Pizza Hut sent out an apology letter today following a mass e-mail that mistakenly left it’s servers Wednesday. The e-mail which was sent to the chains current e-mail subscribers list, offered a sports promotion of 2 Medium pizzas, 1 one-topping and 1 specialty or up to 3 toppings. The e-mail was apparently sent during some testing that the pizza delivery chain was doing to better their e-mail functionality. In the apology Pizza Hut says, “It was not theintent of Pizza Hut for this email to besent to you. We apologize for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused. We value your relationship with us and understand that communicating with you via email is a privilege not to be taken lightly. We have identified the cause of the mistake and have taken steps to make sure this does not happen again.”
In addition to the apology Pizza Hut mentions an update to their privacy
policy in the e-mail. However, whether or not the update was in relation to the
accidental e-mail is unclear. My question is, where’s my free pizza? And do you
suppose they will start offering spam on their pizza’s?
