This policy describes how The Design Chef and other companies in our group (also referred to as “The Design Chef”, “we” or “us”) will make use of your data to purchase services from our website (www.thedesignchef.com).
It also describes your data protection rights, including a right to object to some of the processing which The Design Chef carries out. More information about your rights, and how to exercise them, is set out in the “What rights do I have?” section.
We collect and process personal data about you when you interact with us and our websites, and when you purchase services from us. This includes:
We process this personal data for the following purposes:
Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your data for other purposes, such as those set out above. In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we rely on our legitimate interests. You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, or profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, or by contacting us using the details set out below.
You have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal data; to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your personal data; and to obtain the personal data you provide to us for a contract or with your consent in a structured, machine-readable format, and to ask us to share (port) this data to another controller.
In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirements, or where we are using the data for direct marketing).
These rights may be limited, for example, if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping.
We hope that we can satisfy queries you may have about the way we process your data. If you have any concerns about how we process your data or would like to opt out of direct marketing, you can get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
The data controller for your information is The Design Chef. Your personal data may be shared with other members of our group and certain third-party agents.
Where we process registration data, we do this for as long as you are an active user of our sites and for 12 months after this.
Where we process personal data for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the data until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us not to send you direct marketing or to process your data so that we can respect your request in future.
Where we process personal data in connection with performing a contract, we keep the transactional data for six years from your last interaction with us (or such longer period as may be required by law).
This policy is written in English with a reference translation in another language (if necessary). In the event of any conflict in interpreting or construing the terms of this policy, the English version shall prevail.
