1. What personal information do we gather about you and how?

Personal information for the purpose of this Privacy Policy means any information that can be used to personally identify you or contact you online or offline. Personal information is only collected with your informed knowledge (i.e., if you knowingly provide it to us through one of the online forms available on our Digital Media) if you wish to participate in many of the features and services offered by our Digital Media as they may evolve from time to time including without limitation:

The types and amount of information collected for the features listed above will vary depending on the activity. The requested personal information will include your identification information as well as certain information related to your personal life and center of interests (depending on the activities you participate in)).

Subject to applicable law requirements, we may use a variety of technologies that collect and provide information about how our Digital Media is accessed and used by you as well as demographic information about the users of our Digital Media which we may obtain from third parties such as Google or social media that you use (“Usage Information”). Usage Information may consist of the pages you viewed, the time you viewed them, which beverage information or other content you accessed or provide, in what language, demographic information about you (such as your age, gender and interest areas, where available) and what pages you looked at before viewing the current page so that we get a better idea of how our users interact with our brands. Most Usage Information that we collect generally can't be linked to you individually, but if we can link it to you then we treat it as Your Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

3. For what purpose do we use your personal information?

Generally, all information collected is used for the purpose for which you submitted the information to us or as otherwise identified at the collection point or in this Privacy Policy. These purposes are mainly the following:

To ensure that your personal information remains accurate and up to date and avoid duplication in our database, we will ensure upon each of your interaction with one of our affiliates whether your personal information is still accurate or need to be completed or updated with the additional information you might have provided.

We may also use your email address to send you transactional or administrative communications (e.g., confirmation email when you sign up for, or unsubscribe from, a specific registration or activity), as well as certain service-related announcements (e.g., notices about updates to our Privacy Notice, discontinued features or programs on our Digital Media, changes to our online services or technical support policies, or other related changes), or promotional communications (subject to your consent, where required by applicable law). Collectively, these types of communications are referred to in this Privacy Policy as “Non Transactional Communications”.

Subject to applicable law requirement, this may include occasionally combining, updating, or otherwise enhancing the personal information collected through our Digital Media with data we receive from outside records or third parties. For instance, we may combine purely demographic or survey information (e.g., age, gender, household information, and other interests, etc.) not linked to any personal information about you with personal information collected in other cases (such as during account registration).

We may use your personal, the combined information above mentioned and/or demographic information for our internal marketing and demographic studies and to constantly improve, personalize, and customize the products and services we provide you to better meet your needs, unless if you object to such data processing in accordance with article 9 of this Privacy Policy.
