Our server software stores metadata about searches and requests for food metadata. This information is stored in logs and sent to Amplitude for analysis. This information is used to improve our food database and identify problems affecting the customer experience.
"Ask AI" Queries
User and Device Identifiers
We use randomly generated identifiers in the App to anonymously identify devices and users. These identifiers may be synced to your other devices via your iCloud account. These identifiers are associated with data sent to our servers and other third parties, including Amplitude, Sentry, Typesense, OpenAI, and RevenueCat.
Our server software and any third-party services may store basic technical information, such as your IP address, in temporary memory or logs. This information is used for operation and maintenance purposes.

The contents of the food data (including but not limited to the name and brand) may become publicly visible. You may opt-out of future uploads of food data by logging out of the Community Database.

While no online service is 100% secure, we work very hard to protect information about you against unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction, and take reasonable measures to do so.
