Kafoodle Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, process, use and store personal information about you in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”). The GDPR concerns how “personal data” (which we refer to as “personal information” in this Privacy Policy) is managed. Personal information is anything that allows us to identify you either directly or indirectly.

This includes when you use our websites (such as https://www.kafoodle.com and any other websites registered under this domain), mobile applications and/or subscribe to any of our platforms (such as Kafoodle Kitchen, Kafoodle Communications, Kafoodle Electronic Personalised Meal Ordering, Kafoodle Meal Planning and/or Kafoodle Essentials) and/or engage with us on any of our services – as we are obtaining personal information about you in this process.

2. Who is Kafoodle?

Kafoodle Limited (the “company”, “we”, “our”, “us”) is registered in the UK and our registered address is at 2a The Quadrant, Epsom, England, KT17 4RH.

Kafoodle is a “data controller” in certain situations, such as when you use its website and/or its customers subscribe to certain platforms. Being a “data controller” means that we are responsible for deciding how we collect, process, use and store personal information about anyone who expressly consented and willingly provide their personal information to us.

Kafoodle is also considered to be a “data processor” in other situations, such as when its customers subscribe to certain platforms; in such situations, Kafoodle ensures to put in place the appropriate measures between it and its customers in order to comply with GDPR.

Kafoodle is required under the GDPR to notify you of the information contained in this Privacy Policy. Kafoodle is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified, it will only be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

3. Our obligations - data protection principles

Personal Data (also referred to as personal information in this Privacy Policy) is defined under GDPR as any data that identifies an individual (whether directly or indirectly) and Kafoodle will comply with the privacy principles in the GDPR which states any personal information we hold about you must be:

  1. used lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way;
  2. collected only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes;
  3. relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes;
  4. accurate and kept up to date;
  5. kept only as long as necessary for the purposes we have told you about; and
  6. kept securely.

4. Information we collect

We may collect certain user information, including personal information about you in the following ways:

Information you provide to us

To provide you with the required services, we may collect personal information that you provide voluntarily to us including; over the telephone, by e-mail, face-to-face, when you visit our website, for example, when you fill out the contact form, consent form, data subject access request form, participate in any interactive features on our website, participate in a survey, promotion, activity or event, apply for a job, request support, or communicate with us via third-party social media sites or direct marketing.

The types of information you are likely to provide to us include your name, email address, phone number, industry, company name as well as financial and bank account/debit/credit card information and any other information that you feel necessary in order for us to assist you.

Information we collect automatically when you use our website

When you access or use the Kafoodle website or services, we may automatically collect information about you, including:

Our websites use cookies to distinguish you from other users of our website. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site. For detailed information on the cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them see our Cookie Policy below.

Information we collect from other sources

We may receive information about you if you use any of the other websites we operate or the other services we provide. In this case we will have informed you when we collected that data that it may be shared internally and combined with data collected on this site. We are also working closely with third-parties (including, for example, business partners, sub-contractors in technical, payment and delivery services, advertising networks, analytics providers, search information providers and credit reference agencies) and may receive information about you from them.

5. How we use your personal information

We may use the personal information collected for the limited purpose of providing the required services and related functionality for which Kafoodle has been engaged. Most commonly, we will use your personal information where we have the following lawful bases:

6. Special categories of personal information

We may need to use more sensitive personal information (known as "special categories of personal data" under GDPR) about you or others associated with you, for example your family and/or carers. We will only use this kind of information where:

Where you have provided us with explicit consent to use special categories of personal information about you, you may withdraw your consent for us to use this information at any time. Please see right to withdraw your consent for further details. Please note that if you choose to withdraw your consent for us to use special categories of personal data about you, this may impact our ability to provide services to you.

7. Automated decision making

We do not undertake any fully automated decision-making processes.

8. How long will you use my information for?

We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any marketing, sales, legal, contractual, accounting, or reporting requirements.

9. Data security and data retention

While no service is completely secure, we take reasonable measures to help protect your information from loss, theft, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. We also take reasonable measures to deal with any suspected data security breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.

10. Where we store your data and when your data is transferred outside of the EEA

The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers.

Whenever we transfer your personal information out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you can contact us at support@kafoodle.com.

11. Change of purpose

We will only use your personal information supplied for the purposes for which we collected it, unless we reasonably consider that we need to use it for any other reasons and that reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we need to use your personal information for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

12. Sharing and disclosure of information

We will not share personal information about you with any third-parties except as described in this Privacy Policy or in connection with the services we provide to you. For example, we may share personal information about you including as follows:

13. Third-party services

Kafoodle may provide links to third-party sites through this website. Kafoodle assumes no responsibility for the information practices of sites a visitor accesses through our site, and we encourage visitors to review each site’s privacy policy/notice before disclosing any personal details as their own terms and policies will govern the use of those services’ security and data protection.

We will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third-parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. We ensure that appropriate technical and organisational measures are adopted by us to ensure safekeeping against unauthorised or unlawful processing of personal information and against accidental loss or destruction or damage to the personal data. We will retain information you provide on our website for as long as we need it to provide you or your organization with the services, unless we may need to retain this information as necessary to comply with any legal obligations. If you have submitted information to us and wish to see a copy of the information we hold about you or have it removed from our internal records, please email us at support@kafoodle.com.

14. Your choices

You may update, correct or delete information about you at any time by emailing support@kafoodle.com.

In particular, you can also request for the following

Upon request, Kafoodle will provide you with information about whether we hold, or process (including on behalf of a third-party), any of your personal information that we are aware of. To request this information, contact us at support@kafoodle.com. We will endeavour to respond to your access request within 30 days.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly excessive, repetitive, you have requested for multiple copies or your request is unfounded. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request if the circumstances appear unusual or strange; in any situation where we refuse to comply with a request we will write to you and inform you of the reasons.

15. What we may need from you

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

16. Right to withdraw consent

In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please send us email at support@kafoodle.com. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

17. Our policy toward children

Our website and services are not directed to individuals under 13. We do not directly collect personal information from children under 13. If you become aware that a child has provided us with personal information, please contact us at support@kafoodle.com. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will take steps to delete such information.

As we have explained above, there are certain situations in which Kafoodle is a “data processor”, such as when Kafoodle’s customers subscribe to Kafoodle’s products and subsequently provide their customers with access to these products. When Kafoodle is a “data processor” it may have obtained personal information on children from Kafoodle’s customers. Kafoodle’s customers are responsible for ensuring that they have obtained such information and provided it to Kafoodle lawfully. Kafoodle has put in place appropriate measures between it and its customers to protect any personal data that Kafoodle processes.

18. Promotional and newsletter communications.

You may opt out of receiving promotional and newsletter emails from Kafoodle by following the opt-out instructions provided in those emails. You may also opt-out of receiving promotional emails and other promotional communications from us at any time by emailing support@kafoodle.com with your specific request. If you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional communications, such as security alerts and notices related to your access to or use of the Kafoodle services or on our ongoing business relations.

19. Testimonials

We display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our website in addition to other endorsements. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name.

20. Data Protection / Compliance Team

We have a Compliance Team which oversee compliance with this Privacy Policy. If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or how we handle your personal information, please contact us on support@kafoodle.com.

21. How to make a complaint

Data privacy laws are constantly evolving and we endeavour to maintain best practice. However, we recognise that we may not always get it right and where you are not satisfied in the way we handle data or you wish to discuss our processes then we would be grateful to hear from you.

If there is something which we have not done correctly with your personal information then we would appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach a supervisory authority, so please contact us in the first instance at support@kafoodle.com.

However, you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (which is the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues; more information here: www.ico.org.uk)).

22. Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to update this Privacy Policy at any time, and we will provide you with an electronic copy of a new Privacy Policy when we make any substantial updates to this Privacy Policy. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your personal information.

If we are involved in a reorganisation, merger, acquisition or sale of our assets, your information may be transferred as part of the deal. We will notify you of any such deal and outline your choices in that event.
