Like most website/app operators, Virginia Breweries LLC 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. Virginia Breweries LLC’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Virginia Breweries LLC’s visitors use its Website/App. From time to time, Virginia Breweries LLC may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Website/App.
Virginia Breweries LLC also collects potentially personally-identifying information like User Location to provide additional Website/App features. Virginia Breweries LLC does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Virginia Breweries LLC’s Websites/Apps choose to interact with the Websites/Apps in ways that require the Website/App to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the Website/App gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our VA BrewPass App for an email address. In each case, Virginia Breweries LLC collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the associated Websites/Apps. Virginia Breweries LLC 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 or app-related activities.
Virginia Breweries LLC may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its Websites/Apps. For instance, Virginia Breweries LLC may reveal how many visits a particular page received, or say which pages are most popular. However, Virginia Breweries LLC does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Virginia Breweries LLC’s Websites/Apps, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Virginia Breweries LLC 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, Virginia Breweries LLC discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Virginia Breweries LLC believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Virginia Breweries LLC, third parties, or the public at large.
