Privacy Policy

​1. Our data promise to you

1.1 Beaver & Grouse Ltd is absolutely committed to respecting and protecting your data whilst it is in our care. We collect your personal information because it helps us to understand your needs and guides the way in which we interact and communicate with you about our products and services now and in the future. We have strict policies and procedures in place to protect your data when you send it to us, when we process it in order to provide you with the services you have requested or, where you have given us your permission to do so, to send you information that we think you'll find interesting, and thereafter when we store your data on our secure servers. We are registered with the Information Commissioner's Office under reference: ZB628183, the regulator of the Data Protection Act 1998 and abide by its requirements.

2. What personal data do we collect?

2.1 Beaver & Grouse Ltd collects both Personal Data and Anonymous Data when you send us information or when you visit one of our websites. When we talk about Personal Data we mean any information that can identify you as an individual, such as your name and postal address. Anonymous Data doesn't identify you as a person but it might be used in aggregate, for instance when you participate in a survey.

3. How do we keep it secure?

3.1 Our servers are protected using HTTP and SSL encryption technology (HTTPS where indicated in your web browsers address bar), so whilst your data is in our care we know it is as secure as it can be. We are taking all reasonable steps to meet our obligations and responsibilities under the Data Protection Act 1998 and other privacy legislation, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

3.2 When we ask another organisation to provide a service for us, we ensure that they have appropriate security measures in place. If we or our service providers transfer any information out of the European Economic Area (EEA), it will only be transferred with the correct protection in place, as stated in UK law. The internet is not a totally secure medium and you acknowledge and agree that Beaver & Grouse Ltd shall not be responsible for unauthorised use, distribution, damage or destruction of personal data, except to the extent that we are required to accept such responsibility under the Data Protection Act 1998.
