The International Egg Commission takes your privacy very seriously. Please read this Policy carefully to see how we will treat the personal information that you provide to us either when using our Site or in other circumstances when we collect data from you. We will take reasonable care to keep your information secure and to prevent any unauthorised access or use of it. We process all information in accordance with the applicable data protection legislation. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time and the change will take effect once the revised Privacy Policy is available on our website. Please refer to this policy each time you submit your personal information.

(b) enter competitions;
(c) register to receive information; or
(d) purchase goods or services from us

The information that you are asked to provide will vary depending on the reason for the collection. In some instances, for example, if you purchase goods or services from us, the provision of certain information will be mandatory. Please note that if you choose to participate in any discussion forum on the Site you may disclose personal information about yourself to other participants. If you do so, this is at your own risk.

We, our subsidiary companies and selected third parties (such as our commercial partners) would like to send you marketing information, by post, e-mail, or SMS. We will only do this if you have indicated that you are happy to receive such information when you submit your details to us.
