-          Companies approved by you, such as social media sites (if you choose to link your accounts to us) and payment providers who may link an account to your Gweniss account

Marketing messages


Marketing messages

If you register an account with Gweniss, we think knowing about the products we can offer is a fundamental benefit of your account. When you register, we will send you marketing messages unless you ask us not to, which you can do immediately or at any time. 

If you shop with us but do not wish to have an account, for example if you give us your details when you order a gift, we will only send you marketing messages if you give your consent.

We may send you marketing messages by email, post, text and push notification to keep you aware of the latest news from Gweniss. You can choose whether or not to receive them in any of these ways by using your Account Settings on our website or by getting in touch with us.


How to stop Marketing Messages

If you don’t want to receive marketing messages from us, in a specific way or at all, the best way to do this is via your Account Settings on our website, which will help you control all your notification settings.

You can edit your marketing messaging settings by:

-          Visiting your Account Settings

-          Click the unsubscribe links in any emails or SMS messaging

-          Contacting the Gweniss team on:

  • Email:
  • Telephone:  +44(0)141 352 6903 – Monday to Friday 9 am to 5:00 pm UK time excluding bank and public holidays

Once you have done this we will make sure your profile is updated and you don’t receive unwanted marketing materials from us. Please note, due to our technical set up the impacts of any changes may take up to 48 hours to take effect – in the meantime we apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Gweniss advertising online


Gweniss engage in online advertising to attract new customers, to keep you aware of what we are up to and to help you find and see our products.

Like many other companies, we target banners and ads to you when you are on other websites, applications and search engines. This is done using a variety of digital marketing techniques including ad exchanges and marketing networks using several advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels, ad tags, cookies, mobile identifies, as well as specific services offered by some sites and social networks (such as Facebook’s Custom Audience services). We adhere to all advertiser policies and stick to strict rules and regulations set out by several advertising standards bodies as well as alcohol and spirits marketing policies.

The banners and ads you will see are based on information we hold about you, or your previous use of our website. This includes information from the products you may have browsed on the website, the content you have engaged with or the advertising you may have previously responded to.


Keeping your information, data sharing and transfers



We shall retain information as necessary to meet legal or regulatory requirements, resolve disputes, prevent fraud and abuse or enforce our terms and conditions. We may also need to keep your details if you have asked us not to contact you with marketing, to ensure you do not accidentally hear from us again.



We need to share your data with other companies who process it to provide services for Gweniss. Some of our data processors will process data we provide to them outside of the EU. We will protect your privacy and your rights in the contracts we hold with our processors.
