Correcting/Updating Personal Information
If a user's personally identifiable information changes (such as your zip code), or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user's personal data provided to us.
Any personally identifiable information collected by Taco Bueno is for special offer fulfillment purposes only, and that information is destroyed once the request or offer has been fulfilled. However, if you choose to opt-in for future offers and updates, your information will be kept in a secure database in order to alert you via e-mail or SMS/MMS message to new features, special offers, updated information and new services. Users who provide information at the time of registration or other submission will be asked whether they wish to receive future offers and updates from the website and may opt-in at that time by checking the appropriate opt-in box on the page where such personal information is collected. We will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.
Users who initially opt-in who no longer wish to receive our future offers or other promotional materials may subsequently opt-out of receiving these communications by emailing us at email@example.com and putting “Unsubscribe” in the subject line. Users who agree to receive SMS/MMS messages via Taco Bueno’s SMS/MMS program (“Taco Bueno Texts”) may opt-out of receiving future messages by texting "STOP" to 99355 from that user’s mobile phone. More information on Taco Bueno Texts may be found at tacobueno.com/terms-and-conditions. Users of our site are always notified when their information is being collected for use by any third parties (see Sharing above). We do this so our users can make an informed choice as to whether or not they should proceed with services that require sharing their personal information with a third party.
Notification of Changes
Taco Bueno adheres to the federal privacy protection standards articulated in the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). From time to time, certain sections of the Website are directed at children under the age of thirteen. On our websites for children, we do not collect personal information online from children under 13 without their parent's consent except in special, limited circumstances, described below. If a child is under 13 and wants to use our children's sites with special activities, we might ask the child to "register" by giving us a first name and his/her state of residence. When we ask for a child's first name, the child is encouraged to use a "screen name" (not his/her real name) that only the child knows. Sometimes we will ask the child to make up a special password so that only they can see their customized areas on the site. With parent's verifiable consent, we may collect personal information from a child such as an email address when the information is necessary for a particular activity. We usually will ask the child for his/her parent's email so that we get parental permission for a child to provide any personal information. When we ask for parental permission, we will tell the parents what we will do with the information his/her child provides us, and we will tell parents how they can review their child's information and ask us to delete the information. We don't keep parents’ (or children's) email address unless parents tell us it is ok. Taco Bueno 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. Taco Bueno deletes this information from our system after we answer the child's question. The Taco Bueno Webmaster 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, Taco Bueno has special site activities or promotions like sweepstakes or contests which are open to children even if they are under 13. In these activities, we will not 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 so that we can request information on how to send the child any prizes won 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 they have 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. A parent can always ask to review the information his/her child has submitted to us by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or a written request addressed to Taco Bueno Restaurants, L.P., 1605 LBJ Freeway Suite 800, Farmers Branch, TX 75234, Attn: Webmaster, Children's Online Privacy Act - Information Request. Requests must include the screen name of the child, the child's password and any other information which will allow us to verify that the requester is the parent of the child whose information is requested. A parent can ask us to delete a child's information at any time and a parent can ask that we do not collect any more personal information from his/her child, by sending us an email at email@example.com or a written request addressed to Taco Bueno Restaurants, L.P., 1605 LBJ Freeway Suite 800, Farmers Branch, TX 75234, Attn: Webmaster, Children's Online Privacy Act - Delete Request. However, if a parent asks us to delete his/her child's information, we may have to ask the child.
