Web Site Visits

For each visitor to our web page, our web server automatically recognizes and collects only your IP address (your distinct identification number when connected to the Internet), but not the e-mail address, unless you volunteer it. Your IP may change every time you reconnect to the Internet, so there is usually little chance to track your specific browsing history through the Cottle Hill website.

Note that when visiting the Cottle Hill website, our server may be able to guess your country of origin based on your specific IP address. Furthermore, when you view our site by linking from another web page, our web server may store the name of that referencing web page. All visitation information collected by our web server is for internal use only and is used to compile anonymous statistical information to analyze site, page, and service usage and consumer purchasing behavior. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible experience on our site.

Cottle Hill Winery does not sell or rent any personally identifiable information to Third Parties.

We may disclose information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is reasonably necessary to: comply with the law, enforce or apply our terms of business, protect our rights and those of our users, or with your consent.


Cottle Hill Winery uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site.
