Controllers of personal information

Any personal information provided to or to be gathered by Hack Your Carbs is controlled primarily by BreakthroughVentures OÜ, Narva mnt 5, 10117, Tallinn, Estonia

What data do we collect and store?

We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the Sites, personal information and non-personal information. 

Personal information is any information that you may supply to us, that can individually identify you and includes your name, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, credit card, billing and contact information. 

Non-personal information includes information that does not personally identify you but may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the Sites and the Internet.

How do we collect your data?

As a general matter, you can browse the Sites without submitting your personal information to us. However, there are a number of circumstances in which you may supply us with your personal information. The following lists the most common ways in which we may collect your personal information.  

  • Registration for an account on the Sites
  • Sign up to receive e-mail newsletters from us
  • Request for customer service or other assistance
  • Participation in surveys, panels, or market research
  • Participation in special events and promotions
  • Purchases on the Sites
  • Entry in contests or sweepstakes
  • Participation on social media accounts involving Hack Your Carbs, our books and our brands
  • Participation in communities, chat rooms, and other interactive services
  • Submission of user generated content on any part of the Sites that permit it
  • Submission of a job application
  • Any other place on the Sites where you knowingly volunteer personal information

Non-personal information

In addition, when you interact with the Sites, our servers may keep an activity log that does not identify you individually ("Non-Personal Information"). Generally, we collect and store the following categories of Non-Personal Information:  

  • Demographic data such as age, gender, and five digit zip code as part of collecting personal information
  • Device information about your computer, mobile device, or other device that you use to access the Sites. This information may include IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information.
  • Usage information about your use of the Sites. This information includes a reading history of the pages you view. We use this information to provide you a more customized experience on the Sites.
  • Additional "traffic data" such as time of access, date of access, software crash reports, session identification number, access times, and referring website addresses.
  • Your search terms and search results.
  • Other information regarding our users' use of the Sites.

Collection of your sourse IP address/location information

We collect and store your device's source IP address which may disclose the location of your device at the time you access the Sites. Advertisements and certain content may be directed to you as a result of this data.  

In addition, in some cases the Sites can deliver content based on your current location if you choose to enable that feature. If you enable that feature, your current location will be stored locally on your device which will be used by the Sites to serve you certain content tied to your location. If you elect to have your location-based searches saved to your history, we will store such information on our servers.

Collection of personal and non-personal information from other sources

We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources to, among other things, enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to better customize your experience on the Sites.

How do we store your data?
