Who we are
Our website address is: https://sheffood.org.uk. We respect the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) and this policy explains how we collect and treat any information you give us.
Information we collect
The personal information that you are asked to provide and the reasons why you are asked to provide it will be made clear to you at the point we ask you to provide your personal information.
If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you, such as your name, email address, phone number, organisation name, the contents of the message and/or attachments you may send us, and any other information you may choose to provide.
When you register as a partner, we may ask for your contact information, including items such as name, company name, address, email address, and telephone number.
ShefFood does not use any cookies to track its users. Instead, we’ve opted for Fathom Analytics, which provides analytical data while protecting users’ privacy. Learn more about Fathom Analytics here.
For more general information on cookies, please read “What Are Cookies” from the ICO.
How we use your information
We use the information we collect in various ways, including to:
- Provide, operate, and maintain our website
- Improve, personalise, and expand our website
- Understand and analyse how you use our website
- Develop new services, features, and functionality
- Communicate with you, either directly to provide support in our role as Sheffield Food Partnership
- Send you emails
- Find and prevent fraud
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. If you use a contact form, we will retain information indefinitely in the website and on our administrative systems so that we can respond appropriately
What rights you have over your data
If you have used our contact form, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your data.
Another part of our priority is adding protection for children while using the internet. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity.
ShefFood does not knowingly collect any Personal Identifiable Information from children under the age of 13. If you think that your child provided this kind of information on our website, we strongly encourage you to contact us immediately and we will do our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.
