If providing the personal data is mandatory, the relevant field will be marked by a star (*). If you decide not to provide the personal data in question, you may not be able to use the function. For instance, you must provide your contact information in order for us to reply to a request from you.

We may, from time to time, operate an ethics and compliance hotline to allow both employees and third parties to raise any concerns they might have in relation to our operations that employees and third parties cannot or do not feel able to raise in other ways. We have appointed an independent third party provider to operate the ethics and compliance hotline to allow for an element of confidentiality. However, you will appreciate that in order to investigate and deal with certain reported matters, it may be necessary for the information you provide to the ethics and compliance hotline (which may include personal data) to be shared with us, or our group companies. We will use any data for purposes of investigating the matter to which it relates.

The processing of your personal data will often be necessary to comply with your request or to perform our services. PPL will only use your personal data for marketing activities if you have given a prior and explicit consent to such use.

3. DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

In certain circumstances and according to legislation it may be necessary to disclose data to public or government authorities. We may also disclose your personal data in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights or where we are required to enforce our Website Terms and Conditions. Furthermore, your personal data may be disclosed to our ultimate parent company Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation and its majority shareholder JBS USA.

In the event of re-organisation or total or partial sale of the business, disclosure, if any, will take place in accordance with the applicable law governing such processing of personal data.

In order for us to give you quality experiences when using our website and to keep our website maintained, we work with third party service providers such as analytics and search engine providers who may assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site. We also work with service providers who provide hosting services and IT support and system administration services.

We may also share your information i) as required by law or to comply with any legal obligation, or ii) with third parties directly involved in responding to any request or enquiry, or iii) with our online recruitment agency responsible for processing job applications, or (iv) with our PR agency for responding to nay media enquiries, or (v) with our professional advisers (including but not limited to legal advisers or insurers). We make sure that your personal information is looked after as if we were handling it directly. We carefully select any third party service providers and only share with them what they need to do the work and we make sure they keep your information secure.

We may provide aggregate statistics about sales, customer traffic patterns and information to third parties but will not include any information which identifies you.

4. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

If your personal data is transferred to data controllers or data processors located in countries outside the EU/EEA, including group entities, not ensuring an adequate level of data protection, such transfer will be safeguarded by either the EU Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, other approved adequate safeguards, or any approved derogations under applicable data protection legislation. Otherwise, you will be asked to provide your explicit consent to the transfer.

5. RETENTION

PPL will delete your personal data when we no longer need your personal data in order to fulfil the above purposes. However, we may process your personal data for longer in an anonymised form or if we are obliged or entitled to do so pursuant to any applicable law.

6. SECURITY

We have implemented appropriate technical and organisational security measures to ensure an adequate security level. We may sometimes ask you for proof of identity or for other personal information before we can process your enquiry further. We require that trusted third parties who process your personal information do the same. Accordingly, we use our best efforts to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of your personal data, however, the internet is global and no data transmitted via the internet can be guaranteed by us to be completely secure during transmission. We cannot guarantee the security of any data that you disclose online and we will not be responsible for any breach of security unless this is due to our negligence or wilful default.

PRIVACY NOTICE FOR SUPPLIERS/CUSTOMERS AND BUSINESS PARTNERS

During the course of your business relationship with Pilgrim’s Pride Ltd. (Company number: 608077) (“PPL”), we will process your personal data in accordance with this privacy notice. We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. PPL is the data controller in relation to the personal data which is collected and processed in connection with our business relationship.

This privacy notice sets out the basis on which any personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us will be processed by us. Please read this carefully to ensure you understand our processes regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.

1. COLLECTION OF PERSONAL DATA

Personal data, or personal information, means any information from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity of the person has been removed (anonymous data).

We will collect and process the following personal data about you:

• Contact information (name, email address, telephone number, job title, organisation details, address)
• Delivery address and invoice address
• Bank account details

We do not collect any special categories of personal data about you (this includes details about your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions, trade union membership, information about your health, genetic and biometric data). We do not collect any information from you about criminal convictions or offences.

We may, from time to time, operate an ethics and compliance hotline to allow both employees and third parties to raise any concerns they might have in relation to our operations that employees and third parties cannot or do not feel able to raise in other ways. We have appointed an independent third party provider to operate the ethics and compliance hotline to allow for an element of confidentiality. However, you will appreciate that in order to investigate and deal with certain reported matters, it may be necessary for the information you provide to the ethics and compliance hotline (which may include personal data) to be shared with us, or our group companies. We will use any data for purposes of investigating the matter to which it relates.

2. PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA

We process the information, including personal data, which we receive in connection with our business relationship for the following purposes:

  • to register you as a new customer;
  • to register you as a new supplier or business partner;
  • to enable us to procure goods and services from our suppliers;
  • to provide goods and services to our customers;
    where applicable, to arrange payment for both goods and services provided and received;
  • to give suppliers’ details to retail customers (and third parties dealing with traceability) for the purposes of maintaining supply chain visibility and ensuring the provenance and traceability of food products and compliance with laws;
  • to carry out credit checks (if you are a customer). We will supply your personal information to Credit Reference Agencies (CRAs) and they will give us information about you, such as your financial history and we do this to assess your suitability, check your identity, manage your account, trace and recover debts and prevent criminal activity. We will also continue to exchange information about you with CRAs on an ongoing basis, including about your settled accounts and any debts not fully repaid on time.

The primary basis of our processing of your personal data is for the performance of the contract between you and PPL. We may also process your personal data on the basis of our legitimate interests (e.g. prior to entering an agreement with you or to recover debts due to us) or as is necessary to comply with legal obligations (e.g. supply chain traceability and visibility). Furthermore, in very limited circumstances, your personal data may be processed on the basis of your consent, e.g. if you have consented to the disclosure of your personal data or to other processing of your personal data.

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

We may combine any information we receive from other sources (e.g. credit reference agencies) with information you give us and information we collect about you. We may use this information for the purposes set out above.

The list of reasons and purposes may be ongoing and updated in order to comply with other business needs and/or statutory requirements.

If you fail to provide certain information when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we are trying to enter into with you or have entered into with you, or we may be prevented from complying with our legal obligations.

3. WITH WHOM WILL WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA

Your information may be transferred/disclosed to the following recipients:

  • CRAs;
  • Retail customers;
  • Logistics providers;
  • IT software and service providers;
  • Other business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with you (including any 3rd parties dealing with traceability); and
  • Legal advisors, insurers, auditors, bankers, accountants

Your personal data may be shared with other group companies of Pilgrim’s UK, if relevant. Such group companies may include group companies located in countries outside the EU/EEA not ensuring an adequate level of data protection.

Certain personal data may also be reported to government authorities such as HMRC, where required by law.

We may also disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms and conditions of sale, terms and conditions of purchase, terms of any contract with you and other agreements; or to defend or make any legal claim; or to protect the rights, property or safety of PPL, our customers or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies for the purposes of fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

4. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS

If your personal data is transferred to data controllers or data processors located in countries outside the EU/EEA, including group entities, not ensuring an adequate level of data protection, such transfer will be safeguarded by either the EU Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, other approved adequate safeguards, or any approved derogations under applicable data protection legislation. Otherwise, you will be asked to provide your explicit consent to the transfer.

5. STORAGE OF PERSONAL DATA

As a general rule, your personal data will be kept for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we may consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances, we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

If our business relationship no longer exists, we will store your personal data for seven years after cessation of our relationship.

6. SECURITY

We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

7. YOUR RIGHTS

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal information (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes.
  • Request the restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal information about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to another party.

If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal data, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact data@pilgrimsuk.com

Right to withdraw consent

In the very limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that processing of your personal data at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact data@pilgrimsuk.com

Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your personal data and we will dispose of your personal data securely, unless we are permitted or required by law or regulatory requirements to process your personal data without your knowledge or consent. In such a case, we will not process more personal data than is required under the circumstances.
