Fast-food chain Apache Pizza has told customers it has been impacted by a data breach.
The company - which has more than 150 outlets across the country - says some personal data may have been compromised, although credit card details are not impacted.
In an email to customers, Apache said they were notified of the data breach on Wednesday June 2nd.
It's been confirmed that names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers and pizza orders were likely accessed by the hackers.
Some dates of birth are also likely to have been accessed, related to those who've placed birthday orders.

The company said: "Our databases do not contain bank account numbers or credit card details of our customers - so you don't have to worry about that data falling into the wrong hands."
The Data Protection Commission has been notified, with Apache also now in contact with gardaí.
In the email, Apache moved to reassure customers it's safe to share delivery information again.
However, it's warning customers to not click on any links or respond to any emails they are unsure about, as the breach means some personal data may be published and be used in 'phishing' attempts by scammers.
Experts recommend that users change their password after any data breach, and ensure it's not the same used for any of your other accounts.
A number of firms have been impacted by data breaches over the past year, including Fastway Couriers back in March.
