Kitchen&Co Terms of Service

[Name] hereinafter referred to as “KITCHEN & CO” or “We” -Terms of Use


1. Scope

1.1 These Terms of Use form the contractual basis between Kitchen & Co (“Kitchen & Co “) and the customer (“you”) for the use of the service and the applications (as defined below) and any associated services provided by Kitchen & Co. In this context, orders can be placed via the Kitchen & Co application to be downloaded to your mobile phone (smartphone), via a web application on our website (e.g. kitchen& or via an app on one of our self-order kiosks (if these are available) (all three are referred to as the “Applications“). With such orders, you can also collect points that you can redeem for rewards as described in Section 7 below. Kitchen & Co can also send you coupons, which we generate in the back-end system and which we then send to you, for example, as push notifications. You can redeem these coupons on the Applications. Kitchen & Co provides the Applications and its services exclusively on the basis of these Terms of Use.

1.2 The Applications are the means through which you can place orders for food, drinks and other services available from Kitchen & Co, as well as payment service for such orders (together, the “Service”).

1.3 Each contracting party may, at its own discretion and without liability, terminate these Terms of Use and all related Services at any time without notice. In this case, Kitchen & Co can choose to (i) terminate or suspend any or all of the Applications and/or Services; (including the availability of any data, databases or content); (ii) restrict access to the Applications and/or the Service; (iii) or refuse all or part of the Services and block or delete all or part of the associated data, especially your user account. Kitchen & Co will announce this by notifying you on the website or by notifying you via email. Kitchen & Co can also ask you to accept amended versions of these Terms of Use (including where such amendments are required due to changes to the Service or the Applications) with a click. In the event that these Terms of Use are amended, you can only continue to use the Services and/or the Applications if you agree to the changes. As this is a standardized offer, we cannot take into account changes that you make to the Terms of Use. If you do not agree to the amended Terms of Use, you must stop using the Services and the Applications.

1.4 We would like to point out that we use MENU Technologies AG (“MENU”) as an external service provider for the execution of orders and payment processing. However, you do not enter into a contractual relationship with MENU.

1.5 The collection and processing of personal data in connection with the Service is carried out in accordance with our data protection declaration under Kitchen & Co data protection declaration.

2. The Services and the Applications

2.1 The Applications may give you the option of paying for orders that you have placed with the service staff at the restaurant itself. In addition, certain participating restaurants can enable you to place and pay for orders for home deliveries using the Applications (except the application on a self-ordering kiosk).

2.2 The Applications therefore enable you to search and order meals and drinks in a participating restaurant. Your order triggers a process in the participating restaurant which results in Kitchen & Co and its service providers using your personal data, e.g. your contact details, phone number and your order information. When your order is ready to be picked up at the counter, you will be informed either via a push message (for orders placed via the mobile application) or via SMS message (for orders placed via the web application). If the restaurant you are visiting works with guest localization, your table number or your location in the participating restaurant will also be determined by means of table number entry (on the mobile and web application), placed transmitters or antennas (kiosks). In order to receive push messages, you must have push messages activated on your smartphone and to enable the determination of your location via transmitters or antennas you must have Bluetooth activated on your smartphone and give the application permission to determine your location. For orders that you place through the self-order kiosk, a puck may show you when your order is ready for collection at the counter or your order number is displayed on a screen. Your location can also be determined using a puck, which may be distributed to you at the self-order kiosk or at the counter or you may need to enter a number into the screen. You hereby authorize Kitchen & Co to disclose and process your orders, personal data and in particular your location data to participating restaurants in order to provide the Services.

2.3 The Services and the Application are only offered for your private, non-commercial use. Kitchen & Co is the platform operator of the Applications and obtains your personal data, such as orders, telephone number, email address, possibly home and / or delivery address and can use them for marketing purposes where consent to do so has been obtained. Each of Kitchen & Co’s restaurants can view your order and payment details for their respective restaurants. As a technology supplier, MENU provides the Kitchen & Co platform and can view your personal data. MENU provides Kitchen & Co within the Applications platform with functions and integrations that enable Kitchen & Co to communicate with you in a personalized form and to provide you with relevant information at the appropriate time.

2.4 There is no obligation for you to use the Services or the Applications; Kitchen & Co is also not obliged to offer you the Service or the Application, or to provide the Service successfully (in particular to place orders or settle payments).
