Collection and Use of Information
Sensient may collect information, 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-Personal 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 Personal 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 to which you consent. Sensient will not sell any Personal Information about you to anyone, and will not transfer any Personal Information outside of other Sensient companies.
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 Personal 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.

If you wish to assert any of these rights, please contact us.
Whether subject to GDPR or not, if you wish to access Personal Information about you in our records, please contact us. You may also request that we update Personal Information about you, or request corrections of any factual errors that you believe may exist regarding this information. California residents may request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to contact us.
To prevent unauthorized access, we have put in place procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur, we try to prevent such unfortunate occurrences. In the event that a breach of our security systems occurs, and your Personal Information is either obtained by an unauthorized third party or there is a possibility that this may have happened, Sensient will notify you of our security system breach if required by law.
If you have requested samples or other information from us on the website, and you provided consent, you may also receive commercial email regarding upcoming Sensient promotions and events. If you receive Sensient’s commercial email and would like to avoid receiving such email in the future, you may revoke that consent and opt-out of receiving it by clicking on the opt-out area within that email or by clicking here: contact us. Sensient will only communicate with you according to your instructions.
