i understand the recipient does not need to be a databricks user, even if we use databricks hosted delta sharing server. so do recipients access the data by rest api calls to the share url ? are there concepts such as “refresh” or “cache” ?

No, the sharing protocol passes back pre-signed URLs to the parquet files, and the client then uses them to fetch the data files. Because of that, the client does not need access to cloud credentials etc.. As long as they have access to the cloud storage provider HTTP endpoints, they will be able to access the data.
