Protecting your privacy
The Real Food Campaign is committed to protecting your privacy and confidentiality. We understand that all users of this site are quite rightly concerned to know that their data will not be used for any purpose unintended by them, and will not fall into the hands of a third party.
We do not share, or sell, or disclose to a third party, any personally identifiable information collected at this site. If this policy should change in the future then we shall provide notification in advance and the opportunity for all users to indicate whether or not they would prefer that we do not provide the information to third parties as proposed.
Here is a list of the information we collect, and why it is necessary to collect it:
1a. Basic identification and contact information such as your name and contact details.
This information is used:
- to provide you with the services which you request
- to enable us to answer your enquiries
- for verifying your identity for security purposes
- to help make our web site as useful to you as possible
1b. Use of non-personally identifiable information: information which does not identify any individual may be used in a general way by us or third parties, to provide class information, for example relating to demographics or usage of a particular page or service.
2. Your IP address is recognised by our servers and the pages that you visit are recorded. This information is used:
2.1. in a collective way and not referable to any particular individual, for the purpose of quality control and improvement of our site;
2.2. to send you news and information which may be of interest to you.
3. Information volunteered by you for a particular purpose, for example, a personal profile, survey, job application form, or contest. This information will be used exclusively for the purpose for which you have provided it. Information is disclosed to third parties only where the third party concerned qualifies in whatever way the web site page requires.
4. Business information – This is information given to us in the course of your business and ours, such as in relation to your application to partner with or advertise with us. Such information is retained for business use only. We undertake to preserve the confidentiality of the information and of the terms of our relationship. It is not used for any other purpose. We expect you and any partner to reciprocate this policy.
5. Disclosure to Government – We are subject to the law like everyone else. We may be required to give information to legal authorities if they so request, or if they have the proper authorisation such as a search warrant or court order.
6. Information request – At any time you may review or update the personally identifiable information that we hold about you, by contacting us. To better safeguard your information, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections to your information.
The information contained in this website is for general information purposes only. The information is provided by the Real Food Campaign and while we endeavour to keep the information up to date and correct, we make no representations or warranties of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability with respect to the website or the information, products, services, or related graphics contained on the website for any purpose. Any reliance you place on such information is therefore strictly at your own risk.
In no event will we be liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the use of this website.
