Privacy Policy

Chipotle's Privacy Policy (Last updated November 19, 2004)

Thank you for visiting Chipotle’s website. Just in case you were curious about what we do with the information you provide during your visits to our website, this policy will tell you… so read on!

The Information Chipotle Collects and How Chipotle uses this Information

Chipotle only obtains information such as your name and email address when you provide it voluntarily. Chipotle uses its best efforts to protect this information and the privacy of its customers. For example, personal information may be collected from you to:

  • respond to your comments regarding a Chipotle restaurant;
  • respond to job inquiries and job applications submitted by you;
  • respond to information submitted by you (i.e. a haiku submitted by you that is posted on Chipotle’s web site); and
  • see what you think of our website.
Sharing of Personal Information

We keep your job inquiries and job applications confidential. However, Chipotle may share personal information within the company and with its affiliated companies. Occasionally, with your permission of course, we will send marketing information to you, such as discount coupons, information about new product offerings, etc. If you do not want to receive this stuff, we will not send it to you. But really, who in their right mind wouldn’t want free burritos!

Chipotle sometimes contacts other companies for a variety of reasons, such as fulfilling orders, assisting with promotions, and providing technical services for our website. These companies may have access to personal information if they need it to do their work. However, Chipotle will make these companies promise to use any personal information only for the purpose of performing their work.

Chipotle does not sell, transfer or disclose your personal information to any third parties. However, with your permission, Chipotle may occasionally send marketing information to you on behalf of one of our business partners. On our website, in our restaurants, or elsewhere, we may ask if you want to receive marketing materials from Chipotle’s business partners. If you want to receive this stuff, we’ll send it to you… if you don’t want it, just tell us and you won’t get it. But remember, Chipotle will not share your personal information with any of its business partners. We will just send a mailing or e-mail on behalf of the business partner.

Now for a little legal stuff… our lawyers made us put this in here! Chipotle reserves the right to use or disclose any information as needed to satisfy any law, regulation or legal request, to fulfill your requests, or to cooperate in any law enforcement investigation or an investigation on a matter of public safety.

Chipotle’s Privacy Policy Regarding Children

Chipotle is very sensitive to privacy issues regarding kids. At this time, however, our website is not directed at collecting personal information from kids.

We urge parents to regularly monitor and supervise their children’s on-line activities.


You are in control of any personal information you give us. If at any time, you want to correct the personal information we have about you, or if you want to change your preferences for contacts from us or on behalf of our business partners, send us an e-mail or a letter. We’re not mind readers you know!

Although our website is not intended to collect personal information from kids under the age of 13, to review any personal information that your child may have submitted to Chipotle, to ask us to delete that information or to stop further use of the information, please submit this information request form.

We have Cookies!

Well, actually, not that kind of cookie. Like most websites, Chipotle uses “cookies” for a variety of purposes to improve your visits to our website! “Cookies” are pieces of information that a website transfers to the hard drive on your computer for record-keeping purposes. These cookies will allow the website to remember important information that will make your use of the website more convenient. For example, we track the total number of visitors to our site on an anonymous aggregate basis. We also use cookies so that we remember you when you return to the website.

If you don’t like cookies, use the options in your web browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. Click on the ""Help"" section of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. But remember, if you disable all cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of all the exciting features of this website.

Chipotle’s Web Site Security

Any and all personal information you provide to Chipotle is stored securely offline. But Chipotle may, where expressly stated on its website, post certain submissions on its website (i.e. Haiku submissions).

In the event you send Chipotle an email, please remember that the e-mail is not necessarily secured against interception by another party. So if you do not want any sensitive personal information to be subject to this risk (i.e. information that you may supply as part of a job application), please contact us by mail or telephone at:

Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc.
1401 Wynkoop St., Ste. 500
Denver, CO 80202

Links to Other Sites

Some of our web pages offer links to websites other than the Chipotle website. If you visit one of these linked sites, you are then subject to the privacy policies and other policies of the new website and are no longer protected by our policies. We are not responsible for, or able to monitor or control the policies and practices of other companies.

Changes to Chipotle’s Privacy Policy

From time to time, Chipotle may change this privacy policy. Thus, you should check here periodically to see if anything has changed. Rest assured, however, that any changes will not be retroactively applied and will not alter how we handle previously collected information.
