This site uses cookies. A cookie is a small file of information that is stored on your device (e.g. computer, tablet, smartphone or smartwatch) when you visit our website.


Most internet browsers are set to accept cookies automatically, but you can change your browser settings to refuse all cookies or to let you know when a cookie is sent.

Which cookies do we use on our website?


Persistent cookies
The use of persistent (functional) cookies enables us to ensure that you don't need to repeat certain actions. They allow us to remember your preferences from a previous visit to our website. This saves you time and makes the website easier to use. You can delete persistent cookies using your browser preferences.


Session cookies
We activate session cookies during your visit to our site and they are automatically deleted as soon as you close the browser. Session cookies enable us to remember which parts of the site you have viewed during a visit and to tailor our services accordingly.


Google Analytics cookies
Google places cookies via our website as part of their Analytics service. We use this service to track visitor behaviour and to obtain reports on how visitors use our website. We can then use this information to improve our site. The purpose is thus not to retain personal data, but to keep track of your actions on the website.

Google stores this information and uses it for reporting purposes. Google’s privacy policy can be viewed at

Google also participates in the Privacy Shield Framework, which enables compliance with data security guidelines between Europe, Switzerland and the United States.


Social media cookies
Our website contains buttons you can use to share our messages or web pages on social media. These enable you to 'like' things via Facebook or YouTube, or send a tweet using Twitter. These buttons work using small pieces of code that come from the social media platforms themselves. Cookies are placed via this code. We play no role in this. In their own Privacy Statements, the social media platforms state what they do with your data via the cookies.


Our own tracking cookies
We request a tracking cookie as soon as you visit our website. The resulting profile is not linked to your name, address, email address, etc.; it is only used to match advertisements to your profile to ensure that they are as relevant to you as possible. These cookies are only placed with your permission. 

What personal data do we process?

Personal data refers to all information by which a natural person is identifiable or can be identified. A person is identifiable if that person's identity can reasonably be determined, directly or indirectly, without disproportionate effort. Directly identifying details include, for example, name, address and date of birth. Data that does not lead directly to an individual, but does do so with the help of other data, also comes under the definition of personal data. This might include an IP address, for example.


Business contacts
We process the personal data of employees of clients, growers, suppliers, distributors, consultants, and any other body with which we have a business relationship. The personal information about you that we might process includes:

  • basic information such as your job title or your first name, last name and initials;
  • contact details such as postal/residential address, telephone numbers or e-mail address;
  • financial information, such as your bank account number;
  • technical data, such as your IP address, the device on which you visit our website and the pages you view.


Contact form
If you fill in a contact form or want to make an appointment with us, we ask you to provide (as required fields) your first name, last name and your e-mail address. Depending on how you would like us to contact you, you will also have the opportunity to provide additional contact details (telephone number, address and postcode).


You can sign up for our newsletter via our website. To do so, we only ask you to give your first and last names and your e-mail address (required fields). At the bottom of each newsletter there is a link that you can use to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time.


You can use our website to post a response or a review. In order to do so, we ask you for your name and e-mail address; your e-mail address will only be used to send you a response, if one is required.


Job applications
You can send us a job application, whether speculative or for a specific vacancy, via our website and in other ways. When this occurs, we process the following personal data:

  • surname, first name and initials;
  • address/postcode;
  • e-mail address;
  • phone number;
  • sex;
  • date of birth;
  • curriculum vitae (CV);
  • employment history.

This information is relevant for the completion of the application process and will be deleted no later than four weeks after the end of the application process, if you are not employed by us. With your express permission, Barenbrug may store your personal data longer for a longer period of time so that you can be considered for future vacancies.


We ask your permission before placing tracking cookies. If you do not want us to place these cookies on your computer, telephone or tablet, you can adjust your browser preferences. You can also delete cookies that have already been placed and can withdraw your consent to the placing of cookies. If you refuse cookies, we cannot guarantee that our website will function properly.


If you have questions and/or comments about this cookie statement, you can let us know using the contact form. Barenbrug aims to respond to all questions/comments within four weeks.
