Upcoming updates to the Uber Eats agreements in Japan

From 1 December 2019, we will be localizing our Uber Eats business which will lead to update in your Uber Eats agreement. A local company, Uber Portier Japan, Inc., will provide the lead generation services which will connect you with restaurants and consumers. Uber Portier B.V. will continue to license you the Uber Eats applications. The services and the Uber Eats applications will continue to operate in the same way as before.

It's understandable that you might have questions about this update, and how it impacts your circumstances as a business. We've included an FAQ below to provide more clarity around any questions you might have. If you don't see an answer to your question, please reach out to us from the form below.
