7. How does The Ojai Vineyard protect and use customer information?
We are committed to protecting the security and integrity of our customer information, and we use procedures and technology designed for this purpose. For example:

We believe your data must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. On our e-commerce pages, we use procedural and technical safeguards to protect your personal information against loss or theft as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect your privacy, including encryption, firewalls and Secured Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. SSL technology, an industry standard, is designed to prevent someone other than the operators of our website and third party credit card processor from capturing and viewing your personal information. While The Ojai Vineyard employs many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorized access, perfect security does not exist on the Internet and The Ojai Vineyard does not ensure or guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us or the accuracy of any information displayed on our website.
