Why is personal information collected when you visit our website?
We are aware that many persons who we do not sponsor access our website for program information. We will never ask for your personal information until you request to be contacted by one of our representatives. Furthermore, we will never ask for your credit card numbers, and therefore do not use an SSL certificate.
We take reasonable measures to protect the information that we collect from you or about you. However, please be aware that no method of transmitting information over the Internet is completely secure, and therefore we cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.

This newsletter has primarily been sent via mail but with the ability to download it online, and as of 2017 it will be made available through email. If you wish to receive the quarterly newsletters in your inbox, you will be prompted for your email address. Please keep in mind that the email you provide will be kept confidential and will not be offered to third party services. The newsletter is only available to the sites we sponsor and the government agencies we work with.

Your children's information
Protecting the privacy of children is important, and at Child Food Program of Texas we always put the children first. It is for this reason that we will never collect personal information regarding a daycare child over the Internet. Any information we seek will be done in person or over the phone. Although we have no way of knowing exactly who contacts us through our forms, we advise you to be sure that children under 13 are not left unattended on the Internet. In the event that we learn we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.
If you believe that we may have acquired information from or about a child under the age of 13, please contact us immediately at 281-395-7000
