YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS
SENSIENT TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION AND AFFILIATES PRIVACY POLICY

Your privacy is important to us, and we are providing this Privacy Policy to explain our policies regarding personal information that may be provided by visitors to our website. The “Personally Identifiable Information” in this policy refers to information or a combination of information that you provide to us through the use of www.sensient.de or other websites of Sensient Technologies Corporation and its affiliates (“Sensient”) that can be used to uniquely identify you.

This Privacy Policy meets the requirements of European Union Directive 95/46/EC on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and the Safe Harbor Principles designed to ensure compliance with such Directive. For more information on the Safe Harbor Principles, please visit the United States Department of Commerce International Trade Administration website at http://www.export.gov/safeharbor/doc_safeharbor_index.asp.

The effective date of this Privacy Policy is December 4, 2009. Sensient reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. Notice of changes to this Privacy Policy will be communicated to you in advance. If Sensient modifies this Privacy Policy, material changes will be conspicuously posted on this website and will be effective immediately upon posting. By accessing this website after changes are posted, you are agreeing to all changes.

Collection and Use of Information
Sensient may collect any content, record, or electronic communication of any kind, as long as we comply with applicable laws. This includes both information that you share with us, as well as other information collected, for example through Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses, web beacons, and the use of “cookies,” which may be placed on your computer when you access the website. (See the “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” Section below). In addition, Sensient may use and share aggregated information that does not uniquely identify you when it enables Sensient to improve and enrich our services and website content.

Sensient may collect Personally Identifiable Information about you (for example, requesting a combination of your name, telephone number, e-mail address, mailing address, or related information) in order to provide you with services, to communicate with you, to send you samples, information and materials, and for other business purposes. Sensient may also disclose and share your Personally Identifiable Information with others. However, Sensient will not sell any Personally Identifiable Information about you to anyone, with one exception: in the event of a merger or restructuring of Sensient, dissolution, or other disposition by Sensient of substantially all of its assets, any Personally Identifiable Information or other information owned by Sensient may be transferred to the other party or parties in such cases, who will comply with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Sensient owns all rights to information collected on this website, and may freely collect, use and disclose such information, unless otherwise prohibited by this Privacy Policy or applicable law.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Your Internet Protocol ("IP") address is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet, like your Internet Service Provider or your company. Sensient may record the referring page that linked you to the Sensient website (e.g., another website or a search engine), the pages you visit on this website, the website you visit after this website, the ads you see or click on, other information about the type of web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using, any search terms you have entered on this website or a referral website, and other web usage activity and data logged by our web servers. Sensient may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, gather broad demographic and geographic information, and administer our website. Sensient may also link this information with your personally identifiable information when Sensient feels that it is necessary to enforce compliance with its rules and policies, terms of service, or to protect its website, customers or others.

Web beacons (sometimes called pixel tags or GIF’s) are Internet tools, such as transparent images on a website or in e-mails that we may send you that help us to determine, for instance, whether a page has been viewed or an e-mail opened. For example, when you ask us to send you information on a sample, promotion or newsletter, we may use web beacons to determine how many of the e-mails we sent were actually opened. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page, including a banner ad, can contain a web beacon. Web beacons are not stored on your computer.

Sensient may use cookies to track the use of our website and to facilitate and enhance your experience on our website. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not capture your email address, transmit viruses or retrieve any other data from your hard drive. Our cookies enable us to facilitate access to different aspects of our website. For example, by showing when and how you and others visit our website, cookies help us to see which pages of the website are popular and which are not. Cookies can also help us to improve your enjoyment of the website, for example, by remembering your address or other personal information when you request information or services on the website. By accessing or using this website, you specifically agree to Sensient placing cookies on your computer’s hard drive. Note that most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can disable this function so that your browser will not accept cookies.
