Your information will be held by Krone Forage Solutions. More information on our company can be found on our website at

Keeping your data safe

This privacy notice is to let you know how Krone Forage Solutions promise to look after your personal information. This includes what you tell us about yourself, what we learn by having you as a customer, and the choices you give us about what marketing you want us to send you. This notice explains how we do this and tells you about your privacy rights and how the law protects you.

We promise:

• To keep your data safe and private.

• Not to sell your data.

• To give you ways to manage and review your marketing choices at any time.

As well as our Privacy Promise, your privacy is protected by law. This section explains how that works. Data Protection law says that we are allowed to use personal information only if we have a proper reason to do so. This includes sharing it outside Krone Forage Solutions. The law says we must have one or more of these reasons:

• To fulfil a contract we have with you, or

• When it is our legal duty, or

• When it is in our legitimate interest, or

• When you consent to it.

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information. But even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for you. If we rely on our legitimate interest, we will tell you what that is.

1 Who’s in control

1.1 It is important that you understand who is responsible for keeping your data safe. We are the ‘controller’ of all personal data collected which means we are responsible for deciding how and why your data is used. We also ensure that your data is handled legally and safely.

1.2 We have appointed a Data Protection Officer (DPO) who has ultimate responsibility within Krone Forage Solutions for making sure your data is treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy and the law.
