Terms and Conditions

The EatBy App is exclusively licensed for distribution and operational maintenance to EatBy.


Food safety is very important. The Eat By App is designed to help you manage the food in your kitchen and save you money by reducing the amount of food you waste. It should also help you become more aware of the 'Use By' dates on food products. We don't like terms and conditions any more than you do but unfortunately they are necessary in this complicated world! Please read them. This agreement is solely between you, the user and us, the developers of this app. By using the Eat By App ("Application") or any associated intellectual property ("Services") you are affirming that you have read this page, understand it and agree to these terms and conditions. Users who are in breach of our conditions will be denied future access to the EatBy App without refunds for any of the in app purchases.


Scope of License.


We hereby grant you (the User) a limited, revocable, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicenseable, license solely to use the Application, to install and use the Eat By App and is limited to use of the Eat By App on either any iOS products or Android Products that the end-user owns or controls and as permitted by the Usage Rules set forth in the App Store or Google Play Terms of Service, except that such Licensed Application may be accessed, acquired, and used by other accounts associated with the purchaser via Apple's Family Sharing. A separate license  is required for each operating system.


Eat By dates


It is up to you to check that the food you eat is safe and within date. The Eat By App's notification and organiser function is only to serve as a reminder to you to use food before it is past its Best Before or Use By dates. You understand that is your responsibility to always check the dates on the packaging before you use it! Never rely on the EatBy App to determine the freshness of your food or its suitability to eat. You accept that We, the developers of the Eat By App, are not to be held responsible in any way for the food you eat, its freshness or its suitability. You understand and agree that We shall not have any responsibility or be liable for any failure by the Application to notify or remind you of the use by dates.

We may update these terms and conditions from time to time. When we do, we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. Any such revision will be binding and effective immediately upon posting of the revised Agreement on our web site.

You are advised to read these terms frequently as it is your sole responsibility to keep yourself informed of the changes taking place. Your continued use of the Services shall indicate your acceptance of the new terms.




The item scanner function depends on user input from around the world. If an item is not on our database and you add it then the next user who scans the same item will see the details you have added. You agree not to add irrelevant data, images or messages. Your login details are associated with items you add to the database but your details will NOT be visible to other users. Though we do our best to check, we do not guarantee the quality of user submitted information. If you are unhappy about the product's information you may amend it on your device or contact us.



Wireless Data Services.


The Eat By App requires data transfer between the device it is used on and our servers.

You understand that this is solely your responsibility and that the developers of the EatBy App can not be held liable for data usage on your device.

These images are uploaded onto our servers and are visible to other users of the EatBy App. As a user of the EatBy App you agree that images you upload are appropriate, your own, and that we can use and distribute your images freely within the EatBy App, on our website(s) and on any other EatBy App publicity material.

The EatBy App database is a public source database with entries made by the users of the app, manufactures and food stores. Food items, product names, descriptions and the respective images have not necessarily been created by EatBy App. EatBy App assumes "fair use” of this information, including food and item images that help serve as a visual aid to users. The majority of users, manufacturers and distributors understand the mutual benefits of allowing product names, descriptions, images (including photographs of packaging), to be uploaded and used within the EatBy App. It is our policy that no item will ever be portrayed in a negative light and that our service is to benefit everyone as fairly as possible. While many manufactures may exploit the EatBy App platform as a source of advertising, we understand that some may prefer not to have images of their packaging used on the EatBy App database. It is our policy that we abide by any request of manufactures to remove unapproved product descriptions and images but we also offer all manufactures, distributors and retailers the facility to freely add, amend or remove their own product information and images.

If you need to contact us to manage your product information then please use the Contact Us form and a representative will be in touch as soon as possible.
