Packaging and the environment
We are committed to keeping the environment free of unnecessary waste. We therefore aim to reuse packaging as much as possible to minimise the impact we have, after all we rely on our beautiful land to give us the water and grains which make whisky production possible.
This means your order may well arrive in a box & with packaging which has previously been used. Boxes and packaging are carefully checked to ensure suitability for onward use, and we'll only reuse clean, clear and uncontaminated items. All packaging is quarentined for at least 2 weeks or longer before being used to ensure it is free from any virus or other contaminations invisible to the human eye.
Where recycling packaging is not possible due to incorrect sizes / damaged boxes we aim to use environmentally sustainable products that can then be recycled by the purchaser.
We hope you will appreciate and support us with this.
Data Protection and GDPR
The security of your information is very important to us.
Whiskey's Orchard collects and uses your data in order to process your order and ship it to you. We do not collect or pass on any data that is not essential to our service. To process and deliver our service we use a variety of third party organisations as specified below. Your information is provided to these parties on a need to know basis and links to their GDPR policies are provided below. To help protect your information Whiskey's Orchard has vetted these companies to ensure they have suitable policies in place. This Policy covers only that Data which we have collected for our own purposes. Third Party companies may collect data for their own use, please use the links below for further information. If you prefer us to use one company over another due to data protection concerns please let us know.
We do have an opt-in mailing list which interested customers may choose to join. Information is stored purely by Whiskey's Orchard and is used purely for the intended purpose of providing further news to those customers. Membership of this list is purely voluntary and any person wishing to be removed may do so at any time by emailing the team at firstname.lastname@example.org or using the feedback form on the website.
STRIPE This is the payment system app used within WIX to process orders. They use a coding system to keep your details safe. Further information about their data security can be found here.
PAYPAL We also offer customers the ability to pay for their goods through PayPal. Payments made in this way will therefore adhere to the data protection policy of paypal. Information on this can be found here.
MY HERMES We generally use My Hermes for the shipping of items. We find them to be very reliable. To ship your items we do need to provide them with your details including either a telephone number or email to contact you should any issues arise. Further information about the data they collect and their security is available here. Please note they only receive your name, address and contact info, no financial information is passed across.
APC This is another courier service we sometimes use. Again as with My Hermes the information that is given to them is just that which is required for safe delivery of your item. Further information is available here.
ROYAL MAIL At times we also use Royal Mail for shipping goods. Their security information can be found here.
SUM UP If you buy from us at other places - such as Festivals, and you pay by card we use a system called SumUp to take and process your payment. This enables us to use the mobile networks to take card payments when we're in the middle of a field! As part of this payment receipts are available by email or mobile phone using the SumUp system. The security of your financial information and your contact details are managed by SumUp and you can view their data security policy here. Much of this policy applies to the owner of the account (which is Whiskey's Orchard) however for the customer card holder security please go to section 6 of the policy. SumUp is certified as compliant under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS).
