Privacy Policy

This privacy policy explains how The Federation of Chefs Scotland use any personal information we may collect about you, and received through your use of this website (www.scottishchefs.com).

What information do we collect about you?

We collect information about you through your membership of The Federation of Chefs Scotland, along with attendance at any of our events or competitions. We also collect information when you consent to submitting your details through our website contact form. Anonymised website usage information is also collected through this website’s use of cookies (see below).

How will we use the information about you?

We take your privacy seriously, and will only use the personal information we receive about you in order to process your membership, manage your account and, if you agree, to email you about any of our events and services that we think may be of interest to you.

We will not share your information with any third parties for marketing purposes.

We may subcontract third parties to provide specialist services on our behalf under contract. This means that these companies may also process your data. Whenever we ask another organisation to provide a service for us, we ensure that they have security measures in place to protect your information at all times. In processing your application, we may send your details to, and also use information from credit reference agencies and fraud prevention agencies.

Security

We use reasonable organisational, technical and administrative measures to protect any Personal Data that may be held within our organisation. We store customer data in secured premises, and our customer records are held for a minimum of 7 years – for purposes of HMRC audits or inspections. Our website only stores a log of any contact form submissions made – which is deleted on a regular basis.

In the event that any data we hold is compromised, we will notify you and any relevant authorities within 72 hours by e-mail with information about the extent of the breach, any affected data and provide details of our action plan for measures to secure the data and limit any possible detrimental effect on the data subjects.

If you feel that the security of any data we may hold has been compromised, please contact us immediately.

Marketing

We may occasionally send you information about our products and services which we feel would be of interest to you. You have a right at any time to stop us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If you have consented to receive marketing, you may opt out at a later date.
