The Policy explains how Swig collects and uses information. We hope that our candor will remove any concerns you may have and will make using Swig a rewarding experience.
Although we aim to keep you up-to-date on all changes made to the Website, this Policy may be amended from time to time without notice to you. It is your responsibility to read the Policy carefully and review any changes that may have been made.
In order to use certain features of the Swig, you will need to register using Facebook. For purposes of this Policy, the terms “personal information” shall mean all information provided during your initial registration on Swig and during your creation of a user profile, including, for example, your real name, e-mail address, postal address and other location information, your age, your gender and certain other demographic information or information that may enable online or offline contact with you. We may obtain this information from Facebook when you register.
When you choose to purchase goods or services by clicking on a third party link provided on the mobile app or website (for example, a link to Amazon.com), Swig is not responsible for that third party may collect or use data. We may be provided with confirmation of your transactions with such third parties and, in some instances, such confirmation may include your personal information. We may use any of the aforementioned information to help our sponsors to effectively target their ads.
When you use Swig, our servers may collect any information you supply. This is accomplished by monitoring your activity on the mobile application and website. In addition, your drink recommendations may change based on actions you take, including, but not limited to, sharing a drink with a friend via Facebook, making recommendations, or using the mobile application in a particular place. All of the information that is generated by your activity on Swig is fed back into your drink recommendations in order to fine-tune your profile so that Swig can recommend more of what you like and less of what you don’t like. Swig also maintains a central database of information collected (which may include your personal information).
Swig does not process any personal information related to your record collection and/or profile in any manner other than as described in this Policy. However, please note that, in addition to the third party access that is identified in this Policy, your drink records may be viewed by all other users of Swig (who may include other organizations or representatives of other organizations who have registered as Swig users) and that they may easily associate this information with your Swig profile.
We keep track of the domains from which people use Swig and may use your zip code, post code, city, country, or other location data to (1) provide you better recommendations; and (2) provide marketing information to third party sponsors.
We collect data regarding the users of Swig, including: (1) The Internet Protocol (IP) address of the user’s device (which may or may not be associated with a particular Internet Service Provider); (2) the referring URL, if any; (3) the browser software identification (i.e. the brand and version of your browser software); and (4) the mobile platform from which you access the Swig mobile application.
We will use the email address provided by you when you register through Facebook to contact you from time to time. We will use your email address to provide you with updates about products and services, or for security purposes. Swig may also use your personal information and non-personal information to help Swig and its partners to deliver targeted drink recommendations, advertisements, promotions and other similar initiatives to you. This includes information that is aggregated or individualized.
We use Facebook’s APIs to enable users to share information about their drink tastes with their friends. Please note that all personal information you display or communicate using such functionality becomes public information and we are not responsible for any information you choose to make public. We may, but have no obligation to, monitor such traffic via electronic software or otherwise in order to check for obscenity, defamation or abusive language, which we reserve the right to remove at any time. Swig cannot be held responsible for any consequences which flow from your decision to communicate or interact with other users in places or under circumstances which we do not control.

Swig aims to protect the security of your information as much as we aim to protect our own information and network. You should never disclose your account password to unauthorized people. We use certain security measures to help keep your personal information safe, but we cannot guarantee that these measures will stop any users try to get around the privacy or security settings on Swig through unforeseen and/or illegal activity.

In the U.S., children and adults under the age of 21 (or whatever the legal age of drinking is in your legal place of residence) are not eligible to use Swig and must not attempt to register with Swig and/or submit any personal information to us. We don’t knowingly collect personal information from any person who is under the age of 13 or allow them to register. If it comes to our attention that we have collected personal data from a person under the age of 13, we will delete this information as quickly as possible. If you have reason to believe that this has occurred, please contact us and we will delete all relevant information.

If you decide that you do not want your personal information to be used in the way described in this Policy, you can send us a notice that you wish to withdraw your consent as set out above by emailing us. Because the Swig community relies on users sharing information, withdrawing your consent will mean that you are not able to receive the full benefits of Swig as a user. Additionally, if you do not provide your consent, or if you withdraw your consent, you should not use Swig.
