Coastal Distillery Limited operates coastaldistillery.co.uk. It is Coastal Distillery’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Coastal Distillery collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Coastal Distillery’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LCoastal Distillery visitors use its website. From time to time, Coastal Distillery may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Coastal Distillery may use a website recording service which may record mouse clicks, mouse movements, page scrolling and any text keyed into website forms (excluding payment card information). Data collected by this service is used to improve our website usability. The information collected is stored and used for aggregated and statistical reporting, and is not shared with anybody else.
Coastal Distillery also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Coastal Distillery does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Coastal Distillery websites choose to interact with Coastal Distillery in ways that require Coastal Distillery to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Coastal Distillery gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter at coastaldistillery.co.uk to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Coastal Distillery – by purchasing products, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Coastal Distillery collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Coastal Distillery. Coastal Distillery does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Coastal Distillery may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, Coastal Distillery may monitor the most popular products on the coastaldistillery.co.uk site. Coastal Distillery may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Coastal Distillery does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
