At Ingredion Incorporated (“Ingredion”) we are committed to protecting the privacy of every user. What information does Ingredion collect, store and use? Ingredion.us and other Ingredion group sites collect, store and use personal data on our secure servers. We do this by either requesting the information directly from you or automatically receiving it from your browser.
Requesting information directly from you lets you use all of the functions. This information may include your personal data (email address).
Automatically receiving and recording information from your browser helps us analyze and provide better services to you, our client. This information includes (but is not limited to) browser type and version, IP address and cookie information that Ingredion gives to your browser.
Although many features of this website are available to anonymous users, some areas require registration prior to accessing content. By registering, users take advantage of various personalized features, such as the ability to invoke unique functions and content based on their identity. During registration, users supply information required to enable transactions, including (but not limited to) user name, password, address, email address and country.
While you are on our site, members of the Ingredion group are the only entities collecting your information. It is our policy not to sell, share or otherwise disclose any of your personal information to any third party. We will not make your email address available to other parties. An exception to this policy is if the business that uses the information is sold, the data would be sold with the business.
Who can access this data?
We have in place appropriate technical and organizational measures to guard against unauthorized access to your personal information.
It is our policy to ensure we have appropriate security measures in place in relation to your information.
Use of the information:
Ingredion uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our site, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the site or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users. We might also occasionally send you material about new services. If that were to be the case, you would have the explicit option to indicate that you prefer not to receive any emails from Ingredion in the future.
We use tracking information to determine which areas of our site are most (and least) popular based on traffic to those areas. Ingredion does not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for our users.
It is our policy to use personal information for three general purposes only: to customize the advertising and content you see; to fulfill your requests for products and services; and to contact you with news, for example, about new services and products.
Choice and consent:
It is our intent to inform you before we collect personal information from you and to tell you what we intend to do with the information. You will have the option not to provide the information, and in the future you will be able to “opt out” of certain uses of the information. When receiving materials about new products or services, the user will be given the option to opt out of receiving further information at any time. If you choose not to provide the information we request, you can still visit most of the website of the Ingredion group member, but you may be unable to access certain options, offers and services.
You can ask us to remove your personal Information from our database so you will not receive future communications. It is our policy to respect the purpose for which our site visitors give us information. We give users options wherever necessary and practical and remove names as soon as practicable on request.
