Our Commitment to Your Privacy
The Site monitors people's email inboxes for receipts to determine what they have purchased. The Site then compares those purchases to a database of products that have been recalled or have other safety issues. The Site then alerts users when a product they purchased has been recalled. The services provided by the Site are referred to as the "Service."
What information do we collect?
When you use the Service, we will have access to information provided by your email service provider or Amazon account, potentially including your email address, name, photo, location, and demographics. We will also request access to analyze your emails so that we may identify receipts and gather associated information (product, brand, dates, merchant, purchase method, etc.).

Do We Use Google AdWords or other remarketing methods?
We may use the Google AdWords or other remarketing services to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our Site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network.
You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page.
How Do We Respond to "Do Not Track" Signals?
We may track your browsing behavior to better tailor suggestions and information for you
Some third party sites also keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you.
You can opt out of certain tracking by adjusting the settings on your browser. However, many websites (including the Site) may not respond to such signals.
There are also browser extensions that may block tracking. Again, they may not be effective in all cases.
How long do we store your information?
We intend to store your information and User Content indefinitely. However, if you wish to remove your User Content please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will make reasonable efforts to do so. Please be aware that the User Content may be backed up on our system and we may not remove all instances of it. Also, User Content may already have been transmitted to a third party at the time of your request.
What about links to other websites?
We may provide links to or compatibility with other websites. However, we’re not responsible for the privacy practices employed by those websites or the information or content they contain.
How do we protect your information?
We use appropriate physical, electronic, and other procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. However, please be aware that the Internet is an inherently unsafe environment, and that hackers are constantly working to defeat security measures.
Thus, we cannot guarantee that your information will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed, and you accept this risk.
How can you protect your information?
We urge you to take steps to keep your personal information safe by not sharing it with others.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets.
