Credit Card Processing and Security
Shopping with Vins du Midi is absolutely safe. You never have to worry about credit-card safety when you are shopping at our site. We guarantee that each purchase you make is protected and safe. If fraudulent charges are ever made, you will not have to pay for them.
We use the latest encryption technology to keep your personal information safe. All your ordering information — including your name, address, and credit card number — is encrypted using a secure server for maximum security. Your credit card and billing information cannot be read as it travels to our ordering system. To ensure that your information is even more secure, once we receive your credit card information, we store it on a server that isn’t accessible from the Internet.
Credit card transactions are handled by a third-party financial institution, which receives the credit card number and other personal identifying information only to verify the credit card numbers and process transactions. If you feel more comfortable doing so, you are welcome to call in your credit card information and complete your purchase by phone. (For details, see the Payment Options section of our Help Center).
How do I change, update, or correct personally identifiable information about myself?
If at any time you would like to change any information in your account, just go to the “My Account” link on the top banner or along the left column of any page. This will take you to the “My Account” page. Here you can change or update your email address, username, password, billing and shipping addresses, and payment options.
How does Vins du Midi protect people under 20 years of age?
Vins du Midi does not knowingly collect any personal information from minors, and we take steps to ensure that minors cannot purchase or receive alcoholic beverages from us. One of these steps is the fact that any of our shipments that contain alcoholic beverages are sent with an “Adult Signature Required” sticker on them, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery.
In Japan, you must be 20 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Vins du Midi. Additionally, we suggest that parents get involved with their children’s access to the Internet and our site to ensure that their child’s privacy is well protected. Selling high-end alcoholic beverages to minors is something that we have absolutely no interest in performing.
By using the Vins du Midi site, you consent to the collection and use of your information by Vins du Midi as described in this policy. Vins du Midi fully cooperates with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to release information about members who we believe are in violation of our content guidelines.
We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we reasonably believe to be unlawful. Vins du Midi wants you to be aware that when you click on links and/or ad banners that take you to third-party web sites, you will be subject to the third parties’ privacy policies. While we support the protection of privacy on the Internet, Vins du Midi cannot be responsible for the actions of third parties. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement whenever interacting with any web site. Vins du Midi may update this policy from time to time; please check this page periodically for changes.
