  • Information that you send us via the Website;
  • any communication you send us; and
  • Details of your visits to the Website and of the resources you access (which may include, among other things, traffic and communication data); 

At BAT we are fully aware that your information may be confidential, so we will protect this confidentiality in accordance with BAT's usual procedures and applicable legal requirements. We also inform you that the information we collect may include, for example, your name and surnames, address, date of birth or similar, which will only be processed for the purposes for which they are collected in each case.

In addition to the above, we bring to your knowledge the fact that BAT automatically collects information on how the Website visitors use the Website using cookies and similar technologies. For more information on how we use cookies, please examine our cookie policy.

At all events, we inform you that you do not need to give us any information, but if you do not do so, we may not be able to offer you all our products and services. For example, if you do not give us information so we can check your age, we may be unable to communicate with you or to allow you to access the Website content.

What do we use your information for?
Use of the information

We use your information for the following:

  • to ensure that the Website content is as suitable as possible for your interests;
  • for internal purposes, such as checking the quality of the service, operation of the Website, administration of systems, and to evaluate the Website, so that BAT can provide you with improved services;
  • to notify you of changes in our services;

  • to allow you to make use of all the characteristics of the Website, if you wish to do so.

You acknowledge and agree that BAT will be able to monitor your navigation via the Website and to record your email and/or IP address, operating system or browser. All this for the administration of the System and to share aggregate and anonymised information with our collaborators. This information will be statistical in nature and will not in any way permit your identification.

We collect statistical and aggregate information (and which under no circumstances will be personal) on visitors to the Website in relation to sales and traffic patterns. To be clear, we inform you that this information does not identify users personally and we do not use it to create individual user profiles: it only contains general information on the Website's users.

We also inform you that we will not keep your personal data for longer than necessary and only for the purposes for which we request them, unless we consider that we have to keep them pursuant to a legal provision (for example following a court or administrative demand).

Consequently, once there is no reason to keep your information, we will delete it from our systems.

Sharing your information

Notwithstanding the above, we inform you that BAT may share your information with third parties in the following cases:

  • in the case of transfer by BAT of any business unit or assets (we may share your information with the possible purchaser or vendor), including in the case where an essential part of our assets is purchased by a third party, as in this case your information will be transferred to that third party;
  • with any other company of the group to which BAT belongs, in accordance with Article 42 of the Commercial Code;
  • with our employees, agencies, suppliers, subcontractors for the performance of any contract that may be in progress; and
  • if we have to share your information to comply with legal or statutory requirements, or if we have to do so to ensure compliance with or enforcement of our terms and conditions or any other current agreement with you or to protect our rights, property or customers, etc. This may involve the exchange of information with other companies and organisations for the purpose of protection against fraud and reduction of the risk.

Where do we transfer your information?

Your information may be transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA) in the cases described in the “Sharing your Information” section.

BAT would like to ensure that your information is stored and transferred in a secure manner. We therefore only transfer outside the EEA in strict compliance with current data protection regulations and taking the security measures that are appropriate for each case, for example:

  • By intra-group agreements between entities belonging to the BAT group, which include the contractual clauses established by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data to countries where the security level is not equivalent, or
  • By data transfer agreements with third parties which include the contractual clauses established by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data where the security level is not equivalent, or
  • In the case of transfer of your information from EEA entities to United States entities belonging to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, or any equivalent entity in other jurisdictions, or belonging to jurisdictions with an adequate level of security according to the European Commission
  • When necessary to fulfil a contract between BAT and a third party who is of interest to you, or
  • When you have given your consent to the transfer of your data, or
  • When we transfer your data outside the EEA to a country without the adequate level of protection, BAT will take reasonable measures to ensure that your information is processed in a secure manner in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Notice.
