Policy & Privacy Statements

Adult Audience

This Web site is intended only for use by adults. Reynolds American Inc. (RAI) believes that youth should not smoke. RAI takes no actions to encourage youth smoking, and supports programs designed to discourage and reduce youth smoking. In addition, RAI's correspondence policies are designed to limit its business communications to adults only. We take these issues and responsibilities very seriously. Linking to this site from any site is expressly prohibited without permission.

RAI Correspondence Policies

We are glad to hear from shareholders and other adults with an interest in our businesses. Please note the following corporate policies, which are designed to avoid misdirected inquiries, and to protect the interests of those who might contact us as well as the interests of the company and its affiliates.

Unsolicited Ideas

Although RAI appreciates people's interest in its business, it is our policy to decline consideration of unsolicited ideas and suggestions offered or submitted by the general public. RAI relies on its staff for the generation and implementation of new concepts. This is necessary in order to avoid misunderstandings over the origin of particular ideas. RAI does not accept unsolicited ideas for consideration, and asks you not to submit ideas.

Student Requests

Reynolds American Inc. has a longstanding corporate policy of not sending information on its business to students, as part of our commitment to directing brand-related communications to adult audiences and avoiding a tobacco-marketing presence in classrooms. RAI does not reply to any requests from students, unless they are seeking information on youth non-smoking programs. Anyone interested in RJR Tobacco's youth non-smoking programs should visit RJR Tobacco's separate "Right Decisions, Right Now" Web site: www.rightdecisionsrightnow.com.
