Welcome to Ate!
We are really happy to have you and thank you for choosing us as your partner on your healthy journey.
So here we go: First, the most important thing you should know:
We do not depend on ads!
So we don’t sell/share/harvest your data for anything.
We are supported by our wonderful users who are upgrading to our premium accounts for a more complete experience. So your data remains private as it should. (Shameless plug here: Please support us by upgrading to premium! Thank you!)
If you want to share your diary with friends or the outside world, that is your choice. There are various ways to share from within the app, if you choose so. The control remains with you.
If you ever need us to access your data for support questions, we will ask for your permission first.
Once you start using the app, your data is immediately backed up on our servers and you are ready to go. You don’t even need to create an account as long as you are using the same phone! But to make this work, we do need to store a unique identifier to connect your device with the anonymous account created.
Although you could remain on this anonymous account forever, we do recommend that you create a free account with us as it unlocks new features within the app and enables you to access your diary from other/new devices.
Also, it’s important to keep in mind, that while you are using an Anonymous account, we can’t really support data download and deletion, since we can’t verify who you are. However, you can always reset your path from the app to delete your user generated content.
Once you are ready to setup a free account, we just ask for an email address for identification purposes. We do not share this email with anyone and only use it to occasionally contact you when we feel it’s appropriate. (To welcome you or to congratulate for an achievement.) If you do not wish to receive these emails, just hit unsubscribe on the bottom of the email.
We also ask for an optional profile name and photo, so we can better communicate with you. If you use Facebook to log in, we just basically prefill these fields for you and don’t store any other info from Facebook in your Ate profile.
If you ever want your personal data on Ate deleted or exported, just contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do so within 30 days. For more details about our service providers and GDPR, continue reading below.
I hope that gave you a clear overview of what we do with your personal data. If you have any questions or concerns, just drop us an email email@example.com .
Have a wonderful day,
the Ate Team
Ate Service Providers
Above, when we talk about “we”, it refers to our team and our service providers. We are using Google Cloud services for authentication, data storage and hosting. For user support and analytics, we use Google, Mixpanel, Segment, Groove and Intercom. For our ambassador program, we use FirstPromoter to track referrals.
Ate Community Stats
Sometimes we analyze anonymous data collected from the Ate community to share interesting insights with you and the world about eating habits. We always make sure this data does not include personal information and we never share the raw data with outsiders.
Ate and GDPR
We are fully committed to meet the new European GDPR requirements. Continue reading to find out how we support your rights.
Right of portability
If you would ever want to have your data exported, just send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send it to you via a zip file. (We can usually do this within 30 days, after authenticating that it was really you asking for the data.)
Right to access
If you ever have a question about your data, how it’s used or need to change something, just contact us at email@example.com
Right to be forgotten
Data Deletion works in a similar way. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, we will verify that it is you, and we will have all your data deleted from our servers and partners. (Within 30 days.)
If we ever notice any weird activity around your data or in our systems, we will let you know within 72 hours and alert the appropriate authorities. If you notice something strange, please let us know ASAP!
We do our best to always clearly communicate what you are signing up for when we ask you to agree to something within the app. We ask for minimum access needed for the app to run properly. If you ever feel like something was not communicated properly, please let us know.
Terms of Service
Effective as of January 26, 2017, Updated on May 15, 2019
These Terms and Conditions of Use (the “Agreement”) set out the terms on which Piqniq, Inc.

Ownership of the Service and Related Intellectual Property.
All the text, images, marks, logos, compilations (meaning the collection, arrangement and assembly of information), data, other content, software and materials displayed on the Service or used by Piqniq to operate the Service, excluding any User Content (as defined below) is proprietary to us or to third parties. Piqniq expressly reserves all rights, including all intellectual property rights, in all of the foregoing, and except as expressly permitted by this Agreement, any use, redistribution, sale, decompilation, reverse engineering, disassembly, translation or other exploitation of them is strictly prohibited. The mark “Piqniq” is an unregistered trademark and the mark “YouAte” is a registered trademark; both are marks of Piqniq or Piqniq Partner, and they may not be used in connection with any service or products other than those provided by Piqniq, in any manner that is likely to cause confusion among customers, or in any manner that disparages or discredits Piqniq. Any use of such marks, or any others displayed on the Service, will inure solely to the benefit of their respective owners.
Your Registration and User Content.
Right to Use the Service.
Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Piqniq authorizes You to use the Service for Your personal, non-commercial purposes. The Service includes certain premium features and services that Piqniq offers for a fee (“Premium Services”); You are only authorized to use Premium Services if You have paid the applicable fees. You may not remove any copyright, trademark or other proprietary notices that have been placed in the Service. Except as expressly permitted above, modification, reproduction, redistribution, republication, uploading, posting, transmitting, distributing or otherwise exploiting in any way the Service, or any portion of the Service, is strictly prohibited without the prior written permission of Piqniq. The Service is licensed, not sold, and You obtain no rights in any copy of software related to the Service other than the rights described in this paragraph. You agree, and represent and warrant, that Your use of the Service, or any portion thereof, will be consistent with the foregoing license, covenants and restrictions and will neither infringe nor violate the rights of any other party or breach any contract or legal duty to any other parties. In addition, You agree that You will comply with all applicable laws, regulations and ordinances relating to the Service or Your use of it, and You will be solely responsible for Your own individual violations of any of any such laws.
You are solely responsible for obtaining the equipment and telecommunication services necessary to access the Service, and all fees associated therewith (such as computing devices and Internet service provider and airtime charges).
We retain the right to implement any changes to the Service (whether to unpaid or Premium Services) at any time, with or without notice. You acknowledge that a variety of Piqniq actions may impair or prevent You from accessing the Service at certain times and/or in the same way, for limited periods or permanently, and agree that Piqniq has no responsibility or liability as a result of any such actions or results, including, without limitation, for the deletion of, or failure to make available to You, any content or services.
Piqniq offers certain enhanced features of the Services which you can purchase as a monthly, quarterly or yearly subscription (“Subscription”). A description of features associated with Subscriptions is available via the Services. The amounts due and payable by you for a Subscription that you purchase through the Services will be presented to you before you place your order. If you choose to a Subscription via the Services, you agree (a) to pay the applicable fees and any taxes; (b) that Piqniq may charge your credit card for verification, pre-authorization and payment purposes if you purchase via the site, or if you purchase via the App, charge your account with the app store or distribution platform (like the Apple App Store or Google Play) where the App is made available (each, an “App Provider”); and (c) to bear any additional charges that your App Provider, bank or other financial service provider may levy on you as well as any taxes or fees that may apply to your order. You’ll receive a confirmation email after we confirm the payment for your order. Your order is not binding on Ate until accepted and confirmed by Piqniq. All payments made are non-refundable and non-transferable except as expressly provided in these Terms.
Subscriptions Automatically Renew Until You Cancel & How to Cancel Your Subscription
All amounts are payable and charged, for monthly, quarterly or annual subscriptions, at the beginning of the subscription and, because each such subscription renews automatically for an additional period equal in length to the expiring subscription term until you cancel it, at the time of each renewal until you cancel. You must cancel your monthly or annual Subscription before it renews to avoid the billing of the fees for the next Subscription period. If you purchase your Subscription via the Site, you can cancel the renewal of your subscription at any time by contacting us by email at email@example.com. If you purchase your Subscription via an App Provider, you can cancel the renewal of your subscription with the App Provider. You will not receive a refund for the fees you already paid for your current subscription period and you will continue to receive the Services ordered until the end of your current Subscription period. If you have any concerns or objections regarding charges, you agree to raise them with us first and you agree not to cancel or reject any credit card or App Provider charges unless you have made a reasonable attempt at resolving the matter directly with Piqniq. Piqniq reserves the right to not process or to cancel your order in certain circumstances, for example, if your credit card is declined, if we suspect the request or order is fraudulent, or in other circumstances Piqniq deems appropriate in its sole discretion. Piqniq also reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to take steps to verify your identity in connection with your order. Piqniq will either not charge you or refund the charges for orders that we do not process or cancel.
Changes to Price Terms
Piqniq reserves the right to change its pricing terms for Subscriptions at any time and Piqniq will notify you in advance of such changes becoming effective. Changes to the pricing terms will not apply retroactively and will only apply for Subscription renewals after such changed pricing terms have been communicated to you. If you do not agree with the changes to Piqniq pricing terms then you may choose not to renew your Subscription in accordance with the section “Subscriptions Automatically Renew Until You Cancel & How to Cancel Your Subscription.”
You agree that your purchases are not contingent on the delivery of any future functionality or features, or dependent on any oral or written public comments made by Piqniq regarding future functionality or features.
Forums, Chat Spaces and Blogs.
A number of Service features, such as the feature allowing You to share diet information with friends, and any chat areas and blogs, offer opportunities for sharing information with others (the “Interactive Features”). Piqniq does not edit or control User Content that You and other Users post to or distribute through the Interactive Features, and will not be in any way responsible or liable for User Content. Piqniq does not vet or control the Users or other individuals that use the Service or Interactive Features. Piqniq shall not be liable for any loss or damage that any person may suffer as a result of using Interactive Features. All Users use the Interactive Features at their own risk.

Applicable Law and Jurisdiction; Compliance.
All disputes arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Service shall be resolved exclusively by binding arbitration conducted in Wilmington, Delaware before a single arbitrator (the “Arbitrator”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association (the “AAA”) then in effect and the further procedures set forth herein. In the event that the American Arbitration Association is unavailable or unwilling to administer the arbitration, and the parties are unable to agree to a substitute, a substitute shall be appointed by the court. The Arbitrator shall have authority to issue any and all remedies authorized by law. The arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. §§ 2 et seq., and the laws of the State of Delaware without reference to principles of conflicts of laws. Notwithstanding any rules of the American Arbitration Association to the contrary, any claims shall be adjudicated on an individual basis, and YOU WAIVE ANY RIGHT TO BRING ANY CLAIM AS A REPRESENTATIVE OF A PROPOSED CLASS, ON AN AGGREGATED OR MASS BASIS, OR AS A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL, OR TO CONSOLIDATE ARBITRATION PROCEEDINGS WITHOUT THE CONSENT OF ALL PARTIES THERETO. Any award rendered by the Arbitrator shall be final, conclusive and binding upon the parties hereto. In connection with any arbitration proceeding pursuant to this Agreement, unless the Arbitrator shall determine otherwise, each party shall bear its own costs and expenses. Notwithstanding the foregoing, You may at Your option file an individual claim in any small claims court for disputes or claims within the scope of its subject matter jurisdiction if such court has personal jurisdiction. Piqniq does not hereby waive any defense that such jurisdiction may be lacking in Your state. Without derogation of the parties’ obligation to arbitrate as set forth herein, for any claims other than those in small claims court, jurisdiction for any court proceedings arising out of or relating to this Agreement or the Service shall be vested exclusively in, and venue shall be laid in, the state or federal courts sitting in Wilmington, Delaware, except that, following confirmation of an arbitration award in a state or federal court in Wilmington, Delaware, a judgment arising therefrom may be executed in any court of competent jurisdiction.
No delay or omission by Piqniq in exercising any of its rights occurring upon any noncompliance or default by You with respect to this Agreement will impair any such right or be construed to be a waiver thereof, and a waiver by Piqniq of any of the covenants, conditions or agreements to be performed by You will not be construed to be a waiver of any succeeding breach thereof or of any other covenant, condition or agreement hereof contained. As used in this Agreement, “including” means “including but not limited to.” If any provision of this Agreement is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unenforceable, then this Agreement will remain in full force and effect and will be reformed to be valid and enforceable while reflecting the intent of the parties to the greatest extent permitted by law. Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, this Agreement sets forth the entire agreement between You and Piqniq regarding its subject matter, and supersedes all prior promises, agreements or representations, whether written or oral, regarding such subject matter. You agree that the electronic text of this Agreement constitutes a writing and Your assent to the terms and conditions hereof constitutes a “signing” for all purposes. There shall be no third party beneficiaries to this Agreement other than Piqniq Partners. In no event shall Piqniq be liable for any failure to comply with this Agreement to the extent that such failure arises from factors outside Piqniq’s reasonable control.

Collection and Use of Information
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve our Services, to administer your use of the Services (including your Account, if you are an Account holder), and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate our Services.
If you create an Account, we’ll collect certain information that can be used to identify you, such as your email address (“PII”). If you create an Account using your login credentials from one of your SNS Accounts, we’ll be able to access and collect your name and other PII that your privacy settings on the SNS Account permit us to access. If you create an Account through the Services or one of your SNS Accounts, we may also collect your gender, date of birth and other information that is not considered PII because it cannot be used by itself to identify you.
Types of Information Collected
In addition to the above personal information (“PII”), we collect standard information about Ate users such as: “Personal Diet Data” that you enter, including, birthdate, height and weight, sex, and specific details of the foods and drinks that you consume, why you made certain choices and information from any other diary entry you might make. Photos of the meals that you have saved using our Services. Email address and your Ate Password. IP addresses, browser type and your operating system. Pages visited on the Websites referring and exit pages, and the dates and times of the visits. Any additional information relating to you and your use of the Websites, Apps or Ate Services that you provide to use directly through the Websites, Apps or Ate Services. Information that you make publicly available or publicly post using tools made available on the Websites or via the App. Information you may provide in user-to-user messages.
Coaches: If you are a Coach participating in the Ate Coach coaching program you will be asked to provide your email address and to select a password. You may also provide personal information such as your name, the name of your company and your photo.
Information Collected Using Cookies and other Web Technologies
Information Related to Use of the Services
Our servers automatically record certain information about how a person uses our Services (we refer to this information as “Log Data”), including both Account holders and non-Account holders (either, a “User”).

We use Log Data to administer the Services and we analyze (and may engage third parties to analyze) Log Data to improve, customize and enhance the Services by expanding their features and functionality and tailoring them to our Users’ needs and preferences. We may use a person’s IP address to fight spam, malware and identity theft. We also use the IP Address to generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how our Services are used.
Information Sent by Your Mobile Device
We collect certain information that your mobile device sends when you use our Services, like a device identifier, user settings and the operating system of your device, as well as information about your use of our Services.
In some cases we may collect and store information about where you are located, such as by converting your IP address into a rough geolocation or by accessing your mobile device’s GPS coordinates (requires user opt-in) if you enable location services on your device. We may use location information to improve and personalize our Services for you. If you do not want us to collect location information, you may disable that feature on your mobile device.
Information That We Share With Third Parties
We will not share any PII that we have collected from or regarding you except as described below:
Information Shared with Our Services Providers
We may engage third party service providers to work with us to administer and provide the Services. These third-party services providers have access to your PII only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf.
Information shared by you with Friends and in User Forums
Ate Services allow you to share your diet and exercise goals and information with friends that you select. In addition, if you accept an invitation from a Coach as a part of our Ate Coach service, you will enable the sharing of your Personal Diet Data information and potentially personally identifiable information with the Coach. Please bear in mind that Piqniq (Ate) cannot control what your friends or Coaches do with the information you share with them, so you should only share with friends and Coaches you trust.
Information Shared with Other Systems, Such As HealthKit or Google Fit
- Piqniq (Ate) does not use or disclose to third parties user data or other information gained through the use of the HealthKit framework or Google Fit for advertising, other use-based data mining purposes or similar services, other than for purposes of improving health or for purposes of health or medical research.
- We do not disclose any of your information, to any third party without your express permission (other than in anonymized and aggregated format), and in the case of information gained through HealthKit or Google Fit such sharing will only be for purposes of enabling the third party to provide health and/or fitness services or for medical research.
- We do not sell any of your information, including information gained through HealthKit or Google Fit, to advertising platforms, data brokers or information resellers.
- We do not use any of the information obtained through HealthKit or Google Fit for any purpose other than providing health and/or fitness services in connection with the Services.
Information Shared with Third Parties
We may share aggregated information and non-identifying information with third parties for industry research and analysis, demographic profiling and other similar purposes.
Information Disclosed in Connection with Business Transactions
Information that we collect from our users, including PII, is considered to be a business asset. As a result, if we go out of business or enter bankruptcy or if we are acquired as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition or asset sale, some or all of our assets, including your PII, may be disclosed or transferred to a third-party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
Information Disclosed for Our Protection and the Protection of Others
