Third Parties – let’s be upfront and clear from the start – you stay in control

National Takeaway Association takes privacy and data protection seriously, and we get upset too when we see other companies abusing trust – so we aim to be clear and upfront with our users from the start. Even though our quality content is provided at a small yearly cost, to deliver it requires a dedicated team of professionals using cutting-edge technologies and systems. These are, sadly, not free. So, our business depends on working in partnership with a range of third-party organisations, each of which pay a fee to promote their relevant products and services on our website, digitally or in print.

National Takeaway Association purpose is to act as a voice for the industry, and we feel strongly that our advertisers have something of value and interest to say to our users. We like making connections and helping people to discover new solutions as well as to learn and hear about the latest developments from all areas of the industry.

While we work with third parties, you always stay in control. National Takeaway Association will never sell or pass your data to any third party without your express permission. When you complete our simple subscription form or if you go to download any materials from the site you can decide if you are happy to be contacted by a third party or not. You have the control to select whether you want to receive emails from us, and which ones, through a preference centre, and you can unsubscribe at any time. Only where you have agreed to be contacted by an advertiser when you download any third-party content will we share your information with them, because you asked us to.

Many of our advertisers are just as forward thinking as we are, and with new data protection regulations (such as GDPR), they wouldn’t work with us if we didn’t meet these high standards. All we ask our users is to remember that our advertisers are a key part of enabling National Takeaway Association  to do what we do, so please consider what they have to say and give their products some thought when browsing online or print.

For more information on the data we collect from you and how it is used, please read our separate Privacy Policy.
