Where to put my files? - Mac Programming

I have some files for my program that are manipulated by the program itself (the user never touches them or explicitly creates them) but I don't want them copied when the program gets copied so I don't want to put them in the app bundle (which seems bad anyway since it would cause problems when a non-owner runs the program)... Where should they go? I could put them in the prefs folder but they aren't really preferences......
