Our servers are located in the United States. Although we currently do not intentionally market our Services outside of the U.S., if you are accessing our Website from outside the U.S., please be aware that your information may be transferred to, stored, and processed by us in the U.S. and by those third parties with whom we may share your Personal Information (see "WILL YOUR INFORMATION BE SHARED WITH ANYONE?" above), which may be in the U.S. or other countries. These countries may not necessarily have data protection laws or other similar laws as comprehensive as those in your country. We will, however, take all necessary measures to protect your Personal Information in accordance with this Notice and applicable law.
We will only keep your Personal Information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this Notice, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements). No purpose in this notice will require us keeping your Personal Information for longer than necessary.
When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize such information, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under 18 years of age. By using the website, you represent that you are at least 18 or that you are the parent or guardian of such a minor and consent to such minor dependent’s use of the website. If we learn that personal information from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records. If you become aware of any data we may have collected from children under the age of 18, please contact us at Support@intueat.com.
Consent: If you consent to processing, you may withdraw your consent at any time. You may be required to cease using our Services where your consent is necessary to perform essential aspects of our Services.
Direct Marketing: You have the choice to opt-out of or withdraw your consent to marketing communications. You may exercise your choice via the links in our communications or by contacting us.
Other Rights: Based on the applicable laws of your residence location, and whether we are subject to those laws, you may have the right to request access to the Personal Information we collect from you, change that information, delete it in some circumstances, or exercise other rights. To exercise any applicable rights you may have with regard to your Personal Information, please submit a request by email to Support@intueat.com. We will respond to your request within the time period required by applicable law.
Opting out of email marketing: You can unsubscribe from our marketing email list at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the emails that we send or by contacting us using the details provided below. You will then be removed from the marketing email list — however, we may still communicate with you, for example, to send you service-related emails that are necessary for the administration and use of your account, to respond to service requests, or for other non-marketing purposes. To opt out of SMS or MMS marketing, reply “STOP” to any message you receive. To otherwise opt out, you may send an email to email Support@intueat.com.
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems and mobile applications include a Do-Not-Track ("DNT") feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. We do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the "Shine The Light" law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to Support@intueat.com.
If you are under 18 years of age and reside in California, you may have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on our website. To request removal of such data, please contact us using the contact information provided below, and include the email address associated with your account and a statement that you reside in California. We will make sure the data is not publicly displayed on the website, but please be aware that the data may not be completely or comprehensively removed from all our systems (e.g. backups, etc.).
We implement and maintain reasonable security measures to safeguard the Personal Information you provide us. However, we sometimes share Personal Information with third parties as noted above, and though we may enter contracts to help ensure security, we do control third parties’ security processes. We do not warrant perfect security and we do not provide any guarantee that your Personal Information or any other information you provide us will remain secure.
We may update this Notice from time to time. The updated version will be indicated by an updated "Modified" date and the updated version will be effective as soon as it is accessible.
