Please be advised that the Personal Data that we collect from you may be transferred between members of the Next Gen Foods Group and to third parties in connection with the purposes set out above.

We will only retain your Personal Data insofar and as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which the information was collected or as permitted under applicable law.

Please be advised that in certain situations, we may anonymise your Personal Data (such that it can no longer be linked to your identity) for research or statistical purposes. In such situations, we may continue to process such data indefinitely without further notice to you.

We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

Third party websites and services.
Our websites may contain links to third party websites and services with which we have no affiliation, and who may adopt different data protection and privacy policies than us. A link to or other availability of any third party website or service does not mean we endorse it, or the quality or accuracy of the information presented on it. When you click on one of those links, you are entering another website over which we have no control and will bear no responsibility. Our Privacy Notice does not apply to those third party websites and services, we encourage you to carefully review the legal and privacy policies of those third parties if you decide to visit their websites and/or use their services.

If you are resident in the EEA and you believe we are unlawfully processing your Personal Data, you also have the right to complain to your local data protection supervisory authority. You can find their contact details here: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/bodies/authorities/index_en.htm. If you are a resident of the UK, your local data protection supervisory authority is the Information Commissioner’s Office, established at 45 Melville Street Edinburgh EH3 7HL.
- C. Transfers
We may transfer your Personal Data outside of the EEA and/or UK. Some of the recipients of your Personal Data are located in countries in respect of which either the European Commission and/or UK Government (as and where applicable) has issued adequacy decisions, in which case, the recipient’s country is recognized as providing an adequate level of data protection under UK and/or European data protection laws (as applicable) and the transfer is therefore permitted under Article 45 of the GDPR.
Some recipients of your Personal Data may be located in countries outside the EEA and/or the UK for which the European Commission or UK Government (as and where applicable) has not issued adequacy decisions in respect of the level of data protection in such countries (“Restricted Countries”). For example, the United States is a Restricted Country. Where we transfer your Personal Data to a recipient in a Restricted Country, we will either:
- enter into appropriate data transfer agreements based on so-called Standard Contractual Clauses approved from time-to-time under GDPR Art. 46 by the European Commission, the UK Information Commissioner’s Office or UK Government (as and where applicable); or
- rely on other appropriate means permitted by the EU/UK GDPR, which establish that such recipients will provide an adequate level of data protection and that appropriate technical and organizational security measures are in place to protect Personal Data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss or alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and against all other unlawful forms of processing.
You may ask for a copy of such appropriate data transfer agreements by contacting us using the contact details above.
