Club Suntory has a strong commitment to instil a responsible approach to drinking. We want to make a real contribution to creating a more positive role for alcohol in society, promoting the social benefits of responsible drinking.
Alcohol has been a common source of pleasure for centuries. We all know that most consumers drink responsibly, but a minority misuse alcohol and cause harm to themselves and to society. The misuse of alcohol is a complex issue involving physiological, psychological, social and cultural factors. Most experts acknowledge that to reduce it requires multiple approaches including effective, enforced regulation, information campaigns and individual interventions.
Advertising for alcoholic beverages is subject to strict laws and self-regulation. Suntory demonstrates its ongoing compliance with these standards by ethical marketing and promoting responsible drinking throughout all of our marketing campaigns. We aim to maintain high standards of responsibility in our own activities and promote these strongly in our industry, we apply our best creative talents and resources to try and change people’s attitudes to alcohol and reduce its misuse.
To know more about responsible drinking, go to the Distilled Spirits Industry council of Australia website at http://www.dsica.com.au/
Those who serve alcohol in bars are in a good position to affect the way their customers behave. We have put this influence to good use for many years by training bartenders in responsible serving techniques and dealing effectively with drinkers who have had enough. Our marketing activities meet the highest standards of responsibility

A FURTHER WORD ON "COOKIES"
HOW SECURE IS MY INFORMATION?
Your information is stored on a computer server located in California, USA. We attempt to keep our server secure and free from unauthorised access and use, by enforcing security at the premises in which the server is located, and by using industry standard technological measures to prevent unauthorised remote access to the server.
Sensitive information, such as credit card and related financial information that is transmitted to our and from our servers is secured using encryption methods such as secure socket layers technology (SSL). You will know when transmitted data is safe by the appearance of a security notice when you enter a secure page. A secure icon will also appear on your browser - for Microsoft Internet Explorer this is a lock icon, and for Netscape Navigator it is small key icon. Finally, you can identify secure pages by the fact that they begin with "https://" (as opposed to http:// for standard pages).
Unfortunately, no server on the Internet nor any data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Despite our best efforts to keep our server and transmissions to and from our server secure, we are unable to absolutely guarantee security and there will always be a risk of unauthorised access to your information. Although we will take all reasonable steps to keep secure any information that we hold about you, we will not be held responsible for events arising from unauthorised access to such information.

You are responsible for keeping you own records relating to your use of the Site and any transactions conducted via it, and for complying with any applicable record keeping legislation.
