You competition that you enter from https://www.promoentries.com/vype-thefratellis-coi/ or the links on our Vype_Worldwide Instagram pages (“Competition“) are only used for the purposes set out in this “Privacy Notice”.

This Privacy Notice tells you what we do with your personal data, and how we comply with the laws that tell us to treat your personal data in a certain way. This Privacy Notice applies to everyone who participates in our Competition (and the Vype Worldwide team at BAT love doing competitions!).

For the purpose of this Privacy Notice, we need to tell you that the relevant legal entity responsible for your any personal data you provide to us (known as a “data controller”) is called Nicoventures Trading Limited (“BAT“, “us” or “we“).

If you need or want to get in touch with us, we have provided general contact details in the “How to Contact Us” section of this Privacy Notice or (to save you scrolling to this section, you can email us at data_privacy@bat.com.

We may change this Privacy Notice from time to time so please check it regularly on the bio of @vype_worldwide (our competition page) or https://www.promoentries.com/vype-thefratellis-coi/


Depending on the circumstances and applicable local laws and requirements, we may collect the information detailed below. You can learn about the reasons why we do this later in this Privacy Notice.

• If you enter our Competition, we will collect your full name, town and country of residence, email address, date of birth, telephone number and your stage name or the name of your band (if applicable) and your relationship to the band or artist if you are applying on their behalf (e.g. as their manager or agent). We will also collect any of your personal data included in the audio files you upload to enter our Competition (including your voice), and the time and date you accept our terms and submit your application to us.

• If you win our Competition, we will also collect your address, the names of other members of your band (if applicable) and any of your personal data that appears in the photographs or music and other videos created as part of your prize.

• If you correspond with us in connection with the Competition, any of your personal data included in your correspondence.

We collect this data from you on a voluntary basis however if you don’t let us collect this data, you may not be able to enter the Competition and we may not be able to continue our relationship with you. For example, this Competition is only open to tobacco and/or nicotine consumers aged 25 or over, or, in the case of bands, those whose members are all aged 25 or over and where at least one member is a tobacco and/or nicotine consumer. Winners of this Competition will be contacted via email, during which we will ask the winner to confirm that they or at least one member of their band (as applicable) are a tobacco and/or nicotine consumer and that they and all members of their band (as applicable) are aged 25 or over. If you do not provide these confirmations, you will not be able to continue to be an entrant to this Competition and we reserve the right to withdraw any applicable prize from you (and, if applicable your other band members) and pick a replacement winner.

Most of the data we hold about you, will be information you provide to us when submitting your entry for the Competition. We may ask our third parties who work with us to assist in our Competition to collect information from you on our behalf e.g. verification checks of proof of age where the prize awarded warrants it such as age restricted prizes. We may also collect data from you if you contact us proactively, usually by email or social media.

There are a few ways the law allows us to process (i.e. use) your personal data. These are explained below.

Where using your data is in our legitimate interests
We can process your personal data where it is in our “legitimate interests” to do so, and those legitimate interests are not outweighed by any potential prejudice to you – some of these are set out below:

o Using your data to help us run of our Competition and award you a prize (if you win);
o To market and advertise BAT products and services to the extent permitted by the law;
o To help us establish, exercise and defend legal claims; and
o For our internal admin purposes.

We don’t think that any of the activities set out in this Privacy Notice will prejudice you in any way. However, you do have the right to object to us and we’ve set out details regarding how you can go about doing this in the ‘You Have Rights!’ section below.

• Where using your data is necessary for us to carry out our legal obligations
When we have legal obligations that we need to comply with, we can use your personal data to comply with those other legal obligations (for example to verify your age).

Where you give us your consent to use your personal data
We can use your data where you have specifically given us permission to do so in certain circumstances. For example, where we wish to use your name and image in our publicity materials.
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. We have set out details regarding how you can go about this in the section ‘You Have Rights!’ below.

Sometimes we will share your information to ensure that we can carry out our Competition in a fair, efficient and transparent manner. We may share your information with any of the following groups:

Any of our BAT entities. Your personal data may be shared with other members of the BAT group, for example, in the country in which you tell us you reside.

Regulatory authorities. We may share your information with authorities when we believe that the law or other regulation requires us to do so (for example, because of a request in connection with any anticipated litigation or in order to help prevent fraud or to enforce or protect the rights and properties of BAT or its subsidiaries).

Third party service providers. We may share your information with third party service providers who perform functions on our behalf (such as PromoVeritas – a company that is assisting us with our Competition, who may further share your personal data with appropriate service providers such as sound engineers, recording studios, PR and marketing service providers and Cooking Vinyl Records, the record label that will release the winner’s music track). We will only share information with such service providers where we have an appropriate data processing agreement (or similar protections) in place.

Professional advisors and auditors. We may disclose your personal data to professional advisors (such as legal advisors and accountants) or auditors for the purpose of providing professional services to us.

Acquisitions. If a BAT entity merges with or is acquired by another business or company in the future, we may share your personal data with the new owners of the business or company.


We care about protecting your information. That is why we put in place appropriate measures that are designed to prevent unauthorised access to, and misuse of, your personal data.

We do this by having in place a range of appropriate technical and organisational measures, including encryption measures and disaster recovery plans.

Unfortunately, please note, when you send us your personal data there is always risk involved in sending information through any channel over the internet, and when you send information over the internet, it is entirely at your own risk.


Your personal data may be sent outside of the UK or European Economic Area or EEA (i.e. the Member States of the European Union from time to time, together with Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) to the types of entities described in the section called ‘Sharing Your Personal Data with Others’ above.

We want to make sure that your personal data is stored and transferred in a way which is secure. We will therefore only transfer data outside of the UK/EEA where it is compliant with data protection laws and the way we transfer it provides adequate safeguards in relation to your data (e.g. using EU Commission approved contracts that we put in place between ourselves and the recipient organisation of your data).


We only keep your personal data for as long as necessary – after which time we destroy it. We will destroy your contact information and other details you submit with your entry within 6 months of the date we collect that information and we destroy your audio files within 6 months of the date you upload those files to us.

Just so you know, we may be required by law to retain your data for a longer period in certain circumstances. This may be because we are subject to a regulatory or other legal obligation in a specific jurisdiction which requires us to keep data for a specified period and we need to comply with those legal/regulatory requirements. If you would like more information regarding our data retention policies and practices, please contact us using the contact details set out at the end of this Privacy Notice.


You have various rights in relation to the data which we hold about you. We have set these out below, only to the extent that they are relevant to the Competition and your participation as an entrant!

Right to object
This right enables you to object to us processing your personal data. If you object, we will stop using your data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds (which overrides your interests) or if our use of your data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to withdraw consent
Where we have obtained your permission to process your personal data for certain activities, you may withdraw this consent at any time. If you ask us to do this, we’ll stop using your data unless we consider that there is an alternative legal reason to justify our continued processing of your data for this purpose, in which case we will tell you.

Right to access your data
You may ask us for a copy of the information we hold about you at any time. We will respond to your request within one month. That period may be extended by two further months where necessary, taking into account the complexity and number of requests. We may request proof of identification to verify your request. If you request further copies of this information from us, we may charge you a reasonable administrative cost. Where we are legally permitted to do so, we may refuse your request. If we refuse your request, we will always tell you the reasons for doing so.

Right to erasure
You have the right to request that we “erase” your personal data in certain circumstances. We would only be entitled to refuse to comply with your request for erasure in limited circumstances and we will always tell you our reason for doing so.

Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data in certain circumstances, for example if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data that we hold about you or you object to our processing of your personal data for our legitimate interests. If we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the restricted processing unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. We will, of course, notify you before lifting any restriction on processing your personal data.

Right to rectification
You have the right to request that we rectify any inaccurate or incomplete personal data that we hold about you. If we have shared this personal data with third parties, we will notify them about the rectification unless this is impossible or involves disproportionate effort. You may also request details of the third parties that we have disclosed the inaccurate or incomplete personal data to. Where we think that it is reasonable for us not to comply with your request, we will explain our reasons for this decision.

Right to complain
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority – for us this is the Information Commissioner’s Office (“ICO”) in the UK. For further details, please visit www.ico.org.uk.

If you have any queries about this Privacy Notice, including your rights in relation to your personal information, please contact our customer services team by direct message on Instagram to @Vype_worldwide or email us at data_privacy@bat.com.
