Personal Information does not include summarized, anonymized, or other non-personally identifiable information. Summarized information includes, for example, information that we collect about a group or category of products, services, or users that is not personally identifiable. Anonymized information includes, for example, information from which individual identities are removed.
We collect information that you provide to us in a variety of ways, including:
When you use our Services, we may collect some information automatically, including:
We may collect this information passively using standard technologies including server logs, browser cookies, and transparent images (also known as web beacons).
We may collect information about the general location of your mobile device when you use our Services. Your mobile device’s operating system may give you the option of enabling or disabling the collection of location information.
Our primary use of your information is to provide the best possible service to you. We may use the information we collect for the following purposes:
We may use your Personal Information to send you emails we believe may be of interest to you, such as periodic newsletters about our Services. You may opt out of receiving any such emails by unsubscribing: Simply follow the instructions in any such email.
We may share your Personal Information in the following situations:
In addition, we may provide non-personally identifiable information (i.e. not your Personal Information) relating to your location, items on your lists, your interactions with our Services, your mobile device and other identifiers, mobile device model, IP address, etc. to our third party advertising partners (for example, Google, Apple, Yahoo!) in order to (i) retrieve and display targeted advertisements to you in connection with your use of our Services, and (ii) analyze the information for commercial purposes.
We use various security measures to help protect your information from accidental loss, disclosure, and misuse. These measures include review of our system logs, off-site backups, data encryption, and security software. However, no data security measures can be guaranteed to be completely effective. We cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information we collect. You transmit information and use our Services at your own risk.
Our servers are located, and your information is stored, in the United States of America. If you choose to use our Services from outside the U.S.A., then please be aware that you are transferring your Personal Information outside of your country and into the U.S.A. for storage and processing. By providing your Personal Information to us through your use of our Services, you agree to that transfer, storage, and processing in the U.S.A. You should be aware that the privacy and data security laws of the U.S.A. may in some cases provide fewer protections than those of your own country.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European Union regulation intended to protect the data and privacy of individuals in the European Union. We process your “personal data” as defined by the GDPR (i.e., data that can be traced back to you as an individual), and we are therefore required to justify why we are lawfully permitted to process this data. Simply put, we collect and process the data that you give us (your email address, your shopping lists, your recipes) in order to provide you with a multi-user shopping list app. Doing so is the core purpose of our Services. We therefore have a “legitimate interest” (as defined by the GDPR) in processing this data (see Article 6, paragraph 1(f)). We do not process personal data that is incidental to the Services (such as your demographic data). Please feel free to contact us if you have questions about our GDPR compliance.
