Our Services are aimed to let people share thoughts on their favourite whiskies. Any registered user of the Drammit Services can check-in drams, which is a post about a glass of whisky the person is drinking. A so-called Dram can contain a rating, a picture and a message about the Dram. Drams are publicly available by default.
Your information is controlled by Drammit, Fabriekstraat 6k, Deurne in The Netherlands. Despite this, you alone control and are responsible for the posting of your Dram and other content you submit through the Services, as provided in the Terms of Service and Drammit Rules.
Irrespective of which country you live in, you authorize us to use your information in, and as a result to transfer it to and store it in, The Netherlands, and any other country where we operate. Privacy and data protection laws in some of these countries may vary from the laws in the country where you live.
Information Collection and Use
Basic Account Information: When you create or reconfigure an account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, or email address. On the Drammit Services, your name and username are listed publicly, including on your profile page and in search results, and you can use either your real name or a pseudonym. Some Drammit Services, such as searching and viewing public user profiles, do not require registration.
You may use your contact information, such as your email address, to customize your account or enable Services, for example for login verification. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services, to market to you, to help prevent spam, fraud, or abuse, and to help others find your account, including through third-party services and client applications.
You may provide us with profile information to make public on the Drammit Services, such as a picture. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request.
Drams, Following, and other Public Information:
Our Services are primarily designed to help you share your favourite whisky with the world. Most of the information you provide us through the Drammit Services is information you are asking us to make public. Your public information includes the Drams you check-in; the metadata provided with Drams, such as when you checked-in; the language and time zone associated with your account; people you follow and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Drammit Services. We may use this information to make inferences, like what whiskies you may be interested in, and to customize the content we show you, including ads. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide through the Drammit Services public for as long as you do not delete it. The Drammit Services broadly and instantly disseminate your public information to a wide range of users, customers, and services. For instance, your public user profile information and public Drams are immediately delivered our APIs to our partners and other third parties, including search engines, developers, and publishers that integrate Drammit content into their services, and institutions such as universities and public health agencies that analyze the information for trends and insights. When you share information or content like photos via the Services, you should think carefully about what you are making public.
Drammit may receive information about your location. For example, you may choose to publish your location in your Dram and in your Drammit profile. We may also determine location by using other data from your device, such as precise location information from GPS, information about wireless networks or cell towers near your mobile device, or your IP address. We may use and store information about your location to provide features of our Services, and to improve and customize the Services, for example, with more relevant content like local whisky bars, Drams, ads, and suggestions for people to follow.
When you use our Services, we may receive information (“Log Data”) such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device information (including device and application IDs), search terms, and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications. Drammit uses Log Data to provide, understand, and improve our Services, to make inferences, like what topics you may be interested in, and to customise the content we show you, including ads. If not already done earlier we will either delete Log Data or remove any common account identifiers, such as your username, full IP address, or email address, after a maximum of 18 months.
You may provide your payment information, including your credit or debit card number, card expiration date, CVV code, and billing address (collectively, “Payment Information”), along with your shipping address, to complete a commerce transaction through our Services. To facilitate future purchases, we store your Payment Information (excluding CVV code) and shipping address, which you can remove from your account at any time using your account settings. We consider your Payment Information and shipping address private and do not make such information public. We collect and store information created by your purchases made through our Services (“Transaction Data”). Transaction Data may include the merchant’s name and the date, time, and amount of the transaction.
Third-Parties and Affiliates:
Drammit uses a variety of third-party services to help provide our Services, such as hosting our various blogs, and to help us understand and improve the use of our Services, such as Mixpanel Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your device as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address. Third-party ad partners may share information with us, like a browser cookie ID, website URL visited, mobile device ID, or cryptographic hash of a common account identifier (such as an email address), to help us measure and tailor ads. For example, this allows us to display ads about things you may have already shown interest in off of our Services.
