6. RECIPIENTS

We only share your personal data within the organization of Wolt if and as far as reasonably necessary for the purposes of this Privacy Statement.

We do not share your personal data with third parties outside of Wolt’s organization unless one of the following circumstances applies:

For the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement and to authorized service providers

To the extent that third parties (such as the restaurants which prepare your order, the Customer Organization which may pay your order, or other third parties) need access to personal data in order for us and such third parties to perform the Wolt Services, we provide such third parties with your data. Furthermore, we may provide your personal data to our affiliates or to authorized service providers and partners who perform services for us or in collaboration with us (including data storage, accounting, sales and marketing) to process the data and to payment service providers to process your payments to us.

When data is processed by third parties on behalf of Wolt, Wolt has taken the appropriate contractual and organizational measures to ensure that your data are processed exclusively for the purposes specified in this Privacy Statement and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations and subject to our instructions and appropriate obligations of confidentiality and security measures.

Please bear in mind that if you provide personal data directly to a third party, such as through a link in the Wolt Services, the processing is typically based on their policies and standards.

Furthermore, we may provide your personal data to the Courier which are necessary for the delivery of the Order, in case delivery applies. Since the Courier performs the delivery service directly to you as User, the Courier is a data controller of your personal data which are necessary for the delivery of the Order. Wolt shall only provide personal data to Courier to the extent it is necessary for the delivery of the Order. Courier shall use the personal data to a limited extent which is necessary for the delivery of the Order and is in direct connection therewith (such as compliance with legal obligations, such as taxation rules), and Courier is required to comply with data privacy laws and cannot use personal data for other purposes. With respect to data processed by the Courier as data controller, the Courier is liable for compliance with data privacy (and other applicable) laws and is likewise liable for infringement thereof. 

In case of delivery services, Wolt is also a data controller for personal data which is necessary for the issuance of the invoice on the delivery fee in Courier’s name.

With Partners for performance of Wolt Services

To the extent that third parties, such as the Partners which prepare and/or deliver your order, our courier partners who deliver your order and Customer Organization which may pay your order, need access to personal data in order for us to perform the Wolt Services, we provide such third parties with your data.

We provide the Partner and where applicable, its parent company or franchisor, with personal data including your name and data relating to your purchase, including venue details, order number, time of order and delivery, delivery method, ordered products, comments and feedback that you've given about the order. Such data is shared for enabling the Partner to prepare the order including, where applicable, picking up the products in the store, ensuring the quality of the Partner's service and product selection available at Wolt as well as complying with Partner's legal obligations. Where Partner processes such details for purposes of fulfilling its own rights and obligations, such as its legal obligations towards you, Partner is independent controller of the Personal Data and responsible for the lawfulness of its processing operations.

You may be able to add the details of your Partner-specific bonus card or loyalty programme on the Wolt Service for purposes of linking any orders placed at the Partner to the relevant loyalty programme, in accordance with the terms defined by Partner. Wolt will share such details to the Partner and Partner is independent controller of such details and thereby responsible for ensuring lawfulness of the processing.

We may also share your phone number with the partner preparing your order if it's necessary e.g. for asking you whether you accept a replacement product in the order or inform you that an item is missing from your order or for any special request clarifications.

For legal reasons and legal processes

We may share your personal data with third parties outside Wolt if we have a good-faith belief that access to and use of the personal data is reasonably necessary to: (i) meet any applicable law, regulation, and/or court order; (ii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, crime, security or technical issues; and/or (iii) protect the interests, properties or safety of Wolt, the Users or the public as far as in accordance with the law. When possible, we will inform you about such processing.

For other legitimate reasons

If Wolt is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we may transfer your personal data to the third party involved. However, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of all personal data. We will give notice to all the Users concerned when the personal data are transferred or become subject to a different privacy statement. 

With your explicit consent

We may share your personal data with third parties outside Wolt when we have your explicit consent to do so. You have the right to withdraw this consent at all times free of charge by contacting us.

Wolt does not store your personal data longer than is legally permitted and necessary for the purposes of providing the Wolt Services or the relevant parts thereof. The storage period depends on the nature of the information and on the purposes of processing. The maximum period may therefore vary per use. Wolt takes reasonable steps to keep the personal data accurate and to delete incorrect or unnecessary personal data.

Most personal data relating to a User’s user account with the Wolt Services will be deleted after a period of 90 days have lapsed after the User has deleted its user account with the Wolt Services. Thereafter, a part of the personal data relating to a User’s user account with the Wolt Services may be stored only as long as such processing is required by law or is reasonably necessary for our legal obligations or legitimate interests such as claims handling, bookkeeping, internal reporting and reconciliation purposes. All personal data relating to a User’s user account with the Wolt Services will be deleted within a period of 10 years after the User has deleted its user account with the Wolt Services, with the exception of personal data required in certain rare situations such as legal proceedings.

Right to withdraw consent

In case the processing is based on a consent granted by the User, the User may withdraw the consent at any time free of charge.

You may have the right to object to certain use of your personal data if such data are processed for other purposes than necessary for the performance of the Wolt Services or for compliance with a legal obligation. For example, you can request that we stop processing your personal data for direct marketing or profiling purposes based on legitimate interest. If you object to the further processing of your personal data, this may lead to fewer possibilities to use the Wolt Services.

Right to restriction of processing

You may request us to restrict processing of personal data for example when your data erasure, rectification or objection requests are pending and/or when we do not have legitimate grounds to process your data. When the processing has been restricted, your data will only be stored and not processed further. For example, if you contest the accuracy of your data, such data will be restricted from processing until it is ensured that the data is accurate. This may however lead to fewer possibilities to use the Wolt Services.

Right to data portability

When processing is carried out by automated means and based on a contract or consent, you have the right to receive the personal data you have provided to us yourself in a structured and commonly used format and to independently transmit those data to a third party.

We use administrative, organizational, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the personal data we collect and process. Measures include for example, where appropriate, encryption, pseudonymization, firewalls, secure facilities and access right systems. Our security controls are designed to maintain an appropriate level of data confidentiality, integrity, availability, resilience and ability to restore the data.
