This means, for example, that it is not allowed to use images-photographs or text from this site in other media, for example on other sites and blogs.

We are not necessarily against such use but we do require that you contact us before any such use to request permission.

BKWine’s web sites and online activity

BKWine operates several web sites. You can find links to all sites elsewhere on this page. The sites contain editorial information about wine, food, and travel, as well as information about BKWine’s own activities in the areas of wine, writing, photography, and about the wine tours that BKWine organises.

Privacy and personal data

BKWine may for its own purposes store your email and/or other contact details in paper or electronic form. If you subscribe to our emails we collect the information that is given to us, the email address, as well as any other information that you voluntarily submit (e.g. name). We also collect an IP address. This is the public IP address of the internet service provider via whom the sign-up was made and can not be used to identify you personally.

We may also provide this information to a “third party data processor” for the purpose of sending out emails, such as BKWine’s newsletter mailings and other information mails. (Our mailing service – third party data processor – is currently YMLP, similar to MailChimp, Mad Mimi, ConstantContact, Apsis and others.) We may also provide it to our accounting service, as a “third party data processor”, if you are a customer of ours.

You can always request a copy of the information that we have by contacting us.

If you subscribe to our mailings we will not send you third party marketing mailings and publicity mailings. We only send you our own editorial contents and information about BKWine’s own activities.

BKWine will not share your email with any other third party, nor will we sell it to anyone.

In other words, if you sign up for one of our newsletters or mailings we will use your email just for that purpose.

There is always an unsubscribe link on our mailings. You can always easily unsubscribe from our newsletters / mailings by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email. You can also unsubscribe on the newsletter sign-up/unsubscribe page where there is an unsubscribe option. You can also send us a request by email.


This site uses cookies for the purpose of collecting visitor statistics (e.g. with Google Analytics or StatCounter). This allows us to know, for example, how many visitors we have on the site. The cookies are anonymous and do not collect any personal information and cannot be used to identify individuals. There are also a few cookies set by third parties in order to provide certain functionalities to the site, such as sharing functions and linking to their sites (e.g. LinkedIn).

You are welcome to contact us if you have any questions on these issues.
