The Digital Services Act (the “DSA”) is a European Union Regulation which aims to create a safer digital space, protecting the fundamental rights of users, while establishing a level playing field for online intermediaries in their role of connecting consumers with goods, services, and content. The DSA entered into force on 16 November 2022.
Delivery Hero SE and its subsidiaries (the “Delivery Hero Group”) are fully committed to promoting a secure digital environment and tackling the dissemination of illegal content, as well as the societal risks that disinformation or otherwise harmful content may generate, in accordance with the DSA.
Information on average active monthly users
Pursuant to Article 24 (2) of the DSA, online platforms shall disclose information on the average monthly active recipients of the service in the Union, calculated as an average over the period of the past six months.
The Delivery Hero Group has calculated the average monthly active recipients of its services in accordance with the relevant provisions of the DSA and the guidance provided in Recital 77. Calculated for the six month period between 1 July 2022 and 31 December 2022, the average number has been estimated to be well below the threshold set for the designation of a Very Large Online Platform. The information and the methodology used for the calculation will be communicated to the European Commission (and to the competent Digital Services Coordinator of Germany, once designated).
Ongoing commitment and communications
In its mission to fully comply with the DSA, the Delivery Hero Group will continue to closely monitor the number of average monthly active recipients of its services in the EU and will update the information provided here every six months going forward, pursuant to Article 24 (2) of the DSA.
