2. How We Collect Your Personal Information

We may collect information about you from you (including when you create an account, engage with customer service, make a purchase, or fill out a survey) and from other companies and organizations.  We may also collect information that is publicly available (i.e. social media).

8. Your Privacy Choices and Rights

Depending on your U.S. state of residence, you may have certain rights in relation to your Personal Information, including:

  • Right to Know: You may have the right to know what Personal Information we have collected about you, including the categories of sources from which the Personal Information is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collecting, selling, or sharing Personal Information, the categories of third parties to whom we disclose Personal Information, and the specific pieces of Personal Information we have collected about you.

  • Right to Data Portability: You may have the right to access your information in a portable format.
  • Right to Delete: You may have the right to request that we delete Personal Information that we have collected from you, subject to certain exceptions.

  • Right to Opt Out of Certain Types of Personal Information Uses and Disclosures: We use and disclose to third parties’ Personal Information for analytics and advertising purposes. Accordingly, you may have the right to opt out of the “sale” or “sharing” of your Personal Information, or the use and disclosure of your Personal Information for “targeted advertising” (as these terms are defined in applicable law).

Please note that, where permitted under applicable law, we may decline a request if we are unable to verify your identity (or an agent’s authority to make the request) and confirm the Personal Information we maintain relates to you.

Exercising Your Privacy Rights

To exercise your privacy rights, please submit a consumer request to us by:

We may take steps to verify your identity before responding to your request by asking you a series of questions about your previous interactions with us. Submitting a privacy rights request does not require you to create an account with us.

We will not discriminate against you if you decide to exercise your privacy rights.

Agent Requests

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may submit a request related to your Personal Information. You may also submit a request on behalf of your minor child.

Depending on your U.S. state of residence, you may designate an authorized agent to request any of the above rights on your behalf. You may make such a designation by providing the agent with written permission, signed by you, to act on your behalf.  Your agent may contact us as set forth below in “How to Contact Church’s Texas Chicken® USA” to make a request on your behalf.  Even if you choose to use an agent, as permitted by law, we may require verification of the agent’s authorization to act on your behalf, require you to confirm you have authorized the agent to act on your behalf, or require you to verify your own identity.

Opt-Out Requests

You may request to opt out of the sale or sharing of your Personal Information, or of targeted advertising, at any time by clicking the “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” link here or at the bottom of our website homepages, or you can email us at

Submitting an opt-out request does not require you to create an account with us.

Alternatively, you can use certain preference signals to exercise your sale and sharing opt-out right automatically with all businesses that you interact with online, including Church’s®. If you enable a browser-based opt-out preference signal, such as Global Privacy Control (GPC), upon receipt or detection, we will treat the signal as a valid request to opt out of the sale or sharing of Personal Information linked to that browser and any consumer profile we have associated with that browser. Please note that if you use different browsers or browser profiles, you will have to enable the signal on each browser or profile.

Right to Appeal

Depending on your U.S. state of residence, you may have the right to appeal a decision we have made in connection with your privacy rights request. To appeal a decision, please contact us at

Marketing Communications Rights and Choices

If you have agreed to receive marketing communications from us, you can later opt out by following the opt-out instructions in the marketing communications we send you.

You can also generally find your communication preferences with instructions on how to opt out in the profile section of the online services that you use.

You may also have the ability to change your communication preferences using your device settings.

If you do opt out of receiving marketing communications from us, we may still send communications to you about your transactions, any accounts you have with us, and any contests, competitions, prize draws or sweepstakes you have entered. Opting out of one form of communication does not mean you have opted out of other forms as well. For example, if you opt out of receiving marketing emails, you may still receive marketing text messages if you have opted in to receiving them. Please note that if you are receiving communications from a Church’s Texas Chicken® franchise, then you will need to opt out from them directly.

Behavioral Advertising Opt-Out

You may be able to opt out of receiving certain targeted or interest-based advertisements using the browser opt-out tools and consumer choice mechanisms provided by advertising industry self-regulatory groups by following the links below:

You also can control whether you see interest-based advertisements on your mobile device(s) in the following ways:

  • Your device operating system may provide mechanisms that allow you to opt in or opt out of the use of information about your use of mobile apps to deliver interest-based advertising to your mobile device. For more information, consult your device settings.
  • The DAA offers a tool for opting out of the collection of cross-app data on mobile devices for interest-based advertising. To exercise your choices with respect to participating companies, please download the AppChoices tool at

You will need to opt out separately on all of your browsers and devices, as each opt out will apply only to the specific browser or device from which you opt out. If you delete or reset your cookies or mobile identifiers, change browsers, or use a different device, any opt-out cookie or tool may no longer work and you will have to opt out again.

Even if you choose to opt out of receiving interest-based advertising, you may still receive advertising, but the advertisements may be less relevant.

Some of our partners may provide you with additional choices with respect to interest-based advertising. For example, certain social media platforms allow you to control your advertising preferences directly through their services. Please review the privacy policies of the third-party services you use for more information.
