The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a law about the way personal data is processed in the UK. It applies to everyone who processes data as part of their business, and requires transparency about how your information is processed. NutrEat is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. This privacy policy as part of the consent form sets out how NutrEat uses and protects any personal information you provide us. Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using our services, you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

The policy is effective as from 25th May 2018.
