Meal Plated (“Meal Plated”) operates mealplated.com and may operate other websites. It is Meal Plated’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.
Like most website operators, Meal Plated collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Meal Plated’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Meal Plated’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Meal Plated may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Meal Plated also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on mealplated.com blogs/sites. Meal Plated only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Meal Plated’s websites choose to interact with Meal Plated in ways that require Meal Plated to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Meal Plated gathers depend on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at mealplated.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Meal Plated are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Meal Plated collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Meal Plated. Meal Plated does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Meal Plated may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Meal Plated may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Meal Plated does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Meal Plated’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Meal Plated will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, Meal Plated discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or another governmental request, or when Meal Plated believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Meal Plated, third parties or the public at large.
