We log IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our website. IP addresses are logged to track a user’s session. This gives us an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means that a users session will be tracked, but the user will be anonymous.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
Registration is not required in order to use or access Red Bank Whisky websites. We may collect Personal Information when you enter a contest or other promotional activities through our websites, when you participate in interactive online activities and/or when you contact us to make requests or comment on our services. You may be required to register for these features, particularly if you wish to enter a contest or promotional activity or leave comments.
We also provide visitors to our websites the opportunity to opt-in to receive communications from us. In this case, we may ask the visitor for his or her email address, first name and last name, or username, address, city, province, phone number, postal code and birth date. These communications will include our regular newsletter, product promotions and any other information that we feel may be pertinent to the visitor. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications by emailing us at email@example.com, or by replying to any email we send you and entering the word UNSUBSCRIBE in the subject line.
We may use your personal information for marketing analysis, for example, to assess trends amongst our consumers and what people are saying about our products, to evaluate the impact and effectiveness of our marketing campaigns and promotions, and to analyse the number and types of visitors to our websites and/or users of our apps (including the locations from which such visitors/users access our websites and apps). We often aggregate personal information for these purposes so that it no longer identifies any particular individual.
We use techniques such as “online behavioural advertising” and “programmatic advertising” which involve the use of personal information, which includes the information we automatically collect/generate as referred to above (such as information about your online activity and/or personal preferences), as well as other information you provide to us (such as your contact details) and information regarding your online purchase (and the sharing of it with our service providers) to display the most appropriate and relevant advertising to you either on our websites, apps or third-party websites (including social media platforms).
Similarly, we may also use such personal information (and share it with our service providers as described below) in order to determine if you are a member of a particular social media platform so that we can display our advertising to you on that service or we can identify consumers who share similar interests and characteristics with you for the purposes of making our advertising more relevant to consumers – examples of this are Facebook’s “Custom Audiences” and “Lookalike Audiences” products which we may use in certain countries subject to local law. In relation to these products, we act as joint controller of your data.
See the section on Cookies below for more details about online interest-based advertising. You have the right to opt-out at any time from the use of your personal information for online interest-based advertising.
We use personal information for system administration purposes and to diagnose service or technology problems reported by our users or engineers, these types of problem may be associated with the IP addresses controlled by a specific web company or ISP.
