HOW WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones,
and to protect What2eat and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content.
We may use the name you provide for your What2eat Profile across all of the services we offer that require a What2eat Account.
In addition, we may replace past names associated with your What2eat Account so that you are represented consistently across
all our services. If other users already have your email, or other information that identifies you, we may show them your
publicly visible What2eat Profile information, such as your name and photo.
If you have a What2eat Account, we may display your Profile name, Profile photo, and actions you take on What2eat or on third-party
applications connected to your What2eat Account (such as reviews you write and comments you post) in our services, including
displaying in ads and other commercial contexts.
When you contact What2eat, we keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your
email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.
We use information collected from cookies and other technologies to improve your user experience and the
overall quality of our services.
Our automated systems analyze your content (including emails) to provide you personally relevant product features, such as
customized search results, tailored advertising, and spam and malware detection.
We may combine personal information from one service with information, including personal information, from other What2eat
services – for example to make it easier to share things with people you know. Depending on your account settings, your
activity on other sites and apps may be associated with your personal information in order to improve What2eat’s services

ACCESSING AND UPDATING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate

on your request.
We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a
new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for
instance, requests concerning information residing on backup systems).
Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate
effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because
of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers
and may not remove information from our backup systems.
