EEA Disclosures

Last Modified: July 19, 2019

These disclosures (the “Disclosures”) supplement our Privacy Policy.

The Disclosures apply only to our processing of Personal Data within the scope of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) from one or more of the European Union Member States plus Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway (together known as the “European Economic Area” or “EEA”).

Data Retention

We retain Personal Data pursuant to our records retention program, for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in the Privacy Policy, unless a longer period is required under applicable law or is needed to resolve disputes or protect our legal rights, in accordance with the principles set forth in Article 5(1) of the GDPR.

The criteria used to determine the period for which Personal Data about you will be stored varies depending on the legal basis under which we process such Personal Data:

Legitimate Interests For a reasonable period of time based on the particular interest, taking into account the fundamental interests and the rights and freedoms of the data subjects.
Contractual Necessity For the duration of the contract plus some additional limited period of time that is necessary to comply with law or that represents the limitation period for legal claims that could arise from the contractual relationship.
Legal Obligation For the duration of time we are legally obligated to keep the information.
Consent For the period of time necessary to fulfill the underlying agreement with you, subject to your right, under certain circumstances, to have certain Personal Data about you erased (see Data Subject Rights below).

We may face any threat of legal claim and in that case, we may need to apply a “legal hold” that retains information beyond our typical retention period. In that case, we will retain the information until the hold is removed, which typically means the claim or threat of claim has been resolved.

Transfers of Information Across Borders

Any information that you provide to us is stored and processed in, and transferred between, any of the countries in which we and our agents, contractors and affiliated organizations have offices, in order to enable us to use that information as set out in this Privacy Notice. This includes countries such as United States, Canada, and Hong Kong.

Not all of these countries have data protection laws equivalent to those in force in the EEA. Except the United Kingdom, which is currently in the EU, the European Commission (in the EU) has yet to make a decision of adequacy in relation to the protection given to Personal Data in any of the other listed countries. In order to ensure the protection of your Personal Data we have put in place European Commission approved Standard Contractual Clauses between each of our entities.

Data Subject Rights

Individuals from the EEA whose Personal Data we process subject to the GDPR have certain rights as required by law, including the right of access, erasure and data portability, as well as the right to rectification, to restrict processing, to withdraw consent, and to object to processing as follows.

Contact Us

To assert one of your legal rights described in these Disclosures, or if you have questions about these Disclosures or our data handling practices, please email personaldata@duckhorn.com or write to: Duckhorn Wine Company, Attn: Legal Department, 1201 Dowdell Lane, St. Helena, CA 94574
