We collect information to provide better services to all of our users. We collect information in two ways:
Information you give us. For example, we require you to provide your email and name to make users feel safer and to provide a more personable and unique experience. If you want to take full advantage of the features, this information is necessary.
Information we get from your use of our services. We collect information when you use the services we provide. The information includes:
We collect device-specific information. Foodster may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your Foodster Account in order to provide you with a better experience (such as push notifications).
When you use our services or view content provided by Foodster, we automatically collect and store certain information in logs.
When you use Foodster services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. We use various technologies to determine location, including IP address, GPS, and other sensors that may provide Foodster with information on nearby devices.
We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as application data caches.
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Foodster and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content, such as giving you more relevant search results.
If you have a Foodster Account, we may display your name, and actions you take on Foodster in our services.
When you contact Foodster, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. One of the products we use to do this is Google Analytics.
Foodster processes personal information on our servers in many countries around the world. We may process your personal information on a server located outside the country where you live.
People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaninful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:
Our service only works well if you share information with others. The Foodster service relies on your name and location to have a meaninful impact on user experience and satisfaction.
Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.
We do not share personal information with companies, organizations and individuals outside of Foodster unelss one of the following circumstances applies:
With your consent
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Foodster when we have your consent to do so. We will require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
For legal reasons
We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Foodster if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Foodster, our users or the public as required or permitted by law.
We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information publicly and with our partners – like publishers, advertisers or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services.
