1. Information We Collect & Store
We collect and store the following information for our customers:
1.1. Information You Provide
When you register an account, we collect and store (in encrypted storage) your username and password for your account. In addition, we store usernames and passwords for other accounts you add to Sauce.
1.2. Store Data
We store metadata about your restaurant, such as address, menu, photos, customer orders / amounts, etc. This enables us to identify key characteristics of your restaurant that can help us generate correct prices, and provide insights to identify whether your menu items are priced correctly.
1.3. Pricing Data
We store the prices we posted for your menu items for each day. This enables us to accurately assess the effectiveness of our algorithm, and to return pricing to an earlier state, if needed. We store pricing data to inform a better product for you.
We also use “cookies” to collect information and improve our Services. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Service.

The security of your information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
