ICA Bremen takes your privacy seriously.
At ICA Bremen, we are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
This policy covers what personal information ICA Bremen collects, how that information is collected and why we need it. Personal information is information about you that is personally identifiable like your name, address, email address, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available. This policy does not cover the practices of companies other than ICA Bremen or people who are not employed or managed by ICA Bremen. Third party sites provide the products and services listed on ICA Bremen and these sites have their own privacy statements and are not covered by this policy.
Along with our business and internal computer systems, this website is designed to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2018 (GDPR).
What information we collect and how we use it
This website collects and uses personal information for the following reasons:
This website uses Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to better understand how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.
Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. GA also records your computer’s IP address which could be used to personally identify you but Google do not grant us access to this.
If you choose to join our email newsletter, the email address that you submit to us will be forwarded to MailChimp who provide us with email marketing services. The email address that you submit will not be stored within this website’s own database but it may be stored on our internal computer system as proof of your consent.
Your email address will remain within MailChimp’s database for as long as we continue to use MailChimp’s services for email marketing or until you specifically request removal from the list. You can do this by unsubscribing using the unsubscribe links contained in any email newsletters that we send you or by requesting removal via email. When requesting removal via email, please send your email to us using the email account that is subscribed to the mailing list.
If you are under 16 years of age you MUST obtain parental consent before joining our email newsletter.
While your email address remains within the MailChimp database, you will receive periodic (approximately four times a year) newsletter-style emails from us.
Who has access to your information
ICA Bremen is a joint venture company between the International Cotton Association (ICA) and Bremer Baumwollboerse (BBB), supported by the Bremen Fibre Institute (FIBRE). For this reason, these companies may have access to your personal information when required to conduct business in the name of ICA Bremen.
As a matter of policy ICA Bremen does not sell, rent, share or otherwise distribute any of your personal information to third parties except in certain specific circumstances. Those circumstances are as follows:
What are cookies and why do we use them
Cookies are a standard Internet technology, and many major web sites use them to provide useful features for their members. Cookies allow us to store and retrieve login and other information on a user's system. They provide us with data that we can use to improve our service to you. Cookies themselves do not personally identify users, although they do identify a user's computer. The default setting for most browsers is to accept cookies; if you prefer you can set yours to refuse them. If you choose not to accept cookies you will not be able to take full advantage of ICA Bremen.
Our third party data processors
We use a number of third parties to process personal data on our behalf. These third parties have been carefully chosen and all of them comply with the relevant legislation.
We will report any unlawful data breach of this website’s database or the database(s) of any of our third party data processors to any and all relevant persons and authorities within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.
