Third-Party: Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to help us monitor the way that our visitors use our website. This not only give us usage statistics to help us see which parts of the website are used more (or less) than others, but it also shows us how many people are using the website at the same time. This is to help us gauge whether we need more (or less) servers to ensure that the demand on our website doesn't begin to impact the quality of service that we'd like to offer you.

Our database stores data about your search results - we track the following details:
Incidentally, the post code stored provides us with an approximate location for you - your post code is shared with others on the same road/street, so we don't have (or want!) enough data to pin-point your location.
In compliance with the GDPR rules, we only ask for the data from you that we actually need, and remove any that we've collected but no longer need.
We analyse the data collected only to better serve our visitors and customers - we do not sell or trade your data with anyone outside of The Menu Pile.
Everything that we've done in making The Menu Pile website has been to protect your data as best as we can. The data is encrypted (at rest) in the database, and accessed by the small team at The Menu Pile team, as well as queried by The Menu Pile website.
Whilst we are not data security experts ourselves, we are IT professionals and have done as much as possible to protect the data, according to our training and industry best practices.
This Privacy page will be updated as often as needed in the future, to help better explain the privacy and data collection processes at The Menu Pile.
