Privacy Policy

This privacy policy governs your use of the mobile software application Corkscrew (“the Application”), published by WhatWine Limited. The Application helps consumers to choose the right wine to pair with their food when dining out.

Which information does the Application obtain and how is it used?

User Provided Information

The Application does not currently require you to provide any personal information directly. You can choose to enter ratings and tasting notes for wines that you have tried. These ratings and notes are made available to other users of the Application.

To access certain features such as rating a wine or viewing your wine history, you have to sign in via Facebook. We store your name and photo thumbnail in order to display them with your wine ratings and notes. This information is only visible to other users when they view a wine that you have rated or reviewed.

If we need to contact you in the future for some reason, the Application may ask for your email address. We will only use this address to contact you for the appropriate reason.

Automatically Collected Information

The Application records anonymous information about how you are using it so we can improve the Application in the future. For each action you take in the Application (e.g. searching for a dish, viewing a wine) we also record the type of mobile device you are using, as well as your mobile operating system, country, region and language.

Does the Application collect precise real time location information of the device?

The Application uses your precise location in order to show you a list of restaurants around you.

Do third parties see and/or have access to information obtained by the Application?

Only anonymized data is periodically transmitted to external services to help us improve the Application and our service. We will share your information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement.

We may disclose User Provided and Automatically Collected Information:

  • as required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process;
  • when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request;
  • with our trusted services providers who work on our behalf, do not have an independent use of the information we disclose to them, and have agreed to adhere to the rules set forth in this privacy statement.

If WhatWine Limited is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of this information, as well as any choices you may have regarding this information.
