    Danone Privacy Statement 


    Danone knows that you care how your personal data is used and we recognize the importance of protecting your privacy. 

    This Privacy Statement explains how Danone S.A. and all its subsidiaries (“Danone”) acting as the Data Controller collect and manage the personal data on the Danone Nations Club Platform (“Platform”) in the context of the Danone Nations Club (“the Club”). It contains information on which data we collect, how we use it, why we need it and how it can benefit the Participants or their Legal Guardians. 

    In this Privacy Statement, “Participant” shall mean any minor between 10 to 15 years old participating in the Club and “Legal Guardians” shall mean the legal guardians of the Participants. The terms “You” and “Your” shall refer to the Participants and/or the Legal Guardians where applicable. 

    If you want to know more about DANONE S.A and its subsidiaries (“DANONE”), please visit www.danone.com/


    The Club is dedicated to minors from 10 to 15 years old and Danone therefore pays particular attention to the processing of their personal data. 

    For this reason, the Legal Guardians are asked to accept this Privacy Statement. Without this acceptation, Participants won’t be able to create a User Account and consequently to participate in the Club.

    How we protect your personal data

    We understand that the security of your personal data is important. We make our best efforts to protect your personal data from misuse, interference, loss, unauthorized access, modification or disclosure. We have implemented a number of security measures to help protect your personal data and we asked our processors to implement equivalent security measures. For example, we implement access controls, use firewalls and secure servers, and we encrypt personal data. Please note however that where you are transmitting information to us over the internet this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

    Sharing of your personal data

    When we share your personal data with our affiliates, other organizations or trusted third parties, we make sure we only do so with organizations that safeguard and protect your personal data and comply with applicable privacy laws in the same or similar way that we do. 

    Trusted third parties may assist us in providing IT services, such as platform providers, hosting services, maintenance and support on our databases as well as on our software and applications that may contain data about you or to perform on our behalf the statistical analyses associated with the use of the career website.

    Depending on your participation on different activities or contests, some of your personal data may be shared with our partners if needed to redeem the prize (i.e., your name and clothing and shoe size), or your image to be shared in our partners platforms or social networks.

    Your personal data will not be shared, sold, rented or disclosed other than as described in this Privacy Statement. We may, however, share your data when required by law and/or government authorities.  

    Sharing data internationally

    Our servers are located within the European union and we do not transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area. 

    However, if Danone were to transfer your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) or outside your country of residence if you are located outside of the EEA, it would take appropriate measures to ensure that your personal data is adequately protected in the destination country. In this case, we put in place contractual measures and controls regarding technical and organizational measures in accordance with the regulations to ensure that personal data is processed with the same level of security as required by the European regulations.

    Therefore, you agree and accept that if you provide us with your personal data, you consent on the transfer of your personal data as described herein.  

    Personal Data retention period

    We will only retain your personal data for the time necessary to achieve the purposes for which we collected it, including to comply with any legal or accounting requirement.

    To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we take into account the quantity, nature and sensitivity of personal data, the potential risk of harm resulting from the unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and the possibility of attaining those purposes by other means, as well as the applicable legal requirements.

    After the established deadlines, the data is either deleted or retained after being anonymized, especially for statistical purposes. It may be retained in case of pre-litigation and litigation. It should be noted that deletion or anonymization are irreversible operations, and that Danone is no longer able, thereafter, to restore this data.

    Cookies and other technologies

    We may also collect personal data about you through the use of cookies and other technologies. This may occur when you visit our sites or third-party sites, view our online promotions, or use our/third-party mobile applications and may include the following information:
