About this Policy
This Policy explains why and how UEAT and its customers (the “Establishment(s)”) Process your Personal Information in connection with food orders placed through the online ordering platforms and related products and services offered by UEAT (the “Services”). The Policy also describes why and how we Process your Personal Information on behalf of the Establishments for example, when we administer their loyalty programs or provide them with email marketing services to send the Messages. The Establishment(s) from which you order food may also Process your Personal Information for other purposes in which case, we invite you to contact such Establishment(s) to address your rights or to learn more about how your Personal Information is Processed.
What is personal information?
For the purpose of this Policy, “Personal Information” means any information about an identifiable individual, which includes information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person. In general, Personal Information does not include business contact information, such as your name, title, or business contact information.
What personal information do we collect?
The Personal Information that we collect may include, but is not limited to:
- Contact information (e.g., your name, address, email and phone number, username and passwords of your account, if any);
- Date of birth;
- Social media accounts;
- Survey feedback;
- Technical information (e.g., information about your mobile and/or computer devices, GPS location or the unique identifier of your device, the transactions you make).
We may also collect details that you have provided in your food order that indicate any allergies or food intolerance that you may have.
How do we collect your personal information?
Directly from you.
Generally, we will collect the Personal Information that we need directly from you, for example when you use the Service, visit and/or browse the UEAT Platforms, visit an Establishment’s website or when you communicate with us. We may also gather information that is generated by your mobile and/or computer devices (e.g., mobile advertising identifiers, location information and IP address). For more information, please refer to the Section “How does UEAT provide online advertising?”.
With a legal basis, such as your consent.
The legal basis to Process your Personal Information is typically because you have consented to it, unless applicable laws permit another applicable legal basis (e.g., for the purpose of complying with our legal obligations, where necessary for establishing, exercising, or defending a legal claim, a prospective legal claim, legal proceedings or prospective legal proceedings.).
Refusal of collection and withdrawal of your consent.
You have the right, if you so choose, to refuse the Processing of your Personal Information. You may also, at any time, and subject to reasonable notice and applicable legal or contractual restrictions, withdraw your consent (if any) to the Processing of your Personal Information in our possession by contacting us. You should be aware, however, that if you choose not to provide your Personal Information, this may prevent you, for example, from using the Service, as this information is essential to the provision of such Service. You may contact UEAT as set forth in the Section “How to contact us?” to address any issue thereof.
Why do we collect your personal information?
For specific and limited Purposes
UEAT generally collects your Personal Information to:
- Provide you with the Service, namely, to: enable you to order products from an Establishment, confirm the successful order, track your location for the purpose of identifying the closest Establishment to your current position, and have the products delivered if delivery applies;
- Respond to your queries or questions;
- Authenticate the users of an account;
- Provide you with advertising while using the Service, the UEAT Platforms, the Messages, or third-party services including social media;
- Recommend you services and products based on your preferences;
- Administer the surveys that you have agreed to complete;
- Administer the Establishment’s loyalty programs; and
- Send the Messages and manage email campaigns on behalf the Establishments
(collectively, the “Purposes”).
To send you the Messages
If you have consented to receive such information, UEAT may send you newsletters, electronic messages, news on, among others, new features or new products, updates, contests, special offers and/or other written communications (the “Messages”) about UEAT’s services and/or products and/or products or services of third parties, including the Establishments. Messages may be sent by UEAT for its own purposes or on behalf of the Establishments. In the latter case, we invite you to contact the Establishments to address your rights or to learn more about how your Personal Information is Processed by them. UEAT may also use Direct Push and your geographical information on our mobile application to send you alerts about local promotions.
You may opt-out of receiving the Messages as set forth in the Section “How to contact us?” or by following the instructions contained in the Messages. You may also disable the Direct Push notice through your device settings. A delay of ten (10) days may be required to treat your request. However, UEAT may continue to send you Messages to inform you about available upgrades or critical technical service issues relating to the Service, or to provide you with important information on your account (if any).
For secondary purposes
UEAT may also aggregate and anonymize Personal Information that you have provided to create statistical data which UEAT may use to improve the Service, examine trends and interests, train machine learning algorithms, or share with its third-party partners including the Establishments, advertising partners and research centres. Such statistical data does not include any Personal Information.
Who we share your personal information with
UEAT does not rent or sell any of your Personal Information to third parties and will not share it with third parties without your consent unless it is necessary to do so by law or for the Purposes as set forth below.
With our employees
In the course of their work, our employees may need to access your Personal Information, for example, when you contact us or request support. Their access is limited to what is necessary to perform their duties.
With strategic partners
UEAT may share your Personal Information with its partners such as the Establishments to the extent that such disclosure is required for the Purposes. UEAT may use third parties to facilitate its business, such as payment processors, delivery companies, hosting services providers, loyalty program providers, integrated POS systems, contractors for sending out e-mail updates about UEAT and the Service or for providing customer support services. In connection with these business operations, UEAT’s service providers may have access to your Personal Information for use for a limited time in connection with these business activities. Where UEAT utilizes third parties for the Processing of any Personal Information, UEAT implements reasonable contractual and technical protections in order for such third parties to keep all Personal Information they Process strictly confidential. Please note that these third parties may be located elsewhere than your location in which case, appropriate measures are taken by UEAT as set forth below in the Section “Where is your Personal Information stored and transferred?”.
When required by applicable laws
UEAT may also share your Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (i) conform with the law; (ii) comply with the order of a competent judicial authority in any jurisdiction; (iii) comply with legal process served on UEAT; (iv) protect and defend the rights or property of UEAT; (v) enforce or verify your compliance with any part of the agreements that you have entered into with UEAT, if any; (vi) prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Service; or (vii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Service, the UEAT Platforms or the public at large.
During business transfer
We may share your Personal Information without your permission when our operations require it (in the event of a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, or sale of assets, for example). As part of this kind of event, we may also share some or all of your Personal Information to the relevant third-party (or its advisors) as part of a due diligence process.
For other purposes with your consent
Where you have expressly consented, your Personal Information may be shared with other third parties. For example, there may be specific instances where additional terms apply and, through these, we make clear that specific third parties Process your Personal Information.
Third-party services and platforms
We may include on the UEAT Platforms links to third party sites or services that we do not control, for example, if you use an integrated feature from Google or social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.). Such third-party may share some information about you with us. Your activities on the Service or the UEAT Platforms may be displayed on social media platforms. If you click on one of these links, you will be directed to sites that we do not control. Please read the privacy policies of these third-party websites, applications or platforms that may collect Personal Information in order to understand their privacy policies and data collection practices. This Policy applies solely to Personal Information Processed by UEAT or on its behalf.
How long will we keep your personal information?
UEAT will retain your Personal Information only for as long as necessary to fulfill the Purposes for which it was collected, or as required for UEAT’s legitimate interests, or to comply with applicable legal, tax or regulatory requirements. After such time, any Personal Information held by UEAT will be destroyed, deleted, or made anonymous.
