Data Controller

Lunch.Co is the data controller of the company’s processing of personal data.

Legal basis and purposes of the processing

Two main categories of data are collected and processed by us. The first category covers data that we must have in order for you to be able to use the Services, i.e. that is necessary for the performance of our contract with you. The second category covers data that enable us to provide you with further features with the aim of providing you with an optimized experience of the Services. Some data in this category is processed based on our legitimate interest after a balancing test and some data is processed based on your consent.

The first category includes:

  • Registration information, including your first and last name, date of birth, profile picture, contact information (address, email address and telephone number) and country, that you provide when you sign up with Lunch.Co and the anonymized customer ID that is generated when you register.

  • Non-specific location gathered from your device or your mobile device (for example by using GPS). Some information in the Services are location-specific, so we need to know what country you’re in. This also enables us to make suggestions based on your general location.

  • The photo or photos you specifically choose when you create a meal posting with Lunch.Co.

  • Technical and sensor information, including the type of browser and device you use, data from the touch screen and information from your device’s accelerometer and gyroscope sensors. This enables us to provide an optimized experience of our Services. Technical data can also include URL-information, cookie-data, your IP-address, the kind of device you use to access or to connect to the Services, the unique device-ID, device attribute, type of network connection (for example WiFi, 3G, LTE) and provider, network and device performance, browser type, information on language, information enabling digital rights management, operating system and Lunch.Co application version. Motion-generated or orientation-generated mobile sensor data (e.g. accelerator or gyroscope).

  • Payment data. When you create a meal posting the Lunch.Co application enables your credit or debit card information (such as card type, expiration date and certain digits of your card number) and other financial data to be collected and retained by the payment processor Stripe or such other payment processor that we work with. When your personal data is collected and retained by a company that is considered as an independent controller of such processing, that company’s privacy policy applies to its processing. We are normally provided with some limited information from the payment processor, such as the unique token enabling you to make additional purchases by using the data already stored by the payment processor. If you have completed a meal transaction and are eligible to receive payment from another user, the payment processor transferring the amount to your bank account may need to collect and to process further information such as your bank and account number, date of birth or national identity, and your telephone number.

The purposes of the processing are to provide and administrate the Services, to communicate with you for purposes related to the Services and to administrate your payment and to discover abuse or fraud.

The second category includes:

  • Your specific location: We will never gather or use your specific device location (for example by using GPS) without first getting your explicit consent. This information enables us to provide you with features, information, ads and other content depending on your current location and your location in relation to other Lunch.Co users. If you choose to share your specific location but later change your mind, you will always have the possibility to withdraw your consent by changing your settings in your device’s operating system.

  • Special promotions and offers: Based on our legitimate interest to share your perception of our Services, to market our Services, and to add value to you as users Lunch.Co may offer you the opportunity to participate in promotions such as sweepstakes, contests, offers and surveys through the Services or through email/text messages (SMS). You will always have the possibility not to participate in such promotions by changing the settings in your device for notices or by contacting us at the address stated under the heading ”Company information” below.

We may also collect limited information related to you such as your transaction history. Our processing in these cases is based on our legitimate interest to develop and improve our Services and to understand how you use our Services.

If you have consented to our processing you can withdraw your consent at any time by changing your settings in the operating system of your device or by changing your account settings at your Lunch.Co account, if applicable.
