- the types of cookies we use and how you can reject these cookies;

- your rights in relation to your information.
At Gold Tech Nutrition we take your privacy seriously. We operate on the principle that your personal information belongs to you and only you can decide who you want to share it with and why. This is fundamental to the way we work and we’re committed to providing a secure environment for you to store your personal information and share it with others when you want to.
