To Whom It May Concern,
My name is Alexis and I work for L214, a French Animal Welfare Organisation.
As part of our campaigns, we are working to improve the accessibility of
plant based food in supermarkets and restaurants.

3) Otherwise: adds the place, all its attributes, and the appropriate
When the change was made, or how frequently it is going to be repeated: to
Information on how to "opt out":
We will create a script that does the opposite of the steps above:
- remove all diet tags that were added
- remove places that were added
For this we will store the ids of the places that were updated / added.
