We base the above mentioned processing activities of your personal data on the following legal basis:

  • As required by Olam and our affiliates to conduct our business and pursue our legitimate interests, in particular:
    • we will use your information to provide products and services you have, or your company has requested;
    • we monitor use of our websites and online services, and use your information to help us monitor, improve and protect our products, content, services and websites, both online and offline;
    • we use information you provide to personalise our website, products or services for you;

Who will we share this data with?

We may share your personal data with other members of the Olam group, including any affiliates with whom you or the company you represent interact with during the course of business with Olam. Personal data may be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if required for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws. Personal data may also be shared with third party service providers, who will process it on behalf of Olam for the purposes above.

Such third parties include, but are not limited to, providers of website hosting, maintenance, call centre operation, identity checking etc.

In the event that the business is sold or integrated with another business, your details will be disclosed to our advisers and any prospective purchaser’s adviser and will be passed to the new owners of the business.

Where will we send your data?

Where information is transferred outside the EEA, and where this is to an Olam affiliate or vendor in a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission, data is adequately protected by EU Commission approved cross-border safeguards which currently include standard contractual clauses, Privacy Shield registration or approved Binding Corporate Rules.

What rights do you have in relation to your data?

You may be entitled to ask Olam for a copy of your information, to correct it, erase or restrict its processing, or to ask us to assist you to transfer some of this information to other organisations. You may also have rights to object to some processing activities, such as the profiling we may perform for the purposes of direct marketing, and, where we have asked for your consent to process your data, to withdraw this consent. These rights may be limited in some situations – for example, where we have a legal requirement to process your data. If you withdraw your consent to certain processing, we will not process your data any further, but withdrawal of your consent will have no effect on any data we have already processed based on your consent at the time.

Where we require personal data to comply with legal or contractual obligations, then provision of such data is mandatory: if such data is not provided, then we will not be able to manage our contractual relationship, or to meet obligations placed on us.  In all other cases, provision of requested personal data is optional.

We hope that we can satisfy queries you may have about the way we process your data. If you have any concerns about how we process your data, or would like to opt out of marketing, you can get in touch at privacy@olamnet.com

In the event you have unresolved concerns, you also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority.
