Web Privacy Statement


Nutrien respects the privacy of the personal information of the individuals with whom we interact. We have developed this privacy statement to describe how we collect, use and disclose the personal information of those individuals who visit our website. We have developed other documents that describe our privacy policies and practices with respect to our potential, current and former employees (see our “Employee Privacy Policy”) and with respect to our customers, suppliers and other parties with whom we interact (see our “Privacy Policy”).  In addition to the practices set forth in this Web Privacy Statement, Nutrien or certain members of the Nutrien Family may adopt specific information handling and privacy practices to address privacy issues unique to their operations and jurisdictional requirements.

What is Personal Information?

Personal information is any information about an identified or identifiable individual. Personal information does not include anonymous or non-personal information (i.e., information that cannot be associated with or tracked back to a specific individual).

What Personal Information Do We Collect?

Our web server may collect information related to your visit to our website, including the IP address and domain used to access our website, the type and version of your browser, the website you came from to access our website, the page you entered and exited at, any website page that is viewed by that IP address and what country you are from. We use this information to monitor our website's performance (such as number of visits, average time spent, page views) and for our business purposes such as working to continually upgrade our website. In addition, we collect the personal information that you submit to our website, such as your name, address and any other contact or other information that you choose to provide by:

  • using the "contact us" portion of this website;
  • corresponding with a representative of Nutrien via e-mail using the hyperlinks created for that purpose; or
  • applying for a position with Nutrien through this website. Note that personal information collected for the purposes of applying for a position with Nutrien is governed by our “Employee Privacy Policy.”

We use this information to provide you with the information you requested, in anticipation of an employment contract with you, or to receive, and act upon, your feedback or issues.
In the U.S., certain states require that we make specific disclosures regarding our collection and use of personal information. For additional information, that may apply based on your location, please see the State Specific Addenda below.

How Do We Use Cookies?

When you visit the website, we may place a "cookie" on the hard drive of your computer to track your visit. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your hard drive through your web browser that can only be read by the website that placed the cookie on your hard drive. The cookie acts as an identification card and allows our website to identify you and to record your preferences. The cookie allows us to track your visit to the website so that we can better understand your use of our website so that we can customize and tailor the website to better meet your needs.

Most web browsers are set to accept cookies. However, on most web browsers you may change this setting to have your web browser either: (1) notify you prior to a website placing a cookie on your hard drive so that you can decide whether or not to accept the cookie; or (2) automatically prevent the placing of a cookie on your hard drive. It should be noted that if cookies are not accepted, you will not be able to access a number of web pages found on the website.

We do not currently recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include "Do Not Track" instructions.

What about Links to other Websites?

Our website may contain links to other websites that may be subject to less stringent privacy standards. We cannot assume any responsibility for the privacy practices, policies or actions of the third parties that operate these websites. Nutrien is not responsible for how such third parties collect, use or disclose your personal information. You should review the privacy policies of these websites before providing them with personal information.

Why Do We Collect, Use, and Disclose Personal Information?

The personal information collected is used and disclosed for our business purposes, including for those purposes explained in this privacy statement and in our External Privacy Policy and Employee Privacy Policy.

Your personal information may be shared with our employees, contractors, consultants, affiliates and other parties who require such information to assist us with establishing, maintaining and managing our relationship with you. In some instances, such parties may also provide certain information technology and data processing services to us so that we may operate our business. We may share personal information with such parties both in and outside of your home jurisdiction, and as result, your personal information may be collected, used, processed, stored or disclosed in Canada and in the United States of America, and in some cases, other countries. Personal information is only transferred by us to another country, including within the Nutrien Family, if this is required or permitted under the applicable privacy legislation, in particular only in as far as a reasonable level of data protection is assured in the recipient country.

When we share personal information with such parties we typically require that they only use or disclose such personal information in a manner consistent with the use and disclosure provisions of this privacy statement.

In addition, personal information may be disclosed or transferred to another party in the event of a change in ownership of, or a grant of a security interest in, all or a part of Nutrien.

We may collect, use or disclose your personal information without your knowledge or consent where we are permitted or required by applicable law or regulatory requirements to do so.

For additional information, that may apply based on your location, please see the State Specific Addenda below.

Your Consent is Important to Us

By using our website, we assume that you have consented to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as explained in this privacy statement and in our External Privacy Policy and Employee Privacy Policy.

You may change or withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice, by contacting the office of our Privacy Officer in the manner described in our External Privacy Policy. Further, you can ask to see the personal information that we hold about you. For information on accessing your personal information, please see our External Privacy Policy and Employee Privacy Policy.

How is Your Personal Information Protected?

Nutrien endeavors to maintain physical, technical and procedural safeguards that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information in question. These safeguards are designed to protect your personal information from loss and unauthorized access, copying, use, modification or disclosure.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while this website strives to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. Once this website receives your transmission, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.

In the event that we are required by law to inform you of a breach to your personal information we may notify you electronically, in writing, or by telephone, if permitted to do so by law.

Inquiries or Concerns?

For more information about our privacy policies please visit our website or contact our Privacy Officer, in the manner described in our External Privacy Policy and Employee Privacy Policy.

Interpretation of this Privacy Statement

Any interpretation associated with this privacy statement will be made by our Privacy Officer. This privacy statement includes examples but is not intended to be restricted in its application to such examples, therefore where the word 'including' is used, it shall mean 'including without limitation'.

This privacy statement applies to and governs the activities of the Nutrien family of companies, including the parent company, Nutrien Ltd. and its affiliated entities (the “Nutrien Family”). All references herein to "Nutrien", “we", "us", "our" and like terms refer collectively to the Nutrien Family.

Nutrien endeavors to comply with the privacy legislation within each jurisdiction in which we operate. Sometimes the privacy legislation and / or an individual's right to privacy are different from one jurisdiction to another. Should there be, in a specific case, any inconsistency between this privacy statement and the applicable privacy laws, this privacy statement shall be interpreted, in respect of that case, to give effect to, and comply with, such privacy laws.
