McDonald's Restaurants: UK & Republic of Ireland

What is this registration form about?

In line with government guidance, we are supporting official contact tracing initiatives by asking our Eat-In customers to provide certain details to us. Contact tracing allows people who may have been close to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 to be made aware of that fact so that they can self-isolate.  It’s a key part of the ongoing COVID-19 response and can help break infection chains.  We will hold your details as a temporary record of your visit so that you can be contacted by public health authorities in the event that someone else who ate in the restaurant which you visited reports that they have tested positive for COVID-19 and public health authorities deem it necessary in the circumstances to inform you.

What information am I requested to provide in the form?

Eat in customers will be asked to complete details of their name, phone number*, arrival time, planned duration of stay (and if they are in Scotland the number of people in their group). When completing this form, we also capture the date that a visit was made.

*    If you are under 16 please see "I am under 16: should I complete the form?" section below.

What will you do with the information that you collect?

We will only use the information that you provide for contact tracing purposes.  Here's how contact tracing works.

If you or a person who has been in this restaurant at the same time as you later test(s) positive for COVID-19, public health authorities may ask us to share the record of our customers who also ate in this restaurant with them. We will then supply those authorities with the information that you have provided to us today, so that they can notify you and other customers as they deem appropriate.

We will not share your information with anyone else and we will not use it for any other purpose. We will only hold the information for a short period - 21 days in the UK and 28 days if you are in the Republic of Ireland - after which it will be securely deleted.

Do I have to complete this registration form?

It is mandatory to complete this registration form unless you are under the age of 16. 


How long will you keep my information for?

If you are in the UK, we will only keep the information that you have provided for 21 days. If you are in the Republic of Ireland, we will keep it for 28 days. After this period, the information will be securely deleted.

If during this period we are asked to share your information with public health authorities, they will keep a copy of it in accordance with their own policies.

Will you share my information with public health authorities?

We will not share your information, unless we are asked to. Public health authorities may ask us to share this information if another person who has been in the restaurant at the same time as you is later tested positive for COVID-19.



I am in a group: do we all have to complete this form?

In the Republic of Ireland, if two or more people eat together, it is mandatory to collect the contact details of one member of every party. If you are the person completing the form, please keep a note of who is accompanying you in our restaurant today. We will not ask to see this but if you are contacted by public health authorities, they will ask you to provide this information so that they can contact everyone who was with you.

If you are not in the Republic of Ireland, then each individual in the group will need to fill the form on their own behalf. Where necessary you may also be asked by our staff to provide evidence of the details you provided being accurate for example by showing your driver’s license or other suitable identification for us to compare against your details in the form.

If you are under 16, please see the section immediately below.


I am under 13: should I complete the form?

If you are on your own or if all of the people in your group are under the age of 16, you do not have to provide your contact details (unless there are local rules in place that require you to provide them in which case our staff members will ask you to complete this form) but you can choose to do so if you would like to participate in contact tracing. If you would like to participate please enter your name into the form, but provide the phone number of your parent or guardian instead of your own number.  This is the phone number that we will pass to public health authorities (and which they will call) if the contact tracing process is initiated.

I am not close to any other customer: should I still complete the form?

Although it is not likely that you will be close to other people while eating in our restaurant, it is mandatory to complete this form in line with government guidance as contact tracing is part of wide public health initiative.


I want to make a take away order: do I need to complete the form?

No. The form is for our Eat-In customers only.


If I am contacted, does this mean that I am infected?

If public health authorities contact you, this does not mean that you are necessarily infected. If a contact tracer gets in touch with you, they will explain any steps that you need to take to protect yourself and others around you.
