Responsibility for all The Absolut Company websites
The Absolut Company AB and all companies within the Pernod Ricard group have a longstanding tradition of promoting responsible drinking. Responsibility is of a particular importance given the sensitive products we deal with. Our products are for most people associated with pleasure, enjoyment and socializing, but can have quite the opposite effect when not handled responsibly. Thus, all our marketing activities are conducted with care for the consumer. As a company we also have a responsibility for how we act in relation to the world around us and the society we live in. We strive to always act in a way that shows that we deserve the confidence and appreciation of our stakeholders, no matter who or where they are.
Through a broad spectrum of initiatives, often in partnership with outside organizations, including industry associations, regulators, public authorities and representatives, we as well as our affiliates are deeply committed to promoting responsible drinking and discouraging misuse of our products.
As a consequence of our commitment to promoting responsible drinking, we hope you understand that we expect that users will not post any comments, photos, videos and other types of content (“Post”) which:
