If you have a taste for fine Italian food, you may have heard about the Slice App. This online food ordering platform lets independent pizzeria owners offer their products online. Users can place their orders for a slice through their Slice App or through their social media channels. This article will discuss how Slice App violates the privacy of users’ personal information. What is it? Read on to find out! After all, no one wants to be tracked!
Slice is a pizza ordering platform
Slice is a pizza delivery service that works with over 16,000 pizzerias in the United States. It charges consumers a fixed price per order, unlike other third-party delivery services. Instead of couriers and drivers, consumers use the app to order and pay for the food. As of July 2017, Slice is available in all 50 states and has over 16,000 shops. Despite its success, it still has some growing pains.
Founded in 2010, Slice is a startup that helps independent pizzerias take advantage of online ordering and payment. Its founder, Ilir Sela, hails from Macedonian heritage and has a large extended family of pizzeria owners. The company has raised more than $20 million in venture capital from investors and aims to help pizzerias get on the road faster. Ilir Sela hopes that Slice can help local pizzerias stay competitive in the digital age.
It charges pizzerias a flat fee
The Slice App is an online platform that charges pizzerias a flat $2.25 per order. With its vast network, the app earns a healthy revenue from pizzerias while charging them a fair price for their products. The service also does not charge markups to customers. The company aims to generate more than $1 billion in online sales by 2021. In addition to the pizza delivery service, Slice also charges pizzerias a one-time $2.25 per order, which is comparable to GrubHub and UberEats.
The underlying mission of Slice is to preserve local pizza shops. The company launched a new initiative last month called Slice Accelerate, which will provide up to $15,000 worth of technology and services to 100 selected pizzerias. The funding will help these businesses compete with franchises and third-party apps that prey on local businesses. And while this is a start, it’s not enough.
It offers a year of free pizza to 50 part-time critics
The Slice App is hiring 50 part-time critics to review and share the latest pizzas in their area. The competition is open to any registered Slice App user over the age of 21. If you are interested in taking part, apply today. The deadline for the contest is July 30. The 50 chosen representatives will receive a year’s worth of free pizza and other perks, including a $500 travel stipend, content creation kit, and discounts at participating pizzerias. The winners will be announced on August 13 and awarded a prize package that includes a free pizza for a year.
The Slice App offers a job that pays well. For example, as the Head of Pizza, you’ll receive a year’s worth of free pizza. The perks include 52 weekly credits of $25, a yearly value of $1,300. In addition to free pizza, you’ll receive a $500 “toward travel” stipend in the form of four $125 Visa gift cards sent quarterly. Of course, this money is contingent on fulfilling your obligations as Head of Pizza.
It violates privacy of users’ personal data
A recent alert regarding Slice App’s violation of privacy of users’ personal data has made some people wonder whether the company really aims to protect their users’ privacy. The company has reiterated their commitment to protect users’ personal data and not collect call logs, audio recordings, or photos. However, the company does seek limited permissions from users in order to function properly. In addition, the company recently added UPI services to its app.
According to the alert, Slice only authorizes access to your Personal Information for purposes related to the app’s functioning. This is done through accepting the terms and conditions. Slice may share your information with third-party contractors, but they must maintain the same level of privacy protection as slice. Moreover, the company may also make your information available to non-affiliated third parties. If you don’t approve of the disclosure of your personal information to third-party companies, you can uninstall the app and try again.
