Kitch Services Clients
Last updated: 16 April 2021
In our mission to give back to restaurants the control of their digital orders, Kitch is committed to transparent, robust, and secure privacy policies.
We seek to create and develop our relationship with restaurants based on trust. To that end, we are governed by three fundamental values.
The restaurant's information belongs to the restaurant. We seek to limit the information we collect from the restaurant to the absolute necessary for us to provide our services. We believe that restaurant information belongs to the restaurant and, once Kitch uses that information, we seek to do it in the ultimate benefit of the restaurant.
We protect the restaurant’s information from third parties. We never sell personal information to anyone. If a third-party requests access to the restaurant’s information we will refuse the request unless we have permission from the restaurant or are legally required to do so. If we are legally required to share personal information from the restaurant, we will inform the restaurant in advance, unless we are legally prohibited from doing it.
For your convenience, we have included plain language summaries in bold at the end of each section. However, these summaries are not legally binding and may be incomplete.

Kitch collects personal information from the Client, from the person responsible for the Client's Kitch account who will be the contracting party with Kitch ("Representative"), and from other users of the Client's account where applicable ("Users"), whenever they use our platform or provide information to Kitch.
In general, Kitch requires this information so that the Client, the Representative, and the Users can use our Platform.
Personal information provided by the Client. This information may relate to the Client (e.g., company name, trademark, address, tax ID, website address, social media profile addresses), to the Representative (e.g., name, phone number, email address), and to the Users (e.g., name, email address).
Bank information provided by the Client. This information includes details of the Client's bank account (e.g., IBAN, bank name, SWIFT code), or the Client's credit or debit card number.

This information does not explicitly reveal your identity, such as your name or contact information, but may include information about the device and browser you use, network connection, IP address and details about how you navigate our Website and Platform. We collect some of this information using "cookies" or other similar technologies.

The security of your personal information is important to us.
Kitch has implemented various measures to guarantee that information is adequately protected against unauthorized access, use, disclosure, and destruction. However, we cannot guarantee the complete security of information submitted over the Internet, even though we will use our best efforts to protect your personal information.
Some security measures adopted by Kitch include:
Kitch seeks to keep your personal information secure through a range of technical and organizational measures.
To give our Clients the best experience, we work with several companies that provide various services to help us support your business. Sometimes, we share your personal information with these companies for the proper operation and delivery of our services.
We also share your personal information with others in the following cases:
Additionally, Clients may use services not provided by Kitch to support their business (for example, applications and integrations we provide on Kitch Platform, or express deliveries or city logistics companies).
Kitch does not control how these services use your personal information. You should always guarantee that these services meet your expectations and privacy needs.
Kitch works with other companies to provide Kitch services to you and will share your personal information with those companies. If you use services not provided by Kitch, even if they are applications or integrations made available by Kitch, you should verify with those service providers that their privacy policies meet your expectations.
Kitch believes that you should be able to access and control your personal information regardless of where you reside. You may access and change your personal information directly on the Kitch Platform. If there is information that you cannot access and change directly on the Kitch Platform, you should contact Kitch by email at privacy [at] kitch.io.
Kitch needs the Client's personal information to provide Kitch services to you. For this reason, Kitch generally keeps your personal information when you use Kitch products or services. If you cancel your account with Kitch, stop paying Kitch Platform access subscriptions, or if we close your account, Kitch may retain the Client’s information for two years before the personal information purging process is initiated. Kitch does not initiate this purging of information immediately in case you wish to reactivate your account, or if there is an audit or legal claim related to your business.
If the Client contacts Kitch to delete personal information or withdraws its consent to the collection and processing of personal information, Kitch will process the elimination of this information no later than 30 days after the receipt of the request, unless Kitch is legally required to retain specific information for a longer period. In doing so, the Client understands and accepts that Kitch will have to terminate its account and its access to Kitch Services.
Finally, Kitch will not sell your personal information.
The Client has the right to access and control its personal information. The Client may revoke its consent to Kitch to control and process its information, and may review, change, and terminate its account with Kitch at any time.
To provide our services, enabling the Client to market goods and services to Buyers using its digital channels, Kitch collects and uses personal information from its Buyers.
Kitch will not use your Buyers information outside the scope of the services it provides to you and will not undertake any independent advertising or marketing efforts unless your Buyers are also directly Kitch Clients. Your Buyers information will not be sold.
The Client decides how its Buyers personal information is used and shall guarantee that its Buyers understand and accept the way the Client (and Kitch, on behalf of the Client) collects and processes their personal information.
If you have any questions, requests, or complaints about the way Kitch processes your personal information, you may contact us by email at privacy [at] kitch.io, or by postal mail sent to:
