By using this site, you acknowledge that you have read, understood and agreed to be bound by the terms and conditions below, including the Phillips Distilling Company (“Phillips”) Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to these terms and conditions and this privacy policy, you may not use our site. Your continued use of the Phillips site following the posting of changes to these terms and conditions will mean you accept those changes. Phillips has a policy to respect and protect the privacy of its users. This statement of terms and conditions and privacy policy tells you, among other things, how we collect information from you and how we use it. Using the Internet should be a fun experience and we want to help you make it so.

Phillips occasionally collects and stores personal user information in connection with promotions at www.uvvodka.com. Whenever information of that kind is collected, Phillips requests confirmation of the ages of all site visitors before accepting information from them. No information is collected from guests who state they are under the age of 21.
From time to time, Phillips requests personal information such as your name, e-mail address and birth date. For example, we may request personal information when you register to enter a promotion such as a sweepstakes or contest. Whenever Phillips collects and stores such personal user information, information you provide will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent; however, Phillips may share aggregate information about our visitors (for example, what percentages of our visitors are male and female) with advertisers, business partners, sponsors, and other third parties in order to customize the content of our site to deliver a better experience for our visitors.

Whether Phillips collects personal information for complying with your requests or in connection with your participation in a promotion or for purposes of verifying your compliance with Phillips policies and federal, state, and local laws, and/or for editorial and feedback solicitation purposes, we will collect only such information as is necessary for those purposes and nothing more. We will not collect any information from users under 21 that is not necessary for participation in promotions such as sweepstakes or contests or fulfillment of requests for information, prizes or premium items.

Phillips may disclose user information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing (either intentionally or unintentionally) injury to or interference with Phillips’ rights or property, other Phillips users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Phillips may also disclose user information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.


Information provided at the time of registration or submission from a guest who is 21 years of age or over may be used for marketing and promotional purposes by Phillips. To keep you in control of your personal information and the communications directed to you, you may opt out of receiving communications from Phillips about new features or services. If you object to such use for any reason, you may remove your address from our database by replying to an email from Phillips with “REMOVE” as the body copy.


An IP address is a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers — the big computers that “serve up” Web pages — automatically identify your computer by its IP address. Phillips collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our promotional partners, and to audit the use of our site.

When guests request pages from Phillips sites, our servers log the guests’ IP addresses. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers, or others.


What are cookies? Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you’re at our site. We never save passwords or credit card information in cookies.

The use of cookies is an industry standard — you’ll find them at most major Web sites. By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies may help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. Phillips currently does not use cookies to track user information, but the site was designed to allow the use of information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs. While these activities depend on the use of cookies, visitors to any Phillips site always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or indicate when a cookie is being used.


Users should be aware that when they are on the site, they can be directed or linked to other sites, the content and practices of which we have not reviewed and are beyond our control and outside our service. Consequently, we are not responsible or liable for the content or practices of any of those third party sites, or any losses or damages arising from the use of those sites, and we make no warranties of any kind, whether express or implied, regarding the content of those sites. If you decide to access any of the third party sites linked to our site, you do so entirely at your own risk.

These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data, or solicit personal information. Please keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online that information can be collected and used by people you don’t know. While Phillips strives to protect their users’ personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

Phillips’ policy does not extend to anything that is inherent in the operation of the Internet, and therefore beyond Phillips’ control, and is not to be applied in any manner contrary to applicable law or governmental regulation.


The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our guests is of utmost concern to us. We exercise great care in providing secure transmission of your information from your PC to our servers. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Phillips can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online products or services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
