Privacy Policy

It is important for you to know how we collect, store and use the personal information that you give to us on this and any other of our websites or mobile applications (including www.careersatpizzahut.co.uk and www.pizzahutfranchise.co.uk). First of all, Pizza Hut stores in the UK and Republic of Ireland are owned and operated by either Yum! III (UK) Limited or by one of its franchisees. Pizza Hut and its franchisees are all committed to protecting your privacy but each Pizza Hut franchisee is an independent business and is responsible for the operation of its own stores. This means that each franchisee is also responsible for ensuring its own compliance with data protection and other laws.

In this policy, references to "Pizza Hut", "we", "us" or "our" do not include Pizza Hut franchisees – they refer to Yum! III (UK) Limited. If you would like to talk to any of our franchisees about their privacy policies, please contact that store or franchisee directly. The privacy policy for our Pizza Hut dine-in stores can be found here.

The terms of this Privacy Policy apply to all users of our websites and apps. If you do not agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy, you should immediately cease the use of the website or app as applicable. Below you will find answers to several questions regarding our revised Privacy Policy.

Personal information means information which on its own or in combination with other information, allows identification of an individual. We will collect personal information about you which you voluntarily provide, for example, in the context of completing online forms on the websites or within the apps or by corresponding with us, including in-store and by telephone.

In order for us to achieve some of the things we have set out above, Pizza Hut may need to share your personal information which it collects with carefully chosen third parties. These may include:
