Update Newsletter - June 2018

Date: 
June, 2018

If you live in the EU, you will have been deluged by emails as a result of new data protection regulations that came into force at the end of May. Businesses, including organisations like IFFO, have for many years had to protect any personal data they hold but must now make it clear what they hold and for what it is used. For members of the public, this is a good thing as many will be worried about the amount of information about us that is now collected, stored and often sold to others. Just searching for a product on Google means your email address can be sold to advertisers and you might receive unwanted messages offering their products or services. For lawyers, it is also good news as thousands of small businesses scramble for advice on how to comply with the regulations.

At IFFO we have never sold information about our members but have reviewed our Privacy Policy – you will have received an email from us with the updated version and explaining what information we store and what it is used for. Any personal information will be deleted if requested and we will only keep information that is used and needed to provide our services. We are also happy to answer any questions you have so please get in touch if you want more information.

One of the databases we keep is for conference registrations and you will be pleased to know you can / can shortly (delete) register for the 2018 IFFO Annual Conference in Rome (15th – 17th October). One of the highlights this year will be a panel of senior executives and commentators from the press and aquaculture industry, giving their perspective on the marine ingredients industry and the challenges we face. As usual we are offering Early Bird discount rates so make the most of the saving and book early!
