There are some matters to which this Privacy Policy does not apply. These are referred to in clause 8 of this Privacy Policy.

2. WHAT KINDS OF PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND HOLD?

  • your login details;
  • what, how and when you buy from us or have expressed an interest in buying from us; and

3. HOW DO WE COLLECT AND HOLD PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Collection of personal information: When we collect personal information about you, we do so by making a record of it. We do this when:

  • you register with us, for example to create an account
  • you communicate with us online;
  • you take part in our promotions, competitions, testimonials, surveys and focus groups;
  • you buy goods from us, whether in person or online; and
  • you deal with us in other ways involving a need for personal information to be provided such as when you contact us in person or by phone.

We may also collect personal information about you by accessing data from other sources and then analysing that data together with the information we already hold about you in order to learn more about your likely preferences and interests.

Batch Brewing Company uses Google Analytics to help us learn about who visits our site and what pages are being looked at.

When you visit our website we may collect information about you using technology which is not apparent to you, for example "cookies".  For information about our use of this technology, click on this link to view our Cookie Statement.

The personal information we collect and hold about you is from your direct dealings with us. 

Holding of personal information: Personal information we hold is generally stored in computer systems. These may be operated by us or by our service providers.  If Batch Brewing Company is holding your personal information, we will take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

The online shop for Batch Brewing Company is hosted on Shopify Inc. They provide us with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your  personal information is stored through Shopify’s data storage, databases and the general Shopify application. They store your data on a secure server behind a firewall.

Payment: If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, then Shopify stores your credit card data. It is encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction. After that is complete, your purchase transaction information is deleted.

All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its service providers.

When we collect, hold and use your personal information, we do so primarily to sell and promote our goods and services to you and to improve on the range of our offerings.

We disclose personal information we collect for purposes which are incidental to the sale and promotion of our goods and services to you. As such, we may disclose your personal information to service providers who assist us in our day-to-day business operations (e.g. an address may be given to a courier to ensure the delivery of goods ordered by you.)

We may collect, hold, use and disclose your personal information for other purposes which are within reasonable expectations or where permitted by law.

When marketing to you, your personal information is only ever used or disclosed for Batch Brewing Company's own purposes. You may opt out of our direct marketing to you. Our direct marketing materials will tell you how to do this.

We may de-identify your personal information. We may do this for use and disclosure of the anonymous data to determine preferences and shopping patterns.

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, remember that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located a different jurisdiction than either you or Batch Brewing Company. So if you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.
