We believe you should always know what data we collect from you and how we use it, and that you should have meaningful control over both. We want to empower you to make the best decisions about the information that you share with us.
You should read this policy in full, but here are a few key things we hope you take away from it:
Grape Society 52 is a public website and our Blogs are immediately viewable and searchable by anyone around the world. Unfortunately through our site we do not give you non-public ways to communicate. You do, however, have the ability as a registered member of Grape Society 52 to utilize a pseudonym if you prefer not to use your name.
When you use Grape Society 52, even if you’re just looking at Blogs, we receive some personal information from you like the type of device you’re using and your IP address. You can choose to share additional information with us like your email address, phone number, address book contacts, and a public profile. We use this information for things like keeping your account secure and showing you more relevant Blogs, people to follow, events, and other material pertinent to your experience on our site.
We give you control through your settings to limit certain data we collect from you and how we use it, and to control things like account security, marketing preferences, apps that can access your account, and address book contacts you’ve uploaded to Grape Society 52.
In addition to the information you share with us, we use our Blogs, content you’ve read, and other information to determine what topics you’re interested in, your age, the languages you speak, and other signals to show you more relevant content.
If you have questions about this policy, how we collect or process your personal data, or anything else related to our privacy practices, we want to hear from you. You can contact us at any time.
