      With this document, this website provides general information on the processing of personal data by it. By submitting data to The Good Wine Habit, individuals authorise The Good Wine Habit to process data in accordance with this policy. Should you have any question about this, you are welcome to contact us at info@thegoodwinehabit.com .

      The Good Wine Habit recognizes the importance of ensuring the integrity of any personal data collected through its website and that they are treated correctly and used only for the intended purposes of our services delivery. The personal data users submit will be used to provide users with information and services that have been requested, as well as for marketing, sales and development and follow-up of the services offered on this website.

      We will not share any personal data to third parties, with the exclusion of the ones appointed, if necessary, as Data Processors by the Owner (such as third party technical service providers, mail carriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communications agencies) and the WSET Awards for wine course administration reasons.

    • Note to Data Processing

      “Personal data” refers to all types of information that relate, directly or indirectly, to a living individual (i.e. natural person) who can be identified from that data.
      The information concerned in our policy refers to individual´s details that might be processed by The Good Wine Habit in order for it to carry out its function as an educational supplier. This includes data relating to a living individual who can be identified from that data. It may also include certain categories of sensitive personal data, e.g. information about an individual’s racial or ethnic origin or their physical or mental health or condition which we may be required by The Good Wine Habit to collect in connection with the delivery of WSET qualifications.

      HOW ARE DATA PROCESSED?

      The Good Wine Habit has a legitimate interest in collecting and processing personal data including a candidate’s name(s), date of birth, address and city/country of residence, profession, phone number, email address, invoice data (name, address, postcode, city and country, VAT-number) for the purposes of applying for, examining and awarding WSET qualifications and collecting feedback from candidates. In some cases, additional information (which may include sensitive personal data relating to health) will be collected to support requests for reasonable adjustments and special consideration. Such personal data will be supplemented by the results of examinations and assessments undertaken by the candidate.
      All this data will be collected by The Good Wine Habit at the time of individual´s submission of the form used to book a WSET course through its website. This form is available on our website under the booking section.

      The data collected are stored in our digital archives whose access is restricted to the APP´s administrator. A regular back-up of data is periodically made by the APP.

      We will not share any personal data to third parties, with the exception of the ones aforementioned under the chapter "Methods of processing" and the WSET Awards who will collect a candidate´s personal data from The Good Wine Habit in the context of examination registrations and/or certification claims.
      It will not be used by WSET Awards other than for the administration of the examinations process, conducting assessments and certifying results. Personal data within candidate’s work will be collected and processed by WSET Awards for the purposes of marking and issuing examination results and providing candidates with post-results services. In order to achieve this, some personal information may be transferred to third parties such as examiners outside of the European Economic Area.

      The Good Wine Habit is not responsible for compliance with the integrity policy by external websites outside of The Good Wine Habit to which this website may have links.
