What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy is part of Meridian’s Terms of Service and covers the treatment of user information, including personally identifying information, obtained by Meridian, including information obtained when you access the Meridian’s Site, use the Meridian Service or any other software provided by Meridian.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Meridian does not own or control, or to individuals whom Meridian does not employ or manage, including any of the third parties to which Meridian may disclose user information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

What Information Do We Collect?

Meridian may obtain the following types of information from or concerning you or your mobile phone device, which may include information that can be used to identify you as specified below (“Personally Identifying Information”):

User Provided Information: We collect information you provide directly to us, such as when you create or modify your account, request services, contact customer support, or otherwise communicate with us. This information may include: name, email, phone number, postal address, date of birth, profile picture, payment method, billing information, items requested (for delivery services), delivery notes, mobile device information and other information you choose to provide. In order to provide the Meridian Service, Meridian will periodically access your address book or contact list on your mobile phone to locate the mobile phone numbers of other Meridian users (“in-network” numbers), or otherwise categorize other mobile phone numbers as “out-network” numbers, which are stored as one-way irreversibly hashed values.

Location Information: If you permit the Meridian app to access location services through the permission system used by your mobile operating system (“platform”), we may also collect the precise location of your device when the app is running in the foreground or background. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address.

Transaction Information: We collect transaction details related to your use of our Services, including the type of service requested, date and time the service was provided, amount charged, and other related transaction details.

A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser.

Once we receive your transmission of information, Meridian makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.
