FoodDocs
FoodDocs OÜ, registry code 14177340, located at 12 Pärnu Road, Tallinn, 10148, Estonia (hereinafter „FoodDocs“) administrates the FoodDocs platform at https://www.fooddocs.eu, which creates a digital desktop for legal entities specialising in food.
The FoodDocs platform and the services it renders are intended solely for business customers, and therefore FoodDocs shall only process the personal data of representatives acting on behalf of business customers insofar as it is indispensable for rendering the platform service to business customers. That said, the term „User“ in the Privacy Policy of FoodDocs shall refer to a representative acting on behalf of a business customer.
FoodDocs warrants that it complies with the requirements arising from the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 in processing the data. With this Privacy Policy, FoodDocs aims to inform Users about the processing operations their data are subjected to.
We have the right to change this Privacy Policy unilaterally at any time. In case of such change, we shall notify the Users.
  1. Data collected
    FoodDocs shall process the data about Users, which Users have voluntarily submitted to the FoodDocs platform. Users understand that the submission of data to FoodDocs is voluntary, but they will not be able to use the FoodDocs platform and the services it renders unless the data are submitted.
    FoodDocs shall collect and process the following data about Users (hereinafter collectively referred to as „Personal Data“):
    • name, telephone number and email address;
    • information about the legal entity being represented (enterprise name, registry code);
    • the User’s profile picture;
    • credit card data for the purpose of paying for the service;
    • other data that the User decides to disclose about itself on the platform.
  2. Purpose and legal basis
    FoodDocs shall process Personal Data solely for the purposes established by the law and this Privacy Policy, including the following purposes: creating a personal account for the User, identifying and contacting the User, rendering the platform service, providing support services (including user support), and fulfilling the obligations arising from the law.
    FoodDocs shall process Users’ Personal Data on the basis of the following:
    • The legal contract concluded between the legal entity represented by the User and FoodDocs in order to render the platform service to it, which also includes granting access to the platform;
    • The consent given by the User to FoodDocs. On the basis of the consent, FoodDocs shall process such data which are not indispensable for rendering the platform service in case the User has still decided to submit them on the platform voluntarily (for example, the profile picture);
    • For fulfilling relevant legal obligations.
  3. Data forwarding and storage
    FoodDocs may forward the User’s Personal Data to third parties, for example, auditors, legal service providers, accountants or any other persons who render services to FoodDocs (for instance, a cloud service provider or food technologist). FoodDocs has undertaken every effort for the above third parties to ensure the confidentiality and security of the Personal Data.
    The third parties to which FoodDocs forwards Users’ Personal Data may be located outside the European Economic Area where other personal data protection regulations might be effective and for which the Europen Commission has not implemented the decision on the adequacy of protection. In the above countries, the security of Personal Data (including protection from misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction) may not be guaranteed at the same level as in the European Union. In case of forwarding the Personal Data beyond the European Economic Area, FoodDocs shall guarantee the implementation of appropriate security measures. If the User wishes to receive a copy of such data, we ask you to notify FoodDocs accordingly.
    FoodDocs has implemented the necessary organisational, physical and IT security measures for the data published on the platform, including the Personal Data, to be protected from any misuse, unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Third parties have been informed that they may solely use the Users’ Personal Data for the purpose and to the extent specified by FoodDocs.
    FoodDocs shall store the Personal Data for as long a period as prescribed by the law but no longer than FoodDocs reasonably needs to fulfil the purposes for which the data were collected or processed; among other things, the storage of the Personal Data until the expiration of any potential claims by the User may be one of such criteria.
    FoodDocs shall implement reasonable measures for ensuring that the Personal Data are accurate and reliable.
  4. User’s rights pertaining to data collection
    The User has the following rights pertaining to data collection:
    • to request access to the Personal Data about the User collected by FoodDocs and to request a copy of the Personal Data;
    • to request the correction, amendment or deletion of the Personal Data if they are inaccurate or are not processed in accordance with effective requirements;
    • in cases established by the law, to demand that FoodDocs restricts the collection, processing or use of the Personal Data about the User;
    • in case of a violation of the User’s rights, file a complaint to the Data Protection Inspectorate.
