No.1 Fairham Gin – Privacy policy.

At No.1 Fairham Gin we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. As a company and as business owners we shop online so we understand how important privacy is.

This policy sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us.  Please read the following to understand our practices regarding your personal data and how it will be treated and if you have any questions, please just ask.

This policy is effective and updated as of January 2021.

1. About us

References in this privacy policy to “we”, “us” , “our” and “No.1 Fairham Gin” are to No.1 Fairham Gin, part of the Stemson McKeown Distillery Limited company incorporated and registered in the United Kingdom. Our company number is available at request.

2. Changes to this policy

We may make changes to this privacy policy from time to time. Any changes will be posted on this page and the date at the top of this privacy policy will be updated accordingly. We recommend that you check this page periodically in order to review the latest version.

3. Refunds 

We are only able to process refunds on any items that are faulty or damaged and won’t accept any bottles back that are opened and used. Items are sold as seen and are standard to product descriptions listed by us on our website. As we are a small company, all of our No.1 Fairham Gin bottle labels are applied by hand so there may be some discrepancies from bottle to bottle. Please bear this in mind before applying for a refund as this will be dealt with on a case by case basis where we have the right to reject your refund based on this. We will always do our best to find an outcome in any situation so please be respectful when applying for a refund. If you do wish to request a refund then please contact sales@no1fairhamgin.com via email with a full description including any images if necessary. Finally, we withhold the right to reject and/or immediately refund any order for our own reasoning.

5. COVID-19 and How This May Affect Your Order

We are aware of the disruption that COVID-19 has made to shipping, and as such would like to make you aware of this.

6. Managing your marketing preferences

We will never share or sell your data to third parties for marketing purposes.

When you provide your email address to us you may be asked if you would like to opt in to receive marketing communications. We will only send you marketing communications where you have consented to receive them. We will only send you marketing communications via the channel you have consented to (for example post or email).
