Customer Ratings and Reviews Terms of Use

These Terms of Use govern your conduct and use associated with the Customer Ratings and Review service (the “CRR Service”) offered by British American Tobacco (New Zealand) Limited (“BATNZ”), which should be read in conjunction with BATNZ’s Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy which are expressly incorporated herein. To the extent of any inconsistency between the latter referenced documents and these Terms of Use, these Terms of Use shall prevail to the extent of any inconsistency with respect to the CRR Service.

By submitting any content to BATNZ including the website as part of the CRR Service ("Content") you accept, and agree to abide by, all of these Terms of Use and represent and warrant that:

  • you are the sole author and owner of the intellectual property rights contained therein;
  • all "moral rights" that you may have in such content have been voluntarily waived by you and you do not require that any personally identifying information be used in connection with the Content that you submit, or any derivative works of or upgrades or updates thereto;
  • all Content that you post is relevant and accurate (where it states facts) and genuinely held (where it states opinion);
  • you understand you are participating in a public forum and that your Content will be available to others;
  • you are an adult smoker or vaper and at least 18 years old and agree to these Terms of Use; and
  • use of the Content you supply does not violate these Terms of Use and will not cause any damage, loss or injury to anyone. You further represent and warrant that you shall not submit any Content:
    • that is known by you to be false, inaccurate or misleading;
    • that infringes any third party's copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret or other proprietary rights or rights of publicity or privacy;
    • that violates any law, statute, ordinance or regulation (including, but not limited to, those governing export control, consumer protection, unfair competition, anti-discrimination or false advertising);
    • that is, or may reasonably be considered to be, obscene, defamatory, libelous, hateful, racially or religiously biased, offensive, unlawfully threatening or unlawfully harassing to anyone;
    • for which you were compensated or granted any consideration by any third party;
    • that is likely to harass, upset, embarrass, alarm or annoy any other person;
    • that impersonates any person, or misrepresents your identity or affiliation with any person;
    • that includes any information that references other websites, addresses, email addresses, contact information, phone numbers or other personally identifiable information in respect of any individual; or

  • BATNZ will not accept Content from you unless you are a registered user (with a registered account) of the website.
  • You agree to indemnify and hold BATNZ (and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, employees and third-party service providers), harmless from all claims, demands, costs and damages of every kind and nature, known and unknown including legal fees, arising out of a breach of these Terms of Use, a breach of your representations and warranties set out above, or your violation of any law or the rights of a third party.
  • For any Content that you submit, you grant BATNZ a perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, transferable and sub-licensable right and license to use, copy, modify, delete in its entirety, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from and/or sell and/or distribute such Content and/or incorporate such Content into any form, medium or technology throughout the world without compensation to you or anyone else. This license will survive the termination of these Terms of Use and your use of the BATNZ and / or the website.
  • To the extent permitted by law, BATNZ (and its officers, directors, agents, subsidiaries, joint ventures, employees and third-party service providers) hereby expressly exclude any liability for any direct, indirect or consequential loss or damage incurred by any user in connection with the Content including, without limitation any liability for loss of revenue, loss or interruption of business or loss of data. BATNZ expressly excludes liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any Content submissions or the CRR Service by any person in contravention of these Terms of Use.
  • All Content that you submit is not confidential and may be used by or on behalf of BATNZ, in any manner, form, medium or technology, at BATNZ’s sole discretion.
  • BATNZ may or may not pre-screen Content. However, BATNZ and its designees will have the right (but not the obligation) in their sole discretion to pre-screen, change, condense or delete any Content on and of the BATNZ and / or websites (including, without limitation, the Content) that BATNZ deems, in its sole discretion, to violate its Review Guidelines or any other provision of these Terms of Use, or is otherwise objectionable.
  • BATNZ will try to publish as many Content submissions as possible but it does not guarantee that all Content submissions will be published.

However, BATNZ reserves the right to edit, remove or to refuse to post any submission of the Content or part thereof for any reason. You acknowledge that you, not BATNZ are solely responsible for the contents of the submitted Content (whether edited by BATNZ or not). None of the Content that you submit shall be subject to any obligation of confidence or other restriction on use and publication on the part of BATNZ, its agents, subsidiaries, affiliates, partners or third party service providers and their respective directors, officers and employees and BATNZ and such parties shall have full and unimpeded authority and ability to publish, communicate, use and disseminate the Content as contemplated by these Terms of Use.
  • Although Content may be moderated by BATNZ, it is under no obligation to anyone to oversee, monitor or moderate and it may stop moderating at any time.

  • BATNZ may revise these Terms of Use at any time. You are expected to check this page from time to time to take notice of any changes made, as they are legally binding on you.
  • Any Content submitted to BATNZ as part of the CRR Service may be used and published by BATNZ on the website, or otherwise shared with BATNZ’s affiliates to be used and published by them on their websites.
