We will only use your data to improve our website’s look and feel, the way you interact with the website (for example making it easier to find the products you are looking for through adjusting our search facilities according to how we analyse members using our website) e, to present you with relevant offers, products, services and news, to ask for your opinions on our products and services, and for use in our own internal analytics so that we can evolve our offerings further.

And if we no longer need your information, we’ll delete it.
Protecting your privacy
We care about our customers, visitors and newsletter subscribers - so the privacy of everyone we interact with, whether you’re a member, just browsing or receiving our newsletters, is hugely important to us. If you have any questions about how we process, use, store and protect your data, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email using the following address: [email protected]
How we use your information
If you subscribe to Craft Gin Club and/or place an order through our website or sign up to marketing information or respond to a contest, competition, survey or other promotional feature, we will collect personal information that you voluntarily provide to us. This information may include your contact details including name, delivery address, email, telephone number, payment card details (processed through a third party payment gateway provider) and, where you provide it, some categories of other personal information. We do not collect any personal information about you unless it is voluntarily provided by you or collected by tracking technologies (aka cookies) which you may voluntarily choose to opt into when you visit our site. We use your information in several different ways, and how we use it depends on the information. We’ve laid this out below for you.
We may have obtained your data through a third party, for example, when you enter a competition with one of our partners. We will always give you the option to opt out of the marketing communications that you will have consented to in order for your personal data to be shared with us.
1 Your name and contact details
1.1 Most importantly, we use these to deliver your box to you. We also send you service messages by email, so you know when your box has been dispatched.
1.2 We use this to keep you up to date with our latest news and information about distillers and all things gin via post or email. We’ll only ever send these kinds of communications if you give us permission, and you can withdraw your permission at any time.
1.3 We want to keep you (and ourselves) safe from fraud, so we may use your name and contact details to make sure we’re doing everything we can to prevent any fraudulent activity.
1.4 To provide you with the best service. We want you to enjoy every box you receive and every post you read on our blog. To do that, we need to be able to find out exactly what you like, and occasionally we may invite you to complete a questionnaire or submit a review of the products and services you have received from us These submissions may be used on our website, social media and marketing channels and shared with our wider family of distilleries and suppliers. We will always take care not to share any personal data you may have shared with us as part of these submissions and will ask your permission if we do wish to share any such submissions containing personal data first.
1.5 Showing you Craft Gin Club adverts when you browse the internet (for example on social media sites and internet search providers). This is to make sure you are kept in the loop if you are a member, or to always know what our best deals are if you’ve yet to join us.
1.6 As part of a joint competition or promotion with an external company, we may share your name and contact details with that third party organisation. We’ll always be clear when you enter a competition or sign up for a joint promotion who that external company is, what data is to be shared and how you can contact them to manage your data held by them.
