Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Sonoran Estate we have a few fundamental principles:

  1. We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  2. We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  3. We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  4. In our blogging products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Sonoran Estate Inc. (“Sonoran Estate”) operates several websites including SonoranEstate.com, SonoranWinery.com, and SonoranEstateWinery.com. It is Sonoran Estate’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Sonoran Estate collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Sonoran Estate’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Sonoran Estate’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Sonoran Estate may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Sonoran Estate also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. Sonoran Estate only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Sonoran Estate’s websites choose to interact with Sonoran Estate in ways that require Sonoran Estate to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Sonoran Estate gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Sonoran Estate – by purchasing wine from the website – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Sonoran Estate collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Sonoran Estate. Sonoran Estate does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Sonoran Estate may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. Sonoran Estate may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Sonoran Estate does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Sonoran Estate discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Sonoran Estate’s behalf or to provide services available at Sonoran Estate’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Sonoran Estate’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Sonoran Estate will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Sonoran Estate discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Sonoran Estate believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Sonoran Estate, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Sonoran Estate website and have supplied your email address, Sonoran Estate may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Sonoran Estate and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Sonoran Estate takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Shipping Policy

What should I do if no one is available to sign for my shipment, or if the person isn't of legal age?

Many customers choose to have their order sent to their work address so that an adult is present to sign for it. If an order is sent to a home address and an adult is not present, FedEx will try to deliver twice more on consecutive business days. FedEx will furnish their telephone number on the door tags they leave so that the customer can call to arrange pick up of their package at the local FedEx facility if they like. FedEx will hold packages for five days if a customer tells them that they are coming to pick up their package. If the customer does not contact FedEx, or if the package is not picked up within the five day window, FedEx will return the package to us. We will need to charge shipping again for re-shipping packages.

How can I track my order?

The Order Fulfillment email will contain your FedEx tracking number, which you can enter at FedEx.com to track your package. If you have further questions feel free to contact us at 250-494-9323.
