We collect the information you knowingly provide to us, for example, when you submit an application for employment with us, fill in forms on our websites (collectively ‘Sites’), communicate with us via email addresses specified on our Sites, or when you contact us about our products or services. Such information may include your personal information. Personal information is any information by which you may be personally identified, such as your name, postal address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, Social Security Number, employment, financial or health information and any other information defined as personal or personally identifiable information under an applicable law.
- Information Automatically Collected Through Technologies.
We may use automated technology to collect information from your computer system or mobile device when you visit our facilities or use our Sites. Such information may include your operating system or browser type, screen resolution, language, city and country to create reports for system administration. We do not receive personally identifiable information from the use of automated technology.
Automated technology may include cookies, web beacons and similar tracking technologies. A “cookie” is a small text file that is placed onto an Internet user’s web browser or device and is used to remember and/or obtain information about the user. A “web beacon” is a small object or image that is embedded into a web page, application, or email and is used to track activity. They are also sometimes referred to as pixels and tags.
- Information from Other Sources.
We may collect information about you from other companies and organizations. For example, we may need to obtain personal information about you from third parties in order to process your job applications. We may also collect information that is publicly available. For example, we may collect information about you when you interact with us through social media.

- Communicate with you regarding your orders, purchases, accounts, employment applications or promotions entries;

- Operate and improve our Sites, products, and services;
- Protect against, identify and prevent fraud and other crime, claims and other liabilities;

- Any other purpose you have authorized.
- Third Party Vendors. We may share your information with vendors who provide services to us, such as fulfilling orders, providing data processing and other information technology services, auditing, compliance, and corporate governance functions.
- Business Reorganization or Sale. We may, for strategic or other business reasons, decide to sell or transfer all or a portion of our business. As part of that sale or transfer, we may pass information we have collected and stored, including customer information, to anyone involved in the sale or transfer.
- We may share your information for any other purposes with your consent.
We may also share aggregated or anonymized information in a form that does not directly identify you.
Except as provided herein, OSI does not sell, transfer or otherwise share your personal information with other third parties.
Our Sites are not intended for children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect information from children under 13. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact our compliance representative listed below and we will use reasonable efforts to promptly delete the child’s information from our records.
We do not share personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes. You are in control of any personal information you provide to us. If at any time, you would like to access, correct or delete your personal information in our records, you may do so by contacting our compliance representative listed below. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.
Notice to California residents under 18 years of age
If you are a registered user of online services under the age of 18, and we have actual knowledge of your age, then under California law you may request and obtain removal of certain content or information you have posted on our online services. To do so, please contact us at the address, phone number or email address below. Please note that removal does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of the content. For example, removal may not be possible or permitted if another provision of law requires the content to be maintained, if it was posted or reposted by others, or if we paid compensation to you in exchange for the posting.
OSI will retain your personal Information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which it was collected and to comply with applicable laws and your consent to such purpose remains valid after termination of our relationship with you.
We are committed to taking appropriate measures designed to keep your personal information secure. While we will take reasonable steps to safeguard your personal information against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized loss, access, use, alteration, disclosure or destruction, no website, mobile application, computer system, or transmission of information over the internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.
We urge you to be careful online. This includes not sharing your user names and passwords. Any transmission of personal information by you through such mediums is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on those mediums.
OSI is a global company. To make international communication possible, your personal data may be transferred to or accessed by entities around the world. OSI complies with laws on the transfer of personal data between countries to help ensure your data is protected, wherever it may be.
The OSI entity that controls your personal data may differ depending on where you live. For example, personal data from European OSI employees may be controlled by various OSI entities as reflected on their websites. If you do not reside in the U.S., your personal data may be processed by OSI Group, LLC on behalf of the OSI entity controlling personal data for your jurisdiction.
Personal data relating to individuals in the European Union, European Economic Area, the United Kingdom, and Switzerland may be controlled by OSI International Holding GmbH or OSI Foods GmbH & Co.
