Data protection

We are delighted that you are visiting our website, and about your interest in our company and our products. We are very stringent about the protection of your personal data because the protection of your private sphere is a very important aspect for us when processing personal data. Nordzucker processes the personal data collected when our website is visited in accordance with the data protection regulations of the country that is home to the competent authority for data processing. The Nordzucker web pages may contain links to web pages from other providers not covered by this data protection declaration.


Collection and processing of personal data

When you visit our web pages, our web servers store as part of a standard procedure the IP address assigned to you by your internet service provider, as well as the web page from which you visited us, the web pages that you visit on our website, the type of browser that you use, as well as the date and duration of the visit. Personal data is only saved when you give us the details yourself, e.g as part of the registration process, or sending in an application, or answering a survey. The aforementioned data is saved for a maximum period of 52 weeks.


Use and transfer of personal data, and appropriation

Nordzucker uses your personal data for web page technical administration processes, for customer manage-ment, for product surveys, and for marketing, but only to the extent required in each case. Personal data is only transferred to government agencies and authorities pursuant to mandatory national regulations. The actions of our employees are all governed by confidentiality agreements. Pursuant to data protection regulations, the forwarding of personal data is therefore only undertaken for defined purposes as part of the transaction of orders to positions that e.g. operate our servers or provide specific services. These positions are located in Germany and in other EU countries, and are obliged by Nordzucker to treat all personal data with the strictest confidence in line with data protection regulations, on the basis of contractual obligations and data protection instructions.


Application-related data

The answers and information you provide as part of an online application are stored for up to three months along with your name when the application process has been completed. Any ongoing recruitment procedures extend the storage deadline until they are completed.


Applications for advertised vacancies (direct applications)

If you have made an application in response to a specific job vacancy, the relevant company department and the Human Resources department have access to your data.


Applications for non-specific positions (pro-active applications)

If you have sent Nordzucker a pro-active application that does not refer to a a specific job vacancy, Nordzucker will send your data to the Group Human Resources department to check whether there are any job vacancies which match your qualifications.
