The PopDish™ app values your trust and respects your privacy—and is committed to protecting them. It is owned and operated by Oneloa Ventures, LLC.
Our mobile app and online website are intended for individual adults, not businesses, who reside in and use it only in the United States of America.
PopDish does not intend to collect information from children or anyone under the age of 18 (or 21 in States where that is the age of majority). If you do not meet these age limits, you should not provide information on the app or our website, and should ask your parent or guardian to do so for you if they desire to do so.
Note to EU/Swiss users: Residents of the European Union or Switzerland who use this app should not expect, and are not intended, to have privacy or data protection available under their local laws.
Information We Receive or Collect
We collect or may receive from you certain personal information when you sign up for the services, specifically, your name, email address and telephone number.
We may also collect and receive from you information you have discretion about providing to us (either by your mobile device or computer settings) or choices you make when you register, specifically, location of your mobile device or computer, and personal food allergies, and diet, dining, and eating preferences you may or may not specify.
We also may receive from you and collect any information you submit to us such as food or restaurant ratings, reviews, photographs you upload, restaurants you add or like, menu items you add or like, other users you follow or subscribe to within the Service, and information about food and restaurants you provide.
Contests and/or Sweepstakes: PopDish may offer contests or sweepstakes on the PopDish website or the app. Because the rules and terms of each contest or sweepstake can vary, all information about each contest or sweepstake will be clearly posted during the event. All contests and sweepstakes are conducted in full accordance with United States federal and state laws. When registering for a contest or sweepstake, PopDish requests certain personal information. At a minimum, the required information includes name and email address; in some cases, the user must answer mandatory survey questions about a range of other personal data. The information gathered in the entry form is used to:
- Verify the entrant’s identity;
- To send the entrant an email notification that their entry has been received;
- To contact winners and/or prize recipients; and
- To compile general, non-personal demographic information.
Surveys: Occasionally PopDish may conduct on-line or in-app user surveys or polls to improve our Services or food or restaurant products. We may sometimes share the aggregated demographic information from these surveys with our business affiliates, partners or restaurants. We never share information about specific individuals, or your personal identifiable information, with any third party.
Customer Support (phone, online chat or email): If you contact PopDish for customer support, we will need to collect certain personal, product information to resolve your question or concern. Such information is then stored in a customer contact log, so that if you contact us again, we have a record of your past service history.
