Food Cabinet’s Privacy Statement

Last updated: 21 June 2018

Food Cabinet is serious about protecting the privacy of our clients, the influencers we work with, and the guests we invite to our events. We process personal data only for the purpose for which it was provided and in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

We collect and retain personal data only to provide you with the best possible service and treat them with the utmost care. In this statement, we explain which data we collect, why we collect them, and how we collect and retain them. And you can also read how to enforce your rights in relation to your personal data.

About this privacy statement

This privacy statement will occasionally be amended because of legislative amendments or changes to our internal systems. The latest version is always available on this page.

Which data do we store and why?


If our projects consist of coalitions with various partners, we collect all data from the parties involved.

  • We retain partners’ data for 10 years

Guest at an event

If we are engaged to organise an event or to send a mailing (by post or email), the client sends us a list of contacts. The personal data we process for this purpose depends on each client. We use and retain these lists exclusively for the campaign for which we received them.

  • We retain this list for six months after the event or mailing occurs.


We regularly work with influencers. For this purpose, we collect their email address, name, postal address and telephone number. We never share influencers’ personal data with third parties or clients. But we’ll share their data with colleagues for mutual projects so that we can approach influencers when we believe a project we’re working on could appeal to them.

  • We retain influencers’ data for ten years after our last contact with them.

Journalisten, chefs and others in our netwerk

We regularly send press releases about projects to our network. We only send press releases if we think it will interest the person concerned. We never share personal data from our network with third parties or clients.

  • If you receive press releases from us but would like to be removed from Food Cabinet’s database, email us at
