What Personal Information Does Texas Chicken® Collect? We may offer features on our Web site, like games, which do not require a child to provide any personal information. On occasion, however, we may collect personal information, such as an email address, from children as part of an activity.

In that event, we will notify the child using the email address the child supplies. We will not keep the address or use it for any other purpose.
We may collect a child’s email address in order to respond to a request from the child on a one-time basis. In this case we promptly delete the email address from our system once we have responded, and we do not use the address for any other purpose.
We may offer children the opportunity to send cards, photos or links to games to their friends via our Web sites. In those cases, we may request the child’s first name and the first name(s) and/or email address(es) of the recipient(s). We delete such first names and email addresses after sending.
