When you visit the Sakura website, certain anonymous information may be passively collected through the use of cookies, Internet tags, or other navigational data collection tools, including log files, server logs, or clickstream. Your internet browser automatically transmits some of this anonymous information to our website, such as the URL of the website you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. You may set your computer to notify you when a cookie is sent, or to refuse cookies, but refusing to accept cookies may not allow certain features of our websites to work properly. Remember, the only personally identifiable information Sakura collects is the information you voluntarily provide.

Purpose of processing personal data

     (1) Contact form

You may give us personal data by filling in forms or by corresponding with us by post, phone, email or otherwise. This includes:

  • your contact details;  
  • the content of your message

We will process your data only in order to handle/process your request/inquiry. The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (our legitimate interest in answering your request). Your request/inquiry will be processed internally, and we will not share your information without your prior consent.  Your personal data will be deleted after final processing of your request or inquiry, provided that no legal storage requirements are in conflict.

      (2) Application process (via )

We process your data that you have sent us as part of your application to check whether your professional qualifications are suitable for the advertised position. This includes:  

  • your contact details;  
  • your motivation letter 
  • your resume; 
  • your photo; 
  • other information you may freely send us (e.g. covering letter). 

We will only process your personal data to (1) decide whether you meet the basic requirements for the role or if you could potentially be employed in the near future, (2) to determine whether you have the legal right to work for us, (3) assess your information and the results of any interview and (4) to communicate with you during the recruitment process. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1)(b) of the GDPR (the performance of a contract). If your application is not successful, your details will be deleted 12 months after the rejection of your application. If your application is successful, your information will be stored in your employment record. 

Your personal data will be processed only by people who are authorised to process your personal data (e.g. the HR department). We may also share your personal data within the Sakura Group. This may also involve transferring your data outside the EU/EEA (e.g. to Sakura Finetek USA). Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EU/EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • the data will be transferred to a country that has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission (e.g. Sakura Finetek UK); 
  • we will use specific contracts approved by the European Commission (so called Standard Contractual Clauses) which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe (e.g. Sakura Finetek US). 

      (3) Contractual obligations

Sakura uses your personal data to fulfil our contractual obligations towards your company and to manage our relationship with you. This may include:  

  • sending quotes, order administration, provision of products and services to your company, invoicing your company, responding to your service requests, processing contracts or completing any required due diligence (the list is not exhaustive). 

The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1)(b) of the GDPR (performance of a contract)

  • informing you via any means (including via email, telephone, text message, social media, post, or in person) about our products, services, publications, and events that we think may be of interest to you and your company, based on previous purchases and interest shown in our products and services. 

The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (our legitimate interest in developing our business and relationship with you). 

Sakura will not sell or rent personally identifiable information to any third party for any purpose. Sakura may use the services of a third party to provide Sakura with support services in connection with our websites and such parties may, from time to time, have access to your personally identifiable information to enable them to provide those services to Sakura. Please take note that Sakura requires all such third parties to meet the same standards of data protection as Sakura and are prohibited from using the information for their own marketing purposes.

Sakura uses personally identifiable information only for the purposes for which you provide it.

      (4) Marketing and research

Sakura may use collected information, to improve the content of our websites, to customise our websites to your preferences, for our internal marketing and research purposes, to analyse statistics and trends, and for any other purpose specified. This processing is based on Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR (your prior consent). 

How we protect your personal information

Sakura is committed to protecting the security of your personal information. Sakura takes reasonable steps to protect your information as you transmit it to one of our companies and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free, and Sakura cannot be responsible for breaches of security beyond our reasonable control.

In order to ensure that the service providers comply with the same data protection standards as in our company, we have concluded appropriate contracts for order processing. These contracts regulate, among other things:

  • that third parties only have access to the data they need to carry out the tasks assigned to them; 
  • that the service providers only grant access to your data to employees who have explicitly committed themselves to comply with data protection regulations;
  • that the service providers comply with technical and organisational measures that guarantee data security and data protection;
  • what happens to the data when the business relationship between the service provider and us is terminated

For service providers based outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we take special security measures (e.g. by using special contractual clauses) to ensure that the data is treated with the same level of caution that is exercised in the EEA. We regularly check all our service providers for compliance with our specifications.
