At Balletto Vineyards, we recognize and respect your privacy. The information you provide us is used to let you know about our wines, events we hold or participate in, other winery news you might find interesting, and to fulfill your wine orders.
We understand the sensitivity of giving out personal information, and we do not share this information with any third party marketing or sales organizations of any kind, except in the performance of services on behalf of Balletto Vineyards, and with their authorized use limited to this purpose.
When you join our mailing list, we will send you an e-mail confirming you have been added to our list. If at any time you wish to be removed from our mailing list, simply follow the “unsubscribe” instructions at the bottom of a Balletto Vineyards email you have received and you will be removed as quickly as possible.
If you supply us with your telephone number, you may receive follow-up telephone contact from us regarding orders placed online or Wine Club orders.
If you supply us with credit card and other payment information as part of your transaction, we will only share specific information (for example, your name and credit card number) with banks and other third parties in the financial system as necessary to process your transaction and maintain your account, and protect against fraud or other misconduct. For example, we may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your credit or debit card information and address match the information that you provided to us.
In addition to the above, we use the information we collect to:
• Provide our products and services to you;
• Perform auditing, research and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our products and services; and
• Ensure the technical functioning of our network and order processing system.
We take appropriate security measures to protect against the unauthorized access or use, alteration or loss of data, including without limitation, information that we have collected from you on our site. The security of your account also depends on keeping your account password confidential, and you should not share your account name or password with anyone. If you do share your account information with a third party, they will have access to your account and your personal information.
Please note that this Privacy and Security Policy may change from time to time. We will not reduce your rights under this Privacy and Security Policy without your explicit consent, and we expect most such changes will be minor. Regardless, we will post any Privacy and Security Policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of Privacy and Security Policy changes).
Our Site also uses “cookie” technology to make your visits more convenient. These “cookies” are set so we may better customize your visit experience in the future.

We may use your email address to contact you to respond to your inquiries or to provide information on products or services to you. To help us determine whether you have received an email from us, and to help us make emails more useful and interesting, we may receive a confirmation that you have opened an email from us.

NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA CONSUMERS:
CALIFORNIA TRANSPARENCY IN SUPPLY CHAINS ACT
On January 1, 2012, the Transparency in Supply Chains Act came into effect which requires certain retailers and manufacturers doing business in California to publicly disclose their efforts, if any, to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains.
We work to ensure that our employees and all members of our supply chain are treated with dignity and respect. We do not use any forced labor in our operations and we expect the same of our business partners and suppliers. All of our employees are charged with identifying and working with reputable suppliers that are committed to complying with all federal, state, and foreign laws regarding labor practices.
When we source from suppliers, we typically do so from suppliers located in the United States, and we typically do not engage suppliers from countries with an increased risk of human trafficking and slavery. We monitor supplier behavior and compliance to ensure that our suppliers meet our high standards. We encourage our suppliers doing business in countries with increased risk to enroll with third party audit organizations like Sedex, the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange. It is our policy to cease doing business with any supplier who participates in human trafficking or forced labor practices. If we discover a concern with one of our suppliers, we may require appropriate corrective action or terminate the relationship.
We have and are continuing to educate our employees who are involved in the procurement of goods and services about the Transparency in Supply Chains Act and the steps that should be taken to identify, cure, and guard against any use of forced labor in our supply chains.
Proposition 65 (Prop 65) is a state ballot initiative intended to protect California citizens and the state’s drinking water sources from chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm, and to inform citizens about exposures to such chemicals. For more information about Prop 65 and the list of chemicals requiring disclosure, please visit http://www.oehha.ca.gov/prop65.html. Prop 65 entitles California consumers to warnings for the following products:
Alcoholic Beverages, Including, Without Limitation, Beer, Malt, Beverages, Wine, and Distilled Spirits
WARNING: Drinking Distilled Spirits, Beer, Coolers, Wine and Other Alcoholic Beverages May Increase Cancer Risk, and, During Pregnancy, Can Cause Birth Defects.

Jar lids and bottle caps may also contain BPA. You can be exposed to BPA when you consume foods or beverages packaged in these containers. For more information, go to: www.P65Warnings.ca.gov/BPA.
