Privacy Policy

Privacy:

We use Google Analytics to monitor traffic on our website. This lets us know how many people visit a page, download our catalog etc. It does not provide us with anything personally identifiable about you the visitor. Google Analytics will download a few cookies onto your computer which do not personally identify you or your computer to us but lets Google Analytics know if you are a brand new visitor to CROWNRIDGEBARRELWORKS.COM or a return visitor. The Better Business Bureau link at the bottom of the page also downloads a cookie for their use. When you get into the shopping cart for CROWNRIDGEBARRELWORKS.COM there are several cookies downloaded that allow you to add items to your shopping cart and return to them later etc.

When submitting an inquiry or a custom order online we ask that you include your contact information so that we can get back to you. When the order is received by our office or the inquiry is resolved we delete any stored information.

Security:

When making a purchase or credit card payment online you will be taken to the secure checkout page hosted by PayPal.com at "https://paypal.com/". The "s" in https means secure and refers to the 2048 bit encryption that all of your sensitive information is wrapped in when sent off to the banks. Also check for the small image of a lock to the left or right of the website address. The payment information you submit here is not stored or even ever seen by Crown Ridge Barrel Works. It is all handled off site and never stored by us. We get notification of what you ordered and that you paid for it as well as your contact/shipping information, but never any financial information beyond the card type and last four digits of the card used to make payment.

SECTION 2: SUBMITTING INFORMATION VIA CONTACT/INQUIRY FORMS ON CROWNRIDGEBARRELWORKS.COM

The information submitted will vary depending on the type of request, but in general we require your name and contact information so that we may respond to your request for information or your question. We ask only for the information that we think we need for the type of question you have. We may require more information, for example, for inquiries about exports than we do for a standard inquiry. This information is sent to the relevant member of our staff and stored until we can resolve your question.

We may also store information relating to your browser and operating system version for our own diagnostic use since the feedback form may be used to report site performance and other technical issues.

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

SECTION 9 - THIRD-PARTY SERVICES

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our store’s website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our website’s Terms of Service.
