Sharing with others

We work with other companies within the Just Eat Takeaway.com group and other third party service providers, such as software providers and temporary agencies in order to carry out the processing described above. These group companies and service providers will process your personal data on behalf of us (as data processors) or as autonomous data controllers, and have access to your personal data for the purposes described in this privacy notice, and we require them to protect it in accordance with the standards set out in this privacy notice.

We will also share your data with other third party data controllers where appropriate or required by applicable law or regulation (including a court order) or where we believe disclosure is necessary to exercise, establish or defend legal rights or to protect the vital interests of any person. Such third party controllers may include law enforcement agencies.

We may also disclose your data to any company or prospective buyer of all or substantially all of our assets in connection with any sale or transfer of those assets.

Where your data gets sent

We may transfer your personal data outside of the European Economic Area. This may include transferring it to or accessing it from other jurisdictions that may not provide a level of protection equivalent to the EU data protection laws. Where we transfer personal data we will take account of any applicable statutory obligations relevant to personal data transfers and, where there isn't a European Commission (EC) adequacy decision in place, we will rely on appropriate safeguards, including EC approved standard contractual clauses. We have implemented similar appropriate safeguards with our third party service providers and further details can be provided upon request.

How long we keep your data

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal data so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.

Therefore, your personal data is by standard retained for up to twelve months after your application process has ended.
