In general, you can visit Adama on the World Wide Web without revealing who you are or any information about yourself. Our web servers collect only the domain names (IP address), not the e-mail addresses of visitors.

This information is used first and foremost to allow our system to redirect you to your local Adama website, created in your local language for your local market. It is also aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. Adama uses this information to measure the use of our site and to improve the content of our site. 

There are times, however, when we may need information from you, such as your name and address. When information is needed, we will let you know at the time of collection how we will use this information. Usually the personal information we collect is used only by us to respond to your inquiry, process an order or allow you to access specific account information.

You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. You can also disable cookies if you wish, although this may prevent us from identifying you when you return to our sites. 

At times we conduct online surveys to gain a better understanding of the needs and profile of our visitors. When we conduct a survey, we will let you know how we will use the information at the time we collect information from you on the Internet.
