1. What personal information do we gather about you and how?
Personal information is only collected with your informed knowledge i.e. when you knowingly submit it to us. This usually occurs when you take part in one of our many promotional activities or subscribe to one of our Digital Services, for example:
· Registration or sign-up online: e.g. subscribing to a newsletter specific to our Digital Services or creating an account to be a member of a club;
· ‘Send to a friend’ marketing communications;

· Any other request that requires the submission of personal information.
The type and amount of information we collect for the features listed above depends on the activity, and the personal information we collect may include: first and last name, email address, home address and telephone number (work or home). For some activities, you might be asked to create a username and/or password and/or to provide additional information, including: (i) your age or date of birth, (ii) gender, (iii) frequency of use, (iv) facts about your household, lifestyle, interests and/or, (v) other information relevant to you.

Usage Information may consist of the pages you looked at, the time you looked at them and which beverage information (or other content) you accessed or provided. It also includes which language you use, demographic information about you (such as your age, gender and interest areas, where available) and which pages you looked at before you visited the current page.
2. How and why do we use tracking technologies?
Pernod Ricard uses tracking technologies such as cookies, IP address recording or log files, to gather technical information such as your web browser type and which operating system you use, the webpage you came from, your path through our website and your Internet Service Provider. This is so we can improve the functionality of our websites and better understand how visitors like you use our Digital Services and the tools they offer.
These tracking technologies help us tailor our Digital Services to your personal needs:
· An IP address is a number used on a network to identify your computer every time you connect to the Internet. We may keep track of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to (among other things): (i) troubleshoot technical issues, (ii) maintain website safety and security, (iii) restrict access to our Digital Services to certain users, and, (iv) better understand how our Digital Services are utilized;
· We (or a third party on our behalf) may collect information in the form of logs files that record activity and gather statistics about browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously, and help us gather (among other things) (i) your web browser type and operating system, (ii) information about your session (such as the URL you came from, the date and time you visited our digital service, and which pages you viewed and for how long), and, (iii) other similar navigational or click-stream data. We also use log file information for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve and customize the online services we offer you. Log files are only used internally, and are not associated with any personally identifiable individual.
3. For what purpose do we use your personal information?
When you register or sign-up via our Digital Services: the personal information you give is used to provide you with the benefits that typically come along with registration. This includes the ability to receive communications you select at the time of registration or that automatically come with your registration. For example, subscription to a newsletter, creation of an account, participation in a sweepstake or contest, invitation to or attendance at an event organized by Pernod Ricard;
· When you use the ‘Send to a friend’ feature: personal information for one-time use (typically, names and email addresses) is used only once (e.g., to send a message) and is not retained by us;
· When using e-commerce on some of our websites: we use your personal information to manage your order and deliver your products (or a third party on our behalf);
· When you use a QR Code displayed on Pernod Ricard products: we use your personal information to send you more information on the products where the QR code was displayed or other products;
· When you submit personal information on the iPads or other mobile devices available in Heritage Centers or distilleries: this is used to send you more information on the products;
· Feedback, questions, or comments through our ‘Contact Us’ form and our ‘Tell Us’ compliance reporting system: if you contact us via an online contact form, your information is used to respond to your inquiry or comment.
When you submit your personal information, you may also be given the option (through a tick box or otherwise) to have your information used for an activity or service different from the one you are requesting. For example, if you enter a contest to win a prize, you may also be invited to sign up for a newsletter about other Pernod Ricard products. If you choose to have your information used for another activity or service in this way we will use your information to provide them to you.
We may also use your personal and/or demographic information for our internal marketing and demographic studies. This helps us constantly improve, personalize, and customize the products and services we provide.
Subject to applicable laws, this may include occasionally combining, updating, or otherwise enhancing the personal information collected through our Digital Services with anonymized data we get from outside records or third parties.
4. What happens if you do not wish to share your personal information with us?
If you choose not to submit any personal information when requested, you may not be able to participate in certain activities or use some of the personalized features of our Digital Services. This will also limit the services and special offers we can provide you.
