Foodways Consulting AG takes data protection, particularly the protection of personal data, extremely seriously.
Foodways Consulting AG commits to handling your data properly and only for the intended and specified purposes.

When using the App, Foodways Consulting AG also collects general, non-personal information. Foodways can only access data that is stored locally on a user’s smartphone (e.g. photo albums) with the user’s express consent. Due to anonymised location and tracking data, it is not possible to identify specific users or individuals.

Data will only be disclosed to government agencies if required by law.
Retention and deletion of your data

If you download the App again during this period, you can use the same login details and access your stored data. If you do not use your account during this period, we will contact you so you can decide if you wish to keep this information.
