Benchmark Brewery respects the privacy of our visitors and customers, and recognises the need to protect the personal information that you provide to us. We have therefore established this Privacy Policy to assist you to understand what information we collect and how that information is used when you visit our website.

From time to time, we will review and may make updates to this Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change to this policy will constitute your acceptance of such changes.


Personal information is information that can be used to identify or contact a specific individual, such as a name, address or email address.


We divide the personal information we collect into two categories: information you explicitly provide, and information that you casually provide.

On our website we may ask for specific Personal Information from you, which will be used to contact you and customise the offerings that Benchmark Brewery makes to you. We will only collect the Personal Information that you knowingly provide to us, and we will only do so when it helps us to tailor our offerings to your interests.

In addition, as you browse our website, we may automatically collect information about your time on our site and the content that you access whilst browsing it. While we do not intend any of this information to be Personal Information, it may be possible to combine this information with other information, making it Personal Information. If we do so, passively collected information about your browsing of our web sites will be considered Personal Information.

We may use the Personal Information that we collect to exercise what is called our legitimate interests, meaning that we may use the data for reasons that are in your and/or our interest, while ensuring your privacy rights are fully protected. You can opt out of any marketing or communications we make on this basis at any time.

Automatically collected information is analysed to improve our web sites, and includes without limitation details such as the IP address assigned to you when you accessed our web site, what pages you visited, how long you spent on each page, and how you found the Benchmark Brewery website. This information can be used to answer such questions as “How do people find out about Benchmark Brewery?” and “What are the most popular pages on the Benchmark Brewery website?”.


The Benchmark Brewery web site does use “cookies” on its web site. Cookies are identifiers that can be sent from a web site and placed on your hard drive by your browser, and sent back to Benchmark Brewery when you browse our website. You may elect not to accept cookies by instructing your browser not to accept cookies from Benchmark Brewery website, and if you do so, you will still be able to browse our web sites. However, certain interactive functionality of our web sites may not be available if you do not accept cookies from Benchmark Brewery.

Cookie information is used in much the same way as automatically collected information about your browsing of our web sites, and may be used to link together multiple visits you may make to our web sites. This information helps us answer questions such as “What product information is most of interest to regular visitors to our web site?” and “What types of offers do regular visitors to our web site prefer?”.

Our site uses three types of cookies:

  • ‘Analytical’ cookies allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by making sure users are finding what they need easily.

  • ‘Functional’ cookies allow us to remember choices you make, such as your login details. We use these cookies to show you are logged in (where applicable) and display relevant confirmation pages when you interact with our site.

  • ‘Third party’ cookies are set by external web sites whose services are used on this site. They allow you to share content on social networks and comment on content on the site.


These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on this site. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons across the site that allow visitors to share content on social networks and comment on content on the site. In order to connect our site to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing on the internet, including on this website.

You should check the respective policies of the third-party services to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.


In addition to using cookies and related technologies as described above, we also may permit certain third party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to users and to collect and use other data about user activities on our websites (e.g., to allow them to tailor ads on third party services). These companies may deliver ads that might also place cookies and otherwise track user behaviour. These companies may use information about user behaviour in order to provide customised advertisements across various services and products. In the course of providing these services, products or placing advertisements, these third party companies may place or recognise a unique cookie on your computer, and may record information to these cookies based upon your activities on any of our Sites and/or Services and on third party websites. Each of these companies uses this cookie information according to their own privacy and security policies. Please note that if you turn cookies off, you will still continue to receive generic advertising.


If you provide your email address to Benchmark Brewery, we may use it to contact you directly regarding your interest in our company. For example, if you ask us for information on our products, we will email you with the requested information and may contact you to provide follow-on information. Every email we send you will include a link that can be used to unsubscribe from the mailing list associated with that email, as well as a reference to the email address that was originally used to sign up.
