Avara Foods Privacy Notice

This Privacy Notice sets out what personal data we, Avara Foods Ltd, and its subsidiaries (Freemans of Newent Ltd., Faccenda Foods Ltd. and Faccenda Foods Lincs Ltd.) hold about you and how we collect and use it.

Avara Foods Ltd. is the “controller” for the purposes of data protection law. This means that we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use personal data about you.  

This Privacy Notice applies from 25 May 2018, when the General Data Protection Regulation comes into force. We may update this Privacy Notice at any time.

We are required by data protection law to give you the information in this Privacy Notice and it is important that you read it carefully. Contact details for Avara Foods that may be responsible for processing your data are available at

We may transfer Personal Data among Avara companies, subject to the terms of this Policy. We do not sell Personal Data

In order to process customer applications, we will supply that customer’s personal information to credit reference agencies (CRAs) and they will give us information about them, such as about their financial history. We do this to assess creditworthiness and product suitability, check the customer’s identity, manage their account, trace and recover debts and prevent criminal activity. We will also continue to exchange information about customers with CRAs on an ongoing basis, including about their settled accounts and any debts not fully repaid on time. CRAs will share customer information with other organisations. The identities of the CRAs, and the ways in which they use and share personal information, are explained in more detail at

Your rights and contact information: 

You have a number of legal rights relating to your personal data, which are outlined here:

The right to make a subject access request. This enables you to receive certain information about how we use your personal data, as well as to receive a copy of it and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

The right to request that we correct incomplete or inaccurate personal data that we hold about you.

The right to request that we delete or remove personal data that we hold about you where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).

The right to object to our processing your personal data where we are relying on our legitimate interest (or those of a third party), where we cannot show a compelling reason to continue the processing.

The right to request that we restrict our processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.

The right to request that we transfer your personal data to you or to another party, in a structured format. This right applies in respect of data that you have provided where our legal ground for using the data is that it is necessary for the performance of a contract or that you have consented to us using it (this is known as the right to “data portability”).

If you would like to exercise any of the above rights, please contact

Note that these rights are not absolute and in some circumstances we may be entitled to refuse some or all of your request.

It is also important for you to know that you have the right to make a complaint at any time to the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO), the UK supervisory authority for data protection issues. Details of how to contact the ICO can be found on their website:
