7. Fraud prevention
We process some of the above personal data also to prevent fraud and other forms of misuse. The legal basis for this processing operation is that it is needed in pursuing a legitimate interest of Takeaway.com (fraud prevention) as defined in the GDPR.
We also use your personal data to be able to meet our reporting obligations towards advertisers and to be able to improve our website and our range of products and services. The legal basis for this processing operation is that it is needed in pursuing a legitimate interest of Takeaway.com (analysis & reporting) as defined in the GDPR.

Our website is neither intended for persons aged under 16, and nor do we intend to collect personal data of website visitors who are aged under 16. However, we are unable to verify visitors’ age. We therefore advise parents to monitor their children’s online activities, so as to prevent their personal data being collected without parental consent. If you feel that we have collected personal data of a minor without consent, please contact us on email@example.com. We will then proceed to erase these data.
Automated decision-making and profiling
In the performance of the contract with you and to improve our platform, Takeaway.com uses automated decision-making and profiling. We use your postcode and/or location details, for example, to select available restaurants in your local area. And Takeaway.com uses automated decision-making in complying with our legal obligations to prevent money laundering, terrorism financing, and other criminal offences.
When such automated decision-making and/or profiling leads to a negative decision about you, and you do not agree with it, you can contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then proceed to reassess the situation. We would aside from that also like to hear from you if you have suggestions on how to improve these processes.
How long we store personal data for
Takeaway.com will not store your personal data for longer than is strictly necessary for the purposes for which your personal data were collected. We will only store your personal data for longer if we are required by law to do so. Takeaway.com erases most of your personal data 2 years after you placed your order. We use this 2-year term for administrative purposes and to be able to deal with possible questions and complaints about your order, either from you or from restaurants. We store personal data that we use for reporting, analytical, and misuse prevention purposes for up to 20 years after you placed your order. We are unable to remove your personal data from backups. But when performing a restore from a backup, we will erase the personal data right away.
Sharing with restaurants
Takeaway.com shares your personal data (name, address details and [telephone number,] order) with the restaurant you selected, so that the restaurant can deliver your order. As you are a direct customer of the restaurant, the restaurant will have its own responsibility and obligations with respect to the processing of your personal data. If you have questions about how the restaurant handles your personal data, you should contact the restaurant directly.
Sharing with others (not being restaurants)
Takeaway.com will not sell your personal data to third parties, and we will only disclose them to third parties if necessary for the performance of our contract with you, for analytical and marketing purposes, or to comply with legal obligations.
Your personal data may be shared with the following parties:
- Software providers
- Implementation partners
- Customer satisfaction survey firms
Whenever we instruct third-party companies to process your personal data on our behalf, we will enter into a data processing agreement to guarantee the same level of protection and confidentiality of your personal data. Takeaway.com will then continue to have ultimate responsibility for such processing operations.
Our website may include links to third-party websites. When accessing such third-party websites, bear in mind that each of these websites has its own privacy statement. Although Takeaway.com takes great care in selecting websites to link to, we cannot assume responsibility for the way in which they handle your personal data.
Personal data access, rectification, and erasure
You have the right to access all personal data we collect about you, as well as to request that we rectify or erase your personal data.
