Information about personal data we collect
When you register for MealIQ Services, we collect personal data from you such as: your email address, first and last name, allergens/intolerance and your food preferences.
When you continue using the MealIQ Services you regularly upload personal data onto your account such as, depending on your use of the Services; your calorie intake, the meals you saved, ingredients bought, and also in the future, weight loss goal/weight gain goal, activity/diet routines, your body measurements and BMI.
In an ongoing effort to improve our Services, additional personal data may be collected from you. In such cases, we will notify you when the personal data collection takes place.
Our use of your personal data
Data processing necessary to provide the Services
As a part of offering the Services to you we process your personal data that you provide us with at the time of registration, such as:
First and last name
Date of birth
Country of residence
Device identifier, i.e. information on what device, IP-address etc you use to register and log on to the Services
As you continue to use the Services, you will regularly provide Meal IQ with further personal data. It follows from the nature of the Services that we must process such data that you upload to the Services to enable the Services, for example, we will process your saved meals plans, shopped ingredients, macro and micro nutrition intake, and weight data to enable the monitoring and presentation of your personal goals. This processing is a pre-requisite for us being able to offer the Services to you.
If you connect to the Services using a Third-Party Application (e.g., Apple Health Kit, Google Fit, Facebook) Meal IQ will collect and use your personal information from such Third Party Applications such as your username, name, profile picture, country, hometown, email address, date of birth, gender as well as such health data that you choose to synchronize with Meal IQ’s Services.
Some of the data mentioned above, collected from you and processed by Meal IQ for certain features of the Services, is possible for us to delete and cease processing for the future if you so require, without you having to terminate your use of the entire Services, i.e., not all data (submitted over time by you to us either directly or through third-party services) is required for you to still be able to use the Services. If you want us to cease processing certain data about you under this category, we will inform about the consequences of such cease, i.e., how it will affect your use of the features of the Services.
Customer relationship as a legal ground
It should be noted that marketing sent by Meal IQ to you on the basis of a customer relationship as a legal ground for processing personal data, does not require a consent. Such data will be processed and used in compliance with relevant personal data regulation.
Meal IQ’s Services are based on a profound knowledge of best practice with regard to health. Meal IQ cooperates with nutritionists, behavioral psychologists, personal trainers, stress experts to stay on top of the latest research and science. In addition, Meal IQ analyze the usage of the Services, in order to provide you as a user with the most relevant features of the Services as possible with regard to your personal goals. In analyzing the usage of the Services, Meal IQ will process certain data for so-called profiling. Profiling means processing of your and other users’ personal data to analyze or predict aspects of your use of the Services, behavior and, location in reaching your optimal meal plans and health goals. The data processed will be user habits where we will track actions taken by you such as when you move between screens, press buttons and take actions on the Services. The purposes of the profiling is to monitor how engaged users are in different features of our Services, find out ways to make the Service more effective (fit for purpose) and vary the features or content to better match your individual usage patterns and preferences.
The profiling of your data can also be used as the basis for marketing towards other new potential customers on other platforms than the Meal IQ Services, such as other social media platforms. Please note that this so called look-a-like-process of recruiting new customers does not mean that you will receive any marketing. Nor does it mean that any other third parties will gain access to your data for any other purpose than for Meal IQ to reach new customers, i.e. third party providers (for example social media) will only process your data on behalf of Meal IQ as processors, see further under transfer of data below.
Meal IQ’s processing of your personal data for profiling purposes as described above, does not require any consent as a legal ground to be processed. If this should be the case, i.e. if, under relevant personal data regulation, consent is required for the use as described above, you hereby give your consent to Meal IQ using your personal data as defined above for profiling, for the purpose of improving the Services and for providing customer support.
