Cookie Policy

Effective Date: May 23, 2017

Our website uses cookies, as almost all websites do, to help provide you with the best experience we can. For this web site we do not collect personally identifiable information, do not pass visitor data to 3rd party marketing companies and do not participate in "remarketing" or targeted advertising.

What are the Cookies? Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognize your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term "cookies" in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your preferences, analyze how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.

Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to "remember me" when logging in, a cookie will store your username. The cookies used by Syngenta may collect information that identifies you along with more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user's general location.

At Syngenta we do not use cookies for giving information to third party marketing companies or media advertisers.
