Who We Are

At The London Beer Factory we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site. In particular, we want you to know that The London Beer Factory is not in the business of selling, renting or trading email lists with other companies and businesses for marketing purposes. That’s not beer, and beer is what we know. But just in case you don’t believe us, in this Privacy Policy, we’ve provided the appropriate information on when and why we collect your personal information, how we use it, the limited conditions under which we may disclose it to others and how we keep it secure. Read away!

Google Analytics

When someone visits www.thelondonbeerfactory.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns.

Mailing Lists

As part of the registration process for our monthly e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you about what’s going on at the brewery, new beers and products; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied. We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using MailChimp’s built in tools to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp’s privacy notice.

The London Beer Factory Black Box Payments and Deliveries

Your London Beer Factory Black Box Subscription will be shipped on a monthly basis. The London Beer Factory Black Box Subscription payments will be taken on the same day each month.

 

Payment Info

All payments are taken via Paypal, we do not hold any financial data or card information on file and the payment provider is completely secure.

You will be entered into a regular credit or debit card payment schedule – you can cancel at any time by logging into your account at thelondonbeerfactory.com and choosing to manage subscription > cancel subscription.

If the card we have on file is about to expire we will email you asking for new card details to avoid any interruptions in service.

If the card we have on file is declined by your card issuer we will reattempt payment again after 1 day, 3 days and 5 days from the initial failed payment. After this time we will automatically cancel your subscription.

 

Cancellations & Payment Holiday

You can cancel your monthly payments at any time.

To cancel, just go to your The London Beer Factory Account page > The London Beer Factory Black Box Subscription and select Cancel Subscription. As long as this is done before the payment is taken for that month it will be immediately cancelled. If placed after the payment has been taken it will stop from the following month’s payment.

You can also choose to take a month’s payment holiday. If you choose to do this your payment will be put on hold for 1 month only and will restart automatically the following month. This will delay your free loyalty merchandise by 1 month.

 

Change of Details & Subscription

You can change your details at any time by going to your Account Page and updating your name, address, email and phone number information by a simple form.
