Advertising and marketing Online Marketing 

Our hiring process is based to a large extent on finding potential riders. In order to reach the right candidates, we run marketing campaigns. Therefore, we would like to present to you our processes as transparently as possible. The following online marketing processing activities we pursue include targeting and retargeting:

Targeting 
In principle, targeting means the switching and fading in of advertising banners on websites that are tailored to specific target groups. The aim is to display the most attractive banners as individually as possible for the user and potential riders. Firstly, we define a target group and secondly, we commission our service providers to show our advertising to the defined target group. We do not process any personal data, as these are initially made anonymous. We segment different target groups and place different ads on different portals for optimized targeting. 

Retargeting
As soon as you have visited our website for obtaining further information on our rider program, we store this information in cookies. If you continue to surf other websites, our advertising partners will remind you on our behalf that you have not yet submitted an application. We don't want you to miss out on our amazing rider program. 
You can disable retargeting by installing appropriate add-ons for your browser. Furthermore, you can and should also regularly delete the cookies stored in the browser you are using.

Legal basis:
Legitimate interest is the purpose described above.



How long do we store personal data?

We generally delete your data after the purpose has been fulfilled. The exact deletion rules are defined in our regional deletion concepts. Different deletion rules apply depending on the purpose of the processing. Within our deletion concepts we have defined various data classes and assigned rule deletion periods to them. When the retention period is met, the stored data will be deleted accordingly.

Under certain circumstances, any requests for deletion may be opposed by legal retention periods, which prevent us from deleting the stored data for a fixed minimum period of time. In order to comply with these legal requirements, we block the relevant data after the purpose has been fulfilled and thereby guarantee data completeness and data integrity.



With which data processors and why do we share personal data?

We never give your data to unauthorized third parties. However, as part of our work we obtain the services of selected service providers and give them limited and strictly monitored access to some of our data. However, before we forward personal data to these data processors for processing on our behalf, each individual company undergoes an audit. All data recipients must meet the legal data protection requirements and prove their data protection level with appropriate proofs. 

In the following we would like to inform you in a transparent and understandable way about all our data recipients with the respective reasons:

Data recipientReason for sharing
External service providerThey support our business activities by providing us with IT solutions and infrastructure or by ensuring the security of our business operations, for example by identifying and rectifying faults. Furthermore, personal data may also be disclosed to external tax consultants, lawyers or auditors if they provide services for which they have been commissioned.
Members of the Delivery Hero SE GroupWithin a group of companies it is sometimes necessary to use resources effectively. In this context, we support each other within our group in optimizing our processes. In addition, we provide joint content and services. This includes, for example, the technical support of systems or database hosting for our rider applications. In legal terms, taking decisions on the purposes and means of processing is called “joint controllership” of data. Your employer is fully responsible for fulfilling the data protection requirements together with Delivery Hero SE. Within the framework of joint regulations, both the employer and Delivery Hero SE have agreed that both will guarantee your rights equally. You can therefore address any requests both to us who have engaged you as a rider, and to Delivery Hero SE, Oranienburger Straße 70, 10117 Berlin. You can reach the data protection officer of Delivery Hero SE at dpo@deliveryhero.com.
Prosecuting authorities and legal proceedingsUnfortunately, it can happen that a few of our riders or service providers do not behave fairly and want to harm us. In these cases we are not only obliged to hand over personal data due to legal obligations, it is of course also in our interest to prevent damage and to enforce our claims and to reject unjustified claims. 



To which third countries do we transfer personal data?

We process your data mainly within the Asia-Pacific (APAC). However, some of our service providers mentioned above are based outside of APAC.

All our data receives have to measure up to certain requirements for the transfer of personal data to third countries. Before we transfer your data to a service provider in third countries, every service provider is first assessed with regard to its data protection level. Only if they can demonstrate an adequate level of data protection will they be shortlisted for service providers.

Regardless of whether our service providers are located within the APAC or in third countries, each service provider must sign a contract with us, which shall contain the provisions as required by the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (Cap. 486).
