Protecting your privacy
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) requires all organisations within the EU who process Personal Data to be transparent on how, why and what data is captured, stored and processed; the lawful basis for holding and processing personal data; how individuals can access information on themselves held by the organisation; and how they can control, or object to, the use of their personal data.

This statement sets out how this is implemented across all of our communications channels, applications and networks, and details your rights in relation to your personal data that |Transform Nutrition West Africa captures, stores and uses.
