2. You and Us

Welcome to Dineable. Formally, we are DietaryDNA, LLC (“DietaryDNA,” “we,” “us,” and “our”). We provide a dietary profile management system that enables individuals to manage their diets and also connect with caterers, restaurants, and other hospitality providers (“Hospitality”) that accommodate the users’ diets. We provide our services online, including via mobile applications, websites, electronic mail, texts and other communications (collectively, the “Services”). Some of the Services are provided via our parent sites at and (the “Dineable Sites”).

We use the term “user” or “you” or “your” to mean any user of our Services, whether or not the user has registered with us. We use the term “registered user” to refer to anyone who has registered with us.

A registered user may register with us on his or her own behalf, or on behalf of other people. There are two types of registered users. A “representative” is a user who is authorized by a company or organization, such as a business, caterer, restaurant, or other Hospitality provider (“Company”). An “individual” is a person who registers and uses the Services for the person’s own use, and not as part of a Company. Any user who does not register with us is an “unregistered user”.

If you register on behalf of a Company or another individual, then you warrant that you are authorized by that Company or individual to do so, and that you have the right to bind that Company or individual to these Terms; otherwise, you will be binding only yourself to these Terms. These Terms apply to each user.

Individual users may use the Services to track their diets and the diets of others, including their food restrictions and the food restrictions of their families. All such information is treated as your Content, as discussed below. Individual users may share their Content with caterers, restaurants, and other Hospitality providers to determine the best menu items consistent with their diets, as well as which menu items they should avoid. Each user may allow another user to connect as a “friend”, which permits both users to share their dietary profile and other Personal Information and Content with each other, and with hospitality providers.

businesses, including operating hours, addresses, credit cards and other forms of payment they accept, and other information.

If we sell or otherwise transfer part or the whole of DietaryDNA or our assets to another organization (e.g., a merger, acquisition, or reorganization), your Personal Information such as user name and email address, User Content and any other information collected through the Services may be among the items sold or transferred. You will continue to own your User Content, but the license you grant to us in the Terms may be transferred to others.

4. Your Right to Review, Request Changes, and Disclose Personal Information

Subject to applicable laws and regulations, each user may inspect and receive a copy of his or her Personal Information as stored in the Services. In rare circumstances, we may deny a request, and we may provide you with an explanation. If we deny your request, you may request a review by another professional, who will be chosen by DietaryDNA, and we will comply with the outcome of the review.

Subject to applicable laws and regulations, the Personal Information you provide to us remains completely under your control. If you believe the Personal Information we have is incorrect or incomplete, you may in writing request an amendment to your Personal Information. We will approve or deny each request, and notify you of our decision. If approved, we will amend the Personal Information. We will also make a reasonable effort to notify people to whom the Personal Information was released. In the case of a denial, we will provide the reason for the denial and instructions on how to appeal.

Any information or User Content that you voluntarily disclose for use of the Services, such as your user name, your Personal Information or your User Content, may become available to the public if you release it to other users or to the general public. Once you have shared your Personal Information or your User Content with other people, or otherwise made it public, that Personal Information and your User Content may be re-shared by others.

5. Children

Our Services are not directed to persons under age 18. We have a managed user feature that allows parents to managed the accounts of their children. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under 18, and you become aware that your young person has provided us with Personal Information or User Content without your express consent, please contact us at and we will remove the information or User Content, and we will terminate the young person’s account. You may then establish an account that you manage for your child or guardian.

6. Changes to this Privacy Statement

We may modify our Privacy Statement from time to time on prior written notice sent to the email address we have for you. For any user who has not provided us with an email address, the revised Privacy Statement will become effective no less than ten (10) calendar days after posting on the Services. If you choose not to be subject to a revised version of this Privacy Statement, then you may terminate your account with us.

7. Different Locations, Different Laws

The laws and regulations that address privacy rights and responsibilities (collectively, “Laws”) are different from one to another. Indeed, some of the Laws do or do not apply depending on different factors, including:

  • Location or residence of the user.
  • Location or residence of the individual that is the subject of the Personal Information (“Data Subject”).
  • Location or residence of the person or organization that employs or contracts with the Data Subject.
  • Location of each server or other machine where the Personal Information is received, stored, processed or forwarded to.
  • Location of the relevant office of DietaryDNA.

Several of the Laws that concern unregistered users, registered users, and DietaryDNA are discussed in this Section, but these are not all of the Laws that may apply. In addition, if there is any conflict or ambiguity between the statements made in this Privacy Statement and an applicable Law, then the Law will control.

7.1 United States Federal Laws

Several of the federal Laws in the United States may apply to the Personal Information collected by us.

Currently, all Personal Information of users resident in the United States is stored on servers and other machines physically located within the United States.

Currently, HIPAA does not apply to the Services as we are neither a covered entity nor a business associate (as those terms are used in HIPAA).

7.1.2 Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”)

Currently, COPPA does not apply to the Services. Each registered user and other user must be 18 years of age or older. We have a managed user feature that allows parents to manage the accounts of their children. As noted in this Privacy Statement, if we learn of any registered user is under the age of 18, or if any parent or guardian of a user under the age of 18 contacts us, we will close that user’s account and remove all information provided by the individual from our Services.
