Privacy Statement Better Life label Foundation
The Better Life label Foundation (BLLF) processes the personal data of participants in our label scheme, of business relations and of subscribers to our newsletter. Even if you are just a visitor to our website, please be aware that your personal data may be processed.
Many of the participants in the Better Life label scheme are companies and organisations. Some of them are a natural person. Processing of the personal data of natural persons has been governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) since 25 May 2018. New participants and private individuals can subscribe to our newsletter via the business section of our website www.beterlevenkeurmerk.nl .
You have subscribed to our newsletter as a private individual
When you subscribe to our newsletter, you enter your name and email address. We save this data on our server. The e-mail addresses are shared with third parties in order to send the newsletter. Your personal data will be saved until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. At that moment, your personal data will be deleted. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of the newsletter.
We will only send you a newsletter if you have given your consent (when you subscribed). You may withdraw your consent to receive the newsletter in any newsletter. Depending on the moment you withdraw your consent, you will no longer receive a newsletter from us.
Secondary participants receive the newsletter as standard (see below).
You are a participant in the Better Life label scheme
The registration of primary participants, usually (poultry) farmers, is done by a so-called chain manager. The chain manager processes the data of primary participants and shares it with the Better Life label Foundation.
The chain manager registers the following personal data:
- Your company name.
- Location details of each branch
- Branch number UBN/KIP or the Chamber of Commerce registration number
- Phone number
- Email address
You will be informed about all aspects of participation, relevant news and amendments to the criteria through our newsletter. We do not send our newsletter directly to primary participants. Your chain manager can arrange for the newsletter to be forwarded. You can also subscribe directly to the newsletter.
We process this personal data on the grounds of legitimate interest. The legitimate interest in processing your personal data is your participation in the Better Life label scheme. The regulations of participation prescribe that we assess your company to verify whether you meet the criteria for the Better Life label. In order to observe this provision, we require the personal data stated.
When you are a participant in the Better Life label scheme, your personal data will be processed as follows:
To correctly register your company in our system and list it in the register on our website, you will be asked to provide:
- Your company name. If your company has more than one site, each location or site must be registered separately.
- The correct address details of the place of establishment of your company (not a postal address)
- The branch numbers (UBN/KIP) and/or Chamber of Commerce registration number of your location/place of establishment

- We will use your email address for business correspondence, the newsletter and, if applicable, as a login code for our system.

- We also require your telephone number (and the contact person’s telephone number) for business contact by telephone with the BLLF and CBs. This form of contact usually concerns criteria, amendments, inspections and audits, planning, products, recipes, communication etc.
You will be informed about all aspects of participation, relevant news and amendments to the criteria through our newsletter. As a registered participant you will receive our newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking the link at the bottom of the newsletter or via the relevant link on the website.
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is the performance of your agreement with the Better Life label Foundation. The regulations of participation prescribe that we assess your company to verify whether you meet the criteria for the Better Life label. In order to observe this provision, we require information about your organisation and the officials involved.
Storing personal data
The personal data will be stored in the administrative system of the BLLF and used in the register on the FBLL website. Both are managed and controlled by the BLLF and are facilitated by specialised companies.
Sharing personal data
The personal data will be shared with your suppliers and your customers and with the applicable certification body for the purpose of inspections and audits. The personal data of all participants in the label scheme will also be published in a public register on our website. The personal data of primary participants will be anonymised before publication (UBN/KIP, place of establishment, status and scope(s)).

The personal data we register at registration and during your participation will be stored for a retention period of up to seven years after the termination of the agreement.
