4. PURPOSES AND LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

 Purposes

 There are several purposes of the processing of your personal data by Wolt. One or more of the following purposes may apply simultaneously:

 

To provide the Wolt Services and carry out our contractual obligations (legal ground: performance of a contract and legitimate interest under law in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) and Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR)

 

Wolt processes your personal data to be able to offer the Wolt Services to you under the contract between you and Wolt or as otherwise may be necessary to perform the contract between you and Wolt. Wolt may also process personal data when it is necessary for an interest which is lawful and important for Wolt.

 

We use the data for example to process your requests, to communicate with you, to handle your payments or any refunds (where applicable) and to provide our partners (the restaurants and our courier partners) with the information necessary for the preparation or delivery of your order. If you contact our customer service, we will use the information provided by you to answer your questions or solve your complaint. 

 

We may collect, use and share data on either your exact or approximate location, including real-time geographic location of your computer or mobile phone in order for us to show you the destination of an order and accurate information on the status of your order, as well as to display restaurants close to you. Information on your location that enables to identify you personally is not collected or used without your consent. The permission to use your location is requested in the Wolt Services. The tracking feature can be disabled through the Wolt App (Profile -> Settings -> Additional Settings -> Location and push-settings -> Location) and on your computer through the privacy and security settings in your browser.

 

For our legal obligations (legal ground: compliance with a legal obligation under Art. 6(1)(c) of the GDPR)

 

Wolt processes data to enable us to administer and fulfil our obligations under law. This includes data processed for complying with our bookkeeping obligations and providing information to relevant authorities such as tax authorities.

 

For claims handling and legal processes (legal ground: legitimate interest under Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR)

 

Wolt may process personal data in relation to claims handling, debt collection and legal processes. We may also process data for the prevention of fraud, misuse of our services and for data, system and network security.

 

For customer communication and marketing (legal ground: legitimate interest under Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR)

 

Wolt processes your personal data to contact you regarding the Wolt Services and to inform you of changes relating to them. Your personal data are also used for the purposes of marketing the Wolt Services to you. Legitimate interest is the basis for processing e.g. when we personalize our offerings and provide you with services which are more relevant to you and when we analyze information on your interests and feedback to develop our services.

 

When you obtain Wolt credits or tokens in accordance with the Wolt User Terms of Service and Purchase, Wolt processes your personal data to match your referral code with your user profile in order to assign the credits or tokens to the correct User account. Wolt will not process the personal data of a new User until the new User registers to the Wolt Service. Such processing is described in Section 3 above.

In order to ensure that our services are in line with your needs, personal data can be used for things like customer satisfaction surveys. When possible, we will do this using only aggregated, non-personally identifiable data.

 

Legal grounds for processing

 

Wolt processes your personal data to perform our contractual obligations towards you and to comply with legal obligations. Furthermore, we process your personal data to pursue our legitimate interest to run, maintain and develop our business and to create and maintain customer relationships.

In some parts of the Wolt Services, you may be requested to grant your consent for the processing of personal data. In this event, your personal data is not processed before you give consent and you may withdraw your consent at any time.

Wolt stores your personal data primarily within the European Economic Area. However, we have service providers and operations in several geographical locations. As such, we and our service providers may transfer your personal data to, or access it in, jurisdictions outside the European Economic Area or the User’s domicile. 

 

We will take steps to ensure that the Users’ personal data receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which they are processed.

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.
