In some circumstances, you will not have the option to opt-out, such as when we are satisfying the obligations of a contract with you, administering a transaction requested by you, or as required by law.

We have put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. We have no control over the privacy of any communications while in transit to us. We recommend that you not include confidential, proprietary or sensitive information in such communications.
In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personal information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development. If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail.

If you would like to unsubscribe from Nolet communications or from all communications about Nolet brands, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
11. Portfolio permissions
If you have given permission to receive communications about Nolet brands generally (for example, by opting to receive news and special offers by email about Nolet's other great alcohol brands) you may from time to time receive communications about brands to which you have not opted-in specifically. Information about many of Nolet's brands can be found at www.noletspirits.com.
We may occasionally send you communications about brands not featured on www.noletspirits.com (e.g. new brands). We recommend that you refer to www.noletspirits.com from time to time as the list of brands featured will be updated periodically.
Providing general permission for us to communicate with you about our brands does not mean that you will receive communications about all Nolet's brands. We will only communicate with you about those brands that we think may be of particular interest to you. Any such communications will provide you with an opportunity to unsubscribe from the brand in question and/or from all communications about Nolet brands.
If you have any privacy-related questions, concerns or complaints, please contact: email@example.com.
