Hi InsiwinsySpider,
 
When you send your location by sharing it with a link to someone, the App mentions that anyone with this link can see the location, there is no mention of temporality. The link essentially points to GPS coordinates, which as we know is like sharing your address since those cannot expire and will always remain a fixed point to where the latitude and longitude lines meet on planet Earth.
 
To the best of my knowledge there is no way to unsend coordinates to a location once they've been sent. I've tested a "waze . c o m / ul / shortlink" from 2018 where I was giving people the position of a restaurant and it still points to the correct lat/lon coordinates for that location on the map.
 
Depending on the delivery App you used, if you have concerns, I would ask them about how you can be sure that drivers don't have a way to keep conversations or addresses after the delivery is complete. If the chat functionality within the delivery App you used to sent the Waze link deletes conversations afterwards then it means the delivery person will have lost the link already.
