3. A Note About Children. We do not intentionally gather Personal Data from visitors who are under the age of 13. If a child under 13 submits Personal Data to Nima and we learn that the Personal Data is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe that we might have any Personal Data from a child under 13, please contact us at

4. A Note to Users Outside of the United States. If you are a non U.S. user of the Site, by visiting the Site or using our Services and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that your Personal Data may be processed for the purposes identified in the Privacy Policy. In addition, your Personal Data may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States, where laws regarding processing of Personal Data may be less stringent than the laws in your country. By providing your data, you consent to such transfer.

5. Types of Data We Collect. “Personal Data” means (a) data that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data, and (b) Test Results that are automatically collected when you use our Products and Application(s), and any additional information (such as the name of the restaurant and the food item tested, ratings of the restaurant, etc.) that the user may add to the Test Results, to the extent that such data is associated with or linked to data that allows someone to identify or contact you (“Food Data“). “Anonymous Data” means data that can not publicly be linked or associated with your Personal Data; Anonymous Data does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Data, including but not limited to Food Data, and Anonymous Data, as described below.

(a) Information You Provide to Us.

  • We may collect Personal Data from you, such as your first name, last name, e-mail, city, state, password, and food preference related information (e.g., foods you avoid and your food identity) when you create an account to log in to our network (“Account“).
  • We will also ask you to create a public profile which will be used in public areas of our Services to identify the Food Data that you collect and any postings that you may upload to the Services (“Profile“). The name you use in your Profile can be your real name or a pseudonym. You can also decide whether or not to include additional personal information that may include but is not limited to your gender, age, food identity and foods you avoid in your Profile. Any information you include in your Profile will be available for public viewing by our other users. Once displayed on publicly viewable web pages and in the Application(s), that information can be used and collected by others. We cannot control who reads your postings or what other users may do with information that you voluntarily post or include in your Profile. Once you have posted information publicly, while you will be able to request that Nima modify or delete such information pursuant to Section 9(e) below, you will not be able to modify or delete such information to the extent it has been cached, collected, and stored elsewhere by others (e.g. search engines).
  • If you tell us where you are (e.g., by allowing your mobile device to send us your location), we may store and use that information to tag the location where you tested your food and provide you with location-based information and advertising. If you want to deactivate this feature, you can deactivate GPS on your mobile device or remove permissions for the Application(s) to have access to your location.
  • Our Application(s) let you store your Application preferences. We may associate these choices with your Account or the mobile device, and you can edit these preferences at any time in our Application(s).
  • When you order our Products or Services on our Site, we, or our payment processors, will collect all information necessary to complete the transaction, including your name, phone number, credit card information, billing information and shipping information. This information may be shared with third parties who help process and fulfill your purchases.
  • If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.
  • When you use our Product and upload the Sensor test results to our Application(s), we will ask you to provide information about the test (e.g., the restaurant where you tested your food, the food item tested, and a rating of the restaurant). This information, together with any information that you include in your Profile, will be made available to all users of the Application(s) in a public area of our Services.
  • When you post content (i.e., text, images, photographs, messages, reviews, ratings, tips, comments or any other kind of content), the information contained in your posting will be stored in our servers. If the information is posted in a public area of the Services, other users will be able to see it, along with any other information that you include in your Profile. The information that you provide in the content you post in public areas of our Site and Application(s), and your Profile, will be visible to others, including anonymous visitors to the Site and Application(s).
  • We retain information on your behalf, such as files and messages that you store using your Account.
  • When you post tips and comments within the Application(s) or on our Site the information contained in your posting will be stored on our servers, and other users will be able to see it.
  • When you participate in one of our surveys, we may collect additional profile information.
  • If you participate in a sweepstakes, contest or giveaway on our Site or in our Application(s), we may ask you for your e-mail address and/or home number (to notify you if you win or not). We may also ask for first and last names, and sometimes post office addresses to verify your identity. In some situations we may need additional information as a part of the entry process, such as a prize selection choice. These sweepstakes and contests are voluntary. We recommend that you read the rules for each sweepstakes and contest that you enter.
  • We may also collect Personal Data at other points in our Site or Application(s) that state that Personal Data is being collected.

(b) Information Collected via Technology.

  • Information Collected by Our Products. If you use our Products, our Products will collect Food Data. When you sync our Sensor with our Application(s), (i) the Product will upload Food Data to our Application(s) and (ii) our Application(s) will note that you used a Capsule to test for the Food Data.
  • Information Collected by Our Servers. To make our Site and Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP“) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.
  • Information About Your Mobile Device. If you use our Services on your mobile device, including through our Application(s), we may collect your Sensor’s battery level, the version of iOS used by your device, the serial number and firmware version of your Sensor, the signal strength of your mobile device, notifications regarding errors related to your Sensor or mobile device, your Test Results, and other relevant diagnostics that come from syncing the Sensor with your mobile device, such as temperature and time of readings.
  • Log Files. As is true of most websites and applications, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP“), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to provide, modify, or enhance the Services; analyze trends; administer the Site; track users’ movements around the Site; gather demographic information about our user base as a whole; and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests. We may also link this automatically collected data to your Personal Data to identify and fix errors that you experience.
  • Cookies. Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site. This type of information is collected to make the Site more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.
  • Pixel Tags. In addition, we use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, web beacons, or web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to Cookies, that are used to track online movements of web users. In contrast to Cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in web pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user. We do not tie the information gathered by Pixel Tags to our users’ Personal Data.
  • Collection of Data by Advertisers. Nima does not sell any Personal Data to advertising platforms, data brokers, or information resellers. Certain third parties may automatically collect information about your visits to this and other websites, your IP address, your ISP, the browser you use to visit our Site (but not your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number). They do this by using Cookies, Pixel Tags or other technologies. Information collected may be used, among other things, to deliver advertising targeted to your interests and to better understand the usage and visitation of our Site and the other sites tracked by these third parties. This policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, Cookies or Pixel Tags in third party ads, and we encourage you to check the privacy policies of advertisers and/or ad services to learn about their use of Cookies and other technologies. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here: or
  • How We Respond to Do Not Track Signals. We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that might enable consumers to opt out of tracking on our Site.
  • Mobile Services. We may also collect non-Personal Data from your mobile device if you have downloaded our Application(s). This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you. Examples of information that may be collected and used include how you use the Application(s) and information about the type of device you use. In addition, in the event our Application(s) crashes on your mobile device, we may receive information about your mobile device model software version and device carrier and associate such information with your Personal Data so that we can identify and fix bugs and otherwise improve the performance of our Application(s).
  • Push Notifications. If you consent to receiving push notifications on your mobile device, we will send push notifications to your mobile device through services such as Apple’s Push Notification Service for iOS devices and Google’s CD2M and Cloud Messaging for Android devices. Both services are standard features of these mobile device operating systems. The privacy policy of the applicable service provider governs the access, use and disclosure of your Personal Data obtained from your use of these services.
  • Analytics Services. We use third party analytics services, including but not limited to Google Analytics (“Analytics Services“), to help analyze how users use our Site and Services. We use the information we get from Analytics Services only to improve our Site and Services. The information generated by the Cookies or other technologies about your use of our Site and Services (the “Analytics Information“) is transmitted to the Analytics Services. The Analytics Services use Analytics Information to compile reports on user activity. The Analytics Services may also transfer the Analytics Information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process Analytics Information on their behalf. Each Analytics Service’s ability to use and share Analytics Information is restricted by such Analytics Service’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. By using our Site and Services, you consent to the processing of data about you by Analytics Services in the manner and for the purposes set out above. For a full list of Analytics Services, please contact us at

(c) Information Collected from You About Others. If you decide to invite a third party to create an Account, visit our Site, download our Application(s), or purchase any of our Products, we will collect your and the third party’s names and e-mail addresses in order to send an e-mail and follow up with the third party. We rely upon you to obtain whatever consents form the third party that may be required by law to allow us to access and upload the third party’s name and e-mail address as required above. You or the third party may contact us at to request the removal of this information from our database. As part of your use of the Services, we provide you the opportunity to connect automatically with your friends. We employ various techniques in order to facilitate friends finding each other on our service, including offering contact importer tools to facilitate adding to your contacts (including contacts in your address book) so that you can more readily ask your contacts to join and communicate with you through the Services. With your permission, we will access your address book, call log and SMS log, and import your contacts’ names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, image, and geographic location to facilitate automatic connection with your friends. We do this only for contact matching to help your friends and you find each other. Also, when you invite friends to the Services, we will access your Address Book and we will import your contacts names and phone numbers in order to facilitate the invitation. The e-mail that is sent to your friends will come from your e-mail address so that your friends know that you want to invite them to visit the Site. We do not store any passwords you provide as part of the contact import process. We also collect some settings that help us to interpret your data, such as the language and keyboard settings that you have established, and the phone’s carrier, mobile network code and mobile country code.

(d) Information You Provide to Social Networking Sites. In the future, the Services may allow users to access social networking services such as Facebook (each an “SNS”) to interact and share Test Results and other content with friends. If you are already logged into the Services and an SNS, when you click on “Connect with Facebook,” or a similar connection on another SNS, you will be prompted to merge your profiles. If you are already logged into the Services but not logged into Facebook or another SNS that we support, when you click on “Connect with Facebook,” or a similar connection on another SNS, you will be prompted to enter your SNS credentials or to “Sign Up” for the SNS. By proceeding, you are allowing the Services to access your information and you are agreeing to the SNS’s Terms of Use in your use of the Services. Conversely, if you are not currently registered as a user of the Services, and you click on “Sign in” using an SNS that we support, you will first be asked to enter your SNS credentials and then be given the option to register for the Services. In this case, we may receive information from the SNS to make it easier for you to create an Account on the Site and show relevant content from your SNS friends. Any information that we collect from your SNS account may depend on the privacy settings you have with that SNS, so please consult the SNS’s privacy and data practices. Any misuse of SNS services or use of excessive and unnecessary language on SNS services, may result in banning a Member, which means his or her Nima account will be suspended.
