Sushi Chef Agency endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within 45 days of its receipt. If Sushi Chef Agency requires more time (up to 90 days), Sushi Chef Agency will inform You of the reason and extension period in writing. If You have an account with us, Sushi Chef Agency will deliver our written response to that account. If You do not have an account with us, Sushi Chef Agency will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at Your option. Any disclosures Sushi Chef Agency provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response Sushi Chef Agency provides will also explain the reasons Sushi Chef Agency cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, Sushi Chef Agency will select a format to provide Your personal information that is readily useable and should allow You to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance.

Sushi Chef Agency does not charge a fee to process or respond to Your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If Sushi Chef Agency determines that the request warrants a fee, Sushi Chef Agency will tell You why Sushi Chef Agency made that decision and provide You with a cost estimate before completing Your request.

To the extent we sell your personal information as the term “sell” is defined under the California Consumer Privacy Act, you have the right to opt-out of the sale of your personal information by us to third parties at any time. You may submit a request to opt-out by emailing us at

Please note that it may take up to 10 business days for us to process opt-out requests.

This notice is for people who are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Our processing of personal data of people who are in the EEA is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (the “GDPR”), which applies from May 25, 2018. The GDPR requires us to provide certain information to you about your personal data, which we refer to in this notice as your personal information.

We are the data controller for the Services. For our contact information, please see above. 

Personal information gathered through cookies is used for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. Other than information described in our Privacy Policy, the only information collected through our website is personal information provided voluntarily by visitors for the purpose of receiving additional information about the Services or registering for our Services.

Generally, we process personal information provided by visitors through our website on the basis of consent.

We may also process personal information on other bases permitted by the GDPR and applicable laws, such as when the processing is necessary for us to comply with our legal obligations.

We process the following information when provided voluntarily by our website visitors: name, email address (business e-mail address preferred), postal address and/or country,  resume, telephone number (again, business number preferred).

We use various service providers to manage our website and provide services. Our service providers change from time to time. Note that our service providers have entered into contracts with us that restrict what they can do with your personal information. If you would like specific information about our service providers who have received your information, please contact us and we will provide that information to you.

Our main offices are based in the USA and that is where we process personal information collected through our website. When you provide personal information to us, we request your consent to transfer that personal information to the USA. The USA does not have an adequacy decision from the European Commission, which means that the Commission has not determined that the laws of the USA provide adequate protection for personal information. Although the laws of the USA do not provide legal protection that is equivalent to EU data protection laws, we safeguard your personal information by treating it in accordance with this GDPR Privacy Notice. We take appropriate steps to protect your privacy and implement reasonable security measures to protect your personal information in storage. We use secure transmission methods to collect personal data through our website. We also enter into contracts with our data processors that require them to treat personal information in a manner that is consistent with this Notice.

How long we retain personal information varies according to the type of information in question and the purpose for which it is used. We delete personal information within a reasonable period after we no longer need to use it for the purpose for which it was collected (or for any subsequent purpose that is compatible with the original purpose). This does not affect your right to request that we delete your personal data before the end of its retention period. We may archive personal data (which means storing it in inactive files) for a certain period prior to its final deletion, as part of our ordinary business continuity procedures.

You have the right to request access to your personal data, to have your personal data corrected, restricted or deleted, and to object to our processing of your personal data. You also have the right of data portability, which means that you can request that we provide you (or a third party you designate) with a transferable copy of personal information that you have provided to us. Your rights may be subject to various limitations under the GDPR. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, or if you have any concerns about our processing of your personal data, please contact us.

You have the right to file a complaint concerning our processing of your personal data with your national (or in some countries, regional) data protection authority.  The EU Commission has a list here:
