This includes social media platforms like Facebook, offshore customer support agents, website and application support and hosting providers, marketing service providers, eCRM partners like Salesforce who manage our marketing emails and push notifications, companies like Twilio who send you text messages when your Order is on its way, delivery companies who deliver your Order to you, market research companies and payment processing providers which process payment card transactions - any of these third parties might be inside or outside your country of residence;

SpeedyBites 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.

We may transfer your personal information to countries outside the one in which you are resident to other countries where our service providers have operations. The data protection laws of these countries may differ from the laws of your country but SpeedyBites takes care to implement appropriate safeguards to protect your personal information in those countries in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Whenever we retain your information we will do so in compliance with applicable laws.
