Disclosure of your personal information
FoodCycle will not rent or sell your personal information to other organisations.
However, where you have given us permission to contact you we may allow partner organisations access to some of your personal information so they can contact or provide services to you on our behalf. A partner organisation may for example include a fundraising agency calling on our behalf.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our terms and conditions of this site, or to protect the rights, property or safety of FoodCycle, our supporters or others.

Where we store your personal information
FoodCycle may for financial or technical reasons from time to time need to use the services of an Internet Services Provider located outside of the European Economic Area. However, FoodCycle shall ensure that your personal information will be held by those Internet Service Providers in compliance with European data protection regulations.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk.
