- Privacy and Data Protection; Security
DRINKS may retain, use, and disclose Personal Information to (a) fulfill its obligations under this Agreement and provide the Services; (b) to provide customer support; (c) for internal business purposes to maintain, evaluate, develop and improve the Services; and (d) to comply with Applicable Law. For purposes of this Agreement, “Personal Information” means information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. Personal Information does not include any of the following: (a) information that is lawfully made available from federal, state, or local government records; (b) information that relates to a group or category of consumers, from which individual consumer identities have been removed, that is not linked or reasonably linkable to any consumer or household, including via a device (“Aggregate Consumer Information”); and (c) information that cannot reasonably identify, relate to, describe, be capable of being associated with, or be linked, directly or indirectly, to a particular consumer, provided that a business that uses such deidentified information: (i) has implemented technical safeguards that prohibit reidentification of the consumer to whom the information may pertain; (ii) has implemented business processes that specifically prohibit reidentification of the information; (iii) has implemented business processes to prevent inadvertent release of deidentified information; and (iv) makes no attempt to reidentify the information (collectively “Deidentified Information”). DRINKS may create, generate, use, combine and sell Aggregate Consumer Information and Deidentified Information, and any data derived therefrom, for any lawful purpose.
DRINKS uses technical, organizational, and physical measures designed to protect the integrity, confidentiality, security, and availability of Personal Information. Among other measures, only authorized personnel of DRINKS and of our TPSPs with a legitimate need to know are provided access to Personal Information, and these employees and TPSPs are required to treat this information as confidential where applicable. DRINKS’ security program is aligned with applicable industry standards and encompasses information security capabilities that protect the Personal Information you provide to us. Our security program is continuously reviewed and strengthened as necessary to ensure responsiveness to, and protection against, emerging threats. DRINKS maintains a highly qualified workforce and uses external experts to support the program. We administer internal education, training, and communication programs to ensure ongoing awareness and vigilance. We maintain and communicate formal documented policies and standards. We monitor and assess the overall operating effectiveness of our program through risk assessments that include identification and remediation of vulnerabilities and threats. We maintain and test our security incident response plan, and undertake various independent reviews in conjunction with PCI DSS, external audits and internal audits. Various additional operational protections, controls, and processes exist, including but not limited to malware protection, intrusion prevention and detection protocols, user access reviews, network segmentation, implementation and maintenance of network and application firewalls, vulnerability scanning, data encryption, penetration testing, and patching. In addition, DRINKS requires its TPSPs to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the Personal Information, to protect the Personal Information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.
DRINKS certifies that it understands the obligations set forth in this Section 9 and shall comply with them for the term of the Agreement and for as long as DRINKS processes the Personal Information you provide in connection with the Services. Despite these precautions and the reasonable security measures we have in place, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will not obtain access to Personal Information. DRINKS will notify you in writing if it makes a determination, in its sole discretion, that it no longer able to meet its obligations under this Agreement or under any Applicable Law. You may take reasonable and appropriate steps to help ensure that TPSPs use Personal Information you provide to us in a manner that is consistent with your obligations under Applicable Law, and you may take reasonable and appropriate steps to stop and remediate the unauthorized use of Personal Information upon notice to DRINKS.
- Confidential Information
During the term of this Agreement, each Party (the “Disclosing Party”) may provide the other Party (the “Receiving Party”) with certain information regarding the Disclosing Party’s business, technology, products, or services, or other confidential or proprietary information (collectively, “Confidential Information”) in whatever form (written, oral or visual) that is furnished or made available to the Receiving Party by or on behalf of the Disclosing Party that (a) if in tangible form, the Disclosing Party has labeled in writing as proprietary or confidential, (b) if in oral or visual form, the Disclosing Party has identified as proprietary or confidential at the time of disclosure, or (c) is of a character that is commonly and reasonably regarded as confidential or proprietary. For the avoidance of doubt, the Services, all DRINKS documentation, digital or otherwise, pertaining to the use, set-up or configuration of the App or the Services, and all enhancements and improvements thereto, will be considered the Confidential Information of DRINKS.
The Receiving Party agrees that it will not use or disclose to any third party any Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, except for exercising its rights and performing its obligations under this Agreement. The Receiving Party will limit access to the Confidential Information to its employees and contractors who have a need to know, who are subject to confidentiality obligations no less restrictive than those set forth herein, and who have been informed of the confidential nature of such information. In addition, the Receiving Party will protect the Disclosing Party’s Confidential Information from unauthorized use, access, or disclosure in the same manner that it protects its own proprietary information of a similar nature, but in no event with less than reasonable care. At the Disclosing Party’s request or upon termination of this Agreement, the Receiving Party will return to the Disclosing Party or destroy (or permanently erase in the case of electronic files) all copies of the Confidential Information that the Receiving Party does not have a continuing right to use under this Agreement, and the Receiving Party shall, upon request, provide the Disclosing Party written notice certifying compliance with this sentence, unless prohibited by Applicable Law.
The confidentiality obligations set forth in this Section 10 will not apply to any information that: (a) is or becomes generally available to the public through no fault of the Receiving Party; (b) is lawfully provided to the Receiving Party by a third party free of any confidentiality duties or obligations; (c) the Receiving Party can prove, by clear and convincing evidence, was already known to the Receiving Party without restriction at the time of disclosure; or (d) the Receiving Party can prove, by clear and convincing evidence, was independently developed by employees or contractors of the Receiving Party who had no access to the Confidential Information. In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose Confidential Information to the extent that such disclosure is necessary for the Receiving Party to enforce its rights under this Agreement or is required by Applicable Law or by the order of a court or similar judicial or administrative body, provided that the Receiving Party promptly (to the extent legally permitted) notifies the Disclosing Party in writing of such required disclosure and reasonably cooperates with the Disclosing Party if the Disclosing Party seeks an appropriate protective order. Any breach or threatened or attempted breach of this Section 10 may result in immediate, irreparable harm for which monetary damages would be an inadequate remedy. If a court of competent jurisdiction finds that the Receiving Party has breached (or attempted or threatened to breach) any of the obligations set forth in this Section 10, the Receiving Party agrees that, without any additional findings of irreparable injury or other conditions to injunctive relief, it will not oppose the entry of an appropriate order compelling its performance and restraining it from any further breaches (or attempted or threatened breaches).
We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to update or change any portion of the App or Services at any time. We will provide you with reasonable advance notice of changes to the App or Services that materially adversely affect your use of the Services or your rights under this Agreement by sending an email to the primary contact email address you provide in your Account, by providing notice through the App administrative console, or by similar means. In any event, DRINKS may make changes that materially adversely affect your use of the App, the Services or your rights under this Agreement at any time and with immediate effect for legal, regulatory, fraud prevention, or security reasons. Unless we indicate otherwise in our notice (if applicable), any changes to this Agreement will be effective immediately upon posting such updated terms at this location, and your continued access to or use of the App or the Services thereafter constitutes your acceptance of the changes and consent to be bound by the Agreement as amended. If you do not agree to the amended Agreement, you must stop accessing and using the App and the Services.
