Why do we collect your data?

We collect and process your data solely for the following purpose:

Customer relationship management:

The customer relationship requires the collection and use of your personal data to provide information about our wines.

This processing is based on the legal basis of your consent to receive information about the wines we sell (press articles, news, etc.).

How are your personal data used?

Our company's commercial activity involves the production and sale of wines, from harvesting to marketing, including winemaking, aging, and bottling. Our business does not involve reselling your personal data to telemarketing companies.

With this in mind, your personal data will always be collected for the purpose explained above.

By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive approximately fifteen emails per year with information about our wines and our company (press articles, news, etc.).

How long do we keep your personal data?

When you subscribe to the newsletter on our showcase website, the data we collect is only available on the servers of the service provider we use to manage our e-commerce website. We do not retain any data on our internal servers.

Regarding our online store, the data is retained for the entire lifespan of the website and is deleted a maximum of 3 years after the end of the web service provider contract.

What protection is provided for your personal data?

Regarding our external service provider, they commit, under the GDPR, to maintain the highest level of security on their infrastructure. They have implemented an extremely restrictive access policy (firewalls, IP filtering, etc.). The stored personal data is encrypted, and the encryption key is unique, randomly generated, and stored outside the database.

When you connect to the showcase website, the pages are secure and encrypted. You can verify this by ensuring that the connection address starts with "https" and a padlock icon is visible at the beginning or end of the search bar.

Who are the recipients of your personal data?

Since we do not retain anything internally, personal data can only be accessed by the external service provider.

Right of access: At any time, you can request access to all the information we hold about you.

Right of rectification: At any time, you can request the correction of inaccurate information we hold about you.

Right to object: At any time, either at the time of information collection or subsequently by writing to the data controller, you can object, for legitimate reasons, to being included in a file or a processing operation carried out by "Maison Joseph Drouhin". Without demonstrating legitimate reasons, in the case of commercial solicitation, you can object to the dissemination, transmission, or retention of your data.

Right to restriction of processing: At any time, you can request the suspension of the use of your data while verifications are being carried out (verification of the accuracy of the available data, etc.).

Right to erasure: At any time, you can request not to benefit from the services of our online site and therefore request the closure of your account and the deletion of associated data. Please note that for legal reasons (obligation to retain invoices for a specific period, for example), we may not be able to completely delete all your data.

Right to data portability: At any time, you can request us to transmit, either to yourself or to another organization if technically feasible, your data in a structured format.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: For further information, you can visit the CNIL website at https://www.cnil.fr/fr/comprendre-vos-droits.
