Legal basis for processing personal information

Social Meals will always make sure we have a legal basis to collect and use your personal information. The legal basis we rely on will change depending on the type of information and the context in which we collect it.

Our main reason for collecting and using your personal information is to perform our contract with you (i.e. to make sure you get your order when and where you want it), but we may also process it where it is in our legitimate business interests to do so. But only if our interests are not overridden by your data protection interests or your fundamental legal rights and freedoms.

In some cases, we may have a legal obligation to collect personal information from you (i.e. in the event of legal proceedings) or we might need to process it or share it with others to “protect your vital interests” or those of another person (i.e. in a case where another person’s life is in danger).

If we ask you to provide personal information to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contract with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal information is mandatory or not (and we’ll also explain the possible consequences of you not providing it).

Similarly, if we collect and use your personal information in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

If you have questions about or need further information concerning the legal basis on which we collect and use your personal information, please contact us via email


We place great importance on keeping your personal information safe and secure. As such, we put in place appropriate technical and organisational measures / industry standard technology to protect it from unauthorised access and unlawful processing, accidental loss, destruction and damage.

The security measures we use are designed to provide a level of protection security appropriate to the risk of processing your personal information. Where you have chosen a password which allows you to access certain parts of the Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We advise you not to share your password with anyone and to use a unique password for our Services. We will not be liable for any unauthorised transactions entered into using your name and password.

Baer in mind that, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent any unauthorised access to your personal data.

Data retention

Social Meals will retain your personal information where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (i.e. while you hold an account with us or to enable us to meet our legal, tax or accounting obligations).

If you object to us processing certain categories of your personal information (including in relation to receiving marketing communications from us), we will retain a record of your objection to the processing of your information so that we can continue to respect your wishes.

We will destroy or permanently anonymise your personal information at the point that we no longer need to process it for our ongoing legitimate business needs or for any legal reason. If this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store it and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

Your data protection rights

At Social Meals, we respect your privacy and data protection rights. Here is the summary of your rights in respect of the personal information of yours which Social Meals handle.

You can access your account at any time to review and update your personal information. You can also contact us to ask us to delete your personal information, restrict its processing or request that it be ported to a third party. This can be done by emailing

You also have the right to opt-out of receiving marketing communications that we send you at any time by emailing

If we collect and process your personal information on the basis of your consent, then you can withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing this consent will not affect the lawfulness of any processing we conducted prior to your withdrawal, nor will it affect processing of your personal information conducted in reliance on lawful processing grounds other than consent.

You have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about our collection and use of your personal information.

We respond to all requests we receive from individuals wishing to exercise their data protection rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
