gokfc.com adheres to the federal privacy protection standards articulated in the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).
The KFC Chicagoland and NW Indiana Advertising Co-op might collect some information from your child under 13 without your consent, but only in the following special cases: If a child under 13 sends a request to us, we keep their email address for long enough to respond to them. The KFC Chicagoland and NW Indiana Advertising Co-op deletes this information from our system after we answer the child's question. The KFC Chicagoland and NW Indiana Advertising Co-op will be the only person who receives, collects or maintains children's submitted information, even temporarily, through the Website. The Webmaster will not use such information for any purpose, including marketing back to the child. The Webmaster will not disclose information collected from children to third parties.
Occasionally, the KFC Chicagoland and NW Indiana Advertising Co-op may have special site activities or promotions like sweepstakes or contests which are open to children even if they are under 13. In these activities, we are not allowed to ask for more information from a child than what is necessary for a child to participate in the activity. For instance, we might ask for a parent's email address to tell a parent when his/her child has won.
In the last two situations when we ask for information without parental consent, we require the child to give us his/her parent's email address, so that we can tell the parent that the child has registered in a promotion or for a service. Any information a child gives us in the above special circumstances will be deleted from our database once the promotion, program or activity is concluded, and after any legally required period for keeping such information is complete.
We also might collect contact information where it is necessary to protect a child's safety.
