Hi all,

I am looking for a calorie tracker to use on my Android phone. I tried installing MyFitnessPal but as soon as I logged in I ditched it: it demanded I either consent to them owning all my data, sending it to the US (I am based in Europe) and allowing them to share it with third parties - OR - delete my account. I chose the latter.

For people asking why I'd be concerned: I don't want my personal data to be shared in an identifiable way. I'm ok if they send my age, weight history and gender as part of a package with ten thousand people in a non-identifiable way. But I really need to know that the company will NOT under any circumstances share such information associated with my name, email etc (so that the receiving party can look up an email find their weight history and what they have been eating for example).

Does FatSecret provide such a guarantee for its users? Where is the said legal document which clarifies this? I would like to know that if they will never share my information in an identifiable way. At least not without first asking for my consent.

Perhaps you should write to them. I don't think they read all our posts.
