Legal & Compliance

Who I am

I am Neil Fletcher of 76 Goodman Street, Manchester M9 4EW, United Kingdom
This site is for the promotion of buying and selling BrewDog plc shares.
I am a sole shareholder (and was formerly a joint shareholder with my late husband, John Stewart), and my main Shareholder Reference Number is C0000000089
I also administer the shareholder accounts of several other investors, mainly close family.
I do not work for BrewDog, ComputerShare, AssetMatch, HMRC, or any of the other organizations dealing with BrewDog shares or other Private Equities.
BrewDog allows and encourages me to promote the trading on its investors Forum and elsewhere, as a service to other early investors who wish to realise cash from their investments.
My personal website address is:
You can email me at

BrewDog Trading
Whilst the site is used to promote our BrewDog UK share trading the site itself cannot and will not be used to trade shares. All share transfers have to be done by hard-copy paperwork, and all offers to buy and sell will be concluded by email or through direct messaging on the closed BrewDog Equity Punks Forum.

We are NOT brokers, but instead sell from our own shareholding before re-buying from other investors who wish to sell.
We register all sales over £1,000 with HMRC’s Birmingham Stamp Duty Office, and pay all taxes on any profits we make.

For large value transactions we must comply with Money Laundering regulations, and expect buyers and sellers co-operation in this regard.

If we make money from the trading we will of course pay our taxes on our profits, but the site is really here as a hobby site to assist our fellow investors.
If we cover our costs, time and risks, we are more than happy.
We are not interested in turning this site into a business, so will never want nor need web services to do so.
Sadly, I already know that saying this won’t stop me getting loads of unsolicited spam emails a week 😉

This is a hobby site, and not a business.
It is used primarily to help our fellow investors,

and we are not interested in web optimization, advertising or promotions of any kind.

The stuff below is the standard blurb from WordPress, the company whose web design tools I now use. I’ve added it for information, and as it may cover some of the WordPress functions I build into my site.

I’ve added the bits in red italics myself.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

This site is not used to collect any data except your email address and your basic enquiry about buying or selling BrewDog shares.
I will not use your email for any other reason than to reply to you, and will never pass your details to anyone else.

No information about any trades in shares is kept on this website.


I’m not planning to allow comments from other people on my site!

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymised string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

Who we share your data with

Only the relevant bodies should you decide to make a share transaction through us, such as BrewDog plc, ComputerShare plc and HMRC.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Nowhere, except to the relevant bodies should you decide to make a share transaction through us, such as BrewDog plc, ComputerShare plc and HMRC.
