Privacy Policy

We respect and are committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy lets you know how personal data collected through this site is processed and used by Global Salmon Initiative (“GSI”, “we” or “our”) which is the controller for your personal data.

This Privacy Policy does not cover personal data that may be collected through other websites or by Global Salmon Initiative in other venues.

Collection and Use of Personal Data

We mainly collect personal data that we get directly from you:

  • When you sign up for our GSI newsletters: your name and email address. GSI newsletters are sent every few weeks and contain news, updates and insights from the GSI. You can unsubscribe from these emails and therefore withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us on or by clicking unsubscribe at the bottom of the newsletter.
  • When you contact us through the contact form: your name, email address, telephone (optional) and your communication with us.

We will store your personal data only for purposes of:

  • Sending you our newsletters,
  • Answering your questions through the contact form, and,
  • Improving and optimizing our website.

The processing of your personal data is based:

  • On your consent, e.g. when you subscribe to our newsletters. You can withdraw your consent for GSI to store your personal data at any time by contacting us at or by clicking unsubscribe at the bottom of the newsletter.
  • On our legitimate interests, e.g. to gather statistics on the usage of our website.

Disclosure of Personal Data

Global Salmon Initiative will not sell, share or rent your personal information to others except with your consent. We only share your information in order to provide a service you have requested; or to enable a third party to provide services to us (e.g. a mailing platform, a marketing or an IT service provider) and then only to provide those services. We also will disclose personal information to enforce our rights, to prevent fraud or when required by law, judicial process or other legal order to do so.

Some data may be stored or transferred outside the European Economic Area (EEA) for the purposes described above. It is possible that this transfer occurs via service providers established outside EEA territory or because data are stored on a server located outside or accessible outside the EEA.

In this respect, GSI is committed to ensuring an adequate level of protection for your data, in particular via an adequacy decision under article 45 General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for the country to which data are transferred (including certifications under the EU-US Privacy Shield), by concluding standard contractual clauses under article 46.2 GDPR, or by any other appropriate safeguards.

Storage of your data

We keep the data we collect as long as necessary to provide our services and for the purposes described above. In doing so, we take into account the time that has passed since our latest contact with you.

In addition, you have the right to request a rectification of your data or the deletion of your data. You can send your request by e-mail to
