policy & privacy statements

R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company (RJRT) believes that youth should not use tobacco products. RJRT takes no actions to encourage youth tobacco use, and supports programs designed to discourage and reduce youth tobacco use. In addition, RJRT’s correspondence policies are designed to limit its business communications to adults only. We take these issues and responsibilities very seriously.

Student Requests

RJRT 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. RJRT does not reply to any requests from students, unless they are seeking information on youth tobacco prevention programs.
