This Privacy Policy applies to the MeaVana Software, Website, Apps and Services. Please read it carefully. The User information we gather or process is used solely for providing MeaVana functionality and to improve the quality and security of the Services. Your information is not sold to third parties.

Account Information

Your name, email, account settings, and customization data (such as to-dos, bookmarks, screen layout, default displays, etc.) are collected, transferred and stored securely by us. This information is used solely for your usage within MeaVana. This information is not shared with any third parties, except as specified in this policy.

Payment Information

If you purchase or subscribe to any Paid Services, your credit card number, credit card expiration date, security code, name, country and postal code are required. All payment processing will be done through a PCI-compliant third party. When paying by a credit card, your card details do not pass through our servers (they are sent directly to the payment services provider). When you subscribe to a Paid Service, upgrade your services, request changes to your Paid Services, or contact us with queries or requests about your Services (such as cancelling, refunding, or changing payment details), certain authorized members of MeaVana’s support team may view certain aspects of your payment-related information contained in the payment provider’s database through the dashboard they provide to us. This is limited to billing name, billing address, postal code, the last four digits of credit card(s), and credit card expiry dates. This information will only be accessed by us upon your request.

Data Accessed through Web Extension APIs

Web Extension APIs used within Chrome Extensions, Safari Extensions, Edge Add-ons, and Firefox Add-ons have well defined narrow permission levels that are enforced by the respective Web Browsers, that restrict the information MeaVana Software has access to within your Browser. The MeaVana extension can only access specific information that you have explicitly granted permission for. We cannot and do not track your browsing history. MeaVana Software may request additional optional permissions when you enable specific MeaVana features. When you enable a feature that requests an optional permission, your Web Browser will make it clear what permission(s) are being requested. The feature will be accessible only if you choose to allow the requested permission(s).Your location information is accessed to provide MeaVana’s weather feature. This information may be sent to our weather provider API to determine your closest weather station. This information is not stored. You can prevent your location and/or IP address from being sent directly to our third-party weather provider by turning off the Weather feature in your MeaVana “settings” menu. Your bookmarks and most-visited websites information is accessed and stored solely for use in providing MeaVana’s bookmarks/ links feature.

Feature Usage Data

We gather and log data on how our users access and use MeaVana in order to understand users’ preferences and to improve the content, features and overall experience of MeaVana. For example, we may log actions like clicking on more information about a photo or a quote, liking or favoriting any content, utilizing the to-do list, clicking on the details about weather, etc. Some of the usage data we collect is sent to Google Analytics in a de-identified manner (this means, no identifying information is sent that that could be linked to a User’s account). We also make use of Google Analytics’ IP anonymization feature to prevent your IP from being associated with your usage data.
