INTRODUCTION AND SCOPE
In the context of this Policy, ChromaDex acts as a data controller for the Personal Data we process. This means that we decide why and how your Personal Data will be processed.
PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
Depending on whether you are a current or prospective customer, a website visitor or a current or prospective business partner (e.g. a supplier), we may process various types of Personal Data, as described in the Table below. The Table below also shows you how and why we collect Personal Data and the categories of third parties with whom we share Personal Data.
BASIS OF PROCESSING
Within the scope of this Policy, we may rely on one or more of the following legal grounds for processing your Personal Data:
- the need to perform our obligations under a contract or to perform related pre-contractual duties;
- the need to pursue our legitimate interests or those of a third party, such as our interest in marketing our products;
- your consent or explicit consent (which you may withdraw at any time);
- the need to comply with applicable laws, especially those related to your health and safety; and any other grounds, as required or permitted by law.
If you purchase a product from us, we require certain Personal Data about you (and the intended recipient of the product, if different) in order to complete the sale. Without such Personal Data, we may not be able to provide our products to you or the intended recipient. Similarly, if we purchase any products or services from you, we require certain Personal Data about you in order to complete the purchase and without such Personal Data, we are unable to procure products or services from you.
SHARING PERSONAL DATA WITH SERVICE PROVIDERS
We may share your Personal Data with service providers, as indicated in the Table. We will require that these third-party service providers maintain at least the same level of data protection that we maintain for such Personal Data.

TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA TO THIRD COUNTRIES
We are headquartered in the United States. However, both the EU General Data Protection Regulation and the so-called UK GDPR (together, “GDPR”) may apply to our processing of Personal Data due to the nature of our processing operations concerning individuals in the European Economic Area and/or the United Kingdom (together, “EEA+”).
Some of the third party recipients noted above who receive your Personal Data may be located in countries outside the EEA+.
In some cases, the European Commission and/or the UK Government (as and where applicable) may not have determined that the legal environment in certain of those countries provides a level of data protection that is essentially equivalent to the level of protection provided under the GDPR and other applicable laws in the EEA+ (such countries, “Restricted Countries”).
Where we transfer your Personal Data to a recipient in a Restricted Country, we will either:
- enter into an appropriate data transfer / processing agreement with such recipient, which incorporates the so-called Standard Contractual Clauses issued or approved from time-to-time under the GDPR by the European Commission, the UK Information Commissioner’s Office and/or the UK Government (as and where applicable); or
- rely on other appropriate transfer mechanisms permitted by the GDPR (e.g., your explicit consent to that transfer).
You may ask for a copy of the Standard Contractual Clauses referred to above by contacting us using the contact details provided below.
HOW WE DISCLOSE PERSONAL DATA
We may also disclose your Personal Data:
- to the extent required by law or if we have a good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to comply with official investigations or legal proceedings initiated by governmental and/or law enforcement officials, or private parties, including but not limited to: in response to subpoenas, search warrants, or court orders;
- if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our company’s business interests, assets, or both, or in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, or other company change;
- to our subsidiaries or affiliates only if necessary for business and operational purposes.
We reserve the right to use, transfer, sell, and share aggregated, anonymous data, which does not include any Personal Data, about the users of our services as a group for any legal business purpose, such as analyzing usage trends and seeking compatible advertisers, sponsors, clients, and customers.
If we must disclose your Personal Data in order to comply with official investigations or legal proceedings initiated by governmental and/or law enforcement officials, we may not be able to ensure that such recipients of your Personal Data will maintain the privacy or security of your Personal Data.
DATA INTEGRITY & SECURITY
ChromaDex has implemented and will maintain technical, organizational, and physical security measures that are reasonably designed to help protect Personal Data from unauthorized processing, such as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Personal Data will be deleted within thirteen months of the last interaction with the respective data subject.

If you are a data subject about whom we store Personal Data, you may have the legal right to request access to, and the opportunity to update, correct, or delete such Personal Data. You may also have the right to ask that we limit our processing of your Personal Data, as well as the right to object to our processing of your Personal Data. You may also have the right to ask to have your Personal Data exported in a machine-readable format. To make such requests, if applicable, please contact us using the information in the “Contact Us” section of this Policy.
