Information We Collect Automatically. We and our third party business partners, including analytics and advertising partners, may automatically collect information when you use our Website through cookies, pixel tags, clear GIFs, or similar technologies, such as your browser type and operating system, web pages you view, your interactions with content or webpages on the Website, links you click, your IP address or other identifiers, the length of time you visit our Site, the referring URL or webpage that led you to our Website, the information, content, or advertisements you view, hover over, or click on, and the search terms you enter. Our third-party business partners may use these technologies to collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites and services. See also, the Section below on Tools Used on this Website.

Bunge and its third-party business partners, including analytics and advertising partners, collect information about you by using cookies, tracking pixels and other technologies (collectively, “Tools”) when you visit or interact with the Website, including where you direct us to do so through the cookie banner on the Website you are viewing. We use this information to better understand, customize and improve user experience with our websites, services, and offerings as well as to manage our advertising and analytics purposes. For example, we use web analytics services that leverage these Tools to help us to understand how visitors engage with and navigate our Site, e.g., how and when pages in a site are visited and by how many visitors. We are also able to offer our visitors a more customized, relevant experience on our sites using these Tools by delivering content and functionality based on your preferences and interests. If we or our third-party business partners have collected your personal data, e.g., through a registration or a request for certain materials, we may associate this personal data with information gathered through the Tools. This allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality on the Website.

Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is done automatically by many websites, applications, and other services. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels, diagnosing server problems, and administering the Website. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address.

We may use Google and Adobe Analytics, which use cookies and similar technologies to collect and analyze information about use of the Site and report on activities and trends. These services may also collect information regarding the use of other websites, apps and online resources. You can learn about Google’s practices by going to www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ and opt-out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
