We sometimes need to share the personal information we process with other organisations. We will only do this in compliance with current data protection regulations. The Cornish Food Company Ltd may share your data with the following types of company in order to provide our services to you, as set out in this statement:

  • Companies approved by you, such as social media sites (if you choose to link your accounts to us)

We may provide third parties with aggregated but anonymised information and analytics about our customers and, before we do so, we will make sure that it does not identify you.


Our Legitimate interests and the impact on processing your data

When we process your personal information for our legitimate interests, we make sure to consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights under data protection laws. “Legitimate Interests” means the interests of our company in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best services and the best and most secure experience. For example, we have an interest in making sure our marketing is relevant to you, so we may process your information to send you marketing that is tailored to your interests. This can also apply to processing that is in your interests as well. For example, we may process your information to protect you against fraud when transacting on our website, and to ensure our website and IT systems are secure. Our legitimate business interests do not automatically override your interests – we will not use your personal data for activities where our interests are overridden by the impact on you (unless we have your consent or are otherwise required or permitted to by law).

We are required under UK tax law to keep your basic personal data (name, address, contact details) for a minimum of 6 years after which time it will be destroyed. Your information we use for marketing purposes will be kept with us until you notify us that you no longer wish to receive this information. We may transfer your personal information to suppliers or service providers based outside of the EEA for the purposes described in this privacy policy. If we do this your personal information will continue to be subject to one or more appropriate safeguards set out under the GDPR. These might be the use of model contracts in a form approved by regulators, or having our suppliers sign up to an independent privacy scheme approved by regulators (like the US ‘Privacy Shield’ scheme).
