Ardbeg collects the details provided when you place your online order, together with information we learn about you from your membership of The Ardbeg Committee and the website. We also collect information about the transactions you undertake including details of payment cards used. We may collect additional information in connection with your participation in any promotions or competitions offered by us and information you provide when giving us feedback. Mandatory information to be provided is identified as such by an asterisk or other clear indication. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site use which enables us to improve the service we provide. So that we can monitor the popularity of our websites, understand what pages visitors are looking at and how often visitors come to our site and identify the source of new business, we collect data in web access logs and via cookies. This data is entirely anonymous and doesn't identify individual users. This means that there is no reasonable way for us to identify the individual person this data was collected from.
We may transfer data outside the E.E.A. (European Economic Area) in compliance with applicable laws and regulations and all steps will be taken to ensure the protection of data in such an instance.
Any personal data collected by Ardbeg from you for the use of the purposes listed in the Privacy & Cookies Policy is governed by Scottish law, specifically the provisions of the Data Protect Act 1998.
This Privacy & Cookies Policy shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of Scotland and any disputes will be decided only by Scottish Courts. If any provision of this Privacy & Cookies Policy is held by any court of competent authority to be unlawful, invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, this will not affect the validity of the remaining provisions which will continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
We will use your information to provide and personalise our service. We will also use your contact details to communicate with you. We may use your information to send you offers and news about Ardbeg, The Ardbeg Committee and local events in the country in which you live. Please note that there may be instances where it may be necessary for us to communicate with you, in any event, for administrative or operational reasons relating to our service.
Please note that Ardbeg will never pass your personal data to anyone else, except:
We may also use and disclose information in aggregate (so that no individual customers are identified) for marketing and strategic development purposes.
Data is retained for a period appropriate to the purposes for which it was collected and is, by default, destroyed at the end of a one (1) year period following their collection date.
Please note however that data related to subscription of current services (for instance newsletters) will be destroyed 1 month after you have notified us that you want to unsubscribe to such services.
Ardbeg and its provider have made every reasonable effort to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and privacy of personal data, and to prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized third parties.
However and despite our implemented technical and organizational security measures, Ardbeg and its provider do not control each and every risk related to the use of the Internet, and therefore warns the users of the website of the potential risks involved in the functioning and use of the Internet.
