We may also use aggregate personal information for regulatory compliance, industry and market analysis, research, demographic profiling, marketing and advertising, and other business purposes as long as it does not uniquely identify you.

Location Information.  Each time you access or use the Bite Squad or Waitr Driver App, it may collect the precise location of your device when the Driver App is running (foreground or background. Your location information is necessary for Delivery Logistics to coordinate fulfillment of delivery orders placed with our network of Delivery Partners. Delivery Partners that are not within a reasonable distance from restaurants may be considered unavailable to receive orders. We also use the location information to track the progress and completion of deliveries. We may also approximate your location from your IP address when you access or use the Driver App. The Driver App also provides location and movement data to third parties for insurance purposes. We may retain this information for as long as you are our driver partner.  It does not track your location or movement when you are logged out of the Driver App.


We typically collect the foregoing information through a variety of tracking technologies, including cookies, Flash objects, web beacons, embedded scripts, mobile SDKs, location-identifying technologies, and similar technology (collectively, “tracking technologies”), and we may use third party partners or services to assist with this effort. Information we collect automatically about you or your device may be combined with other personal information we collect directly.  


Data from other sources
Affiliates and third-party services. From time to time, we may receive information about you from other Delivery Logistics entities and affiliates, background check providers, co-marketing and other lead generation partners, service providers, and from other third parties.  For example, we receive publicly available information about a Delivery Partner’s driving record or criminal history from our background check providers, and we use this information to evaluate an individual’s eligibility to be a Delivery Partner.


Referrals. If someone refers you to Delivery Logistics, we will collect information about you from that referral including your name and contact information.

We may receive additional information about you from our restaurants and diners (e.g. support communications and ratings and/or reviews).  Other users or public or third-party sources such as law enforcement and insurers may provide us information about you, for example as part of an investigation into an incident or to provide support.
