It is the commitment of Beer Me Now to respect and protect the privacy of any party that engages with us, in person and online.

For the purpose of the Data Protection Act 1998, the data controller is Beer Me Now.
The company’s use of Data Protection is handled by our in-house Data Protection Officer.
