To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our policy within this area. If you do not agree to the terms in this Policy, we kindly ask you to leave the site.

Personal information about you may be collected when you visit the Grain Chain website, either by the automatic operation of tracking devices (see the section on 'cookies' – link to Cookies page) or where we expressly request your personal information.

Submitting personal information about yourself (such as your name, address or email) to this website will result in those details being used only for official purposes related to the site, and we will not pass them on to any third party. This complies with the Data Protection Act 1998. If you complete an order form asking us to send you printed resources and/or our email newsletter, we will use your personal details for this purpose and will not pass those details to any third party. Your personal data will be stored in the United Kingdom.

You have the right as an individual to find out what personal information we hold about you and to request that we correct any errors in your personal information. Also, you may request that we do not use your personal information.

You may request that we amend any of your personal information that we hold by contacting us through the 'Contact us' section of this website (link to Contact Us page).

Correcting/storing/updating personal information

You can do this by contacting us at any time by email, phone or letter.

Security policy
As a global organization, NABIM has many users all over the world. When you provide NABIM with personal information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. In addition, that information may be used, stored and processed outside of the country where you entered the information. Whenever NABIM handles personal information, regardless of where this occurs, NABIM takes every precaution to ensure that your information is treated securely, for instance by encrypting the information with SSL and by storing the information in a secure environment.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 per cent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, NABIM cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to NABIM and you do so at your own risk.

Your rights
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. We will usually inform you if we intend to use your data for such purposes or if we intend to disclose your information to any third party for such purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by checking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us (link to Contact Us page).
