What we collect

We collect information about you when you subscribe to receive updates or offers from us or correspond with us about our products and services. We also collect information when you voluntarily complete customer surveys, provide feedback and participate in competitions. We may collect the following information:
• Name
• Contact information including address, telephone number and email address


How we use your information

As a valued customer we require this information about you to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:


• Promotions & Offers - We may periodically send promotional emails about new products, special offers or other information which we think you may find interesting using the email address which you have provided.


• Enquiries & Complaints - We will only use the personal information we collect on our contact forms to process your enquiry or complaint and to check on the level of service we provide. We do compile and publish statistics showing information like the number of complaints we receive, but not in a form which identifies anyone. We will keep personal information contained in complaint files in line with our retention policy. This means that information relating to a complaint will be retained for one year from closure. It will be retained in a secure environment and access to it will be restricted.


• Market Research - From time to time, we may also use your information to contact you for market research purposes. We may contact you by email, phone, fax or mail. You can simply decline to participate at the point of contact or, should you wish never to be contacted for the purpose of market research, you can tell us at any time by emailing us at info@geniusglutenfree.com

• Social Media - We actively use social media platforms as a way of connecting, and getting closer, to our customers to hear and understand what our customers think about us and our products and services. Occasionally, we may contact you directly via those social media platforms if we would like to share your comments or pictures with other customers or publish them in our marketing materials. We will always ask you if you are happy for us to use your data in this way and will keep any data that you provide to us, such as email address, confidential and secure.

We respect your privacy and we will treat all personal information received from any visitor to our website as confidential. It will only be used for Genius Foods business purposes or, on our behalf, by third party agents selected by us and who have agreed to keep it confidential and who will only use it for Genius business purposes.

We will not distribute, sell or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. When you agree to receive our newsletter, we will give you the option to tick a box to give us consent to contact you by email with product information, offerings and promotions which we feel may be of interest to you. If you consent to be contacted, you will be added to our email database.

If you wish to be removed from our email database, you may instruct us to do so at any time by e-mailing us at info@geniusglutenfree.com
