Cookies and Similar Technologies
Cookies are pieces of information stored directly on the device that you are using while you interact with online sites that can identify your device and can contain other information as well. We may collect information from cookies and similar tracking technologies on Our Digital Services as well as in HTML-formatted e-mail messages that we send to you. Cookies and similar technologies do not directly identify who you are, but they do allow Us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on the Digital Services, pages visited, language preferences, and other aggregated traffic data. Cookies can be placed on your device by Us and also by Our service providers, such as web analytic companies and internet advertising networks. If you have logged on to your Corteva account through one of our Digital Services or respond to an e-mail from us or accepted the Cookies in our website, we may be able to link the information We collect to other information that identifies you. We use the information collected for various purposes, to store and honor your preferences and settings, security and authentication, analytics, measuring the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns, to serve you advertising for products and services that we believe will be of interest to you, and to fulfill other legitimate purposes described below.
The types of cookies We collect fall into one of three categories:
Where required by law, we obtain your consent before placing or using functional or advertising cookies and you can always opt in or out of functional or advertising cookies through the cookie preferences tool on Our Digital Services. This cookie preferences tool is enabled to process your preferences and in certain jurisdictions, to recognize and process a Universal Opt-Out signal. Some browsers have “do not track” settings. Because there is not yet a common understanding how to interpret these signals, We do not currently respond to browser “do not track” settings.
Once you have set your cookie preferences, the specific choices you made will be followed. Please remember that if you delete your preferences, or use a different browser or computer, you will need to set your cookies preferences again.
Other Technologies We Use
Where permitted by law, we use third party web analytics services such as Google and Adobe to better understand how users engage with our Digital Services. As discussed above under Cookies and Similar Technologies, these third parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across unaffiliated sites using cookies and other tracing technologies. We treat these cookies and technologies used to collect these analytics as non-required cookies and so you may set your cookie preferences accordingly.

Behavioral and Interest Based Advertising
Corteva may use third-party advertising companies to serve you online advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you based on your visits to our sites and other sites across the devices you use (commonly known as “behavioral advertising” or “interest-based advertising”). To do so, these advertising companies may collect information through the placement of cookies or other technologies as described above, on our Digital Services and combine it with information about your activities on other websites, mobile apps, and devices. You can prevent getting interest-based ads based on the placement of cookies by following the cookies opt-out steps detailed above, by declining cookies in your browser(s), declining the “access to data” requests that apps usually present when you install them, or by adjusting the ad tracking settings on your device. If you are in the United States and wish to opt out of targeted advertising or cross context behavioral advertising, you may click the opt-out button on our United States site homepage and/or complete an opt-out request form. More information can be found at US Privacy Notice (corteva.com).
Please note that even if you opt-out of advertising cookies or opt-out of behavioral and interest-based advertising you may still see advertisements from Us. These ads are not based on your behavior across various sites but based on the context of a specific site you visit. For instance, you may see an advertisement for a Corteva seed product when visiting a farming website.
Business Analytics and Artificial Intelligence
Where permitted by law, We may use information provided by you and/or business partners such as purchase history, geolocation data, satellite imagery, as well as agricultural field operation data in the design or use of business analytics and/or artificial intelligence.
