About us

Tinkture is an ethical, high quality, hand crafted and environmentally sustainable beverage brand.

Tinkture Ltd’s main office is located at Trelay, Penwartha Road, Perranporth, TR6 0DH. For the purposes of data protection law, Tinkture Ltd will be the controller and processor of personal information.

Personal information

Personal information can be anything that identifies and relates to a living person. This can include information that when put together with other information can then identify a person. For example, this could be your name, contact details, or national insurance number.

Why do we need your personal information?

We may need to use some information about you to:

  • Deliver products and support to you (your Tinkture orders and enquiries)

  • Manage the customer support we provide to you

  • Recruit train and manage the employment of our workers who deliver our customer support

  • Help follow up any feedback or concerns you have about us

  • Monitor the effectiveness of what we do and what we make.

  • Check the quality of what we do and what we make (internally and by external organisations)

  • Help with research and planning of new products and services.

Keeping you in control

We want to ensure you remain in control of your personal information. Part of this is making sure you understand your legal rights, which are as follows:

  • the right to confirmation as to whether or not we have your personal data and, if we do, to be able to obtain a copy of the personal information we hold (this is known as Subject Access Request);

  • the right to have your data erased (although this will not apply where it is necessary for us to continue to use the data for a lawful reason);

  • the right to have inaccurate data rectified

  • the right to object to your data being used for marketing or profiling

  • where technically feasible; you have the right to personal data you have provided to us (which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or the performance of a contract) to be provided in a commonly used and machine-readable format and to reuse it for your own purposes. This is known as the ‘right to data portability’

Please keep in mind that there are exceptions to the rights above and though we will always try to respond to your satisfaction there may be situations where we are unable to do so.

If you would like further information on your rights or wish to exercise them, please write to our Data Protection Lead, Tinkture Ltd, Trelay, Penwartha Road, Perranporth TR6 0DH or email hello@wearetinkture.com

When do we collect information about you?

We collect information about you when you contact Tinkture to receive a product, customer support or when you are put in touch we us by another person or organisation.

When you provide us with personal information to complete a transaction, verify your credit card, place an order, arrange for a delivery or return a purchase, we imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only. You are engaging with us in an agreement for the provision of those agreed services (known as a ‘contract’ for lawful processing).

If we ask for your personal information for a secondary reason, like marketing, we will either ask you directly for your expressed consent, or provide you with an opportunity to say no.

What information do we collect about you?

The personal information we collect will include your name, address, contact details, and details relating to the specific product you have enquired about, purchased or customer support you have received.

Personal information can be anything that can be used to identify an individual, not limited to but including name, address, date of birth, marital status, contact information, financial records and intentions to acquire goods and services.

We do not hold any financial data or records. We use Stripe.com and Paypal as our payment gateway, please refer to their privacy policies here:

We may collect information from social media where you have given us permission to do so, or if you post on one of our social media pages.

How will we use the information about you?

We collect information about you in order to:

  • carry out our obligations arising from any agreement entered into by you and us, for the provision of products, information and support to you in relation to the product or service you receive from us;

  • seek your views or comments on the products and services we provide;

  • notify you of changes to our products and services;

  • send you communications which you have requested;

  • inform our future product and service development.

We occasionally carry out analysis of data we hold about customers, to better understand the value of our work, who our customers are and identify patterns and trends. This helps inform how we work and make Tinkture a stronger and more effective organisation and provide better products and services.

How long will we hold your information?

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as we legally required to hold them for a specified time.

Where there is not a specified time period for retention in law or in official government guidelines, we follow best practice guidelines from the Information Commissioner’s Office and carefully consider an appropriate retention period for the personal information we hold.

We may aggregate and anonymise personal data so that it can no longer be linked to any particular person. This information can be used for a variety of purposes, such as reporting and identifying trends to help inform our actions and improve what we do.

How do we store your information?

Tinkture Ltd operations are based in the UK and we store our data within the European Union. Some organisations which provide services to us may transfer personal data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), but we’ll only allow them to do this if your data is adequately protected.

For example, our online shop is hosted on Squarespace. They provide us, via third parties, Strip and Paypal with the online e-commerce platform that allows us to sell our products and services to you. Your data is stored through their data storage, databases and the general Squarespace application.

Squarespace have self-certified to the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield, which allows them to lawfully transfer EU and Swiss personal data to the US, including to their US-based data centers. You can read more about Squarespace’s Privacy Shield certifications here.

How do we protect your information?

We employ a variety of physical and technical measures to keep your data safe and to prevent unauthorised access to, or use or disclosure of your personal information.

Electronic data and databases are stored on secure computer systems and we control who has access to information (using both physical and electronic means).

Storing paper documents securely in locked cupboards and destroying paper documents promptly when they are no longer needed.

Our staff receive data protection training and we have a set of detailed data protection procedures which personnel are required to follow when handling personal data.

We carry out regular data audits to ensure the quality and security of the data we hold.

All electronic forms that request data will use the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol to encrypt the data between your browser and our servers that are hosted via Squarespace.

Please note; we cannot guarantee the security of your home computer or the internet, and any online communications (e.g. information provided by email or our website) are at the user’s own risk.

In the unlikely event that there is a data breach we have a procedure in place to inform the Information Commissioner’s Office and anyone whose personal information was mishandled. We will investigate any breaches or near misses immediately to ensure it does not happen again.

When will we share information about you?

We will never sell your personal data, and will only ever share it with organisations we work with where necessary and if its privacy and security are guaranteed.

If you request that we refer you to a third party organisation we will only undertake this with your permission.

We may share personal data with subcontractors or suppliers who provide us with services. However, these activities will be carried out under a contract which imposes strict requirements on our supplier to keep your information confidential and secure.

Occasionally, where we partner with other organisations, we may also share information with them (for example, if you register to attend an event being jointly organised by us and another business). We’ll only share information when necessary and we’ll make sure to notify you first.
