Data collection and storage

Registration for access to pay-to-view content involves providing Winedoctor with details of your name and address prior to payment; this information is forwarded to the credit card payment pages. You will be required to chose a username and password that meets the stipulated requirement of Winedoctor. Details of name, address, username and password are stored in a secure password-protected database on the Winedoctor site. Chris Kissack recommends that you use a unique password for every website you use, Winedoctor included.

Financial information

In order to access pay-to-view content on Winedoctor payment will be required, using debit or credit card. Payment is made through SagePay/Evavon or PayPal, both reputable online payment systems. Data is transferred using secure SSL technology on the card payment website. Chris Kissack does not store information regarding your credit or debit card. Chris Kissack never even sees the long number on your card (only the last four digits). Any repeat subscription payments are made using card data stored securely by SagePay/Elavon or Paypal. For more details on Sagepay/Elavon processes, see their security policy.

Sharing of Data

Data provided by a subscriber in order to register and pay to access content on Winedoctor is not shared with any third party, although data is shared with SagePay/Elavon or Paypal if it is required to process payments. Your name and email address will not be divulged to anybody unless Chris Kissack is legally required to do so. In order to maintain data security Chris Kissack may need to verify your identity before issuing password reminders.

Use of Data

Chris Kissack may use the email addresses provided to contact subscribers and ex-subscribers. Subscribers may opt out of receiving emails in their profile page. Emails sent out will always have an ‘unsubscribe’ option in accordance with current required practices regarding email communications.


The software that controls access to pay-to-view content on Winedoctor places several cookies on the subscriber’s computer. These contain pieces of data as follows:

  • session ID: keeps the subscriber logged in during any one visit to Winedoctor.
  • username: an encrypted file containing the subscriber’s username.
  • password: an encrypted file containing the subscriber’s password.

Without the use of cookies the subscriber will not be able to access the pay-to-view content. Cookies are not used to track your activity, although the software does register details of when a subscriber last logged in, and the IP address(es) used by the subscriber.
