What is the list of personal information collected and why?

FoodMate ensures that it asks for the minimum possible personal information in order to serve its users. For now, we do not ask for your physical address, email id, passwords, phone number, birth date or any financial information. Hence, we’d like to ask you to never share any such details with anyone pretending to use our name.

However, we do track the following device information:

Gadget Info - This helps us show you the website according to your device’s needs. Desktop and mobile make for 100 percent of our end users.

Network Data - IP address of our consumers help us tackle the server-related issues. Also, our system tries to read the demographic details. We do this in order to understand our audience in a better way so that in turn, we may improvise on our offerings and provide a better and updated user experience.

How is the information used?

Trust our words when we say it, that our users’ privacy is of the greatest concern to us and hence we commit not to allow any third party usage (we’ll discuss the exception further) of the information that we collect. We are strictly not into the selling or renting of your info. However, we may release personal information if required by law, search warrant, subpoena, court order or fraud investigation, as you may well understand the sensitivity of the issue.

  • We use Google Analytics, an authorised service provided by Google, to collect the data around how our users engage with our website and hence improvise accordingly.

How is the information shared, if any?

  • When we optimise our website, we are bound to share the data with partners like Google who help us provide services.
  • The vendors who are responsible for showing ads on our platform also make use of the info to show better and targeted ads.
  • In case of a legality, or law.

Do we have a privacy protection for children?

FoodMate is a user-friendly website that is family friendly. We do not post, show or promote anything that is obscene or unacceptable. Our target audience lies in almost every age group and hence we do not really require any such policy.

How long do we keep the data in memory?

The comments made by users are generally kept for an indefinite time until or unless the user decides to delete them. So yes, the user is equipped with the power to delete them. The other info remain with us as long as we find the need of keeping them.
