Our privacy notice governs our privacy practices when you are using our websites,,, and our mobile and web apps, called Carb Manager, hereinafter and collectively referred to as the services.

Our privacy notice tells you what personal data and non-personal data we collect from you, how we collect them, how we protect them, how we share them, how you can access and change them, and how you can limit our sharing of them. Our privacy notice also explains certain legal rights that you have concerning your personal data. Any capitalized terms not defined herein will have the same meaning as those defined elsewhere on our website.


The terms “us”, “we”, and “our” refer to the owner of this Website.

‘NON-PERSONAL DATA’ (NPD) means any information that is not personally identifiable.

‘PERSONAL DATA’ (PD) means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person can be identified directly or indirectly by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural, or social identity of that natural person. PD is, in many ways, the same as Personally Identifiable Information (PII). However, PD is broader in scope and covers more data.

‘SENSITIVE PERSONAL DATA’ (SPD) means a consumer’s social security, driver’s license, state identification card, or passport number; a consumer’s account log-in, financial account, debit card, or credit card number in combination with any required security, access code, password, or credentials allowing access to an account; a consumer’s exact geolocation; a consumer’s ethnic or racial origin, religious or philosophical beliefs, or union membership; the contents of a consumer’s mail, text messages, and email unless the business is the intended receiver of the communication; a consumer’s genetic data; the processing of biometric data to uniquely identify a consumer; personal information collected and analyzed about a consumer’s health; sex life or sexual orientation. Sensitive personal information that is "publicly available" is considered sensitive personal information or personal information.

We also retain the right to transfer your PD if our company files for bankruptcy and some or all of our assets are sold to another individual or company.

Community Discussion Boards, Blogs, or Other Mechanisms

Our services may offer the ability for users to communicate through online community discussion boards, blogs, or other mechanisms. If you choose to post on these discussion mechanisms, you should use care when exposing any PD, as such information is not protected by our privacy notice, nor are we liable if you disclose your PD through such postings. Also, PD, which you post on our services for publication, may be available worldwide on the Internet. We cannot prevent the use or misuse of such information by others.


We retain your PD if it is necessary to provide our services and or products to you and to fulfill the purposes outlined in our privacy notice, subject to any legal obligations that may require a longer retention period. PD associated with your account will be kept until it is no longer necessary to provide our services and or products or until you ask us to delete it. 

The criteria used to determine our retention periods include:

  • The length of time we have a continuing relationship with you and provide the services and or products to you that you requested.
  • Whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them).
  • Whether retention is advisable considering our legal position (such as, for statutes of limitations, litigation, or regulatory investigations).

PD about you that is no longer necessary to provide our products or services may be de-identified and aggregated with other NPD to provide insights, such as statistics on the use of our services and or products. This information will be deidentified from your name and other personally identifiable information.


If you make any postings on our services that contain information about third parties, you agree that you have permission to include that information. While we are not legally liable for the actions of our users, we will remove any postings about which we are notified if such postings violate the privacy rights of others.

Our services do not obey such settings when transmitted to and detected by our services. You can turn off tracking features and other security settings in your browser by referring to your browser’s user manual.

PD that we collect from you may be stored, processed, and transferred among any countries in which we operate. The European Union has not found the United States and some other countries to have an acceptable level of protection of PD under Article 45 of the GDPR. Our company relies on derogations for specific situations as defined in Article 49 of the GDPR. If you are a European Union user or a user from another country, with your consent, your PD may be transferred to the United States or other countries when you request information from us. When you buy goods or services, we will use your PD for the performance of a contract with you. Wherever we transfer, process, or store your PD, we will attempt to apply reasonable safeguards to protect it. We will use the information we collect from you by following the practices described in our privacy notice. Also, we enter into data processing agreements and standard contractual clauses when appropriate. By using our website, you agree to the transfers of your PD described within this section.


We reserve the right to change this privacy notice at any time. If our company decides to change this privacy notice, we will post those changes on our services so that our users and customers are always aware of what information we collect, use, and disclose. If at any time we decide to disclose or use your PD in a method different from that specified at the time it was collected, we will provide advance notice by email sent to the email address on file in your account or notify you with an in-app notice. Otherwise, we will use and disclose our users’ and customers’ PD in agreement with the privacy notice in effect when the information was collected. In all cases, your continued use of our services, services, and products after any change to this privacy notice will constitute your acceptance of the change. If you have questions about our privacy notice, please contact us through the information at the top of this privacy notice.
