Information Collection and Use:

Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Site, Application, services, features and content, to administer your use of the Site (together, the "Service") and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Site.

Personally Identifiable Information:

When you register with us through the Site and become a Member and when you choose to start sharing meals or place an order, or when you wish to contact another Member, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Identity Information"). Identity Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, phone number, email address and home postal address, but does not include your credit card number or billing information. In order to process some of your transactions through the Site and Application, we may also ask for your credit card number and other billing information ("Billing Information") (Identity Information and Billing Information together, "Personal Information"). Some Personal Information is required, like your name and email address, and other Personal Information is optional, like your date of birth. We reserve the right to require address confirmation for address included in Listings. We use your Personal Information to provide the Service and administer your inquiries.

We collect Personal Information in connection with your registration to join the Service. You can register to join via the Site by completing the required forms. You can also register to join by logging into online accounts you may have with third party service providers ("SNS") (e.g. Facebook) - each such account is hereinafter referred to as a "Third Party Account" - via our Site as described below. As part of the functionality of the Site, you may link your MealTango Account with Third Party Accounts, by either: (i) providing your Third Party Account login information to MealTango through the Site; or (ii) allowing MealTango to access your Third Party Account, as is permitted under the applicable terms and conditions that govern your use of each Third Party Account. You represent that you are entitled to disclose your Third Party Account login information to MealTango and/or grant MealTango access to your Third Party Account (for use for the purposes described herein), without breach by you of any of the terms and conditions that govern your use of the applicable Third Party Account and without obligating MealTango to pay any fees or making MealTango subject to any usage limitations imposed by the applicable SNS. If you decide to register by logging into a Third Party Account via our Site or Application, we will obtain the Personal Information you have provided to the applicable SNS (such as your "real" name, email address, profile picture, names of SNS friends, names of SNS groups to which you belong, other information you make publicly available via the applicable SNS and/or other information you authorize MealTango to access by authorizing the SNS to provide such information) from your Third Party Accounts and use that information to create your MealTango Account and MealTango Account profile page and you will become a Member. Depending on the Third Party Accounts you choose and subject to the privacy settings that you have set in such Third Party Accounts, you understand that by granting us access to the Third Party Accounts, we will access, make available and store (if applicable and as permitted by the SNS and authorized by you) the information in your Third Party Accounts so that it is available on and through your MealTango Account on the Site. We will only obtain information about your "friends" or people with whom you are associated in your Third Party Account if the privacy settings of such people with the applicable SNS allow our access to their data.

Cookies:

Like many websites, we use "cookies" to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your computer's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies for two purposes. First, we utilize persistent cookies to save your login information for future logins to the Site. Second, we utilize session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Site, to better understand how you interact with the Site and to monitor aggregate usage by MealTango Users and web traffic routing on the Site. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer when you log off from the Site and then close your browser. Third party advertisers on the Site may also place or read cookies on your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of the Service.

Phishing:

Identity theft and the practice currently known as "phishing" are of great concern to MealTango. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request your credit card information, your MealTango Account ID or login password in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

Our Policy Toward Children:

The Site and Application are not directed to individuals under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from individuals under 18.
