Welcome to the romantic vineyards of Wine Country Dates! Here, we pride ourselves on creating a platform where wine lovers can find both the perfect match and the perfect wine. Your privacy is like a fine vintage to us: valued and protected. This policy is our commitment to safeguarding your personal data while you’re on the journey to find love among the vineyards.

2. WHO WE ARE

When we mention “Wine Country Dates”, “we”, “our”, or “us”, we’re talking about the dedicated team behind the most exclusive dating platform for wine enthusiasts. As part of the Match Group family, we’ve rooted our practices in years of experience, ensuring that your journey with us is as smooth as a well-aged Merlot. We understand the unique interests of our community, and that understanding shapes how we handle your information.

3. THE DATA WE COLLECT

Being a platform for wine enthusiasts, the data we collect is tailored to your passion:

  • Account and Profile Information: This includes your wine preferences, favorite vineyards, and any other wine-related tidbits you’d like to share.
  • Your Communications: Messages with fellow wine lovers, your RSVPs to wine tasting events, and feedback about your wine experiences.
  • Device and Location Data: To connect you with nearby wine enthusiasts and suggest local vineyard dates.
  • Social Media and External Integrations: To showcase your wine journeys or import your favorite wine moments.
  • Other data sources: We might also combine data you’ve provided with information from third-party wine experts or event organizers to enhance your experience.

Our main goal is to create an unparalleled experience for wine lovers. Thus, the data we collect is primarily used to:

  • Within the Match Group: To enhance your experience across platforms.
  • For Safety Reasons: If there’s any suspicious activity, we might share information with legal authorities.
  • Third-party Service Providers: Only when it’s necessary for enhancing our service, such as event organizers.
