Personal Information we collect
The information collected by Batch Winery will depend on the products, services, or information you ask us to provide to you, and the nature of the dealings you have with us. This will include (but is not limited to) information to confirm your identity, date of birth, and contact details such as your physical address, mailing address, email, and contact phone numbers.

Advertising services providers by partners
We advertise in a number of ways, including online through managed social media presences, and on other unaffiliated sites and mobile applications. To understand how our advertising campaigns are performing, and better understand the visitors to our website we work with partners who provide us with advertising services. We collect information via our advertising service providers to help us understand how users interact with our services, serve advertisements on our behalf across the internet, and measure the performance of these advertisements.

If you allow an application to connect to your account on our websites, including if you set up your account on our website using an API with a third-party social media platform, that application will be able to access information that you can see when you are logged into our websites.
