Privacy Policy

We want you to feel comfortable when you visit or use our Service (the services that we make available though those websites and apps). We also understand that you may have some important questions for us about what information we collect when you use our Service, why we collect that information, and how we may use and disclose it to others. We've created this Privacy Policy to help answer those questions. By using our Service, you are indicating to us that you agree to our collection, use and disclosure of your information, as described in this Privacy Policy.

What Information Is Collected?

Here's what we collect from you when you use the Service:

  • User-Provided Information: When you use the Service, and specifically when you do things like enter items.
  • Third-Party Login Functionality: We allow users with accounts on third-party services, such as Facebook and Google, to log into the Service using functionality that those third parties provide (such as Facebook Connect and Google's OpenID-based authentication mechanism). By using this Facebook or Google functionality to log into the Service, you permit us to access and use specific identifying information related to your Facebook or Google account. While these services make a variety of information available, Grocery List Bot will associate only your e-mail address or other unique user account identifier with your Grocery List Bot account.
  • If you access the Service using mobile apps, like Telegram you do not need to provide your login credentials, as your mobile device allows this integration automatically. By providing those credentials or installing the mobile apps, you are agreeing that we can access and store the information that the other service's functionality contains, including personally identifiable information.
  • Communications: When you communicate with us, for example through our, we collect your email address and the contents of the communication. In addition, we may provide or enable communications with you through third party services and those third party services may provide us with information about you and the content of your communications. For example, when you interact with the Grocery List Bot on a third-party service such as Facebook Messenger or Telegram, that third-party service may collect your contact information and the content of those communications and share this information with Grocery List Bot. We do not own or operate these third-party services, and you should review the terms of use and privacy policies of such services to make sure you are comfortable with the ways in which they use the information you share with them.
  • "Automatically Collected" Information: Like many websites and mobile apps, when you use the Service we may automatically record certain information about your visit from your web browser or our mobile app such as your IP address, the pages of the service you view, or details regarding the searches you run on the Service, such as what you are searching for, the date and time when you initiated a search, and the location from which you initiated the search. We collect and may use this information to understand and analyze the aggregate or "big picture" usage trends and preferences of our users.
  • "Cookies" Information: One form of "automatically collected" information we record is information stored by "cookies." When you use the Service, we may send one or more cookies to your computer or your mobile device. We use both "session" and "persistent" cookies to collect, store, and sometimes track various types of information. A session cookie is one that disappears after you close your browser or our mobile app. While a persistent cookie remains after you close your browser or the mobile app (and may be used by your browser or the mobile app when you later return to the Service), persistent cookies generally can be removed. You can review the appropriate "Help" file in your Web browser or your mobile device to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings.

How Grocery List Bot uses this information:

Grocery List Bot uses the information you provide or that we collect to keep this great thing going—that is, to develop, operate, maintain, enhance, and provide the Service, to develop new products and services, and to customize and target content that may be more interesting, relevant or useful to you, including advertisements, and for other administrative purposes. Here are some examples of how we may use the information you provide or that we collect:

  • We may communicate with you via e-mail or another form of electronic notification (Messaging apps) regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Service.

How Is the Information Shared or Disclosed?

We may provide personally identifiable information to third parties for their use in helping us perform our internal business functions. These are things like or performing maintenance, security, data analysis, e-mail transmission and processing, or data hosting on our behalf. We will do our best to require these third parties to maintain your information securely, to not use it for purposes other than providing services to us, and to refrain from disclosing the information except when required by law. Grocery List Bot may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that disclosure is necessary to: (1) protect Grocery List Bot and others from fraudulent, abusive, predatory, or unlawful uses or activity; (2) investigate and defend Grocery List Bot against any legal claims or threats; (3) protect and defend the rights or property of Grocery List Bot; (4) take action on user complaints. If there is a change in ownership of Grocery List Bot, including through a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to another entity, we may sell or otherwise transfer all information you provide to us, including personally identifiable information, to that entity. Grocery List Bot may disclose aggregated, anonymized, or other types of non-personally identifiable information, including "automatically collected" and "cookies" information that is non-personally identifiable, to third parties for various purposes.


You may, of course, decline to share certain information with Grocery List Bot, in which case Grocery List Bot may not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the Service. For instance, you may delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from the Service (see "Cookies" Information above for details).

Do Not Track

Our website does not currently respond to a Do Not Track ("DNT") or similar signal as it awaits the results of efforts by the policy and legal community to determine the meaning of DNT and the proper way to respond.

Third-Party Services

Our Service includes links to third-party services. When you follow the links to third-party services, you should understand that our Privacy Policy no longer applies, and that the third-party's privacy practices may not be the same as ours. In addition, our Service may incorporate features provided by third parties and you may interface with Grocery List Bot through third-party services, including, for example, the third-party communications services described above. Please keep in mind that we do not own or operate these third-party services, and you should review the terms of use and privacy policies of such services to make sure you are comfortable with the ways in which they use the information you share with them.

The Security of Your Information

Grocery List Bot employs various physical, managerial, and technical safeguards that are designed to help protect the integrity and security of our systems and to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personally identifiable information that we control. For example, we scramble your password during transmission, and limit the employees who can access personally identifiable information to a small set who need such information to perform their jobs. While we take reasonable measures to protect your information, we do not, however, guarantee the security of your information. If Grocery List Bot learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically, either by email on via our website, so that you can take appropriate protective steps. These methods of communicating with you are only examples. We retain the right to decide which method we will use to notify you of a security breach, and will do so consistent with our legal obligations.

How Will You Know Whether Grocery List Bot's Privacy Policy Has Changed?

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do, we will also revise the "last updated" date at the bottom of the Privacy Policy. If we substantially revise the policy (and we will use our discretion to determine if the revision is substantial) we may send emails to our registered users containing a link to the updated policy. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy from time to time to stay informed about how we are protecting the personally identifiable information we collect. If you continue to use our Service after we post an update to this Privacy Policy, this will indicate your acceptance of the update.
