Data Privacy HNGRY App

1 General

I. What does this Privacy Policy regulate?

 We attach great importance to the protection and security of your personal data. We therefore consider it important to inform you about which personal data we use for which purposes and which rights you have in relation to your personal data.

This data protection notice is subject to the DSGVO and any applicable data protection laws of Switzerland.

The HNGRY app

The HNGRY app is a shopping-list app in which you can create and edit your own shopping lists and share them with other HNGRY app users. The HNGRY app is intended to help you with your food planning. You can share the lists you created with friends and family at any time so you can better organize your shopping. The HNGRY app offers you a range of features such as the foods you buy the most frequently, the rhythm you consume them in and thus when you need to stock up on them again. Registration on the app is done via our HNGRY login or a Social Login from the providers Google, Facebook or Apple. We also offer you a guest login without any registration.

The xtraHNGRY storage

Products that you have marked as bought in your shopping list are automatically added to your storage. These are automatically assigned to the appropriate storage location you have at home and you will also receive information about how long they are likely to be fresh and in stock. If necessary, you can easily adjust the storage location and the expiration time *.

Our Smart Availability algorithm uses your usage history and smartly combines it with expert knowledge of food storage. Thanks to various sorting and filtering options *, you can find out more quickly what you still have at home, what is probably no longer in stock or edible and what you should buy again. With just one click * you can add products that need to be bought again to your shopping list.

Functions that are marked with * can only be used if you have subscribed to xtraHNGRY and are therefore subject to payment.

If the Commission has not made such a decision, we may only transfer your data to third parties located in a third country in so far as appropriate safeguards exist (e.g. standard data protection clauses adopted by the Commission or the supervisory authority in a specific procedure) and the enforcement of your rights is ensured, or the transfer is permissible in individual cases due to other permitted circumstances (Article 49 GDPR).

We remember your purchasing history to make your shopping suggestions as smart as possible. If you frequently buy a product, we use this history to calculate your average purchasing frequency and show you on the coloured bar whether you are likely to have some of the product left or whether you need to buy more. If you have not bought a product very frequently, we calculate the purchasing suggestions based on our empirical values.
