WSWA's Privacy Policy

Updated September 21, 2021


Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America, Inc. (WSWA) is the national trade association representing the wholesale tier of the wine and spirits industry. Founded in 1943, WSWA represents hundreds of companies—large and small—in all 50 states and the District of Columbia that hold federal permits and state licenses to act as wine and/or spirits distributors and/or brokers. WSWA members represent a part of the thousands of wholesalers operating in the U.S. today.

WSWA is committed to protecting your privacy and to give you a secure online experience. This privacy statement explains WSWA’s data collection and use practices (“Privacy Policy”). By accessing this site or providing us with your information, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. This policy does not override any terms directly established between you and WSWA.


Collecting Personal Information

We collect personally identifiable information, such as first and last names, postal addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers, when voluntarily submitted by our visitors or those who sign up for WSWA-hosted events or WSWA products and services. If you sign up for event, product, or services, we may also collect a credit card number, which is never retained.

When you submit personal information to WSWA through this site or by signing up for an event (e.g., webinars), you understand and agree that the collection, transferring, storage, and processing of your information may be undertaken by trusted vendors and partners of WSWA. Such vendors and partners are bound by contract not to use your personal information for their own purposes or provide it to any third parties.


Use of Personal Information

We may use information we collect about you to fulfill your specific request (e.g., sign you for a particular webinar), provide you access to particular products or services, respond to your questions or comments, create and maintain user accounts, send you (personalized) emails that market other offerings, or share with sponsors for a particular event your contact information if you signed up for that specific event. 

If we believe the release of information about you is necessary to respond to legal process, to investigate or remedy potential violations of our policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of others, we may share your information as permitted or required by any applicable law, rule, or regulation. This includes exchanging information with other entities for fraud protection.

You may unsubscribe from our marketing communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located at the bottom of our e-mails or by sending us an email at requesting to stop all emails from WSWA.


Links to Other Sites

The WSWA website may provide links that can take you to other websites, which may include WSWA’s partner websites. You should review the privacy and other policies at third-party sites you visit, since those sites are not bound by WSWA’s privacy policy, and WSWA has no control over the content of these other sites, nor the usage of information they gather. WSWA is not responsible for the privacy policies and/or practices of third parties.


Statistical Data

Our servers may track IP addresses and referring pages to help with site maintenance and improvements. This data is viewed only as anonymous statistics to show the busiest times of the day or week, pages with errors and how effective our advertising has been. This information is not used for any other purpose. WSWA may use this aggregate, non-identifying statistical data for statistical analysis, marketing, or similar promotional purposes.


Commitment to Data Security

Your personally identifiable information is kept secure. Only authorized employees and agents have access to this information. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access.


Visitors from Outside the U.S.

Visitors to our website from outside the US must be aware that they are sending information to the U.S. where our servers are located. Further, this information may be transferred to other countries depending on the type of information and the way it is stored by us. U.S. or the countries that the data is being sent to may or may not have data protection acts that are as protective or comprehensive as your country, but our privacy policy will continue to govern the usage, storage, and collection of personal data.


Access Prohibited by Minors

We do not knowingly solicit information from or market to any minors. If you are a minor, please do not engage with WSWA or send us any information about yourself. If you become aware of any data we have collected from a minor, please contact us using the contact information provided below.
