All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
Blocks cannot be deleted as per nature of a blockchain, but the information that the block adds by itself is arbitrary and works as a link to the creator’s profile. If such profile is deleted, then the link is severed and although the block still exists, it will be orphaned and kept only as an anonymous reference for linked blocks.
Please remember that the information on the blocks are immutable which means that they cannot be changed in any way which means that unless you do want to permanently be linked to your persona or company no personal or contact data should be included in the block.
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

More simply put
Every company has its terms. These are ours.
Chefchain is the world’s first ever open & searchable food blockchain. Simply said the blockchain is a data storage technology that stores data in blocks in a secure and serial system to assure immutability, chronology and ownership, in this case, the data blocks involved are food information. Chefchain is fundamentally a public platform for your creativity. To provide our , that includes both the storage itself of your information as described above, and possible customization and integration consultancy , we need to be able to identify you and your interests. Some of the things we show you are promoted by advertisers. As part of our Services we try to ensure that even promoted content is relevant and interesting to you. You can identify promoted content because it will be clearly labelled.
More simply put
Chefchain helps you discover and do what you love. It’s customized to you. We need to know what you like to make everything on Chefchain relevant and interesting to you.
You cannot use Chefchain if you’re under 13 (or older in some countries). Also, if you are using Chefchain for work, you need to set up a business account.
Chefchain allows you to post content, including recipes, data, product information, photos, comments, links, and other materials. Anything that you post or otherwise make available on Chefchain is referred to as “User Content”. You retain all rights in, and are solely responsible for, the User Content you post to Chefchain.
If you post your content on Chefchain, it (still) belongs to you.
You grant Chefchain and our users a non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide license to use, store, display, reproduce, save, create derivative works, perform, and distribute your User Content on Chefchain solely for the purposes of operating, developing, providing, and using Chefchain. Nothing in these Terms restricts other legal rights Chefchain may have to User Content, for example under other licenses. We reserve the right to suspend User Content, or change the way it’s used in Chefchain, for any reason. This includes User Content that we believe violates these Terms, our Community Guidelines, common decency or any other policy.
If you post your content on Chefchain it’s public, people and others can search it, save it & use it. Don’t post porn or spam or be a jerk to other people on Chefchain.
Due to the nature of the Blockchain, content cannot be deleted without destroying the very nature of Blockchain. For that matter, content will never be deleted but it can be archived and made unpublished so as to be invisible to searches. Nevertheless, the data will remain to retain the Blockchain integrity.
As for the details of users and their profile information, that, following termination or deactivation of your account, or if you remove any User Content from Chefchain, we may still keep it for a reasonable period of time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Chefchain and its users may retain and continue to use, store, display, reproduce, create derivative works, perform, and distribute any of your User Content that other users have stored or shared on Chefchain.
If you choose to post content, you give us permission to use it to provide and improve Chefchain. Copies of content shared with others may remain even after you delete the content from your account or if you decide to archive it.
We value hearing from our users, and are always interested in learning about ways we can develop Chefchain. If you choose to submit comments, ideas or feedback, you agree that we are free to use them without any restriction or compensation to you. By accepting your submission, Chefchain doesn’t waive any rights to use similar or related feedback previously known to Chefchain, or developed by its employees, or obtained from sources other than you.
We can use your suggestions to make Chefchain better.
We respect copyrights. You should, too.
You can help us fight spammers by keeping your passwords safe.
Chefchain and Blocks may have links to content off of Chefchain. Most of that stuff is awesome, but we’re not responsible when it’s not.
Chefchain is provided to you mostly for free. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, but we will provide appropriate notice.
If we are sued because of something your business does on Chefchain, you have to pay our costs.
Chefchain specifically disclaims any and all warranties and conditions of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, and non-infringement, and any warranties arising out of course of dealing or usage of trade.
Chefchain takes no responsibility and assumes no liability for any User Content that you or any other person or third party posts or sends using our Service.

If you’re a consumer in the EU, we don’t exclude or limit any liability for death or personal injury caused by Chefchain’s gross negligence or willful misconduct or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation.
Unfortunately, people post bad stuff on services like Chefchain. We take that kind of thing seriously but you still might run into it before we have a chance to take it down. If you see bad stuff, please report it to us.
If we cause damage to you and you’re a consumer in the EU, the above doesn’t apply. Instead, Chefchain’s liability will be limited to foreseeable damages arising due to a breach of material contractual obligations typical for this type of contract. Chefchain isn’t liable for damages that result from a non-material breach of any other applicable duty of care. This limitation of liability won’t apply to any statutory liability that cannot be limited, to liability for death or personal injury caused by our gross negligence or willful misconduct, or if and to exclude our responsibility for something we have specifically promised to you.
We are building the best service we can for you, but we can’t promise it will be perfect. We’re not liable for various things. If you think we are, let’s try to work it out like adults.
Arbitration is a more informal way to resolve our disagreements than a lawsuit in court. For instance, arbitration uses a neutral arbitrator instead of a judge or jury, involves more limited discovery, and is subject to very limited review by courts. Although the process is more informal, arbitrators can award the same damages and relief that a court can award. You agree that, by agreeing to these Terms, Dutch law governs the interpretation and enforcement of this provision, and that you and Chefchain are each waiving the right to a trial by court that has jurisdiction. The arbitrator has exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating to the interpretation, applicability, or enforceability of this binding arbitration agreement. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of these Terms and the termination of your Chefchain account.
Any arbitration will be administered by the Netherlands Arbitration Institute (“NAI”) under the Dutch Arbitration Act then in effect for the NAI, except as provided herein. You can find their forms at www.nai-nl.org. Each party will be responsible for paying any NAI filing, administrative and arbitrator fees in accordance with NAI Rules.
NOTHING IN THESE TERMS OF SERVICE SHALL AFFECT ANY NON-WAIVABLE STATUTORY RIGHTS THAT APPLY TO YOU. To the extent any claim, dispute or controversy regarding Chefchain or our Service isn’t arbitrable under applicable laws or otherwise: you and Chefchain both agree that any claim or dispute regarding Chefchain will be resolved exclusively in accordance with Section 12 of these Terms.
If you’re a consumer in the EU, Section 11 doesn’t apply to you.
If you are a consumer in the EU, this won’t deprive you of any protection you have under the law of the country where you live and access to the courts in that country.
Amsterdam is beautiful this time of year. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, that’s what’s so great! Anyway, you’ll have to sue us here.
In the EU, this applies if you’re a merchant, but not if you’re a consumer. If you are a consumer in the EU, you can sue us in your home courts.
We reserve the right to determine the form and means of providing notifications to you, and you agree to receive legal notices electronically if that’s what we decide. We may revise these Terms from time to time and the most current version will always be posted on our website. If a revision, in our discretion, is material, we’ll notify you. By continuing to access or use Chefchain after revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the new Terms. If you don’t agree to the new terms, please stop using Chefchain.
If we’re making a big change to the terms, we’ll let you know. If you don’t like the new terms, please stop using Chefchain.
These Terms, and any rights and licenses granted hereunder, may not be transferred or assigned by you, but may be assigned by Chefchain without restriction. Any attempted transfer or assignment in violation hereof shall be null and void.
If you’re a consumer in the EU, either you or Chefchain may assign this agreement, and any rights and licenses granted under it, to a third party. In case of such an assignment by Chefchain, you are entitled to terminate the agreement with immediate effect by deactivating your account. Chefchain will provide you with reasonable notice of any such assignment.
These Terms, together with the Policies and any amendments and any additional agreements you may enter into with Chefchain shall constitute the entire agreement between you and Chefchain concerning the Service. If any provision of these Terms is deemed invalid, then that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary, and the remaining provisions of these Terms will remain in full force and effect.
No waiver of any term of these Terms shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or any other term, and Chefchain’s failure to assert any right or provision under these Terms shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
These Terms are a contract between you and Chefchain B.V., a Dutch company with its registered office at Beemsterstraat 190, (1024 BJ) Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Who you deal with depends on where you live.
These Terms are effective as of 1st of December, 2021
