EMEA Personal Data Policy

EMEA Personal Data Policy for SAKATA VEGETABLES EUROPE Website.



At SAKATA EMEA, we ensure that we gather, store and handle data fairly, transparently and with respect towards individual rights. European Sakata Holdings , domaine de Sablas, rue du moulin, 30620 Uchaud, france (hereinafter referred to as “SAKATA EMEA”) is committed to doing business based on honesty, integrity and fairness in all aspects of its activities. More precisely, the respect of data privacy of all our internal and external stakeholders (including our customers, suppliers, employees and partners) is a key driver of our internal policies. Sakata therefore commits to international standards of good practice in collecting, storing and processing individual personal data.



Sakata EMEA & Personal Data In General: SAKATA EMEA has adopted a pure B2B business model within the European Union since its creation in 1996 and is therefore not doing any direct business with individuals as such. As a rule, Sakata does not do any specific direct marketing campaigns. Those specific marketing campaigns and all our events are exclusively managed on external tools such as Mailchimp or direct social media channels where customers and prospects directly subscribe (opt in / consent automatically managed online by the tool supplier).
As we are not dealing with the consumer market in the EU, we do not track or exchange any personal data relating to any end consumer.
