This website is not aimed at or intended for children under the age of 16.
‘Personal Data’ is any information about an identifiable living individual but does not include information which you cannot link to a specific person. Your Personal Data is therefore information about and linked to you.
We may collect, use, store and transfer different kinds of your Personal Data, which may include:
(a) Identity Data such as first name, last name, marital status, date of birth and gender.
(b) Contact Data such as home address, billing address, email address and telephone numbers.

We also collect, use and share Aggregated Data such as statistical or demographic data. Aggregated Data may be derived from your Personal Data but is not Personal Data because it does not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Usage Data to find out how many users access a specific website feature.
If we combine or connect Aggregated Data with your Personal Data so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined data as Personal Data and will process it as set out in this Notice.
We may collect some items of Special Category Personal Data (which includes information about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data) but will normally only do so where we believe it is necessary in connection with issues relating to our products or for some other reason that we will advise to you when we collect the data.
Failure to Provide Personal Data Where Requested
Where we need to collect Personal Data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you, and you do not provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we either have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services) and so we may have to cancel the contract.
We use various methods to collect your Personal Data, including:
a. Directly from you - where you give us Personal Data such as your address, identity and marketing data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by post, phone, email or otherwise. This includes Personal Data you provide when you:
In addition, if you contact us by phone, email or otherwise, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
b. By automated means – when you interact with our website, we may automatically collect Technical Data about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. We collect this Personal Data by using cookies and other similar technologies. We may also receive Technical Data about you if you visit other websites employing our cookies.
c. From third parties and publicly available sources. We may receive Personal Data about you from various third parties as set out below:
We will only use your Personal Data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your Personal Data in the following circumstances:

You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us at: GDPR@kraftheinz.com
We may use your Personal Data for or in connection with the following purposes:
a. Where necessary to establish and perform your contract with us, such as where you buy products directly from us;

You can obtain further information on the legitimate interests balancing exercises which we have carried out by contacting the Data Privacy Team
We may share your data with third parties, including other companies within Kraft Heinz and with third-party service providers who provide services to us as further explained below.
Where we provide Personal Data to contractors and suppliers who provide services to us, including assistance with the processing activities set out in this notice, we will enter into a data processing agreement (including provisions required by GDPR) with those contractors and suppliers.
In order to fulfil our legal and other obligations and in connection with our rights including protection of our legitimate interest, we reserve the right to disclose Personal Data (or Special Category Data as appropriate) to law enforcement agencies, regulatory bodies, government agencies and other third parties as required by law or for administrative purposes (for example, HM Revenue and Customs in the UK) and to the extent that local law allows and/or requires this.
We may transfer Personal Data to other Kraft Heinz group companies, partners, suppliers, law enforcement agencies and to other organisations that are located outside the EEA for the purposes of:
The laws of some jurisdictions outside the EEA may not be as protective as Data Protection Laws in the EEA. Kraft Heinz will ensure that, for such jurisdictions, appropriate measures are in place for compliance with Data Protection Law in relation to transfer of Personal Data to those jurisdictions.
We have legal duties to keep various records and records need to be held for different periods of time, depending on their contents.
We will therefore keep Personal Data for as long as we reasonably consider we may need to in connection with those obligations.
Where we do not have keep Personal Data for a period specified by law we will not keep Personal Data for longer than Data Protection Law allows us to.
For further information about our approach to data retention, please see Kraft Heinz's Data Retention Policy.
Under Data Protection Laws you are entitled to ask Kraft Heinz for a copy of your Personal Data and to ask for it to be corrected, edited or have its processing restricted. In certain situations, you may also be entitled to ask Kraft Heinz to transfer some of your Personal Data to other organisations.
You may also have rights to object to some processing of your Personal Data although Kraft Heinz may continue that processing if it is required in connection with legal obligations.
Your Personal Data rights may be limited or subject to exceptions in some situations; for example, where Kraft Heinz demonstrates that it has a legal requirement to process your data, such as where tax authorities require us to retain it or where it is needed for proper performance of a contract.
Where Kraft Heinz has asked for your consent to process Personal Data and that consent is withdrawn we will not process that Personal Data further but may not be able to continue providing the goods or services for which the Personal Data was sought.
Where Kraft Heinz has a legal right or obligation to retain Personal Data or wishes to do so in connection with its legitimate interests, it may do so even if you have withdrawn consent for Kraft Heinz to hold your Personal Data.
Where Kraft Heinz requires Personal Data to comply with legal or contractual obligations, the provision of such data is mandatory. If such data is not provided Kraft Heinz will not be able to manage the employment or engagement relationship, or to meet obligations placed on it. In all other cases, provision of requested Personal Data is optional.
For any concerns or questions about how Kraft Heinz processes your Personal Data or have any questions in relation to your rights in respect of your Personal Data, please contact the Data Privacy Team at: GDPR@kraftheinz.com
In the first instance you should raise all data concerns with the Data Privacy Team but you also have the right to complain directly to data protection authorities at any time. The relevant data protection authority will be the supervisory authority in the same country as your employing entity.
