Who we are

Our website address is: https://alcoholmastery.com.

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Alcohol Mastery we have a few fundamental principles:
We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our product, or protect our rights. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services. In our product, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals: (Note, this privacy policy is available under a Creative Commons Sharealike license, and was originally created by Automattic.com)
If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.
Alcohol Mastery (“Alcohol Mastery”) operates AlcoholMastery.com. It is Alcohol Mastery’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select "Remember Me", your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Aggregated Statistics

Alcohol Mastery may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. Alcohol Mastery may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Alcohol Mastery does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

How we protect your data

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Alcohol Mastery discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Alcohol Mastery’s behalf or to provide services available at Alcohol Mastery’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Alcohol Mastery’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Alcohol Mastery will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Alcohol Mastery discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Alcohol Mastery believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Spacious, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Alcohol Mastery website and have supplied your email address, Alcohol Mastery may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Alcohol Mastery and our product. We primarily use our product blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Alcohol Mastery takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Business Transfers

If Alcohol Mastery, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Alcohol Mastery goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Alcohol Mastery may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on our website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Alcohol Mastery and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Alcohol Mastery may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Alcohol Mastery’s sole discretion. Alcohol Mastery encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
