      b) Compliance with legal obligations: our use of your personal data is necessary for complying with our legal obligations.
      c) Legitimate Interests: our use of your personal data is necessary for our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of others. Our legitimate interests might include the following:

      As described above, we may use your personal data to send you communications that may be of interest to you and/or information about our products or services, including updates, exclusive offers, promotions or new services or products.
      Where legally required or where it is appropriate, we will ask for your consent to process your personal data for promotional or marketing-related purposes. We usually do this via an untick-box(es) located at our data collection points (e.g on registration or sign up pages) or via our customer service representatives by answering the question(s) posed to you.

      Where you chose to opt out of receiving these marketing-related communications, please note that, this will not apply to personal data provided to us as a result of a product/service purchase, product/service experience or other transactions where you may still receive service-related communications from us, such as an order update or notifications about your account (e.g. account confirmations, password changes, etc.), and other important non-marketing related communications.

      We may analyse information about you in order to create profiles (e.g. by compiling individuals into groups that we believe to have certain common characteristics) for online advertising or retargeting purposes.

Please contact us for further information on this type of processing.

      For some services and products, we may process your personal data using automated means such as using a chatbot. Essentially this means that decisions are taken automatically without human intervention. We will not make decisions based solely on automated decision making to the extent that they have a legal effect or significant impact on you without first notifying you and providing you with clear information about any such automated decision-making, including our lawful basis for carrying it out and the ability to have a human intervention for reviewing the decision.

      If our websites are ever intended for young audiences, we will in all cases respect our external commitments on responsible marketing, and we will ensure that before we collect personal data, consent is validly obtained from the parent(s) or legal guardian(s) to the extent that this is required by applicable laws and regulations (the age at which this is necessary varies from country to country).

      If we discover that we have collected personal data from a child without consent from a parent or legal guardian where such consent should have been obtained, we will delete that personal data as soon as practical.

      When we share your personal data with Danone affiliates and other organizations, we make sure we only do so with organizations that safeguard and protect your personal data and comply with applicable privacy laws in the same or similar way that we do.

      1. Social media platforms: When our web pages use social plug-ins from these businesses (such as the “Like" and "Share" buttons). These other businesses may receive and use personal data about your visit to our sites or apps. If you browse our website or view content on our apps, personal data they collect may be connected to your account on their site. For more information on how these businesses use personal data, please read their privacy policies.
      2. Business transfer recipients: Where we sell or buy any business or assets, (such as a merger/absorption), to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets, or where substantially all of our or any of our affiliates' assets are acquired by a third party, in which case personal data held by us will be one of the transferred assets. Where appropriate, in such case, the buyer acting as the new data controller processes your data and its privacy statement governs the processing of your personal data.
      3. Law enforcement agencies and regulatory bodies: Where we are obliged by law to disclose your personal data (e.g. to government or law enforcement bodies) or where disclosure is required to protect our rights or those of our staff, customers or other third parties.

      Save as expressly detailed above, we will never share, sell or rent any of your personal data to any third party without notifying you and, where necessary, obtaining your consent. Further details about our third parties are available on request.

      Your personal data may be used, stored and/or accessed by Danone staff operating outside the EEA or the UK working for us, other members of our group or trusted third parties.
      Depending on the processing activity such as creating lookalike audiences or registering you for an event via Eventbrite Inc. your personal data may be transferred to for example the United States.

      1. If we provide any personal data about you to any such non-EEA and non-UK members of our group or trusted third-parties, we will take appropriate measures to ensure that the recipient protects your personal data adequately, such as:ensuring that there is an adequacy decision by the European Commission in the case of transfers out of the EEA or by the UK Secretary of State in the case of transfers out of the UK;
      2. having in place standard contractual clauses with the recipient which have been approved by the European Commission (or the UK Secretary of State for transfers out of the UK);
      3. any other safeguarding mechanism permitted by law.

      Further details about our international transfers are available on request.

      We understand that the security of your personal data is important. We make our best efforts to protect your personal data from being accidentally lost or used or accessed unlawfully. We have implemented a number of security measures to help protect your personal data, and we require that trusted third parties who handle your personal data for us do the same. For example, we implement access controls, use firewalls and secure servers, and we encrypt personal data.

      In the course of providing your personal data to us, your personal data may be transferred over the internet.  Although we make every effort to protect the personal data which you provide to us, the transmission of information over the internet is not completely secure. As such, you acknowledge and accept that we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted to our website and that any such transmission is at your own risk. Then, once we have received your personal data, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorized access to it.
      Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access your online account, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.

      We keep your personal data for no longer than necessary for the purposes for which the personal data is processed.  The length of time for which we retain personal data depends on the purposes for which we collect and use it, for the duration of your contractual relation with us and/or as required to comply with applicable laws and regulations as well as to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.
      For example, where you make a purchase online with us or register for a webinar, we will keep the personal data related to your purchase or registration, so we can perform the specific contract you have entered. After that, we will keep the personal data for a period which enables us to handle or respond to any complaints, queries or concerns relating to the purchase or registration.
      After the established deadlines, the data is either deleted or retained after being anonymized, especially for statistical purposes. It should be noted that deletion or anonymization are irreversible operations, and that Danone is no longer able, thereafter, to restore this data. Further details about retention periods are available on request.

      Where we process your personal data, you are entitled to a number of rights established in the relevant applicable laws and can exercise these rights at any point. We have provided an overview of these rights below together with what this entails for you. You can exercise your rights by contacting us here.
      We will consider all such requests and, in accordance with the applicable laws, will provide our response within a reasonable period, or within the period prescribed by law. Please note, however, that we may rely on certain exemptions to complying with your requests in certain circumstances, for example if we need to keep using the information to comply with our own legal obligations or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.  If an exemption applies, we will tell you this when responding to your request.

      We may request you provide us with information necessary to confirm your identity before responding to any request you make.

      The right to be informed

      You have the right to obtain clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your personal data, and your rights. This is why we are providing you with the information in this Privacy Statement.

      The right to access your personal data and correction

      You have the right to access the personal data we hold about you, as well as correct, update or complete it at any time.

      The right to deletion of your personal data

      You have right to request that we delete your personal data. However, this is not an absolute right, and we may have legitimate, legal and regulatory reasons to retain your personal data.

      The right to object

      Under certain circumstances, you have the right to object to certain types of processing based on grounds relating to your particular situation when such processing is based on our or another's legitimate interest. If you exercise this right, we will stop using your personal data for this purpose and add you to a suppression list, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds to continue processing your personal data that would outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms. You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing activities (for example, by clicking on the unsubscribe link in our emails or by contacting us directly via DPO.UKIE@danone.com). 

      The right to withdraw consent

      Where we rely on your consent to process personal data, you have the right to withdraw consent at any time, without affecting our processing of your personal data before you withdrew consent.

      The right to restriction of processing

      Under certain circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data if:

      1. you do not believe the personal data we have about you is accurate; or
      2. you consider that the personal data is not being processed lawfully, but instead of deleting the personal data, you would prefer us to restrict processing instead; or
      3. we no longer need your personal data for the purposes we collected it, but you require the data in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or
      4. you have objected to the processing of your personal data and are awaiting verification on whether your interests related to that objection outweigh the legitimate grounds for processing your data.

      The right to data portability

      Your personal data is portable. This means it can be moved, copied or transmitted electronically. However, this right only applies to personal data you have provided to us and where the processing: (i) is based on your consent or takes place for the performance of a contract; and (ii) it takes place by automated means.

      The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

      If you think that we have not met the data protection or privacy requirements, you have the right to make a complaint to the data protection authority in the country where you usually live or work, or where an alleged infringement of applicable data protection laws has taken place.
