Please rest assured that we will process device data in a pseudonymous manner only. At no point will we use these data to identify you as an individual person.
Cookies are not the only way to process device data online. There are similar technologies, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels", “pixel tags” or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier enabling us to recognize when someone has visited our website. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, or to improve performance. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
For mobile applications, we also use software development kits (SDKs). SDKs are part of the built-in code of our mobile applications and function in a way similar to cookies: They collect certain information about your device or the interaction with our website, e.g., adding a certain meal to your order cart before submitting the order to the restaurant, or having clicked an advertisement for our website shown on a third-party website or app.
The types of cookies and similar technologies we use
We classify our cookies and similar technologies we into four categories:
They are required to navigate our website or service, and in order to use its core features. Without the use of such cookies, the proper functioning of our web offering cannot be guaranteed. You cannot opt out of these technologies.
They store your information to fulfil important, if not strictly necessary, functions. For example, they enable you to automatically log in next time you visit us, allow us to continuously improve the services we offer by collecting and analysing data on web traffic, or help you find exactly what you are looking for.
They are used to create personalised content, tailor-made for you, and to give you the best possible online experience. This means these technologies are used to provide you with contents and offerings that best suit your interests and preferences.
They are used to deliver personalised online advertisements for our services, targeted to your specific interests. These technologies are used to show you ads not only on our own platforms but also on third-party websites and apps hosted by publishers who are not part of our group of companies. They also serve to provide you with special offers and promotional campaigns relevant to your preferences.
Through cookies and other web-tracking technologies we also communicate limited device information such as your IP address, device ID, MAC address, operating system, device type, Apple Advertiser ID (IDFA) or Google Ad ID (GAID) to our partners. If you opt out of cookies and other web-tracking technologies, this will also stop any sharing of device information with external recipients.
Opting out of cookies and web-tracking
If you do not want us to collect and analyse information about your visit to, or use of, the website, you can opt out at any time. You can do so by configuring your browser to delete all cookies and reject them in the future. You can also use our cookie and web-tracking preference manager. There, you can select which category of cookies and web-tracking technologies you would rather like to have deactivated. However, please note that you cannot opt out of required cookies and similar technologies. Furthermore, deactivating web-tracking technologies does not mean you will no longer see any advertisements. Instead of personalised contents we will be showing you non-personalized app contents or advertisements, less relevant to your interests.
To implement your opt-out, a cookie will be set in your browser (to remember your preference) or, if you use the mobile app, an API call will be made to the SDK you would like to deactivate. This cookie is solely intended to map your objection. Please note that, for technical reasons, the opt-out cookie can only be used for the specific browser from which it is set. If you delete cookies or use a different browser or device, you will need to repeat this process.
