  6. How We Use Your Personal Data

    1. We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
      • Performance of Contract means processing your personal data where it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before entering into such a contract.
      • Legitimate Interest means the interest of our business in conducting and managing our business to enable us to give you the best product/service and the best and most secure experience. We make sure we consider and balance any potential impact on you (both positive and negative) and your rights before we process your personal data for our legitimate interests. We do 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). You can contact us for further information about how we assess our legitimate interests against any potential impact on you in respect of specific activities (please see the CONTACT section).
      • Consent means where we have obtained your agreement to process your personal data. Consent must be freely given, specific, informed and be an unambiguous indication of your wishes for us to process your personal data (this may be collected by you ticking a box). Generally we do not rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal data other than in relation to sending marketing material to you via email, post, phone, sms, and social media. You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us (please see the Contact Us page or click the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the marketing material you received).
      • Comply with a legal or regulatory obligation means processing your personal data where it is necessary for compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation that we are subject to.
    2. Marketing. We strive to provide you with choices regarding certain personal data uses, particularly around marketing and advertising.
      • To our customers:
        We may send marketing material about Wholesome Kitchen and our selected partners (including email promotions and gifts and special offers in your meal plans) to you as a customer. We will only send marketing to people who have previously bought similar products from us or have expressed an interest in our products, and this is in our legitimate interests. We will always give you the option to opt out of receiving this marketing when you first purchase or express an interest in our products and in every marketing communication afterwards. When we market to you we may use your Identity, Contact, Technical, Usage, Profile and Marketing and Communications Data.
        You may receive marketing communications from us after you have requested information from us or opened a customer account and, in each case, you have opted-in to receiving that marketing. You can withdraw your consent at any time (please see the Opting Out / Unsubscribing section).
      • Opting Out / Unsubscribing:
        You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages at any time by logging into your account (if you are a customer) and checking or unchecking relevant boxes to adjust your marketing preferences or by following the opt-out / unsubscribe links on any marketing message sent to you or by contacting us at any time.
        Where you opt out of receiving these marketing messages, you may still receive messages for other purposes (such as providing the products and services to you).

If you wish to get an explanation as to how the processing for the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose, you can contact us (please see the CONTACT US section).

    9. If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
    10. Please note that we may process your personal data without your knowledge or consent, in compliance with the above rules, where this is required or permitted by law.
  7. Disclosures of Your Personal Data

    1. For the purposes set out in the HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA section we may have to share your personal data with the following parties:
      • External Third Parties such as:­Service providers and developers based in (and outside) Ireland who provide IT and system administration (including email, payment software and hosting) services.
        Specialist suppliers for the packing, dispatch and delivery of our products (based in Ireland). Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors and insurers based in Ireland who provide consultancy, legal, banking, accounting insurance and services.
        ­ Revenue, regulators, law enforcement bodies, police and other authorities based in Ireland who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances (such as criminal activity, suspected or actual fraud or tax evasion).
        ­ Marketing and PR agencies based in Ireland to help us with data analysis, social media marketing and other marketing (including if you agree to a publication / article with us).
      • Specific Third Parties such as Flywheel Hosting a cloud hosting provider, with their server based in Europe, who provide application servers and cloud storage.
      • Third parties to whom we may choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal data in the same way as set out in this privacy policy.
    2. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.
    3. We reserve the right to disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.
  8. International Transfers

    1. We do not process your personal data in any country outside the European Union (EU).
    2. However, certain third parties are based outside of the EU, so their processing of your personal data will involve a transfer of data outside the EU.
    3. Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EU, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
      • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
      • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
      • Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.
    4. Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data out of the EU.
  9. Data Security

    1. We have put in place appropriate security measures (including SSL technology) to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
    2. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
  10. Data Retention

    How long will you use my personal data for?

    1. We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
    2. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
    3. We will generally retain our clients’ data for a period of 5 (five) years after a contract has ended, to ensure that we are able to assist you should you have any questions or feedback in relation to our products or services or to protect, or defend our legal rights, or for tax purposes.
    4. Where we have processed your personal data to provide you with marketing communications with consent, we may contact you at least every 12 (twelve) months to ensure you are happy to continue receiving such communications. If you tell us that you no longer wish to receive such communications, your personal data will be removed from our marketing lists (and will be added to a “do not contact” list).
    5. Where we have processed your data for any other reason (such as where you have contacted us with a question in connection with services or in relation to recruitment), we will retain your data for 12 (twelve) months.
    6. In some circumstances you can ask us to delete your data; please see the YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS section for further information.
    7. In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
    1. Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. These rights are detailed below:
      • Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
      • Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
      • Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
      • Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
      • Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
      • Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
      • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
    2. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us directly (please see the CONTACT US section).
      • No fee usually required. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.
      • 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 your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
      • Time limit to respond. We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
