Philip Morris is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
What information do we collect and how do we use and share it?
You may voluntarily supply us with personal information which may include your name, address, phone number and e-mail address. If you are submitting an application to work with us this may also include other potentially sensitive information. In these cases, the information that we collect and use will normally be apparent from the context in which you provide information.
When you browse our website, we may collect and use certain information about your device and use of the website. The information collected may include details of your IP address or unique device identifier, location data, details of any cookies that we may have stored on your device, and details of the pages accessed, search terms entered, or links clicked within the website.
From time to time, and only where permitted by law, we may acquire information about you from third parties. This may include publicly available profile information on third party social medial sites (such as Facebook and Twitter), and lists acquired from third party agencies.
We may use and share personal information about you for a variety of reasons, which will either be specified to you, or be clear from the context, at the point information about you is first collected. We will collect and use information about you only in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
In general, we may use information about you for the following purposes:
- information that you provide is typically used for verifying your age; dealing with your enquiries and providing you with information that you have requested; responding to specific queries you may have regarding The EVOLV Graduate Program
- information that is collected automatically is typically used for business analytics reasons; to send you personalised communications that may interest you; and to assist us to improve the information and services we provide;
- information that we acquire from third parties may (where permitted by law) be combined with other information about you in order to update or supplement our records and to provide you with information about our services that is better tailored to your needs.
We may share personal information about you with:
- other third parties, where required or permitted by law, for example: regulatory authorities; government departments; in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials; when we consider disclosure to be necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; and in the context of organisational restructuring.
Where might information be sent?
Personal information about you may be transferred either within or outside the country or territory where it was collected, including to a country, territory or international organisation that may not have equivalent data protection standards. In all cases we will implement adequate measures (including appropriate security measures) for the protection of personal information in those countries, territories or international organisations in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
How long will information be kept?
The period for which we may retain personal information about you will depend upon the purposes for which the information was collected, whether you have requested the deletion of the information, and whether any legal obligations require the retention of the information (for example, for tax and accounting purposes). In general, we will not retain personal information about you for longer than is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected.
