, and providing other services relating to Site activity and usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. Please note that by doing so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Sites. The use of cookies by Google Analytics is covered by Google's privacy policy. From time to time, we may enter into agreements with other third party providers for web analytic and other similar services. If we enter into such an agreement, we may share your information, including personal information, with the provider or such provider may have access to and collect your information on our behalf. Your information, including personal information, may be stored with the provider.
Other advertising partners. DrinkRoot may also work with advertising partners that use cookies, pixel tags and other tracking technologies to serve advertisements on behalf of their retail clients (like DrinkRoot), across the Internet, including to you after you have visited our Sites. These advertising partners engage in remarketing, online behavioral advertising and ad delivery and reporting. With respect to DrinkRoot, these advertising partners may collect anonymous information about your browser as it makes visits to websites across the Internet (including our Sites) and your interaction with our advertising and email communications. This anonymous information may also be used to tailor advertising for you and others elsewhere on the Internet. DrinkRoot will have access to the information collected by these advertising partners and can then use it in combination with personal information provided by you to enhance your experience on our Sites. Because our advertising partners serve ads on many different websites, they are able to compile information over time about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw and/or clicked on the advertisements they display. Our advertising partners may share that information with us and we and/or our advertising partners may use this information to make predictions about your characteristics, interests or preferences and to display targeted advertisements that our advertising partners believe may be of interest to you. Our advertising partners may also associate this information with your subsequent visit, purchase or other activity on participating advertisers' websites in order to determine the effectiveness of the advertisements. For more information about how targeted ads work, visit Managing Your Privacy at the Network Advertising Initiative website.
Opt out. You also have a right to opt-out of personalized targeted ads. Our advertising partners are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), to opt out of targeted ads served by our advertising partners, or any or all Network Advertising Initiative members, click here. Please note that when you opt-out using this method the Network Advertising Initiative will place an opt-out cookie on your computer. If you delete, block, or otherwise restrict cookies, you may need to renew your opt-out choice. Once you have opted out, our advertising partners will no longer use information they have collected to help deliver targeted advertisements.
Your browser and other mechanisms may permit you to send do-not-track signals or other similar signals to express your preferences regarding online tracking. To the extent you employ such browser do-not-track signals or other similar mechanisms, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor such requests received by us to the extent we have the capacity and resources to identify and process your request. Due to the potential for rapid and diverse developments of technology in this area, we cannot guarantee that we can process every type of request that exists or may be developed in the future. As noted above, third parties, such as our advertising partners, may collect data that relates to you. We cannot control third parties' responses to do-not-track signals or other such mechanisms. Third parties' use of data relating to you and responsiveness to do-not-track signals is governed by their respective privacy policies.
security 
Information security. To safeguard against unauthorized access to personal information by third parties, all electronic personal information held by DrinkRoot is maintained on systems that are protected by up-to-date secure network architectures that contain firewalls and intrusion detection devices. The data saved in servers is “backed up” (i.e. the data are recorded on separate media) to avoid the consequences of any inadvertent erasure, destruction or loss otherwise. The servers are stored in facilities with high security, access restricted to unauthorized personnel, fire detection and response systems.
Physical and administrative security. We employ reasonable physical and administrative safeguards to protect your personal information.
Financial information. We offer multiple options for processing credit card payments, including Apple Pay. DrinkRoot goes to great lengths to keep financial information you provide to us private and safe. We use Secure Socket Layers (SSL), the industry standard in transferring information to process your orders. The SSL encrypts, or translates, your order information into a highly indecipherable code, which is processed immediately. All credit card transactions occur in a secure area of our site, to protect you from any loss, misuse or alteration of information collected. When you have finished shopping and begin the checkout process, you will move into the secure area of our site. Once you've entered, the page address (URL) will change from http to https, to let you know you are in a secure area. You acknowledge, however, that no transmission of data over the Internet or mobile phone devices can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, despite our efforts. We also cannot protect financial or personal information that is not under our control. Thus, while we will use every means possible to ensure the security of information you transmit to us, we cannot guarantee that such information will not be intercepted by third parties. The privacy policy for Apple Pay is available at https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203027.
social commerce and third party sites 
We work with third parties, including social network sites like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and Google+, and with application developers who specialize in social commerce so we can connect to your social networks. All of these companies operate Third Party Sites. We provide access to our Sites by third parties and business partners so we can generate interest in our products among members of your social networks and to allow you to share product interests with friends in your network.
The use of any features made available to you on our Sites by a third party may result in information being collected or shared about you by us or by the third party. Information collected or shared through any such third party features is considered public information by us because the Third Party Sites made it publicly available. If you do not want us to be able to access information about you from Third Party Sites, you must instruct Third Party Sites not to share the information. DrinkRoot is not responsible for how these third parties may use information collected from or about you so be sure to review the privacy policies and privacy settings on your social networking sites to make sure you understand the information they are sharing. If you do not want a Third Party Site to share information about you, you must contact that site and determine whether it gives you the opportunity to opt out of sharing such information. However, we do identify any areas on our Sites where third parties share information about you.
We use features on Third Party Sites that allow you to express positive opinions about our products or purchase our products. Those Third Party Sites may collect or register your views about our products (including whether you purchased a product) and make those views available to DrinkRoot and on public portions of the Third Party Sites. If you do not wish any of this to happen, you should not express your views about our products on Third Party Sites, you should not buy our products through Third Party Sites, and you should review your privacy settings on such Third Party Sites. We are not obligated to display your name or other identifying information, account name, profile photo or other information or content on our Sites even if you express an opinion about one of our products or have consented to our use of such information or content. We reserve the right to remove the information of any person for any reason. We may also remove from our Sites, in our sole discretion, any product offering or any photo or product description relating thereto. If you would like us to delete the data we have collected about you that we have received through any social media provider or Third Party Site, please contact us. However, if your information is deleted you may not have access to certain promotions, product information or opportunities as a result.

DrinkRoot will never knowingly request, accept or use personal information from children under 13 years of age. The Sites are not designed for children. If you are under 13 and want to make a purchase, please have a parent place the order for you. If DrinkRoot receives actual knowledge that a shopping account has been opened by someone under 13 years of age or information has been provided by someone under 13, DrinkRoot will eliminate all personal information relating to that individual from our records.
opt-out from mailings 
From time to time, you may receive periodic mailings, telephone calls, e-mails or other communications from us with news or other information on events, products, discounts, special promotions, or other offers from or on behalf of DrinkRoot. If at any time you wish to stop receiving communications from us please send us an email to info@drinkroot.com with the phrase "Privacy Opt-out: DrinkRoot Mailings" in the subject line, or write to us at the address provided below, and we will remove you from our mailing list.
