1. Information Collection and Use
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services and to enable our users to enjoy, use, and easily navigate our Services. To provide you with a consistent user experience and to recognize you as a user across our Services, we may collect and combine data as described below; for example, data collected when you visit the Site or the App from one browser or device may be combined or linked with data collected when you visit the Site or App from a different browser or device, which may also be combined or linked with product usage data.
Generally, we collect two types of information: Personal Data and Other Information. "Personal Data" is information that can be used to identify or is reasonably linkable to you as an individual, and may include Usage Information (as defined below). "Other Information" is information that is not linkable to you as an identifiable individual, including information that has been de-identified or aggregated with data from other users.
Personal Data we may collect. When you use the Services, we may collect the following Personal Data:
-Your contact information, such as your first and last name, email address, mailing address and phone number.
-Your Whatz2eat information including your user name, account number and your encrypted Whatz2eat password;
-Information you voluntarily provide about yourself such as allergies, dietary restriction, food preference;
-Your usage information, as described further below; and
-Your mobile device model and ID number, user settings, location (if you enable this feature, and information about your use of the app when applicable.
Your Personal Data is processed only to the extent necessary to pursue the purposes set out in this Privacy Notice. To learn about how long Whatz2eat keeps your Personal Data, see Section 3, Data Retention.
Many of our services and features require some Personal Data. If you choose not to provide the necessary Personal Data, you may not be able to use certain services or features. If you choose not to share your Personal Data, features that require personalization will not work for you.
Use of Personal Data. We use your Personal Data to provide our Services and administer your inquiries. For example, when you create an account through the Services and become a Registered User, we may ask you for Personal Data so we can create your account or populate your profile (see "Registered Users" below). We may also use your Personal Data to update our Services or features, troubleshoot, protect our Sites, Apps, and users, or provide support to you.
We also use your Personal Data to improve and develop our products and services, personalize our products, better understand consumers' interests related to our products and services, make recommendations to you, and send you relevant offers. We may also use your Personal Data to send you Whatz2eat newsletters, marketing or promotional materials, or other information that may be of interest to you. Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent to send you these communications. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive them, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or update your user preferences information.
Other Information. Other Information will be considered Personal Data if it is combined with other data in such a way that enables you to be identified. However, where Other Information is taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information, it will not be treated as Personal Data. We may use Other Information for any purpose, unless prohibited by law.
We may combine your Personal Data with Other Information and aggregate it with information collected from other users to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Services and to analyze and understand how our Services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically — for instance, to deliver information to you according to your preferences or restrictions.
Usage Information. When you visit or use the Services or use a Whatz2eat website or mobile application that has Whatz2eat features, we may automatically record information about your online session ("Usage Information"). This Usage Information may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to our Site, pages of our Site or the App that you visit (or of the site you visited that had the Whatz2eat feature), the time spent on those pages, information you search for, access times and dates, the model and device ID number of your mobile device, user settings, location (if you enable this feature), and statistics and information about your use of the App. We use this information to provide and improve the Services, develop new products, and offer products and services that may be of interest to you.
We also use Usage Information to monitor and analyze use of the Services, for technical administration, to secure the Site and App and protect those who visit the Site or App, to improve functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Services to our visitors' needs. For example, some of this information is collected so that when you revisit the Services, we will recognize you and can serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests. Some of the Usage Information (like your IP address) is treated as Personal Data.
