Privacy Statement

Solae commits to comply with the Solae Global Information Privacy Statement, this privacy statement and applicable law to protect certain information collected at this Web site. We encourage you to carefully read this privacy statement.

Unless you have "opted out" of receiving direct marketing contacts (as described below), when you provide any of the information described in this Privacy Statement (including information that may be automatically generated), you consent to the use and disclosure of that information as described by this statement.

The following describes how we collect and use information obtained through our Web site.

Automatically Collected Information

We may passively collect information that is automatically sent to us by your Web browser or your internet service provider. This information typically includes your domain name, your user name and your numerical IP address. The amount of information sent by your Web browser depends on its settings. Please refer to your browser if you want to learn what information it sends. We use this type of information to see which Web pages you visit at our Web site, which Web site you visited before coming to our Web site, and where you go after you leave our Web site. We can then develop statistics that help us understand how our visitors use our Web site and how we can improve it.

Cookie Generated Information

We may actively obtain information about you by installing a marker on your computer commonly called a "cookie." Cookies enable us to know you by a computer-generated, unique identifier. By providing you with a unique cookie, we are able to create a database of your previous choices and preferences. In situations where these choices or preferences need to be collected again, they can be supplied by us automatically, saving you time and effort. Your computer may be specially configured to reject cookies; please refer to your browser for more information. Many Solae Web sites will allow you to visit without accepting cookies, but some features of our Web sites may not work properly if you choose to reject cookies.

User Generated Information

We collect information at this Web site when you contact us or respond to surveys, questionnaires or applications we make available. If you e-mail us, you are voluntarily releasing the content of your e-mail to us (including your e-mail address). If you answer questions we have placed on the Web site page, you are also voluntarily releasing that information to us. You may decide not to answer any questions presented to you at our Web sites; if you do, you may still continue your visit, but we may elect not to provide you with services or features related to the questions you choose not to answer.

How Information is Used and Shared

Solae may use any of the information gathered at this Web site in order to provide you with answers to your questions, to analyze your visit on this Web site, for direct marketing and e-mail marketing purposes, to fulfill requests for goods and services and to improve the ways we provide you with information about our company. Your information may also be combined with information you have provided to Solae through other sources such as product registrations, inquiries or marketing events to give us a better understanding of your existing and future needs for our goods and services.

In the course of any of these activities, we may transmit the information we have collected to another country or share it with Solae affiliates or third parties, including contractors, dealers, distributors and retailers. An example of a third party that could receive your personal information is a data processing contractor that operates computer systems on our behalf, such as Computer Sciences Corporation. Whenever personal information is transferred to an affiliate or third party, that party will be contractually bound to abide by our privacy statement and policy.

In addition, we may have collected similar information from you in the past, before our Global Information Privacy Statement and this privacy statement took effect. By using this Web site you agree to the terms of this privacy statement and consent to our continued use of previously collected information under these terms.

Solae may disclose and transfer your information during a merger or during the divestiture of company assets. However, we will require the acquiring organization to agree to protect the privacy of your personal information consistent with this privacy statement and policy.

Consistent with our Global Information Privacy Statement, Solae uses commercially reasonable methods consistent with industry practice to protect personal information, including Social Security numbers ("SSNs"). Among other information security controls, Solae has established controls, consistent with applicable law, designed to: (1) limit access to SSNs; (2) protect the confidentiality of SSNs; and (3) prohibit unlawful disclosure of data containing SSNs.

Direct Marketing

Solae may use all information collected at this Web site for direct marketing purposes including the sharing of the information with Solae affiliates or third parties including contractors, dealers, distributors and retailers, unless you specifically request that it not be used for that purpose.

Links to Other Sites

For your convenience, this page may contain certain hyperlinks to other Solae Web sites as well as to third-party non-Solae sites. While Solae Web sites are subject to this privacy statement, we can make no promises or guarantees regarding data collection on the hyperlinked pages and sites that are not owned by Solae. We, therefore, recommend that you read the privacy statement for each third-party site you visit.

Information Security

Solae uses commercially reasonable methods consistent with industry practice to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy and to ensure appropriate use of your information.

Access to Information

You may request access to the information Solae has gathered about you at this Web site by contacting us.

You should be aware, however, that when you submit your personal information to a Solae Web site, (a) that information may go to a country that has different privacy laws than your home country, and (b) it will be handled in accordance with the laws of the country where the site is located, but not necessarily the law of your country.
