Data retention and deletion
Rewalty retains user data for as long as necessary for the purposes described above. Users may request deletion of their accounts at any time. Rewalty may retain user data after a deletion request due to legal or regulatory requirements or for the reasons stated in this policy.

Rewalty retains user data for as long as necessary for the purposes described above. This means that we retain different categories of data for different periods of time depending on the category of user to whom the data relates, the type of data and the purposes for which we collected the data.

Grounds for processing
We only collect and use personal data where we have lawful grounds to do so. These include processing user personal data to provide requested services and features, for purposes of Rewalty’s legitimate interests or those of other parties, to fulfil our legal obligations or based on consent.

We collect and use personal data only where we have one or more lawful grounds for doing so. Such grounds may vary depending on where our users are located, but generally include processing personal data:

To provide requested services and features
In order to provide our services, we must collect and use certain personal data. This includes:
  • User profile data, which we use to establish and maintain user accounts; verify user identity; communicate with users about their trips, orders and accounts; and enable users to make payments or receive earnings

  • Background trip information, which is used to verify an applicant’s eligibility to be a delivery person

  • Driver and delivery person location data, which we use to track trips for food orders and assist with navigation

  • Usage data, which is necessary to maintain, optimise and enhance Rewalty’s services, including to determine incentives, connect riders and drivers, and calculate costs of trips and driver earnings

  • Transaction information

  • Information relating to customer support

For the purposes of the legitimate interests of Rewalty or other parties
This includes using personal data to maintain and enhance our users’ safety and security. For example, we use personal data to prevent use of our services by users who have engaged in inappropriate or dangerous behaviour, such as by retaining data of banned users to prevent their use of Rewalty’s apps. We also use usage data to prevent matching of riders and drivers for whom there is higher risk of conflict (for instance, because they have been the subject of prior complaints from other users). This also includes purposes such as combating fraud; improving our services, direct marketing, research and development; and enforcing Rewalty’s Terms of Service.   In addition, it includes using personal data to the extent necessary for the interests of other people or the general public, such as in connection with legal or insurance claims, and to protect the rights and safety of others.

To fulfil Rewalty’s legal obligations
For example, Rewalty is subject to laws and regulations in many cities and countries that require it to collect and retain data about our users’ trips and deliveries, and to provide copies of such data to the government or other authorities. We collect and use personal data to comply with such laws.

With consent
Rewalty may collect and use personal data based on the user’s consent. For example, we may collect personal data through voluntary surveys. Responses to such surveys are collected on the basis of consent and will be deleted once no longer necessary for the purposes collected.
  A user who has provided consent to a collection or use of their personal data can revoke it at any time. However, the user will not be able to use any service or feature that requires collection or use of that personal data.

4.Choice and transparency

Rewalty enables users to access and control the data that Rewalty collects, including through:
  • In-app settings

  • Device permissions

  • In-app ratings pages

  • Marketing opt-outs

Rewalty also enables users to request access to or copies of their data, changes or updates to their accounts, deletion of their accounts or that Rewalty restrict its processing of user personal data.

Privacy settings
Settings menus in the Rewalty app for riders give them the ability to set or update their location-sharing preferences and their preferences for receiving mobile notifications from Rewalty. Information about these settings, how to set or change these settings and the effect of turning off these settings is described below.
  • Location data

Rewalty uses riders’ device location services to make it easier to get a ride whenever they need one. Location data helps improve our services, including pickups, navigation and customer support.
Riders may enable or disallow Rewalty to collect location data from their mobile devices through the Settings > Privacy menus in the Rewalty app. Riders and delivery recipients can enable or disallow such collections through the settings on their mobile device.
  • Share Live Location (riders)

Riders who have enabled Rewalty to collect location data from their mobile device may also enable Rewalty to share their location with their driver from the time the ride is requested to the start of the trip. This can help improve pickups for both drivers and riders, particularly in crowded areas.
Riders may enable or disable this feature through the Settings > Privacy menus in the Rewalty app.
  • Emergency Data Sharing (riders)

Riders who have enabled Rewalty to collect location data from their mobile device may also enable the Emergency Data Sharing feature that shares data with emergency police, fire and ambulance services. Such data includes approximate location at the time the emergency call was placed; the car’s make, model, colour and licence plate information; the rider’s name and phone number; pickup and drop-off locations; and the driver’s name.

  Riders may enable or disable this feature through the Settings > Privacy menus or the Safety Centre in the Rewalty app.
  • Notifications: account and trip updates

Rewalty provides users with trip status notifications and updates related to activity on their account. These notifications are a necessary part of using the Rewalty app and cannot be disabled. However, users may choose the method by which they receive these notifications through the Settings > Privacy menus in the Rewalty app.
  • Notifications: discounts and news

Users may enable Rewalty to send push notifications about discounts and news from Rewalty. Push notifications may be enabled or disabled through the Settings > Privacy menus in the Rewalty app.
  • Communications from restaurant partners

Delivery recipients who have opted in to communications from restaurant partners may stop sharing their data with each restaurant partner in their Rewalty account settings.

Device permissions Most mobile device platforms (iOS, Android, etc.) have defined certain types of device data that apps cannot access without the device owner’s permission, and these platforms have different methods for how that permission can be obtained. iOS devices notify users the first time the Rewalty app requests permission to access certain types of data and gives users the option to grant or refuse permission. Android devices notify users of the permissions that the Rewalty app seeks before their first use of the app, and use of the app constitutes a grant of such permission.

Ratings look-up After every trip, drivers and riders are able to rate each other on a scale from 1 to 5. An average of those ratings is associated with a user’s account and is displayed to other users for whom they provide or receive services. For example, rider ratings are available to drivers from whom they request transportation, and driver ratings are available to their riders.
This two-way system holds everyone accountable for their behaviour. Accountability helps create a respectful, safe environment for drivers and riders. Riders can see their average rating in the main menu of the Rewalty app. Drivers can see their average rating after tapping their profile photo in the Rewalty Driver app.
Delivery persons are also rated by delivery recipients and restaurant partners.
Marketing opt-outs
Users may opt out of receiving promotional emails from Rewalty here. Users may also opt out of receiving emails and other messages from Rewalty by following the unsubscribe instructions in those messages. We may still send users who have opted out non-promotional communications, such as receipts for rides or information about their account.
User data requests
Rewalty provides users with a variety of ways to learn about, control and submit questions and comments about Rewalty’s handling of their data. To make a request, please go here.
  • Accessing data: Users can ask for an explanation of the data we collect from them and how we use it.

  • Receiving data: Users can ask for a copy of data that Rewalty collects from them with their consent or as necessary to provide our services.

  • Changing or updating data: Users can edit the name, phone number, email address, payment method and photo associated with their account through the Settings menu in Rewalty’s apps or driver portal. They may also ask that Rewalty change or update their data, including if they believe such data is inaccurate or incomplete.

  • Deleting data: Users may request deletion of their account at any time through the Settings > Privacy menus in the Rewalty app, or through Rewalty’s website (riders and delivery recipients here; drivers and delivery persons here).

Objections, restrictions and complaints: Users may request that we stop using all or some of their personal data, or that we limit our use of their data. Rewalty may continue to process data after such objection or request to the extent required or permitted by law.

In addition, depending on their location, users may have the right to file a complaint relating to Rewalty’s handling of their personal data with the data protection authority in their country. For example, users in the European Union and South America may submit such requests to the data protection authorities in the country in which they live.

5. Updates to this notice

We may occasionally update this notice. Use of our services after an update constitutes consent to the updated notice to the extent permitted by law.
