Privacy statement

Welcome to our website! As an advocate for transparency, Fairfood aims to be as transparent as possible in the way business is handled; we also worry for your virtual safety as a visitor of our website. Needless to say: Fairfood takes the privacy legislation quite seriously. Therefore, we want to explain in detail below what this legislation entails for the both of us.

Everything you read next applies to all information, recommendations, documents, and services of Fairfood.

1. ABOUT US

A little bit about us: we are the Fairfood International Foundation, commonly known as Fairfood. You can find us at Mauritskade 64, 1092 AD, Amsterdam. On working days, we can be reached by phone (during office hours) on +31 6 16557605. Of course, we are also reachable through our e-mail info@fairfood.nl. Our organisation is registered at the Chamber of Commerce under the following number: 34141098.

The Fairfood website is constantly updated with new information, and although Fairfood always tries to bring accurate information to the table, we cannot guarantee that all information is always correct, complete and current. Of course, there is one exception: Fairfood’s annual reports. While the annual reports are legally valid, no rights can be derived from all other information that is to be found on the Fairfood website.

We hope not, yet if you have a complaint about the processing of your personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can also submit a request and view, change or delete the personal data that we have about you. Again: this can be done via info@fairfood.nl or +31 6 16557605 (for the latter, you can only expect a reply on working days during office hours). Of course, you always have the right to file a complaint with the Dutch Data Protection Authority – the supervisory authority in the field of privacy.
