To exercise a request, please fill out the form located here. We may require additional information from you such as email confirmation or other forms of identification based on the request to allow us to verify your identity.

  • The categories of personal information we have collected about you;
  • The categories of sources from which the personal information was collected;
  • The categories of personal information about you we disclosed for a business purpose or “sold” or “shared”;

Right to Delete. You have the right to request the deletion of personal information that we collected from you. Please note that if you are a Subway Loyalty® Rewards member, requesting deletion may require the deletion of your account which, upon completion, cannot be undone. Where we use deidentification, we may maintain de-identified data and will not attempt to reidentify the information in accordance with applicable law.

Right to Opt Out of “Sale” or “Share”. Subway® does not sell personal information for monetary consideration. However, as detailed in the chart above, we disclose certain categories of personal information to third parties for purposes that may be considered “selling” or “sharing” under California law. You have the right to opt-out of the selling or sharing of your personal information by us to third parties at any time. You may submit a request to opt-out by clicking Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information and following the instructions.

How to Exercise Your California Rights. To exercise any of these rights, please fill out this form or call our toll-free number at 800-888-4848. In the request, please specify which right you are seeking to exercise and the scope of the request. We may require specific information from you to help us verify your identity and process your request. This is a security measure to help ensure that your personal information is not disclosed to someone that does not have the right to receive it. If we are unable to verify your identity, we may deny your request.

You can designate an authorized agent to submit requests on your behalf. However, we will require written proof of the agent’s permission to do so and verify your identity directly. Please provide written proof via email to privacy@subway.com.

Please note that Subway® restaurants are franchised and are independently owned and operated. Their processing of personal information is subject to their own privacy policies. If you wish to exercise any of these rights with respect to the processing of information by a Subway® restaurant, please visit your local franchise-owned and operated store location to make your requests. We will work with the franchise owner to address your request to the extent required by applicable law.

Some browsers also allow you to tell websites not to disclose your information for cross-contextual behavioral advertising. To learn how to configure this setting, view here. Selections are browser and device specific. To opt out of cross-contextual behavioral advertising, you can also manage your selections here.

Notice of Financial Incentive

We offer the Subway MyWay® Rewards Program that provides certain perks, such as rewards and exclusive offers. You can enroll at Rewards & Deals | Subway® or through the Subway® App. Full Program terms can be found here . We may also provide other programs, such as sweepstakes, contest, or other similar promotional campaigns (collectively, the “Programs”) from time to time. The terms of each Program will be presented to you at the time you sign up. Participation in a Program is voluntary.

When you sign up for one of these Programs, we typically ask you to provide certain personal information, such as your name and contact information (such as email address). Because our Programs involve the collection of personal information, they might be interpreted as a “financial incentive” program under California law. The value of your personal information to us is related to the value of the free or discounted products or services, or other benefits that you obtain or that are provided as part of the Program, less the expense related to offering those products, services, and benefits to Program participants.

You may withdraw from participating in a Program at any time. You can withdraw from Subway MyWay® Rewards by removing the Subway® App from your device at any time or submitting a request here. If you maintain your account, you will still be able to use it to order and receive rewards using the Subway® website. Otherwise, you will need to use the guest checkout on the website to place an order.
