5. I understand and agree that any personal data (such as contact information) that I may supply in the context of this submission will be primarily processed in The Netherlands and may be used, stored, transferred and processed by FrieslandCampina for the purposes of evaluating the Technological Innovation Submission. I also agree and consent that such personal data may also be transferred to another country to another company of the FrieslandCampina group, for the same evaluation purposes.

6. This Technology Submission Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between FrieslandCampina and me regarding the Technological Innovation Submission.

7. I represent that I am at least 18 years old, and that I have the entire legal capacity to enter into this Technology Submission Agreement.
