we will not be able to fulfil your order. We will always ensure that we minimise the amount of data we collect and will only ask for data that we need to process your request.
TWE will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information we collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing you notice.
Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your information for other purposes, such as those set out above. You have an absolute right

Where we process personal information for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the information until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a
record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your information indefinitely so that we can respect your request in future.

Where we process personal information for site security and/or fraud management purposes, we retain it for 3 years.

circumstances (in , where we don’t have to process the information to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the information for direct marketing or profiling). However, these rights may be limited, for
example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal information about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping.
To exercise any of these rights, you can get in touch with us using the details set out below.
We take appropriate measures to keep your personal information secure. We have implemented appropriate physical and electronic procedures to protect the personal information we collect. If you have an account with us, you are

If you are an eligible California resident, the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides you with specific rights with respect to our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve months. This
Our Website collects information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, is capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or device ("personal
information"). In particular, TWE's Website has collected the following categories of personal information from its consumers within the last twelve (12) months:
Examples: This category may include: name, postal address, unique personal identifiers, online identifiers, email address, account name, Social Security number, driver’s license number, passport number, or other similar identifiers.
Under the CCPA, “unique identifiers” or “unique personal identifier” means a persistent identifier that can be used to recognize a consumer, a family, or a device that is linked to a consumer or family, over time and across different
services, including, but not limited to, a device identifier; an Internet Protocol address; cookies, beacons, pixel tags, mobile ad identifiers, or similar technology; customer number, unique pseudonym, or user alias; telephone numbers,
or other forms of persistent or probabilistic identifiers that can be used to identify a particular consumer or device.
B. Personal information categories listed in the California Customer Records statute (Cal. Civ. Code § 1798.80(e))
Examples: This category may include: name, signature, Social Security number, physical characteristics, address, telephone number, passport number, driver's license or state identification card number, insurance policy number,
education or employment information, financial account numbers, medical information, or health insurance information.
C. Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law.

K. Inferences drawn from other personal information.
Examples: This category may include: inferences drawn from the above information that may reflect your preferences, characteristics, predispositions, behavior, attitudes, or similar behavioral information.
Please note that some of the categories of personal information described in the CCPA overlap with each other; for instance, your name is both an Identifier and a type of data described in Cal. Civil Code 1798.80(e).
Personal information does not include publicly available information from government records or any deidentified or aggregated consumer information. In addition, the CCPA excludes the following from its scope: health or medical
information covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and the California Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA) or clinical trial data; and personal information covered by certain
sector-specific privacy laws, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) or California Financial Information Privacy Act (FIPA), and the Driver's Privacy Protection Act of 1994.
TWE obtains the categories of personal information listed above directly from you (for example, from forms you complete or products and services you purchase) and/or indirectly from you (for example, from observing your actions
on our Website).
We may use or disclose the personal information we collect for the purposes described in the “How We Use Your Information” Section above.
TWE may disclose your personal information to third parties for a business purpose. When we disclose personal information for a business purpose, we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the recipient to both keep
that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract. The CCPA prohibits third parties who purchase the personal information we hold from reselling it unless you have received explicit
notice and an opportunity to opt-out of further sales.
TWE shares your personal information with the categories of third parties listed in the “Our Disclosure of Your Information” section listed above. Specifically, in the preceding twelve (12) month period, TWE has disclosed the
following categories of personal information for a business purpose: identifiers; California Customer Records personal information categories; protected classification characteristics under California or federal law; commercial
information; internet or other similar network activity; geolocation data; professional or employment-related information (for prospective employees only); non-public education information (for prospective employees only); and
inferences drawn from other personal information.
In the preceding twelve (12) months, TWE has not sold personal information.
While some of the information you provide may be considered “Sensitive Personal Information” under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), TWE does not collect or process Sensitive Personal Information from consumers to infer characteristics.
(a) Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold
You have the right to request that we provide certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past twelve (12) months. Specifically, you have the right to request disclosure of the
categories of personal information and specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you over the last 12 months. Upon the submission of a verifiable consumer request (see Exercising your California Privacy Rights),
we will disclose to you:
We will also provide the specific pieces of personal information we collected about you if you also request access to such information (subject to certain exceptions under applicable law). In addition, if we sold or disclosed your
personal information for a business purpose, we will also identify: (i) the categories of personal information that we sold about you; (ii) the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold, by category or
categories of personal information for each third party to whom your personal information was sold; and (iii) the categories of personal information that we disclosed about you for a business purpose.
(b) Right to Request Deletion of Personal Information
If you are a California resident, you also have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable
consumer request, we will conduct a reasonable search of our records in order to locate any personal information we have collected about you that is eligible for deletion, and delete such personal information. To the extent we have
shared any personal information collected about you with service providers that is eligible for deletion, we will direct those service providers to delete that personal information as well. For the sake of clarity, however, TWE may not
be able to comply entirely with your request to delete all of your personal information as set forth under the CCPA. For example, if you placed an order with us, the CCPA allows us to keep records related to these types of transactions
in order to complete a transaction for which your personal information was collected. Specifically, we are not required to delete any personal information we have collected about you that is necessary for us and our service provider(s)
Following a deletion request, any personal information about you that was not deleted from our systems will only be used for the purposes provided for by the applicable exceptions. Thus, all personal information about you that is
not subject to a deletion exception will either be (1) permanently deleted on our existing systems (with the exception of archived or back-up systems maintained for emergency disaster recovery and business continuity purposes); (2) de-identified;
or (3) aggregated so as to not be personal to you.
(c) Right to Correct Inaccurate Personal Information
If you are a California resident, you also have the right to request that we correct inaccurate personal information we hold about you, subject to certain exceptions.
(d) Right to Non-Discrimination for the Exercise of a Consumer’s Privacy Rights
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your privacy rights. Unless permitted by applicable law, we will not:
However, we may offer you certain financial incentives permitted by the CCPA that can result in different prices, rates, or quality levels. Any CCPA-permitted financial incentive we offer will reasonably relate to your personal
information's value and contain written terms that describe the program's material aspects. Participation in a financial incentive program requires your prior opt-in consent, which you may revoke at any time.
(e) Exercising Your California Privacy Rights
To exercise your access and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:
Only you, or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. However, you may make a verifiable consumer
request on behalf of your minor child. You can designate an authorized agent to submit a verifiable consumer request on your behalf by having the agent submit a request through the online request portal. Additionally, you may only make
a verifiable consumer request for access twice within a 12-month period.
Your verifiable consumer request must: (i) provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative; and (ii) describe your
request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the
request and confirm the personal information relates to you. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor's identity or authority to make the request. Making a verifiable
consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.
(f) Response Timing and Format
We will make our best effort to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. Within ten (10) days
of receiving the request, we will confirm receipt and provide information about its verification and processing of the request. TWE will maintain records of consumer requests made pursuant to the CCPA as well as our response to said
requests for a period of at least twenty-four (24) months.
If you have an account with us, we will deliver our written response to that account. If you do not have an account with us, we will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option. Any disclosures we provide
will only cover the 12-month period preceding the receipt of your request. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to
provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that
decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.
California's "Shine the Light" law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits users of our App that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please provide sufficient information for us to determine if this applies to you, attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. You may make this request in writing or via our privacy portal.
TWE does not knowingly collect, sell or share any personal information from children under the age of 16. If TWE learns that a child under the age of 16 has submitted personal information without parental consent, we will take reasonable measures to delete the information as soon as possible and to not use such information for any purpose, except where required or allowed by law. If you believe a child under the age of 16 has provided us with personal information, please contact us as described in Your Rights & Choices, above.
If another US State privacy law, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or similar laws apply to our collection and use of your personal information, you may have the following rights, subject to any applicable exemptions or limitations:

Please understand that after you withdraw your consent or authorization, we may not be able to continue to provide part or all services related to such consent or authorization and will no longer process your corresponding personal information. However, your decision to withdraw your consent or authorization will not affect the processing of personal information already carried out based on your previous consent or authorization.
(e) Exercising Your PRC Rights Related to Personal Information Protection

For security purposes, we may require you to provide a written request or otherwise prove your identity. We will respond to your request within 15 working days after we have received your feedback and verified your identity.
In principle, we do not charge any fees for your reasonable requests. However, we will charge certain fees, depending on the circumstances, for repetitive requests that exceed reasonable limits. We may refuse requests that are unwarrantedly repetitive, require excessive technical measures (for example, require the development of new systems or fundamental changes to existing practices), pose risks to the legitimate rights and interests of others, or are highly impractical (for example, involve the backup of information stored on tapes).
We may collect your sensitive personal information, and we will obtain your separate consent before collecting your sensitive personal information.
(a) Necessity of Processing Sensitive Personal Information
The sensitive personal information we may collect includes: your credit card number, payment account information, ID Number. In product sales and other activities, such sensitive personal information will be used for identity verification, transaction confirmation, payment and settlement, delivery, order enquiry, customer service consultation and after-sales service. To protect your transaction security, we will also use it to determine whether there is any abnormality in your transaction.
(b) Impact on Your Rights and Interests
If your sensitive personal information is disclosed or illegally used, it may result in damage to your personal dignity or damage to your personal or property safety.
Please be aware that we have taken strict measures to protect your sensitive personal information from disclosure or illegal use.
In case of security incidents such as personal information disclosure, we will initiate the emergency plan in accordance with the law, and inform you of the relevant situation, impact and measures to be taken by pushing notices, announcements or otherwise.
TWE does not collect any data or information concerning persons who are under the age of 18, which is the threshold for legally alcohol drinking and/or purchasing in the PRC. We will try to delete the relevant information as soon as we are expressly aware that the user is under the age of 18.
Please do not provide us with your personal information if you are under the age of 18. Please consciously comply with this integrity obligation so that we can better protect your personal information.
Where we process registration information, we retain this for as long as we consider that you are an active user of our sites and for 2 years after this.
Where we process personal information for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the information until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to process your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your information indefinitely so that we can respect your request in future.
Where we process personal information in connection with performing a contract (such as when you purchase wine from us) or for a competition, we keep the information for 3 years from your last interaction with us.
