  • when you want to show that you qualify for certain discount offers (e.g. our NHS or student discounts or promotions), we may ask for your student or NHS ID or ask for your first name, surname, date of birth, email address, college or university (for students) or medical institution and position held (for NHS staff) to verify that you qualify;

Some of the personal information that you provide may include sensitive personal information, such as health-related information when you make a complaint or suffer an incident in one of our restaurants (see above). We need this information to investigate the complaint or incident and (if necessary) report it to health or other authorities, law enforcement agencies, our insurers and any suppliers who may be involved. We may also collect information about the names of others in your party, and any other information needed for the purposes of the investigation.

Please note that Free Wi-Fi is not available for persons under 18 years old. If you are under 18 years old, you will need to ask a parent or other responsible adult to sign in for you.



We know how important your personal information is so we will only ever collect and use your personal information for a lawful reason relating to our business. Generally, this means that we will use your personal information:

  • to carry out a contract with you or because you have asked us to take specific steps, for example, ordering food, arranging delivery or collection, applying a discount, processing payment of your bill, allowing you to connect to free Wi-Fi at our restaurants, investigating and handling complaints or considering your CV or employment application;
  • because we have to comply with the law and applicable regulations,
  • where you give us your consent to process your personal data such as providing you with special offers, discounts, news and information about us which may be of interest to you (we think you’ll love receiving these but, if not, you can opt out at any time);
  • for legitimate legal purposes such as updating and maintaining our records, retaining your details so you can log in quicker in the future, preventing or detecting fraud or abuses of our website or our Free Wi-Fi service, issuing vouchers for use in our restaurants, enabling third parties to carry out technical, logistical or other functions on our behalf to make our apps, website and Digital Channel more useful to you; for personalised service and communications, targeted and online behavioural advertising: analytics and profiling of guests; monitoring website usage and offer performance / conversion; guest surveys and data analytics to understand how we are doing, whether we are meeting our guests’ needs and seeking ways we can improve our products, services, communications and offers; the administration of our Digital Channels; the administration and management of our competitions, promotions and prize draws – you should check the applicable terms and conditions of the competition, promotion or prize draw for further information; for obtaining customer feedback (including through customer satisfaction surveys);
  • where required by external parties we deal with such as our insurers (e.g. where there has been an accident or incident in one of our restaurants), suppliers (if there has been a food-related incident) or where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of any legal claims.

We would like to keep you informed of Barburrito news and offers by email and other electronic means. When you sign up to our Barburrito app, we will use the data we collect from you to send you Barburrito specific marketing communications by email. You can tell us at registration if you do not wish to receive these and you may opt out of such communication or change your marketing preferences at any time by unsubscribing. If you no longer want to receive such special offers, discounts, news and information, you can either:

  • simply click on “unsubscribe” at the foot of the email or text and we will take you off our marketing and promotions list or
  • if you have registered for Barburrito offers, rewards or vouchers, log into your account on the Barburrito appand change your preferences at any time.

We want you to be clear on what we do with your personal information. We will keep your personal information secure and never sell your personal information to anyone. We do use sub-contractors to carry out certain functions on our behalf and occasionally have to disclose your personal information (for example, to provide specific services to you or dealing with insurers or public authorities like the police). This is described more fully below:

Sub-contractors, suppliers and agents: from time to time we employ other companies to perform functions on our behalf including taking orders and fulfilling order deliveries, designing and sending guest communications, providing guest vouchers, analysing data, providing elements of our IT or back-up systems, providing marketing assistance, processing payments, improving our services and providing customer service. They may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to use it for other purposes and cannot modify, disclose, or erase your data without our instructions.

Legal reasons: we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or regulation (e.g. food safety), (ii) in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm, to enforce or protect any of our rights, property or safety (or those of our customers), and/ prevent any financial loss in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

Fraud / Credit Risk: where necessary to prevent fraud or reduce credit risk, we may exchange your personal information with other companies and organisations.

Business transfers: in any corporate transactions (e.g. buying or selling of businesses, stores or business units) personal information is generally one of the transferred assets. We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets, however that would always be under conditions of strict confidentiality and limited to the specific purpose.

Sending data outside the UK or of Europe: we generally do not transfer your personal information to countries outside the UK and the European Union. However, some of our appointed carriers, sub-contractors, suppliers and agents may transfer, use or store data in other countries. Where this is the case, they are obliged to ensure that there is equivalent protection for your personal information as would be the case within the UK and the European Union. We have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In absence of an adequacy decision, these safeguards may include:

  • implementing the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal information by a data controller established in the United Kingdom to a processor established in a third country which does not offer adequate level of protection; or
  • engaging with third parties who participate in the EU-US Data Privacy Framework (“EU-US DPF”) and the UK Extension to the EU-US Data Privacy Framework.

Analytics and profiling: in order to offer you a more personalised experience in your interactions with us, information collected through one source may be combined with information we obtain through other sources. This may include information that allows us to identify you across multiple devices through which you access our websites. We may also supplement the information we collect with information obtained from other parties, including our business partners and other third parties to create customised profiles about you. Examples of how we may use this information include using your data to help us to improve your experience using our website, to present you with options tailored to your preferences and for targeted advertising purposes.

Our Digital Channels may contain links to other websites, mobile sites and apps and certain services provided by third parties (e.g. Wi-Fi services available in Barburrito stores) are available for use by customers. Please note this privacy policy only applies to our channels and services. When you link to other websites, mobile sites, or apps, or use services provided by third parties (e.g. Wi-Fi services available in Barburrito stores) we are not responsible or liable for them. You should read the privacy policies for those linked sites, apps or services before you submit any personal information to them.
