Privacy Policy

  1. Introduction

    1. We are aware that privacy of your personal information, and the security of your transactions with us are of very high importance to you. Brewers Chronicle has therefore implemented data protection policies with respect to your privacy and security. Our privacy policy has been based upon the Internet Industry of Australia's draft Privacy Code of Practice, an internationally recognised privacy protection standard.
    2. As part of our strong commitment to our customers privacy we are happy to answer questions in relation to our privacy policy, customers can Email for additional information.
    3. We may make changes or additions to this policy on occasion. Should we do so, we will update the policy on our web site. It is a requirement that all our customers agree to abide by our Privacy Policy as part of the terms and conditions of an account.
    4. We do not assume responsibility for the privacy and security practices of any other web sites which you may be able to access through our site.
  2. Customer and Brewing/Fermentation Information

    1. When you first sign up for an account with Brewers Chronicle we will request information from you which we believe is necessary in order to best provide you with your service. We only collect your name and email address. At this stage we have not implemented a payment system, but we implement a system where credit cards are not held on our systems. Our privacy policy will be updated once the payment system is in place.
    2. Our systems will record your brewing and fermenting data. Our staff may on occasion access the files in your account either at your request or for security reasons as determined by Brewers Chronicle.
    3. There are protections in place so that all user information and brewing/fermenting logs are isolated from other users.
    4. After terminating your account with Brewers Chronicle we guarantee that all customer information and brewing/fermenting information will be deleted from our website database. This information will be temporarily retained in our backups system for a period of 7 days and will then be permanently deleted from our systems.

      Your account and all associated data can be deleted from the "My Account" area.

    5. We will treat all information we collect from you as strictly confidential. Brewers Chronicle will not distribute this information to any unassociated third parties intentionally. We will not reveal, disclose, sell, distribute, rent, license, share or pass onto any third party (other than to those who are contracted or supply services to Brewers Chronicle) any personal information that you have provided, unless we are required to-do so by law.
    6. You can update your account information by updating your details in the "My Account" area.
  3. Security

    1. Brewers Chronicle has a high security environment for storing customer information and is committed to protecting this information from unauthorised access. Only our staff responsible for customer accounts can access this information and even then only information which they may require. Constant changes to the Internet and technology mean that we cannot guarantee that data transmission will be 100% secure, or safe from attack by unauthorised intruders.
    2. We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to ensure that data is encrypted between our customers and all pages on our website. When viewing any page on the Brewers Chronicle website your session will be encrypted between your browser and our servers, preventing the possibility that somebody may intercept the data in transit.
