Non-personally Identifiable Information

Using technology, a website can collect information about the type of browser you are using, your operating system and your IP address information using technology. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer and is recognised by web technology whenever you are surfing the Internet. None of this information is considered personally identifiable information. As technology evolves, additional methods of information gathering may be used such as 'pixel tags' (also known as 'web beacons' and 'clear gifs').

We do not use cookies and other technologies to collect the above non-personally identifiable information.

Heineken is not liable for information that is inaccurate due to technical defects in software used on our website, whether induced by our systems or by software provided by third parties.

You can use the majority of our website without being required to divulge any personally identifiable information to us. To participate in or use some of the activities available on our website (such as entering a contest or contacting us) you may be required to provide certain personally identifiable information (such as your name and e-mail address).

When corresponding with you via e-mail, we may a variety of technologies, such as 'clear gifs' or 'web beacons', to let us know, among other things, whether you received and opened our e-mail. The clear gif included in the e-mail may with your consent establish a cookie on your system that further allows us to tailor information to fit your personal interests.

Heineken will not trade, sell or share such personally identifiable information for use by any third parties unless we have informed you, been authorised by you or are required by law to do so. In addition, such personally identifiable information shall not be disclosed to third parties unless we have informed you, been authorised by you or are required by law to do so.

The term 'third parties' does not include any subsidiaries or affiliates of Heineken, service providers or vendors acting on Heineken's behalf or travel agents or the purchaser of substantially all of the assets of Heineken or a subsidiary or affiliate of Heineken. Our policy is to require that third parties keep that information confidential.
