We store your personally-identifiable data on our servers which are operated by Amazon Web Services. This information will be stored so long as you maintain an account with us.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT UPON LOG-IN
When you log into our service, your computer automatically provides your Internet Protocol (IP) address (this is not your email address and cannot be used directly to contact you), information about the request, and certain information about the capabilities of your computer.
We may use this automatically provided information for analytical purposes, to help diagnose errors, and to identify abuse of our systems.
USE OF EMAIL ADDRESSES
When you create an account you will receive a one-time email message with your account information. We will send you a weekly notification email when plans are posted. We will also send you receipts for payments via email. We may contact you by email from time to time to notify you of updates to the services or other related matters which may be of interest to you. If we do, we will provide a clear method to opt-out of future messages which are not account, meal plan, or payment related. Otherwise, you will receive email from us only in response to a message or request from you.
SOCIAL MEDIA FEATURES AND WIDGETS

This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, processing your payments, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. You may opt out of our release of your personally-identifiable information to third parties by contacting us here. If you opt out, some services may not be available to you.
