What are cookies?

Where we use the word ‘device’, we mean the computer, mobile phone, tablet or other device you use to access the internet.

Cookies are created when you visit a website that uses cookies. Cookies are small files of letters and numbers. These files are either stored in the memory of your device or are placed on the hard drive of your device.

If you’d like to read more about cookies, we think this website contains a lot of helpful information: http:/www.aboutcookies.org/default.aspx

 

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to distinguish you from other users of the Site and to provide increased functionality on the Site. This helps us to provide you with a better user experience and also allows us to work to improve the Site.

We don’t use any of our cookies to collect your personal information about you, only anonymous information. We don’t use any of our cookies to target you with online advertising.

Please note that not all the cookies on the Site are set by us (see Cookies set by third parties below) and that if you are accessing parts of the Site via our Pizza Hut Restaurants App (the “App”), these cookies will also be set on the device on which you use the App.

 

What cookies do we use?

We use two different types of cookie: Strictly Necessary Cookies and Performance Cookies.

Strictly Necessary Cookies – these are essential. Without them, you wouldn’t be able to move around the Site or use its features. We use these cookies to:

  • Allow your device to be recognised within a website so any page changes, item or data selection are remembered; and
  • Detect software on your device which enables content on the Site.

These cookies are only stored for the duration of your browsing session.

Performance Cookies – these cookies aren’t essential but they provide us with useful anonymous information about how people use the Site. Without them, it would be difficult for us to understand how the Site is performing and we may miss out on the opportunity to make improvements that could enhance your user experience. We use these cookies to:

  • Obtain statistics about how the Site is used (including which pages are visited most often and how users came to visit the Site);
  • Evaluate the Site’s performance; and
  • Help us ensure that the content and features on the Site are relevant for your future visits.

The cookies listed below are used on the Site. These are classified using the cookie categorisation provided by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

Analytics

Classification: Performance

The following four cookies are set by Google Analytics to track visits to the Site.   You can opt out of receiving these cookies by using the tool available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Name    Expires                 Description

_utma   2 years                  This cookie is written to the browser upon the first visit to the Site                                                           from that web browser. If the cookie has been deleted by the browser                                                operator, and the browser subsequently visits our site, a new utma cookie is                                  written with a different unique ID. This cookie is used to determine visitors                                        to our site and it is updated with each page view. Additionally, this cookie is                                      provided with a unique ID that Google Analytics uses to ensure both the                                              validity and accessibility of the cookies as an extra security measure.

_utmb   30 minutes        This cookie is used to establish and continue a user session with the Site. When a user views a page on the Site, the Google Analytics code attempts to update this cookie. If it doesn’t find the cookie, a new one is written and a new session is established. Each time a user visits a different page on the Site, this cookie is updated to expire in 30 minutes, thus continuing a single session for as long as user activity continues within 30-minute intervals. This cookie expires when a user pauses on a page on the Site for longer than 30 minutes.

_utmc   End of                   This cookie operate in conjunction with the utmb cookie to determine                 session                 whether or not to establish a new session for the user. In particular, this                                              cookie is not provided with an expiration date, so it expires when the user                                    exits the browser. Should a user visit the Site, exit the browser and then                                                         return to the Site within 30 minutes, the absence of utmc cookie                                                       indicates that a new session needs to be established, despite the fact that                                          the utmb cookie has not yet expired.
