Personal information collected

We only collect personal information that is necessary for our functions and activities. For example, we may collect your personal information to resolve any queries you may have or if you have applied for employment with BAT.

In either case, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are aware of the purposes for which the information is collected.

Use and disclosure of personal information

For example, we may provide personal information about you to service providers who assist us in providing our services. These may include organisations that assist BAT with archival, research, mail and delivery, auditing, consulting, security or technology services.

We may otherwise use or disclose your personal information where required or authorised by law, which may include emergency situations and assisting law enforcement agencies.

In certain circumstances, we may not be required by law to provide you with access or to correct your personal information. If that is the case, we will give you our reasons for that decision.
