Something creative is brewing...
The two key things to take from this policy are:
1) If you are just browsing the site, we do not need to gather any personal information from you at all… and nor do we.
2) Where we do need to gather / hold personal information (i.e. specifically if you are buying goods, setting up an account, commenting / reviewing, contacting us, or subscribing to our newsletter), we keep it confidential and will never sell, rent or otherwise trade your information with third parties.
We are the Creative Juices Brewing Company Ltd. found at Woodoaks Farm, Denham Way, Rickmansworth, WD3 9XQ, UK.
Our registered company number is 11261950. Our VAT number is 295518074. Our AWRS number is XNAW00000111620.
Our website address is: http://creativejuicesbrewingcompany.com.
The personal information we potentially gather and hold from our account holders and other customers who have made a purchase on the site, with a view to fulfilling orders, includes:
Comments and reviews
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. The comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely.
When visitors send us comments and queries via the contact forms, we capture and send that information onto the admin team at Creative Juices Brewing Company. It does not go anywhere else, but you consent to this information being held on our email servers (provided by Google).
Credit cards and other financial information
If you make a purchase on the site, you are consenting to your delivery details being used to get your purchased goods out to you. This means your name, address, and phone number will be put on shipping labels, and consequently visible either to internal Creative Juices Brewing Company staff or to our delivery fulfilment partners (e.g. UPS). In the latter case, the third party shipping company will not use your details for marketing purposes.
Obviously, we will also potentially need to contact you in relation to the fulfilment of your order. These are deemed to be essential service communications rather than marketing communications.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you register a user account on our website we store the information you provide in your user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What are cookies?
Yummy. We love cookies. Of the biscuity kind that is.
The digital kind are pretty tasty too though. If you’re not sure what they are and what they do, a cookie is basically a little text file which is saved on your computer when you visit a website. What it means is that when you come back to that same website, it will remember you’ve been there before and adjust your experience accordingly. However, cookies can only identify the computer, rather than the individual user. For example, the very first time you visit our site, we ask you your age to make sure you are look at suitable content. The next time you come back, we don’t ask you again because the cookie remembers that you have already visited and answered that question. They have had some bad press, but actually cookies are harmless when used appropriately… which we do.
Of course, we support your right to disable cookies in your browser if you wish to do so, but please note: if you block cookies on the Creative Juices Brewing Company site, it may stop certain features operating correctly.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt in to saving your name, e-mail address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
You can remove our cookies (and anyone else’s for that matter) at any time by clearing your browser history and cache.
Embedded content from other websites
We track visitors numbers, and other website usage data as you move around the site, through Goggle Analytics. Well over half of the websites in existence use Google Analytics to do the same thing. This is purely so we can try to understand how our site is performing and make it better for our future visitors if we spot something that needs improving. No sensitive personal information is involved here.
If you have an account on this site, you can see the vast majority of the information we hold by logging into the “My Account” section of the website. From here you can update your information at any time.
If you wish to update your information beyond this or wish to request that we erase any data we hold about you, you can do so by sending us an update / deletion request via any of the normal communication channels as detailed on the “Say Hello” page of the website. We will then confirm this with you via email / post and action immediately. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Disclosure in compliance with the law
You have the right to complain with the Information Commissioner’s Office (the ICO); the regulatory body in the UK concerned with the handling of personal data. You can do this online at www.ico.org.uk, by telephone on 0303 123 1113, or by writing to them at Information Commissioner’s Office, Wycliffe House, Water Lane, Wilmslow, SK9 5AF.
