What Is Personal Information and Why Do We Collect It?
Personal Information is information or an opinion that identifies an individual. We are required to collect Personal Information only by lawful and fair means.

- your name(s), title, postal address(es)*, email address(es), and telephone numbers;
* Note: As of October 2022, hungree.me does not collect and hold postal addresses. Postal address information may be collected temporarily to validate credit card transactions; it is discarded immediately afterwards.
We may request additional information we require to provide our services to you or to allow the organisation for which you work to provide hungree.me with services (e.g. payment information to process orders). Further information may be collected with your consent in specific instances as disclosed to you.
When we collect Personal Information, we will, where appropriate and where possible, explain to you why we are collecting the information and how we plan to use it.
Where reasonable and practicable to do so we will collect your Personal Information only and directly from you. However, in some circumstances we may be provided with information by third parties – particularly by credit card providers, or intermediaries such as Google Pay and Apply Pay. In such a case we will take reasonable steps to ensure that you are made aware of the information provided to us by the third party.
Any Personal Information held by hungree.me will not be used or disclosed by us except as authorised by you or as is reasonably necessary for the purposes outlined to you or when required or when required or authorised by law. An example of this is using your information to validate credit card transactions with third parties.
You have the right to remain anonymous, to use a pseudonym or refrain from providing Personal Information to hungree.me where this is viable for the handling of order(s). Should you choose not to provide Personal Information to hungree.me, to remain anonymous, or to use a pseudonym, we may not be able to provide you with the services you require, or we may not be able to provide you with the required services to a level that we regard as best practice.
