What information does Copy Me That collect and use?
If you sign up using email then we save the email address that you provide us. If you sign up using Facebook then we save your Facebook name, profile image, and (optionally) email address. If you provide us with a profile name, profile description, or profile image (displayed on your shared recipes) then we also save these. You can always update your email address and profile information. Your account password is stored safely (encrypted, hashed) in our database.
Location and device information
When you visit a page or perform an action in Copy Me That then we log what device, browser, and operating system you are using. We also log your IP address, which can be used to determine your general physical location. We also collect this information when you copy a recipe using the Copy Me That button. This information helps us understand how you and others are using Copy Me That, which helps us improve our service. We also collect this information to help ensure the security of our systems.
App browser information
The Copy Me That app contains an in-app browser that can be used for general browsing. We do not collect any information about your browsing activity in this browser. The app does save your browser search terms, but these are only saved on your own device.
Copy Me That button
We register the web pages from which you copy recipes. When you copy a recipe, all information on that web page may be uploaded and saved, not just the recipe. When you copy a recipe from Facebook, only the selected post is uploaded. The Copy Me That button does not collect any information until you choose to use it on a webpage.
Your entered information
We save any information that you enter into your account. This may, for example, include your shopping list items, meal plans, and recipe edits. If you purchase a cookbook then we save your shipping information.
Payments that you make to Copy Me That are handled by either Stripe (credit cards) or Paypal. These services collect information necessary for you to make your purchase. They also provide some information back to Copy Me That, a subset of which we save in our own database. For credit card purchases, the information that Copy Me That saves is the last four digits of your credit card number. For Paypal purchases, the information that we save is your name and email address as provided to us by Paypal. We save this information in case there is ever any issue or question regarding your purchase.
Where is my information stored? Who can access it?
Copy Me That stores your information on servers located in the United States. This includes the "live" information, as well as back-ups. We create and store back-ups to keep your information safe. Images may also be cached (stored) on servers in other countries for faster viewing.
We use Amazon SES for sending mass emails (such as newsletters). We use Google Gmail for sending other emails. This means that your email address may be stored by these services. If you send us an email then your email address, as well as the contents of the email, will be stored by Google Gmail.
We use Google Analytics, which means that Google can collect information about your browsing activity on Copy Me That. We use New Relic APM and Fabric Crashalytics to help us analyze and improve system performance. We use Cloudflare to help keep our site secure.
If you make a payment then your information will be collected by either Stripe (credit cards) or Paypal.
If you purchase a cookbook then we provide your shipping address to the printer who, in turn, provides it to the shipping agent (such as UPS).
Recipe and image ownership
You retain ownership of your own recipes and images. Your entered information is private unless you choose to share it. For example, your recipes are by default private, but you can choose to make a recipe public in the Copy Me That Community. If you choose to make a recipe or image public then Copy Me That may use it in our outreach campaigns. For example, we may show an image on our Pinterest page that links to your public recipe. Copy Me That cannot control who uses information that you choose to make public.
If you share a recipe that originally came from a different website, then it is only the image, ingredients, and original link that are shown in the Community. Websites can choose to not have their recipes shared in the Community. For more information on this, please see our FAQ for Bloggers.
Copy Me That isn't perfect and may (will!) make mistakes. For example, a recipe may be copied incorrectly or a mistake may be made when merging ingredients in the shopping list. We prioritize keeping your data safe, but information could still conceivably be lost. Copy Me That cannot be held liable for problems or costs caused by such errors (except where required by law). We have a download feature where you can create a backup of your recipes at any time.
We retain the right to delete your account. If we do delete your account, or if Copy Me That should cease to exist, then we will make a good effort to ensure that you receive a copy of your recipes and images. (If your account is closed due to misuse then we make no such promises.) We have already made it possible for you to create your own backup of your recipes at any time.
If you are located in a non-EU country (as determined by your IP address), then we'll (most likely) subscribe you to our newsletter when you create your Copy Me That account. If you are not auto-subscribed then you will need to actively subscribe if you wish to receive our newsletter. Copy Me That may unsubscribe you from our newsletter at any time.
You can always unsubscribe (or subscribe) in your Settings. Every newsletter contains an unsubscribe link.

Changes to this policy
We reserve the right to modify this policy at any time. If we make material changes to the policy, then we will notify you by email and/or by means of a notice on our home page.
